Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Pull Along Chatter Phone 03/06/2016

Fisher Price Chatter Telephone

Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Pull Along Chatter Phone My youngest Son was bought the Fisher Price Chatter Telephone for Christmas by my Boss, and although a bit young when he first received it he now loves playing with it. The Chatter Telephone is a little classic style telephone, the main body of it is white with bright red contrasting wheels and reciever on the top, this is a dial phone and has a bright yellow working dial in the middle of it. The Chatter Telephone has a friendly smiling face on the front which makes it appealing to young children and it also has a red cord on the front as this is also a pull along toy, the cord is of a decent length which allows a child to easily pull it along behind them. The whole thing is made from a tough durable plastic which is ideal when played with by young children, my Son can be a little heavy handed with his being just under a year old, however it is still in perfect condition and looks as good as new with no signs of damage. The Chatter Telephone is aimed at children aged 12 months and above, my Son is just under this but still loves playing with it. This toy is ideal for helping various areas of development, it is good for introducing early role play, my Son loves it if you pretend there is someone on the phone for him, obviously being very young he doesn't fully understand but giggles and smiles when you put the phone to his ear. The dial has the numbers 0 to 9 on it so therefore makes a start into introducing your child to number recognition, again my Son is a little young ...

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Special Edition Thomas 31/05/2016

Thomas & Friends Take n Play Special Edition Thomas.

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Special Edition Thomas My Son now has a collection of Take n Play vehicles which has reached 102 (serious Thomas obsession in our house) we do have several Thomas engines, however this one is a bit of a different design and was actually bought to go on the top of my Son 4th birthday cake. Special Edition Thomas is as with the other vehicles in he range a littl die cast metal engine, he has bright blue paintwork, red buffers, a black band around his face and funnel and 6 little blue wheels to match his paintwork. What makes him different is the design on his paintwork, he has a racing design with the top of his boiler and cab being blac, he has a large #1 in yellow on the side of his boiler and on the roof of his cab, there are other little designs on him such as a clown face, a globe and various racing type patterns in bright colours. The racing design really does make him stand out and makes him different from the regular blue Thomas engines you can buy. Special Edition Thomas has a little magnetic connector on the front and back of his buffer, a typical characteristic of most of the Take n Play vehicles, his allows him to be connected to other vehicles in the range and also makes him compatible with he various Take n Play playsets available. Special Edition Thomas is a medium sized engine and measures 12.8 x 3.4 x 14cm, he is aimed at children aged 3 years and above which is typical for the vehicles and playsets in the Take n Play range, personally I think this is a fair age as there are ...

Thomas & Friends Take n Play Billy.

It was one he had wanted for a while, he was taken by him whilst looking at all the different Take n Play engines online with his Dad, Billy has buck teeth and he kept saying I like Billy he's got funny teeth. Billy like the other Take n Play engines is a little die cast metal engine, he has bright orange paintwork with his name on the side of his boiler in a black rectangle written in gold writing. He has bright red buffers which contrast his orange paint and 6 little orange wheels, these parts of him are made from plastic. Billy also has a black band around his face and a little black funnel. As with the tv character Billy, the Take n Play version also has Buck teeth, he has a happy and appealing face. Billy has a little magnetic connector on the front and back of his buffers, this allows him to be connected to other vehicles in the Take n Play range. Billy is one of the smaller engines in the range, he measures 12.4 x 5.8 x 3.3cm. He is aimed at children aged 3 years and above, again this is typical of other vehicles in the Take n Play range. Billy is very well made, detailed and finished to a high standard, the paint on him does chip a bit when played with, however my Son plays with his trains on a daily basis so a few chips are to be expected. Billy is one of the more rarer engines, he is available from places on,one such as Amazon and a site called Tootally Thomas. He is sold for between £20.00 and ...

Bert is much smaller than most of the engines in the range and measures 12.8 x 3.4 x 13cm, however despite being a lot smaller nothing has been compromised, he is well made, detailed and finished to the high standard I would expect from the Take n Play range.

Learning Curve Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Lady 03/05/2016

Thomas & Friends Take n Play Lady.

Learning Curve Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Lady The Thomas & Friends Take n Play Lady is not often in the Thomas and Friends programmes and is one or the rarer/ harder to get engines so when I found ours being sold at a really good price I just had to get it for my little boy. Take n Play Lady is as you would expect from this range a little die cast metal engine. Is her main paintwork is a lovely bright purple colour with gold detailing and s gold funnel and band around her face, she has her name written in gold swirly writing on the side of her boiler. Lady has slightly darker purple buffers, again with gold detailing and 4 bright purple wheels. Lady has a happy friendly face making her very appealing.

Lady is a smaller engine is he range and measures 14 x 3.5 x 12.5cm. It is aimed at children aged 3 years and above as with other items in the Take n Play range. Being made form metal it is very hardwearing and durable, you get the odd paint chip when played with regularly however this engine will. It easily be broken. This engine can be hard to get hold of, however it is available online from a site called Tootally Thomas where it is sold for £25.00, it is worth shopping around to see if it is available from places such as Amazon for a better price, we got ours cheaper doing this. Personally I think £25 is a bit much for ...

