What is it

What our experts think
Children loved pulling the Twirlywoos Big Red Boat along the ground and this is great for encouraging walking and therefore helps strengthen arm and leg muscles, balance and coordination.
At this age children are starting to enjoy imaginative play and the familiar Twirlywoos characters are a great springboard for this. There are also lots of interactive elements such as buttons to push, nurturing curiosity and teaching children about cause and effect.
