    Editorial Review

    Many high-tech toys start with a fun and fascinating idea only to make it frustratingly complicated in the execution. Leave it to LEGO to make a technologically advanced toy fun to play with. The enormous 718-piece LEGO Mindstorms Robotic Invention System lets you construct a variety of moving robot vehicles and then program them from your Windows 98- or Windows Me-compatible computer. The robots are all based around a bright yellow basic unit, which serves as the functional heart of whatever is being built. The brick receives commands from the computer via an infrared tower unit. The computer interface is incredibly user-friendly and intuitive. What's most impressive about the system, however, is the variety of robots that can be built. There are detailed instructions for each one, and since these are LEGOs, builders are free to come up with an endless variety. --John Moe ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Toy I have Played with in 40 Years
    This system is phenominal. We own version 1.5, purchased a year ago and we have not put it down. And trust me, this is not for kids only. I only wish there was something around like this when I was 12 - I was stuck with Robbbie the Robot replicas.
    When my son opened it for Christmas, we knew it would be a big hit. We have spend uncountless hours working on this together (quality, quality time) and the problem solving skills he has gained have put him in a position that he can now program a computer in Visual Basic at 12 years. (Not that this system teaches you VB, but it sure teaches you logic and structure, necessities for any program language)
    We have since bought all the expansion kits, a few books and have built robots capable of some unbelievable feats.
    Keep in mind that older Technic sets work well with these sets as well as many of the other Lego sets you have.
    I would recommend this set to anyone, especially those who longed for a real robot as a child, not a "flashing lights only" Robbie.

    Best think ever
    I have this toy for more then a yeat and it still is fun,i keep making stuff i even made a robotic hand, this is the best thing ever well what are you wating for buy it!!!

    Beware of software incompatibilty
    Unless you have Windows 98 or Windows ME, it may not work (who knows -- you may get lucky). I refuse to use either of these operating systems, which I consider wretched. The Mindstorm official FAQ says it was tested only on those 2 operating systems. For those who can get it to work, apparently it's a great product.

    Great Product, but IR Tower has problems w/certain computer
    Great Product - but like another reviewer, I had the same issues with the IR Tower and XP. Non of the Lego Support Documents were of much use, but using an older PC with Windows 98 did the trick.

    A MUST!!!!!
    I am an engineering student and we use these in our robotics lab. Adults with an interest in programming can use java or C to program, children can use the included software. The software is an easy to use visual drag and drop type software. I would recommend every parent to purchase this toy. It allows the kids to learn the basics of programming and see the immediate results when the program is downloaded to the robot. My 9 year old daughter never lost interest in my assignments. This is one of the best learning toys I have ever seen. I am planning on purchasing on for myself to use with my daughter (lots of little parts, messy children will need some supervision or most of the robot will be in the vacuum). Children between 7-12 will enjoy the product, with alot of assistance from parent, over 12 should have no trouble at all with it. Excellent for education, and a lot of fun for a parent - child activity. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Music stimulates the brain and encourages early learningskills. This interactive cube lets children choose from any combinationof five different instruments--harp, French horn, piano, flute, andviolin--to collaborate on eight Mozart tunes. A solo flute might playan excerpt from "Ah! Vous Dirai-je, Maman (Twinkle, Twinkle)," or aFrench horn intone a theme from The Marriage of Figaro. Otherchoices include "Country Dance #5," "Come Sweet May," "Der Vogelfanger"(from The Magic Flute), "March in D," "Landler," and "LàCi Darem la Mano" (from Don Giovanni). Press the "orchestra"button and hear all the instruments play together. As the songs play,each selected instrument button flashes to the beat. The sound is notorchestral quality, but you get a fair electronic approximation of eachinstrument. Operates on three AA batteries (not included). --TamiHoriuchi ... Read more

    fabulous for babies and toddlers
    My daughter loved this toy when she was six months old, and still loves it at 18 months. I have had no durability issues, and when I noticed the instruments playing out of sync I replaced the batteries, which solved the problem. I love that she can select different instruments to listen to, and that it exposes her to more than the usual canned electronic baby music... she now has a love for instrumental music! This is a fantastic addition to her toybox.

    Great music, but it doesn't hold my son's interest.
    I seem to be more interested in this toy than my 8 month old. There are lots of beautiful songs and the music is very high quality for an electronic toy. It's too bad my son doesn't like to play with it, because the music is so much nicer to listen to than any of his other toys!

    BEST toy we have, by far!
    This toy was given to me for my 1 yr old daugther. She is almost 2 yrs now, and she still LOVES playing with it. It is very durable, considering how much she tosses it (and that another baby played with it before they gave it to us). Also, we have only had to change the batteries once. We take it with us every where we go, and it has served us very well in the car - especially in those moments when she just doesn't want to be put in the car seat. It has been very educational as well, in that she can now identify each instrument by name and picture, and presses the appropriate button. She will keep playing the instruments over and over - and yet we don't get tired of it either. This is one of the best toys we have, by far.

