Toy Review: LeapFrog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket

Tags: baby toys, educational toys, preschool toys

Section: Reviews

The leapfrog picnic basket is suitable for children from six months up to three years. It includes an audio picnic basket, two plates, two cups , a picnic blanket, six pieces of food and two forks.

Both my daughters, age 9 months and 2 1/2 both love to play with the picnic basket. The chunky food shapes are a good size and shape for babies small hands to hold and explore. My youngest loves to look inside the basket and take out and explore each item. The cups which stack onto each other also appeal to her and she loves you to build them up for her to knock over!

The imaginative play offered by the picnic basket makes it suitable for older children too. My two year old loves role playing with the basket, setting the blanket and food out and pretending to eat. The audio responses are clear for children to understand and include counting, food names and shapes as well as some memorable tunes which my daughter now sings along to!

Overall this is a brilliant toy for a wide age range and is therefore recommended especially for siblings of different ages. The only thing which may put people off is the pink and purple colouring which is a shame as this toy is great for both boys and girls.
