{Oompa Toys} Review & GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

Oompa is an impressive company with quite an expanse of children's items, ranging from toys and baby gear to furniture, decor and care items for your child!

They recently sent me the Jumping Frogs Push Toy made by Bajo, which is a European company based in Poland. Bajo's wooden toys are made from apple wood, cherry wood, alder, maple, beech, birch or walnut and are finished with non-toxic, child-safe lacquers.


Their site claimed this particular toy was suited for children 2 and up, and that is spot-on. My son is 2 and fit him perfect, both size-wise and interest-wise. I think this toy would still be played with by 3 and 4 year-olds, as well. That brings me to one of the beauties of their website, which is that all their products specify the age for which they're recommended, along with the specific details, safety features and "skills" (i.e. motor development, independent play, etc.) children learn by using the product - so handy & great for gift-giving when you're wondering, "Now what does a child turning such-and-such age play with??!"!

My 2yo son simply lit up (see below!) when I opened the box and handed him the toy! The toy was carefully packaged and soooo easy to "put together" - simply snap the handle on, and presto! - you're done. He immediately started pushing it around the kitchen and claimed he just couldn't wait to show Daddy when he got home (which he did not forget to do, might I add!).


Beyond his enjoyment was my enjoyment of it a) being a safe, wooden (that is, non-plastic) toy, b) being easy to "put together", and c)not making noise!

Buy yours here for just $31.99!

And now for the simply {fabulous} news!

Oompa has generously offered to give one lucky Haute Tot and Baby Couture reader their very own Jumping Frogs Push Toy! {Open to US residents with physical mailing address only - NO P.O. Boxes}.