    He loved it- while it lasted
    This toy gets my son's attention- and did since he got it for his first Christmas (9 months)- but unfortunately, it is NOT DURABLE. You cannot let the child actually play with the toy- if they throw it at all, it's history. And guess what- most babies throw things when they get excited. They tend to drop things, too- the toy is heavy for a small child. He loved the lights, and he loved pressing teh big buttons- the music is not too bad, either- but for the cost, you want it to be durable so the baby can play with it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best toy yet!
    My parents gave this to my daughter when she was three months old, and she seemed to like the musical sounds as we pressed the buttons. She is now eight months old, and she STILL loves it! It is her favorite toy. At 5 months, we would put it between her legs for balance while she learned to sit up, and she would make the music play. Now she's learning to crawl, and she always goes for this toy! The music is NOT annoying, and we enjoy listening to it as much as she does. We feel like she will enjoy this toy for a long time to come! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Did you know that painted ladies (the butterflies, that is) taste with their feet and have 10,000 eyes? You and your kids will be fascinated by all you learn about these beautiful creatures with the Butterfly Garden from Insect Lore. The kit comes with a relatively easy-to-assemble observation chamber; supplies for feeding the butterflies (you provide only sugar and water); an informative booklet of clear instructions and butterfly facts; and a certificate for three to five free painted lady caterpillars. The metamorphosis from larva to butterfly takes about three weeks from when you receive the caterpillar larvae (which arrive in a small container with all the nutrients they need). Your children can watch the larvae increase dramatically in size, form chrysalides, and finally emerge into full-fledged painted ladies (it's suggested that they release the butterflies after a few days of observation). This would make a wonderfulactivity for families with kids of any age, but younger children will need help assembling the observationchamber and reading the instruction booklet. (Note: The manufacturer recommends that butterflies should not be set free in temperatures lower than 55 degrees Fahrenheit.) --Rachel Radway ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars So fun I Bought My Own!
    I bought one of these last year for my nieces. I also got one for me, and I'm in my 30's. I waited until the spring time to send in my caterpillar certificate. They came in their own little container with just enough food. So you don't need to feed them anything. I tried to put some real food such as leaves from the plants they like to eat in the wild, but they preferred the food that came with them. I think I received 6 caterpillars and they all turned into butterflies. I let them go a day or two after they emerged. Kids are completely fascinated by the process from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. One word of caution, it may not be the best thing to get for Christmas since you may have to wait until spring to get your caterpillars. They will send them in the winter, but I didn't want the butterflies to die on me or freeze to death if I let them go.

    Our kids loved this
    Our daughters received the Butterfly Garden from their grandfather. The whole family really enjoyed the entire process from catepillar to butterlfy. Very educational for the kids. Unfortunately, though we had three cocoons, only one of the butterflies actually survived. Nevertheless, this is a great gift and one I just bought for my nephew.

    Tons of Fun and Educational too!
    My daughter received this toy from her cousin. She is 5. At first my son was a little grossed out by the worm looking caterpillars but once they grew and I pinned the paper disc with the attached chrysalides to the netted garden, it was worth it. My 2 kids just sit there and watch. It's better than TV. One caterpillar died but 3 have already emerged. My daughter has named the three butterflies and she loves watching "Crystal" balance herself on the orange wedge that she placed in the hut. I find myself checking on them at least 4 times a day because it is so interesting. We are waiting for the last one to emerge before we set the other three free. My daugher doesn't want the last one to be lonely.

    A wonderful combination of fun and education
    My daughter had a wonderful time learing about butterflies and watching them emerge. This is a fantastic teaching tool, with clear instructions and easy to use equipment. I can't rave enough about this toy!!!!

    WOW! This thing is cool!
    I recieved my Butterfly Garden yesterday and boy, was I excited! The pop-up mesh butterfly habita is so neat. I've always wanted one! I sent away for my caterpillars today. If you want to give something or get something GREAT, the Butterfly Garden is a good idea! :) ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Guess what! Dora the Explorer has jumped on the royal bandwagon! This intrepid explorer is now a fairy tale princess with magical hair that grows when the jewel in her crown is pressed with a wand. Dora talks and sings, too, in both English and Spanish: "Vamanos! Let's go to fairytale land! Will you brush my hair?" The 14-inch-tall plastic doll is not designed to be cuddled so much as played with and groomed. She is attired in a satiny yellow gown trimmed in pink and purple, and has a brush, barrettes, and magic wand. The magical tresses emerging from the hair-growing tube are quite realistic, although grownups, at least, might be a little unnerved at the sleek brown hair oozing in and out of Dora's head. Still, children are experts at suspending disbelief and accepting weirdness in the world, so they probably won't mind a bit. Four AA batteries required (included). --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic experience!
    Raising butterflies with the Butterfly Pavilion was an experience that my kids and I will never forget. I'm a single parent trying to raise two young kids on my own. I'm busy and don't have much time to take them outside to experience nature. I wanted to give them something that would nurture their respect of nature. Boy did I pick the right item. We mailed our free certificate and about 10 days later, we received our caterpillars. Within about 7 days, they changed into chrysalides. We waited about a week, then suddenly, the butterflies started hatching. In fact, we got to see 4 of them come out within about 30 minutes of each other. It was the most fantastic experience. We kept the butterflies inside the netted habitat for about 5 days, then released them outside. My little 4-year-old girl cried as she had to free her "butterfries", but understood why it was important to do so. We'll never forget this experience and highly recommend the Butterfly Pavilion to everyone.

