Steggy The Fine Motor Dino Reviews

Product Tested By Bethan Lloyd – Poppy 2 Years

Bethan Awarded The Steggy The Fine Motor Dino 5/5

Looked really fun and compact, product has nice colours. I think it’s a good concept, little one enjoyed getting the scales out of the dinosaurs body and lining them up in his back, it was good to see her twisting the shape to remove them and slot them into the holes in the back. I liked the simple design of the product and thought that the idea of being able to store the pieces inside when not in use was good, only issue we had was the little door to get the pieces in and out was quite stiff to open. The instructions were clear and simple. My little one struggled sometimes to get the last piece out and struggled a little with the door but started to get the hang of it after a while. My little one was starting to learn her colours using the dinosaur, but she’s still a little young yet. She certainly knows which colour is her favourite. We counted the scales and looked at the numbers on them, we lined them up on the floor and counted them in and out, she can’t talk yet, but likes to listen to her big sister count them. Little one showed how she was able to move the pieces round to get them out of the dinosaur, she also had to learn how to pull the flap down. She also learnt to put the scales on the dinosaur and remove them before putting them back inside. This certainly helped strengthen pincer grip and improve hand-eye coordination. the pieces are small but not too small so encouraged a good grip so the piece could be moved into place. I liked the fact that the pieces were easily stored inside the dinosaur and we made it a game to make sure all the pieces were put back in. She played with the toy most days, as soon as she sees it she takes it out and we sit and play for a while, she’s happy to play with someone and on her own. This certainly kept her entertained as she loves playing with this and it is a toy she keeps going back to. it is both fun and educational as she enjoys learning through play and doesn’t get as frustrated when it’s a game. I liked the colours and compactness of the toy, and it was good that all the pieces fitted back inside. She loves taking the pieces out and slotting them in the top. Overall I thought the product is well made and finished well, the only issue we had was the flap on the back can get stuck a little bit. I think that the price of the product is about right. I would consider buying this product, my little one really enjoyed playing with it and it makes a change to have a toy that doesn’t make a noise. I would recommend this product as my little one has enjoyed playing and its multi-functional, learning colours, numbers and hand movements. Product was good fun and well made, simple but engaging. My little one loves playing with Steggy and is her go to toy at the moment, I will look for other toys from the range to compliment Steggy. Bethan Lloyd – Poppy 2 Years

I initially thought it might be too young for my little boy, it was nicely packaged and nice bright colours. Good for children to practice number recognition. Loved the design as nice bright colours, easy to slot pieces in and out. I liked the ideas it gave for different ways of learning using Steggy. My son did find this easy to use.  He understood the concept well. He was excited to see numbers on the pieces as he knows and recognises them. It helped him to revise his colours as he already knew them but it was nice to revisit them. He also knew his numbers but great to refresh his knowledge. I felt this toy was really useful for fine motor skills. I would agree this does help refine pincer grip and improve hand-eye coordination. I think this was helpful for my son and the sense of achievement was good for him. The body design of this was my favourite aspect! Keep things neat and tidy! Initially he was very attached to Steggy over the period of around 4-5 days but unfortunately Steggy lost his appeal to colouring and stickers. Though he liked that it had a name he could say, he likes dinosaurs and knows the name Stegosaurus but forgets it sometimes, he didn’t forget Steggy’s name. This did keep him entertained for a while. This is a good educational toy as there are lots of options with it, cute design too. I really liked the ability to store the pieces in its back and that it isn’t too bulky. He liked the name and being able to recognise the numbers on the pieces. Nice quality, the plastic was thinner and lighter than I expected after opening the box, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Maybe for a child a bit younger it would be good value. I am sure if we had this when he was younger would have used it more. I wouldn’t consider buying it for my son as I felt it was a bit ‘young’ for him, he’s quite ahead for his age and even though he liked it like a pet. I feel it doesn’t stand out as a really exciting toy that I would talk about, it’s very nice though and might make a nice gift for a younger child, I just don’t think it had the ‘wow’ factor. Liked the design like that it can be used for different things – numbers, colours, fine motor skills. Got my little boy’s attention straight away, he loved the name Steggy, liked saying it and was easy for him to remember. I think giving it a cute name like this is positive because he associated it with having a personality and being a friendly figure. Lucy Kibbler – Leo 2 Years 3 Months

It would be great if a larger version was made or other dinos to choose from also. Jennifer Derry – Charlotte 3 Years
