Blippi Toys - Newly Launched *Review*

{Gifted items}. Hands up....who has a Blippi fan in the house? I do, I do! My daughter absolutely loves Blippi and would spend hours watching him if she could. 

Now for those of you who are wondering..... who on earth is Blippi? Blippi is a popular You Tube star that creates bright, colourful and educational videos for children from around 2 years old to 5 years old (ish). Once you've heard theme tune it will be forever grained in your brain! We were recently sent a bunch of goodies to review as a whole load of fabulous merchandise has recently dropped at leading retailers, head on over to Smyths Toys to have a look at some of the range available. The items arrived in a Blippi themed colour blind box and Elarna was so excited to see what was inside!

Packaged in Blippi's iconic colours Elarna couldn't wait to open it up and have a look. There is a wide variety of new merchandise and toys available for the Bliipi fan in your house and range from around £9.99 upwards. They toys range from small items like the blind bag ball pit surprise to the plush buddy Blippi toy.

Inside we discovered a whole range of Blippi fun, one thing that I noticed that most of the items had an educational spin to them also. We had a dress up set which will encourage imaginative play and role play, some Blippi educational vehicles which are great for learning to play independently. There was also lots others so please read on!

Elarna is really good at playing independently as well as with other children but she was delighted with these little cars that she could push around and make little stories up with them, they are brightly coloured and the perfect size for those little hands.

Next up we had the item that Elarna was THE most delighted with. A my buddy Blippi plush toy. OH my goodness I can't tell you how much she loves this toy, he has to be tucked in next to her at night and she genuinely just loves it so much! The Blippi buddy features 15 recognisable sounds and phrases by squeezing his tummy! To be honest I found it a bit irritating but I guess I would as an adult, for a 4 year old however it's the best thing ever! I would say out of all the items this was her favourite and an absolute winner!

Also included in the box was learning numbers set. This little set consists of cardboard cubes with blind bags hidden inside as well as a little Blippi model. Inside each of the blind bag is an item that can then be used to help with numbers and counting. I have to admit I found the items inside the boxes a little bit odd, I wasn't quite sure how they would help with numbers as such but I guess you can use them to learn counting up to 9 or for simple addition and subtraction with the items, Elarna enjoyed playing with them and they are of a nice size for reception aged children. The cardboard blocks are also numbered and can be used to stack and play simple number games with but will not last that long due to thin cardboard that they are made of.

We were also sent some blind ball pit surprise balls, these toys are so popular at the moment and children just seem to love them! I won't spoil what is inside them but as pocket money gifts these are great little items. 

Overall these toys will be loved and adored by Blippi fans. I like the educational aspect and the toys are of good quality. They vary in price which means there are plentiful options for parents to choose from. They are very much loved in our house and Elarna has been delighted to receive them, especially the Blippy buddy, he has been everywhere with us! As mentioned above these are available from leading retailers although I think they have been pretty popular as certain items are sold out from some retailers! Keep your eyes open though as I'm sure they will be restocked soon. 

Do you have a Blippi fan in your house? Would your children loves these toys?

* Please note we were kindly sent the items free of charge in exchange for a review, all thoughts are my own.