    THE best summer project!!!
    The kids have never been so excited about what will happen next. We couldn't wait for the caterpillars to come in the mail...counting the days. They all (10) did what they were supposed to do: eating, growing, spinning web, hanging. One did not turn into a chrysalis, and one chrysalis did not hatch, but we had 8 butterflies. They are easy to care for. They even lay eggs and the eggs hatch into tiny caterpillers. We haven't past the 2nd set caterpillar stage yet, but are hoping...


    Spendid!! Simply, spendid!! Creative,educational-fun!!
    (Coin a new word: Educational-fun!!!) As well as affordable
    and very cleve!! Good show!!

    I enjoyed this as much as my son!!
    Both of us being 'nature buffs', my 6 year old son and I had a wonderful time with this.
    We sent away for our catarpillars (every day he would say, 'have they come in yet'?) and when they arrived, put them in the habitat.

    When I was a little girl, I caught a bunch of catarpillars, put them in a shoebox, with grass, leaves and whatever else I thought they might eat. I punched holes in the shoe box lid and then covered the box, and basically forgot about it until a few days or so, opened it and saw my catarpillars had made cocoons. Before long, they were moths and I remember how excited I was to see them!

    With this habitat, you get to WATCH the whole process of metamorphosis and it is truly amazing AND educational!! When they finally transformed into butterflies, my son was so thrilled, altho a little saddened when we had to set them free.

    I'm thinking about purchasing this again, one for my son and myself, and also one for his second grade teacher so his whole class can enjoy the experience.

    If your child enjoys the wonders of natures and would love to witness the miracle of transformation of catarpillars into butterflies, this is DEFINATELY well worth the money! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars mothers best friend
    some kids have favorite toys which they can grow out of, get bored with etc.. The fun with this play set is, no matter how young or old your child is, if they like dinosaurs the fun is endless with this playset.. there is so many different varities of dino's to choose from that its hard to choose your favorite, also, the accessories add the imagination of real life dino atmosphere... They can learn about the different species, what they ate, who could fly, swim, who was bigger, faster.. etc... this is an awsome all round toy..

    Great review from the child I bought it for!
    I purchased this toy for a dinosaur loving little boy who lives in another state. I figured this was a good buy, to get him something different than the usual Wal-mart gift. (Hoping that I wasn't getting him something that he already had.)

    He loved it! He loved the volcanoes.......that was way cool for him. And the fact that it could be packed up got rave reviews from the Mom.

    If you've got a dinosaur lover, this is a great gift!

    It ROCKS!!!!!
    This playset is very reilistic and has lots of dinosaurs! It also has a reilistic mat that you can put your dinosaurs on! Set include my favorite dinosaur, T-rex!! Get this for your kiddos! The'll love it! :)

    Great Dinosaurs!
    My 4 year old son saw this same set at a neighbor's house and he didn't want to put them down! LITERALLY! (We had to carry him home screaming apologizing profusely for his behavior to everyone) Even days after, he wanted to go over and play with them. But the screaming episode afterward kept bugging me and didn't want to go through that again.

    So I asked my neighbor where she got them and logged on to to find them. The local Toys R Us were sold out.
    For less then $25- it's a great collection.
    With so many dinosaurs in various sizes, trees, rocks, volcanos and a playmat in a great carrying case- I couldn't resist to get them.

    We took them to the beach just last week and there were 3 other kids ranging in ages of 2 to 5 and we were amazed how quiet they were playing with them. Only problem was getting them back from them when it was time to come home. It was their turn to scream =)

    The names of the dinosaurs are underneath them, so if Mom and Dad can't remember which is which, flip them over and with confidence call out the name. Therefore impressing the kids to the end of the earth. "Mom you are so smart" my son once told me. Hey, it felt good!
    And soon you and the kids will be able to recognize their names without peeking.

    Great gift for all ages and he continues to play with them months later. ahhh peace and quiet.

