Lily is a huge Mr Tumble fan and has been since she was a baby. She would always be transfixed onto the screen and I think it was the first TV show that she had a really good giggle to when Mr Tumble was pretending to sneeze.
I was really excited for Lily when I found out that Golden Bear Toys were releasing something very special with a line of new Mr Tumble Toys.
We were really lucky to be approached to review 2 new toys from the collection.
We were sent the Mr Tumble's Fun Sounds Musical Car and the Mr Tumble's Fun Felts Set.
I first introduced Lily to the car. As soon as I got it out she was so eager for me to get it out of the box and luckily it wasn't that hard to get out. As soon as it was all out for her she began playing with it straight away.
The Mr Tumble car has so many different fun features and even I found exploring the car good fun.
As the car is pushed it also wobbles from side to side. It runs really smoothly on carpet or laminate flooring.
Another feature which is all about sound, is the big button on the top that you can press. As you do it then sings the Mr Tumble theme tune and you can also hear Mr Tumble catchphrases. This tune is generally stuck in my head from the moment I hear it but again, as a parent you do get used to that. haha
On the side of the car are 2 more buttons, one has Grandad Tumble on it and you can hear him say some of the catchphrases from the show and the other side you have Aunt Polly who also says her catchphrases. There is a range of things that they say so you can press the buttons plenty of times.
On the front is another button!!! This one when you press it it flashes red. All the buttons are really obvious and Lily found them all easily and pressed them all.
Lily loved the Mr Tumble character that it came with. He is really chunky and just the right size for little hands to grip. She was also so excited to see that you could lift the front of the car open and place him into the car. This is something she loved doing the most.
Overall the car I love and Lily loves. I think its a really good toy to encourage touch and sound recognition as well as providing hours of fun. The toy retails at £29.99 and if you child is a fan of Mr Tumble and a fan of cars then this is the perfect toy for them.
The second toy I was really excited about myself. It was the felt set and I used to play with felt sets loads as a child. Its something I would of never have thought about buying Lily but now she has one I've learnt it would have been a real shame for the idea to never enter my head. She LOVES it.
The set comes with a flocked board and over 60 felt pieces to stick onto it. I was super impressed with how many it came with and it gave such variety to the pictures we could make. The pieces are all about dressing up Mr Tumble and friends and there are lots of different costumes and funky things from the show to stick on.
After showing her this, she spent ages playing with this toy. I haven't seen her sit so quietly with a toy for ages and its great that its something she can play with without my constant help.
The felt board is a great price of £7.99 and If your child is a sticker fan then this is a must buy seen as it has the same qualities as stickers apart from you can use it over and over again.
You can see all of the Range of Something Special toys over at the Golden Bear Website
Which of these toys do you think your child would love?
