Fisher Price I Love You Barney
Advantages: Cheap cuddly toy which many children love
Disadvantages: Annoying when your child presses the button too much
My 2 year old daughter received this as a Christmas present this year from Santa (her big cousin). He was a fan of Barney himself right up to the age of 7 so he thought that it would be nice to share a gift that he loves. He never told me where he bought this from but I found online on the ARGOS website for £9.99 or you can buy it and another (selected) item for 2 for £15. My daughter has never watched any Barney programme before but for some reason she knew the I love you song which he sings and took to the purple dinosaur right away.
As you are aware there are many Barney dinosaurs out there and compared to them this one I would say is rather small. The soft 10 inch Barney is perfect for cuddles, there are no hard bits inside for your child to hurt themselves so please don't worry. The recommended age for Barney is 18 months old but I personally don't see a problem with buying it for a younger child say maybe even a new born. The only issue that I can see is for smaller babies would not be able to press his tummy to activate the song which maybe frustrating for them. As for the safety point of you I do understand that occasionally bits and pieces can pop off but having a look at my daughters Barney I could see that the eyes are stitched into the actual fabric of the toy so there are no choking hazards and there are no bits that are hard or sharp that your young child can hurt themselves on.
The only bad thing that I have to say about Barney is that the song can be a little annoying if pressed a lot like my daughter does. Fair enough don't get me wrong I think it is great that she is enjoying her new toy and especially hearing her sing but the "I love you, you love me" song has well and truly got stuck in my head. I think at the age of nearly 23 walking down the street or doing the dishes really isn't very attractive for me to be singing this. Anyways I'm hoping that I soon grown out of it either that or grown up and stop singing songs that are meant for a child to be joining in on the sing a long song.
As I said I am not sure how much that my little cousin paid for this but I did find it on the ARGOS website for £9.99 which I think is fantastic. It is a reasonable price for excellent quality toy. My daughter loves it which is the most important thing and despite the button constantly being pressed I am in hope that the batteries soon run out lol.
Just a little bit more information about the product that you will probably already know is that that there are different ways that you can order the product. You can phone the store to either reserve and pick up or get them to deliver it but it is an 0845 number that will cost you a pretty penny or you can visit http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Home.htm which lets you reserve to pick up and tells you what store has got what items that you are wanting in stock or you can also use the website to get them do deliver which I feel is better as this save you money on a telephone call. But please note that there is a delivery charge of £5.80 so bare that in mind if you do wish you get it delivered.
If you bought this product and for what every reason you are not happy with it. I had enclosed the direct page below with all the relevant information that you will need take the product back. You can find this at:
A fellow reviewer informed me that lots of cash back sites pay out on Argos orders so you could get it even cheaper! So if you are a member of any of these sites then you will find this bit of information useful and for those that don't maybe think about joining one to save some pennies.
I would rate this product a 8 out of 10. The only reason for a lower mark next to 10 is that it is the only thing that Barney does. No phrases or other songs except the famous "I love you, you love me song".
I would like to take the time to tell you that I appreciate you reading my review and I hope it is of some use to you. Thanks again and if you do decide to buy yourself or someone else you know a Barney I hope you or they have as much fun with him as my daughter does.
