Magnetic Let's Play Diggers

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best..., 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If this was the only magnet book my little boy owned perhaps I'd be a little more impressed with it. However we have a few of these type of books including usborne and peppa pig ones, they were all similarly priced but are much higher quality. These magnets are thin and flimsy. Although there is a decent amount of magnets there is not a good range of vehicles. For example there are 4 diggers, 2 dumper trucks and 2 bulldozers so not great for building vocabulary on the different vehicles found on a building site! Also the yellow and orange diggers are very similar in colour so it is often hard for my 2 year old to tell the difference between the two. As for the lighthouse, well what does that have to do with building sites or diggers?? Entirely pointless. The main purpose of these books is to practise positioning language and skills, so "The red digger is next to the skip" or "The cement mixer is in front of the traffic cones" Although this book contains a few of these directions I don't feel they are clear enough. It is basically not fit for purpose and due to the poor quality the back page is already peeling with minimum usage. Save your money and buy a different brand!

5.0 out of 5 stars two year old is chuffed to bits, 27 Mar. 2014

Easy enough for my two year old to operate and sturdy too! Brilliant toy and a big hit in our house. Yes the batterys do run out fast but so do many high powered toys, be sure to turn it off at the bottom after each use to save battery power :)

These paints are excellent value for money. They mix well, are vibrant and cover well... we are big crafters in my house and often junk modelling can turn out rubbish if the paint colour doesn't cover properly but these keep their bright colour on all sorts of materials such as fabric/cardboard boxes/ toilet roll tubes and are also perfect for palin old painting on paper! very happy

This review is from: Animal Soundtracks (Toy)
Such a good idea. My two year old wants to play this every single day despite owning more toys and games than toys r us! It is his absolute favourite and I like it because I'm sure it is increasing his concentration and listening skills alongside knowledge of different animal noises! Very happy and looking into the other sets for his birthday.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best duplo sets..., 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Duplo can be expensive and a lot of the sets hardly seem worth it. However I was so impressed with this set, for £50 we got a car, bike, helicopter and police station with two rooms which can be built in two different ways (either side by side as shown in picture or on top to make a two storey building) Highly recommend purchasing the add on items as they include more figures and increase game play options greatly. We have another police bike (white one) and the police truck. My two year old was over the moon with this on christmas morning (2014)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very impressed with this set. Bought as a christmas present for my car-crazy two year old and as the controllers can be 'locked' so the cars don't go over a certain speed and fly off the track it is perfect for him. After choosing from the box front which of the 8 possible tracks he wants me to build for him (takes no more than five minutes to put together!) he will sit happily pulling on the controllers and shouting at the cars to "Go faster!" and "You can do it orange car!" for a good hour which for a two year old is an amazing amount of time! Comes with plenty of spare wirey bits for the bottom which seem to be the flimsiest part of the entire set and a lap counter which to buy separately is quite expensive so I would say it is brilliant value for money as I'm sure this will keep his attention for many years! Also the 'locking' of the controllers is easily and quickly (literally one turn) done with a screwdriver so if the bigger boys want to play with him they can simply 'unlock' one controller and play without being bored by speed capping :)

This review is from: Playmobil 6754 123 Large Zoo (Toy)
I bought this as a Christmas present for my little boy when he was about 18months, he loved pointing at and learning the animal noises, chewing on the chunky animals, knocking down the enclosures, pushing the tractor around and taking it all apart, especially pulling the fence pieces apart. He is now nearly three and still loves getting out his "animal zoo" along with the forest park add-on (which is brilliant!) He can set the whole scene up himself and is at an age where he can act out scenarios with the people and animals. Brilliant value for money when you start looking at the older models of playmobil and considering the sturdiness and length of play. Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars such a brilliant idea..., 30 July 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
My 2 year old absolutely loves this duplo set. He loves cars and building bricks and small world play.... and this is all three in one toy! He can easily fit the pieces together himself and is quite happy to create cars by himself but we also enjoy following the instructions and building the cars together, a lovely toy!

= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This has very quickly become a firm favourite with my 1 year old son, who is the biggest in the night garden fan. He loves to get it out while he watch's the programme and pick up each character as they come on screen. Lots of fun for not too much money!
