Learn and play in our #ToddlerToys Twitter party, sponsored by VTech and LeapFrog, on Friday, Nov. 1, from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. EDT. Join us for an hour full of fun, trivia, and giveaways with amazing prizes that encourage imaginative play and educational fun! During the party, you’ll learn all about three awesome toddler products, and you’ll even have a chance to win them. Check them out below!
Roar, dance, and laugh with the Mix & Match-a-Saurus, from VTech! This dinosaur comes with three emotion tiles (happy, angry, and sleepy), three music tiles (hip-hop, marching, and ballet), and three character tiles (dinosaur, robot, and monster). Kids can create 27 different combinations of emotions, music styles, and characters, such as a happy hip-hop dino or an angry marching monster. Every time a tile is inserted into the dinosaur’s back, the dinosaur moves, sings, dances, talks, or encourages kids to follow along for gross-motor play. Experimenting with the emotion tiles helps kids build social and emotional skills. Angry Dino may stomp around or say, “Let’s practice calming down,” helping kids learn that there are many ways to express feelings. When playtime is done, store the tiles in the dinosaur egg.
Raise the anchor and search for hidden treasure with the Treasure Seekers Pirate Ship, from VTech. Kids can place the captain or sailor on the recognition point to learn about sailing the mighty toy ship. Kids can strengthen fine-motor skills by turning the sails, spinning the steering wheel to navigate the high seas, or loading the cannon; and build gross motor skills by rolling the ship along using the pull cord. “Explore” mode helps kids discover colors and numbers, and “role-play” mode plays pirate sounds and phrases when kids press the light-up buttons. Little sailors can transform this two-in-one play set into a deserted island and find treasure. Keep the treasure away from the octopus and his spinning tentacles or prepare to walk the plank.
Ages 18 mos.+
Little grill masters can pretend to grill by securely placing eight different play-food items on the interactive skewer with LeapFrog’s Smart Sizzlin’ BBQ Grill. This smart grill recognizes the food’s name and color. Kids can twist the skewer to count along with the grill, then turn the temperature dial from one to 10. It also makes sizzling and cooking sounds. The grill knows if the heat is too high and asks to have the dial turned to a lower number. Safety messages are included, such as, “Careful. The grill’s hot! Don’t get burned.” Utensil hooks keep the tongs and spatula at the ready to serve steak, fish, green peppers, and more on the included plates. There are three different modes: “learn,” “play,” and “music.” Kids can press the flame-shaped star button to hear grilling suggestions, melodies, phrases, and sound effects. The pieces store inside the grill for easy cleanup.
