Editorial Review

This is a happy, noisy toy that should amuse most toddlers. Everything that can be touched reacts in some way, from a trombone-playing frog to a book that sings the alphabet. Our favorite is the colored keyboard that sings each color you press. The tabletop can be placed on the floor for those still in the crawling phase, or can sit on the included legs for a sturdy surface and leaning spot for little ones who are new to walking. If there is any fault with the Learning Table, it may be that it has too many features: each element of the table reacts in two different ways, depending on whether it's in Learn Mode or Music Mode. (Modes are switched by flipping the page of the book mounted in the center of the table.) Though this means more fun stuff for kids to hear, the mode concept is not one that they can be expected to understand, and the effect of the toy's inconsistent reactions is likely to be confusion. --David Stoesz ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money!
Bought this for my daughter at about 6 mos and she just turned one. She still plays with it! It is well worth the money. Also, it is fun to put little goodies in the open/close compartment. I put cheerios in there and she loves it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great toy!
This is a must! This was given to my daughter before she could walk. Not only did we take the legs off so she can play with it while sitting up, but this toy helped her pull up! We love this toy! She is a toddler now and still enjoys it and I am sure when our newborn gets older she will enjoy it the same. ***We use to put surprises in the little purple compartment!

5-0 out of 5 stars Love this!!!!!
Wow!! We got this for Christmas for our 4 month old and she loved it from day 1!! She loved holding herself up and standing by it and playing with it. I thought that there didn't look like very many activities but when you turn the page in the middle it makes all the gadgets do new things. Our daughter is now 1 and still plays with it all day. My husband has even caught me playing with it and singing along a few times!! I love it too!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great For Learning to Walk
I bought this for my son when he was first starting to crawl. After I bought it he was pulling up on it and cruising/ walking around it at 7 months. He interacts with it by learning how to open the little purple lid, how to press, push, pull and how to flip the page. It is very heavy and he can push it and bang as hard as he can and it will not flip. It is also very durable, although, the purple lid can be pulled off but it is safe and it snaps back on easily. It is funny because my son cannot stand for me to reattach it because the first thing that he does is pull it back off. Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best table toy ever!
My kids and any other kids that come to my home LOVE this toy. It's the first thing they got to. We've had ours for about 2 years now and when ever any one I know have a baby I get this for them as their Happy six months old gift! This is a MUST have for any kid! ... Read more

My son recieved this toy for christmas when he was 2 years only. I was amazed to see how much he learned from the songs that the toy plays with each letter. He also learned to sing his abc's from this toy. I would recommend this toy to anyone who wants to give their child a head start in learning

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Educational Toy
My niece learned the whole alphabet and all the sounds the letters make before she was two years old with this toy. She absolutely loves it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Gift
Best of all, they're too big to get kicked under the fridge!! Fun songs, great volume control, interesting for many ages.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Toy
I bought this for my daughters first birthday,she's 2 now and still playing with it, she learned the alphabet,colors like nothing she runs/walks around the house singing her abc's over and over, this is honestly the best educational fun toy I spent money on and she has fun learning.

Most favorite toy in the whole house!
My son received this as a Christmas present just before he turned one year old - it has been a hit ever since! Every day the animals find their way all over the house and every night we put them back in their places & listen to the sounds they each make! He has learned to identify each of the animals, their sounds, and that everything has its own place. This is the best toy!

Not what I expected from Fisher Price...
My son received this farm as a gift. It is cute, but he doesn't seem as interested in it as I thought he would be. Also, shortly after he received it, a small piece broke off the bottom of the windmill - just the right size to be a serious choking hazard. I really didn't expect this from a Fisher Price toy. I took the windmill away, and he still plays with the rest of it.


5-0 out of 5 stars Great Toy
Our daughter loves the little people toys! Especially the Farm! We started buying little people for her on her first birthday and she still plays with them now that she is over 3. This is a great gender neutral toy for children to enjoy! I even bought this for our nephew who lives 2 states away. We were not certain what kinds of toys he would play with and what kinds of toys he already had. It ended up being a good gamble. He really enjoyed this toy and now he has many more pieces his parent bought for him since they found out he enjoyed this so well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for language development
I am a speech pathologist working with birth to 5 yrs old. This toy is a favorite with all of my clients and has served years of duty, being transported from car to home to car to classroom almost every day. I bought it several years ago though and the sounds worked only for a few months, even when i changed the batteries... not sure exactly what happened, but I thought Fisher Price would have been slightly more durable mechanically. I am not heart broken tho because the songs were a little too much for me- they kept goign off during transport. Other than that, I love it and the kids love waking the farmer up and having the farmer kick the dirty animals out of his bed: "Get out of my bed you muddy pig!" ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good First Dollhouse
I like this product as a little girls first dollhouse. My daughter has played with it several times over the last year. We have added to her set by getting her the Garage for all of her cars and she plays with that alot, too. When I was a little girl, I played with my Little People Dollhouse for hours at a time and now watching my daughter play with her interactive sounds dollhouse is an enjoyable experience. I recommend this product to parents.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love It!
My daughters absolutley love this little doll house. My 3 1/2 year old will play with it for a very long time. My 21 month old also enjoys moving the little people in and out the door and making the phone "ring" and the other sounds go. All the Little People toys have been a big hit in our house.

