It’s no secret that I love VTech toys. They’re just so robust – and educational … but mainly robust.
With four kids here, I need toys that are built to last, because you just never know when said toy will become a missile launched off a balcony, or at a wall … or at a siblings head. Just look at Dukie up there with that Toot-Toot Animals Horse, you know that horse is about to put through it’s paces in an aggressive fashion, right? LOOK AT HIS FACE!
Look, in my experience, VTech toys are the goods. I love the tech toys like the Kidizoom range of cameras and recommend them to anyone who asks, I love the educational toys and I love the toddler toys. They last.
The Toy Cull Test
You know how I know a good toy? Because every now and then the toy situation in this house gets too much – go figure – and I, armed with garbage bags, boxes for charity, storage tubs and a label maker, dive in with a heart full of culling ambition.
I get brutal.
If a toy so much looks like it’s going to be a pain in the arse … it goes.
If a toy shows signs that nobody has ever even touched it … it goes.
If a toy looks like at some point in the near future it’s about to break … it goes.
If in doubt – chuck it out.
You know what never goes? The VTech stuff. And that there is why I love them, and why I’m happy to spend money on them. Ain’t nobody got time for crappy toys.
