As I shared last month I was given the opportunity to review an item of my choice from CSN stores, here's the link back to my previous post. Well it was an overwhelming choice to make with their +200 stores and all with amazing products.
So what I decided was to get something for my kids and headed over to allmodern.com to check out their selection of toys. Mudpuppy Press's Play Scene toys caught my eye. Play Scenes are a single page book that comes with reusable stickers for your kids to create different scenes and adventures on. There are several options to choose and I let my kids pick what they wanted. My oldest went with 'On the Construction Site' and my youngest 'Garden Fairies'. Why I choose Muddypuppy Play Scenes was:
1. They're imaginative play driven toys.
2. Are great for making up stories so it’s a good reading tool toy too.
3. NO Batteries, kid powered fun
4. Good for travel, for restaurants and to take along when you visit your 'no-little kids of their own' family and friends.
5. Quiet play
6. Small motor skill developmental play
Seemed like a great pick to me. So what do I think about them now that they have arrived? They're as great as I expected! You get 3 large sticker sheets with about 50 stickers. They are bright and colorful and definitely keep my kids interest. They work well for all the outings I noted above. I actually got these books a week or so ago but tucked them away to bring out for a little trip we went on. I have been searching for great out and about toys.
They are actually larger than expected, not much bigger but the image you see above is about the size of an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper and then it folds open. It is nice to have that handle for easy toting.
Only down side is storage of the stickers. I wished that there was a small plastic case, kind of like a pencil case that was attached and folded out. That way you could put all the stickers in. I used some small flat baby wipe dispensers that we had on hand, but a fabric or plastic pencil case would work better. I'll have to see what I can find. Oh and I have found I like to take a minute if we're taking these out and about and pull out some of the tiny teeny stickers so they don't get lost. But there are still LOTS of large to medium size stickers to play with.
All and all fits just what I was looking for!
