My grandchildren spend quite a bit of time over my house, and I like to refer to it as “Granny’s Daycare.” With two young grandchildren under the age of 3, I’m always looking for fun, educational toys and activities to keep them busy.
When my own daughters were younger, I was very selective in the types of toys that I preferred to keep them enlightened and entertained. Whether rewarding them with a new toy for good behavior, or choosing something as a gift, my husband and I wanted a toy that was safe and well-constructed.
I’m excited to recommend that I had the opportunity to review the Clipo Hippo by Playskool, from Hasbro.
The Clipo Hippo has been awarded the 2009 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award.
The Clipo Hippo encourages your little one to build a variety of colorful creations by using their imagination with the interlocking, peg-covered CLIPO parts. The Clipo Hippo can be rolled around on wheels, or used as a stand-along toy. The main body of the toy is purple, and has adorable big eyes that my granddaughter really likes! She can “feed” it blocks by opening the hippo’s mouth. What’s nice is that the blocks are a good size, very important when young children are playing with this toy!
There’s also a storage area to store the blocks in. The Hippo is a very “hands-on” toy and make different creations each time. Your child can attach blocks to the Hippo’s back, or to its wheels.
I especially like the Clipo Hippo because when playtime is over, all the pieces can neatly be placed in the storage area.
Important features include:
- Colorful hippo toy encourages little ones to build all sorts of creations while interlocking the peg-covered CLIPO blocks to each other – and to the hippo!
- Hippo’s mouth opens wide – blocks store inside!
- Rolling wheels for on-the-floor fun.
- Hippo comes with 20 CLIPO parts.
- Recommended for Ages 18 months and up.
- Approximate Retail: $20.99
If you’re looking for just the right, Birthday or holiday gift for your child, grandchildren or special young person, this is the perfect item! I also recommend it for any Homeschooling Moms or Daycare providers!
Available at online and other major retailers.
