“ Brand: Lamaze / Type: Musical toy / Age: Newborn „
**WHAT IS IT**
This is a soft toy from the Lamaze range which is suitable from birth to 24 months.
It is bigger than some of other soft toys from the Lamaze range so it would be hard for a very young baby to hold however from about 4 or 5 months your child should be able to play with this toy.
**WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE**
It is the cutest elephant ever in my opinion. It has big ears that are crinkly and have different materials on each side.
One side of the ears are brightly coloured and are satin feel. Then the back of the ears are fluffy and are black and white contrast (this is good for newborn babies).
There is a crinkly nose that isn't that big for an elephant but it's a nice size for small hands. He has two big cute eyes with rosy cheeks and a smiley mouth which is underneath the nose.
The elephant has four big legs with satin bottoms (that are different bright colours) on them which has frilly edges around it.
The elephant is pink all over with a swirl of purple, white and green belly. He also has a purple tail that is knotted.
On his head there is a hook which means its handy to attach it to your cot, pram or play mat.
The last thing that you will notice straight away about this toy is that it has a lovely vanilla smell from it.
**WHAT IT DOES**
The fun thing about this elephant is that when you press in one of his legs it makes a squeaking noise. Each leg plays a different note so you can make up a tune.
You can play row, row, row your boat or fraira jacka and also Mary had a little lamb.
You can make up different tunes as well yourself. A music book is included which gives you three ideas on what to play.
My daughter is still quite young so she is just learning how to press the legs and she gets all excited and pleased with herself. When she is older I will learn her how to play certain tunes.
The toy is also nice just as a cuddly toy for your child. As a newborn my daughter just loved to gaze as it and the bright colours.
This toy costs £12.99 on Amazon and I feel that it is good value for money.
The toy is very cute to look at and it is very well made. This toy doesn't get destroyed easily and wears very well.
I like this toy as it can be attached to the pram and you know that the toy won't be lost when you go out and your child decides to throw it out of the pram.
The toy learns children about music which is fun. My daughter loves pressing the leg to hear a noise she is all pleased with herself.
She will be able to learn tunes when she is older. The music book shows you what colour of leg to squeeze so its easy for anyone to read.
