Schwinn Easy Steer Tricycle Review

Schwinn Easy Steer Tricycle
Everyone remembers their first tricycle fondly, and the Schwinn Easy Steer Tricycle is sure to feature fondly in the memories of the younger generation in years to come.

This heavy duty tricycle has a removable steering system so that the parent can choose to control the trike, and in time give control back to the child.

With wide EVA tires that give greater comfort and control and a dump bin for the storage of toys, the Schwinn Easy Steer Tricycle is easily assembled and is built to last.

Suitable for children between the ages of 1 and 3, this is very much the first, and possibly the only tricycle that your child will ever ride.

Unlike other tricycles, the Schwinn Easy Steer Tricycle has a 3-point seat belt that gives parents peace of mind that their child is safe and secure on the trike.

Monopoly Millionaires Board Game

Monopoly Millionaires Board Game
Family game night will get a little more entertaining when you introduce Monopoly Millionaires.

This is a new twist on the classic board game that most of us grew up playing in our homes. But you'll find that this version is more up to date and has a few changes.

 First, you'll notice that all of the properties are much more expensive than the original version of the game. But just like the original version you'll buy properties, houses, and hotels. But you'll also find a fortune card on each property.

Instead of just one playing piece, you can play with up to three different ones. Your piece gets upgraded as you make money.

Review Of John Deere Sit-N-Scoot Activity Tractor

Review Of John Deere Sit-N-Scoot Activity Tractor
Getting kids to be active is a chief concern of parents, along with educating them through play.

This tractor works on both by teaching kids about farms at the same time as getting them on their feet and scooting!

Key Features Of The Sit-N-Scoot Activity Tractor 

* Plays “Old McDonald”
* Realistic tractor sounds
* Walk-behind bar
* Ages 12 months – 5 years

Is The Sit-N-Scoot Activity Tractor Worth Buying? 

The first thing the Sit-N-Scoot activity tractor gets right is assembly. Although this is a large toy meant for riding around on and pushing along, there’s basically nothing to assemble here.

All you have to do is attach the seat, which is done by sliding it onto the body of the toy – simple as that! Once up and running the colorful and chunky design will appeal to kids. It’s eye-catching, which helps to hold attention once kids are playing and also makes imaginative play a little more vivid.

There are many excellent features on this tractor. Firstly, it plays “Old McDonald”. This is a brilliant choice of song that all kids absolutely love once they learn, and it encourages them to learn the names of animals.

The tractor also makes tractor sounds. This adds to a child’s play session, helping to bring the tractor to life and giving them a better grasp of what their toy is meant to be. It’s a small thing that gives lots of extra excitement, making this more fun to play with.

There are also four farm animals included in the set. These can ride on several different parts of the tractor. Alternatively, they can be stored inside the seat. The animals encourage further the learning of animal names, and make the give the toy a greater range of entertainment features to keep kids occupied for longer.

Besides being used to store animals, the lifting seat can also be used to store other things. That means kids can keep their favorite toys inside the tractor if they want, taking them wherever they scoot. The seat also plays animal sounds when it’s raised which adds another dimension to an already full-featured toy.

Most important of all is that this toy encourages kids to be active. It can either be ridden on, with kids using their feet to scoot themselves along, or it can be pushed along with the walk-behind bar. This makes it great for kids who are learning to walk.

Overall this is a brilliant toy that’s sure to bring happiness and hours of entertainment to your child. At the same time, it’ll help to get them active and teach them a bit about farmyard animals.

An all-round great package and at a reasonably priced on at that.

Are The Wheely Bug Ride On Toys Worth Buying?

Prince Lionheart Wheely Bug
There has been some debate over how to choose the correct size for this product, which comes in large and small.

The manufacturer recommends the larger size for children aged 3 or above, though some parents find the large suitable for even younger children.

Other parents have argued that the small is a lot more manoeuvrable, making the toy more fun to play with, and still supporting their child as they grow.

Although it depends on your child, the general consensus remains to stick with the manufacturer's recommendation.

As for riding on the toy, make sure that you have a suitable surface available for your child to play on.

This means smooth wooden or marble floors rather than carpet.

It won't really work or gain any speed unless the surface is very smooth.
