I purchased the rather cute Nico pull along Dog by Selecta a couple of months ago for my little boy. It was purchased from Amazon from the comfort of my sofa as are most things nowadays and it cost £9.98. I have however browsed Amazon for this product once again after finding that some products have gone up in price, only to find that Nico is now priced at £11.75.
I am a big fan of wooden toys for young children. Simple, non-electronic toys go further in encouraging imaginative and creative play which is highly beneficial for young minds. Wooden toys are also very sturdy and often more durable than their plastic counterparts. When I stumbled across Nico therefore, I was instantly appealed.
Nico by Selecta is a small wooden dog with a pull along rope. He is very reminiscent of toys 'back in the day' and is rather attractive in appearance. Nico fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and is surprisingly lightweight at just 499 grams.
His body is very basic and flat and decorated on either side with blue polka dots. His head is more formed and is pivoted on his body so that it wobbles freely, quite like a nodding dog. I like this particular feature as it means when the toy is picked up, the head wobbles and turns as though Nico is looking around.
Nico has a bright red wooden nose and red wooden wheels. He has soft felt ears and a felt collar with a bell attached. His tail is made from brightly coloured wooden beads and although glued firmly into place, they do worry me a little as my son likes to bite his toys. The manufacturers age guideline is 10 months plus but I would personally advise very close supervision with the tail.
Despite being made from wood, Nico is very soft and smooth to touch and has no sharp edges.
My little boy adores Nico, he is a trusty little canine companion that he will play with time and time again. I highly recommend this toy, however as aforementioned, do take great care to keep an eye on small parts!
