Recently I found the Playskool Sit and Spin while perusing the aisle at Toys R Us. I decided to purchase one for my son who is two years old. I remember the sit and spins from when I was a child and I was hoping that he would enjoy this toy as much as I did almost 30 years ago (wow that made me feel old)!
The sit and spin is made of a hard durable plastic and is very colorful and bright. My son loves the little face that is on the round spinning handle. This toy comes with three different modes: Simon says musical mode and regular spinning. My son does not enjoy the Simon says mode. Because he is only two he is not always able to follow the directions of the toy. It should be noted that the cartoonish voice of Simon will grate on any adults nerves after only a few minutes. The musical mode is equally annoying but my don does enjoy it.
While my son does enjoy playing with this toy it is certainly not one of his favorites. He mostly pulls off the circular handle and "neck" and rolls the part that you sit on down the hall. That is the biggest drawback with this toy it that it comes apart very easily.
If you're looking for a fun toy from your youth that your own kids can enjoy then Playskool Simon Says Sit and Spin may not be the toy for you.