5-0 out of 5 stars great for little ones
Any toy which sparks the imagination and encourages role play is educational. Education is not all ABC's.
This is a great toy all around and is very durable. My girls (2 years old) love it and play with it every day.

5-0 out of 5 stars One HUGE Problem...
My mom bought this toy for my one year old daughter, and although I agree with the other reviewers that this toy is fun and the sounds that it makes are really cool, I do see a big flaw that Fisher Price must correct. WHY is the mom of the house holding a baby bottle and has a burp cloth over her shoulder and the dad has a permanent cell phone in his hand?!?!?!!? I am not a feminist by any stretch of the imagination but I think it is just stupid that the designers of this toy felt the need to imprint a stereotype on the little people characters! Why isn't the DAD holding a bottle? Is he too busy on the phone with his clients to help with the baby? What happens when mom goes back to work and she has a burp cloth stuck on her shoulder? It might be hard to trade stocks on Wall Street when you have a bottle permanently affixed to your hand. Why have them holding anything? I think that if I was a kid, I would be bummed that these characters are forever stuck inhabiting the stereotypic roles that we are so trying to dispel!

5-0 out of 5 stars Nothing to rave about!
Although I'm a great fan of Little People toys, this is our least favorite one. It doesn't have the educational value that the farm and the zoo have. It's a cute toy and hopefully my daughter will play with it more as she gets older (she's 15 months). She tends to become bored with this toy, unlike the farm and the zoo. This set only comes with a mother, a father, and a baby, along with some furniture and accessories. The phone rings, the toilet flushes, the popcorn pops, etc. but it doesn't make up for general lack of play value. I recommend this toy if you already have the other Little People toys and you want to add to your collection. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars uneven structure to put together
First of all I will never shop online at Our house was ordered by my mother for my son's birthday on september 21st. And we all hoped it would come by october 2nd, but we got it on october 15th. Needless to say how child was upset by waiting for it. When it came, at first, I was trying to put it together by myself, and I would be able to do it if the structure made properly and even. So I had to wait for my husband to put it together. We finaly did, but we needed to put some extra screws for that house to be safe to play with.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT PLAYHOUSE!!!
We bought this playhouse for our daughter and she LOVED it! So did the other kids that come over to play! It has a back escape hatch, a kitchen, and a little table set mounted on the outside along with a phone! When I take my daughter outside this is the first thing she goes to! Terrific Playhouse! We liked it over the rest and still do! No regrets!

5-0 out of 5 stars Preschool Use
I purchased the cottage last summer for my 17 preschoolers and put it together in about an hour with the help of a teenager. (I don't know how some of you did it in 10-15 minutes! It took that long or more to get it out of the huge box!) The children love it but I do not like the way the sink fills with water everytime it rains here in Seattle. (A design flaw). I have also had to chase a few children off the roof after they have climbed up on it by stepping onto the chairs and exterior table. (One bottom corner came unhitched under the weight of one tiny four year-old and can't be fixed unless we take the entire cottage apart.) We finally brought the pink plastic phone indoors as the children would drop it in the play yard or cottage sink and I'd have to go retrieve it and dry the phone out. (The phone rings, "talks," etc., and can't handle being wet.) I do love the natural colors and have purchased the small climber. I plan to purchase the picnic table next. Thank you Step2 for the more natural colors! I am soooo tired of looking at bright orange, red, blue and green plasic yard toys. The pastel colors from Little Tykes was a good step but this is even better.

