Lamaze Freddie Firefly
Advantages: Multi purpose, looks great
When we were looking for stuff for our little baby we checked out Amazon and Dooyoo keen to find out what kind of toys were highly rated and why.
The Lamaze Freddie Firefly received over 205 votes on Amazon at 5 stars and is also as highly rated here, this was more than enough encouragement for us to add this to our growing connection of Lamaze toys, for the first few months it seemed like money wasted, but this was pure impatience on my part, now I think Freddie is awesome, he has been more than worth the money and is a valued family member, although he is probably the most put-upon member of our household, behind slapped, bitten and generally treated like a punchbag by our enthusiastic youngest householder!!
The Firefly cost us £6.99 on Amazon, it is currently £8.39 but the price goes up and down dependent against sales in other stores, this is great value for this multi-purpose toy/baby botherer and I would suggest even £8.39 is very good value.
Freddie is a colourful chap with multi-coloured wings, which are black and white stripes on the back for younger babies to see well and an explosion of colours on the inside, Freddie has a green face and his body is made up of different textured and different coloured bumps, they all look great and he really is a colourful chap who adds a spark of panache to babies room alongside some of the more normal looking toys. Overall the toy is about 20cm long with a clip on the top so it can be clipped to buggies or the baby gym and it has all manner of things including a small toy, some teething elements and some holes for baby to put their finger in on one of the wings as well as a squeezy piece which lets off a high pitched noise.
The thing is multi-textures so there is crispy material which crackles when touched to stimulate baby, there is soft carpet like material, harder plasticy feel, each wing and body part feels different to keep baby interested, it is a wonderful stimulant and a great idea.
Does it work:
Without a doubt after 3 months we noticed that the toy really started to appeal to our young un, we clipped it to the baby gym so baby could look at it but before too long Freddie was being pushed this way and that, baby was attempting to grab different parts of the toy and explore how they felt, nowadays we use him as something to get the little one going once a day, there is so much to feel and look at and each part stimulates baby differently. The toy is awesome and lives up to its reviews fully, I think it is the most played with toy in our house currently, it is a little bigger than I would have hoped but is an essential in ensuring the little one has something enjoyable and developmental to play with.
An excellent purchase, it looks fantastic, it is well designed, it is really multi-layered and baby can find about 20 different elements to enjoy within it, from visual stimulus to different elements of touch, it is a vital ingredient in our happy household and i'm joining the 5 star club to celebrate this flamboyant and happy little chap who brings a smile to our little one every single day.
