On the pack it states that it is suitable for 18+months, well Bear is only 13 months so I thought I would have a peak inside without him.
Firstly there is nothing on the pack to say it's a Wow Toy. Usually brands splash their name all over.
On the front of the packet it stated "one figure and activity card inside" "2 individual characters to collect!"
So imagine my delight when I opened it and there were 2 figures! They are so cute too.
The figurines are really lovely. Wow Toys have thought of safety especially with young children choking so have their figures with their arms out and thumbs up! How cute is that? Father Christmas even has parcels in his sack.
|The figurines are about 6 cm high and adorable.|
They are made from tough plastic and I would think they would withstand lots of playing and chewing. Their toys are described as having no PVC, toxic paint or small parts and no batteries required.
The pack has an activity card. In mine was a small card, a little creased, with colouring in on one side and dot-to-dot on the other.
I loved this toy and will save it for Bear when he's just a little older. I think these would be excellent to help with the development of a child's imagination.
My only disappointment was I couldn't find the Playtime Friends toys on-line. Wow Toys do sell via independent toy shops and their website has a search facility to find your local shop, so maybe they would stock them.
The bigger toys and play sets are stocked by some of the major on-line stores and a list of these is also on their website.
Searching for this toy I found that they also sold advent calendars, suitable from 1+ year and each calender has 24 themed toys. What a great idea instead of chocolate! They cost just under £25 so that's about £1 per toy. If the quality is similar to the sample I was given then I think that is excellent value.
I know a very lucky Bear who may be getting one this year. The decision now is...
Should I buy the Town, Farmyard or the Wonderland advent calendar?
