OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Hasbro has toys to suit every stage of your child's development and interest, from Playskool toys that promote fine motor skills to dolls featuring favorite Disney Princesses.

With the Tap 'n Spin Toolbench, babies can practice motor skills at their very own workbench. There are four colorful play nails with the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 printed on the top. Each time baby hammers down on a nail, the nail goes down, pops another nail up, and makes the tape measure spin. The tape measure is filled with colorful numbers one through 10, as well as images of the sun, butterflies, and more. There's storage for the hammer right on the workbench.

Babies can play at home and on the go with the Stack 'n Stow Cups. This comes with seven colorful cups, but they all nest inside each other with a lion face cover to make it easy to bring them on the go. The lion's tail becomes a carry loop. Twist off the lion's face to remove all the cups and discover the different colors and shapes on each cup. Babies can stack from smallest to biggest or biggest to smallest on or off the lion base, working their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

For older kids, there's the Disney Princess Royal Clips Multipack. This set of seven Disney Princess figures includes Ariel, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Rapunzel, Moana, Tiana, and Cinderella. Each four-inch princess doll wears a glittery dress that clips on and off so that kids can mix and match the dresses among the dolls. The dolls can also sit or stand with poseability in the head and arms to offer a little more variety to the play.

Is It Fun?

Babies will love the cause-and-effect play of the Toolbench. The movement of the nails and spinner are visually stimulating, and hitting the nails with the hammer is great for fine motor skills. This toy on its own doesn't really teach babies numbers, but with parent participation, the toy becomes a tool for introducing babies to numbers.

The cups are another great way to help babies develop fine motor skills and boost curiosity and discovery. We like that the seven cups can be stored so compactly, making this super easy to throw in a diaper bag for play wherever you go.

And preschoolers will like the mix-and-match dress-up play with some of their favorite princesses. This set is a nice way to start a Disney Princess collection because it comes with seven dolls, and it will inspire a lot of imaginative play.

Who It’s For

The Tap 'n Spin Toolbench is for ages 1 and up.

The Stack 'n Stow Cups are for ages 9 months and up.

The Disney Princess Rainbow Collection is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Not gonna lie - putting the Stack 'n Stow Cups back together with the lion cover was a little tricky. It seems they have to be stacked in the base just right or the cover won't fit.

Even though the clip-on dresses are supposed to be easy to put on and remove, younger kids may still need adult assistance.
