Review: Ronnie Rocket by WOW Toys

SO Kid has been busy testing out Ronnie Rocket from WOW Toys. A bright yellow rocket, Ronnie has lots of cool features that preschool aged boys and girls will love…

* A happy, smiley face at the top

* A robot on the front with a pull cord to trigger a countdown

* Vibration and a visual countdown of the numbers 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

* Lid opens to reveal cockpit

* A removable astronaut

* And to make mums and dads happy – rubber pads on the bottom to prevent the floor being scratched!

He loves this toy and in the last few days it has accompanied him everywhere – including to the shops and to preschool for show and tell. It seems like a well made toy, chunky with tough plastic, not cheap and flimsy, yet it’s not too heavy and bulky for little people to pick up and carry around. We bought another WOW toy from Hamleys almost two years ago and it’s been very well played with, indoors and outdoors (even in the paddling pool!) and survived with hardly a scratch. SO Kid has enjoyed playing with the two toys together and is very excited to have two matching spacemen!

The recommended age range for Ronnie Rocket is 18 months – 5 years. From 18 months it can help to develop motor skills, from 2 years learning and number recognition and from 3 years it is ideal for role playing and storytelling. The latter is certainly true as you can see below – The Amazing Adventures of Ronnie Rocket by SO Kid, with a little creative direction from his big sister!
