Are you, like me wondering why all the kids are so sedentary all the time? We’ll this is the perfect toy for them to take and play with anyone!
It has 26 colorful light shows (my son absolutely loved this part)
There are 90 fun, physical commands each with it’s own light show: Stomp like a Dinosaur, Swoop) Like an Eagle, Wiggle like a Worm, Hop like a frog, Zoom like a Jet, and Leap like a Lion!
This really gets people of all ages moving! My 1 year old was playing with it and everyone around him joined in, including some senior citizens! It’s fun, creative and gets kids to work on there listening skills! It’s also great for gross and fine motor skills, sharing, and vocabulary building!
There are 3 volume settings including off (it will turn off on it’s own after 2 minutes of non-use) , and 2 buttons. Hit play to hear Hop like a Kangaroo, did you miss what was said? just hit repeat!
My son took the liberty of drop testing it (yes I cringed as I hadn’t had the chance to let anyone else try it) but the wand didn’t miss a beat, and he drops things frequently. He also threw it a few times, not even a scratch! This toy had him giggling, smiling, and dancing around!
Speaking of dancing, you could like the inventor; Strut like a Peacock – Don’t believe me check out her video on how the Magic Moves Electronic Wand was developed here (5:02 for those of you who can’t wait)
I hate it when the battery cover flies off, but they thought of that too! Yes you can use a butter knife on that screw.
Give it to bigger kids (and adults) and they love acting out all the motions, we certainly did! While this is fun alone, I really think this would be great for parties!
I wanted to show the actual size of it, and hands do vary. In case you can’t see it well that’s a nickel and a regular dollar store clothes pin next to it. Additionally, the actual measurement is 10 inches long.
In the paperwork that comes with the Magic Moves Electronic Wand, they tell you to be careful not to spill any liquid on the wand or submerge it in water (surprise and electronic toy that’s not water friendly), To clean it use a soft, slightly damp cloth. I used a cloth damp with vinegar (to disinfect) the toy and it was fine, baby drool seemed fine also, tho I would be careful.
This does require 3 AAA batteries but they include the batteries!!! It’s rated ages 3 and up, but I’d go ahead and say 6m and up with supervision. It retails for $19.99 and is available at Amazon.com, when I looked it was available for $13.85 with free shipping and got great reviews there too!
I got to looking at all the great toys Educational Insights makes for children, there’s quite a bit out there but there items seem to get positive reviews everywhere I looked.
