Overall, a unique, fun toy that is engaging for toddlers, especially ones who are obsessed with buckles. Also quite well-made-- the backpack compartment has a zipper inside so nothing falls out. The furry polyester-like fabric isn't my favorite, but it's thick and durable, and doesn't stain. Very pleased with this purchase, it would make a great first birthday gift.
Definitely a hit. She loves fastening & unfastening all the buckles, and also loves to load up the backpack with megablocks, etc. Very cute, fun, good quality, and as a functional toddler backpack - the perfect size.
She got it for Christmas and carried it around all night. She loves to buckle her booster seat and now she can buckle all day.
My toddler is 17 months old and he LOVES buckling. There are three types of buckles, and first he learned how to buckle the easiest, then the next easiest, and now he's working on the most difficult. I unbuckle them for him, and that's how he learned the word "unbuckle." So cute! There's also a nice little zipper that opens a satiny pocket. My toddler also enjoys cuddling this toy.
My daycare kids are obsessed with buckles and this is a fantastic toy to help them with not only their fine motor skills but color matching and sharing. Great toy!
It keeps my 1 1/2 year old grand daughter occupied for hours. She buckles them quicker than i can unbuckle them.
Bought this for my 2 year old as we had a 22hr plane journey to endure, and long story short, it kept him entertained on and off the plane. The buckles are good to attach to stroller or backpack easily too. Job done!
I was a little surprised, but this toy really captures my almost-2 year old boy's attention. He has learned how to both open and close the buckles and is pretty proud of himself. The nice thing about this toy is that it is sized so it fits easily in my purse or bag and its really light weight. He is the kind of kid who loves playing with objects to connect and manipulate. This is a great way to use those same skills in a different way and much more portable.
Excellent learning toy. Well made, and no doubt a good fine motor developer. Great to keep little hands busy during a car ride. My 19 month old enjoys this toy tremendously, and has much room to grow with it still - as she cannot buckle all types of the buckles yet, and cannot undo the buckles (she hands it back to me to undo). Every time she sees this toy it sparks interest. We enjoy it so much, we gift to all kids this age. One of our best finds!
My 17 month old tries to unbuckle everything, her high chair, her car seat, my shirts, her shirts, people's purses...the list goes on and on. This turtle is great for her to practice those fine motor skills. The turtle is a good size for bringing places, in the car, to church and restaurants. It also is quiet so it is a great toy for church and other places I do not want electronic toys. The toy is bright and very plush. She loves giving her turtle hugs. A great educational toy.
My grandson is only 20 months old but he loves to buckle things. He sits and plays with Bucky quietly for long periods of time while waiting in restaurants or sitting on the potty. It is good practice in matching colors and for small muscle development.
I was driving down the road one day when I glanced back and noticed my two year old son had unbuckled his carseat belt. He loves buckles! After warning him that this was unsafe, I decided I needed something with buckles for him to play with while in the car. My son loves "Bucky." Each buckle is a little different, which provides variety. Some of the buckles are more challenging than others. This is great for fine motor skills. Bucky also has a small zippered section. My son enjoys playing with the zipper and hiding his pacifier in the pouch. The numbers on the turtle and cheerful colors make it a wonderful teaching tool. Most importantly, my son no longer plays with his carseat buckle because he can practice his buckle skills with "Bucky." This is a really cute item!
5.0 out of 5 stars What a fun toy!
We love this toy, and the customer service! We needed this quickly to go on a trip overseas, and the owner expedited us the turtle. Our daughter LOVES LOVES LOVES this turtle. She is two years old and enjoys all the different buckles, the numbers, and shapes. I can't say enough again about the wonderful customer service! Thanks Buckle Toys for a great toy!
I bought Bucky to take on a five hour car trip with my 22 month old, and it was a hit. She couldn't undo the red and yellow straps by herself yet, but we spent minutes and minutes passing him back and forth. A winner.
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a child that loves buckles!
I ordered this for my twins 2nd birthday, and that was a year ago. They are still playing with Bucky and every other kid that comes in this house plays with him also (we have 2). No tears, not coming apart at all. Great toy! Order it for every kid and pregnant person you know.
