“ Brand:Tesco Carousel / Age: 1 Year+ / Type: Push, Pull & Roll „
I bought this for my son as an exchange, for one of his Christmas he had received a toy that we already had so I had to swop if for something else.
Fortunately I really like the Tesco Carousel range of toys and I seem to be gradually working my way through the whole range, it's the price and quality that does it for me and they also do range of wooden toys.
The toy comes with minimal packaging a box with ties to hold it into place; it doesn't have any clear plastic covering over the box so you can actually feel the toy before you buy it. I bought it in a Tesco store. There's nothing to put together with this toy just take out the box and that's it.
Pull along Dog
I bought the brown and white Pull Along Dog but there was also a Pull Along Duck available I did umm and arrr for a bit Dog-Duck , Dog-Duck but the dog won over and I thought I might be able to teach my son the word dog more easily than duck...not sure why?, maybe because when we look out of the living room window we're more likely to see a brown and white dog on a lead than a bright yellow duck??
What it does
The dog has an orange cord attached under its head, when you pull the toy it rolls along smoothly on most surfaces (carpet and wood flooring), and its head moves from side to side.
My sons opinion
He's mildly amused by it, when I first gave it to him he lifted it up into the air and walked around with it, after I demonstrated how to pull it along with the wheels on the floor he can now basically drag it along on its side, he hasn't quite mastered to pull it along on the wheels. It's not one of his favourites but I'm sure he'll grow into it and be able to use it for some kind of role play
The age range for this toy is suggested from 2 years which is probably about right, I always tend to buy toys for my son older than his age.
It's a nice little toy, well made and sturdy. As a wooden toy I am careful when my son plays with anything like this as he is only 16 months and can quite easily pick this toy up and throw it at someone or something which could cause damage or be a bit painful
