VTech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker

 I had some sort of version of these Sit-to-Stand Learning walkers for my kids and I swear all 4 took their first steps while holding onto them. This particular one offers 5 piano keys play music notes, 3 colourful spinning rollers, 3 shape sorters and light-up shape buttons, and a telephone handset, spinning gears and open/close barn door enhance role play fun.

VTech Drop and Go Dump Truck

 This Drop and Go Dump Truck develops motor skills by having kids lift the hinged bucket to unload the rocks and start again. This truck plays melodies, phrases, tools and colours and kids can move the truck along while the rocks are in the bucket to see them rumble around inside.

 FurReal Roarin’ Tiger is a toy that will not only continue to keep your preschooler occupied it will amaze the whole family. If you roar he roars back and responds when you talk to him. He has 100+ different sound-and-motion combinations and when your LO pets his head he may even fall asleep.

Minecraft is a game where you can build a whole world in Creative mode or go on adventures in Survival mode with other people and my 8 and 9-year-old are both obsessed with it.  This Xbox One S is something we are waiting for ourselves and it is so much more than just a gaming system with over 100 exclusive games, built-in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player and 4K video streaming.
