I was excited to have stumbled upon this company (you can understand why) and thrilled when they agreed to send me their 3 Men in a Tub toy. Holly (my 13-month old) has really enjoyed playing with it. When the toy first arrived in the mail she’d hold one man in each hand and the third in her mouth. I love that this toy has helped her develop some fine motor skills. She can now place each man in each hole, right-side up, and take them out again. She’ll do this repeatedly as well as some other things with it, like stick them in her mouth and twist them around, or try to hold two men with one petite hand. My husband and I discovered that it’s a great quiet toy and it keeps children’s attention for an impressive amount of time. In fact, it’s a favorite not only of Holly’s, but also of some of the other children her age that we attend church with. There’s even enough men to share!
The price of this toy is outstanding – only $10! Wooden toys can be a bit on the pricey side because of course, they last so much longer and are more involved to produce. This toy has the quality and an incredibly affordable (dare I say cheap?) price tag. Holly’s received so much fun and learning from this toy and so will any other children I have. Plus, our 3 Men in the Tub toy is such high quality that I know I’ll be storing it away for when my children are grown and we have other infants visit or I have grandchildren.
North Star Toys make a wonderful gift for baby showers, birthdays, Christmas… you name it! I love the Nativity they make and the Little Rollie Whale. The prices, the building process and the company just makes sense. These are fantastic toys. -Katie
