Imaginext Supernova Battle Rover Review (Fisher-Price)

Our rating: 5 stars

Imaginext SupernovaFisher-Price have a great reputation in toys for preschoolers and they have another big hit on their hands Imaginext Supernova Battle Rover! It’s a 2-in-1 vehicle with a space shuttle that you can take out, and it’s big enough for kids to push along (although not as massive as it looks in the picture).

We can imagine kids running to this with outstretched arms, shrieking with delight. But does it live up to its appearance? Let’s take a look.

LeapPad 2
Our rating: 5 stars

#1 Best Seller in Amazon’s Electronic Learning Products category

LeapFrog’s LeapPad 2 has ‘leaped’ to the top of the hotly competitive market for tablets for kids. Building on the successes of the earlier model, the new LeapPad boasts improved technology and better apps to offer a more rewarding experience in educational play.

Tablet toys like the LeapPad are the perfect choice for kids who are constantly asking to play with mommy’s or daddy’s iPad and phone. They get to feel all grown up because they have their own tablet, and you get to keep yours! They keep kids entertained and they’re teaching kids something the same time.

So let’s take a closer look to see what makes the Leap Pad 2 top of the heap – and since nothing is perfect, we have some criticisms too.

Lalaloopsy Harmony B Sharp Review

Lalaloopsy Silly Hair Stars: Harmony B Sharp (MGA Entertainment)

B SharpOur rating: 4.5 stars

Lalaloopsy Harmony B Sharp is the latest in the super-popular line of Lalaloopsy dolls. She sure is cute in a way that really appeals to little girls, with an adorable round face and big eyes, but Harmony B Sharp has extra attractions: she talks, sings and even dances!

Yes, when Harmony B Sharp is hooked up to her stand, she dances along to the songs that she’s singing (a different one for each of her ‘silly hair’ hairstyles). But she’s not cheap, so is this latest Lalaloopsy doll worth what she costs? We find out.

Jake’s Musical Pirate Ship Bucky Review

Jake's Musical Pirate ShipJake and the Neverland Pirates Musical Pirate Ship Bucky Review
Our rating: 5 stars

This is a toy that kids will love, carry around with them and play with for hours. As you’d expect from a Fisher-Price toy, it is well-designed and sturdy for those little fingers. We don’t give 5-star ratings easily but Jake’s Musical Pirate Ship Bucky definitely merits it.

Bucky is a pirate ship with lots of defenses and hidden features. There’s a snapping Tick Tock crocodile that pops out from behind a trap door, a push-button water-missile cannon and another button plays songs and Jake’s favorite phrases from the show, so your child can learn the meaning while interacting with Jake and his buddy Skully (figures included).
