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 Weebles figures are wobbling all over the new Weebles Turn 'n Tumble Home. This home playset offers several ways for the Weebles to tumble. Turn the knob to send a Weebles character down the slide or onto a balcony and then tumbling into the garage. Kids can also press a button to send a Weebles character wobbling around the yard on a spinning platform. The set comes with two Weebles characters and a car. The Turn 'n Tumble Home plays four songs and different sound effects.
Why It’s Fun
This classic toy has classic appeal. It's developmentally right on target for the youngest kids who can make things happen easily and entertainingly. The characters are entertaining and their movements make kids laugh. For kids who have yet to develop fine motor skills, this is a very satisfying play experience because they can make so much happen so easily. Grasping the Weebles figures, pushing buttons and turning knobs on the playset helps foster an understanding of kids making things happen and aids in the development of fine motor skills. The Turn 'n Tumble Home will inspire lots of cause-and-effect play for the youngest kids and engaging open-ended play for somewhat older kids.
Who It’s For
The Weebles Turn 'n Tumble Home is for ages 12 months and up.
What to Be Aware of
The Turn 'n Tumble Home comes with two AA batteries, but those are for in-store try-me purposes. Hasbro recommends replacing the batteries before you play for best results.
