I was lucky enough to receive the Twirlywoos Fun Sound Big Red Boat for my grandson from Golden Bear Toys. Twirlywoos is a hit TV show on CBeebies and this boat features in the show.
When the boat arrived, my grandson was very interested in the bright red box with the pictures of the Twirlywoos that cover the box. It wasn’t hard to get the boat out of the box, which does sometimes happen with toys in boxes. He waited until the toy was out the box and was only shown once how to press the turret to listen to the quirky boat noises (there are 3 boat noises) and he pushed it along the floor to hear the sounds of the ocean. He played with it for the next fifteen minutes or so, but then lost interest.
I feel it is quite expensive at £14.99. As my grandson lost interest I’m not sure if it’s worth the money but it is a good quality and made from good solid materials. It requires 2x AAA batteries for the sound and these are supplied. Aimed at children from 18 months +. While my grandson only played with it for a little while, it does encourage imaginative play and help to develop hand/eye coordination.