    GREAT toy set! Great Price!
    My 5 year old nephew LOVED this set, he is very into dinosaurs. Even his three year old sister liked to play with it too. The dinosaurs are large, and some have moving parts. This is a must for any child that loves dinosaurs! ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    "Sunsparkle" Pony's Celebration Castle requires basic construction, but putting it together with a grownup will be a fun adventure, as Pony lovers see the charming structure taking form. Once finished, "Sunsparkle" (an included and somewhat rare Pony) can happily trot around her master bedroom, vanity room, disco, kitchen, and a bathroom. Each room features furnishings or appliances that have clever innovations, such as a stove that doubles as a kitchen sink. There's also a working elevator, full-length mirror, hot air balloon, two balconies, tableware, Pony clothing, and a brush for "Sunsparkle's" mane. As a gift, a sparkling pink, child-sized crown is included. To top it all off, the castle features charming music and flashing lights on the disco dance floor!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun for kids...not for parent
    My 4 y.o. absolutely loves this castle. Yes, the 2 pink "turrets" that hold the crown and balloon merely set on top of the castle and do fall off (double side tape or velcro fixes this), and the pink curtain/shelf above the yellow stairs falls off with little pressure. But my daughter doesn't seem to mind. I haven't really had any other problems other than what I've mentioned. If you are giving it as a gift, I would suggest putting it together before hand as there are DOZENS of small star and heart stickers that took me forever to apply. Otherwise, I just have to keep reminding myself who this toy is really child who seems to love it despite its flaws.

    not worth the money or time
    My daughter just turned 4 and loves my little Ponies. She got this as a gift (despite the reviews) and hasn't played with it since we put it together, which was time consuming oh and the stickers, c'mon why aren't they prelabeled? She takes her ponies and plays with them in her durable doll house.
    Something on this castle falls apart as soon as you touch it. It's a cute idea, just very poorly made.

    This toy is crap!
    My 3 yo has been dying for this castle for her ponies...we used it as major bribe for potty training...We opened up and went through the nightmarish installation process...could you add any more stickers? But the worst part is that the whole thing falls apart constantly! The stupid balloon landing turrets on the top have NO attachment so they fall off when you barely bump it or try to play...the elevator sticks...the frames around the windows fall off...the balloon falls apart...the front walkway and back staircase fall off...the spinning dance floor covers up the door music heart so you cannot operate the music with the dance floor on...the dance floor does not work in the turrets as stated since it is just too awkward to spin...the crown will not stay together...I should have read the reviews on before buying it since any were bad, but I never dreamed it would be so bad...Does Hasbro care nothing about who they are creating these toys for? My daughter loves her ponies and I have had fun collecting them for is sad that the castle is such a disgrace...but my Daughter is happy to have it, would cry if I returned it and I guess I will have to glue down as many of the pieces as I can...(...)

    This Toy is tons of Fun for Pony Lovers
    Okay I have read all the other reviews, and much of it is true, it was a pain to put on all the stickers, the elevator doesn't move very well, and you are better off if you glue on some of the pieces, and definitely pitch the crown thing. But all that being said, I am so glad that Santa brought this for my daughter. She is still playing with it almost daily. And nothing has broken either. Yes some things needed to be glued on to stay but big deal, they didn't break they just came off and after a little super glue they are fine. The castle is so much fun, the way it plays music and lights up when a pony crosses the entrance is great. And I think the baby pony was the highlight of Christmas for my daughter. So my point is, yes it is a bit of a pain to set up for parents, but not as bad as some make it sound and it is worht it. Also save your pony-points ( and send for the mat of Ponyville. It has a spot for the castle, the cafe and the salon, it is really cute. We have the whole thing set up on her playtable (a train table basically)

    Pony Castle Fun but work!
    We bought this for our daughter for Christmas shortly after her 3rd birthday. Assembly was a nightmare, there must be a million stickers to put on. The water fountain/pool that goes under the bridge falls off constantly as do all the other little parts that are not permanently attached. I think they do this so you can fold it away but even with the parts detached it doesn't fold well. The upper parts for the crown and hot air baloon come off at the slightest jerk of a young child playing which makes our daughter a little upset when she has a plan for the ponies to fly off in the baloon and the pieces have fallen on the floor several times. The crown is completely unusable, it doesn't fit well on the castle and comes apart when worn.
    All in all though, this has been a huge hit with my daughter who has nearly EVERY pony. She plays with it often and we got the "map" of ponyville (available through the mfg with "pony points") which shows where the castle, salon and cafe are to go and we play ponies for hours. It's great for imagination and pretend play. ... Read more

    Just about every child loves to dribble and shoot basketballs, but not every household with children has the right space for a court. This freestanding basketball hoop might be an ideal solution. Since the height of the hoop can be adjusted according to your child's height and skill level (the hoop goes as low as 42 inches and as high as 5 feet), this is a great investment for children as young as 3 years old. The large backboard (22 by 28 inches) helps keep the ball in play. You can make its heavy-plastic stand even more stable by filling the hollow base with sand or water. Wheels on the bottom make it especially portable. --Gail Hudson ... Read more

    It a family toy for everyone
    AS soon as the boxes got to my house my wanted me to open right away. They played for hours. His family got together at our house and my sister-in law was playing her son who is 10 year old was out the girl next door. It was a crowd pleaser. Everyone had so much fun even my husband who is big on basketball. You also can bring it in the house in the winter as long as you keep under 5 feet. If you have anyone in the house who love sport this the perfect toys . the biggest thing I like about it is that is mobile. I have a three years old and four old and just love it.

