Recently when Monkey was poorly, in the midst of his ‘middle of the night temperature’ he answered Daddy’s question to me of ‘what time is it?’ with ‘it’s time for lunch!’ He is a big fan! But to be honest the biggest fan of Bubble Guppies in the house is Mouse! She absolutely loves it, the characters, the songs, well…everything about it!
The best thing of all is that there is a fantastic toy range from Fisher price to go with the show!
The Rock and Roll Stage is a playset that is great for fans. It is what it says, it is a stage where Molly is the main star as she slides down to join the stage and set the music going! There is a rock lobster, a drum kit and a microphone to add to it and it is great! It is very easy to assemble, it took Daddy about 5 minutes and it seems sturdy enough to last the play.
It is suitable for 18 months plus, I will be honest i am not sure how long it will keep Mouse (at three years old) entertained but I know a just 2 year old that will be happy to play with it over and over and over again! It is a great toy – just wish I had found it a bit sooner!
Molly also comes as a bath toy in the form of the ‘Splash and Surprise Molly’. Molly is a doll with a posable tail to help her swim through the water! Her hair also changes colour! Again this toy is suitable for 18 months up and I think the love for her will just keep on going! She is beautiful, well made and totally loveable!
It is hard to find bath toys for the slightly older child, Molly however is perfect for Mouse, she comes with a starfish to pour water and a little microphone comb too. There is a lot of play potential and fun to be had too.
There is only one thing I didn’t like about Molly and that was to do with the packaging! The hair was in a plastic strip and it worried me when opening that I was going to damage the hair. However the hair was fine and it certainly didn’t alter the playability!
The bubble guppies range is fantastic and really compliments the TV show! Any little fan will love the toys, I know that Molly will be part of the family for a while to come!
So, I guess the question is, would we recommend the toys? The answer is yes, I would perhaps pick the Rock and Roll Stage for a slightly younger child (although this is no bearing on the quality). The Molly Splash and Surprise is a definite long term feature here, perfect for mouse and I love to brush her hair too!
Check out the rest of the range – I am sure there is a hit for everyone!