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT!!!
I bought this for my son because it didn't look girlish. He LOVES it! It was pretty easy to put together if you read the directions (don't ask a man for help)! I plan on purchasing the picnic table and the climber to go with it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Buy!
We just purchased this playhouse for my 19 month old daughter. She absolutely loves playing in it. I love the fact that my daughter, myself and our 85 pound dog can all fit inside it and play. It was a breeze to put together and also looks great in the backyard. We also bought the picnic table that matches and she loves to sit at it to eat, colour etc. I highly recommend these products - money well spent! ... 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

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

3-0 out of 5 stars Has its flaws
My daughter really enjoys the ball but it has a few flaws: one, when you have it on the music function, you can play different tunes by pressing the letters. It carries its own tune if you roll it. But if she presses the letters for a song -- and moves it even slightly -- her tune stops and the "stock song" comes on. On the alphabet function, if she doesn't roll it again fast enough, the alphabet keeps starting over instead of letter her play the whole song.
For parents, the musical tones can really get on your nerves.

3-0 out of 5 stars A fun, sturdy toy
A great toy. It comes out of its stand and rolls like a ball, or on its stand it spins. When turned on, it does letters, phonic sounds and music. Has a volume control (YEAH!!) and my 14 month old hasn't get tired of hearing it talk to her! She quickly figured out how to work it, as you don't have to push the buttons too hard, and spinning or rolling it gently starts it singing too. Great bright colors, and it washes off easily.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fun for a range of ages
My then 3 month old son received this for christmas. I would sit with him on my lap and we would play with this and it would capture his attention for quite awhile. Now that he's older, he's spinning that ball like crazy and when i take it off the stand he pushes it around and crawls after it. The combo of lights and songs really captures him. My 5 and 3 yr old both like to play with it too, they sing along with the alphabet and like all the songs. Very good toy. I would definately recommend it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Educational and Fun Toy
My daughter recieved this toy as a gift from Santa. She was 9 months old at the time and really enjoyed it. She is now 15 months old and still plays with it but not as much. She loves to push the letters and hear the different sounds. She also LOVES the music. All in all it is a good toy and well worth the money.

Editorial Review

If you cross a red car with a plastic boat and combine the result withone of those big Victorian baby carriages, you get this entirely novel mode oftot transportation. This little car--32 inches long by 18 inches wide, andriding on 7-inch plastic wheels--has an integral plastic seat 9 inches off theground and can be powered by two little feet through the hole in the floor.Alternatively, raise the bandshell-style yellow nylon hood and push yourpreschooler around using the 38-inch-high metal handle that sticks up frombehind. The "cockpit" is fully equipped with steering wheel, beeping "horn," anignition key that turns, a gear shift, and various battery-powered soundeffects. Adult assembly is required. --Richard Farr ...

My daughter got this on her 1st. birthday.
We both love it, and we get alot of attention and smiles as we walk around the neighborhood.
It steers nicely, like the canopy on the sunny days.
Nice buy, you'll get a big, "WWWWOOOOOOOOWWWW!!!"

Seatbelt suggestion.......
My son received this car as a first birthday present from his grandparents. It's adorable, and is a great alternative to the traditional Cozy Coupe, which is a little too big for younger toddlers. He loves the sounds, the steering wheel, and likes to pull the canopy top up. The car is narrow enough to drive all over our small ranch home -- it goes through doorways and our baby gate very well. As a taller mommy, I appreciated that the handle on the back can be height adjusted (three or four height settings, I'm not sure which)-- it makes pushing the toy much easier when you don't have to hunch over to do it!
The only concern I have about this car is the lack of a seatbelt. My son attempted to stand up and nearly fell out of the car (thankfully on carpet). Before I dared take him outside in the car, I knew that something had to be done to secure him into the seat. Not wanting to damage the toy too severely, I surfed the Little Tikes website for some kind of replacement seat belt that I could adapt for use with this toy. There is a replacement belt for the "toddler high back swing" available for just a few dollars. After a trip to Toys R Us to confirm that the belt could actually work on the Cozy Convertible, I order the belt (and a spare). I drilled two small slats on either side of the seat, carefully removed the uneven edges with a utility knife, and PRESTO! installed the seat belt. Because the belt is the type that doesn't have to loop all of the way around the back, it was very easy to install, and it looks just like it was always meant to be there. (The advantage of buying the Little Tikes belt is that it's yellow and blue, just like the trim on the car). I probably won't remove the belt later...maybe we can use it as a seat belt safety lesson ("Don't ride in the car unless your belt is fastened").
My son can now enjoy his "car rides" and mommy can enjoy them too, now that I know my little daredevil is securely fastened. Overall, this is a great toy for little ones.