    I have had this product for some time now and have called Fisher Price three times to have the rim replaced. They won't replace the rim anymore and have asked for me to ship the unit back to them to examine. IF any weight ie. tugging on the rim (or trying to emulate their NBA role models by hanging from it) or using a heavier ball, the rim will drop down because at the back of the rim the plastic is thin and crushes like an aluminum can. When the rim drops more than 45 degrees, the rim falls on the child and the heavy backboard then falls down like a guillotine on any child near it. Very unsafe in my opinion. I am going to see what other brands look like and I'm retiring this one.

    What's NOT to like?!?!
    I can't believe anyone would complain about this product!!! It is absolutely WONDERFUL!!! The wheels let us move it all around, it easily adjusts to whatever height my son decides he wants it at (depending on whether he wants to shoot or dunk) and it has already lasted for 2 1/2 years and looks brand new. We're debating about buying a second one for outdoors so that we can keep the current one in his room! It is his favorite toy...

    Its pretty good...
    I found this toy very hard to adjust to varying heights. We ended up leaving it at just one height, which kind of defeated the "grow to pro" aspect. It certainly did hold up well and it had a place to set two basketballs, which we also liked. Adjustment was odd and awkward.

    Built So Well I needed a HAMMER
    My wife and I just purchased this for our son for Easter. He loves it. "BASKETBALL FUN!" That's his exact words and he's only 2.

    I'm sure as my son gets older the educational value will increase to build teamwork and basic skills.

    It's so well built I needed a Hammer. On their scale it should have a scale to rate how hard it was to put together. My wife and I put most of it together with in a couple minutes. The problem started when we put the first section of plastic in the front section. Well after we reviewed the situation I thought it would be better to put it in the rear position. My wife and I wrestled with that thing for 15 minutes until I said, "GET THE HAMMER!" I pounded on that thing until it came undone. I was heated. Anyway it's all worth our sons enjoyment. Just make sure you put the post in the position your sure you want it. :) ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Hey, even Michael Jordan was a toddler once. And just think of how many more millions he might have made if he had practiced on a hoop-and-ball set like this one when he was a height-challenged hoopster. With the Easy Score Basketball set those impromptu dunking clinics will be challenging, but no longer impossible. Future MJs can now practice their skills with ease, because the Easy Score adjusts to height, has a size-appropriate hoop, and is made of durable plastic. The over-size rim (1 foot across, with a nylon hoop) can be set anywhere, as it only rises from 2.5 to 4 feet high, putting lay-ups and treys just within reach. A sturdy 15-by-19-inch base keeps the basket from tipping; this is important for young hoopsters who get a little too exuberant. The set comes with a tot-sized (6-inch-wide) rubber b-ball.--Paul Hughes ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Darn good toy, my 20m old girl LOVES it!
    This basketball set is great. As long as you attach the rim according to instructions and fill the base w/sand (use a wide mouth funnel), it will not come apart or tip over easily. My 20m old girl uses it almost every day, many times twice a day. Her 8 yr., 5 yr. and 2 yr. old cousins also love it. People who have had problems with the rim coming off did not attach it properly and those that tip over did not put sand in the base. It would be a good idea to buy a couple of extra same size balls and a small hand pump for them, especially if more than one child uses it at a time.

    Great toy.
    We bought this for our 22 mo old son for christmas. He loves to play ball...any kind. An even younger child, like 18 month would be a good intro for this toy also. He really likes this. I think it will endure his roughness. It was easy to put together. Santa appreciated that. Enjoy.

    We Keep this in the Family Room!
    I highly recommend this toy! I purchased this when my son was about 15 months old, and it still looks brand new even though we use it just about every day. We keep it in the house in the family room, and on rainy days when we can't get outside, it makes a wonderful physical activity. Every child who comes in this house can't resist playing with it! My nieces have enjoyed this as much as my two boys. My husband certainly has enjoyed it too. . .

    Excellent Toy
    My toddler loves this. Very durable, but must make sure the rim snaps into place.

