I discovered these little gems back in January in the sales. I wasn’t sure whether or not I should buy any as we have so many toys in the house and my sons don’t really seem to play with toys like this. However, they were in the sales, and I saw them as being a great bargain, so I bought a couple. I am so glad that I did because these have rapidly become some of my baby’s favourite toys!
These figures are a perfect size; they aren’t too small so that they won’t be put into little mouths and they’re not too big either. Each character has a completely different personality to match with their individual look. They all have a button in the center of their belly and when you press them they light up, talk, say phrases and sing songs which my son absolutely loves! They’re really friendly and also educational.
As a mum, I love how imaginative each of the characters is, and I can see my son taken each one of them in. Over the years I have purchased numerous toys, all types of figures, playsets, soft toys, legos, imaginative play toys the list goes on, but these VTech Toot Toot friends are one of my all-time favourite toy purchases! I don’t think there would be many toddlers out there who wouldn’t enjoy playing them! There is a wide range of diverse characters that you can choose from.
Although you can buy these figures at various prices online and in retail stores, they usually sell for RRP £5.99-£9.99 per character. Although this seems a little steep for one figure, I would say that they are worth the purchase, even if you just buy the one! My son is always finding his Archie out, and he just walks around pressing his button and dancing to the song he sings. He never seems to get bored of it.
The only negative thing I have to moan about with this product is the battery life. It could be a lot better, maybe it’s because my son loves playing with them so much that the batteries I have gone, I’m not sure but this is definitely an area for improvement.
I rate the VTech Toot Toot Friends a full five stars!
