Normally, toys and child products other than clothing are featured on Wednesday. However, because I fell behind this week due to the move, I'm featuring it a day late!
This week I am reviewing a really neat product by the Neat-Oh! (Zip Bin company). This company has recently received several awards. They have received the Design Defined Award from the International Housewares Association, the Best Smart Play/Smart Toy Award from Dr. Toy, Seal of Approval from the National Parenting Center, the iParenting Media Award as and Excellent Product, grade “A” from the Toy Tips Toy Repart card program, Preferred Choice Award in Creative Play for Girls from Child Magazine, Seal of Excellent in Creative Play for Kids Category from Child Magazine, and Gold Award from National Parenting Publications Awards. The list goes on-since 2006, they have won over 20 awards! As you can see they are a very respected company!
ZipBin® Softie™ Racer is first up. This super cute bin looks like a racecar and can even be worn as an adorable backpage. It opens to reveal roads that the two die cast cars included can drive on. It would make the perfect gift for a boy who likes cars. Imagine, his backpack doubles as a toy! My two year old daughter really liked this toy and had fun making the cars drive along the road. This goes to show that even 2 year old toddlers will have fun with this one! I think this is such a neat idea. Most little boys I know have cars all over their rooms and this product may make their parents lives a little easier with the easy clean up. Imagine the child plays on the mat and then when it is time for clean up they simply sip up the mat to a box in matter of seconds, put on the lid, and they are all done! This item retails for $19.99.
ZipBin® Dinosaur becomes a dinosaur island. My daughter is only two and doesn't really know what a dinosaur is so I had little boy I know help test out this product. He loved the dinosaurs but what is great is that the surface led to more creative play and he brought out his own additional toys. For example, he had a jeap driving and action heroes running around the volcano's, into the cave, and getting stuck in the tar pit. It was certainly a hit for him! While the bin itself is very neat, this item even comes with 4 dinosaurs. For a little boy or girl who love dinosaurs this would be a great way to store and play with them. This item retails for $24.99.
Mini Unicorn set; This pretty little bin features pastel colors, rainbows, clouds, unicorns, butterflies, a field of flowers for unicorns to frolick in...and that is just the lid! The playmat has a picnic area, waterfall, beach, stream, and river to cross. Included, are two cute little unicorns. In addition to play with unicorns this would be wonderful for mini dolls, ponies, fairies, and other magical creatures. This item retails for $9.99. Overall I really like this product because they have the most detailed play mats I've seen, make a GREAT space saver, wonderful for travel, inspires creativity, easy to clean, and so quick to clean up! They are high quality and highly recommend. Such a neat-oh product!
Come back tomorrow and I'll have pics up of my daughter playing with these items.
