competition days out toddler toy review

Elefun & Friends giveaway

A couple of weeks ago the children and I were invited along to the Rainforest Cafe to find out more about four new toys in the Elefun & Friends range aimed at preschoolers from Hasbro. The toddler had his face painted like a giraffe (his favourite animal) and they both had a lovely time, playing with the toys and making lots of new friends.

Elefun and Friends Collage

The motorised Elefun blows colourful butterflies through his trunk and kids have to use their catching skills to grab them with a special butterfly net. The toddler absolutely adored this game and has been having lots of fun with it at home. The butterflies are the perfect size for him and I love watching him run around trying to catch them.

It’s a bouncin’, snackin’ barrel of funwith the new Elefun Snackin’ Safari game! Preschoolers will love getting active and playing with Elefun’s springy trunk to sniff out ‘snacks’. Just pick your colour, set up your home base and grab Elefun’s trunk to start bouncing it on the ‘snack tokens’ and collecting all manner of tasty treats. Be quick – the player or team with the biggest pile of snacks wins! For an extra bonus game, just change the rules – the winner is the player who manages to sniff out Elefun’s Golden Tutti Frutti cake! Elefun Snackin’ Safari includes two Elefun Snackers, 15 “snack” cards that brings the world of Elefun and Friends to life for their preschool friends.

Join HoneyPotamus and the rest of the hippos for a gobblin’good time! Hungry Hungry Hippos is a bit of a classic. The toddler found this game a bit difficult as he’s not too hot on sharing but you must try and gobble the balls, the one with the most balls wins!

Putt the ball into Gator’s mouth & if it’s a perfect shot he’ll flip the ball back. Gator Golf took a bit of hand and eye co-ordination but the toddler finally got the idea!

Prices range from £14.99 – £17.99
