This summer at Blogger Bash NYC, lots of neat toys came out that were wonderful for my girls! Here is a favorite of my kids from Wicked Cool Toys – Wild Kratts!
Wild Kratts Toy Sets
One of the great brands that I met this summer at Blogger Bash was Wicked Cool Toys. Here is a selection of some of the toys they sent that fit my kids to a “T”!
What really excited me was that they make toys for the show, “Wild Kratts.” At the end of last school year, we changed the PBS channel (I was really sick of Cat in the Hat and Curious George) and started watching this much more age-appropriate and educational show in the morning. What surprised me was that even Zoe was hooked! It’s about 2 adult brothers who explore and research different animals. They shift from live action into the cartoon, where they teach kids about animals by taking on their “creature power,” like speed for the cheetah or night vision for an owl.
So when I got the chance to review these toys, I thought, “perfect for Zoe!” Unlike other shows that Amelia likes, Zoe really took to this one and now regularly downloads it on YouTube, so giving her the Wild Kratts toys for her birthday was a no brainer!
Zoe loves to collect the discs, which represent the creature power – making this a great learning game. We gave her the Createrra Creature Rescue Set, the Creature Power 4 Pack – Swimmers Set and the Creature Power 2 Pack featuring Falcon Powers.
The Rescue Set came with a car and driver (OK, Martin & Chris are the Kratt brothers and the girls know which is which, but I DON’T!) Zoe’s had a ball driving this car around and stacking the discs in the backseat. Can I just tell you how much she LOVES collecting those discs and hiding them, only to pull them out to play with car and the sets? What I need to do now is integrate them into learning about the animals – easy peasy since I’m forced to watch Wild Kratts daily!
These play sets are really fun for my animal lover kiddos and allow us to do more animal explorations at home, after studying them at school! But SHHH! They think it’s just fun, not learning 🙂
Do your kids love the Wild Kratts too?
