ABC Dancing Dino
“Kids are riveted by this delightfully interactive educational toy. Remote Control ABC Dancing Dino responds to the touch of various buttons on the accompanying handheld device – walking and talking, dancing, singing, playing music – he even asks questions and confirms whether kids have selected the correct answer. His wiggly, waggly tail and enthusiastic dance moves (accompanied by humorous phrases like ‘I’m a prehistoric dancing machine!’), ignite particularly gleeful responses from young ones. Fun songs and sound effects keep children happily engaged, laughing, dancing, and singing along to familiar tunes. Between Action Mode and Let’s Learn Mode (both of which are triggered by remote control) ABC Dancing Dino covers a lot of play territory.”
Why they like it: “Simple and easy-to-use remote. Great for little ones as the Dino doesn’t roam too far and doesn’t move too fast so kids can easily track.”
Play and Learn Cash Register
“The Play & Learn Cash Register is the perfect addition to any pretend store. Kids will love playing with this realistic cash register that has an LCD screen to show your total, keypad that is a working calculator and a working cash drawer that sounds “cha-ching” when it opens. The unit also has a display selector that will allow kids to select foods and the amount they wish to charge for them.
Complete with credit card, cash and coins, kids can use the Play & Learn Cash Register and pretend to shop at the grocery store – just like mom and dad!”