We purchased the convertable car for our 2 year old and decided to put it together a little earlier than his upcomming birthday. Good for us! The first wheel we inserted was defective (was not able to secure to toy). The car wobbled as it moved. No seatbelt was another surprise. The plastic wheels are noisy, and damaged imediatly after riding over rocks (the rocks stick to the plastic; making for a much shorter life of the tire) The cute convertable shield is a HUGE blind spot for parents pushing the car. Dangerous. Should be a plastic mirror in the front for better safety. So many improvements are needed for this. Too bad. It was a cute looking little car. We're returning it for a rubber-wheeled wagon.

Missing a seat belt
I recently purchased a Deluxe Cozy ConvertibleĀ™ Car for my son and was surprised to find it did not have a seat belt. I didn't think this would be a big issue because he seemed to love it and all of the bells and whistles kept him busy. He loved it and so did all of the neighborhood kids. During our fourth walk, he started fussing. The top was up so I couldn't see him. Before I could look in to check him, I ran over the yellow bottom of the car. He was gripping the inside with his hands and feet. His butt was on the sidewalk. I can't imagine what could have happened if he wasn't hanging on for dear life. I don't know if the bottom was in right at the start of our walk, but a seat belt probably would have helped. Since our accident, I have tied a rope from one side to the other in the car and he still loves to ride in it. It is a good toy. It just needs a seat belt. He is also at the stage where he tries to climb out if he sits still for too long. If this has happened to anyone else, please e-mail Little Tikes. Honestly, this would be a perfect car if it had a seat belt.

Baby loves it--but needs a seatbelt!
My 13 1/2 month old received this for his 1st birthday abd absolutely loves being pushed around in it. The car is absolutely adorable, it is quite durable as I have taken it several times on a 3-mile walk with the baby and he has a constant smile being driven around in it.

My only concern about the vehicle is that it does not have a seat belt thus sometimes the baby leans over to touch the wheels of the car when in motion which can make any parent nervous, thus you have to stop until he sits back up, etc. ... Read more

Finally something that will keep my ADHD son occupied!
It has been a constant battle to find something my 11 year old will play with by himself other than video games. We bought this yesterday, and he has already played with it for several hours! He likes building the ideas in the book and also making his own creations. The recommended age listed here is 6-10 years, but on the packing of the box the ages are 7-14 years. There are 3 skill levels - Friendly Challenge, Moderate Challenge, and Greater Challenge. The instruction book has 4 Friendly models, 9 Moderate models, and 17 Greater models. At 11 years old, the Friendly models are a little too easy for him, and the Greater models are a bit challenging without adult help (I'm sure he'll get better at it in no time though), but the Moderate models are perfect for him. He has an incredibly short attention span, but he has been content to work on this longer than he ever has with anything else, so I hope this will spill over into other areas of his life, especially school.

Kids and Parents both will love these!!!!!
My children are 9 and 7. We have had K'nex for 3 years now and my kids are still playing with them!!! Whenever my neices and nephews come over the first toys out are the K'nex. These toys are great for both boys and girls. They spark children's imagination and keep them busy for hours. I honestly was skeptical when I first bought them. I thought they would be like a puzzle, use them once and then toss them aside. Boy was I wrong. Whenever my boys go shopping with me they have to look at the new K'nex to see what they don't have. I highly recommend them. But please be wary when you have babies. The pieces are small and a baby can choke on them. Other than that they are a great family bonding toy. Parents, you can even play with them too. They are highly addictive.

Young children will get the hang of hanging with this cute swing from Little Tikes. Its blue plastic body sports sturdy yellow shoulder straps and a red T-bar to keep babies and toddlers safe; the T-bar can be removed for older kids. Parents should make sure not to hang the swing above concrete or another hard surface, and they should check that the support structure is secure. (The instructions don't specify how to attach the swing to the support.) The swing holds a maximum weight of 50 pounds. --Andy Boynton ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Entirely Crazy About This One
We've had this swing for three years and it finally broke. I've been anticipating the break from day one. One of the locks on the bar finally snapped off. They're the hardest things to get open once your child is in the swing. Both of my kids loved it though. My major complaint is the straps that attach to the swingset. They were too long and no matter how many times we adjusted them, the swing always went crooked. Looking for a DIFFERENT swing now for my almost two year old son.

Great swing!
There were 4 swings at the store to choose from so it was a hard choice! I liked the buckles on this swing though. They are hard to undo but that makes me happy beacuse there is no way the baby can undo them. The t-strap is very secure and keeps our baby in tightly! He loves swinging in it!!I would recommend this to anyone!

