This would probably be more used by my 2 year old when she is a little older. She will use it "properly" but that doesn't hold her attention long. She would rather kick the ball or line up the animals, but not necessarily both at once. But it is very cute and I am sure will get more use later on.
These are used daily and all over our house - in the tub, in the sink, in the bean tub, the sandbox, or with the play kitchen - sometimes even to put a snack in. They are super versatile and well loved.
This is one of my daughter's favorite toys for therapy and to play with at a friend's home. I never would have thought that the stacking cups would be very fun, but she loves to stack them or line them up just so, pretend to drink out of them, etc. I'd say the cups get more play than the shape sorter, but she enjoys that as well.
My kid never much cared for this toy, but it very possibly due to her sensory issues. She just wasn't interested in it for anything other than as something to stand on to get to other things. It seems like a fine toy otherwise and was a gift, so I put it up for our next child. Perhaps another child would be more interested in the lights.
I am hoping this is used more as my kid gets older, because it is really well made. The drum sounds lovely, and the other instruments are a perfect size for small hands, but not so small that adults can't use them to join in and play too. We have to save it from being used as a step stool a lot right now but several times it has had almost 40 lbs of toddler on it with no ill effects. I like that all the small instruments can be stored in the upside down drum to keep them together too.
This is a "grandparent's house toy" and boy am I glad! It is the first toy my 2 year old heads for when she gets there. I find the songs pretty inane, and the meowing gets old pretty fast. But we don't have many electronic toys at our house and she LOVES this one. The microphone is a great touch, and the keyboard seems to hold up well to lots of toddler banging. A great toy, but maybe for someone's house where you visit!
Even my big kid fits in this. She likes to be pushed around in it. But she will also pile other stuffed animals and toys inside to push them. It gets tipped over intentionally and stays sturdy, but is hard to tip if you aren't trying to.
My child is big for her age, and at 2 this is still a fantastic size for her. She can stand and cook on it, but she'll often sit on a foam cube to play as well. It comes with a lot of play food and utensils, which have all held up to vigorous banging and tossing around. The sink is her favorite part.
I love Schleich. Their toys always look so realistic, well-made, and are just the right size for small hands. This particular one is our favorite because of how anatomically correct it is - husband got a hoot out of it. So we named it Bruce and hide it around the house in funny places.
I wanted to love these, but there are just so many parts. Trying to keep track of four pieces per animal is a pain. I wish they were just two pieces - a front and a back. I was tired of trying to keep them together and hunt down missing parts, so I ended up putting them away.
We haven't used these in a doll house or anything, just independently. So while I can't speak to how they are for that, they are the perfect size to keep in my purse and great as a distraction while shopping or at a restaurant. The bendable legs are fun and my 2 year old enjoys trying to get them to stand up in crazy positions. I do wish the baby had a way to stay strapped to the mom with a carrier or something, because we are constantly losing it!
My 2 year old is sticker obsessed, and when she got this along with the accompanying coloring books she was ecstatic. There's a great variety in here, and they are a nice quality. Great value for so many stickers too.
Still too little to color in the lines, but my 2 year old loves the pretty pictures. The wide and long size is really nice for lots of wild scribbling. A college age relative even enjoyed coloring in it for a long time over Christmas, and I like to color along with my daughter in it too.
My daughter enjoys the magnetic pacifier and putting it on her mouth and taking it off. That is definitely her favorite part. Other than that, I wouldn't say it gets more play than any other doll though.
I look forward to seeing my kid able to match these up better, but for now the different textures and such are really wonderful for her sensory issues, and prompt her to touch things she wouldn't normally.
My daughter is very into animals, so I love all of the different ones on these. We had two sets of blocks, and I ended up separating them and putting the other ones away because she liked these ones so much more. Building towers and knocking them down lasts longer when you can take breaks to make animal sounds.
I love this toy, even though somehow it tends to be used most when we are needing a little quiet time! But the rolling and clacking sound, though quite loud, is still pleasant. It has been used regularly for over a year and still looks brand new also.
We have both a green and a red Bilibo. They are used mostly for jumping off of or balancing on when turned upside down, but sometimes as helmets. They are fun out in the snow too. I do wish they were played with more but I think as my daughter's creativity grows they will get more use.
My daughter uses this as a part of her speech therapy. She enjoys popping the people out or putting them in upside down and turning them back right side up. It doesn't hold her attention for a very long time though.
This chair gets a lot of abuse. A lot. It gets tipped over and almost every side but the correct one is sat on. The ottoman is use for jumping off of and climbing. And it still looks nice. Great construction, and the pale pink color is very pretty. I do wish it had a washable cover, but so far small stains have scrubbed out pretty easily.
This has never gotten a lot of play despite my daughter's love for counting things. But it is constructed well and the colors are so pretty. I have never been able to pack it away because even if it isn't played with, it looks so lovely.
We got this for my daughter at 12 months, but she really did not begin to play with it until 24 months. It makes a lovely clacking noise as she pulls it behind her - not at all annoying like so many battery powered toys! It has a nice, sturdy weight and feel to it also.
My daughter has never played with this much, even though I wish she would have. She is just very particular about toys. It has sturdy construction, and has taken a lot of tossing around. Any time an adult is near it they are drawn to playing with it. The suction cups make it a great toy to take out to a restaurant if your child would enjoy a bead maze.
I love the light that comes off of this, and so does my daughter. I do wish that the battery life was a little longer, however. We keep it up on a shelf so it doesn't get much handling - she keeps a glow worm doll with her for that.
