Score: 91.0%


What the testers said: “Excellent product! These maracas spent no time in the toy box; the children can’t get enough of them. The non- stop usage means you definitely get your money’s worth. Very well made, from strong plastic, in bold, primary colours. A very good teaching tool that makes counting, colours and music fun for children. The only problem is that they can get quite repetitive, but this did not seem to bother the children.”

What the testers said: “The product is easy to assemble and is very sturdy. It is perfect for babies who are beginning to pull themselves up to standing, as it does not topple over. The children enjoyed playing with the buttons and flashing lights. We also used it without the legs for smaller (sitting) babies.”

What the testers said: “A unique idea. It was suitable for a wide age range, and for children with special needs. It stimulated good interaction between children when playing the game in groups, but also worked well for individual play. The graphics are fantastic quality and it’s great that it is downloadable. The prompts and craft idea for adults were very useful, however the suggested age range of two plus is too young, as many of the craft ideas were for children older than two.”
