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
Moms know TRIO as a line of building toys for ages 3—8. Now even younger kids can have an age-appropriate and engaging building experience with TRIO Junior My 1st Blocks. Designed for children as young as 12 months, it offers a foundation for creative building fun and encourages a wide variety of early development skills, such as hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills.
The building pieces in the TRIO Junior My 1st Blocks set are sized and shaped just right for smaller hands. There are a variety of unique play pieces, such as a character topper and a rolling car chassis, along with traditional blocks. All the pieces are compatible with the full line of TRIO bricks, sticks, and panels, so the TRIO Junior toys "grow" with your child. The My 1st Blocks set includes 51 multi-colored pieces in a clear vinyl storage bag. The set is available in either primary colors or pastel colors.
Why It’s Fun
The inclusion of more than just blocks (the rolling car, for example) in the My 1st Blocks set allows kids to build and play. The pieces are easy for young children to put together—or knock down so they can build something else. Young children will like playing and building with the age-appropriate TRIO Junior blocks and then adding them to TRIO sets as they get older.
Who It’s For
TRIO Junior My 1st Blocks is for ages 12 months and up.
What to Be Aware of
TRIO blocks for older children should not be mixed in with this set. Children should begin playing with the original TRIO blocks at age 3.
