When BeatBo first came on the scene I knew that my kids would love them. Joshua was always playing with the BeatBo at his cousin’s house when we went to visit so I knew I had to get him one of his own. I’m glad I didn’t because it’s one of the toys that gets played with day-in-day-out, and his tunes are pretty funky! So when I was asked if we wanted to test and review a few toys from the BeatBo range, there was no way I was going to turn that down.
Bright Beats Juniors
This little fella has been the biggest hit with Zara. She absolutely loves him and he goes everywhere with him! He’s like a little mini BeatBo with a wobbly head. Available for 6 months and plus, Bright Beats Juniors play some pretty funky tunes (I’ve found myself dancing away to them) and the wobbly head helps to reinforce cause and effect as well as fine motor skills. His belly lights up and changes colours whilst the music is playing and it’s really loud! I’m glad there’s an on and off switch!
Bright Beats Buggies
Next we have this cute little fella. He’s like a car version of the real BeatBo and he is so cool! The BeatBo Buggies are for 9 months plus and have a crazy selection of music for little ones to dance along to. Zara loved this little car and pushes him along the floor after she’s pressed his face to start the lights and sounds. This is really helpful to boost baby’s motor skills while they have a little boogie! I love this little guy, he’s so cute and he isn’t as loud as the BeatBo juniors but he doesn’t have an on or off switch so he tends to go off randomly when knocked in the bag. But that’s minor because he’s so cute!
Bright Beats Learning Lights Dance Mat
Finally we have the amazing dance mat, but for kids! I’d seen this a few times before so I knew the kids would love this, and sure enough they do! All 3 of the children play on the mat and they have so much fun dancing around with BeatBo. The mat has sensors on the bottom of it so that when pressed lights and sounds start, reinforcing cause and effect. There are several games for your little one to play with BeatBo that help to teach colours, shapes, number, ABC’s and several dance moves. There is nothing my kids love more than a good dance party. So now we have several BeatBo toys all going off at the same time whilst they run around the living room dancing to the cool tunes. The Fisher-Price Dance Mat is suitable from 9 to 36 months and probably even higher if you’ve got a kid that loves to have a wiggle about.
