Ambi Toys Activity Case REVIEW


Today we're bringing you our second review as part of our exciting role as Galt Ambi Toys Ambassador's...and it's Noah's first go at reviewing these fabulous toys which he seemed very excited about!

We've been testing out the Activity Case...I chose this as our next review item because it reminded me so much of a very similar toy I had myself as a child.

That's what I really love about the Ambi Toys range - the nostalgia! I feel as though pretty much everything I look at from the range reminds me of a toy I had myself and brings back such happy memories!




When the activity case arrived I wasn't too sure how Noah would get on with it as it states that its suitable for ages 6 months and up, and Noah was 4 months old when it arrived...I took it out of the box and gave it to him but he didn't have much interest...not unexpected given his age! So I decided to wait a while and try again.

This week we brought the activity case out to try again...and the results were much better!

Noah has just turned 5 months old, so still has a month to go before reaching the toys recommended age but I was amazed by how much he interacted with it and seemed to enjoy it.


He loved looking at his reflection in the mirror - he's not usually a big fan of tummy time even though his head control is great, but with the mirror to admire himself in he was happy to spend a bit of time laid there looking at himself!


He tried really hard to interact with the various elements of the toy - he pulled at the blue bird to chime the bell, and jabbed his fist at the button to hear the squeak...you could really see the concentration on his face as he played with this.



I'm so impressed with how much the activity case encouraged Noah to reach out and grab at what he wanted, encouraged him to explore, helped with keeping him interested for some tummy time, and seemed to really help with his dexterity! 

I can't wait to see how much more he gets out of it as he gets a bit older.

The Activity Case from Ambi Toys is priced at £15.99

Do your kids have any toys that remind you of your childhood ones?

  7. Oh this is EXACTLY like a toy we used to have in the 80s. I'm pretty sure all kids have at one time played with it. I was amazed how early my little girl started playing with toys and how quickly they advance as they learn. This looks like a great item for the playmat.

  8. Looks like he loved it. This is just like the bigger white and green fisher price activity board we all had in the 70s/80s. My son's now playing with some of my old childhood toys.
