We were recently sent two fab toys from the Thomas & Friends range by Trends UK. A Thomas & Friends Smart Tablet along with a Thomas & Friends Flip & Learn Phone. Aimed at preschoolers (18m to 4yrs) these were a little young for L so they went to one of our friends to use and explore.
Having seen the Flip & Learn Phone many a morning on the school run I know that has been a huge hit without having to ask, but both toys have been very popular and helpful at home as they are designed to aid learning whilst still being fun.
I’m going to start with the Flip & Learn Phone, it’s a bright ‘Thomas’ Blue, nice and chunky and very well built. With colourful buttons that are easy to press and even a camera button so the kids can get in on some pretend selfie action.
Thomas, Edward, James and friends are ready and waiting to take your call, with these familiar voices children get to learn all about numbers and colours whilst they play at making calls and copying those around them. It really is delightful. Plus it’s compact enough to easily carry around, so make a great on the go toy.
With a reasonable price tag of £10.99 and available from John Lewis this a fab toy.
Now as for the Smart Tablet this really is very sweet and a great way to get used to letters, numbers and more.
As you would expect it is just as bright and colourful as the phone and nice ans sturdy, which is perfect for the small, sometimes rough hands of small kids.
It has a touch sensitive screen that is really easy to navigate and it has 6 games to play which revolve around recognising letters, numbers and colours as well as recognising the characters and destinations which is a pleasure for any Thomas & Friends fan.
The tablet is again very well priced, only £17.99 and can be found on Amazon.
It’s nice to find toys that are equally focused on both fun and education, they are very well thought out products that have an immediate appeal to children.
