Tomy Pop to the Rescue

Advantages: Cheap, great fun, easy to use
Disadvantages: May prove repetitive to you...
I would like to write a review on Tomy Pop to the rescue because it has proved a success with our 22 month-old son at Christmas and he's not stopped playing with it since (well, apart from when he's asleep).
It comes in a bright yellow cardboard box which contains a little garage. The aim is to place the 3 cars (a green one, a red one and a blue one) into their space, which are colour-coded and place the 3 colour-coded people's heads on their respective garage roof.
Then you can show your little one how to play: just whack the little characters with the plastic hammer provided. The heads will fall into their respective cars and drive off.
Although it is battery powered (for sounds), I must admit we have not used batteries yet and our son is just happy whacking the characters and chasing them to put them back into the garage again and so on. No doubt he'll enjoy it even more when we use batteries.
It may not be everyone's cup of tea but our son loves it. And the clever boy (aren't we proud!) puts the heads back on the correct roofs according to their colours. So this is a good toy for learning to match colours.
The characters are very cute and made of sturdy plastic, which is just as well as they'll get knocked on the head many times!
I bought this from Home Bargains and it cost only £7.99.
I also saw it during the 3 for 2 sale in Boots where it cost £12 if I remember well.
I'd recommend it to boys (I don't have girls so I can't say whether they'd like it but they probably would) who like cars and hammers!
Summary: A fun toy which won't take much room either
