She likes purple, building, stuffing, coloring, and using her imagination
He likes rolling, anything that makes noise, building, dumping and filling as all one year olds do.

Playskool sent my family Clipo Hippo for review quite a while ago. We have been playing with him for a quite a few months now and he’s wonderful. They have a hard time sharing him sometimes. Zoe is very attached because it’s purple and Miles loves that it rolls. They both love building stacking and fill and dump. Zoe’s starting to outgrow the dumping and that’s when she wants to take it away from her brother.
**Update, they can share him better now since he’s not so new****
The Clipo products seem to be new. It looks like they came out this year even.
CLIPO pieces let toddlers develop their creativity as they pile, stack, sort, and stick the colorful CLIPO™ pieces together. Specifically designed for little hands, the chunky, tactile pieces are easy to put together, and even easier to pull apart, giving your little one hours of stacking fun.
The recommended age is for 18 months plus but my 14 month old is doing just fine playing with them. He rolls it and chases it. They even fill it up and want to take it on car rides. They take turns holding him in their laps.
