We have reviewed some of the Play2Learn range before but are now back with another instalment from our TOMY Toys Official Blogger posts and this time we are doing the animal toys in the Play2Learn range. We were sent 3 toys from the range, Mr Owl Pop Out Puzzles, Peek a Boo Lion Cub and Cheesy Riders and these toys are suitable for children, I would say, around 1-3 years.

Mr Owl Pop Out Puzzles
This toy might look simple but is in fact many toys in one. There are 5 different themed pictures to make and all have a cute little animal on them. The 6th side of the cube has removable pieces for shape sorting. After you have got the animal the correct way you can then press down on Professor Owl’s head and see him blink and then all of the cubes will fall out. 
It is fun an educational as it is all about shapes sorting and learning where each piece goes.

Peek a Boo Lion Cub
Press down on the lions head and his eyes will close and then music starts to play. Listen along to the soothing tone and then... POP!!! His eyes open and he giggles as the music ends.
I like the fact that even though this toys ins't exactly something you can play with an control loads but it is similar to a jack-in-the-box and will keep children in suspense waiting for the cub to open his eyes and no doubt will have them in fits of giggles when he does so. 

Cheesy Riders
Charlie loves pull along toys and this one is no exception. It has 3 fun mice which bump up and down whilst making a clinking sound as the toy is pulled along.
The mice can also be taken out of their seats and given a shake and they will rattle.
Although this is a fun toy to run around the room with, it is also educational as children can colour match the mice with the correct wheels on their cart and learn which goes where. 

Check out our short video to see each one in use:


These three toys are a big hit in our house, especially with Charlie, and I really do think that over time they will help him with learning his sorting and matching skills so not only does he get a bright, robust, colourful toy to play with but he is learning at the same time.

I can imagine any children beaming with excitement if they received these on Christmas morning.

  8. I love TOMY toys, nice to get an update / review. These toys are so colourful and sturdy. The owl looks fun and educational, the pull - along - toy fun and interactive :- as young children love being chased / followed etc as a game. The fact the toy makes a noise whilst being pulled along is positive feedback for the child that the toy is still following. The lion cub is so cute, children love music. Thanks for the review, ideas for Christmas.
