This has changed in recent years but my son had the one pictured above and I also got given it again by a family member for my new little one. So this review is one the one pictured above. However it is available to purchase from Amazon for £18.49, the newer model is very much the same just more rounded in the body and face.
What I really like about this apart from it being really sweet is that each of the 26 legs actually plays a different tune! Unlike cheaper toys where the song can be repeated every few buttons this one really does have 26 different tunes, it pleased me then and pleases me now!
The body of the caterpiller is purple in colour and made of a nice sturdy plastic, it's very glossy and feels like a quality toy. The face is nice and cheerful looking and on top of his head are two soft plastic clear yellow antenna's, these light up red when buttons are pressed.
It has a collar around it's neck and this has a teeny butterfly switch which when pushed across goes from ~
Off, ABC, A picture of a pair of lips, a crayon and a musical note.
Each mode does a different thing.
Off ~ speaks for itself!
ABC ~ Says the letters of the alphabet in A,B,C,D,E,F..... and so on.
Lips ~ Sounds out the phonics of the alphabet eg. A ahhh, B Buhhh, C caaa etc. (If you know what I mean)!
Crayon ~ Say's the colours of the caterpillers boots.
Music note ~ A different tune for every boot ~ Nursery rhymes and songs such as GreenSleeves!
A button on top activates 'Eddison' the male voice of alphabet pal rather than the female voice who says all the letters etc.
It's also a pull along toy and has a string attached to the front, he bob's up and down as the child pulls him along. The wheels underneath aren't round as a wheel usually is but oval shaped allowing the caterpiller to bob along.
My sons think this is such a great toy, infact my 4 year old has just come and taken it off me! The baby likes listens to the music and watching the antennas light up.
It takes 3 AA batteries.
Summary: A lovely learning alphabet pal.
