Ocean Animals Cookware and Dinosaur Adventure Review (iPlay, iLearn)

Ocean Animals Cookware and Dinosaur Adventure
What It Is

Play is always more fun when animals are around. Kids can pretend to cook alongside animal-themed cookware with the Ocean Animals Cookware set. It comes with realistic cooking tools that you'd expect, such as a pretend knife set, a cutting board, a spoon, a spatula, and play food, but this themed set also features a crocodile frying pan, a shark sauce pot, a whale kettle, and a crab pressure cooker. Place them on the pretend gas stove and turn the stove on for lights, sounds, and music. Open up the side of the stove to remove the pretend gas canister. As kids cook, they can pretend to cut apart the play food thanks to each piece's Velcro break-away feature.

Kids can go on a train ride with dinosaurs when they play with the Dinosaur Adventure set. Kids are in control of the action as they guide the two train cars through different obstacles and challenges. There are four switch levers on the base for kids to turn, pull, or press to make things on the train track lift up or rotate. Kids must figure out which lever to activate in order to help the trains move along. For instance, open the gate, send the train down a ramp, turn the train in a different direction, and lift the train up to the second level so it can ride down and do it all over again.

Is It Fun?

The Cookware set is such a fun way for kids to explore and pretend to do things they've seen Mom and Dad do in the kitchen. The lights and sounds of the stove add more realism to the play, enhancing the roleplay.

Dinosaur Adventure is a cute toy for dinosaur lovers and train fans. Plus, it's a great way for kids to work fine motor skills and use problem-solving skills.

Who It’s For

Both of these toys are for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The Cookware set requires two AA batteries, which are not included.

For Dinosaur Adventure, we sometimes had to give the trains a little push to keep them moving along the track, especially when going over the bridge. You also have to be gentle when lifting the dinosaur elevator or the train will fly off.
