When it comes to creative holiday gifting, I look to the very best brands I know I can trust and rely on. It would be incredibly easy to just go through my son's wish list and start buying tons of toys to wrap and place under the tree. My wish for him, however, is that he will learn and further develop through the way he plays and interacts with others. Providing not only learning toys, but toys that encourage creativity and use of the imagination is important to me and my husband. I, in particular spend a lot of time playing with my son, and we're always looking for fun ways to add to our silly games or role playing fun.
Founded in 1946, Uncle Milton connects kids with the coolest toys, puzzles, games and more (and they're pretty educational, too!). Steph and I have both had the pleasure of reviewing some of Uncle Milton's awesome interactive products for children, including Wall Friends, Earth in My Room, and a few others. You can check out our previous Uncle Milton product reviews, here.
This season, Uncle Milton has some wonderful holiday gift options for youngseters, and we were lucky enough to receive a couple of fun products to try out!
Look what we got!
We received the Wild Walls Amazing Web Attack set!
B is totally into superheroes right now, and Spiderman just so happens to be his favorite hero of all. We had a big Spiderman themed birthday party for him back in October, and he has been begging for a room makeover with Spiderman and other Avengers heroes. Since kids change their minds so often, we like to decorate with peel and stick decals, since they don't damage the walls, and can be removed, repositioned and re-used.
Uncle Milton's Wild Walls collection brings your child's walls to life! They include peel and stick decals, and a stationary light sensor with motion and sound, which really do make the walls come to life!
B was beyond thrilled to see this special treat waiting for him!
B was so excited to get the Spiderman Amazing Web Attack Wild Walls set up in his room, that he woke his daddy up early in the morning and begged him to please put it up for him!
We emptied the box and laid the contents out.
The Amazing Web Attack set comes with a huge Spiderman decal and lots of different sized spider decals, too. Before we could set this up in B's room, however, we laid to lay the decal sheet flat (I put books on top of it) for at least 48 hours. The sheet was rolled up in the box, and needed to be flattened out before putting them on the wall, to ensure they would stick properly.
So, we patiently waited for the decals to flatten out for a couple of days.
This is the light and sound sensor included in the set.
The sensor hangs on the wall. It it recommended to place it at least 4 feet from the ground. It takes AA batteries (included), and also includes a screw for hanging. It has an auto off feature, or you can turn it off by pressing and holding the button down. It's a super easy on for your child, too. Simple press the button and watch as the wall is illuminated by red lighted spiderwebs! The sensor also plays city sounds!
I appreciated these easy to follow instructions, which suggested placement for the product on the wall.
B and his Elf, Snowflake, patiently waiting for this to be set up!
We decided that a blank area of wall over B's bed would be a great spot for the Amazing Web Attack to live. B can easily reach the on/off button from his bed, and he can lie back in his bed (at the foot) and look up and see the Amazing Spiderman in action!
We placed the decals on the wall, as suggested by the instructions.
When we turned out the lights, Spiderwebs were cast onto the wall, all around Spiderman!
With the lights back on, Spidey is hanging out and looking cool!
The Amazing Web Attack is super cool as a night light, and Spidey looks like he's jumping out from the wall!
