Children are known for their imaginations, but sometimes it helps to have a toy that inspires children to use their imaginations while at play. With its Doctor Seuss inspired design, the Little Tikes Hide and Seek Climber is just what your little one needs to get their imagination into high gear.
As a climber, this toy has everything your child needs to develop their coordination and have fun with their friends. This is a great climber toy for a group of children to enjoy, or it can be the type of toy that keeps an individual child entertained for hours.
With the exception of its child-like design, there is nothing fancy about the Little Tikes Hide and Seek Climber. It is made up of a climbing wall, a play platform and a slide. The play platform has two high walls that have a bit of a whimsical design to them, and two small windows each.
Each section is assembled using a tab and slot configuration, and the slots are strategically placed to assist your little one in using the climber safely.
For instance, the slots where the climbing wall attaches to the play platform are positioned in such a way that your child can use the slots to safely climb onto the platform. It is little design tricks like these that make this climber something your child can safely enjoy.
The current retail price through online retailers for the Little Tikes Hide and Seek Climber is $79.99, which does not take into account any discounts or special pricing offers any retailers may have. Little Tikes recommends that this toy be used by children ranging in age from 12 months to four years old.
The Little Tikes Hide and Seek Climber looks fun when it is put together, but it is made up of only a few parts. Those parts are:
The spartan design of the Hide and Seek Climber means that there are not a lot of extra parts parents have to worry about. But there are also no decals or designs to give the toy any color or character.
The Little Tikes Hide and Seek Climber also has a couple of elements that are basically for show. Those elements are:
Aside from its slide and climbing wall, there is not much for children to interact with on the Hide and Seek Climber. But the toy is built so low to the ground that it can still be a source of hours of fun for any child. It is also built using durable plastic parts that have rounded edges, which means that your children will be safe on a climber that will last for many years.
The Hide and Seek Climber requires some assembly, but its lightweight design makes it easy to handle. It can be used indoors or outdoors, but parents should be sure to put it on a flat surface that is offers a soft place for their children to land.
Step2 offers a climber called the Sportstastic Activity CTR that is similar to the Little Tikes Hide and Seek Climber, but with more interactive parts.
The theme with the Sportstastic Activity CTR is sports, which it emphasizes with baseball and basketball themed interactive elements. The Step2 toy also has a slide and high side panels, in the same vein as the Little Tikes Hide and Seek Climber.
For folks who prefer to stay within the same brand, the Little Tikes First Slide is not quite as elaborately designed as the Hide and Seek Climber, but it is a very similar toy. The First Slide toy is a short slide attached to a ladder with safety grips at the top of the ladder. It is everything a child would need to get started with the entire playground experience.
While there are many climber toys out there, those two above are just some quick comparisons shoppers may want to consider before pulling the trigger on this model shown here.
So to conclude, children enjoy toys that spur their imaginations, and that is exactly what the Little Tikes Hide and Seek Climber does. With its fun design and durable construction, this is the type of climber your children will enjoy for years.
