      This is a super fun toy, my daughter LOVES it! It seemed flimsy at first glance, but has surprisingly stood up to quite a lot of toddler abuse. I have to admit, it's entertaining from my perspective watching her stomp to launch the rocket again and again too. Great for active kids!

      We just recently used our Ladybug Land. The directions were easy to follow and it was very easy to use, and my girls LOVED learning about the ladybug life cycle and eventually releasing their fully grown ladybugs outside.

      I have to be entirely honest in my review - when my daughters received this as a gift recently, I had high hopes, having heard all the hype. And they were very interesting to begin with - they have a unique movement across our tile floor and are fun to touch. But they lost my daughters' attention (ages 6 and 3) quickly thereafter. It is my understanding their are other accessories and a variety of other Hexbugs... perhaps with the rest of the collection they are more entertaining. But as a stand-alone toy, they just weren't all that fabulous.

      My daughters received this toy from a friend and absolutely love it. At first, it didn't look all that interesting. But once we all realized the magnetic feature (the scoop is magnetic, as are the scoops of ice cream), it was much more fun. It is cute, colorful, and the wooden design makes it feel like more of a quality toy. The cone is very realistic looking, with pattern and texture. A great addition to our collection of play food.

      We recently purchased this book while at an art museum. It ended up becoming a wonderful travel toy in the process! My daughter LOVED playing with this book on our plane rides (she is six). She made beautiful note cards (provided in the book) following the directions given. They turned out to be nice keepsakes, for a grandmother who treasures having something as precious as her granddaughters fingerprints. :) The ink is vibrant colors and washes away easily. Wonderful product.

      We absolutely love Klutz products! This book was no exception. It is spiral bound. I've enjoyed watching my daughters try to make a paper boomerang and giggled with them at the duct tape underpants. This book is FULL of childish fun. Adults love to flip through it, as well (as we witnessed at a recent family gathering). Really fantastic find.

      My daughters received Pop Beads last Christmas from their aunt. I have to admit, I've enjoyed it, too. The beads are colorful and uniquely shaped. They can be re-used again and again. They are very easy to manipulate (we had a two year old put them to the test too - while small parts are not recommended for such young children, she was able to manipulate them and connect the beads with ease, with adult supervision). It is a wonderful toy (though a bit messy when spilled, haha).

We purchased a separate set of pirate figures to be played with on the ship. My daughter is going to be absolutely thrilled with this toy.

      I have yet to plant the seeds with my daughters (saving it for a birthday), but had a look at it myself. The plant selection is fun (I myself love sensitive plants and hadn't seen one anywhere since my own childhood!). This product is educational, fun, and appears to be very easy to use. I'm really looking forward to watching this interesting plants grow with my daughters!

      We bought these for my father-in-law last Christmas (yes, he's a grown-up, hahaha). We all had a fantastic giggle as the little men were ejected from their seats (the noise they make is hysterical). It is very durable and easy to use, and great fun. So much so, I bought another set to put away for my daughters to receive this Christmas at our home. Great toy!

      Our family has been a Corolle fan for some time, and this product was a wonderful birthday present for my youngest. It dries quickly and is exactly what you would expect of Corolle - wonderful attention to detail (from the vanilla scent to the open/close eyes, to the adorable clothes). Highly recommend.

      I bought this for my three year old, and she absolutely loved it. I will admit, I was surprised to discover the material it is made of is a bit papery in texture (I suppose I expected something more canvas-like). And as she colored, quite a bit of the marker transferred to her hands. BUT, everything was quite washable and she adores it AND it kept her busy for hours. For the price, it is a great toy.

      This review is pretty simple - Uno is a classic family game everyone should own. It has been a tradition for multiple generations now to play a game (or dozen) of Uno following holiday family meals. My daughter, age six, is now beginning to understand and play, as well. Wonderful, simple game.

