Review of Little Tikes Lil' Ocean Explorers 3 in 1 Adventure Course
There are multiple play areas for children who use this toy. It is easy to set it up and put it away when the little ones are done playing with it for the day. There is an adorable canopy that covers the top of the course, providing a fun tunnel-like appearance for the children to crawl in and out of as much as they want to. It comes with a wheel that rotates, attachable rattle toy and several clickers that make exciting sounds to keep the little ones engaged.
You may hear more than 20 different sounds coming from this toy. Each sound is designed to grasp the attention of the little ones, keeping them interested in what is going in front of them. I noticed that my little one wiggles her legs and claps her hands whenever she hears the noises. Watching the excitement in her body language is truly rewarding.
What Age Range Is This Toy For?
The adventure course is aimed at children who range in age from 6 to 36 months old, so the toy is great for both infants and toddlers. Supervision will be necessary for younger children, especially if they cannot walk yet, but the course allows young babies who can't walk to simply crawl through for some fun.
