Round Table Toys Review & Giveaway

I love when I can find one toy that both my children enjoy and fits the age requirements for both. Talk on the Farm is that kind of toy. It arrived from Round Table Toys and my 3 year was ready to try it out. We installed 3 AA batteries in the truck and turned it on. My 3yr pushed it along the mat and stayed occupied, listening to the sounds and following directions.


My 1yr was asleep and had no idea brother was playing with a new toy but, as soon as he heard the noise, he was ready to play. They both played and big brother showed the little one how drive the truck through the farm. I liked how they learn the animals and sounds. It a great hands on education developmental toy. I like they they are problem solving following directions. The Play mat measures 27.5 x 36 (69.8cm x 91.4cm) and that is a good size for play with 2 boys. Talk on the Farm Toy Mat is for ages 12 months through 6 years old and it's an Alex toy.


Round Table Toys have alot of other toys and I could easily fill under my tree. I really like the Z-Curve Bow, I wanted to try it bad cause it looks like so much fun. My boys ain't quite the age for that one but, I was thinking it may be nice to get two. One for my husband and one for me to chase each other :)
