You probably remember having a Jack in the Box toy when you were a kid. Maybe it had a clown in it? Since we’re all in agreement these days that clowns are just creepy, this new version of the classic kids pop up music toy has a friendly roo and baby joey instead! It’s a great Australian toy for Australian kids that will delight younger kids and even keep older kids entertained!
Wind the handle on the side of the box and you’ll hear the “Pop Goes the Weasel” melody. You never know when it’s going to happen, but at some point…POP…up comes the roo to surprise you! It’s a wonderful old fashioned “no batteries required” toy for toddlers – they’ll be able to work it on their own with a little bit of help and this kind of toy surprisingly keeps them busy for hours!
The outside of the tin shows a classically Australian scene with a dusky outback landscape featuring a kangaroo with her joey and other iconic Australian images including the Uluru/Ayers Rock landmark.
The Roo in a Box toy is a perfect gift idea for grandparents to give to their grandkids for Christmas or a birthday! It’s a classic toy with a new spin that will remind them of their own childhood and give a sense of tradition through old-fashioned toys that are still relevant for today’s kids.
