Christmas will be here before we know it, and I am so excited to kick off our Holiday Gift Guide today! We're starting off HUGE! We LOVE vtech in our home, so we were thrilled to have the chance to try out 4 of their new toys! Yes you read that right, 4 amazing toys for toddlers arrived on our doorstep a few weeks ago. That's not the best part though, vtech has been incredibly generous enough to offer one of you the chance to win all 4 for yourself!
The toys we received are geared towards kids 3 and under, and we have two little one's that fall in that category. Sweet Pea is 2 & Lil Stinker is 3, so I knew we'd have some happy kiddos! When the box of goodies arrived on our doorstep, their excitement was pretty hard to contain.
Hubs & I decided that we didn't want to overwhelm the kiddos by opening all of the toys at once, so we let them choose two that first night. Sweet Pea immediately gravitated to the Chomp and Count Dino (19.99), so this was the first toy we pulled out.
The Chomp and Count Dino is geared towards kids ages 12-36 months. This is perfect for Sweet Pea, we've been working on colors , shapes and numbers with her & this fun toy helps promote learning in both of those areas. The Dino comes with 8 brightly colored discs that are marked with different healthy treats, for your little one to feed to their Dino. We love that the treats are healthy, this helps instill great habits while their having fun.
We've had this toy for weeks now & it has become Sweet Pea's favorite. It became 10 times cooler when her brother figured out that it also has a pull string. She loves taking her new pet for walks.
Since Sweet Pea chose the first item we opened, we decided it was only fair to let the boys pick the next toy. They quickly chose the Smart Shots Sport Center (39.99) , this toy is geared for 12-36 months...so you can imagine how surprised I was when my 6 year old was entertained greatly by this toy.
The Smart Shots Sport Center required minimal assembly, Hubs had it together & ready to go in just a few minutes. Once it was together both boys (6 and 3) were ready to play. This toy has so many cool features. It comes with a soccer ball and a basketball, so your child can shoot a basket or score a goal while they play. My boys have decided that one day they have "basketball practice" and the next day they have "soccer practice".
While kids work on their shooting or kicking skills they'll be encouraged by the animated LED screen. The scoreboard will count their points and play encouraging sounds and phrases. These are the features that my older kids enjoy, but the little one loves all of the smaller details. Kids can work on their fine motor skills by playing with the gears, and they can learn shapes & numbers by pressing the shape buttons. This is greatly entertaining for all 3 of my kids and that is always a plus!
We also received the VTech Sit to Stand Smart Cruiser Toy(39.99), my kiddos love ride on toys. So I knew this would be a huge hit with the younger two. This ride on toy offers fun for little one's ages 6-36 months. Even before your babe is ready to ride, they can enjoy the Cruiser by playing with the removable steering wheel on the floor. The steering wheel is interactive with an abundance of fun ways to play. They can press the horn, move the gear shifter, turn the key & so much more. All of the play is accompanied by flashing lights and fun noises.
When your kiddo is old enough , you simply attach the steering wheel to the car so they can enjoy all of the same developmental play while riding along. The under seat storage is an added bonus, because we know all toddler's love to hide their special things.
Lastly, we were sent the VTech Grow Along Music Center (29.99), this may be my favorite item out of all of the toys. I love anything that inspires imaginative play & that is exactly what this toy does for my kids. With all of my children being 2 or older, the favorite feature of this is definitely the microphone. They love that they can change their voice with the simple turn of a dial, the "robot" voice is by far the favorite. I love just sitting back watching and listening to them sing and giggle with this toy.
The Music Center is also great for younger toddlers, the height adjustment is perfect for their constant growing & the entire play area removes to be a floor toy. The keyboard features fun animals, bright colors and 75+ songs!
My kids have loved each of these toys and with their great price tags, they would make the perfect gift for any toddler on your list! They can all be purchased on Amazon & one of you will win all 4 toys to help make your Christmas shopping easier. Please fill out the entry form below for your chance to win..
