These friction toy cars are a must for all toddlers and young children. The move a lot further than the amount they are pushed due to their internal mechanism. This means that the slightest push will see the cute cars travelling across your floor.
Made out of solid, sturdy, durable heavy plastic, these cars are colourful and they each feature a cute animal driver. You get 4 cars in the box and they can be pushed forwards or backwards and, when released, they continue moving.
These attractive, fun toy cars will keep toddlers entertained at home or in a nursery setting for hours. A really good toy.
This pack of party favours for children are perfect for mid-to-late-aged children. It features 30 pieces split between 2 items. I received a selection of snap or slap bands that, when you slap them onto your arm, magically twist around to create a strap of sorts. They are great fun to try out, even for the bigger kids that we all are!
These party bag fillers also contained a selection of silicone bracelets of Pop-Its. These are the ideal stress relief fidget toys as they work like reusable bubble wrap. The bracelets are quite long so not suitable for very small children. I use a Pop It fidget toy my self and have added a bracelet (pictured) for my own use. I use to it stop me from peeling the nails of my fingers and they work a treat. Perfect for neurodiverse children of all ages.
I received this Talking flash card set, that boasts 224 words, so that my wife could use it with any English as an Additional Language children in the nursery where she works as a learning aid.
The reader, featuring a cute cat design, is very appealing and a good size and weight for little hands. It comes with lots of cards featuring 224 words as advertised. We chose this version as it specifically mentioned that it was designed for British English. It contains words for animals, including the sounds they make, objects, foods and drinks and many other categories.
On the whole, this card set works very well and does what it describes. When you insert a card, the reader says the word aloud, teaching the child using it what the picture is named. The reason I have given it such a poor rating is because, as specifically described as a British English set, some words are pronounced strangely and many cards are American English not British. For example: eggplant instead of aubergine, agitator truck instead of cement mixer, backhoe instead of digger and subway instead of underground or tube. This aside, the reader works as it should and is still a valuable tool, just be mindful if you are British that a few words don’t translate.
I received this cat toy as part of my Amazon Vine membership. I have wanted a mechanical cat toy for a few years and this does not disappoint. In the box you receive a USB cable for charging the toy (so no need to constantly be searching for new batteries when it runs out of power), the orange toy and 2 heads with rope attached. Attaching the rope to the orange toy is very simple, it just clicks into place and you’re ready to go. Charging takes around 2 hours from empty. On first powering the toy on, it enters Fast mode which, in my hand, looked incredibly fast and aggressive. However, when on the floor the level of activity makes sense as it flicks and rolls itself around the floor. Press the power button once and it enters a slower mode for a more sedate action. I used this toy mainly on the Interactive mode where it lays dormant but starts moving when a cat moves it or pounces on it. At first my cat was skeptical and unsure of the new ‘alien creature’ that was in our living room, but soon she was sniffing and poking it. As she got used to the toy, she began to stalk it and pounce on it. I have used it in Interactive mode for 48 hours straight and it still has charge left and it definitely holds my cat’s attention when she wants to play. The fact that it is rechargeable is a huge bonus for me. The ropes are securely attached to the toy and look hardwearing. It’s fun, even if my wife commented that it ‘looks like an alien!’
