Playmates is rolling out an entire line of toys dedicated to the Nickelodeon hit TV show for tweens and teens iCarly. Playmates Toys brings an exciting toy line to the forefront with licensee Nickelodeon, the network most watched by kids. Winner at 2009 Kids Choice Awards of “Favorite TV Show”, top-rated live-action show on Nickelodeon, and follows the life of the star of her own web show.
Playmates sent me a few of the items to sample.
Of course this is not the demographic that my kids are in, but they love a remote, and a remote that makes all of these fun sounds is impossible to keep out of their hands. I have a feeling that fans of the show will love the remote too. Tweens still have a little bit of imagination in them and love to re-enact things they see on TV.
My kids don’t get to watch this show. I’ve seen it because I’ve previously reviewed the iCarly show and it has been on at my cousins house. I know how so many kids are into the internet and this show brings it all together for them and makes it real. So having a toy line that helps support the show should bring in kids that are even younger than I would expect the tween age to begin. I thought my cousins were too young for a show like this, but what do I know, my kids are still just 2 and 3 and we don’t have cable. Let me know what you think of the show and if you think these toys would be a good fit for kids in your house?
Thank you to Playmates for allowing me to review these items, I will be donating them to a local charity so that the appropriate aged children will be able to play with them.
