“ Brand: ELC / Age: Newborn „
This Busy Bee kept my son amused when he was first developing his eye focus - he really did try hard to concentrate and look at the toy and the fact that the wings crinkle and make a noise was great for catching his attention and stopping him crying. He also learnt to kick the wings with his feet and make the noise himself. However as my son is now 8 months he hasnt shown much interest in the bee - i suspect it is because it doesnt make any musical noise because it ticks the boxes for being colourful and it does have parts for him to explore in the feet that have a mirror and a mini butterfly to pull out but i am afraid it just isnt exciting enough for him. He does still like the mini bee that buzzes and moves back into place but again it only grabs his attention for a few mins im afraid although looking at it from an adult perspective you would think it would interest him more.
This to anyone with babies The ELC bust bee is the first toy my son ever picked for himself so it brings positive memories for me.
Despite it been an ELC toy I bought it from boots and it was on offer at the time for £10.
The bee is very brightly coloured which is probably what attracted my son to it when he was only about 5 months old. The wings are filled with the crinkle mixture. The bee has a rattle on these antennae. His hands have a squeaker in one and a rattle in the other. His feet have a mirror hidden behind a peek a boo signed flap with Velcro. His other foot has a butterfly which also has crinkle wings and a pocket for her to live in. He has a little bee on her tummy which when pulled out retracts while making a buzzing sound. She has embroidered flowers on her bum.
My son saw this in boots and it made him smile so I gave it him to play with and he wouldn't let it go. He has loved this toy but only at 20 months old has figured out how to pull the baby bee. It is quite large and so is quite attractive to little ones. He loved looking himself in the mirror and watching the bee be pulled out. My son would crawl towards her. Now he drags her around his bedroom. I thought he was probably too old for it but couldn't bear to throw it out as he loved it when he was younger and then has started playing with it again
I would recommend this prodict for all babies
