Christmas is coming and with it the panic of what on earth to buy your preschooler. Luckily, I am here with a review of two brand new PAW Patrol electronic toys that will be make the perfect Christmas gift for your child aged between two and four! Count with Marshall and Ryder’s Alphabet Pad are two fantastic little electronic toys that stimulate learning and don’t cost the earth either – winner!
Both my four year and (nearly) two year old are PAW Patrol mad. We cannot leave the shops without a PAW Patrol figure or vehicle in hand. So, when these two PAW PAtrol electronic toys turned up, they were both over the moon!
PAW Patrol Count with Marshall Review
The PAW Patrol Count with Marshall electronic toy has 10 interactive play coins which help to develop counting skills plus colour and number recognition. It comes already equipped with batteries (3xAAA) and retails for £19.99.
What does the PAW Patrol Count with Marshall do?
Marshall asks the child to identify a coin (by its number, colour or objects on it) and insert into the truck. Very cleverly, the toy knows which coins have been inserted and can react accordingly. Pop in the wrong coin and Marshall chirps, “Never mind, try again!”
Your child can choose between counting or colour recognition games which helps them develop their counting and listening skills.
What age is the PAW Patrol Count with Marshall suitable for?
This product is marketed at those aged 3 or over, however both boys absolutely loved playing with the toy. The coins are chunky enough for Felix (at nearly two) to pick up and insert and I felt it was great for his motor skill development. Felix is very close to being able to recognise and say colour names, so I feel like this is a great toy to complement the learning we are doing with him around that.
Dexter loved the toy too. I thought he might feel it is a bit young for him, but he especially enjoyed playing the recognition games.
Where can I buy the Count with Marshall electronic toy?
Count with Marshall is available from Argos and retails for £19.99. An absolute bargain Christmas present/stocking filler!
PAW Patrol Ryder’s Alphabet Pad Review
Next up, is the PAW Patrol Ryder’s Alphabet Pad. This has been the perfect toy to complement Dexter’s recent learning of phonics having started reception last month! This product does not come with batteries, unlike the Count with Marshall toy, but takes 3xAAA.
What does the PAW Patrol Ryder’s Alphabet PAd do?
Ryder’s Alphabet Pad has three different activities with question on letters, sounds and words including:
- What letter does xxx start with?
- Can you find xxx
This PAW Patrol electronic toy has really built on Dexter’s knowledge and seeing him fly through the questions makes me realises how much he’s learnt in such a little time at school!
What age range is the PAW Patrol Ryder’s Aphabet Pad suitable for?
This electronic toy is suitable for ages 3+. Felix likes pretending to play with toy, but at nearly two, he is simply too young to understand and answer the questions. Dexter however is the perfect age and I wish we’d had this earlier to start work with phonics before going to school.
Where can I buy the Ryder’s Alphabet Pad?
PAW Patrol Ryder’s Alphabet Pad is available from Argos and retails for £17.99.
What did we love about these PAW Patrol electonic learning toys?
- Both toys are really educational, it really feels as if both boys are learning when playing with these!
- Fantastic price of less than £20 for each product.
- Both toys felt pretty durable which is great for the price.
- Each product promotes hand-eye coordination and develops gross motor skills.
Are PAW Patrol electronic toys the perfect Christmas gift for preschoolers?
Yes! I think both these PAW Patrol electronic toys will make great Christmas gifts for children aged between two and four!
