Tomy Hide n Squeek Eggs
**WHAT THEY ARE**
This toy is basically eggs that come in a plastic container (which looks like an egg box).When you open it inside there are 6 eggs which break open and inside there are 6 different coloured chicks. When you press down on the chicks they make a chirping sound. This toy is suitable for children aged 12 months upwards.
**WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE**
It is a brightly coloured yellow egg box with 6 white eggs inside with different coloured faces and chicks. Each egg is a nice size for tiny hands to handle.
**WHAT THEY DO**
What I like about this toy is that it can be used in so many ways. The 6 eggs come in a brightly yellow coloured box which has Tomy inprinted on the front of it. There is a sturdy clasp which took my daughter a while to figure out how to open.
Inside this box (which I think is great for storing these eggs) is 6 cute little eggs which can be broken open.
On the top part of the eggs each one has a different face. This ranges from what I feel is happy, content, scared, sleepy, angry and cheeky. I use the faces to try and teach my daughter different moods. Each face is a different colour.
When you take the top part of the egg off (cracking open your egg so to speak) inside a different coloured chicks. Now the colour of the top part of the eggs face match the chicks colour and the facial expression also matches. This I feel is a fun way to help my daughter learn colours and matching up the same colour.
You can press down on the chicks and they will cheap my daughter loves doing this and thinks it is very funny.
Another thing is that underneath each egg is a shape and each shape has a certain place in the box. So its also a shape sorter for your little one to work out. There is a heart, triangle, star, square, cross and a circle for your child to learn how to sort into the box. If you put the wrong egg into the wrong space it will not fit correctly.
This toy costs me around £5 from Amazon and I have to say it was a great buy and there is so many educational values to this toy. Also I think they are very cute.
Apart from using them as a toy on their own my daughter has found additional uses for them. She puts them into her pots and pretends she is cooking her eggs to eat. This has meant that this toy has been used for different purposes for a long time.
I have found that this toy is very durable and will not break easily as my daughter has flung them about a lot just like all children do.
I feel that they are great value for money and good for co-ordination and brain develop as they challenge your child to figure out what colours goes with what, what shapes go where and different faces. It is one of the toys that I am very happy with my purchase and feel that it was money well spent.
Summary: a great all rounder toy
