- Why I Bought -
If you have read my review on Fisher Price Peek-a-Blocks you will know I am a big fan of these toys and I am adding to my son's collection by purchasing them in charity shops. I recently bought the Poppity Pop Elephant which came with four Peek-a-Blocks for a bargain £3.50 (originally it would have come with five blocks).
- The Elephant -
The bright blue elephant has a circus style design with a colourful head dress and four yellow wheels. It is bright, colourful and definitely appeals to children. There is a yellow string at the front of the elephant so that it can be pulled along. My son can't walk yet so he is unable to do this but he loves watching me pull the elephant along and also likes pushing it along himself while he crawls. The elephant gets her Poppity name from the clever mechanism on her back. If you place a block there, when the elephant is pulled along the block will be flipped over and over. My son is mesmerised whenever the block flips over. There is also a hole at the top of the elephant's head where blocks and be put in so they slide down the elephant's trunk. There is a little gate at the bottom of the trunk which when up will catch the blocks, doubling as a storage space for a few Peek-a-Blocks. My baby loves putting the blocks down the trunk. The toy has quite a few different features to keep baby entertained.
- The Songs -
The elephant will also play circus themed songs. A song and an elephant trumpeting will play when blocks are put down the trunk. Another song will play when the elephant is pulled along. The songs tie in well with the circus theme and aren't nearly as irritating as many children's toys can be! The toy can be switched off or put on quiet or loud mode. Quiet mode is ideal as it is loud enough for baby to enjoy but not so loud it drives you crazy. The elephant requires 3 AA batteries in order to play these songs. However, the toy functions fine without the batteries and music so could be used without.
- Age Recommendation -
This toy is recommended from 12 months. However, my son is 10 months and really enjoys playing with this. There seems to be no reason why it might not be appropriate for children under 12 months other than that they may not be able to pull the elephant along themselves. I imagine this toy will entertain my little boy until he is at least two.
- Durability -
It is a very solid and durable toy, as you would expect from a brand like Fisher Price, so once my son no longer plays with it I will put it away and keep it for any future children we may have.
- Price and Availability -
I can't find a price for this toy new as it is a few years old now. However, I know this range is quite pricy so I doubt they cost less than £20 new. I can see they are selling second hand for around £5-£10 on Ebay and Amazon, so I definitely picked up a bargain for £3.50. I think it is good value for money if you spend up to £10 and it comes with a few blocks too.
- Would I Recommend? -
In summary, I think this is a fun and colourful toy with lots of features to entertain your baby. It plays a couple of nice circus tunes if batteries are inserted but this isn't necessary to enjoy the toy. It is probably a bit pricy new but at a second hand price it is definitely worth having, especially if you have Peek-a-Blocks already.
Summary: A fun toy to accompany Peek-a-Blocks, worth it at second hand prices