A Great Swing
My daughter loves this swing! She's 18mos and prefers this to a different toddler swing we had bought for her. This buckles securely and there is no worry of them falling out. Our 2.5 mo old daughter will be using this swing as well. This is very durable; we have it on the swingset and it, of course, stays outside year round. No complaints.

Excellent Swing Compared to other swings
I picked this swing out for my 20 month old daughter. I loved the fact you didn't have any thing to fall down and pinch fingers like the swings with the t- bar that slides up on the ropes. Anna likes the fact that she can climb in the swing herself. I like that feature as well, it saves my back and arms from lifting. She even likes to buckle herself in. The buckles were tight at first but have loosen up some with use. Anna is much more comfortable in this swing than the giant bucket swing down at our park. She feels like a big girl getting in and out without Mom or Dad having to pick her up. She also likes to give her bear a ride buckled in of course.

My son's giggle swing
My son is 7 months old and we tried this at a Farm that sees many kids and they had this swing. That is a good sign, and it was holding up just great there.
It was his first swing ride and his just laughed and smiled with joy. I really love how you don't have to lift them WAY above your head to get them out. The t-bar just flips down out of the way. The straps are a little hard to press in to undo, but no big deal. I love how it leans back so he's very secure and safe in it. We are getting one for our house now. ... Read more

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

There's nothing like playing with a huge pile of colorful plastic balls: they're perfect for tossing, kicking, pushing around, or hiding underneath. This inflatable fire engine comes with 75 air-filled, soft flex balls. Pour them into the rectangular inflatable toy and it becomes an instant play area for kids. Made of heavy-duty vinyl, this bright red truck can be used inside or outdoors. The sides have round crawl-through holes, and the back area is open, so young firefighters can imagine standing up and hanging on while the driver uses the pretend steering wheel to speed to the rescue. Cool accessories include a red fireman's hat and a plastic yellow pump action "hose" that shoots one plastic ball at a time and can be handheld or attached to the fire engine's side. The balls arrive already inflated but the fire engine does not. A repair patch kit is also included. --Pam Lauer ... Read more

A lot of fun for my 12-month-old twins
My twins got this for their first birthday and love it! They crawl in and out of the holes and play peek-a-boo with each other. Its a great toy!

Lots of Fun - Less on Quality...
We purchased the fire truck pit for my then 11 month old son for Christmas. It took him a couple of days to adjust to it (it is quite large!) but he soon loved it! I agree with the other comment about not coming with enough balls and the few balls that it does come with easily roll out of the crawl in holes when being used. Our son (and his father) loved playing with the pump ball thrower thingy. They played with it so much that the plastic got weak and broke off at the folds after a couple of mohts. Unfortunatly now after a group playdate with a few other 13 month olds, the side of the firetruck is not holding air. We can not find the hole anywhere either. It was a lot of fun. But now a waste of money after only a few months.

Fun - but a few design flaws
First, I had to buy two hundred more balls! And, btw, you can get them cheaper at target! My 22 month son enjoys his firetruck. He loves the hose that shoots the balls. I bought it when he was 17 mos. I thought he would play with it at more at first, but he has gradually started playing with it more and more.

Cons? First, we are about to move and I DREAD blowing it up again! It's huge - I am not sure WHERE I will put it in my new house! But, really, the only problem is that the 'port holes' are too low. I wish they were higher so the balls wouldn't go all over the place when he plays in it! I would prefer a ball pit that is deeper.

made my childs first word
i love this and will be a permanet memeber to our house!. my kid said it was cubby. he just snuggled and said cubby in a cute sqeakey voice! i love this and you should buy it too. and the dobule chameber pump is a good idea unless you are a hobo without a job

I didn't buy this exact product for my daughter(I bought the corn popper model, but has the same qualities). She loves to play with all the balls and crawl in and out of the tunnels, but the thing won't stay inflated and it is so hard to inflate in the first place. I have checked for leaks, but so far I haven't found one. I have to have 4 different people to help me blow it up every other week, but other than that my daughter loves to get in it and throw all the balls out and all of the other kids that come over love to play in it too. ...

