Born to Play Bob The Builder Friction Dizzy
Advantages: No batteries required, durable.
My son has had Dizzy since he was around 16 months old, long before he had any idea who Bob the Builder was....to be honest, he's now 2 and still not a massive Bob fan - but he is a massive vehicle fan so this ticks all his boxes regardless!
Dizzy is a lovely, cheerful simple cement mixer! She has 4 plastic wheels, happy headlight eyes and a smiley grill mouth. She also has 'ears', though I'm not sure what these are supposed to be! The best bit about Dizzy is her spinning 'tummy'. The bowl of the mixer spins round, making a great clicking noise as it does. You can spin it manually, just by rotating the mixer with your hand, or it can be turned using the wheel on the rear of the vehicle, which also has a handle to make it easier.
Dizzy is a fantastic little toy. She doesn't need batteries, is easily cleaned if necessary and is extremely durable. We picked her up second hand and my son has played with her a lot, yet apart from a few scratches she still looks like new....although she doesn't move very well on her own anymore, but this doesn't seem to bother my son. Not all toys need to have a billion features to be a success!!
The official age range for this toy is from 36 months, it is held together by screws so I imagine this is why they are being cautious. But I was never concerned about my little boy playing with it from a much younger age, it is extremely robust and there are no small parts that are likely to fall off.
Summary: A great little toy!
