Advantages: encourages musical play
My brother brought my daughter this for her first christmas (she would have been around 8 weeks old) Already a huge fan of lamaze toys, I was really impressed with Octotunes, with his bright colours, textures and his musical tentacles which each play a different note. Octotunes is vanilla scented and smells lovely. Octotunes has a handle so he can be carried, however I'm guessing initially this is more the the parents benefit as although not particularly heavy would be difficult for a baby to move.
Octotunes is extremely well made and durable.
This toy is aimed at babies from birth 2 years, but I can see it lasting far longer than this. My daughter can't squeeze the tentacles to make the sounds as yet but she loves it when we do this for her. Its a very interactive toy, and both myself and my partner love playing with it with her. My daughter also loves playing with all the different textures. Octotunes has a smiley happy face and comes complete colour-coded instructions attached detailing how to use the toy to play nursery rhymes.
I think this toy grows this the child, smaller babies can play with the textures and enjoy the bright colours, as baby grows they will enjoy playing with their parents to make sounds and as they are older still will love creating tunes themselves.
Highly recommend this toy. It can be brought on Amazon for £15-£20 and in my opinion is worth every penny.
