Maukilo HABA Flapping Frank Toddler Push Toy Review [CLOSED Giveaway]

Screen shot 2011-12-13 at 3.53.34 PM

Screen shot 2011-12-13 at 3.56.37 PMI have always loved “traditional” toys… wooden toys… toys that encourage imaginative play. When Maukilo contacted me to review one of their HABA push toys I was excited! I have a little girl on my Christmas list that I would love to share a quality wooden toy with.

Flap, flap! Your little one will love flying around with Pushing Animal Flapping Frank! Frank’s pretty colors and flapping wings put a smile on everyone’s face!

Flapping Frank arrived in a well padded perfectly sized box. I am impressed at the quality build of this toy the minute I took it out of the package. There was a tag wrapped around the handle that I tried to read… and then burst out laughing because it mostly in foreign languages. I finally found the English translation and found:

“Chirp, chirp – Frank flaps his wings as if wanting to fly. When pushed his wings rattle cheerfully. Material beech wood. Dimensions w 11 x l 14 x h 12 cm, length of pushing rod approx. 55 cm.”


This particular push toy is not meant for the beginner walker, but a more established walker with balance… around 18 months and up. It is designed to enhance balance and motor skills, but yet be fun and encouraging. When pushed, the wheels spin and the colorful flapping butterfly wings bring Frank to life while your child plays (and learns).

There are tiny strips of rubber on each of the wheels to help with traction so the wheels will spin and Frank will flap. Unlike a lot of other push toys, this particular one does not require much downward force to work. I gently pushed it while walking and the wheels and wings functioned properly and easily. I tested it both on wood and a rug… both no problems. I can’t wait to see my recipients pretty little face light up and hear the flap flap this toy makes when she plays with it.

This toy could be passed down for generations and become an heirloom. Wooden toys are timeless.
