Little Tikes Lil’ Ocean Explorers 3-in-1 Adventure Course Review

You know how all babies are different?  Well, this handsome little Henry is a lot similar to his older sister and brother but also a lot different.  I’m not the only one who has noticed and have heard from others that they notice the same thing – he loves to play.  Now, I know all kids love to play but he seriously loves it.  He isn’t quite one yet, a few more weeks but he has been playing hard for months already.  He is content to sit and play with his toys for way longer than any other baby I have ever seen.

When we had the chance to review the Little Tikes Lil’ Ocean Explorers 3-in-1 Adventure Course, I knew that Henry would absolutely love it.  Whether it could stand up to my rambunctious three year old living in the house was another story.  So far, so good and I’m not surprised, after all, it is Little Tikes and we love their products because they can withstand the “use” that kids put them through.  Let me tell you about this seriously fun adventure course.

 

The Little Tikes Lil’ Ocean Explorers 3-in-1 Adventure Course arrives needing to be assembled.  I hate assembling things because I have three little “helpers”.  That 3 year old – he likes to hide things like screws so he can put them in later.  There were not a ton of pieces to assemble and most of them snap together, with the exception of the octopus who needs batteries {not included} and screws.  Once assembled, here is what you have.

 

There are three separate pieces:  The submarine, the octopus and the underwater tunnel. The pieces can be used interchangeably by snapping the pieces together.

This toy is so much fun for Henry, and to be honest, both Maggie who is almost 5 and Charlie who is 3 have fun playing there too.  Mostly they have fun playing with Henry and showing him how to do all of the things on it.  It seems like every time he plays with it he finds something else that he has fun with.
