~I received Pinypon toys for review. Opinions and stories are my own.~
It is time for Christmas shopping. My daughter recently turned 5 and I have no idea about “big girl” toys. She is my oldest and I have a 2 year old at home so I am not on the up and up when it comes to fun older kid toys. I was given the chance to review some toys from Pinypon. They looked fun and colorful so I thought it would be a great toy set to introduce my daughter to bigger girl toys. Apparently I am the best mom ever because when the box showed up she squealed “PINYPONSSSSSSSSSSSSS.” She somehow (tv commercials probably) already knew what they were and that they are apparently “amazing.”
Established in 1957 by a group of artisan doll makers, Famosa has become a leading European toy company and doll manufacturer based in Spain. The company has a stellar reputation as a developer of innovative, safe and high quality products that foster all around development for young children. Families who grew up in Spain or Mexico likely have fond and warm memories of playing with their Famosa toys. Famosa currently operates in over 95 countries, reaching a wide range of consumers. In 2010, Famosa was acquired by Sun Capital Partners and its U.S. operations were established in October 2011, based in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. The company markets brands including Pinypon, Nenuco, Nancy and Feber.
I will admit it took me a solid half hour to put the set together including putting all the stickers on it. When it was all done and ready for play it was all worth it. This set is cute, colorful and full of little accessories.
This is pretty much the closest my daughter has every been to snow with this Pinypon Snow Ski Lodge. The ramp is an especially big hit as the figures can ski or sled down it.
The ice skating rink is made for it to be filled with water and then put in the freezer to make it just like a little ice skating rink! There is no frozen water in my picture below.
Of course additional sets can be bought for added fun!
My daughter has played with this set for about an hour every single day since we got it. For her that is the most attention a toy ever gets. She absolutely loves changing out their outfits. Here is a picture of her changing out the girl’s skirt for the umpteenth time.
My daughter says every day how much fun this toy is. So if you are in need of a gift idea for a 4+ girl than this is the toy to buy! I have seen first hand how much fun she has with it and I would not be at all surprised if this becomes one of those new hit toys. She is already asking for more sets so it looks like I will have to get more for her for Christmas. I love it when a toy is this big of a hit with my girls!
Purchase: You can purchase the Pinypon Snow Ski Lodge at ToysRUs for $39.99 and the Pinypon Snow Adventure Car & Tow at ToysRUs for $12.99.
