Advantages: Holds baby's interest
Lamaze are a distinctive brand, distinguished by the brightly coloured fabrics used to make their toys, and the high quality of their developmental toys. We have a number of toys from the Lamaze range and Sir Prancealot is a firm favourite.
What is it?
A cuddly toy (in the form of a horse, with a knight sitting on top of him). that can clip on to a buggy or cot. There are two teething rings attached, one with a ridged surface, one with a bumpy surface. A range of fabrics is used, with designs on the saddle evocative of those used in medieval times. The hooves crunch and the knight squeaks.
What interest does Sir Prancealot provide?
We received this toy as a gift at Christmas when baby was 7months, (4 months corrected). He was an instant hit due to his brightness and the feel and sound of his hooves going scrunch. The teething rings can be knocked together to make a clicking sound and this is reminiscent of the noise that horses hooves make, so as time has gone on we have become more elaborate with our play and now make Sir P whinny, harrrrumph and clip-clop away.
The different textures hold great appeal; there are silky fabrics for the horses attire and hooves, fuzzy fabrics for his muzzle, and legs, these latter being knotted to provide knobbly knees. There are numerous tags around the horse and forming his mane. These have been good for developing the finer motor skills as they are twiddled by baby's tiny fingers.
The teething rings speak for themselves- they have been used for chomping down on when baby has felt the need to chew.
Yes- this retails for about £10, and there is such variety of texture that baby happily plays with him for ages. He regularly accompanies us out as he can be clipped safely to the buggy. The seams are tight, the stitching neat and precise as well as secure; he feels like a quality toy.
Yes- and the colours have remained bright, and no bobbling has appeared anywhere.
None that I can think of. I would definitely buy this toy for other children.
Update: Five months on we are still playing with Sir Prancealot, definitely a worthwhile toy.
Summary: A great product with lots of interest.