    Super fun for my son!
    This toy requires no tools for set up. I was able to set it up in less than 5 minutes. My 2 year old son loves it. I like the fact that you can adjust the height. I put this in the front yard of my home and all the toddlers in the neighbor play with it. It seems to be very durable. Had it for about one month now and it's still holding up. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Your child will love it. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Just like the real front loaders you might see working along the highway, the Mighty Front Loader was designed to dig, dump, and haul. With its large working bucket, deep-cleated tires, and heavy-duty steel construction, this solid truck is guaranteed for life and built for endless hours of fun in the sandbox or yard. Two handles let you control the angle of the work bucket so you can dig or dump sand and dirt, or move rocks around. Or you can set the bucket in a middle position when you want to haul things for a while without holding the handle. The cab and engine sections swivel, making it easy to steer the front loader to where the work is. The large wheels (4.5-inch diameter) have been mounted over strong steel axles, tested for up to 50 pounds. Realistically styled, the front loader measures 22 inches long by 8 inches wide by 9.5 inches high. --Chris Burns ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars LOTS OF FUN FOR BOYS AND GIRLS!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Too Much Plastic Too little metal
    The front loader has too much plastic on it. 10 years ago it would have been made mainly of metal and very little plastic used. Of course today it is all about maximizing profits at the sake of durability. Steer Clear. There are still products like this made from metal on the market and I would rather pay a little extra for the quality. Obviously Tonka has lost touch with its customer base.

    Buy it
    These are the BEST toys in the world for kids who love transportation. I got this on special with the free dump truck and they have been all over the house, yard and even went on display for show and tell in grade K. All the kids love it.

    If this is on special with the free dump truck as it is several times then don't hesitate get two and save it for a birthday gift. Both girls and boys love 'em. Great buy.

    Built Tonka Tough
    What a great toy! Talk about imagination! And then again, there's the Tonka quality. This guy gets slammed around quite a bit and still looks brand new. Plus, it's great imaginative fun in the sandbox and in the house. Don't pass this one up!

    My 2 1/2 year old son loves this truck! He didn't want to open anything else on Christmas morning, and this was one of the first gifts that he opened. He loves it. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Serafina, the pampered snowy-white companion of Princess Anneliese, certainly does not lack self-esteem. This chatty kitty burbles over with more than 75 one-liners, including, I am quite the talented kitty, and I love looking pretty. Squeeze her paw, stroke her back, kiss her nose, and Serafina responds with words, songs, purrs, head tosses, tail wags, and, of course, meows. Additionally, when her human friends set up Serafina's jewelry box next to a CD player and insert Serafina's Adventure (included), signals from the CD and jewelry box cause Serafina to do her feline thing! She'll also respond to the Barbie as The Princess and the Pauper and other Serafina DVDs and videos. Measuring a good 22 inches from pink-tipped ears to long fluffy tail, Serafina has blue eyes, a gem-studded crown, and a matching heart-shaped locket, as well as a brush to keep that lush pelt sleek and smooth. Her jewelry box requires one 9-volt battery (not included), and Kitty herself requires three AA batteries (Try Me batteries included, but you'll need fresh ones). --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

    Awesome toy - extremely durable for boys!
    Okay, if you have a boy, grab this set. Little Tikes must know how strong little guys get and make their products accordingly. Our neighbor decided that my son needed to learn how to play golf so I had to get him this set. It is so much better than my neighbor's daughter's set and 10 times more durable. She has a generic one but I opted for Little Tikes because I know how rough my guy can be. He has so much fun with this set and we even bought him a package of tees so he can golf like a pro. He really enjoys it and has even learned a great swing at three!

    Megan's Mom
    I purchased this Golf Set for my daughter at least 18 months ago & can't complain one bit about it. It has been played with very frequently but still looks new. Every child (& some adults) that come over play with it (b/c she's always handing someone one of the clubs hehe) and it makes everyone happy. It is a very durable toy but I also see it as a way to teach good sportsmanship & sharing skills.

    Don't forget the girls!
    We bought this for our daughter for her second birthday and she loves it. It is outside, which I am now realizing is a big mistake. She turns everything else in our house into golf (wiffle bats, her rain stick, etc.) I guess I need to bring it in for the winter. Little Tykes did not let us down!

    Highly recommended
    What a great toy for toddlers! Hitting a ball off the ground is much easier than doing so off a tee (as in baseball), so this toy really builds their confidence! Fun for parents to play along too. The cart can be used to for other things besides golf. My son received this for his 2nd birthday, and has given it much use in the last year.

    The Best Golf Set We've come across!
    This is my son's 4th (yes 4th) ste of golf clubs. He's tough on his toys, like any toddler, but the Little tykes set has lasted longer than the other three sets combined. If your son wants a set or you want him to have a set of play club, you can't go wrong with these. The oversized balls are big help too, not to mention, I can now put my practice balls away. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Toy For Active Kids
    This was a great craft kit for my children. My 7-year-old daugther received one for her birthday. She loved it so much since she could paint the soccer ball with colors that she had mixed and chosen. I just bought one for my son also. Both my kids love sports and I prefer them doing something active and fun rather than watching television. I love this kit since both my son and daugther can use it and you get a real soccer ball that the kids can play with after the paint dries.

