With three kids, our house and van can get pretty cluttered. We have so many toys with so many pieces! We have three backpacks that are full of toys and materials for church that we rotate every few weeks. For these reasons, I have long hoped for on-the-go toys that are just grab…and go, not toys that I have to search for all the parts and they are all strewn about in different rooms in our house. I have hoped for toys that are meant for taking with us to soccer practice, doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping, and the dreaded car pick-up line at school. Twenty minutes in a parked car with a toddler in a carseat sometimes feels like an eternity! I often take books for him, but the other day, Baby Brother ripped out a few pages before I could rescue the sad little book.
Playskool has listened to parents like me with ever-changing schedules with their new collection of lightweight, portable products. These time-saving solutions are great for travel and tough transition times, both for kids and their parents! Playtime can happen anytime with these grab and go toys! All of these toys can be easily compacted to stow inside strollers, diaper bags, purses, and some can even fit into a jacket pocket! Brilliant!
Yesterday, I tried out this little cute guy with Baby Brother in the pick-up line and it was a hit! Once I parked the car to wait for 15 minutes, I pulled out the Playskool Dressy Kids Boy and let Baby Brother play with it and he didn’t complain about having to sit there and wait! We also took the Boy to the store and to gymnastics and I know that he will be going many places with us. D even loved playing with him! The Dressy Kids Boy has different things to practice, such as a zipper, button, buckle, tie, and a hook and loop pocket to fasten. And the best part? There’s only one piece!
**Toys should not be played with in a moving car.**
Other Playskool on-the-go toys that we have been trying out include the fun Fold ‘N Go Busy Elephant, which is great for little babies who love to use all of their senses to explore new things. It folds up for grab ‘n go fun and is washable in case it gets dropped in the grocery store!
The Roll ‘N Gears Car and Stack ‘N Stow Cups are so simple to throw in a diaper bag and pull out while waiting for the doctor or trying to keep the baby entertained at siblings’ soccer practice or gymnastics class. All of these on-the-go toys are well thought out and easy to pack up and go.
My absolute favorite toy from the on-the-go line is the Stow Go Pop Up Shape Sorter. This toy is so cool! The shape sorter is actually collapsible so it can be easily stored and easily set up for lots of fun. The shapes pop apart, too, so there is more sorting fun to be had! I just love this thing and will be keeping it in the van for emergency toddler boredom times!
