I participated in this program on behalf of The Fred Rogers Company and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
I think it’s safe to say that many of us grew up watching Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. That show probably still holds a special place in our hearts to this day. I remember watching Mr. Rogers put on his red sweater and shoes right before he took us on an adventure with Trolly. There’s nothing like make-believe, or using your imagination. I love to watch my children play while using their imagination. I also love watching them enjoy Daniel Tigers Neighborhood, the way I loved Mr. Rogers!
Just like Mr. Roger’s show begins with his putting on the signature red sweater, so does Daniel Tiger! Daniel Tiger premiered on September 3, 2012, with 40 half-hour episodes in the first season. This program has ranked among the top 10 highest-rated programs for preschoolers since it’s premier! If you haven’t caught Daniel Tiger, then I suggest watching. The reason that moms rate this program among the top five highest-rated is that every half hour show will, in some way, apply to a child’s every day life, such as their first day at school, or potty training. There are several amazing episodes that come to light!
I’m eager to share some exciting Daniel Tiger news! As parents, we know pretend play is extremely important for our children, and every Daniel Tiger toy is made to inspire creativity and imagination. I was lucky enough to sit in on a Q & A about some of the new Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Toys. I can tell you that there is a lot of time and thought put into every last toy.
Daniel Tigers Neighborhood is the creation of the wonderful Fred Rogers Company! In this exciting new toy line, you will see many faces that you will recognize, such as King Friday XIII, X the Owl, Katrina Kittycat, Princes Tuesday, and more! Finally kids can bring these fabulous, well known characters to life! The new Daniel Tiger Toys are amazing, and it was great to chat with team members from Tolly Tots, Out of The Blue and The Fred Rogers Company about this amazing new line of toys. The toys are also affordable, which is a breath of fresh air for anyone with kids who love Daniel Tiger and friends. The development of this toy line was extremely thorough, as the team considered every last detail. I am sure you will notice the next time you are in the store!
Daniel Tiger Toys are available at Toys R’ US! If you have been looking for the perfect toy for your little one, you might want to consider Daniel Tiger and his friends! Not only are they amazing, but totally affordable too! I cannot tell you how excited I am for this line of toys!
My favorite pieces are the Neighborhood Friends Plush Dolls! I can tell you my toddler, Mattie, will want both the Katerina the Kittycat and Daniel Tiger plush dolls, when she finds out about them, lol. You and your little one will love these cuddly dolls, who are perfect for chatting, playing, and of course make-believe. When you press their fuzzy paws, both can say 14 different things. They even sing. You will love these plush dolls, almost as much as your little guy or girl. Be sure to check out all the fabulous characters though.
Another amazing accessory is the Bungalow Adventure set, which transforms from a house into an amazing safari adventure full of surprises, and never-ending fun. It’s comes with everything needed for the perfect adventure, complete with reversible accessories. Everything packs right into the toy for safe keeping, and easy to take when traveling on trips.
Another favorite is the Neighborhood Trolley! If you grew up watching Mr. Rogers, or now have kids who watch Mr Rogers you already know what a huge part Trolley has in the show. He’s been around for so many years, and is responsible for so many adventures I am super excited to see that Trolley is part of the new toy line. Now kids can collect Daniel Tiger and his amazing friends and load them up on the Neighborhood Trolley, for an amazing adventure, and loads of fun using their imagination. The Neighborhood Trolley also come with Daniel Tiger! Don’t tell anyone, but this is the one I am most excited to see.
The 3-in-1 Transformation Treehouse is amazing. I don’t think it would be fair to leave out the Daniel Tiger’s Treehouse to the Neighborhood Space Station, do you? No way, it’s an amazing 3-in-1 play set that is loaded with adventures! It has 13 different features, one of which is a rocket elevator! Katerina also twirls on the dance floor while the music plays, and is perfect for imaginative play.
There are several other great toys that you will want to check out, like:
- Neighborhood Friends Figures
- Neighborhood All-in-One Playset
My favorite thing about the entire line of Daniel Tiger toys is the never-ending play. The line of Daniel Tiger toys not only offers never-ending fun and adventures for kids, but as parents we can watch our kids create their own adventures. In my opinion that’s priceless!
Oh, and before I forget! If anyone has a child that loves the music to the Daniel Tiger show, you can even get the extended versions of the songs, from the show, in the iTunes store! Yepie, I know my daughter was so happy when I downloaded a few for her to jam too! Thought I would share!
But the best news of all is that this company has plans to expand their toy line. Good News Right!
