We were given a Whoozit as a present when my baby was first born. They had the smaller version for their 6 month old and bought us the large one. I've seen them for sale in Toysrus for about £15 . It's about 25 cm tall.
Whoozit is designed to hold babies' interest by stimulating the developing senses with vivid colours, shapes and appropriate developmental activities. Whoozit has eyes, a big nose and a smiley mouth. Under the nose is a little mirror. On the back it has black and white circles.
It's very bright, patterned and colourful object so it may overpower the very young child. It has dangling tentacles with rattles, squeakers, hidden noise makers and crinkly ears. This is great for shaking and making a noise. The Whoozit is made from textured fabrics that are easy to wipe down.
The Whoozit can attach to most car seats and pushchairs as it has a velcro strap. Some babies will love playing with the big soft Whoozit and you may find he will not want to go anywhere without it like my friends baby but my baby has it in his take it or leave it pile of toys. When he's moving he may like it to drag around but who knows.
Would I buy it? Probably not but it's ok as I was given it. The smaller one may be better or they do an activity spiral.
See if your baby takes to it in the shop or a friends house before splashing out.
This is a squishy silly baby toy. My three have all loved it.
The little arms all the way around each have a different soft coloured shape on. These are good for holding, stroking, looking at, and most commonly, chewing. The little velcro hanging strap is also good for chewing! I think one of the main appeals of this toy is that it is a soft toy with lots of bits to chew - most teething things are made of hard plastic. Babies seem to like to suck on or play with the labels on toys and this one has soft cloth bits all the way around so its easy to find one.
Then of course it has a big bright red squeaker, with the added surprise of a little mirror underneath.
The back is a black and white pattern so you can hang it up for the baby to look at when they are very small.
You can never tell what a baby will like, but this toy has been a hit three times here.
And it's machine-washable. It needs to be, after all that chewing.
This was one of the first toys we bought for my son once we thought he might like something other than the activity arch on his playmat!
It appealed to me as it was soft and squishy with a colourful face on one side and a black and white contrasting pattern on the other.
It has a number of 'arms' round the edge with a variety of shaped and textured 'hands', some also rattle. The nose on the face part has a squeaker in and a tiny mirror on the underside. The hands/arms can be squashed into small openings on the main body of the toy.
It has a loop that enables the toy to be fixed to the cot/pram/activity arch etc, although the piece of velcro is very small and one tap or tug from the baby results in it falling off. Which is a lovely reward for the baby's efforts but not great when it was supposed to be attached to the pram! I considered sewing a press stud on instead but never quite got that far and just kept it for indoors only
This toy was a firm favourite for many months, not just with my son but many of the other mums I know also have this toy and would agree it was a good purchase!
