I have always been a huge fan of Playskool toys. I have 4 small children who love all kinds of toys, but Playskool is definitely a brand that we have LOTS of. They are always coming up with fun new ideas and the best test is whether or not they can hold the attention of my kids for longer than 5 minutes.
The latest review opportunity was for 3 different brand new infant and toddler toys: Elefun Busy Ball Popper, World of Wheel Pals Play ‘N Go Barn, and the Tonka Chuck & Friends.
I will start with the Elefun Popper. This was the kid’s favorite. There are five colorful balls that you drop into the elephant’s ears and they then pop out of the trunk or roll into the belly. The elephant’s trunk rotates 360 degrees and the toy plays ten different songs. This kept the kids busy for about 30 minutes – enough time for me to get some work done – yay! The only downside to this toy is that it takes 4 D Batteries, which many people don’t have just lying around. Thank God I had some otherwise I wouldv’e had some cranky kids bothering me all day to go buy batteries. But other than that. The toy was a hit.
The second toy was the World of Wheel Pals Barn. My6 1 1/2 yr old was a big fan of the little animals on wheels. What was really neat about the toy was that the barn folds up with the animals inside. Would be a great toy to take with you somewhere. And what a cute idea to have animals on wheels. As you know boys love ANYTHING that have wheels.
The last toy was the Tonka Chuck and friends. Each set comes with 4 characters and a little book to go along with them. It is neat to be able to read the story and have the character toys to play and pretend with.
So, if you are looking for some fun gifts for your infant or toddler, I definitely recommend these. And if you want to learn more about these toys or other Playskool products, check out the Playskool Facebook Fanpage!
