Boys toys are the hardest thing for me to find, and it is not so much that there are not boy toys but there are so many and not having ever played with boy toys in general and his ever changing mind of what is “cool” makes finding a toy that will be played with for longer then just a few days a challenge. When it comes to toys I want them to be more then just “there”, unlike my girls who can take anything from a barbie to a stuffed animal and have it go on a girly adventure with shopping or going to school my son enjoys toys that “do things” and have action already there.
The VTech Switch & Go Dinos cover everything that I look for in a toy for my son. They have the action “built it”, as in he can have them change from being a plane or a truck into a dinosaur and the play idea is right there for him. They are interactive, when in the shape of a truck or a plane you have a “driver” face on the screen that does the talking and in dinosaur form the dinosaur is the one talking to you (and the other Switch & Go Dinos). My son has been playing with them on a daily basis and has even been able to get the girls to play with him and really enjoys sharing with them “how you play with boy toys”. If you are like me and not “boy toy compatible” as I call it, don’t worry switching them from plane or truck into the dinosaur and back is super easy and takes just a few seconds. I love that they are durable, we had a little spat over who got to play with the plane and my youngest threw the plane on the hardwood floor and it was all still good to go (and I am sure hoping that the plane doesn’t fly like that anymore ;)).
