Number Lovin Oven
We conducted an informal poll of various counting toys that our testers had come across and no one had ever seen a number teaching toy that utilizes an oven. That doesn’t mean it can’t work and in the hands of LeapFrog’s creative team, odds were it’d work out just fine. Voila! It did. The Number Lovin’ Oven is a terrific mix of colorful, whimsical entertainment that includes an excellent level of educational content. The toys color scheme is vibrant and eye-catching. The oven’s voice, the various sound effects (like a frying egg on the stovetop) and the variety of number based songs are jolly and friendly. Parents liked how the included foods all break down into multiple pieces. One egg, 2 cupcakes, 3 slices of bread and a pizza that splits into 4 slices. All of the pieces (including the plates and spatula) pack perfectly inside the oven so you really have an easy to clean up and easy to transport toy. This is a toy that is suitable for individual play as well as interactive play together with a parent or friend.
