The Playgro Clip CLop is a babies toy and is designed so that it can be attatched to things like your childs carseat, cot or pushchair.
*** The Product ***
Starting from the top, the item has a bright green plastic clip which is used to attach the product to something, the clip is quite sturdy and will attach to almost anything, it has a hinge at the bottom of the clip so it can easily be removed.
At the bottom of the clip is an orange elasticised string made from material, this is then followed by the toys logo and then another elasticised orange string.
You then get to the products itself, the horse itself is mainly blue in colour and states it is made from "All new materials consisting of polyester fibres" The horses head is oversized compared to its body.
His body is also blue and has his name printed on the from "Clip Clop" His arms are attached to his body with a black and white striped material and two soft balls at the end of each arm which resemble his hands.
His legs are also attached with the same striped material as his arms, his feet are made from plastic the left foot is red and on the bottom is a yellow button, when this button is pressed the toy will squeak, this is manual and will only squeak when it is pressed. The right foot is made from clear plastic, it is a dome shaped and inside the plastic are 5 small coloured balls, then the base is red. When the horse is moved around these make a rattling noise.
Also, when he is moved, because his feet are made from plastic when they are banged together they will make a 'Clip Clop' sound which is where it gets its name from.
*** Thoughts ***
Ideal for young babies as he is very colourful and bright, when babies are young they are immediately drawn to colour and it kept my daughters attention during car journeys and when in her pushchair. As she got a little older, she liked the fact that it made a loud noise when she shook it.
Its very lightweight so easy to carry around, its also give her something to play with in the car to stop her from getting bored.
The bad points about this product is as she has gotten older, she has become less interested in this, as to be honest it doesn't really do much, she'll still bang it around from time to time but that's about it. You can't wash it either, you can only surface wash it so it's now looking a bit grubby because there is only so much you can clean with a flannel.
Finally the clip at the top is easy to press, but clips on quite hard and she happed to press this once and got her fingers caught in it, which form the sounds of her, was rather painful!!
*** Summary ***
Good little toy from babies, especially new babies 0-6 months I would say, any older and its becomes a little bit boring.
Just have to watch if your older babies are playing with it that they don't trap their fingers like mine did!
