Magic Moves Review (Educational Insights)

What It Is

Magic Moves is an interactive toy from Educational Insights. Magic Moves features twinkling light shows, 26 musical styles, and 90 different physical commands to get kids up and moving. You can hit the repeat button to repeat the activity or press play again for a new activity. The On/Off switch features two different sound levels.

Is It Fun?

Magic Movies will work best in a classroom or camp setting as a group activity that gets all the children involved. In this kind of setting, kids will have fun mimicking different sounds and movements with friends, such as swaying like an elephant. It will also help children learn to follow directions and develop listening skills.

Who It’s For

Magic Moves is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

We really didn't understand the point of this toy. Young kids are really going to need an adult moderating the activity when it says things like "Wiggle like a worm." It's hard to imagine how a child could play with this independently. Perhaps in a daycare or preschool setting, it would be more appropriate, as noted, since these are fairly traditional activities in those environments.
