Miss Two is obsessed with colours, she cannot walk past any object these days without reciting the colour. She’s like a walking, talking traffic light, singing out the colours as she passes. Mr Tink and I are eager to encourage her, as so far she is showing that she’s not taking after either of us by proving to be quite academic. She thrives on learning, and at the rate she’s going, will be in university before she’s 3 (although it would have to be colour related…) anyway I’m getting off track here, back to the colours. As a parent, Mr Tink and I are constantly looking out for different objects to point out to Miss Two to test her, and recently we were tickled pink (another colour) to receive a surprise from our friends at VTech.
Inside the special brown (another colour) box was the new Stack & Learn Block set and wait for it… Each block was a different colour! We opened it green with envy (I’m getting out of control now) knowing we would soon be replaced with these magical blocks of colour by Miss Two. She would retire us both once she set her baby blues (sorry, just one more) on these babies. In true Miss Two fashion, she squealed with delight and bossily motioned for me to open her surprise box of wonder. As I peeled back the lid she let out a shrill “oooooh rainbow” – well actually it was more like “limebow” but you get the picture.
Miss Two immediately got to work counting blocks (yes, our baby genius can also count) and singing out the colours: “lue” blue, “greem” green (I’m hoping she never learns to say this one properly, I mean who doesn’t love greem?), “red”, “ellow” yellow, orange – and the skittles announcement kept on going. Once she had counted and sung out all the colours she would knock the blocks down and start again. This kept her occupied for quite some time until she noticed something she hadn’t seen… A cat! Miss Two loves cats almost as much as colours, and this cat not only sat proudly at the top of her colour tower, but it also teaches each block colour and number as well as sings 4 happy sing-along songs. Miss Two was in a world of joy – colours and a cat, what more could she want? Not much, as it turns out, because even weeks after arriving into our home the Stack, Store and Sort Tree is still Miss Two’s pride and joy. With the numbers printed on the outside, she’s slowly but surely starting to recognise her numbers also.
Yet another fab product from VTech that combines fun with learning. A big thumbs up to VTech, your toys never disappoint.
