Review: Fisher-Price Rainbow Dazzle Minnie

This light up musical Minnie Mouse toy has been an instant hit with Lydia, who adores Minnie Mouse. It is really rather neat, with different parts of Minnie’s dress & her bow changing colour when touched. The idea is you design Minnie’s outfit by choosing the colours of her bow, top & skirt. … Continue Reading “Review: Fisher-Price Rainbow Dazzle Minnie”

Review: Fisher-Price My Friend Bing

I have to admit when we were offered one of these cute Bing toys to review, I jumped at the chance – Lydia is a huge Bing Bunny fan and this is her first Bing toy of her very own. This Bing Bunny walks and talks, much to both Georgie and Lydia’s delight. His expressive ears wiggle about too, which is a really nice touch.… Continue Reading “Review: Fisher-Price My Friend Bing”

Review: Dora and Friends Doggie Day! Dolls

We were sent two Dora and Friends Doggie Day! dolls to review, and they have been an absolute hit with our two girls. We were sent Dora and Kate and the girls each claimed one each to call their own.

Each of the dolls come with a charm that can be used with the charm bracelets you can buy from the same range of toys (read my review of these here). Both charms are puppies from the Doggie Day episode of Dora and Friends, in different bright colours.… Continue Reading “Review: Dora and Friends Doggie Day! Dolls”

Review: Dora and Friends Charm Bracelet Toys

We were sent two Dora and Friends charm bracelet toys to try out to celebrate the Nick Jr Sing Along Summer event; the Beach Adventure Dora set, and the Magic Charm Bracelet set.

The Beach Adventure Dora set has a small toy Dora with moveable arms and a hinged waist, and comes with a yellow charm bracelet and three beach themed charms; a beach bag, conch shell, and crab.

Review: Dora and Friends Talk & Play Smartphone

We were sent a batch of Dora and Friends products to review, to celebrate Nick Jr’s Sing Along Summer event, and this phone was one of the items. In the TV show, Dora has a trusty smartphone to help her on her way. This toy lets your child have a phone “just like Dora’s” complete with a lenticular changing screen effect, and a variety of sound effects and phrases.… Continue Reading “Review: Dora and Friends Talk & Play Smartphone”

Review: Fisher-Price Thomas & Friends Take-n-Play Roaring Dino Run (BCX23)

Review: Fisher-Price Minnie’s Polka Dot House

We received this house to review just before Christmas and it has been a huge hit with both our girls, and Georgie’s best friend has enjoyed playing with it too.

First impressions were good; the parts of the house were easy to snap together, with easy to follow instructions and a handful of stickers to put on the house and furniture. There are furnishings for a living area, kitchen/diner, bathroom and bedroom, plus a few bits for Minnie’s cat too. The oven and fridge both have opening doors.… Continue Reading “Review: Fisher-Price Minnie’s Polka Dot House”

Learning through Laughter

When we visited The Baby Show recently, Fisher-Price invited us to join them for lunch and to watch a presentation about the Laugh & Learn range, including some new research about learning through play and laughter. The presentation was very interesting and certainly proved that baby laughter is infectious, with an adorable video montage of giggling babies setting the whole room off laughing!… Continue Reading “Learning through Laughter”