This pretend cash register may seem like all fun and games to your little one but is actually teaching him coin and money values, coin identification, numbers, counting, and quantities. The register comes with a stack of play pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters, all encased in easy-to-handle plastic chips. In explore mode, the smart coin reader on the register identifies all coins as kids drop them in, teaching their name and value. Four additional price tags represent larger monetary values and as kids slide price tags over the flashing scanner or drop coins in the register, they learn how to add values together and make totals. Kids can also set the register to price check mode to play a fun game that teaches number identification. Final checkout reinforces numbers, coins, and coin combinations once again and plays a fun song when the register opens. Throughout playtime, kids will receive encouragement and requests to keep playing from the LeapFrog's friendly voice. --Cristina Vaamonde ... Read more

Fun toy but hard keep up with!
I love this toy becouse it teaches my boys about money. The only thing I don't like is that the money always gets stuck in the slot. It does have an opening to get the money out, but you need a screwdriver. So every time they put the money in to quickly after another, I have to go find my hand screwdriver. My boys have a great time playing with this cash register. If this one ever broke, I would go out and by another one. It is the best on I have found.

The best cash register yet!
Ever since my kids got this for Christmas last year they have not quite playing with it. Plus I think it's great because it interacts with out leap frog shopping cart. my kids play for hours with it, a great toy!

Excellent for fun and learning!
We gave this cash register to our 4 yr. old and 2 yr. old last Christmas. It has since been used for countless games of "Store" and is still working and looking great (5 months later). As a parent and home educator, my favorite feature is the coins, which are made to resemble actual coins, but are surrounded by color-coded plastic rings to help children learn to identify the correct amounts. The price scanners are another neat, unique function, as the kids can customize price amounts for their store "merchandise."

My children remain interested in this toy, partially because cash registers just add to the fun of pretend play, and perhaps partially due to the four different modes of play. I appreciate the volume control button, too!

I can understand the complaint about coins getting stuck, but we have never had any real problems with this. They really only get jammed if a child loads too many coins in the slot at once. Our children have learned to remove the coins after inserting just a few.

Bottom line: I highly recommend this toy if you are looking for a high-quality cash register, or just an exciting means of learning math concepts.

Jams unacceptably
We have most of leapfrog's other products, they are usually great. This toy, however, has a product defect. The problem is that the coins jam both internally (there is an afterthought "door" secured with a screw to access internal jams) as well as externally in the coin return tray. When I say "Jams" I mean "Jams almost immediately". As in "within 30 seconds of play". To remove the jam you need a screwdriver and knife - not what you want you use around toddlers. Children cannot "unjam the toy". Unacceptable. If they can fix this issue, it will be an outstanding toy as it is compatible with their shopping cart (highly recommended) as well. It is one of the favorites at playgroup, which is a contributing factor to it jamming (several hands playing with it at once).

After speaking with Leapfrog, customers that own this toy and are experiencing jamming should register their product with leapfrog so that they may be contacted when a fix is available for the problem. Leapfrog is aware of the issue.

1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Leapfrog product ever
We have most of leapfrog's other products, most are great. This toy, however is awful. The main problem is that the coins jam both internally (there is an afterthought "door" secured with a screw to access internal jams) as well as externally in the coin return tray. When I say "Jams" I mean "Jams almost immediately". As in "within 30 seconds of play". To remove the jam you need a screwdriver and knife - not what you want you use around toddlers. Children cannot "unjam the toy". Totally unacceptable.

This problem brought to light a reprehensible policy of Leapfrog - they won't take any returns or exchanges for non-manufacturing defects. This was bought as a gift for my daughter, it was purchased in a distant city, and we cannot return the product to the retailer.

Rotten toy, and a rotten custom service attitude - last time I will give this company my money... ... Read more

Watch out Emeril! Future Gourmet Chef at work!
We got this for our daughter's 2nd birthday after reading ALL the reviews, and even wrote to Step 2 FIRST to inquire about some common problems. The dishrack HAS been fixed and the dishes don't fall out. The instructions don't seem to be in a logical order: we put the decals on FIRST while the pieces are easier to get to(which are very forgiving: you can remove if not lined up right!); make SURE you have batteries (12 AA for the Dream kitchen); put spindles and door/drawer knobs on before assembling big pieces together. Just seems to make more sense that way. Took about an hour for the 2 of us to assemble. Some holes are NOT drilled, so have a drill on hand. The fridge door is fine on ours, but the keypad next to the microwave is not quite centered, so the microwave door catches on it and is hard to open and close. Maybe can remedy by redrilling the top hole for keypad. Also like the idea of taping a string behind keypad for ease of removing to change batteries.

Lots of FUN sounds and "boiling/sizzling" sounds also stop on their own after about a minute. Daughter LOVES it so far! Well Worth the money, but shop around: found $15 difference in shipping cost from here to VERY durable: 20lb cat jumped up on it - didn't tip or move at all! After the assembly, you'll love it! Hope/expect to have many years of fun play out of it!

