TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
The Tag Reading System lets children bring books to life and add new dimensions of engagement and entertainment to reading. The Tag Solar System Adventure Pack is an interactive two-sided map that works with the Tag Reader device, which is sold separately. You can connect the Tag to the computer to download the audio content for the map into the device. Open up the three-foot-long map, and virtually any spot a child touches on the map with the Tag Reader will activate more than 40 different built-in activities with age-appropriate information and exploration. The set also comes with Passport to the Planets, an interactive sticker book. The map has two levels of content so older kids will be as engaged and challenged as younger kids. As with all products in the Tag Reading System, the Solar System Adventure Pack has a great deal of content that will keep kids engaged and exploring.
Why It’s Fun
This is an age-appropriate way to introduce young kids to the science of the solar system. What we like about the Solar System Adventure Pack is that the map shows the planets in proportionate size and distance, which helps kids envision the solar system. It also helps them understand and contextualize the science for something they cannot easily observe. Interacting with the stickers and the Tag Reader in the Passport to the Planets sticker book helps reinforce the learning as kids are engaged. Even as adults, we were intrigued by the information and the games, so parents may enjoy playing with this with their kids.
Who It’s For
The Tag Solar System Adventure Pack is for ages 4—8.
