The Doctor Is In! Schylling Toys - Review & Giveaway! CLOSED

It was Carina's lucky week this week! She received not one, but two fantastic toys for imaginative play from Schylling Toys. Schylling specializes in classic toys; their philosophy is that toys shouldn’t be complicated and they don’t have to be trendy. They don’t have to talk to you, and you don’t need a computer to play with them. The best toys don’t even need electricity! They are powered by hand and imagination. We can certainly relate to this philosophy. While Carina has some electronic toys, Mike and I try to limit her time in front of screens and opt for imaginative toys whenever we can.

Schylling has had the same mission for more than 30 years: To create a unique collection of products that offer a variety and distinctive appeal to all. We focus on new products, new concepts and new play patterns with a variety of price-points to satisfy the ever changing appetite of the consumers. Continually updating our products allows them to never go out of style.

We received the Doctor's Bag and Musical Tin Tea Set.

Doctor's Bag

Carina has been having a blast playing with the Doctor's Bag. Made of vinyl, it snaps open and shut and houses 8 different doctor's tools including a stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, medicine bottle, syringe, reflex hammer, auriscope, thermometer, and medical tongs. Carina's favorite thing to do is put the stethoscope around her neck and listen to her monkey's heartbeat. She also enjoys when I put it around my neck and listen to hers. She'll repeat the "ba-boom ba-boom ba-boom" sound I make.

She also runs around with the reflex hammer yelling, "hammer!" and loves to move the stopper in and out of the syringe. As she grows and her motor skills develop I can only imagine the fun we'll have with this. Now how to get her from trying to bang on the baby with the reflex hammer? Haven't figured that one out yet...

Musical Tin Tea Set

I have to be honest. When I first found out I was having a girl, all those clich├ęd visions of tea parties, stuffed animals, and cute pink dresses swirled around in my head. If you had showed me this photo of my beautiful girl in a pink dress having a tea party with stuffed animals? ::mindblown::

At Carina's party, she served her imaginary tea with the Musical Tin Tea Set from Schylling to her best friend Monkey and other pals the Philly Phanatic & Violet. The tea set includes service for 4 (large plate, small plate, & cup), a serving tray, and musical teapot! At first, I thought the teapot was broken, as I wound it up and nothing played. Carina figured out that you have to tip it, as if you're pouring tea, and it plays "I'm a Little Tea Pot". She loves the music and will "pour" her tea for extended periods of time to listen to it ;)

Please don't tell anyone, but I've actually given Carina little sips of coffee in one of the tea cups. She tries to steal mine every morning and begs for it, "coffee! coffee!" I'm afraid I'm creating a monster...

Schylling has a wide variety of fun, classic toys. Some of my favorites include the Brio train collection (I had a Brio train set when I was little!), the Thomas Tool Box, the Musical Instruments, and the Sock Monkey.

One lucky winner can choose either the Tea Set or Doctor Bag! Carina has so much fun with both; you just can't go wrong.
