My house looks like Toys R Us threw up in it. Not only do family and friends buy Phoenyx new stuff, but I am one of those moms that personally gets bored playing with the same things over and over and over again, so when I see something cool, I will often buy it so I don’t stab my eyeballs out.

The stay at home parenting stuff is for the birds some days.

This past week I have been cleaning out the younger baby toys and upgrading to bigger toddler stuff. It’s so hard to know if a toy is good or not, even based on reviews, so when I was searching it was pretty much a shot in the dark. Let’s face it… you could get home and it could be something totally different once you get it out of the box.

So I wanted to share a few videos that showcased the two new toys in our house. That way those of you interested could see if it’s a good fit for yours before you waste your hard earned money on toys your kids ultimately throw in the closest and ignore!

First new toy cluttering up my floor is the:

Fisher-Price Topzy Tumblers Twirlin’ Tumblin’ Fun Park

Information on Product:

  • The Twirlin Whirlin Fun park will excite baby with all its action packed fun
  • Batting at the roller brings the ferris wheel to life, helping baby learn about cause & effect
  • Watching the tumblers flip end-over-end or pop up the steps is great for eye tracking!
  • Figuring out how to activate sounds & tumbling action helps baby practice thinking skills
  • As the ferris wheel lights up & spins, music & sounds play, enhancing baby’s senses

My thoughts? I love this toy. OMGOSH.

So cute. I totally didn’t expect the little hopping Weebles. It has a loud click on it but its no more obnoxious than any other toy in the house.  Assembly was a breeze and it snapped into place easily. As a bonus, it came with batteries already installed.

Our 2nd new toy is the:

Fisher-Price Lil’ Zoomers Spinnin’ Sounds Speedway

Product Features:

  • Lights, spinnin’ action and racin’ tunes
  • Two rattling cars to roll down and around
  • Pull the gearshift to start the fun
  • Easy to grasp, shake and roll cars

I had to have my spouse snap part of the race car on one end because it was relatively sticky to push in. Other than that it was only a 2 minute put together. This toy did not come with batteries and needs 3 Cs.

Works like a charm and you can also put little balls and they spin out as well.

If I had any complaint, it would be that both toys go off in a few cycles and you have to press buttons to start it up again. I know this is a battery saver but on a child as young as mine, I would prefer a setting that allows it to keep moving.

I am going to share some of our other toys as well since Christmas is coming up and I fear I may own everything on the market. At the very least you might be able to narrow down the Christmas list in your own home!

Now feel free to share with me a toy you are curious about (cause maybe I have it here) OR one you personally recommend (or even better, do NOT recommend).

  1. These may be for a bit older age – but I work with kids mostly 2 and older . Educationally speaking, I like the Vtech Pull n’ Learn Car Carrier (can be found at Walmart), the Vtech Explore and Learn Helicopter (also Walmart), and the Playskool Explore and Grow Busy Ball Popper (the Fisher Price Go Baby Go! Poppity Pop Musical Dino is cute too). All can also be found on Amazon, as that is where I looked up the names :)

  2. My daughter would have fun with the Tumblin’ Fun Park. Right now she’s very into her Vtech Crazy Legs Learning Bug. She’s getting good at inserting the shapes, but still looks surprised when she pushes the button and the shapes all pop out.

  3. Stephanie g

    My an sat n the speedway too and burnt up the motor. Fp replaced it and a yr later the replacement is going strong. If you show p how to throw the cars on the ramp, he’ll catch on soon enough tht it activates the spinner. My sn is only 2 weeks older than p and he loves it. The extra Toys are fun too, the ramp and construction set. Do you have an apptivity monkey?

  4. Love the videos!! Landon would try to sit in his speedway… would have been funny if it twirled him around. Now Hunter is all about Star Wars and Landon is all about trains. I miss the little kids toys!

    • Jude would want to sit in it if he had it!

      I miss the days of buying toys. We have SO many toys since he’s the 3rd … I don’t think he even has any that are not hand-me-downs.
