New Beginnings Ride-On Toy {Review & Giveaway}

posted in: Reviews 48 comments

This Giveaway is Now Closed.

I love to find toys that all my kids can play with and that encourage imagination, movement and cooperation while being safe for all of them.  With a 4, 2 and 8 month old finding toys like this can be tricky.  Many times our favorite toys are the simplest and do not require batteries or lights to provide tons of fun!  The New Beginnings lineup of animal ride-on toys with their own pull toy babies are precious and really do get “back to basics”, letting my kids make up the games they will play.  While the toy is recommended for ages 1 to 3 both my slightly younger and slightly older children are still having a blast after weeks of playing with our new friends.  Aren’t they cute?

Well, you can win your own adorable duo!  Yippee!

We recieved the Trunk and Lil’ squirt to play with and due to my families love of elephants we were ecstatic!  The kids could not wait to open up the box and immediately loved that there was a mama and a baby.  I tried to tell them that they were buddies but we are all about babies over here.  I checked out the toys to make sure they were safe for all the kids and then said that baby Violet could be the first to try it out since she was our baby.  I love that her feet can touch the floor and that she can hold on to the handles or the ears to keep her balance.  The kids love to push her and she has so much fun.

When she tires of riding or her siblings tire of waiting for their turn she likes to sit with ‘Lil Squirt and pull him around or teethe on his pull ring.

She also likes to try and catch Trunk and ‘Lil squirt…they are helping give her the urge to crawl!

Miles rides Trunk around and around and around the house, stopping to “feed” ‘Lil Squirt a bottle or ask if he likes the ride.  I think it is adorable.  He also pretends everything is a rodeo and often yells yee-haw while riding.  Sometimes he even shows us his trunk.

Sophia is a little tall for the toy but she in no way seems to heavy for it and after taking many a turn around the house I am happy that she can play without hurting herself or the toy.  It is manufactured by Moose Mountain Toys , who make a number of ride ons that are sturdy and can handle play by older kids.  Around here – we like sturdy.  Sophia like to push off as hard as she can and see how far she goes.  Clearly she enjoys this.

Overall I love these New Beginnings ride-onsand would reccomend them for the pre-school set and as a great first ride on due to their shorter height and narrow frame.  Because they are slim, little legs are able to get over the seat and allow feet to touch the floor. I really like this feature.  I also like that Violet can hang on to the ears of Mama Trunk.  I adore that there are no batteries or music to drive me crazy. Also – no assembly.   I think it is wonderful that there are two toys here because sometimes sharing is hard.  Really hard.  The kids have so much fun with their new friends.

I will say that the small stature of the toy makes it ideal for smaller children like Violet (with adult supervision) up through the 2′s.  The kids love to play make believe games with their ride-ons and both Miles and Violet love to pull the baby, but I think as a purchase you would get the most use out of this cute duo by purchasing it while your child is younger.  For $24.99 this is a toy I would purchase after seeing how both my baby and my toddler are loving it and how safe and sturdy it is.

But wouldn’t it be nice to win one?
