Scuba Pocoyo and friends can float in the tub or be pushed along the floor in the water taxi.

What we thought: The kiddos really loved the water taxi both in and out of the tub. This Pocoyo toy was tested by a 2 year old and survived so you know it is pretty well-made:) A and D had a lot of fun playing with this fun Pocoyo Water Taxi. If your little one is loving Pocoyo like mine are, they would really enjoy a toy from Bandai's 2010 product launch. These are affordable, fun toys for the little ones in your life! ABCD Diaries gives the Pocoyo Water Taxi an A!

Buy It: You can find the new line of Pocoyo toys and plush, including the Water Taxi, at ToysRUs stores nationwide!
