Kazoops toys have arrived

This is a sponsored post written in collaboration with Cheeky Little Media.

The news all Kazoops fans have been waiting for…Kazoops toys have been released! The full toy range includes plush toys, figurines, play sets and games and we here in the Kids Gifts and Toys household are super pumped to see them available.

The plush toys were released last month by Tomy in Australia and feature Monty, Lily the Alien, Suzy the Dinosaur, Otis the Warthog and our household fave Jimmy Jones. This month they have also launched in the UK via  Toys “R” US  and Amazon.

If you have missed the boat and don’t know what Kazoops is all about, it is an awesome animated preschool series by Sydney-based Cheeky Little Media, which inspires kids to use their imagination to explore answers to every day questions… A super engaging and fun tv show that we love in this household.

The 78 x seven-minute series aimed at preschoolers is about a six-year-old boy named Monty who has a best mate called Jimmy Jones, but he isn’t just any old person, Jimmy Jones is the family’s pet pig!

Initially screening in the UK on CBeebies in June 2016, it then launched to much success in August on ABC Kids Australia. It is now showing on Netflix worldwide since the end of 2016.

It has growing fan base amongst kids, parents and even medical professionals with its fun animation, brilliant use of music and the ability to teaches kids the importance of imagination and critical thinking. Each episode has Monty dreaming and imagining how he would solve problems.

Child Development Expert, Dr Jacqueline Harding recently reviewed Kazoops! and wrote “When you have a TV show which is about imagination it provokes critical thinking and what that does for the child’s brain is immensely important. It helps the mind and the brain resonate at a much higher level. So their cognitive function is at the peak of it’s performance… What we want are children to be able to think of solutions to problems that maybe we’ve made in the world…. So when they grow up they’ve got that kind of flexibility of thinking… They’ve got that attitude of “You know what? We’ve got challenges but we can find ways that are solutions”...”

My boys absolutely adore Kazoops, it is a TV show that really resonates as it is all about looking at the world through a child’s eyes and in particular Monty and his unique outlook on life. They are super excited to see the toys released and I think I know what they would like from Santa for Christmas!

Tomy launched the toys last month in Australia and all 5 are now available at Toys “R” US and Jimmy Jones is available at Big W (only in store, not online). Our favourite is the 30cm Jimmy Jones because when you squeeze him, he “OINKS”, just like in the TV show! Seriously he is pretty darn cute.

We have this whole set of plush toys, 5 in total, valued at $100 to giveaway to our Kazoops fans.  We are hosting this awesome giveaway in conjunction with Cheeky Little Media and Kazoops on my Instagram, Facebook and here on the blog.

    My daughter is two years old tomorrow and she’s been watching since she’s been about 9 months. It’s her favorite show! She always asks for it even over Dory, Moana, Frozen, etc. She’ll say “Monty, Monty, Monty” and we ask if she wants to watch Kazoops and she’ll respond “ok”. The songs are so great and catchy and every episode is a fun adventure and has great lesson. 5 stars all around! Sad we can’t get the plush toys here in the US yet ?. Would have been her Birthday gift for sure! Maybe Santa will come through.

    Little Miss loves Kazoops. She’s always singing their song, and it’s her favorite DVD presently, it’s the only DVD she’ll watch. She also dances and talks to the characters. It’s adorable to watch her so happy

    My son LOVES Kazoops. His first birthday was Kazoops themed with a homemade Jimmy Jones cake and for the last year and a bit, he’s pretty much watched it everyday. He loves the songs, colors and of course, how cheeky Jimmy Jones is.
    We have been searching endlessly for a Jimmy Jones (we live in Canada) but to no avail! This is Henry’s last Christmas as an only child and we have been planning to give him a Jimmy Jones since it first became public they were making the toys. We are so desperate because we know it would friggen make his dreams come true to have Jimmy Jones tag along on all his adventures with mom and dad ❤?

    My goodness!!! My daughter watches Kazoops everyday!! She is 2 1/2 with Down syndrome and Autism. This is the only cartoon that has caught her attention. She loves the colors, music and of course Jimmy Jones. Not only that, our whole family sings along and randomly quotes Monty and the gang!! We have been so excited about these toys and desperately need them here in the US!!!

    My little monkey Summer loves Kazoops. She is LOVES the Swamp Song the best for some reason, and seems fascinated. Normally she is easily distracted, but not when Kazoops are on. All the characters get a thumbs up from us 🙂 xx
