Pocoyo is quite the hit among preschoolers – and if you haven’t yet spotted Pocoyo and friends, you can check them out on Nick Jr., Univision and PBS.
Pocoyo also just happens to have one of the coolest toys around this holiday season…..it’s already an award winner!
I’m talking about the new Pocoyo Swiggle Traks, created for children ages 18 months an up. Right from the start, one pretty much knows this toy would be a big hit with young kids because of the tracks. Doesn’t every kid love a track? 🙂 This isn’t just any ordinary track either.
The SwiggleTraks system features colorful, flexible track pieces that are simple to connect and easy to add onto, and comes with a motorized, musical Pocoyo vehicle, as well as a moving bridge that puts the exciting “swiggle” movement in SwiggleTraks.
The first thing I noticed immediately was that there were no instructions within the box. Not that it’s hard to figure out how to put everything together, but I thought this fairly unusual these days, as everything seems to have at least a simple piece of paper inside. Since there are many tricks and configurations shown on the box, I’ll probably cut part of the box out to keep (something I wouldn’t have to do if there was a small booklet included).
BUT….the lack of instructions certainly doesn’t take away from the fun of SwiggleTraks.
- 4 tracks
- One moving bridge
- 1 Pocoyo motorized vehicle with music
- 1 ball accessory
Batteries are not included. Motorized vehicle requires 2 AAA batteries and moving bridge requires 3 AA batteries.
As I said earlier, this isn’t your ordinary track. With the flexible system, the tracks move easily in many directions……just look at what you can create. Oh, I mean the kids! 🙂 It’s so colorful and it’s certainly set the stage to have SwiggleTraks create additional pieces that you can purchase to make even larger tracks. I look forward to adding to this.
While SwiggleTraks is good for even young children (ages 18 months and up), personally I think the younger kiddos would have a tough time fitting the track pieces together without the help of an adult or older child. It requires some strength and coordination fitting them together in the grooves, but it’s definitely great for fine motor skills, something kids need practice with as they grow.
This is a great toy……and I can certainly see why all the buzz and award nominations this year!