The Best Kitchen Out There
My daughter received this kitchen for Christmas when she was
1 1\2. I was worried she wouldn't be interested in it, i thought maybe she was a little young, but she started to play with it right away, and hasn't stopped since. Everyday she is cooking Mommy something. It wasn't as hard to put together as i thought, and it is very durable. My daughter plays rough, and not one thing is broken or cracked. My only regret for this kitchen is it doesn't have a lot of counterspace. Ever since she got it, everyone wants to buy her blenders, and coffepots, and toasters, but there is no room to put it in her kitchen. Also my daughter wishes the faucet made noise. it is a great value for the money as well. It's is the only kitchen I could find that wasn't pink & purple, and I plan to have a boy eventually, and I try to buy larger toy items that can be used by either a girl ot a boy. This is a GREAT value, and anyone in the market for a kid's kitchen should definitely purchase this one.

Well worth the money!
I bought this for my daughter's 2nd birthday and she loves it. It keeps her occupied like no other toy she has. She loves to help me in the kitchen and now she has her own, her size. I read other reviews about this product and I didn't have any of the problems other people say they did. It was easy to put together, I do, however, recommend using an electric screwdriver, it'll go much faster that way. My daughter thinks the overhead light is the coolest thing ever and no worries, it shuts itself off within minutes if they forget to. So no wasting batteries. This kitchen is well worth the money I paid for it and has all the storage space they could need for thier dishes and food. My only complaint, actually it's more my daughters, is that she wishes the faucet made noise like everything else does.
Anyway, all the doors fit right and it is sturdy. My advice is just take your time assembling it. I'd say it took me about an hour to put it all together, decals and all.

My 3 yaer ols son recieved this as a gift for his 3rd birthday. He has played with it everyday since he got it. Its big and has lots of things to do. And I LOVE that it is the only kitchen out there that is not pink and purple. It suits either a boy or a girl. It was very easy to put together and you dont have to worry about it tipping over onto anyone. The bottm is heavy enough to support the wieght on the top. The light has an automatic shut off, which is a great feature. Keeps the batteries from dieing so fast from little ones forgetting to turn it off.

Stand out in a crowd
My son just got this 2 days ago. I had to put it together before he could use it. It was not difficult at all. In no time, my son was riding his new vehicle. He thought that it was great. He is average to a bit small for his age (4 1/2 years old), but had no problem reaching the pedals. He loves the fact that he can drive it like his daddy drive's his car. My son is the only one in his neighborhood with a car like this and likes to show it off whenever he can. The car looks as if it is quite duable, and should last for many years to come.

Great toy
Our 3.5 year old son loves it. He was able to learn how to operate it within one day and likes riding it. There is no risk of it tipping over (as we had seen with his trike) and he enjoys the control he has riding the vehicle. We also love the fact that he has to use the pedals to ride it which gives him a chance to utilize the endless amount of energy he seems to have.

Would definately recommend it to another child. One point weakness though:
The front steering is not protected - he hig a concrete step causing the steering bar to pop out - no problem - it could be pushed back and he could continue to ride it without problems.

We bought this for our son for Christmas when he was 6. He wanted one of those electric Jeep's. One major reason we decided to NOT go with the Jeep was that at the time we lived upstairs and had no where to keep it and no desire to haul it up and down stairs every day. The next best reason was that we knew he would outgrow it likely within a year. When we saw the Kettcars they looked so cool, light and affordable! Christmas morning he saw it and cared little about anything else! To this day, it is his favorite outside toy! He is 8 now and nearly ready for the next size up, so we will probably get him one this Christmas, which he really wants, especially since the larger models have actual rubber tires, and he likes to pretend he is a mechanic. I would highly recommend this! Another thing...when we go to the park, he is the center of attention, which makes him feel good and I am happy to say that he is wonderful about sharing turns with other kids.

Well what is there to say but this is the greatest toy ever created. We found this car in my friend (Degos) garage. As soon as we saw it we fell in love. First we just went down hills with it but that wasnt enough. We hooked it up to the back of my tractor and went over huge inclines with it. Then we rode it down a hill into my dog house. Let me say that was the high point of my ket carting. Then we were looking for new extents so we drove off the roof of my garage with it which resulted in a broken arm and a bruised rectum. Finally we took it down a steep off road hill and tried 2 land on a parking lot and ride down the hill on the parking lot. This was the end of the ket cart. We tried fixing it but nothing seemed to work. Now we are at school raising money for the ket cart releif fund which is doing pretty well all we need is 32 more dollars. Overall this is a great toy and is suitable for all ages.

