Advantages: Multi functional
Disadvantages: Silver bits all over
Dont get me wrong, I love this octopus, as does my seven month old baby, the tentacles are all different, furry, musical, etc. He especially loves the crinkly one.
The thing is, over the past few weeks I've noticed that when he plays with the toy, he ends up with the silver (from the millenium one) all over his face. At first I couldn't figure out what it was, then I noticed that the octopus has white patches that used to be silver. Surely this isn't right? I did want to keep this toy as one of the baby keepsakes that you keep forever and embarrass them when they're eighteen, but this doesn't look like it'll last eight more months, never mind years.
I contacted Boots, and they advised me that they would refund me fully, but that they dont actually have any of the shiny octopus' left in stock, as its a special edition, I have since decided to keep the shiny one, as it was bought specially for the millenium. Although I am still not happy at the bits coming off, I now keep it away from Callum, and he is getting too old for it now.
