We were asked to test four creative toys to get their creative juices flowing:

For the pet lover

Do your kids love pets? Hamsters in a House allows kids to use imaginative play while interacting with cute and charismatic Hamster characters in their customizable hamster-sized worlds. The set we reviewed were form Series 2. This version features eleven new adorable Hamsters, as well as food-themed playsets that show a lot of detail and accessories. We received Ham’s Burger Diner Playset. This toy gets kids ready for a lot of fast food and action as Ham zips around a track while ordering, serving and enjoying the food this set has to offer.

My kids fell in love with Ham. As soon as I got her out of the box, my kids marvelled at her and spent a long time just wanting to hold her.

Once the Burger Diner Playset was put together, they turned her on and watcher her zip around the track and set. They loved watching as Ham zoomed around the playset. It was also fun to turn the sign to the diner to dispense food from the diner out to a trolley for Ham to push to tables. They had hours of fun helping Ham in her Hamster world.

Quiet time fun

Maybe a toy that kids can play with anywhere is more of what you are looking for? Tangle are 90 degree curved sections of links that allows users to twist, shape and fidget easily. When connected together, there is no end (or beginning for that matter) to the fun to be had. It is a great toys because they inspire a user’s imagination and are quiet so they do not disruptive to others close by.

Kids playing with various sets of Tangle toys

 

My daughter has fun with her Tangle when she wants to have some time to herself and relax. She likes being able to contort her Tangle into so many different shapes. She was amazed that she could also pull the links apart and put them back together. She could also use this when she on the school bus or if she cannot sleep at night when she can’t sleep to quietly entertain herself.

I was really happy to be able to get the designs I knew my kids would love. They love the fidget cube they got this summer, but they were super excited to get ones with their favourite super heroes on them. Each fidget cube was extra special for them because the buttons, switches, rollers and other objects on this device matched perfectly with the character design. Both kids felt super heroic when they played with them.

My kids and I had a ball with this toy! We attached the toy brick tape to my workstation in a flash. I then poured out our box of building blocks and figures to see how well they would fit onto the tape. We were excited to see how well other pieces stayed firm while defying gravity on the tape. It was so much fun to see our figures and toy brick creations in a new light. The tape help firm on the unfinished and smooth surfaces. We can’t wait to try using this in different places around our home to build more fun.
