We brought this for my son at Christmas. He was three months old and he could hold it as it wasn’t too heavy. He really enjoys all the sounds and his red heart! Now he’s almost 9 months old and still loves playing with it. He now uses the teethers and likes pressing the heart. The fact you can wash it is also a fab feature. Just a bit of a faff to get the electronics off!
We bought this for our little one to help her with teething and also to help keep her entertained. She takes it everywhere with her. The music is soothing as is the voice. I would definitely recommend this to any other parent, especially if you need something to soothe your little one.
Since finding out she has hands all my Lo has done is chew them, now that she’s 12 weeks old this was the perfect first toy, she dribbles on it all the time& it causes no harm to her. For some unknown reason she finds the songs hilarious which is great for both her and myself as I feel happy knowing she’s happy and it keeps her occupied while she’s awake. It’s easy to clean, hopefully will last a good few months if not I’m more than happy to pay out for another.
The teething feet. The songs. Small enough that little hands can hold it
Only a few sayings /songs repeated over and over
Ease of use
I was bought this as a gift for my daughter when she was around 8weeks old. She liked the different textures and would look at the heart when the songs were playing.
As she got older she found it easy to pick up as it's small and light. She was also able to press the button herself from a relatively early age as it is prominent and easy to push. This was great for her confidence, hand eye coordination and her understanding of cause and effect as she continued to grow.
Once she started teething the feet, and the rest of the toy, became useful as it helped her gums. She's now 9months and still enjoys playing with this toy.
The only downside is it only has a few songs that repeat. And when baby learn to press the button themselves you have to listen to them a million times. But other than that I have had no issues.
Well worth the money and would make a perfect gift for anyone having a baby. Or your own little one.
My son has had this at our house since he was about 12 weeks old but he also has the exact same toy at my Mums and loves it! He’s now 6 months and knows that if he hits the heart it will play music to him. I’m not going to lie, ours is starting to get a bit gruby now as he’s had it at his high chair a few times too so there’s a few different purée stains I can’t get out!
It’s colourful and cheerful
Gets his attention quickly
Light weight so he can hold it and use the feet for teething
Plenty of songs to keep him entertained
I wish I could throw it in the washer to clean it but that’s not more my fault for getting it so dirty in the first place!
I would definitely recommend this product, it’s lovely
Light and easy for baby to hold. Perfect for small babies
Ease of use
Absolutely adore this toy- not only is it baby’s favourite but also Mine. We have this in the car everyday and since my boy was 3 months old and he was able to grab this it has not left his side. The textures amaze him and now he is teething the feet provide a perfect munching surface. Bye hi we’re so clever in the design as you can remove the electrical component with complete ease and wash the rest of the toy. We have washed many times and it is still as good as new.
Good variety of songs and great quality - have since bought for many other babies as gifts.
