The HotWheels suite at BlogHer12 was fun because there was lots to play with. I especially think that this RC Terrain Twister is really neat!
We received a Police Force Pursuit from the Mega Blok Squad sets for review, and decided to use it instead of a game for family time. Our kids were excited to start because it is vehicles and men – their favorite parts of any play set. They had a bit of trouble deciding who would build each vehicle. It was settled when our 7 year old daughter decided she could just pretend that the ambulance is an RV camper for a girl doll.
I feel like my children will appreciate their toys more if they have worked for them. My daughter saw this doll as she was Christmas shopping for her siblings and decided to save her money for it. She fed the dog and cleaned up after him and any other jobs she could get paid for. There has definitely been a lessening of volunteering since she has gotten her doll. Here’s a video about it:
And if you didn’t figure it out… We bought the doll from the Toys Section [aff link] of Target; and you can shop Target products online.
These were part of my children’s Easter presents. Yes, it’s taken me a while to do a review. They had disappeared into the other toys – which is a good sign – and I had to have the kids bring them together for a picture.
My 8 year old son colored the black dog, 6 year old daughter the light blue duck, and 4 year old daughter the multi-colored cat. She didn’t color as fast as they did and so she didn’t finish; now the markers are lost [or I threw them out when they weren't looking because they were on the floor] and her “cat” will just have to have some white spots.
I think that the ZhuZhu Babies are much cuter than the mothers. I guess that’s true with most creatures isn’t it? We had an impromptu party with 5 little girls ranging in age from 3 – 6.
The packaging is definitely child proof. We needed scissors to get the box open and the babies out.
