If you are a regular Hip Little One reader you may remember the fabulous Toot-Toot Drivers toys I wrote about back in July. Fast forward four months and these clever little cars are still being driven around the house, in fact they are such a hit we have expanded our fleet since then with several other fun vehicles.
Toy specialist VTech has also added to their Toot-Toot family with two exciting new ranges that toddlers and pre-schoolers will love, just in time for the gift-giving season:
Like all Toot-Toot designs the adorable Toot-Toot Animals (RRP $11.95, ages 1-5) are created with little people in mind: They have bright, attractive colours and lights, play fun sounds and songs, can ride around on wheels and their compact shape makes them easy to hold for small hands. I think they are a perfect size and price for your child’s Christmas stocking. Bonus: Every animal teaches the first letter of its name, what a cute introduction to the alphabet.
Of course the colourful animals are great fun on their own, but the special Toot-Toot Animals Playsets really bring them to life. Fitted with VTech’s unique SmartPoint™ technology each of your Toot-Toot animals is recognised as it passes the clever SmartPoint locations, activating a range of sounds, songs, melodies and phrases.
The result is a fantastic interactive play scene that allows young children to learn whilst having fun and it will keep them entertained for hours. By connecting the track pieces you can even link the different Playsets together and grow your animal world. From a friendly Farm to an adventurous Safari Park or playful Tree House, these animals are never short of new things to do and discover.
If your little one can’t get enough of Toot-Toot play you can now continue the fun at bath time with the brand new Toot-Toot Splash (RRP $16.95, ages 1-5) arrivals. These cool sea animals and water vehicles are guaranteed to make the daily wash the highlight of your child’s day with catchy songs, sounds, phrases and lights. Being waterproof all Toot-Toot Splash toys can safely be enjoyed both in and out of the tub, how awesome is that?
VTech toys are available at major department stores and independent toy retailers across Australia.