    Cool Look, But won't Last
    This seems like a lot of fun, but at the same time most people nowadays are looking for the new cool-looking Adidas or Nike. Plus it probably won't last very long because of the material.

    Coming from a kid
    Coming from a kid, I must say that this is a wonderful item to have. I got it for my birthday last year and I loved it. I played with all the time. I painted it my own way, and it tought me to be more creative. It looks still liked new, after a year of playing Traveling Soccer. I had my friends sign my soccer ball and now everyone wants to play with it! I love it and if your kid is sporty and has fun painting and stuff...getting this for your kid is a great idea. I loved getting this and so will you!

    Mighty indeed! This Tonka backhoe is aptly named. Riding high above the ground (11 inches) on large, rugged tires (4.5 inches indiameter), it's constructed of heavy-duty steel and durable plastic. Realistically styled after a full-size backhoe, it has a long steel arm for digging deep or scooping up rocks and dirt. The backhoe can swivel a full 360 degrees on the truck bed, making it easy to load dirt into other trucks or get to those hard-to-reach rock piles. There's a sure-grip handle on the side of the arm for lifting and lowering, and another handle at the base of the arm lets the "driver" extend or retract the work bucket for scooping and dumping. The backhoe sits on strong steel axles that have been tested with a 50-pound load. With a lifetime guarantee to back it up, the Mighty Backhoe is built to withstand all the rough play your kids can dish out. --Chris Burns ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars The way Tonka ought to be!
    I got this backhoe for my 3 year old last year and it has put up with more abuse than any toy should have to face -yet it still works well & looks fine. My son has had an enormous amount of fun playing with it, riding on it, attacking his sister with it, etc. and it keeps coming back for more. Don't bother with motorized plastic, this is the real thig!

    My 3 year old grandson loves favorite trucks
    I bought the backhoe, dump truck and the back loader and recently purchase the crane for him. He takes them everywhere he goes. His father takes him to see the real ones at work and he know what each one is called.

    They are very durable. Great trucks.

    Great toy
    My boys (2 and 3) love this!!!
    (It's metal, so not great for really little children.)

    Your kid is going to LOVE this!!
    I bought this backhoe, the front loader, and the dump truck for my 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 year old boys. The quaility is great and we love the steroid size of these classic construction vehicles! My children really dig these huge toys. They get lots of imaginative and creative play with these construction toys as well as practice with hand-eye dexterity and manipulation. There is so much fun to have in piles of sand, rocks, gravel, or plain old dirt!

    Fun and leaning in one toy.
    This is a toy that works great in combination with the Tonka Mighty Dump Truck.

    My nephew normally is glued to computer games, but this toy actually got him to play outside for a change.

    It is durable and works best when the child has access to dirt/sand. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Memory!!
    My 8-year old daughter received this Paint the Wild Butterflies as a birthday gift, when we started the project together, I was surprised that my 5-year son got really into it too. We had a really wonderful time painting, imagining and laughing at the table while doing this project. I have never seen activity kits with actual handcrafted wood and the butterflies actually look life-like as opposed to be machined made. The paints are suprisingly good quality, it dried quickly and we were able to change colors and added stripes and spots. I did wish there was more than 1 paintbrush to do all 3 at the same time. My daughter made it into a eye-catching ornament with gift card for her dad and my son and I each made a magnet. It is most definitely a memorable project and it captured my kids' artistic expressions which I am sure will bring smiles years from now.

    Awesome for family fun
    I bought this for my daughter for christmas and we made it a family project, we each painted a butterfly and it was alot of fun, gave her a chance to use her imagination as to what she wanted HER butterfly to look like...She attached the magnets and we now have it displayed on our refridgerator. I would definately reccomend this for a child who loves to be creative.

    Cheap wood pieces
    This kit is a great idea, but the butterflies break apart pretty easily. Need to make them of more durable wood.

    Easy craft project for kids
    My son at age 7 enjoyed this kit. It comes with 3 wooden butterflies, paint, paintbrush, etc. There is a small pamphlet included with some information about butterflies. We added our own glitter glue and other items to make the butterflies more decorative.

