The Jumbo the Jet Shape Sorter Remote Control Airplane is just one of the many great products from The Learning Journey. My son was very excited to receive this toy. He has had an obsession with airplanes for almost a year now. I was happy that it was a toy he would enjoy and there was also an educational factor to it, as well. 

There are two different modes of shape sorting (see video below). One that encourages them to find a certain shape and color. Then there is another that will simply tell them the shape and color they are inserting. Of course, I had to test it out myself. It is also very durable. They toy is for 18 months and up; however, our son is three and it survives his rough play. 

It also ended up being a bonding experience between Daddy and Son. It took our little guy a bit to understand how it worked exactly. He would walk a little too far away and expect it to still work. Even though he was out of range, he was pretty far away. You don’t have to be directly next to the airplane with the remote. You can be several feet away. 

There are two buttons on the remote which keeps it simple enough. One button moves the airplane forward and the other one moves it backwards. While it’s strolling along, it plays a few different tunes. My sons favorite is Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. My hubby and I like when it’s rolling how it wobbles from side to side. It’s quite cute. Overall, this is a really great, simple, fun and educational toy. We are very satisfied with it. You can purchase this toy from The Learning Journey’s website or Amazon
