5.0 out of 5 stars Great soft sword, December 7, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very nice soft sword with a pretty exterior. Much more durable than cheaper alternatives. Will not maim your enemies, furniture, or pets. I wish Sarah's Silks sold a matching shield. The best I could find was from Creative Education of Canada which makes a velvety version (not the foam version sold on amazon.)

3.0 out of 5 stars The art makes me wince, December 7, 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Good: four year old pirate loves this puzzle; fairly durable

Bad: Lots of brown areas that make it more difficult but not in a challenging way, just in an annoying way; weird sense of perspective "why is the pirate a giant?"

Ugly: I don't understand why M&D has such horrible artwork for their puzzles. Just...bad. Don't children deserve good quality art as well? M&D as a company just has a terrible aesthetic sensibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice costume and dress up, December 7, 2011

This is really sweet in person and much better quality than average costumes or dress up clothes. Comfortable fleece fabric and ours included a little ladybug toy in the pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Large Expansion Pack, December 6, 2011
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Plan Toys now offers several large expansion packs for their train sets. These solid rubberwood tracks are great quality, don't warp, and fit smoothly. We had some open stock Melissa and Doug tracks and they were very frusterating because they were not engineered well, warped, broke, and had connectors of different sizes. It was nice to buy some better quality pieces as a group. The price compares favorably to buy PT tracks individually (hard to find but available at cowandlizard).

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, December 5, 2011
I didn't even know what I missing until I bought these at Whole Foods one time because it was all they carried. Oh boy, are they wonderful. If you've never tried them buy them know. Absolutely worth the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not durable, November 26, 2011
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Foam Pirate Sword (Toy)
This isn't an expensive toy unless you look at it from a cost-per-minute viewpoint. In which case, it is expensive for a short SHORT lived product. Bought the Sarah's Silks version next and it is still going strong a year later.

2.0 out of 5 stars Okay, November 21, 2011
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Knuffle Bunny12.25'' (Toy)
We got this as a gift and I think it is pretty dissappointing as a plush doll. It looks and feels kind of cheap and it isn't nearly as cute as the illustrations. You know how there is the cheap Disney pooh bear and the better looking "Classic Pooh" bear. Well this has cheap, Made in China Disney pooh written all over it. I would have like to see a soft and floopy organic Made in the USA version, machine washable. If they are too cheap to manufacture ethically, at least they could have chose a better designer like Jellycat.

We love, really love Mo Willems books but not this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice way to start story time, November 21, 2011
This review is from: Puff, the Magic Dragon (Hardcover)
My children are 2 and 4 and I've found that a good way to start story time is with a song. Does anyone really read this? If so, it isn't a great story. But it does make a good sing-a-long book. We sing it once or twice and then go onto the next. The song is also part of kids music rotation. The illustrations are quite good and are a nice companion to the text.

Four stars, instead of five, because it isn't like there is a lot of original thinking (song rights + illustrations) or much new here but we do really enjoy it. I would enjoy it less if I had purchased it full price.

Other books along the same vein are Sloopy John B, Peter Yarrow Songbook, and Blowin' in the Wind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun if you avoid the title, November 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My son (4) loves to draw and has really enjoyed this book. If he is read the direction he can draw a related picture and has been interested in all of the themes. He has no problem drawing with the current binding. No need for special binding etc. Unlike other reviewers, I view this as something to be consumed.

Four **** instead of five however for the title directing this to boys, only. I am really annoyed by gendered toys but gendered art supplies are even worse. There is no reason why this couldn't be labeled "adventure doodles" and the "girl's" "fantasy doodles" or something. I know a little girl who would love this book but she can read now and gets sick of the boy/girl message. To quote her, "dinosaurs are for everybody." To quote me, "drawing books should be too."
