My Wondercube Review

Having had four kids, we have had a fair few toys in this house, the trouble is that the younger ones tend to get all the old toys and nothing new for themselves and even when we want to buy new, we struggle with ideas for something different to purchase.

When I was asked to review the My Wondercube, I was rather excited for Gracie and Layla as this was something new for them that they could enjoy together.

My Wondercube is an innovative educational toy that was actually created after the creators watched their daughter pulling wet wipes out of their packet.

These cubes are suitable from birth onwards and come in a range of materials : organic cotton jersey, organic fairtrade woven cotton and lovely crafted wooden. All made by manufacturers who use ethical and environmentally friendly production and they are all carry the CE marking.

We were sent the Little Wonder Jersey which is made from the organic cotton jersey.

The cube is extremely soft and wonderfully colourful. It comes complete with five pieces which fill the cube, all presented in an eco friendly box. 

The pieces that are included feature the "Wonder characters" : munchy, max, mimi and min. These pieces are all just as soft as the cube and each one does something different, squeeking, crunching, rattling. There is a little velcro part on each one so that you can stick each piece together.

Being machine washable, you don't need to worry about sticky fingers getting over it or little mouths munching away on it. All of the filling pieces are machine washable too.

Priced at £17.99 for this version, I think it is money well spent. The toy is fun and your child is learning as they play. There is something new to do each time, learning colours, sounds, putting things in a row, pulling things out and putting things away, the list is endless. It is a toy that will help with your little ones developing their fine motor skills, 

The best bit is that you can buy additional add on fillings to go in the Wondercube, from letters and numbers to shapes, emotions and animals. The add on filling prices range from as little as £0.99 up to £19.99. This is turn will help them learn their alphabet and form words and learn to count and maybe even start doing basic sums.

It is a toy that is durable and made to last. It will be played with for years as your child grows as there are always more things to learn and is one that is perfect to pass on to younger siblings etc too. It can be adapted for whoever is playing with it. A great addition to any toy box.
