Oompa Toys offers creative options for families seeking alternatives
to plastic, batter-operated toys. Their
high quality toys delight children with whimsical painting and fun details,
while encouraging them to play creatively. My family of five has been
continuously impressed by the toys we’ve received from Oompa, from the Haba Moo
and Baa Game, to the Janod Xylo Roller, to the Body Magnet Puzzle.
using their imaginations to build puzzles, match colors, play music, and engage
in a family game. The quality of the toys from Oompa mean they will endure
through multiple children and I find that many of them appeal to kids of
varying ages. While the prices reflect the modern design, quality
craftsmanship, and desire to be eco-friendly, they are still competitive for
fun, enduring toys that your family will treasure.
While navigating the Oompa website, I also appreciate the
ability to search by age, brand, or category. If I know part of the name or
general category, the general search engine is also helpful. The pictures of products
are vibrant and the detailed descriptions really help when selecting a toy. You
can easily create a registry or access a friends. I enjoy simply visiting the
site with my kids and looking through the creative toy options.
Whenever I’ve communicated with Oompa or visited their
facebook page, I am always impressed by their desire to bring the best to
customers and truly engage them. They seek toy testers on a regular basis,
sending toys to customer’s homes to try out and to contribute honest feedback
to assist other customers in t heir buying choices. I enjoy being a customer of
Oompa and appreciate their commitment to offering enduring, educational toys.
Oompa recently invited facebook fans to apply to be toy testers by identifying toys they would like to try and sharing them on facebook. I applied through my personal facebook account and was thrilled to be chosen to review what I believed would be one toy for my family. After I communicated with the company’s representative, Jackie, she immediately shipped out a box to my family. When it arrived, we were thrilled to discover four toys inside for my family to test!
We loved trying out the following toys and you can see my reviews (Iowa City) alongside them at Oompa Toys.
The Tatoo Xylo Roller Musical Toy was my surprise favorite and I highly recommend this if you have a toddler in your life!
The Janod Body Magnet Puzzle proved a big success with the kids and a fun companion to the books we’ve checked out on how the body works. This is one of Ezra’s current fascinations.
The Robots Chunky Puzzle is ideal for little hands and can be used as a traditional puzzle or a mix and match stacking game.
The fun and funky Janod Rock Star Guitar proved a big hit with my kids, but requires tuning and kids need to be mature enough to care for it.
Thanks to Oompa Toys for allowing us to participate as Toy Testers! We had a fantastic time and we’ll definitely be visiitng Oompa in the future.
