Review by Lottie age 6 with help from Mum and photos by Luke
I LOVE teddies and I love collecting things so the new range of Lumo Stars collectable soft toys by Tactic Games are brilliant!
Sam and I each received a soft toy from the range and a keyring mini toy. They are awesome. I love them because they are so soft, they are really cute and they have big shiny eyes.
All the Lumo Stars are different animals and they come with a label telling you their name. Sam’s teddy is called Camo and mine is called Uggla.
If you download the Lumo Stars app you scan your toys’ label and add them to be able to play games with them. You can find lots of things out about them like their birthday and their favourite things and then you can play games with them. The app is really good because it has something for older children and easier things for younger children. Sam really likes to borrow Daddy’s phone to feed Camo and to put him to bed and I like to play the games with mine.
The keyrings are really nice, they are just as soft as the actual teddies and they fit perfectly on book bags and my ballet bags, I can clip them off and play with them at playtime too!
I like the way you can play with the Lumo Stars on the app as well as playing with them in real life. I would like to collect more of them, they are so cuddly and there are lots of really cute ones.
We both really love our teddies, Uggla lives in my bed and is perfect to cuddle at night and Sam takes Camo EVERYWHERE with him- he won’t go to sleep at night unless Camo is back in his bed though!
A note from Mum
The Lumo Stars plushes are really very sweet, they are well made and withstanding a lot of love (and a bit of being dragged around by a toddler!) The children love the crossover between a traditional toy and the technology that comes with the app but I like the fact that you can put a stop to the screen time fairly quickly by telling them it’s time to put the toy to bed. Even the music on the app is designed to be quite peaceful so it is very age appropriate.
I can see these being very popular with children from 3 upwards and there are so many choices so I am sure there will be something for everyone. They come is keyring size which is 8.5cm , classic size 15cm and big 24cm and prices start from just £3.99.