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Cargo Crew My Thomas mad 3 year old Son was bought this Set of Take n Play engines a little while ago by my Parents, it was one he chose himself purely for the 2 dump trucks that come with it.

The majority of the dump trucks are die cast metal as with a lot of the vehciles in the range, but the dump buckets on the back are made from ...

Thomas & Friends Sodors Legend of the Lost Treasure - W Awdry

Thomas & Friends Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure - W. Awdry Aswell has having hundreds of Thomas the Tank themed toys as you can probably guess we also have the books aswell. On Christmas Eve I did my 2 Sons a Christmas Eve box including various things such as a DVD, activity books and this particular book as it was the story of the DVD that was in the box. I've lost count of how many times we have read this my eldest Son loves it, my youngest is only 10 months but he is already showing a love for Thomas too. This is a paperback book, the front and back covers are made of a thick shiny card. The front cover has the Thomas and Friends logo at the top followed by the title of the book also stating this is a movie story book. The majority of hhe front cover is taken up with a large bright and colourful picture of 2 of the engines from the story and also a further 2 characters, the front cover really is eye catching. The back of the book has the same title information at the top followed by a little bit of writing about the story. Surrounding this are various pictures which are taken from the book and the film.

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Steamworks Tile Tracks 05/04/2016

Thomas & Friends Take n Play Steamworks Tile Track.

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Steamworks Tile Tracks As some of you may know I have a Thomas the Tank Engine obsessed 3 year old who has a massive collection of Take n Play sets and vehicles. Our latest addition to the ever growing collections is the Stramworks Tile Track, he has been asking for the Steamworks for a while now, I think he's trying to turn the house into the Island of Sodor. The Take n Play Stramworks Tile Track is one of the simplest sets in the range, it is basically a rectangle shaped tile which at the same time is the same silver track that makes up the other Take n Play sets, around the edge of he tracks are little cut out sections and prongs which allows the tile track to be connected up to other Take n Play sets in the range or spare track. In the centre of the tile is a brown plastic building shape, this has a green roof and arch way in the centre and a green swing door either side of the arch way. Across the top of the building is a sign saying Sodor Steamworks. Attached to the side of the. Utilising is a little removable plastic spanner attached by a plastic cord. That is basically it for this set it is just the tile track and building, however the whole thing is very well made and of an excellent quality as with other sets in this range. With this set you get a Take n Play engine which is Victor who works at the Sodor Stramworks. Victor is a little red steam engine with yellow detail, he has red buffers and 4 small yellow wheels. Victor has a little magnetic connector on the front and back of his ...

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Kevin 30/03/2016

Thomas & Friends Take n Play Kevin

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Kevin My Son is a massive Thomas fan and has a huge collection of the Thomas & Friends Take n Play engines and vehicles. One of his most recent vehicles he got was the Take n Play Kevin, one he has been wanting for a while now. Kevin is a little yellow crane who works at the Sodor Stramworks with Victor, he is well know for being clumsy with his favorite saying being "sorry boss, slip of the hook", Kevin is actually one of my favourites on Thomas. The Take n Play version of Kevin is a little die cast metal crane with his arm and hook being made from plastic. Kevin is a sort of rectangle come triangle shape, his base is black with 4 little yellow wheels attached, his main body is bright yellow with a sort of crest on his side and a bright yellow arm and hook on top. He has a yellow and black stripy band going around his base and also around his face. Kevin has a happy friendly face with little freckle, he is very appealing. What I liked about Kevin is that his crane arm does actually move up and down making it more realistic for children. The hook on the end of the arm is quite small and my Son was very pleased to discover that it was the perfect size to hook up his mini Thomas engines and drive them around. As with other vehicles in the Take n Play range Kevin is aimed at children aged 3 years and above. I was quite surprised at how small he was, he measures 8.9 x 2.5 x 12.7cm, on the to programme Kevin is a small engine so this is within keeping of this. Despite being small he ...

Mothercare Loved So Much Cot Spiral 25/03/2016

Mother are Loved So Much Cot Spiral.

Mothercare Loved So Much Cot Spiral Before my second Son was born my Parents bought him the Mothercare Loved So Much nursery set. One of the items that they bought him was the Mothercare Loved So Much Cot Sprial. The Mothercare Loved So Much Cot Sprial it's basically a cream and beige coloured padded spiral shape, it is made from a slightly furry fabric so is lovely and soft for yiur child to touch. Hanging from the spiral is a little brown teddy bear, a little white rabbit, a green heart and a clear plastic ring which has little beads inside of it. Aswell as the beads which rattle inside the plastic hoop the other toys make bell and rattle sounds. The toys are attached with little pieces of colour co-ordinated fabric, these are really short so that the toys dangle down enough but not so much that they would be a danger to your child. The.spiral can be used on either cots, car seats or pushchairs, the different sounds, textures and bright beads will capture your child's attention, and it is ideal for helping to develop hand eye co-ordination. The soft fabric of the Sprial makes it flexible and easy to attach,p, we have ours on our Sons cot and it was simply to wind around the top of the cot. The whole thing is extremely well made and of an excellent quality, all of the toys are securely attached so there is no worry about them being pulled off. This item came from Mothercare and was sold for £14, it is a little pricey for this item but in my opinion worth it, espically to get an excellent quality product ...

