Mamas and Papas Walter Whale
Advantages: Well made, high quality activity toy
We purchased Walter the Whale from the Mamas & Papas flagship store in Southampton before my daughter was born. I think he was around the £10 mark. Sadly they don't make him anymore but he was a firm favourite toy wise with my daughter.
My daughter used this toy alot and at one point she didn't go anywhere without it. She used to find it really amusing and always had loads of fun with him.
Walter the Whale was a pretty cute whale. Even I thought so! He was brightly coloured and covered with different fabrics, textures and things to make sounds with. If I remember rightly, he was fair size and measured around 8 inches. He was definately the perfect size for my daughter to hold on to and cuddle with. She used to hang on to him so tightly nothing would ever make her let go of him! He was also very lightweight so it was easy for her to hold without causing any strain.
Walter was made partly of a soft royal blue fabric though each section of the blue fabric was different to the next. The colour used on him really made him look more whale like. His face was made up of a cord type of material which was ridged like cord jeans and then his fins were made of that crinkly type of material which made a crinkly noise when touched - my daughter loved his fins! The sound to me is reminscent of a crisp packet! On his belly was a shiny almost reflective material and finally there was the tail which had one half of it was yellow made up of small squares, all of which were raised so that your baby would be able to run their fingers over them and feel the shapes. The other half of the tail was green in colour with a squeaker inside. My daughter loved this bit too and would continuously squeak it - sometimes I thought I had a puppy in the pram rather than a child! Also attached to the tail area was a teething ring as this toy doubles up as a teether but my daughter never used it. She used the teether part as a handle instead!
On the whale's head was a big yellow stitiched hat which turned and made a clicky noise and also had a squeaker in it.
All in all, this was a well made quality toy. The item was very detailed and highly appealing to babies. He was also stitched very well and he never ever came apart. I am sure Walter the Whale is still about in one of my daughter's toy boxes as I couldn't bear to part with him for sentimental sake.
If you do manage to track down a Walter the Whale grab him as he will become a firm favourite.
