The Playskool Elefun & Friends Shapes 'n Colors Turtle is a touch-activated toy that introduces kids to colors and shapes and engages them with sounds and music. There are four modes of play: shapes, colors, music, and follow-me mode. The rounded shape of the turtle allows it to wobble around on the floor, which encourages babies to crawl after it. Toddlers will like engaging with this toy by tapping the colors and exploring all the options.
While the touch-activated feature is pretty cool, the response time of the touch areas is not always consistent. Additionally, there is no volume control on this toy, and we found the sound to be fairly loud. Overall, we found this toy to be inconsistent with its touch feature, and the cause-and-effect lesson could potentially be lost if nothing happens when kids tap the colors.
The Playskool Elefun & Friends Shapes 'n Colors Turtle is for ages 6 months and up.
The Playskool Elefun & Friends Shapes 'n Colors Turtle includes three AA batteries for the in-store try-me purposes, and it's recommended that you replace them for best results.
