Tomy Hide 'n' Squeak Eggs
Advantages: Great little toy, cheap, strong and hardwearing
Disadvantages: small ones cant open the case when its shut!
When my Husband got back from his Stag do the month before our wedding he bought one of our sons who was 16 months at the time this toy.
It is basically 6 eggs and they split apart and when you push down on them they squeak! They are also different colours and on the base they slot into the place of the egg case from the shape. So at the bottom you have a heart, a star a circle, a cross,square and a triangle.
My 3 and half year old son also took a interest in these too, I am not sure if it was because it was not his toy, or that it reminded him of a kinder egg but he also likes to play with this.
What is great about it is that it is just the right size for little hands. And it also teaches them how to put the egg together again, and where to slot the eggs back into place in the case.
I find that they are very hard wearing plastic and very appealing for any baby or toddler. In fact even for adults the little squeak is like little birdies, and not annoying, well it wasn't to me anyway.
I had never even seen these before my husband bought them back but now I have seen them in a few places, mainly online. You can buy some for about £5-6 and I think they make a great gift, at first you look at them and think oh what a rubbish toy but for the price I think it's a pretty good deal, especially as so many toys are available for a lot more then £5-6 too. I am thinking about getting them for a friends baby for Christmas as they are a toy that not many people would buy as they are not as popular as others so less chance of a duplicate.
The only annoying thing about this toy is the fact that because the egg separates into two that you are always looking for the pieces, my kids have been playing with these this week and I can't find half of the eggs! Probably under the sofa and in various places they shouldn't be!
The only downside I really see about this toy is when the case is shut little hands cant open it up again which annoys my 3 and a half year old.
I would rate this toy 4/5 for how well it has been made and the price.
Age:- 6 months onwards (more suitable for a 12mth old)
