It features 15 unique instruments across five different genres of music, enabling a truly hands-on physical approach to learning as preschoolers mix (and remix) their own musical creations, said Schacht. Best of all, kids are in control of their very own compositions by adding or subtracting instruments, changing the tempo and layering in fun sound effects.

Yeah, it’s a neat idea that doesn’t always work. When some eggs failed to properly hatch on Christmas, angry parents swarmed Spin Master’s social media pages to complain; the company has since vowed to boost their customer service to address problems. Other customers said their newly hatched friends straight up died soon after pecking their way in the world. Or they wouldn’t turn on (read: refused to live).

Kids can build battling robots with this motorized STEM construction kit. The kit comes with one Mock Rocker Bot, a Boxing Bot with more than 380 snap-together pieces. Once kids build and assemble their own robots, these smart-tech self-stabilizing boxers are ready for a match. The robots feature a smart-tech self-stabilizing feature that uses a gyroscope and an accelerometer.
It began in 2013, where Spin Master's head of robotic creations James Bartin explained that his team hated the popularity of unboxing videos on YouTube, and envisioned a concept for a toy that could "unbox" itself. This idea evolved into a concept for a robotic creature that would hatch itself from an egg, necessitating the design of a mechanism for the hatching, and a material for the egg itself. Hatchimals was officially launched on October 7, 2016, backed by advertising on television and digital platforms, such as social networking services.
The hatching is kind of cool (and pulled her away from her iPad for a couple of minutes) but when the animal inside sings "Happy Birthday" it's supposed to be fully hatched. It wasn't. By the way, you'll want a Dustbuster around because the shell can make a bits-o-plastic mess if you have to break it apart to get to the accessories in the bottom part of the egg.
hatchimals toys and accessories are also perfect for collecting and trading with friends. You can choose a five or seven pack of lip balm and then host a hatchimals party with all of your friends. hatchimals pillows, hats, and gloves are super snuggly and perfect for getting cozy while still rocking hatchimals-brand gear. choose your favorite from our collectible hatchimal tins selection, and use it as a lunch box for back to school, or get one in every color and collect them all. however you decide to use your hatchimals products, you’ll love the fun colors, adorable little hatchimal creatures, and all of the activities that you can do with these amazing little toys.
Let your baby watch you socialize. Your baby will learn a lot by watching you interact with your friends and other children. Relax while you are around other people, as your baby can pick up on your tension and may feel that other people should be feared. Be friendly and open and smile as you talk with other people. Hug them when it is appropriate. Your baby will learn that this is how we interact with others.
I originally was going to put this up for xmas but decided life is to short to wait for some day in late December so I gave it to my granddaughter who was overly thrilled with the out of the blue present. It took her a while to open everything but afterwards she played and played with it and returned to it the next day. Yes, it's expensive when you total up a little sister, a regular doll, etc. but you get quite a few accessories and wigs. The wigs, both the hair ones and the vinyl wig ones, really jazz up your dolls and changes their looks. It really is a like a play set with dolls and a pet and accessories. While i wished it had been cheaper, I thought the price was decent as it kept her busy for a good couple of hours and using her imagination as she dressed up the dolls and animal and acted out scenes. The only thing I didn't like about the toy was afterwards, I couldn't get the little suitcase lid to stay on. I'm not sure it's supposed to but it would of been nice if all those things packed nicely back into the case and the lid fit snugly.

For a roarin’ good time, this furReal dino dubbed Munchin’ Rex is ready to go. He comes with a bottle, broccoli treat, and caveman cookie, and when he’s offered them he reacts with one of 35 sound and motion combinations. He may beg for his bottle, chomp on the cookie or declare that broccoli “yucky.” You’re never quite sure what he’ll do, but it’s sure to be a fun time playing with him and finding out. He’s also soft and snuggleable, so he’s a great friend to always have around whether it’s playtime or naptime.
