When WOW recently asked me if The Boy and I wished to review one of their toys I must confess that I had not heard of them before. After just two minutes browsing their website though I could not accept fast enough.
The designs on show were super cute and their major focus is that none of their toys require any batteries. Yep, NO BATTERIES. If you have kids of your own I am sure you will understand the huge wave of relief those two simple words can create.
Loving all-things-dinosaur at Casa B we could not resist the Dino-Adventure set and eagerly awaited it’s arrival. However, upon it’s arrival I did wish that The Boy was perhaps not quite so excited. Each piece was so firmly secured with fiddly plastic cables requiring use of some very sharp scissors, and the odd muttered curse, that it would have been much easier had he not been over my shoulder and under my feet at the same time literally bursting with excitement. I would strongly advise removing all packaging prior to wrapping this as a gift for children as the wait was almost unbearable for him.
That is where all the negativity ends though. Once released from their packaging these toys are, quite simply, awesome.
They are bright, colourful, robust, interesting, imaginative and there are no small parts to worry about.
Jimmy the Jeep is a motorised toy with a detachable magnetic trailer. This carries one of the two cavemen figures as a driver and the dinosaur egg which, when cracked open, may reveal one of three colourful dinosaur figures. The dinosaur buggy has a fun, sideways, rocking action and can carry one of the other dinosaur figures in the back. We have had such fun playing with them and even Little Miss seems ridiculously fond of the purple dino.
I am so delighted to have come across this range and would highly recommend them for pre-schoolers. They ooze quality, fun and, again, NO BATTERIES REQUIRED. I will certainly be looking to expand our own range and investing in some for my niece and nephews.