Fisher Price My First Thomas & Friends Rail Rollers Spiral Station 17/03/2016

My First Thomas & Friends Rails Rollers Spiral Station.

Fisher Price My First Thomas & Friends Rail Rollers Spiral Station The Fisher Price My First Thomas & Friends Rail Rollers Spiral Station was a very last minute Christmas present that I bought for my 2 Sons. My eldest Son who is 3 kept saying he wanted this, but then he was saying he wanted everything advertised on to at Christmas. However he never changed his mind about this so in the end I decided that I would buy it as a joint present between them, my youngest is now 8 months. I am glad I did buy it as it has been a hit with both of them. The Rail Roller Spiral Station is basically a large spiral track made up of different coloured sections. Next to this is a tall transparent blue tube; this is actually a lift and when the red button on the side is pushed down the base of he lift is raised up to the top of the tube, the is also a little section on the bottom to spin the Fat Controller is positioned in the middle and acts as the handle to make it spin. All of this is mounted on a large green based designed to look like a grassy slope. The whole thing is made from plastic but is tough and durable, ours has had a bit of rough handling especially from my youngest Son but it is not damaged at all and looks as good as new. Positioned down the spiral are little signs which can be spun when things roll down the spiral. It is of a good size and measures 38.5(h) x 51(w) x 13(d) cm. The whole thing comes in pieces and needs assembling, I personally didn't put ours together my Dad did on Christmas Day, however I was there at the time and it ...

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Straight & Curved Track 08/03/2016

Thomas & Friends Take n Play Straight and Curved Track.

Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Take-N-Play Straight & Curved Track As some of you may know my eldest Son is a massive Thomas the Tank Engine fan and a collector of the Take n Play range, my house is slowly being turned into the Island of Sodor. He already has a lot of the Take n Play playsets and likes to have them out together and connected up, however we were getting to the point where we were struggling to get them to all connect, so my Parents bought him he Take n Play Straight and Curved Track pack which gave him extra track allowing him to connect all his playsets up. There is nothing fancy about the Take n Play Straight and Curved Track, is comes in various shapes and lengths, it is made from a grey plastic which matches a lot of the playsets. It is textured and has ridges going down the centre of it, again to match the playsets, this gives it a more realistic look, there are also little areas which stick out of the sides of some of the pieces, these have little holes in them which I am assuming are for signs to be added. The track is made from a ridgid plastic and is tough and durable, ideal when being played with my a young child. In the pack you get 22 pieces of track, there are various sized straight pieces and various sizes curved places. The pieces have either little plastic prongs on the end or little groves, these allow the pieces to be fitted together and also connected up to the various Take n Play sets. Some pieces have a prong one end and a groove the other, other pieces have a groove either end and other pieces have a ...

Nuby Bug-a-Loop Teether 02/03/2016

Nubby Bug - a - Loop Teether.

Nuby Bug-a-Loop Teether I saw another child with the Nuby Bug - a - Loop Teether when I took my eldest Son to football one day and thought it was an excellent idea for a teether, so when I saw them while doing my Christmas shopping I decided to get one and put in my Son Christmas sack that we do for both of them. The idea of the teether is actually very simple, it is basically a double loop of tough and strong rope, then threaded around this are various beads and shapes, the rope is knotted in 2 places so that your child cannot remove the beads and so that they do not fall off. On the Teether loop are large brightly coloured oval beads, these are all made of a rubbery sort of material and each one has a different texture, some are smooth, others have little bumps on them, one has raised stripes on it and another has indentations on it, there is also one are round bead made from the same material. Either side of these large beads are smaller round beads, again these are all different colours but are made from a harder more ridgid plastic, these are have little indented pin pricks in them. The other beads on the loop are all in the shape of bugs, there is a ladybird, a dragonfly, a butterfly and a bumble bee, again these are bright,y coloured, they are made from a hard plastic but are textured with various raised areas. The final Brad is a large dark blue oval bead with the word Nuby on it in raised red writing. The Nuby Bug - a - Loop Teether is BPA free and is suitable for babies from 3 months ...

Fisher Price Puppy's Animal Friends Book.

Fisher-Price Puppy's Animal Friends The Fisher Price Puppy's Animals Friends book is actually a book I bought my eldest Son when he was under a year old, I usually wouldn't buy a book like this and prefer a regular book, however I had a money off voucher for this and it was on offer at the time meaning it only cost a few pounds. The Puppy's Animal Friends book isn't like regular books it is made entirely from plastic, it has a brig colourful picture of the Fisher Price Puppy and Friends on the front cover with the title Puppy's Animal Friends on the front. Aswell as the books pages so to speak here are also other interactive features on this book including a plastic caterpillar which can be slid across the top of he book, a little Fisher Price Puppy in the corner which can be moved, and a little wheel on the side of the book which can be spun.
