Team Mom sent us some Olivia toys. Are you familiar with Olivia? She is the adventurous pig famous for her books and now cartoon on Nick Jr. We are huge Olivia fans around this house. The kids think she is hilarious and most times I tend to agree. You can imagine how psyched they were when we were sent an Olivia 2-in-1 Transforming Playset and an Olivia 8″ Plush. Both toys are made by the great company, Spin Master.
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 age 4 and up.
The Olivia 2-in-1 Transforming Playset is a little like a dollhouse but one that you can open two different ways. The first is Olivia’s house and the second a pirate ship. The house comes with 23 accessories like a bed and a treasure chest but it also comes with a sticker sheet. You can basically decorate the house or ship with the stickers. Oh and the most important part… it comes with Olivia herself. The kids love this house because they can act out fantasies. The one thing I didn’t like… there weren’t any other characters. It would be nice if they had included her brother Ian or her friend Julian. Since I have two kids they are constantly fighting over the one character. The other bothersome thing was that some of the accessories are small. The plates for the tables are tiny. I’m constantly finding them around the house. I think Spin Master put an appropriate age range on this toy. Not a good toy for younger than 4. Perfect for my two though (6 and 5) with the negatives out of the way it’s a fantastic toy. We give it 6 thumbs up. You can purchase the playset at Toys R Us, Target or Kmart. You can also find out more info at http://www.spinmaster.com.
The second toy was an 8″ Olivia plush doll. L claimed this as her own right away. Poor J. Don’t worry I’m making her share. Olivia is so darn cute dressed up in her artist outfit. On her cartoon she’ll tell you all about how she likes art and our own little L loves art as well. So this is perfect. Olivia comes dressed in her other favorite outfits like Opera Singer and a Cow. These can also be purchased at Toys R Us, Target and Kmart.
Overall I really think the Olivia toys are going to be a huge hit this Christmas. It’s never too early to start thinking Christmas, right?!?!
