Weebles Musical Treehouse from Playskool-Enter To Win!

218 Flares 218 Flares ×

I love playing with my kids.  With all the screens turned off, maybe a little kids music playing in the background, getting down on the floor and using our imaginations.  We dream up stories of dragons and knights, and how they saved the day.  Or about two brothers (my boys) who went on a fantastic adventure through a magical forest.  I love how colorful and unclouded Ben’s imagination is.  We’ve been making up stories for a few years now, and I hope that doesn’t end anytime soon.  But at 5 years old, and video games taking up most of his waking thoughts, it’s hard to bring that imagination back to life sometimes.

That’s where William comes in.  He’s so young, only 10 months old.  He’s just now learning how to play with toys, and has only a few very favorite ones.  As soon as he started actively playing with a toy that used to belong to Ben, his older brother perks up.  He’ll jump down on the floor and start playing right along side William.  He’ll start making up stories and acting them out with the toys, and William loves every second of it.  It’s beneficial for both of them!  For Ben, it pulls him away from the screen world he’s living in and gives him a chance to blow the dust off his own imagination, and for William in helps him develop his world of play.  They’re creating a bond that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

When we go to our local department stores, a trip to the toy section is a must, and now that William is walking, they’re both activly checking out all the new Holiday toys on display.  We noticed that their was one they both would run to.  It’s a bigger box, so it was always placed within their reach.  The Weebles Musical Treehouse.

So when I was given the opportunity to review it for our Holiday Gift Guide I was thrilled.  I knew both my kids would love seeing this toy come to our door!  When it arrived, Ben was at school.  So I put it together (quite easily) and let William have a go at it all on his own.  He’s still slightly too young to really appreciate all the features of the Treehouse, but he certainly does love the Weebles toys themselves.  They’re the perfect size for his little hands, and mouth.  He loves to gum them :) When Ben got home he had a huge grin!  He dropped down on the floor and started playing with it right away.  Taking the Weebles characters up the ladder/escalator and then down the slide.  Making up stories (or as he called them, missions) as he went along.  I did go out and get a package of two more Weebles for them to use, mainly because Ben doesn’t like the slime that William tends to leave behind.  All in all I think that The Weebles Musical Treehouse will make an awesome gift this holiday season.  Geared for kids aged 18 months and up, both my 10 month old and my 5 year old have enjoyed hours of play time with it!  Wanna know what’s really funny?  They both still run to it in the department stores.  Even though they now have it at home.

Win It!

    My two year old has a vivid imagination. It amazes us how she’ll pick up things and pretend they are little cups or play food. The other day she turned a plastic chair over and pretended the bottom was a drum. One thing we do to keep her imagination alive is work with her on drawing pictures. We’ll ask her what she wants to draw next and you can see her really thinking about it and trying to come up with something. I think art can be a wonderful way to keep your imagination alive.

I encourage my two sons to use their imagination by reading a book with them and then getting them to act out a similar story about the lesson learned, we use costumes and props and have loads of fun. Its one of my older sons (almost 8) favourite family games, and the youngest (16 months) is catching on quickly!!!

    I think communication is the main key in imagination. We are constantly playing and adding new things to talk about and play with. She loves to put toys together and show us. We are always supportive and no matter how tired we are, we have a special time every night to play and color and have FUN. She is so funny, she will take everything out of her small toybox and play with each toy, some she takes and adds to her barn play pack, so we have space men on the farmm but she always puts each back. She loves puzzles but will not start one until she has all the pieces for the puzzle. She is always thinking ahead.

  197. Both of my children used to love to tell me long involved stories, and I would always listen, no matter how far-fetched and involved they became. Since they were frequently expansions of what they had seen on TV or read in a book, they were definitely exercises of their imaginations.

    to encourage our children to use their imaginations we spend a lot of time playing outside with little or no toys

  404. we love to draw and having a mildly autistic son the things he can draw and stories he makes up are amazing just amazing

  405. Sometimes all we play with is paper! We can make and do a lot with JUST paper. :)

    THANKS!

  406. They are twins so we let them use their imagination together and we interact with them all the time.

  407. I play with them and we make up all kinds of stuff as we go along.. very creative!

  408. We read together – a lot! In order to enjoy a story, you must be able to use your imagination! I also don’t discourage Bebe Boy James – he had at one time a number of imaginary friends who would come and go. I would just ask them their names, if they were a boy or a girl, and if they were nice. If they weren’t nice, I’d take out my imaginary sword and … off with their heads! :)
