As you may, or may not know, I have a 16 month old niece that is growing up too fast for her own good. When Little Tykes gave me the opportunity to review a couple of items from their wonderful new Lil Ocean Explorers line, I jumped at the chance.
Little Tikes has been one of the leading children’s toys manufacturer for as long as I can remember. I grew up playing with toys from Little Tikes, as did my sister.
I was honored to get the opportunity to have Lucy review two of their items from their new Lil Ocean Explorers Line, The Stand N Dance Starfish and the Dunk ‘N Juggle Seal.
First one I will review is the Stand ‘N Dance Starfish.
Ages: Age: 9 – 36 months
Little Tikes Lil’ Ocean Explorers Stand ‘N Dance Starfish tower inspires babies to create music then dance along. The light-up keyboard can be played by little hands when sitting or by little feet when standing and dancing. Sitting, standing, or dancing babies will play for hours!
I have personally watch Lucy rob this adorable Starfish of the balls, and run off with them, only to return because she has stepped on one of the big buttons all around the base that make it sing. It was so funny to see her step on them, make them sing and dance around to the sound. This Stand N Dance Starfish is really adorable and I’m awaiting the day that Lucy figures out how to put the ball in the top and make the balls sing, as this thing is already keeping her amused for hours!
Now for the Dunk ‘N Juggle Seal
Lucy’s little toes.. Couldn’t resist leaving them in the picture :-).
Ages: 6-36 Months
Babies will have a ball with the Lil’ Ocean Explorers Dunk ‘n Juggle Seal. When baby tosses the ball in the hoop, the seal starts clapping its fins, plays music and releases the ball to the ramp on the floor for baby to chase.
This is not only one of the cutest things I have ever seen, it is also just as cute, if not cuter, to watch Lucy place the bal in the hoop, and watch the seal clap with excitement as the ball comes gently flying out and landing in the feet for Lucy to chase! Lucy loves to pick up the seals balls and wander around with them, even bringing them to me so we can play catch!
I love that Lucy is getting the opportunity to grow up with the same companies my sister and I have grown up with, and I hope that she continues to love Little Tikes, just like we do!
