We have A LOT of toys!! So many, that I continually vow to NOT buy my children anymore for the rest of their lives ;). I am sure you can all relate. In all honesty, I will continue to buy my kids toys….but I usually try to buy them products that will be educational and stimulating for them in some way. We received an i-Mat Set (Pad and Voice Pen) My Animal World to review and this is one of those toys that I don’t mind having in my home!
“Creative Baby’s unique upgradeable Voice Pen™ brings your i-Mat™ to life. By touching the pen to the i-Mat™, the objects on the i-Mat™ “talk” and songs play. As new i-Mat™ themes are introduced, you will be able to connect the Voice Pen™ to any computer with internet access (with the USB cable provided in the package), download the new sound file from our website to the i-Mat™ Voice Pen™ and you and your child will be ready to explore new i-Mat™ adventures.”
The i-Mat Set (Pad & Voice Pen) My Animal World, comes in 4 pieces that interlock together to make a large single Mat. It has brightly colored illustrations of tons of different animals, all in their specific little habitat. The pictures are cute and really capture the attention of my kids! I like to keep it assembled in the corner of our living room. The kids are always playing with it, so it doesn’t make sense to put it away yet! With only 2 buttons, the Voice Pen is easy to work. We simply push the power button, and then point the pen to what ‘game’ we want to play….or which language we want. To hear animal sounds and music, we can point the pen at any animal and it will make the appropriate sound.
All of my kids were very excited to see such a fun new product to play with. It is something different than they have really ever owned before and they all wanted the first turn! My husband actually headed up the first run.We started with the game that asked the kids to find the animal that ‘has a long nose’. They all had tons of fun trying to find the correct animal on the mat first! My husband really loves that the i-Mat has the option for Spanish. He speaks Spanish and loves to teach the kids words here and there…..the i-Mat is a fun way for him to help the kids learn the animal names in a different language. There is also a Chinese language option! It is the perfect way to introduce a new language to your children!
“Creative Baby Inc., developers of products to excite, challenge and simply delight tots, introduced in August i-Mat: My Animal World on its website, www.creativebabyinc.com. The first in a series of themed interactive foam mats, the colorful play land is made of four interlocking soft sections that are activated when used with its Voice Pen. Babies and older siblings learn while exploring the illustrated mat with a simple point on the “word bubble.” They’re instantly rewarded with an animal sound, a word, music or a foreign language translation! Newborn babies can enjoy the mat without the pen—the mat is phthalate-, lead- and heavy metal-free, and no electronics mean no worries for wiping the mat clean.”
The i-Mat is the perfect toy for ALL of my kids even though they are all different ages. My 1 year old likes to have me point out the animals to her on the Mat. She also loves hearing the animal sounds from the Voice Pen. She is getting to the point where she knows exactly what to do to hear animals sounds (just point the pen to the desired animal)….but she can’t resist pushing the 2 buttons which usually turns the pen off ;). My older kids like to play the games and they really love using the Voice Pen to record themselves ;). Whatever age your kids are, they will have lots of fun with this educational toy for kids and babies!!