    Ever since I read j.singh's The Butterfly to my kids they've been obsessed with caterpillars and butterflies and just about the entire insect kingdom. So, undoubtedly, I've been cajoled into buying pretty much every butterfly book on the market (i plan to bill Singh!). Now having read all these books I consider myself a sorta self-proclaimed authority whose mission is to save parents time and money. And so here are the winners according to me and my two wonderful children. The gold medal goes to GOOD NIGHT SWEET BUTTERFLIES (for the illustrations color and content); the silver medal to FROM BUTTERFLY TO CATERPILLAR (for content and pictures); and the bronze to WAITING FOR WINGS (for content). There are plenty of others but these are a good place to start. Hope I've been helpful. ... Read more

    Parents looking to encourage a love of athletics in their children without breaking the bank buying up an infinite variety of sports gear, may wish to consider this versatile set branded by the folks at ESPN, who know a thing or two about sports. Its a collapsible freestanding kit that offers six sports in all. Basketball is rendered in the model of the classic pop-a-shot game, keeping score as you shoot baskets. In football, youre the quarterback throwing a ball through a small hoop, the same hoop used to test your pitching accuracy in the baseball mode. The action moves to the floor for the other sports as you kick at a small target with a soccer ball, slap a puck at a small target in hockey, and putt into a cup for golf. All necessary gear is included for each sport and an electronic scoring system and the canned voice of ESPN announcer Stuart Scott add to the fun. Some sports in this set work better than others, basketball being a little more fun than hockey, but the sheer versatility of this set make it a good option and means it will be hard for anyone to run out of challenges. --Charlie Williams ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very cute 5 yr old loves it!~
    My five year old got this for her birthday this year and still plays with it regularly after four months. Her little friends still love to come over and play with the My Little Pony Dance Studio as well. In the world of toys, this is un heard of! (HA!) One thing that is a con on this toy is the fact that it does fall apart easily but it is just as easily put back together.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Buy this instead of the castle
    Based on the castle reviews, I am really glad my little girl got this instead of the class. It can fall appart pretty easy
    , but the parts are easy to put back on. It folds up neatly and you can squueze about 5 more ponies in once it's closed. A few cute, but very small parts (glasses, cake). It's loud, the dance floor spins, and lights up, so my 3 year old loves it. It's cheaply made, but she loves it. And, it's a great travel toy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, a pony playset of good quality!
    This awesome dance studio is definately five stars! (It's much better made than that castle, and is ten dollars less.) Getting it out of the package and ready to play, complete with the nessescary three triple A batteries, took us less than ten minutes.
    The studio folds up into a case complete with a handle for traveling, and opens into a huge ball room with revolving dance floor. When you press a button, lights flash and one of three songs play. A pony can stand on each of the three colorful wheels, one of which spins on its own.
    Ponies can practice in the rehearsal studio, which includes a barre, a vanity, and a screen for changing. The vanity drawers pop open and posters of the various inhabitants of Ponyville dancing plaster the walls.
    On the opposite side of the studio, ponies can snack on one of five delicious treats, have some punch, or watch the performance from a balcony.
    We appreciated the better quality and play value of this playset, and hope you will too!

    My son, Jake, received the pogo stick as a gift when he was five. It has become his prized toy above his scotter, bike, blades, etc. He is now almost eight and I thought would want a "better" version, but his pogo stick is irreplaceable: It is very durable and lightweight (we've taken it on many vacations) It is easy to manuever(he can jump over and around anything and for close to an hour with few stops). The other pogo stick is being returned and we're buying another of this version.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Some of the best money I have ever spent!!!
    My daughter received this for Christmas when she was six. She had never been on one before, so it took her a while to work on her balance and stay up on it. One jump became three, three jumps became ten, ten jumps became twenty five, and so on. With continued practice, her current record is over six hundred jumps without stopping. (Yes ---- she was exhausted afterward, but oh so proud of herself!!) This has been a wonderful toy, and well worth the $20 spent. Her balance has been incredible, and it's really quite a workout. She has had such fun competing against her old record jumps.

    It is well-constructed over-all, but be sure to watch the rubber tip on the bottom if your child is a jumper like mine. She literally wore through the rubber tip without my realizing it, and the metal end of the stick had nothing to grip, once sending her flying onto the garage floor and hitting her head. Besides a goose egg she was OK, but she now wears her bike helmet to jump. (When I called the company they promptly sent me replacement tips at no charge.)

    We have been very happy with this toy and are now purchasing the heavier Master Pogo since she's at the top of the weight range for this one.

    Great update of a traditional toy!
    My daughter received this pogo stick as a gift when she was five. At age six, she is still getting the hang of it, but she and her friends in the neighborhood have had a lot of fun with it. The foam cover is durable and prevents rust and dents which could render the toy unsafe. Also, the spring is covered, so there is no easy opportunity for injury to the child or damage to the spring. This is quieter and safer than the pogo stick I grew up with in the 80's!

    My Sweet Pogo Stick
    This is my first Pogo stick. It really helps you with other games for balance and especially with swings. I am only 7 years old and have it only two days so it is still hard for me, but I am practicing. Also this product is very nice colors and it feels nice to hold. I even got hit once and it didn't hurt because of the padding. I really like it

    The toy is fun, but you can easily slip. I had one....but the rubber cap (which isn't durable enough) fell off. I pogo-ed on cement and chipped a permanent tooth.... ... Read more
