Kids connect with the characters they watch on TV, and there is no shortage of toys designed around shows that my kids watch. But every once in awhile, a toy comes along that introduces a NEW show to us, one that we were aware of but never really watched.
The show Olivia airs on Nick Jr. and now Spinmaster has taken Olivia’s personality and imagination and put them into a collection of toys geared at ages 4 and up. We were sent 2 of the toys, an Olivia 8″ Plush and an Olivia 2-in-1 Transforming Playset.
The 2-in-1 Transforming Playset is really cute!
The Olivia 2 in 1 Real World Playset Dollhouse magically transforms from Olivia’s house to her pirate ship! Open the set and play with Olivia in her house – it’s just like her real house on the show! 3 different play areas include her bedroom, kitchen and living room. When you’re ready to go on a pirate adventure, simply close the set and by opening it from the opposite side, you can magically transform her house into her pirate ship! The playset includes an Olivia figure & more than 23 accessories and stickers!
We didn’t actually open it up yet because my daughter isn’t quite 3, and some of the pieces in the set are small. It is geared towards ages 4 and up, and I do think she will be ready for it before then, but because of the size of the pieces, we decided to wait. The set is basically an Olivia dollhouse that has 2 sides, one is Olivia’s house and the other is a pirate ship. With Olivia’s signature imagination, it’s quite fitting that her house transform into a pirate ship and all the fun play opportunities that go along with it. And all the accessories are ADORABLE. Best part, when it’s all closed up you can put the accessories inside and the house serves as storage for everything so it won’t get lost. Plus it has a carry handle! It’s very clever. The only thing I can see missing from the set are some additional figures – Olivia’s family.
We did open up the Olivia plush (all ages) and Abby fell in love with it right away. She is now a big fan and very interested in everything Olivia! We received Olivia The Artist.
With the Olivia Basic Plush Doll , you can play with Olivia dressed in some of her favorite outfits from the show. High quality plush, intricate details and bendable ears make Olivia the perfect everyday carry-along friend.
She is cute and soft and Olivia and Abby watch TV together now.
I have really come to appreciate the creative aspect of Olivia, and she inspires my kids imaginations and creativity. We are now big fans of Olivia thanks to the Spinmaster toys.
You can purchase the Olivia Toys at Toys ‘R’ Us, Target and Kmart.
Thank you Team Mom and Spinmaster for providing the Olivia Toys for our review.
