Beat Bugs Fans Will Go Crazy for the New Toy, Clothing and Bedding Line Available Now Exclusively at Target (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

My youngest daughter's birthday is a couple months away, but she is already working hard on preparations as she knows she wants to have a Beat Bugs birthday.  What is Beat Bugs you ask?  Well, if you follow my blog then you may recall me mentioning last month how I was chosen as a member of the new Beat Bugs Dream Team, for the popular animated series streaming on Netflix.  If you missed my post or want to learn more about the Beat Bugs series, check out my previous post here:

Today, I wanted to introduce you all to the new Beat Bugs toy line exclusively at Target.  If you have been to Target lately and visited the toy aisle, then you might have seen these fun new toys. 

We had to make a special trip the other day so that Savannah could spend her birthday money and Bella had cracked open her piggy bank and took out all her coins and dollars, which she had been saving for Disney, so that she could buy a couple of the Beat Bugs toys she saw online.  I still can't believe how tech savvy kids are nowadays. And, once they learn how to spell and read, you really have to watch them.  I can't tell you how many times I pass the iPad or my phone over to the girls and they do a search for their favorite shows or characters.  This is how Bella found out about the new Beat Bugs toy line last month before I did.  And, ever since then she has been asking me to keep an eye out for them, so she could get some.

So, when I was asked a couple weeks ago if I wanted to get a sneak peek of the new toys, and share a review of a couple of the new toys, I jumped at the opportunity as I knew Bella would be so excited when she saw the toys arrive at our doorstep and would do a great job in helping me review them...and, that she did, along with the help of Savannah.

You can check out the entire Beat Bugs toy line at Target by visiting -- you will see plush toys, figure sets, musical instruments and more.  

And, just today as Bella was showing me the cakes and decorations she wants (Google Beat Bugs birthdays and you will be amazed at how many kids are into this show and have already thrown a Beat Bugs themed birthday party), I saw that they even have backpacks out now.  I know who will be needing another backpack soon. :-)

We were sent the Beat Bugs Piano Music Mat and the a Matching Game from WonderForge.  The girls couldn't wait for me to put batteries into the piano mat to give it a go.  

This piano music mat comes pre-programmed with 2 Beat Bugs tunes -- "All You Need is Love" and "Yellow Submarine."  You also have 2 game modes -- solo piano or follow me game.  Once I had the batteries in, the girls went to town trying out the two game modes, and signing along to these popular Beatles song. 

 I have been a fan of the Beatles since I was little, and used to play their music as lullabies for the girls when they were babies.  Never did I imagine that my 5.5 and now 7 year old daughters would be fans of the Beatles and be singing all their hits.  But, thanks to this new animated series, they not only get to watch a fun and educational show, but are also being introduced to Beatles music, sung by popular music artists of today including P!nk and Eddie Vedder.  Bella has been signing "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Help non-stop and now has these songs stuck in my head, too.

Both of my girls loved the piano music mat, and continue to pull it out daily and try out their piano skills with their feet.  And, whenever they put on an episode streaming from Netflix, it call for the piano mat to be pulled out, so they can bounce around and add music to the songs. :-)

Who doesn't love matching games.  We have been fans of WonderForge for years, and I am always sharing rave reviews, especially around the holidays about their games.  So, I was excited when I heard they would be releasing a Beat Bugs game.  This game has become a staple in our daily school routine now, as we break for mid morning snack and the girls pull this game out to play. The winner gets to choose their favorite Beat Bugs episode to watch while I am making lunch.  It really doesn't matter who wins, as the girls have fun flipping the cards and calling out the characters names (always with smiles on their faces) and they both LOVE all the episodes, so will watch them over and over again.  They have watched the episodes available now on Netflix so many times that they are speaking the lines of the characters as they watch each episode. :-)

In addition to putting together her Beat Bugs birthday party, Bella has already put together a long birthday wish list. The only things she is asking for are Beat Bugs toys, clothes, a backpack and bedding.  And, if she gets birthday money, she knows where she is going to spend it...Target, as they carry all the Beat Bugs toys she wants. :-)

So, if you have a Beat Bugs fan in your life, and you haven't already visited your local Target store or shopped online or Beat Bugs toys, you will want to check them out soon.  We went last week and I had to go back to the store today and found the toys were picked over.  They will definitely be a hot toy this holiday season and once everyone knows that toys from this hit animated series streaming on Netflix are now available at Target.
