5.0 out of 5 stars10/5 stars!! Crowd pleaser, favourite toy!
Reviewed in Australia on 1 April 2020
This is my daughter's favourite toy. We bought them for her at 10 months old, she is nearly 14 months now & it is still the first toy she rushes to. They are definitely worth the buy! I even ended up buying some for my niece of the same age & she adores them just as much. Could not speak more highly of them!
The toy eggs are as described. They keep my 10-month-old entertained for quite a bit before she leaves them behind. However, very disappointed to have been given a damaged box. The top appears to have a spot that has melted. It's not something you can clean or wipe away. Couldn't be bothered to return as we were taking this along for a trip.
I have been pleased with these Tomy Toomies Hide And Squeak Eggs so far. We purchased this for our toddler to avoid her constantly asking for the eggs in the fridge and have found them to be quite a multi-functional toy.
Initially she used to just play with them as a shape sorter and would try to fit them back in the tray. Then she started noticing the colours on the egg tops and started arranging them so they matched too. If you press the eggs they also make a squeak sound although it does take more force then it should.
One major issue is the fact that little ones will not be able to open the egg tray themselves due to the latch design of it. It often means that my little one cannot play with it independently.
Overall though, its a good toy to have and I find my little one returns to it from time to time, even if it only entertains her for a short period of time.
For all the hype, I wasn’t that impressed. My one year old expressed some interest but wasn’t too into these (stacking cups win every time). They also seem a bit fiddly (a lot of work picking them up and putting back into the box), design is a little basic and I was expecting more from the sound “feature” - they all make the same faint squeak. I’m sure they will get used! But I expected something more thoughtful I guess.
It’s good toy for a price and I can see my little one enjoying it more and more as she grows. 4 stars as the toy seemed to have some stains on when I got it out of box, nothing quick wash wouldn’t sort out but still bit annoying as you pay for new toy. I think someone might have given to baby play with and then changed their mind and returned the item. I just couldn’t be bothered sending it back for a exchange and waiting till getting new one. Otherwise good toy for baby’s.
Great toy which teach toddlers colours and shapes..
.That said it could be bit better made - couple of the eggs are not as squeaky as the rest. In addition - it would be better if each eggshell would fit individual eggs but instead it doesn’t matter where they are allocated - they will fit regardless which would increase the whole teaching kids how to fit shapes / colours.
Bought for my grandson's 1st birthday and didn't open and check the toy before giving it to him, but he loves it! I can't comment on the sturdiness or durability but he is still playing with them one year later. My grandson's mum tells me he enjoys playing with this toy.
It was surprising to us that the child(1year old) really enjoys them. The bad (the shorter one): * the squeezing, the moving mechanic, kind of broke down. When you push them they got stuck in the squeezed position and a grown-up has to fix it every time. The good: * after dishwashing them twice they keep their colors, only the white shells have a glance of a pink nuance. * they are strong at least as a lego* is. It hurts similarly when you step on them. * the kid loves eating them. The plastic is solid colored therefore there is no fear in eating the paint - there is no such * the kid loves "opening" the eggs' shells, although they are not attached in any way, it's fun for the kid
This is currently my 7 month old daughter's favourite toy. She will play happily with these for at least 20 minutes, which is some feat given her short attention span.
Ideal for babies who have just started sitting up unaided and beyond, the beauty of them is that their use will grow as your baby does. Currently, my daughter enjoys taking the eggs apart, examining them, bashing them together and scattering them around the room. In time, this works as a shape sorter (the bases of each egg have various shapes on them).
I have taken a star off only because they do make a mess - 13 separate bits that need to be picked up and reassembled. I haven't yet trodden on an egg with bare feet, but I can't imagine it would be pleasant. However, the egg box closes securely which makes this a great toy to bring to Granny and Grandpa's - no fishing around in the bottom of the bag for all the pieces.
Very well made product! Looks beautiful too. But squeaking as isnt particularly exciting. My 18m old really not sure what to do with them other than throw them around the place. We have had them for a while now and he really isn’t interested at all.
My 9 month old daughter has enjoyed tipping the eggs out of the box and bashing the lids together. She is clearly enjoying discovering the different shapes and colours and they have kept her occupied for quite a while compared to other toys for the same price - however, it says on here that they are suitable from birth - and yet the packaging says that they are for 12months and above - which means I am paranoid about letting her play with them without my complete attention as she is only 9 months...I simply wouldn't have purchased them if I'd have known this. The 'squeak' the eggs are supposed to give is barely audible - it is just made by air passing through a small gap, so a feeble whistle really... I doubt she even notices it happens when you push them down... so again was left disappointed on that one... but I can't deny that she DOES like playing with them! Since writing the above section, my daughter is now 19 months, and I have to admit they have been a great toy during this time...so I felt the need to amend my previous 3 star review. I have since bought 3 more for friends babies, since I realise now what an invaluable toy this has become, holding her attention more than the majority of toys she has. It is a really good price for the amount of playtime she has had out of them.
Nice toys but so many pieces. I had to find them around at all the time. I bought fot mu 1 year old son but he wasn’t so interested in it. I put them away snd will give him maybe after his secind birthday. He will probably know the eggs and he will like it. Nice quality and nice strong box to keep them in and store.