We bought this for our then 4 year old son 2 years ago for Christmas. He has loved every minute of it since then. He has an easy time peddling, steering, and stopping. We have adjusted the seat to accomodate his growth 2 times and have never had any complaints! I would highly reccomemend this toy in addition to ride-on toys you might already own. GREAT BOREDOM BUSTER! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Often the best way to get the housework done is to have your children working by your side.When it's time to vacuum, preschoolers can use this toy Hoover right alongside an adult using a realvacuum cleaner. Sized for preschoolers, the navy and black, hard plastic vacuum stands 26.25 inches highand has adjustable levers in front, working lights, and a realistic motor sound. There's a flexible black hoseon one side and three yellow plastic attachments inside a storage compartment with a clear door. Thoughthe Hoover is fairly sturdy, the door isn't the most durable part of it; after a while it may begin to fall open,making the attachments fall on the floor. There's also a removable cloth dust bag inside, although thesuction action is so slight that very little dirt is actually collected. Four C batteries are required (notincluded). --Marcie Bovetz ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A hit for little helpers
My son turned two almost two months ago, and while this toy is recommended for ages 3-6, I think it can be appropriate for some two year olds as well.

My son decided about a month ago that he wanted to assist his daddy and brothers with the vacuuming, and he'd grab the handle along with them and "help." So after some consideration, I got him this toy.

It arrived today, and as soon as I got the batteries in it, my son was off and running. He used it for an hour and a half straight, and his little head was all sweaty from "working" so hard! It was very cute.

My only suggestion is that you leave on the tape holding the accessories door on. If they don't want to play with them, these just fall out and get to be a real annoyance.

Since we have only had the toy today, I can't say how long it will last, but for now it's a HUGE hit.

Wonderful Toy
We bought this vacuum for our 14 month-old son who was so afraid of the real vacuum that just bringing it out of the broom closet resulted in pointing and sounds of concern. Actually running the real vacuum resulted in tears and screaming. However, after inital concern and positive reinforcement (kisses, 'yeah, it's your own vacuum', and cuddles) by us, our son is now keen on using his own vacuum as well as less concered about the real thing. He loves to open/close the cover on his vacuum, take out the on-board tools and put them on/off the hose attachment, and push the vacuum around making vacuum sounds ('brrrr'). We're thrilled with the realistic appearance of this toy. The only concern is that the cover for the on-board tools is not very securly attached and often requires a parent's assistance to put it back on. Overall, this is a fantastic toy with numerous fun and developmental opportunities.

Best Toy Investment I EVER Made!!!
I decided to purchase a toy vacuum for my son two years ago when he almost pushed mine down the stairs. I had no idea that he would enjoy it so much! Like I said, I purchased this two years ago, and he plays with it to this day. During the first three or four weeks he would not leave the house without it, and thankfully the obsession slowly wore off. Now, he takes it out when I vacuum and follows behind me. This vacuum has also gone down the stairs about a hundred times and still keeps on going! I have not changed the battery for the motor sounds and it still works, but occasionally it will cut out, but only after extended use. This is probably an indicator that the battery should be changed, but I refuse to until it stops working all together! After two years of hard use I would have to say that this has held up well. The hose did break in a minor way and I was able to fix it, but when it did it again, I just took it off. (He never used that part anyway.) BOY OR GIRL I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS ITEM. I think it is a great way to teach good cleaning habits and an even better way to give yourself a break and relax for awhile! A+++++++

Vacum Freak
My kid (21 Months) is just obssessed with Vacums and he has been like that for a while, he would take vacum parts from our regular vacum and play with them and throw a fit when we would take it away. Recently he was at someones house and he took over the toy vacum and wouldn't let it go, so thats when i decided to get him this Hoover, and he is just obssessed with it.

I wonder what it is that makes these kids obssessed with Vacums ?
I wonder if there is any research out there or someone can look into this further.

If your child loves when you vacuum, get this toy!
I bought this toy vacuum for my 17 month old son who always loved it when we would vacuum. When the toy arrived in the mail, my son played with it nonstop for over an hour. We had to hide it so he would come in and eat dinner! He loves playing with his vacuum and there's nothing cuter than watching him vacuum the rugs in our house with this realistic looking mini Hoover! I have only two minor complaints about this item. First, the "filter" on the side keeps unlatching, but it's really just a minor issue and doesn't affect the fun of this toy one bit! Also, the vacuum often locks in the upright position and my son can't unlock it, becuase he is too young to figure out the release. But this toy is recommened for a child a bit older, and that is probably why. Nonetheless, he still loves this vacuum. ... Read more
