Another WIN for Scout!
on February 23, 2014
We purchased this as one of our 17 month old son's Christmas gifts. He already has the regular Scout (whom he sleeps with every night and plays with first thing each morning). He was so excited to see another Scout. The little books are the perfect size for toddlers and since they're board books, they can hold up with toddler treatment. Our son actually likes to stack them up and carry them around. Wherever he puts them, they're usually all together in a little pile, which is saying a lot due to the way he keeps all his other books strewn about. He immediately fell in love with this Scout. He enjoys petting it's head and giving him big hugs and kisses. That alone was super cute.
We really like the way that Scout interacts throughout the story. As our son gets older and his attention span grows, we feel like this will be an even bigger hit.
The toy comes with 5 books. Each book is different and focuses on teaching something unique. We really like the one that teaches colors. On the collar are buttons that correspond for each of the books. On his paws are music and play commands. There are also buttons on Scout's back and the top of his head that encourage specific actions (pet my head to turn the page; pat my back, etc.). There are some fun new songs. The color song is our son's favorite. He loves to dance to that song. The music and story time has two option settings: regular and bedtime. The way the stories are done fit each setting. (Playful vs. sleepy)
We definitely recommend this toy to any toddler. If we could make one suggestion, it would have been to find a way to add on more story books later.
