Pocoyo Water Taxi for Bath Time Review and 14 days free access to Pocoyo World Premium Club Giveaway (Christmas Wish List 2010 )
What’s most toddler’s and children’s favorite time of the day???? Well…ok maybe it’s not every kids favorite part of the day but I know around our house bath time is always one of the best times of the day! I have always tried to make bath time as fun as possible so the one thing I always try to have on had is several of “Bug’s” favorite bath time toys and recently since he is getting older some of his “older” bath time toys aren’t really much fun for him anymore and he lost interest so when I had the opportunity to review the Pocoyo Water Taxi for bath time I was very excited since he watches Pocoyo just about daily on our local PBS channel and I haven’t seen any Pocoyo toys in any of our local stores!
About Pocoyo Water Taxi:
Pocoyo Bath Vehicle Set - Pocoyo is fun in the tub as well as on the rug! Vehicle floats on water! The set includes 3 characters from the show including: collectible scuba Pocoyo, Fred the Octopus and Fish!!
Pocoyo is an inquisitive and fun-loving little boy. He has insatiable curiosity, and lives in a world of limitless opportunities. Pocoyo and his friends capture the imagination of children in their animated series on television. The cast features lovable characters such as Elly, Pato and Loula. Children can watch, listen and interact, promoting creativity, self-awareness and self-confidence by learning through laughter.
We were sent the Pocoyo Water Taxi to review and I have to say that my little man couldn’t have been more excited when it arrived at our door! Since he is already quite a fan of Pocoyo and we haven’t been able to locate any Pocoyo toys around our local stores this was quite a treat for him and he immediately wanted to take a bath and give them a test run! I like that this 3 piece set is super simple and it doesn’t have any bells and whistles like lights or sounds, so I think it is a wonderful toy to excite his imagination and open a whole new world of play!
You can remove the Pocoyo figure from the starfish so that there are many different ways to play with these figures and they really do make bath time super fun! “Bug” has really enjoyed these toys during bath time every night and it’s made bath time a lot easier for Chad and I since “Bug” has some new toys he doesn’t hesitate to go jump right into the tub, our only complaint is that once he gets in and starts playing with Pocoyo and his friends it is sometime quite a fuss to get him to remove himself from the cold water after he has spent 30-45 minuets in the tub!
“Bug” don’t just limit his play of the Pocoyo Bath Taxi to the bath tub, there are several times that he will go get them from our toy tube in the bathroom and incorporate them in his everyday play and it’s so great to see his imagination growing and expanding so much!
Although the Pocoyo Water Taxi doesn’t come with all the bells and whistles of sounds and lights it has quickly became one of our favorite bath time accessories and like I mentioned it isn’t restricted to only bath time, it has also become a part of his everyday play. I feel like that the toys that are included in the bath set are high quality and will last much longer than some of the more expensive high tech bath toys that are available on the market not to mention they are available at a great price of only $9.99 and trust me it is well worth the money!
If you have a little one on your shopping list this holiday season I totally recommend the Pocoyo Water Taxi and I am very sure it would make a wonderful stocking stuffer as well!
To purchase the Pocoyo Water Taxi visit the Toys “R’ Us website!
I don’t have another Pocoyo Water Taxi to giveaway today but I do have the opportunity to offer one of my readers 14 days free access to Pocoyo World Premium Club.
