Valentine's Day Gift Giving Guide -- Gifts for Kids -- Funtime Activity Turtle from the Learning Journey International (Review)

Funtime Activity Turtle will provide early learners with lots of educational fun. This interactive turtle features flashing lights, rotating gears, large buttons, and fun sound effects that will help young children develop hand-eye coordination and reaction skills. Toddlers can pull Funtime Activity Turtle along with them for hours of portable fun.

Requires 2 AA batteries (included).
Ages 12+ months.  

My Thoughts:

I was sent the Funtime Activity Turtle to review with my daughter, Savannah.  Even though she is 18 months old today, she still loved playing with this toy.  Now that she is walking, she enjoys her push and pull along toys more.  So, when she saw this activity turtle and saw that it could be pulled along, she was eager to play with it.  And, what baby and toddler doesn't like buttons and sounds?  Savannah went crazy pushing each button to see which sounds it would make.  In addition, the buttons light up, which engages the child more.  Savannah kept pushing the buttons and pointing to the lights.  She was so proud of herself for being able to make the turtle light up and make noise.  And, when she wasn't playing with the buttons, she was moving the rotating gears back and forth.  At first, I had to show her that they moved and how to move each piece.  But, after a few assisted and then unassisted tries, she got the hang of it.

Overall, I have to say this is a great toy, and one that has quickly become a favorite of my daughter's, as it includes everything she likes, buttons, lights, sounds and moving pieces.  And, when she is not pulling the cute turtle around, she can easily pick it up and carry it from one place to another.  So, when family and friends come to visit, one of the toys Savannah is eager to show them, is her new Funtime Activity Turtle.

In addition to this toy, the Learning Journey International offers an extensive line of toys and games for children of all ages.  So, depending on your child's age and learning ability, you are bound to find a toy that will provide them with hours of entertainment and learning fun.

And, with Valentine's Day around the corner, why not pick them up an educational toy from the Learning Journey International?  These make for great just because gifts, or gifts for special occasions.
