Wooden LIDL toys: are they worth it?
Have you heard of Lidl’s wooden toys? Surely you’ve heard wonders about them, and you don’t know very well if they are worth it or not.
LIDL toys 2020
What is promised is debt! I can already share a preview with some of the Lidl 2019 wooden toys, and eye that comes better than ever:
If you are interested in the kitchenette, I advise you to take a look at this post about wooden kitchens, since every year there are more price-adjusted options, and you may decide not to wait for Lidl’s.
I must tell you that, although in the Lidl catalog it said that the kitchenette would only be sold online, they have just announced that they will sell it in store coinciding with Black Friday, and also $ 10 cheaper. If they usually run out in minutes, this time I think it will be crazy.
In those cases they indicate it in the catalog, and also put when they will go on sale. As you can see there is a lot of variety, and more than adjusted prices; If you compare the price of these toys with others of the same characteristics, you will see that they are really cheap, in some cases they cost half that of other brands. In addition, since last year you can buy online , which is undoubtedly a great advantage, because you do not have to play it to get the toy you want in the store. They were taking time to implement it and that they have finally done it this year will certainly make our lives a little easier.
Our opinion on LIDL toys
A few years ago we were lucky enough to get us a box with some of Lidl’s wooden toys, so we could meet them. The truth is that I had already heard about them, but I had doubts that you probably have now: will they really be so good? Is it worth it to get them? Especially the train has a lot of fame, for two reasons: for its good quality and its very tight price. Wooden toys, in general, are more expensive, a wooden toy can cost twice as much as a plastic one, and if it becomes fashionable I don’t even tell you. Surely that’s why Lidl’s toys have become so famous. They are top quality toys, made of wood from ecologically managed forests.
So, although we had considered taking the train when my child was two years old, we finally discarded it, because my child has never been very vehicles, so we thought he would not pay attention to it.
During the first month since he was sent, he played with him almost every day, and it has been one of the toys he has used the most, in general. You can imagine our surprise! And best of all, not only does he play; the little one is also excited, immediately learned to fit the pieces of the rails; Turning on the train and stopping it hallucinates him, he uses the ramp as a togoban for the dolls, in short, both spend long periods playing with him.
The remote control train is also highly recommended, with its remote control to travel forward, reverse and stop. The same can be done with the buttons at the top.
With this good experience, the following years we did not think about it and we started to increase its collection, knowing that it was a safe bet.
What we liked most is undoubtedly the quality of these toys; In addition, in general they do not have small pieces, which allows the two to play safely. A detail that I liked a lot is that all the vehicles come with the two magnets, so that they can hook them to the train. Outcome? that hook them, of course. They love to make kilometric trains, it makes them very funny. If they are not on your list, I advise you to incorporate either the set of vehicles or one of the vehicles with a trailer, they are great to complete the train.
The same goes for train complements; the airport, the garage, etc., can be connected to the tracks, so that you are integrating and increasing the play area. The garage has a plus, which is that it has an elevator, something that makes them a joke; the smurf occasionally remembers and dedicates himself to putting cars through the hole and trying to raise and lower them.
Today (we have had it for two years) it is still one of the toys that both use the most, they have a great time taking out everything and riding different options. Such a good result gave us that last year we were very attentive to the exit of the toys to go for them, and this year we will repeat, do not doubt, because there are always super interesting news.
LIDL wooden toys; Which are the most recommended?
In this, as in everything, it depends a lot on the boy or girl we have at home, but in truth there are toys that usually succeed in all the houses, and that is why they are highly recommended. These are the ones that seem to me most recommended in this year’s catalog:
The train or the wooden highway
These are the three packs (or similar) that they usually put on sale; its price, $ 19.99 is a real bargain; You will not find anything that looks like it from a distance for such a low price. The train, the highway or the highway, any of the versions, the one that you like the most or the least anger you give. They are always a success, for boys and girls of all ages ; With the little ones (under three years old) we must remove some small pieces that come in the accessories. But what are properly the tracks and trains (or cars) are perfectly fit, at least those of previous years were, I do not see how they cease to be. Totally advisable to add a pack or two of extra cars, because they come magnetized and can be joined to the train. And if you already have tracks from other years or other brands, the remote control train that comes loose is probably compatible What I like most about this toy is that all vehicles come with magnets, so they can be attached to be part of the train. Also come the additional vehicles that usually put up for sale: fire engine, police car, ambulances … as well as some additional remote control train. And the remote control also have very successful sounds. The train and accessories are undoubtedly the best of Lidl’s toys.
The Lidl wooden kitchenette
It is a very complete and beautiful kitchenette, and also with a very tight price: $ 59.99 But, unlike what happens with the rest of Lidl wooden toys, there are many alternatives available with similar prices , as you can see in the comparison I prepared of kitchens ; I recommend you take a look because when you see the options I give you it is quite possible that you decide NOT to buy the lidl
The pirate ship
New from last year, it seems to me another safe bet. And don’t tell me those pirates don’t cool everything! The figures are compatible with the rest of wooden toys, which is certainly an advantage.
The marble circuit
At the time they recommended it to me for the little one, to work fine motor skills, and I can tell you that both she and the elder play a lot with him. To play with the little ones, supervision is necessary, because of the danger that a marble will be swallowed, but that is not why you discard it, it is a highly recommended toy and that you enjoy a lot creating new circuits.
