BabyDino Chicco Talking Mechanic Review

BabyDino

BabyDino is your online baby shop with incredible brands at exceptional prices!


I was recently sent by BabyDino the Chicco Talking Mechanic for my son to test and review.




Chicco Talking Mechanic


  • £19.99
  • 2+years
  • requires 2 x AA 1.5v batteries(included)
  • Chicco Billingual ABC Range
Talking mechanic teaches children: the alphabet,numbers,shapes,colours along with tools and words associated with the job of a mechanic.

3 play modes

  • engine sounds,lots of engiene sounds to make play even more enjoyable.
  • learning songs,sound effects and phrases that invite toddlers to fix certain vehicle components.
  • quiz,entertaining sound effects riddles and quiz questions on colours,shapes,the alphabet and numbers.
Talking mechanic is bilingual, all the fun above,but discover new words and phrases,in french.a very easy and fun way to become familiar with the differant sounds of a foreign language.

My thoughts:


My lil boy absolutely loves cars so i knew he would enjoy this and i was not wrong,as soon as he saw it in the box his eyes lit up as soon as it was out of the box he jumped right onto it and has been playing with it constantly the past week i feel this will keep him entertained till at least 5 years of age,sadly its too big to take out and about as cant fit into a changing bag but its brilliant for keeping enertained at home,i also love how it teach french too.my only downfall was there was no volume control so when you have a son that will happily play for it for hours on end it would of been nice to put it onto a quieter setting!

Would i recommend?

Yes! a great  toy and very strong for the heavy handed kind of children offering lots of differant playing abilities.

Pipsy Koala Review

Pipsy Koala

Pipsy Koala is dedicated to bringing you reasonably priced,good quality,useful and effective products to help make life with your baby a little easier,because then you've got more time to spend having adventures together!

I was recently sent the Unisex changing bag and the Automatic nightlight.


 Unisex changing bag

  • £24.99
  • mini padded travel changing mat
  • large chunky,easy to use zip
  • bottle insulator which will fit wide neck bottles
  • hygienic messy bag
  • multiple pockets
  • wipe clean surface
  • changing bag dimensions: 30x15x40cms
Our thoughts:

First off my boyfriend loved how finally we had a changing bag he was not embarrassed to be seen carrying around with him,he loved the design and colour and how comfy it felt when wearing out.I personally was not 100% on the design i would of rather a lovely pattern/design to it(its a girl thing!) however it was very comfortable to wear it was lovely and big fit in all my sons nappies/wipes/drink/snacks/my bits ie purse/keys/hairbrush ect and also a spare set of clothes for my 4 year old-just in case.because it has a wide base with all the extra bits and bobs in i found it never tipped over,i loved the wetbag and removable changing mat perfect for when on the go,even though i no longer use bottles for my son i still found the bottle holder handy as my sons beaker cup fits in it so means it can hygienically be kept separably and also if his beaker should leak at any point at least i know my other stuff will have some form of protection.








Automatic nightlight
  • £8.99
  • fully automatic
  • soft flexible dome
  • 50,000 hours use
  • economical
  • no heat generated
  • 3 year guarantee
Safe and reliable with very low power consumption.(0.4 watt).
Using an LED means that the light has a life span of approx 50,000 hours and is extremely economical to run.the light generates no heat and is guaranteed for 3 years.



My son who will be 3 in may is really unsettled at night time no matter what we do he just wont sleep without the door ajar and the hallway light on-the downfall for us being that we cannot sleep as the light outside is too bright! we was in a no win battle until Pipsy Koala sent me one of their Automatic nightlights to review.

Our thoughts:

The Automatic nightlight is absolutely fantastic!!  just plus into a wall socket and do nothing more ,the light comes on itself when dark and when it is light outside it turns right back off again.
I love how it uses LED technology generates no heat so it poses no burning or fire risks when left on overnight.

definitely recommend my son settles a lot better at nighttime now and because he has a low he no longer wakes us if he wakes he just talks himself back to sleep again. Brilliant!
