A few weeks ago if you had asked me if my children would have been interested in a toy that encourages them to move (that’s not a football), I would have met you with a resounding ‘No’. If you had asked me whether I would like Monkey and Mouse to have anymore soft toys I would probably have said no too!
On the hands and feet of the Stretchkin there is elastic so they can be attached to the hands and feet. This goes on to encourage your little one to dance, wiggle, jump and Stretch and the toy moves along with them. We were sent two to give a test drive! Mouse and her ‘Douglas the Dog’ and Monkey and his ‘Ribberty the frog’ have entertained us for hours (so much so that it has been difficult to take pictures and they can’t stay still with them!). We have had exercise classes, dancing shows and just run jump and move like a crazy person.Both Monkey and Mouse love their new friends, they slip them on and pretend that the toys are leading them about, they compete to see how far they can stretch them (and from mummy’s point of view they are durable so won’t snap when stretched really far) and when they are sleepy they snuggle with them.The Stretchkins are really well made and are so cute! So do I want more cuddly toys in the house – if it is these ones, yes I do! Will the Monkey and Mouse go for a toy that encourages them to move……well, surprisingly yes and they will LOVE it! I would definitely recommend these for all children and with the ‘C’ word coming up, they are great gifts too!
The RRP os £19.99 which is great value for the hours of fun they provide and they are available at Argos, Amazon and Smyths.
