LEGO CLASSIC DOORS AND WINDOWS REVIEW (10703)

All was fine until I stepped on a Lego! Ouch! It was as painful as it was fun playing all this while with our all new Lego Creative Builder Box that we received recently thanks to Modern Mama India.

WonderBoxx Review: Monthly subscription box for kids

Wonderboxx Review
Wonderboxx Review

This has been long pending thanks to the bout of illness that took over my household last month. Now that all is well, we finally opened the Wonderboxx and voila! I have a happy toddler that can’t take her hands off the various activities included in the box.

So, what is WonderBoxx?  It’s the answer to ‘how to keep your kids busy?’ It’s an age-specific hands-on learning tool-kits for 1 to 8 year olds. You can buy a subscription of Wonderboxx suiting your child’s age and every month you get a box with toys, books and activities based on a particular theme at your doorstep.

Madrat Todzzle: Finally, a puzzle that could keep my toddler hooked!

Madrat Todzzle review
Madrat Todzzle review

Mumma: Hiya, let’s see what is this.
H: Ok. Mamma. Wow… nice!
Mumma: Chalo, make a train out of this. Mumma will watch.
H fiddles with it for 2 mins. Checks out the battery slot (if available), looks out for wires that she can  tug and pull. (If any)
(Leaves it after 2..3.. or max 5 minutes.)
H:
Mumma, you make, Hiya will watch!  (Spralws on the sofa balancing her head on her tiny elbow)
Mumma: Faints

So, that’s a typical scene in our house every time I introduce my girl to a new toy with a hope that it will manage to hold her attention a little more that 4-5 minutes. But, my chatterbox is more interested in playing with people (read , mumma, papa, nani playing her patients and students.) However, the all new Todzzle, by MadRat games could finally do some magic and got H hooked! Yes, she totally loves it.

What is Todzzle?
Todzzle is an interesting magnetic puzzle for kids aged 2-4. Brought to you by MadRat games, this puzzle can be fixed on your fridge/ almirah and while you do your work, your little one puts his brain to the right use solving the puzzle.

We received the Cars and Planes themed Todzzle for review. Though my 2.5 years old is alien to the concept of the review but she knows that anything packed is a ‘gift’ and she loves ‘gift.’ So, while opening it, she was excited and I kept my fingers crossed.

Mumbai rains are playing hide and seek these days. But we all know pleasant showers will be back soon.

They are kids and for them, fun can never stop. So, here’s a big list of activities that promise a great deal of entertainment for your kids without stepping out of the cozy indoors…

Educational toys: Doll that gets sunburned if not applied sunscreen, any takers?

Nivea

Nivea has developed a doll that teaches your kids the importance of applying sunscreen. Made with UV-sensitive material, when exposed to sun without sunscreen, the doll turns red just like our skin reacts to sun.  The doll will be safe if it has been lathered with sunscreen. Do you think such a doll should be invented in India also? Would you buy it?
