Julius Jr. Julius' Invento-Cycle Review #JuliusJrPack #Chatterbox #toyreview #Fisher-Price
My two sweet little's have recently discovered Julius Jr. and fell instantly fell in love with the show, so when the opportunity to review Fisher-Prices' Julius Jr. Invento-Cycle came about I was ecstatic! The package arrived a few weeks after I was notified by email that my family had been considered for the Julius Jr. Chatterbox. In my Chat Pack full of wonderful goodies we got:
- 1 Julius Jr. Invento-Cycle
- 1 Julius Jr. coloring page
- 1 Activity sheet
- 6 Coupons for additional Julius Jr. toys or play sets (to share with friends and family)
The Fisher-Price websites states the Invent-Cycle is for ages 2 and up. It features a vehicle that "zooms along when pulled back" and a removable figure (Julius Jr.). You can purchase the toy directly from their website for $12 or find it in a store near you.
My son was really excited to rip into his new toy the minute it was delivered to our front door. I was only able to distract him long enough with the help of the Julius Jr. coloring page to take a few pictures. His little sister got a little jealous that there was only one coloring page so I had to whip out a coloring book for her to keep them from arguing over the who got to color what and which color to draw with.
It didn't take them long to complete their "masterpieces". Nor did it take them long to learn the pull back mechanism to make Julius Jr. race forward across our hardwood floors. My little princess had a hard time with puling it back far enough (but since she is only 15 months I was expecting that). Her brother however had no problem with getting him to "race fast" as he kept yelling every time he let Julius Jr. speed past. My toddler's only issue was the Julius Jr. removable figurine would fall out of the cycle sometimes.
Once my son mastered the pull back method he got more adventurous on where he sent the cycle zooming off too. Jumping ramps and flying down the front porch stairs were just a few dare devil stunts he had Julius Jr. complete. My kids can be pretty rough on toys so after about an hour of dare devil stunts I am pleased to see that Julius Jr. and his cycle are proving to be very well made and will last to achieve many more adrenal pumping stunts.
