I really have a lot of fun looking for inspiring developmental toys for my daughter – I think I love the new toys we come across as much as she does!  Our favorites so far have been shape sorters, wooden puzzles, and blocks.  Watching her expression when she figures out what she’s supposed to do with the toys is priceless, I love every moment.  :-)

When I was given the opportunity by Buckle Toys to review one of their Buckle Turtles, I was delighted!  I really think interactive-type toys are the best.  I remember having a stuffed animal when I was a kid that had lots of little features: velcro, a shoe to tie, a button, and a buckle.  It was simply awesome to me.

About Bucky the Buckle Turtle:

Bucky is a soft, colorful plush turtle friend with quite a few fun features for your child.  He has a small pouch in his shell that opens and closes with a zipper, four different types of multicolored buckles, six colored shapes on his shell, and the numbers 1 through 10 on his front, revealed when all buckles are undone.  He is recommended for Ages 1-4.

Learning Opportunities:

Teach your children their shapes, colors, and numbers.

A Mom’s Thoughts:

We like this cute and colorful turtle and think he is a great distraction/challenge for long car rides, stroller rides, or just when Emma needs something to do.   He is bright and colorful, definitely appealing to small children, and I appreciate the incorporation of shapes and numbers as well.

One of the buckles was a bit too hard for my almost-two-year-old to unbuckle herself, but that didn’t bother us at all.  I’m sure she’ll get better at is as time passes.  Until then, she gets help with that one buckle.

One thing we really like about this toy is that he can be attached to the stroller, car seat, or high chair.  He also has a small zipper pouch (his shell) that you could put pacifiers or small things like that into.

Check out the action photos below… I loved watching her expressions as she played with him – she was so focused!
