Wenda the Wacky Wiggler- Interactive Storybook - Apple

Janice Croze, 5 Minutes for Mom co-founder, shares a look into the Wenda the Wacky Wiggler Interactive Storybook and a chance to win a $75 Visa Gift Card. This post is sponsored, but all opinions remain those of the writer.

I got this as a Christmas gift for my 6-year old as a more age-appropriate alternative to the massive lego sets that he was asking for (big brother is a major legomaniac.) We spent about an hour building one of the creations in the included booklet and it was a lot of fun. We were both able to put pieces together, although some of the gears required a little finessing/jiggling to fit into place. The end product was really cool -- it had a lot of different components flashing and clicking, and with the motorized movement it was quite a spectacle. (One drawback -- if your batteries die, you can't push the wacky wiggler back and forth manually.) The connecting pieces are hard to separate when you are ready to disassemble -- big hands are definitely needed. The pieces are a good size and color that keeps them from getting lost under the fridge and such (does that only happen at our house?)

The Wacky Wiggler is an extremely tactile stress reliever. With a solid core and a stretchy skin this toy makes it an addictive hand toy that is hard to put down. Pull on the cord and get ready to watch it wiggle like crazy! The unique feel and qualities of the Wacky Wiggler are great for relieving stress.
