Product Review: Manhattan Toy Motorworks Truck And Groovy Girls For My Kids

My kids were really excited when they saw new toys in the mail! What a surprise for them. Immediately, my two kids were ready to play with the new toys they got complimentary of The Manhattan Toy Company

Aren't kids wonderful? I mean, they don't worry about huge responsibilities, but they only worry about sleep, food, school, toys and playtime. They are growing and learning about this big world and with the help of certain toys, it nourishes their creativity and imagination. I was very happy when The Manhattan Toy Company agreed to work with me on a product review because they have fun toys available online.

What Do We Think About The Toy? 

- Just by watching my son playing with his new Monster Truck, I can tell he likes the fact that he can remove the parts of the truck easily and sets them back easily. Boys are boys and they are always curious about their toys. My little man loves to play as a little mechanic and love dismantling his toys. And like it says, the Motorworks toys are built for infinite possibilities. They are customizable wooden toys that kids can change up the look of their trucks when you buy the rest of the Motorworks accessories. It is a fun, safe, and easy toys for kids to play with.

My little girl sitting beside her new little babies named Marissa and Maren. The new addition to the family. Looks like I am going to be busy making little dresses for these adorable little dollies. Just like my mom used to make dresses for the only barbie I had, and then some kid took it. It sure broke my heart and even up to now, I still wonder whatever happened to my barbie and her handmade clothes. 

Anyway, my little girl loves sleeping with her little dollies at night. She's always asking me to change her dollies dress, so I am excited to make pajamas for them. By the time she is old enough to change the dollies clothes all by herself, she will really enjoy playing with the dolls and changing their outfits. And in case you are wondering, you can also buy other outfits and accessories for the dolls on their website to complete the set. How adorable! These Groovy Girls from Manhattan Toys will make perfect gifts for your little princess. 
  • I like how they are soft and made of fabric, and they don't have cause any small choking-hazard things on all of their Groovy Girls dolls, so it is safe for little girls to play with. 
  • No, it doesn't stand on its own or sits on its own, but my girl doesn't seem to mind it. I guess that also means I have to make beds and chairs for the dolls, which by the way you can purchase on their website as well. 
  • I know they are just dolls, but it is so cute knowing that in every Groovy Girls dolls, they have their own personality. 
I guess I pretty much covered up everything you need to know about these Manhattan Toys that we got. But if you want to know more, and want to check out the rest of their fun and safe toys, don't forget to visit their website at http://www.manhattantoy.com/. Thank you, Manhattan Toys!
