AD. Interactive learning toys are a great way for children to practice their numerical skills, learn colours and even work on using their memory more. I’ve got a couple of lovely new toys from Hey Duggee to review and want to let you have a closer look, and hear our thoughts.
The first item we have is the Hey Duggee Flip & Learn phone. This is available from John Lewis for £10.99. The phone is labelled as being suitable for children aged 18 months plus, and I think this really is spot on based on the toys Daisy loved at a similar age. The tablet requires 2 x AAA batteries.
The flip and learn phone is great for helping little ones practice a number of skills including colour and number recognition, basic communication and also their fine motor skills. The phone is lightweight, and comfortable to hold. It is easy to flip open too. Even for smaller hands.
To use the phone just press a key. The phone will make prompts to press specific keys and numbers to perform actions. For example the phone will say to speak to Duggee press 9.
The buttons are simple to press, fun to use and the noises are interesting too. This is perfect for children who are fans of Hey Duggee. The colours are bright and it is great to keep the attention of little ones.
I feel that this phone is great for teaching little ones about following instructions and helps to encourage their imagination too.
The second toy we have to review is the Hey Duggee Smart Tablet. This is available from John Lewis for £17.99. The smart tablet contains 5 different activities.
This smart tablet helps to encourage little ones to learn about numbers, shapes, letters, characters, badges and colours too. The tablet requires 3 x AAA batteries.
The screen is touch sensitive and is very easy to follow, even for small children. There are 5 activities for little ones to use and each one of them has a different focus.
The buttons are super simple to press and really responsive too. It is a nice touch that Duggee lights up when questions are asked and then these questions relate to the Hey Duggee show. This is great to test children’s memories and also adds an extra fun element to using the tablet.
Both of these electronic toys are great for little ones who are fans of Hey Duggee. I love that as well as being a slight introduction to tech that grown ups use it is also a great way to work on colour, number, character, shapes and letter recognition.
