What is it
Meet Yuri, the Tickle Time Turtle! Toomies have noticed how their humans spend hours swiping their phones and tablets. With Tickle Time Turtle your little ones can join the fun! Yuri’s unique tickle sensor on his tummy requires just a tap or a swipe to respond with all sorts of surprises. He’ll laugh and giggle and make funny sounds, from springy, bouncing coils to whistles, musical scales and more. Turn his smiling face this way and that, sit him upright and press the big button on his paw to move through five different game modes – starting with Tickle Time and Tempo Change. Yuri responds to your child’s every tickle, with infectious laughter or sounds that match the pace at which they play, developing fine motor skills and helping them recognise the links between cause and effect. Lay the colourful turtle on his back for even more play options such as The Wake up Game where he’ll snore softly while lights on his tummy flash. Keep tickling to wake him up! Or give him a spin for Break Dance where you can tap his tummy to add music sounds to a fun dance track.

What our experts think
This is a cute, interactive toy that has made the children laugh non-stop. The adults modelled to the children what to do and what the turtle does before playing with it by themselves. They liked putting him on his back and watching him spin and tickling him.
Our testers thought there could have been some more added to it to keep the children engaged for longer but overall is a good, fun toy for younger children.
