Award Winning Toys from The Manhattan Toy Company {Giveaway}

Have you started Christmas shopping yet?  I am slowly beginning to check names off of my list.  When it comes to gift giving I like to put a lot of thought into what I choose for each of my children.  There is one company that I can always depend on for high quality toys that provide hours of open ended play for my little ones.  That encourages my children to use the most powerful thing they will ever play with – their imagination.  Toys that don’t require batteries.  That are made with wood from sustainable forests and decorated with water based paints.  This company has a wide variety of toys and many of them have a list of awards attached to them as well.  That company is The Manhattan Toy Company and today I will be sharing two items from their Top 2016 Holiday Toy list.


Dinosaurs have been a huge hit in our home for the past two years and so when I saw the Playful Dino I knew we had a winner.  From the list of awards this adorable guy has received it’s quite obvious that I’m not the only one who thinks he is a winner.  The Playful Dino was listed on San Diego Family Magazine’s Hottest 50 Toys list and received awards for Creative Child 2016 Preferred Choice Award, Parents’ Choice Recommended Winner, and Today’s Parent Top Toy Winner.  Pretty impressive!  But what did we think?


I’m always a tad nervous opening boxes that include the words “adult assembly required.”  Kids don’t want to wait for their toys to be put together.  They just want to play.  And the last thing I want to do is put together a million tiny pieces.  I must say I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the Playful Dino box.  Assembly required only one simple step and no tools were necessary.  In about thirty seconds his tail was attached and my work was done.


Lilah and my nephew, Landon, immediately began exploring every area of the Playful Dino.  On every surface they found another activity to keep their hands and minds busy.  Landon especially liked the tulip shaped flowers that would spring back into place when he would push them down as well as the bead runs.


Lilah was overly excited when she flipped the letter tiles and saw her favorite animal, a cat.  She also enjoyed the peg maze and switching his eyes from awake to asleep.


I would definitely recommend this toy – especially if you are shopping for a little one who will be celebrating their first Christmas like Landon.  They will get years of enjoyment out of this super cute dino with the added benefits of learning cause and effect while fostering fine motor skill development and hand-eye coordination.  In addition to the Playful Dino The Manhattan Toy Company has other similar toys including Playful Pony, Tree Top Adventure, and Storybook Castle.


The other toy I am excited to share is the Snuggle Baby Bunny.  Two of Lilah’s favorite things right now are baby dolls and animals so combining the two is absolute perfection.


The bunny themed sleep sack has a Velcro closure making it easy for little hands to open and close.  Lilah loved putting the doll in and taking it out of the sleep sack as well as giving it plenty of hugs.  How adorable would this doll be peeking out the top of a stocking on Christmas morning?  It is also available in a lion and bear version as well.


 Be sure to visit The Manhattan Toy Company website for even more  award winning toys that are sure to thrill your little ones on Christmas morning.  Plus they offer FREE shipping and returns.  It’s also a great idea to sign up for e-mails to get special sneak peeks of new toys, custom offers just for you, and a coupon code for 20% off your first purchase!  Ready to go shopping?  Before you head over to The Manhattan Toy Company website be sure to enter the giveaway below.  One lucky Happenings of the Harper Household reader will win a $25 e-gift card to ue on The Manhattan Toy website!  Good luck.

    After checking out there site I had a hard time deciding which toy I liked best. I have an obsession with elephants so I loved everything that involved an elephant. My favorites would be the giggle wood shape sorter and the roly-bop elephant.
