***I was given this toy to review, but all opinions are my own.
My son’s birthday was a few weeks ago. Believe it or not it is actually hard to shop for him. He is in to cars, cars and more cars. I swear there isn’t a hot wheels or matchbox car we don’t have. Hence the problem. I was tired of getting cars for him. I LOVE the quality of the cars though. They don’t break ever (at least not yet) and very few toys now a days last though the end of the first week.
I am a frugal person, but not cheap. I will not buy a toy that feels cheap. There has been a few of those toys around and all are broken and I have had one sad boy on my hands (he actually takes good care of his toys so he gets upset when something breaks).
Then a few weeks ago I was asked if I would like to try a new toy. The toy? Vtech Switch & Go Dinos. I got Blister the Velociraptor. I know, I know it is not a car, but he does minor in other interests… Dinosaurs, Transformers, and because daddy LOVES helicopters he will play with them every once in a while too.
It was a HIT!! He LOVES this toy. It switches from Helicopter to Dino. It is VERY easy to transform from one to the other. My son is about 6 and it took him about 3 minutes to figure out how to transform it. He LOVES the sound effects on it. When it is on Dino mode it the ROAR sounds are very realistic. It also talks telling you info about Dinos in general, or just fun stuff. When it is transformed into a person it says a lot of different things (up to 70 different sounds and or words). You can pick what pilot you want or what dino eyes with a press of the button.
From a mom’s perpective I like that you can turn it on and off (it will do it on it’s own too, but takes a little time and it talks while it waits), there is volume control also. The toy itself is very well built. It is not a cheap plastic toy that will be broken by the end of the week. It is made with plastic, but you can tell the quality difference between this and other toys around the same cost.
It cost about $25 at the store which I think is a good price for the quality and what it can do. My son has either played with it or slept with it since we got it a week ago! I would defiantly recommend this toy!
If you know you all you would like to win one! Am I right?
Guess what I get to give one away to one lucky reader! Enter below
