“ Brand: Mothercare „
My dad loves football and is a Luton Town Football Club fan (I guess you could say thats not really football, but hey!!) so after three grandaughters he really wanted a grandson so was delighted when my son was born. It meant he was able to pass on all of his footballing skills and knowledge and his first gift to my son was this toy football from Mothercare.
The football is a perfect baby football as it is soft and made of a nice material. The ball looks just like a proper football as it is white with all the white pentagon stitching on it and then it has lots of black pentagons on it too so it does look very authentic. I like that it is authentic looking as its a nice introduction to what a football looks like for a little boy.
I also like the fact that the football is soft as it makes it easy for little hands to grip it and grab it and run around with it. This is much better than if it was a hard proper football as that would be harder to carry around and play with. The softness of the football also means it is easy for my little boy to kick around and also he is allowed to kick it in the kitchen with me as although it probably could do some damage its not as bad as if it was a real football.
The football is about half the size of a regular football so perfect size for little ones. What also makes this a great baby football is that it makes a noise when you play with it. There is obviously a bell inside that jingles every time the ball is picked up or kicked or rolled. This really does keep my little boy entertained and it really catches his attention when I roll it past him and he can hear the jingle. He chases after it and likes to giggle too. The football also makes a boing noise when you roll it too which I think is quite funny and a perfect noise for a football to make.
There is a little Mothercare label attached to this ball but that is easy to take off if you don't want it there. It says on the label that you can wash this football in a warm machine wash which is great because ours is always getting dirty with the amount of play it gets.
A great baby football that we are still playing with now, 18 months on!
