Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toddler & Mommy approved! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Carlos the count & pop cactus has easily become one of my daughter's favorite toys to play with. She doesn't usually play with her toys longer than 10 minutes but this one seemed to grasp her attention since it has so many ways to interact with it. The ridges on the flowers fit nicely in a toddlers hands and I love how the base stores all the pieces nicely. My only complaint is that the toy is somewhat light weight so it easily tips over. Its not much of a deal breaker for me though since my daughter loves the toy. (I did receive the product for free in exchange for writing the review)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very durable! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My baby throws this toy around so much and it has not broken at all! Very durable for a baby that's rough with their toys. The only downside is the you have to pull very hard to get the flowers out so my baby hasn't really been pulling them out. I think once she really figures it out she will love it even more. She loves to use the bottom pot part to put other toys in so I basically got two free toys instead of one lol. I received this toy for free in exchange for my honest review and I'm very happy with it. I love that each part has numbers so that you can teach your baby how to count. Great toy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this toy to others. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am happy to write this review in exchange for the free Carlos the Count and Pop Cactus. I can honestly say that my 1 year old daughter prefers this toy above most others. The texture on the pieces, sticking them into the holes, and attempting to pull the pieces out of the holes (we're still working on this one). I enjoy using it to interact with her as well. The numbers and colors of the pieces make for quality, educational play time. I would highly recommend this product to others.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute toy [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My son loved playing with this toy. It is bright and beautiful to look at. Has plenty of room to store all the little pieces. It's educational. My only complaints though very small would be that the cactus is very light weight and falls every time My son attempts to place a flower in the holes and that it's a little difficult to get the flowers in and out of the holes. They get stuck a lot and leave my son feeling a bit discouraged so he ends up picking up the cactus and walking around the house with it. I will continue to practice the proper use of the toy with him because I really do like the design and know he will eventually catch on but for now it'll be his carry around toy. All in all my son does love playing with this toy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So adorable! I bought this for my classroom and my son tested it out. It's adorable! He absolutely loved it! He was naming colors and numbers while putting them in. Now I need to get him one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect toy for baby! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My baby LOVES this cactus! She loves the colorful flowers and thorns that come with it. The first day it arrived, she played with it all day long. She even brought it with her to the car. She loves storing all the pieces inside the cactus. It's helped her with her hand movement precision. Buy this toy for your kids! They'll love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun educational took [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My daughter loves this toy. We count the leaves/flowers and look at the numbers on them. We also name each of the colors as we pull them off or put them back on. We are at the very early stages of counting and colors but this is going to help.
