The most important one is that the best kind of toys are the ones that offer a wide variety of skills and uses. Edushape Ladybug Sorter does just that! This post is a sponsored post, but all opinions, stories, and my experience are all personal and true (like always)!

About:

My Thoughts:

The beauty behind this toy is that it can be used just about anywhere. It can be used on the floor, on the table, in the bathtub, or in the kiddie pool. Outside of the ability to be used on multiple surfaces it also has multiply education values. It is perfect for practicing fine and gross motor skills.

DiscoRobo – Fun Radio and Robot For Eevryone

DiscoRobo is back with even more fun.  DiscoRobo is TOSY Robotics fun, dancing to the music robot.  The little guy can dance to any music played or even hand clapping, beatbox, drum beats, or foot steps- although the best is music with a lot of bass in it.  It is great fun watching the little guy shake and move on the floor or on his radio.  In addition to the regular dancing DiscoRobo can do, there is also a special headstand where he can do said headstands and breakdancing moves.  This is interesting as well, but DiscoRobo shines as an on the floor dancer.  His face changes to the music as well, completing the scene for a dancing robot in your living room.

discoroboThere is also a way to interact with DiscoRobo via his app, available for iOS, Android and Windows.  This app lets you chat with and commend the robot to do as you wish, within its capabilities.  Pretty much dancing.  If you get more then one DiscoRobo, together the two can also chat with each other.
