In August Harley shared some WOW toys with everybody as part of the, ‘Santa’s little helpers’ feature that’s now in full swing and is in it’s third month. Little H had so much fun playing with these fabulous toys, that I wanted to share some more of their products with you all.
For those who didn’t see our last WOW toy review back in August,here’s a little more about them.
WOW toys are designed for children aged between 18 months to 5 years old.
The guys at WOW know a lot about toys, all are designed and made from scratch each going through a series of strict safety checks before finally being delivered to the shops.
WOW toys are packed with developmental benefits! These toys are great for pre-schoolers as-well as children on the autism spectrum, not only do they help feed a child’s imagination but help develop basic motor skills to advanced social interactive role play.
WOW toys don’t require any batteries and this is a feature I’m sure many parents will love!
WOW toys grow with your child, offering great value for money, making them the perfect gift for your little ones.
Lets start with Mario’s Pizzeria.
What you get: This is an 8 piece set, consisting of
1x Magic oven
1x push-along trike
3x removable pizzas
Magic oven with push to bake button
Spin Mario on the chimney to choose your topping
Harley had a lot of fun playing with the pizzeria. His daddy is Italian so it made the perfect toy. Like all WOW toys, all pieces are well made, there are no little pieces all pieces are chunky and ideal for the little hands of a pre-schooler. I don’t know if Little H is advanced but he will already use two toy figures to act out a scene, pretending the figures are communicating with one another, and this is what he did with Mario and the delivery boy contained in this set. His older sister plays this way all the time and I think it’s because he regularly observes her in action. What ever the reason it’s very cute and I sit watching him enjoy himself with a smile. He had fun popping the pizzas in the oven and discovering the magic features (the oven button and spinning roof) As expected H was overly happy with the push along trike and took a number of his other WOW figures for a ride:)When I asked H if he liked his pizzeria, he clapped, and said yes before kissing all the pieces (something he seems to do a lot lately) on this response it gets ***** stars
As a parent I think it’s a fabulous set, that hosts a great set of features for your child to discover and learn, keeping their little minds busy. The full five stars is given to this toy as it really does give off the WOW factor.
Next up is… Roll it Riley.
What you get: This is a 3 piece set, consisting of
1x Steam roller called Riley
1x driver called Kev
1x road sign
Realistic engine sounds and rattling roller
Roll and Spin sorter/ face changer
Harley loved this one as he associated it with Bob the builder. Though the supplied figure went by the name of Kev, H insisted on calling him Bob and I gave up on telling him, “Not Bob, that’s Kev” So Bob it was. The face changer was enjoyed by H and as well as pushing it around the living room he sat spinning the roller and copying the expression, which was so cute but funny at the same time. He played with Riley alongside his pizzeria and at one stage he swapped roles between Kev (aka Bob) and Mario:) Lots of fun was had and Riley kept him very busy and fully entertained. **** stars is again given to, ‘Roll it Riley’!
As a parent I loved the spin and sort face changing feature (when Riley moved his face expression changed) This made me think about the potential benefits of such a toy for a child on the autism spectrum who has difficulty understanding facial expressions as Riley could prove a great resource, offering the children a fun way to learn and understand these expressions better. I really laughed on discovering the name of Riley’s driver, “Kev” it’s sad but true, that yes, many blocks in construction are called John or indeed Kev (well, at least it seems this way, as I know of a few, *giggle*) I’m finding it really easy to again give the product the full five stars.
I highly recommend WOW toys for your toddler/pre-schooler. This is a very honest opinion, otherwise why would this mum have WOW toys hidden in the button of her cupboard ready for Little Harley’s 2nd Birthday which is on the 11th December. We are also planning to add to the collection at Christmas (yes, just two short weeks after his birthday, meaning a very expensive December for this mum).