      We purchased this toy for my older daughter several years ago, in orange. She was 18 months old when we purchased it and played nicely with it for roughly two years. As far as she was concerned, this toy was a turtle shell, doll cradle, TV-viewing seat, wagon (she would use a rope or ribbon, with supervision, to drag it along, filled with toys), and countless other things. My only complaint is it did require careful supervision when she was younger. She felt the need to climb and play with it sometimes in ways that could potentially result in a bump or tumble. BUT, really, most everything requires adult supervision at such a young age. Wonderful toy for creative/imaginative play!

      We have owned this toy for three years now. While we're a *bit* frustrated we still have not found the elusive penny, it has proven to be fun for the entire family. It has sat on our coffee table and almost anyone who visits has felt compelled to pick it up and is then instantly hooked. And, as the previous reviewer pointed out, it is VERY durable. It has taken much abuse from both of my daughters over the past few years (ages six and three, presently). Excellent product, and I would recommend it for ANY age.

      I purchased this for my daughters, ages six and three. My husband dismantled it and challenged them to reassemble and they LOVED the challenge. With very little help, they accomplished this within 15 minutes and were already eager to repeat the experience. My youngest was so in love with the finished vehicle, she began pushing it to her bedroom in the hopes of sleeping with it tonight, HAHA! Great product, I am very happy with this purchase.

      We purchased this doll house for our daughters Christmas 2008. At the time, they were four and one. They LOVED it. We purchased a little family of bunny dolls to accompany the doll house and they loved making the little animals play in the house, especially walking up and down the stairs (nice feature). Now, 2.5 years later, I am happy to report the doll house is still in excellent condition (with the exception of a water stain - my youngest decided to put actual water in the dollhouse bathtub - I would recommend not allowing that to happen). It sits between my daughters' twin beds and also acts as a lovely piece of furniture! They use the side porches on the dollhouse to store their treasures and sippy cups at night, haha. It also still sees loads of doll play. AND the furniture has stayed in excellent condition, as well. Would highly recommend this doll house. No complaints here!

      We purchased our Elf on a Shelf after Christmas last year, so to be honest, we haven't yet put it to use. But, upon arrival, I did check it out, and find it to be adorable with a wonderful vintage feel. I love that this product has the potential to become a long-lasting tradition and family heirloom. And I know my daughters will love the notion of playing finding the Elf's hiding place throughout the holiday season. Wonderful idea.

      My 3.5 year old received this car two years ago. Even at 18 months of age, she was able to operate it (though not well, but well enough). It only recently began to experiencing problems with the steering. However, keep in mind this was after TWO solids years of toddler abuse! And she played with it fairly frequently. Wonderful toy for a little girl or boy.

      My daughters (2 and 5 at the time) received this from the grandparents the same time they received Pengoloo. My father-in-law purchased these games from a school supply store, which I only mention to point out that educators appreciate these games, as well! It is very colorful and fantastic quality. Cute and well-made. I will say my younger daughter does not yet have the fine motor skills to play this game well - she much prefers to knock it down. But my now six year old loves it and can play it again and again.

      My daughters received this toy from their grandparents last year. My father-in-law purchased this, as well as other games from the series, from a teacher supply store (which I believe should speak volumes about the educational value of such games). My three year old honestly enjoys it more than my six year old. She LOVES the adorable penguins and hiding the eggs. It is a super cute toy, very well made, and will undoubtedly be with our family for years to come. Great quality.

      From a parent's perspective, I have to be honest - I found these cars pricey and felt there was limited combination for play. However, my daughters (5 and 2 when these were received as a birthday gift) so seem to enjoy them, especially popping the tires on and off. They enjoy mixing the colors and creating different vehicles (sport car, full size car, truck, etc). I do appreciate that it is wood and would make a nice toy to hang on to for the next generation, as well.

      I purchased Twilight Turtle for my daughter the same time we purchased Sleep Sheep. Twilight Turtle has made a lovely nightlight, though the room has to be pitch dark to be most effective (if not, the stars are not well defined). My daughter can easily turn the turtle on/off by herself, and loves selecting which color is displayed. Like Sleep Sheep, she views Twilight Turtle as an important part of her bedtime routine. Well made and a great product to own if you have a little one that has trouble drifting off at bedtime.

