Product Review: Manny and Simon Push Toys


Have you heard about Manny and Simon?


Maybe you saw their Dino Push Toy on Modern Family a few nights ago?

We were given a few of their push toys and my kids are kind of obsessed with these eco-friendly animals! They’re a lot bigger than I expected; I couldn’t tell what size they would be by looking at the site but was pleasantly surprised when they arrived.

The Dino is 12″ high by 12″ long, the Duck is 9″ high by 12″ long, the Snail is 7″ high by 11″ long and the Fish is 7″ high by 12″ long.


My 3-year-old likes to pretend he’s riding the Dino while my 1-year-old prefers to make vrooom, zooom and quack sounds while pushing the Duck all around.


The ergonomic built-in handle makes it easy for children of all ages to push, pull and transport. The wheelbase is sturdy for floor play and helps ease frustration with younger children (read: they don’t topple over easily).


All the toys are sleek and modern, which makes mommy happy (and much more willing to display throughout the house) and the simple design allows children to use their imaginations while playing– is the duck happy today? Maybe the fish is blowing bubbles…

Wouldn’t this be a cute decoration in a nursery? Then, when baby gets older, it becomes a functional toy.

Every Manny and Simon toy is made in the USA with 100% post-industrial recycled wood residuals and painted with non-toxic, ultra low odor, zero VOC (volatile organic compounds), and zero carcinogen paint. The wheels are 2.5″ in diameter, made from sustainably-managed solid wood and securely attached. The toys are suitable for ages 6 months and up and have no small pieces that pose a choking hazard.

Even the tags are printed on recycled paper!
