Now that Princess P is starting to get older she is noticing toys more and more. Which is a plus for me because she is learning to play on her own. But, the interest in one toy usually doesn’t last long and then she is on to the next. So I was excited to see her reaction to the Peek-Squeak Dog and the Snuggle Pods Hunny Bunny from Manhattan Toy.
Manhattan Toy was founded in 1979 by Francis Goldwyn. It was set apart by other toys companies because of its use of non-traditional fabrics in toy design and new body styles in soft toys. Goldwyn is no longer involved in the ownership of Manhattan Toy, but today they still remain true to his vision. At Manhattan toy they believe fun is essential to a child’s development. “Our design process blends science and whimsy to produce toys that offer children a rich array of visual and tactile stimulation and unlimited opportunities for imaginative exploration.”
As soon as I saw the Peek-Squeak Dog I knew it was going to be a hit with Princess P! It has so many features for her to explore. I even enjoyed finding out what it was capable of! I sat it down in front of her and she immediately reached for it, grabbing the rattle attached to its paw first. She shook it and then discovered the brightly colored rings attached to its other paw. From there she explored the Peek-Squeak Dog’s crunchy ears, squeaky foot, peek-a-boo play and different fabrics. Then she found it! Her favorite thing of all. The cleverly hidden tethered bone. Part of it went in her mouth and stayed there for the next 15 minutes! She absolutely loves chewing on that thing! So now whenever we take long trips in the car the Peek-Squeak Dog has to go with us. It keeps her quite and entertained the entire way.
I wasn’t quite sure if she would have the same attraction to the Snuggle Pods Hunny Bunny as she had to the Peek-Squeak Dog. I gave her the Snuggle Pod and she instantly noticed that the sleeping baby comes out of the bunny pod. She pulled the baby out and starting tossing her around. She did play with the baby for awhile but then lost interest. I think this will be a big hit when she gets a little older. Although, the Snuggle Pods Hunny Bunny would be perfect to cuddle with. Both the baby and the pod have a super soft velvet exterior. And the pod also has a satin lined interior.
