ELC Bop and Go Alien
Advantages: Fun, Durable.
Disadvantages: Only works on even, hard surfaces.
I bought this "Bop and Go" alien for my son's first birthday as he has developed a love of things which move.
His favourite thing is to watch mummy or daddy running around the garden and he loves seeing Mister Maker on Cbeebies as he races around his home.
So, I figured that this toy which will spin around the room would be a hit.
** Packaging and Price
It comes in an open fronted cardboard box with wire lengths to hold it in place. The packaging is not excessive and is easy enough to open.
It cost £12.50 at an Early Learning Centre store and is also available online at www.elc.co.uk. ELC also have some mothercare concessions although I'm not sure if this is a line they carry.
** The Toy
The alien is approx 6" high and 6" wide. He is made of a durable plastic with springy moveable arms. On the bottom he has 4 castors - 2 are straight and 2 move in a circular motion. When you press the alien's head he moves around on these castors, spinning around and off to the nearest wall/chair or whatever stops him.
** What I like about this toy.
It's good fun and as expected my baby loves watching it move around and bopping it on the head to make it go again.
It has sounds which are quite funny, but as with all toys are starting to get a bit irritating for me! His body also flashes which gives it more play value for baby.
** What I don't like about this toy.
It doesn't work on carpet or uneven surfaces. We have flagstones in our hall/kitchen and he gets stuck in the grooves, so we can only really use in rooms with wood flooring which is a bit limiting.
Summary: Great idea, shame it can't work on carpet/tile grooves.
