Fisher Price Turbo Tail Tigger
Advantages: lots of fun, keeps even little ones entertained
My son recieved the Turbo Tail Tigger as a gift for Christmas. It has not been put in his toy box once and continuosly goes back to it throughout the day, he absolutely loves it.
This toy is recommended from ages 18 months up to 4 years old.
Tigger stands at a little over 13 inches. He stands on his coiled tail which is coiled round three times. There is a short strip of orange ribbon attatched to the base of Tigger and joins onto the end of the tail, this i believe is what helps give Tigger his bounce as it only stretches so far then stops. He is orange in colour with black stripes all over him.
Before giving Tigger to your children to play with, there is a small tab to pull out at the back.
To start him off you need to gently squeeze his left paw. My almost 2 year old is able to do this himself, which is great as he can go off and play with it whenever he likes and does not have to depend on me to do it for him.
When Tigger gets going, he sings his well known song 'The wonderful thing about Tiggers'. He also uses a number of different phrases such as-
'Come on, bounce with me'
'Ready, steady, bounce'
'You are a tiggerific bouncer'
'Woohoohoohoo, my tail never fails' and
'Let's bounce again'.
As Tigger bounces around on his coiled tail, he moves slightly to the side at each bounce and his arm bounces up and down as he goes along.
It actually sounds like Tigger sounds on the tele, which was a nice surprise as i wasn't sure how true to Tigger it would sound.
My almost 2 year old son finds this lots of fun and it keeps him entertained for ages. Although he can't jump properly yet he constantly tries to jump and imitate Tigger by lifting up his one leg off the floor(this is his way of jumping).
It requires 4 AA batteries which are actually included when you buy the toy. There is an on/off switch at the back which is accessable through a velcro opening in the material. This is where you replace the batteries as well, the flap is screwed down on top of the batteries so there is no risk of your little ones gaining access to them.
The recommended retail price at the time of buying this toy was £24.99 but i paid only £14.99 as it was offer.
This is a toy that i would definately recommend for people with young children as it is lots of fun and is something that my son keeps going back to even though he has only had it a short time. We have definately had our moneys worth already and a lot more.
Summary: a cute bouncy interactive toy
