Fisher Price Musical Teether
Advantages: brightly coloured, good teething sections
Disadvantages: heavy, expensive, boring
My mum bought my daughter the Fisher Price Musical Teether when she was about 3 months old. At the time of buying them, my mum didn't realise they were a teether toy, on the shelf they just looked like a keys rattle and as they were on offer for £2.00 she picked them up. If you have read my other reviews you will know that my daughter didn't suffer at all when she was teething so we had no use at all for a teether other than as a toy so this was just simply used as a toy.
There are three keys on this teether which are attached to a small semi circle (a sort of keyring) underneath a chunky plastic unit. The unit is blue and has three yellow buttons for your baby to press - on these buttons there is a different picture on each - a house, a car and a heart. The keys are blue, purple and red and each of them have the teether attached to them. The blue unit is attached to a green ring which enables the toy to be clipped to your baby's pram or something like that.
When pressing the buttons a little tune will play - the car plays a horn noise, the heart plays a little giggle and the house plays a short tune. In my opinion the giggle is actually really creepy and I wasn't keen at all and I don't think my daughter particularly liked it either as when she sussed out which button played what she rarely pressed that button!
I was shocked at how heavy this little toy actually is, my young daughter found it quite difficult to lift up at times and this is a real disappointment. I was a little worried that she may drop it on herself as it would have really hurt if that had happened.
The positives with this teether are that it is brightly coloured and this stimulates the baby, and the actual teething parts of the toy are very good. It is a high quality toy, my daughter did drop it from her pram on quite a few occasions but this didn't affect the toy at all and in fact it stayed in excellent condition.
The negatives with the teether are that the sounds are very hard to hear, at first we thought this was due to the fact it may need new batteries but it was exactly the same after replacing them. Also the tunes are very short which is a little disappointing to be honest. It is way too heavy for a baby, it is quite boring and I would say a standard teether would be much better!
The price of the teether seems to be around the £7.00 mark which I think is way too expensive and after having the teether I realise that I wouldn't pay more than £2.00 for it (in all honestly I wouldn't even buy it). Batteries are included with the toy, but if you need to replace them it takes the button cell batteries.
This certainly wasn't a toy that my daughter has had much enjoyment out of and I think she only played with it as much as she did because it was clipped to her pram and she had nothing else on there! I found this a bit of a disappointment, even more so as it is a Fisher Price toy so it is a real shame. I just found this to be a really boring toy, although I appreciate the fact that it is prodominantely a teething aid.
I give this two out of five stars.
Thank you for reading my review :)
Summary: A pretty pointless teether