      We have owned Sleep Sheep for a year now - I purchased when my daughter was 2.5. We use Sleep Sheep on the rain setting each and every single night. The white noises lulls her to sleep and soothes her. I sincerely wish I had one for myself, as I have fallen asleep while putting her to bed on more than one occasion as a result of Sleep Sheep's hypnotic effect! And I know my daughter now views it as an important part of her bedtime routine - while packing for a weekend trip recently, she was certain to toss Sleep Sheep into her backpack! Highly recommend, for ALL ages!

      We purchased this stroller to go with my daughter's Corolle dolls. She also uses it to transport her sippy cups and other treasures from room to room. Very well-made, a toy that is very well-loved - but be certain the child is old enough to understand it is not intended to hold a child's weight. I'd recommend adult supervision until they can grasp it is intended for dolls/toys only. Overall, a very wonderful toy and every little girl/boy who loves dolls should have one.

      Okay, I will be honest - this toy DOES get on mom and dad's nerves a bit, haha. BUT the children love it, and really, that is the more important consideration when making a toy purchase. The meowing is very intriguing to my daughter and she giggles and plays away. The microphone features is fun, as well. It has proven to be durable and very portable, with my three year old dragging it from room to room. I would recommend this as a purchase for a 3-6 year old niece or nephew... perhaps best put to use in someone else's household, haha. :) Seriously, though, my children DO love it and it is cute.

      My daughter received this two years ago for her fourth birthday. Now, both girls, ages six and three, still occasionally play with it. The magnets are very strong and like all Melissa and Doug products, it is very well-made and durable. I would recommend this as a child's birthday present, or even as a travel toy. Very small, portable, and engaging.

      I purchased this calendar for my daughters two years ago, then ages 4 and 1. Obviously, they were too young to grasp the concept. Now they are beginning to understand, though mostly they love to play with the magnets and admire the pictures. I will say they are certain to take notice when a birthday or holiday is marked. It is very well made, though I do wish it came with some extra numbers or more blanks to write-in numbers, as some of ours have gone missing from time to time. Overall, though, I would recommend this product.

      My daughters received this set from their aunt three years ago. They still, to this day, play with the blocks almost daily! They use it to build towers, tables for tea parties, beds for their dolls... the list goes on and on and on. They LOVE them. Fabulous, wonderful, STURDY toy (don't let the cardboard sway you from purchasing it - VERY sturdy!). Highly, highly recommend. Anything that can hold a child's attention for years is a toy worth having.

      I was leery of purchasing this for my daughter several months ago (age 3), fearing my house would be inked within minutes, but surprisingly, this is VERY washable. My kitchen tablecloth was coated in stamps, as was my daughter, and both cleaned up really easily. :) It is a lovely set, the right size for little hands, and quality images. We love it, as we love all Melissa and Doug products.

      We JUST received a Trunki this week, as a gift for an upcoming trip out of state. I have a three year old (40 pounds) and a six year old (42 pounds) who have both test driven it. No problems whatsoever! I will say it is difficult to turn, but not impossible. Both girls thought it was fantastic. There is ample room inside to hold toys, a change of clothes, some snacks - a perfect carry-on for children. It easily opens/closes and seems very sturdy. Very pleased with it and looking forward to putting it to use next month!

      We have owned Katie Camper since Christmas '10. It is very, very sturdy, and we love that it doesn't require batteries. I will say my three year old has difficulty playing solo with this toy, but she loves it just the same provided someone can engage in imaginative play with her. Very cute, well-made toy.

      This is one of two Corolle dolls my daughter owns and she absolutely adores Calin. She can easily dress/undress this doll (my daughter is 3), and spends hours playing with Calin in such a loving, nurturing manner. Calin is also vanilla scented, as all Corolle dolls and my daughter claims Calin "smells like cupcakes". Lovely product.

      My three year old owns this doll. She has named her "Pinky" and has spent hours playing with her. She loves to brush and "style" her hair (which is surprisingly durable when compared with other dolls) and takes the smock dress on and off. Wonderful doll - very cute and colorful, too.
