We’ve always been fans of kinetic rock and sand in this house. I love how easy it is to clear away and how it allows the children’s imaginations to run wild.
Recently we were sent Kinetic Rock – 3-in-1 Loader with Construction Tools and Real Gold Rock by Spinmaster to review. This delivery could not have been more perfectly timed. We are reaching the end of the Easter holidays and I was running out of ways to entertain the children!
The Kinetic Rock 3-in-1 Loader with Construction Tools and Real Gold Rock comes with a bag of gold kinetic rock, a deluxe construction vehicle, three attachable vehicle tools, a miniature construction worker and 5 accessories including a shovel and a pick.
It’s pretty safe to say that this set was a hit with both children. They spent ages hiding ‘treasure’ within the gold and digging it out with the different tools. I don’t often see them engaging in imaginative play together these days. It was lovely to watch them work together to attach different tools to the construction vehicle.
Attaching the tools to the vehicle is very easy to do, no help from Mummy needed! The only thing I didn’t like about this set is that the gold colour rubbed off on the different tools making them quite greasy to touch. The rock was quite warm when we used it though, so I think that could be why.
This set is available to purchase from all good toy retailers priced at around £17 and is suitable for children age 3 and over. Theo is nearly five and absolutely loved it, so this is definitely a toy that will stand the test of time. Despite the slight issue with colour transfer, we really enjoyed using this set and highly recommend it for children who love imaginative/small world play.
I will definitely be purchasing more of the construction range for Theo’s birthday!
