My 1st JCB Toy Review

Looking around Leo’s play room, and the entirety of my house for that matter. It is very apparent that I have a little boy who loves construction toys. We have diggers, tractors, trucks and cars, and they have the properties to keep my flamboyant 2 year old entertained for hours on end.

It is suffice to say that Leo is all for anything with an engine and I know that as he gets older, he is just going to get more and more into his cars and engines. I may need a little more money/saving time come his 17th Birthday…

Thankfully Leo is still only a toddler, and currently the only engines he owns… Are toys. *wipes sweat from brow*

We have welcomed two new additions into Leo’s construction collection recently. These two new toys come from the Golden Bears My 1st JCB collection. When I was asked if Leo would maybe like to try them out, the answer of course was a resounding yes. I knew that they would be a big hit with Leo, and having seen his reaction and the play value that has been experienced ever since their arrival… I was very right.

Press and Go Joey is exactly as described on the box, you can push him around freestyle or you can push down the cab and watch him whizz away all on his own. Leo thought this was great and he has spent lots of time scooping up the 2 boulders that come included with this toy. The scoop is movable much to Leo’s delight and he has been using it to put smaller toys in so that they can be driven around at warp speed!

The second toy that Leo has been giving a thorough work out is the Talking Rocco Rescue who is a rescue truck with towing arm so that you can actually head your own search and rescue. Leo has managed to pull the moveable part off once, but it popped back in easily enough.

Talking Rosco has 5 different phrases and features flashing lights, all things that draw in Leo’s attention. In fact the talking and the lights are Leo’s favourite things about Rosco, aside from the fact he has wheels and can be pushed around the room!

Both Leo and I have been very impressed by Rosco and Joey, each in different ways of course. I like that they are both chunky and easy to grip making them perfect for younger toddlers 12 months plus to play with. Leo likes that they move freely and allow him to make lots of noise! 

Press and Go Joey retails at £9.99 and Talking Rocco Rescue retails at £10.99.
