Vtech Mobigo review by - review and free-toys-for-christmas

My turn to open a prize next, and mine was the Vtech Mobigo. Effectively a games console for younger children, it combines educational games with downloadable 'apps' that tested me on maths, spelling, and something Mummy called spatial awareness. She was also able to check online how I was doing in each of the learning areas. Very easy to hook up to the computer and download more games, which I did myself (although you will need a parent to pay the £2.99 for each new game!). I got the pink version with a Disney Princess game, but it does come in yellow/blue with a Cars game. It is recommended for ages 3-8.
At £49.99, it compares very well to the LeapsterExplorer, which the Bug owns. Personally I prefer the Leapster, because the games have more interesting levels (see my list of pros and cons for the Mobigo), but this is still a great interactive toy with lots of scope for learning.

Le Toy Van - Fire Engine by - full review and chance to win this.

The Bug was so excited to unwrap all the little packages that came with this gorgeous Le Toy Van Fire-Engine set. A lovely, quality wooden toy that will last and last - you know, the kind that you never want to give away, even after you've grown out of it. Unfortunately disappointment ensued as he realised that  firemen do not come with the set, so if you decide to ask Santa for this (and it would be a welcome sight in any young boy's Christmas stocking) you need to buy a couple of firemen to hold the loudhaler, climb the extentable ladder, and drive to the emergency! Cuthberts retail this toy at £26.99 and know their toys well enough to give you great advice, in-store and online.

 Fancy being a Palaenttologist ? Then these kits are a great way to get to find out about the dinosaur's that lived on our planet millions of years ago. The kits are a a plaster block with the skeleton embeded within, use the special tool provided to dig away and find all the various parts - Jaw, Shoulders Backbones etc.

Once you discover all the pieces you can put the skeleton together.

This range is very good for children aged 8 upwards and will keep them occuped for hours. its can get a little "messy" so a few old newspapers laid down first will help.

This range also has a Pterosaur and a Triceratops, these are just a couple in a range of skeletons. Great value at £9.99 anbd ideal as gifts for Birthdays.
