Some of you may have heard me mention before that my little boy has some additional needs. For him this means that although he does love toys, he can sometimes have tunnel vision so for him its all about Dinosaurs. Trying to introduce anything that isn’t a Dinosaur can be hard at times and a lot of the time in less its something that really stands out he either isn’t interested or looses interest quickly. Baring that in mind when I was asked if we would like to review the Fisher Price Think & Learn Teach ‘n Tag Movi, I was hopeful that thanks to its movements, bright lights and interaction it could possibly win him round.
The Think & Learn Teach ‘n Tag Movi is probably one of the cutest toys I have ever seen. Movi is a friendly robot whose aim is to encourages toddlers to get their minds and bodies moving while teaching thru fun games and activities how to follow directions and think critically about the world around them.
The great thing about Movi is he has 360 degree mobilitity, giving him the ability to move around with your child. Upon setting first setting movi up you attach his back wheel which gives him the 360 degree mobility, its really easy to attach and simply just clicks in place. I was a bit worried that because our house is fully caperted it might effect his ability to move around quickly if at all. However I was pleased to see that it didn’t.
Movi has over 60 different faces and as you go through the different play modes and take part in the different games you’ll notice his face changing thru out. There are three different play modes and six different games to play in total. You’ll see movi react differently to each one, I could of sat for hours and watched him. Hes very clever robot. For example when playing the shapes game and Movi said ‘Be a Triangle’ he then used his 360 degree mobility to move himself to 3 points of the room to form a triangle. Very Cool.
Movi offers different play modes for kids to take part in. In some play modes Movi would ask questions like ‘what shape has 3 sides’ and then would give him options so red for ‘square’ and ‘green’ for triangle. I was really suprised and happy to see just how quickly my little man got the hang of it. Every time he got a question right and Movi showed he was happy or congratulated him, I could see little mans confidence growing all whilst have lots of fun.
There was also more active play modes too. Like ‘Movi Says’ Movi would give little man directions Movi Says ‘Jump up and down’ so little man would start jumping and then Movi Says ‘Touch your feet’ So little man would touch his feet ‘Touch your head’ so little man would touch his head… ‘ooo Movi didn’t say that’ Movi would say and his face would turn red. It took a while for little man to get the hang of it, but once he did he was having loads of fun playing.
Movi has become little mans favourite toy at the moment, which its such a huge step for us. Most days now he spends a good few hours playing games with Movi and as times gone on hes slowly learning more things by taking part in the fun games Movi offers. Its being lovely seeing him answer questions by pushing the green and red buttons to things that until now he wasn’t 100% sure on like shapes. I would definitely recommend this for any little boy or girl, with christmas coming up or even as a gift its a great toy.
