Lamaze Eddie the Elephant Tunes
Advantages: Lovley to look at
Disadvantages: Trunk is difficult to get a tune out of
Eddie the Elephant has been living with us for two years now and he unfortunately spends most of his time sitting on a shelf. He can be purchased for £15.99 on the Amazon website (May 2012). Eddie is suitable from birth and measures 10.5 X 8 X 11.5 cms.
Eddie looks great he is purple and made from soft plush material, he has a long colourful trunk that has 8 different brightly coloured shapes sewn onto it that when pressed play a musical note. His ears are made from a shiny material and are crinkly to the touch, they are also quite big so are used as handles for picking him up. He sits upright and on his feet he has a number of different features, one has a star on, two are stripy and crinkly and one has a musical note on it that when squeezed plays tunes. He comes with a song book that you can use to create pieces of music with and by playing his trunk and firstly pressing his bottom foot you can record and then play back a song or tune that you have created.
I gave this to my son when he was able to sit up, so around 4 months old, he would chew on it and squeeze it and generally just play with it, he was however, unable to get a tune out of the trunk and after a while he stopped playing with it so I put Eddie away for a while, when he was about 1 years old I reintroduced Eddie to my son thinking that he would now enjoy playing with him, he was able to get a note or two out of his trunk, but overall you have to be very precise when using the notes and your often get nothing out at all or you get the note above or below. We tried to use the song book that Eddie came with, but gave up in the end, as my son got bored. Again Eddie was put away and having brought him out once more my son, now 2 years old still finds the notes difficult to master, and as for following a song book, he as no clue.
Overall, Eddie is a lovely looking toy, he is interesting to play with when you are a little baby as he is brightly coloured, crinkly and plays an interesting tune now and again, however, I just think that the recording your own tune feature is too advanced for the age range that Eddie is aimed at, really is it up to the parent to master the song recording and then play it back to the child, so in conclusion, Eddie is now back sitting on the shelf and I would not recommend him to others.
Summary: Difficult to use for age range it is aimed at.
