Last time I went to the book store to pick out some books for Zoe and Miles and picked up a lot of bargain books. One of them was Olivia, I didn’t realize until we got home that the book was a Spanish reading book. The kids recognize Olivia and it’s fun to look at even though we don’t know Spanish, but now I know why it was on clearance and why there were 20 more behind it. . Olivia is too cute to pass up!
Olivia the cute pig from the storybooks you might read to your children, hopefully yours is in the language you can read and speak, is now featuring her own toy line. From the best-selling children’s book and hit Nick Jr. television show, Olivia inspires kids everywhere to think boldly and follow their dreams. Spin Master has taken Olivia’s bold personality and extraordinary imagination, and infused it into a collection of fun and creative toys for children ages 4 and up!
Zoe wasn’t exactly in the mood to help me review the toys today so as I was trying to capture a photo of her she snuck away out of the camera view. She all but threw a fit though when I told her it was time to put the Olivia the pig toys away. So here is our review!
The Olivia Plush:
The Olivia Plush is a line of dolls not just the one you see above. There are four dolls in the series all of them Olivia, but some of the Olivia Dolls are dressed up in costume. At Toys R Us, Olivia retails for 10.99. Olivia Basic Plush Doll – Olivia the Artist, Olivia Basic Plush Doll – Olivia the Artist, Olivia Basic Plush Doll – Cow, our favorite of course is Olivia Basic Plush Doll – Ball Gown. She is soft and cuddly and is great for creative play.
The 2 in 1 Transforming Playset is quite a playset. Since it comes with stickers, it’s a winner right off the bat, Zoe loves, loves loves stickers. I haven’t watched Olivia in quite a while, but I hear that the house is just like the one she lives in on TV, it also transforms into a pirate ship, and Zoe was all about opening up the house. The final selling point for our family would be that it has a handle and can be loaded up with all of the accessories and carried from location to location, perfect for kids that love to carry something around like mine do. Zoe has been loading a bag, box or purse since she was 18 months old.
The Olivia Plush and the 2-in-1 Transforming Playset are available at ToysRus, Target and Kmart! For more information on the new product line visit www.spinmaster.com.
