Talking Messy goes to Okido Toy Review

09:59

The kids are big fans of Messy goes to Okido, it's such a cute show for them to watch and it's one that I approve of because it is educational as well.  So when we were asked if we wanted to review a new Talking Messy toy from Golden Bear of course we jumped at the chance.  When Messy arrived in his box Ivy was so desperate to get him open that I could hardly even take a photo of him first!



It's a lovely soft toy that is perfect for cuddling with, and has no loose parts so it is even suitable for small babies.  And of course the best part is that when you squeeze his tummy he talks!  He says all of his catchphrases from the show, which the kids were so excited about!  I think their favourite is "Let's skidoodle okidoodle!" or maybe "balabalaboomboom!" those are the ones they repeat the most anyway!



We also got to have a look at the Messy goes to Okido magazines, which we actually haven't seen before but I will definitely be looking for now.  Each magazine has a theme and is packed full of arts and science activities for children to do to learn more about the theme. There are some activities to do in the magazine as well as ideas for baking and crafts to do alongside them.  Ivy happily sat and went through the magazine with her Messy toy and did lots of the activities and really enjoyed them (with a little bit of help of course).


Then when it's time for a bit of a break (and usually when I'm trying to cook dinner or clean the house) I put on an episode of Messy goes to Okido for Ivy to watch, and she happily sits down with her Messy toy and they watch it together.  I love that the show is educational, there's always something that Messy wants to find out more about (another one of his catchphrases, "If you want to know, go to Okido") so he sets off for Okido to learn more about it.  It's a fun way to learn about colours, numbers, our bodies and all sorts of other topics.  Ivy gets to watch an episode then we sit down together and talk about it.


I love that this Messy toy talks but is still cozy and snuggly and perfectly safe for Ivy to then take up to her room and cuddle up with for her nap.  I'm sure that Messy will be coming on a lot of our adventures with us now as well!

  2. It's hard to get anything out of him when he watches it (he is 3) but he loves the theme tune! He always gets up to dance when it's on (or when I sing it at the dinner table). To be fair, it is a catchy tune.
