We are very lucky that we have quite a lot of toys for Erin to play with but she can get bored of them quite quickly. We’re always looking for new and interesting things for her to play with, and also to help her learn. BRIO is one of our favourite brands for toys and we were recently sent the BRIO Play & Learn Musical Caterpillar for Erin to try. I have never seen a toy like this before so I was really excited to play with it for the first time with Erin.
Before you can starting playing with the BRIO Play & Learn Musical Caterpillar you’ll need 2x AAA batteries which are not included. There is a covered up area for them on the back of the toy which is secured with a screw so you’ll also need a small screwdriver to open it up! I’m glad I had a look at this before Erin played with it as she would have got very impatient about having to wait for batteries!
The BRIO Play & Learn Musical Caterpillar consists of a plastic board with 12 circular sections. 2 of these sections are yellow and the head and tail of a caterpillar. Along with the board you get 4 wooden pieces which are to be placed in circular sections on the board.
The aim is to connect the head and the tail of the caterpillar with the wooden pieces and different melodies are created when you do this. There are 10 different combinations to try with this toy and you’re provided with a leaflet showing all of them. This is great for younger children and parents if they get a bit stuck or confused. It’s nice to have something to refer back to if you think you have done them all already.
I really love that this has such a simple concept but it is so different from any other of Erin’s toys. The BRIO Play & Learn Musical Caterpillar is aimed at children ages 24m+ and as Erin is coming up to 3, she is really able to understand what she needs to do. There aren’t too many pieces so it’s not too confusing and the concept is really simple and easy to understand.
The Play & Learn Musical Caterpillar is another fantastic product from BRIO and one Erin really gets a lot of enjoyment from.
You can buy the BRIO Play & Learn Musical Caterpillar on Amazon.
