Disclosure: The joy in this post and all the Little Tikes toys were generously sent to me by MGA Entertainment but as always, my opinion is my own.
I have been a mom since I was 26 years old. My oldest will be turning 14 this Christmas Day and I still remember that chubby little face and crying such happy tears when she came into this world. There are some things as a mom, especially a mom of many, that I have always believed in over the years. Whether it has been a cream, lotion, vacuum or toy, there are just some that stand the test of time.
Little Tikes is most definitely one of those brands. I have had several Little Tikes toys in my house the past 14 years and you know many of them are still here even 14 years later. They are just a toy that can take the drool from a teething baby and the rough play of an older child and still be used by my 1-year-old even though it was purchased for my almost 14-year-old. Did you know that Little Tikes has been around since 1970? I had no idea either but I can understand why they have been around this long, they make quality, safe and durable toys.
I was sent three of their newest ones, the LITTLE TIKES™ Light ‘N Go 3-IN-1 Sports Zone, LITTLE TIKES™ Tire Twister Lights and LITTLE TIKES™ Waffle Blocks Steam Train and I know that these toys are going to outlast my boys not to mention they are going to have hours of fun.
Triple the play with the 3-in-1 Sports Zone! Dunk, kick and score with baby’s three favourite sports: basketball, soccer, and bowling. Toddlers will enjoy playing basketball with an adjustable height hoop, playing soccer to build gross motor skills and bowling to teach them shapes, colours, and cause and effect. Includes three balls, features 75 songs and fits easily into storage. Available at Amazon, HBC, Indigo, Toys“R”Us and Red Apple. Since Toby loves balls so much this is the perfect toy to help him learn and play.
- 3 mode buttons on the backboard grow with baby
- Learn (teaches numbers, colours and shapes
- Move (lights and sounds encourage movement
- Games (teaches child to follow directions)
From the day that this first was being advertised on television, my 4-year-old was smitten. I am telling you this is the “it” toy for toddlers this season and worth every penny to see the delight on this face. I can already see the hours of fun this one is going to bring!
The Little Tikes™ Tire Twister Lights toy is the wildest tire ever – all powered by a remote-controlled car on the inside of the tire! The easy-to-steer kids’ remote control car gives kids the power to control the car forward and backward. The car can also perform backflips inside the tire to change directions and can spin the tire 360 degrees! Remove the car from the inside the tire for regular remote controlled floor action. The Tire Twister Lights is two toys in one! Batteries sold separately. Available at Amazon, Indigo, Toys“R”Us, Loblaws and Walmart.
Honestly, this may be my favourite one yet! Not only can both of my youngest have fun playing with this one, my older two can help and get in on the fun to help them build some great tracks and some really cool trains no doubt. With 177 blocks and buddies and over 12 feet of track, there is nothing my boys imagination won’t be able to create.
The waffle blocks are going to make it easy for even the smallest hands in my house to dream up big things. Available at Amazon, Costco, Indigo and Toys“R”Us.
- Comes with 171 Blocks, 4 Buddies, 2 Animals and over 12 ft of track
- The train comes to life with real steam and train sounds
- You can also build a train station and bridge
- Includes storage bag (oh my gosh such a great feature)
- Batteries sold separately
One toy that will always be in my house is Little Tikes as it’s one I trust wholeheartedly. If you are looking for some great Christmas gifts this year, look no further than Little Tikes!
