Tomy Aqua Fun Toys Review and Competition
Monster absolutely loves bath time so we were delighted to be asked to take a look at two very different bath time toys from the Tomy Aqua Fun range.
The lucky little monster was sent the Tomy Aqua Fun Turtle Tots Bath Time Fun and the Tomy Aqua Fun Surfin’ Beaver to put through their pace and with a boy who loves water just as much as his swimming pool manager daddy I knew it wouldn’t be long before he was requesting a splash in the tub.
Whilst both of the colourful Tomy Aqua Fun Toys are designed to create endless fun in the bath tub each toy has a very different aim. The Turtle Tots bath toy is designed to aid learning through play whilst the Surfin’ Beaver is designed solely to emphasize the fun factor of bath time and make adults and children alike smile.
Tomy Aqua Fun Turtle Tots
New for summer 2013 the Tomy Aqua Fun Turtle Tots toy really has a lot of features to keep monsters aged 12 months plus entertained.
The Turtle bath toy’s features include 4 super cute mini turtle water squirters which can not only be used to drench mummy and daddy (thanks Monster) but can also be stuck onto any smooth surface such as the bath tub, tiles and glass shower screen. Now I never realised just how much fun this could be until I sat watching the little man sticking them all over the bathroom and giggling as he did so for a good ten minutes!
Lifting the top off the turtle’s shell reveals that his four colourful legs are a lot more than they first seem. Each colourful leg is in fact a water sprinklers and with a different amount and pattern of holes the water sprinkles out in lots of different way which kept the monster thorough entertained.
At the end of the each of the turtle’s legs there is different shape which has to be slotted into the correct place in the turtles base before you can pop the turtle back together- it’s exactly the same concept as a shape sorter and is great for learning both shapes and colour.
Monster has had so much fun with the Tomy Aqua Fun Turtle Tots toy that it is seriously hard to put into words how fab this bath time toy really is. From shape sorting to counting, problem solving and colour recognition this pretty bath toy certainly has plenty of educational value and with a price tag of just £14.99 you certainly get a lot for your money with this brilliant bath time toy.
Tomy Aqua Fun Surfin’Beaver
As I mentioned previously Tomy’s Surfin’ Beaver bath toy is certainly designed with the fun factor in mind. Aimed at children aged 12 months plus this plastic bath toy is extremely cute to look at and had the little man oohhh and ahhing the moment it came out of the box .
Featuring an easy to wind mechanism the Surfin’ Beever is designed to ‘swim’ across the top of the water using his small flapping tail whilst humming a very catch surf themed tune.
Monster loved winding up the noisy Surfin Beever’ although it did take us a couple of attempts before we realised that the only way the Surfin’ Beaver will move is if you ensure that the back end of the surf board (where his tail is) is slightly submerged in the water.
Admittedly the Tomy Aqua Fun Surfin’ Beaver didn’t swim quite as fast as I has imagined it would it, instead it kind of sauntered across the top of the water which was a little disappointing. This being said Monster was more than happy to push the Surfin’ Beaver around and it makes him giggle with glee each and every time the humming tune sounded.
With a price tag of £11.99 the Tomy Aqua Fun Surfin’ Beaver is a toy to make you smile rather than one which you can learn from but the little man had fun.
