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 dancing penguins return in Happy Feet Two, a sequel that follows Mumble's son Erik as he tries to find his talents. The dancing comes off the big screen with several electronic dancing characters, including Dancing Amigo Ramon.
Ramon has 18 sayings and plays his own music. When you talk to Ramon, he will respond and chat. Press the dance button to hear a song and watch Ramon dance. If you press the dance button twice, Ramon will flap his wings and dance to any music or sound.
Other characters in the line include Dancing Erik and Dancing Boadicea. Each is sold separately.
Why It’s Fun
Kids will like all the interactivity they can have with Dancing Amigo Ramon. From chatting to dancing, this electronic penguin brings the character and the dancing fun from the movie to life.
Who It’s For
Dancing Amigo Ramon is for ages 4 and up. While penguins have become very popular as pets since the introduction of the first Happy Feet movie, this toy is likely to appeal most to real fans of the character.
What to Be Aware of
Dancing Amigo Ramon comes with four AA batteries, but these are for in-store demo purposes. Thinkway recommends replacing the batteries before you play for best results.
Ramon works best on a smooth, non-carpeted floor. Clear the area of delicate or breakable objects because Ramon will move around a lot while dancing.
When chatting with Ramon, make sure you are at a close distance and speaking in a normal tone to maximize the voice recognition capabilities. (Smaller kids often shout at the toys, which makes the recognition imprecise.)
After a short period of inactivity, Ramon will go into sleep mode to preserve battery life.
