CAT Preschool Toys - Holiday Gift Guide Review

Looking for some exciting toys for your little one this Christmas? Check out the CAT Preschool Collection for some functional toys!

First there's the CAT Preschool Flash Light & Night Light, which is a CAT machine-styled flashlight with an underglow night light function (3 timer options) and a cool realistic horn sound effect! My niece helped me review the Bulldozer style of this toy, and she loved it!

She figured out how to push the night light button right away which creates a green glow underneath, and she also enjoyed the honking button. The flashlight turns on by squeezing the handle - she still hasn't figured that out yet, but I'm sure she will soon enough! This toy is for 18 months and up and she's just 13 months but this is still a great toy that she can "grow into".

Not only is this toy functional as a flashlight and night light, but it is shaped like bulldozer and has wheels so it can be played with as a truck as well. I know most people consider truck and machinery toys to be for boys only, but these CAT Preschool toys would be enjoyed by any child no matter what their gender. They're fun and functional! My niece really enjoyed the CAT Preschool Flash Light & Night Light, which retails for $15.99 and is available at Toys R Us, Target, Walmart and Kmart.

The CAT Honk & Rumble Wheel is a Caterpillar machine wheel loaded with sounds, lights and a rumble motor ignition function. There are turn signal buttons that light up, tick, and say "right turn" or "left turn" in a vocal sound. The wheel features six buttons on top with "goofy sounds" that also cause all of the colorful buttons to light up and flash. Then there is the middle button that honks and makes the wheel rumble, and an ignition key-shaped button at the bottom that causes a starting sound and rumbling as well. The "rumble" is a vibrating feel so that the child holding the wheel will feel like they're driving over rocky ground - similar to those video game controllers that vibrate when you crash or go off the road.

This toy is also recommended for children 18 months and up, and I think it's one that my niece is still a little too young for. She enjoyed pushing the buttons for the lights and sounds, but she wasn't ready for the rumbling feature and I think it scared her when the wheel started vibrating because she did cry for a second until I hit the goofy sound buttons to make her laugh again. I think as she plays with it more she will be expecting the rumble so it won't be so scary.

The Honk & Rumble Wheel is a cool toy and has lots of fun features for kids. It is also good for the imagination by pretending to drive or even just rolling the wheel along the floor. The sounds are a bit loud, however, so the only recommendation I have for this toy would be a volume option. This retails for $16.99 and is available at Toys R Us, ToysRUs.com, Target, Walmart, and Kmart. Both of these toys come complete with 3 AA Batteries.

If  my niece could talk in complete sentences, I'm sure she would say she approves of these toys :) Check out CAT Preschool toys for your holiday gift giving today!
