Disadvantages: Its not machine washable
When me and my husband were decorating Jayden's bedroom we decided on a Tiny Tatty Teddy theme, all of the accessorised that we purchased were Tiny Tatty Teddy related. When Jayden was born my parent bought him some presents including various Tiny Tatty Teddy toys and accessories for his room. One of the items that they purchased was a Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle, it was perfect for fitting in with the theme of his room.
Tiny Tatty Teddy is part of the Me to You range, it is basically a baby version of Tatty Teddy, they have the same basic appearance but Tiny Tatty Teddy has a much younger appearance to the original Tatty Teddy. The Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle came attached to a small card with a plastic tag, this card had the name of the product on it along with the Me To You logo, to be honest I cannot remember the exact details of the card it was attached to, but to remove it you do need a pair of scissors, I'm not sure if the product came in any other packaging as we received the rattle wrapped up.
The Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle is basically the head of Tiny Tatty Teddy on a round hand piece, the rattle is made from an extremely soft furry fabric. Tiny Tatty Teddy is a small grey bear, he has a grey patch on the top left hand side of his head, this is made from a felt type material and is stitched into the soft grey fury fabric, he has a small blue nose (as does the original Tatty Teddy) again this is made of a felt type material and his stitched onto a patch of shorter grey fury to create his mouth area, Tiny Tatty Teddy also has small eyebrows stitched in black onto the top of his head. The head of Tiny Tatty Teddy is attached to a round blue hand piece, this too is soft and covered in a pale blue fury fabric, stitched around this hand piece is the name Tiny Tatty Teddy with Tiny being in different colour threads and Tatty Teddy being in a grey coloured thread, there is a small hole in the centre of the hand piece which allows small hands to hold it.
The hand piece is quite thick so very young babies may have trouble holding it until they are a bit more co-ordinated. Attached to the back of the rattle is a small fabric tag which contains the Me to You logo, care instructions and warnings, this can be removed carefully with a pair of scissors before giving it to your baby. The actual rattle part is in Tiny Tatty Teddies head, this can be felt if you squeeze the rattle hard but is well padded and is unlikely to be felt by your baby, it is also well stitched in so cannot be removed.
As this is a toy for a young child/ baby it does need to be washable as it is likely to get dirty, you cannot put this item in the washing machine and it is recommended that it is surface washed only, so far we have not had any problems with keeping the Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle clean, as long as you keep on top of it and wash it as and when it is needed rather than leaving it for a while, it is easy to keep it clean and looking in excellent condition. Personally I would not risk putting it in the washing machine even on a gentle wash just in case it ruined the fabric of the rattle.
As I have mentioned there are warnings on the small label on the back of the rattle, this basically states that all labels should be removed before giving this to a child under the age of three as they may cause a choking hazard. Before giving this to Jayden I did ensure that all tags and labels had been removed, although the only real things to removed was the card and plastic tag that attached the two together and the small label that is on the back of the rattle, this is stitched into the seam of the back of the head so care does need to be taken when removing this to make sure you do not cut the fabric of the stitched of the rattle causing it to come apart.
I have only seem the Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle being sold online rather than in shops, although is may be available in some shops. Our Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle came from www.metoyouonline.com and cost £4.99 Some of the Tatty Teddy products you can buy are quite expensive, however personally I think they are well worth the money as they are of an excellent quality and so well made. The Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle is obviously a toy for Jayden to play with but when he is not playing with it it looks very cute in his Tiny Tatty Teddy themed bedroom and matches perfectly.
I would definitely recommend the Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle, it is of an excellent quality and is very well made, providing all tags and labels are removed this is suitable for young babies. The rattle was reasonably priced especially as it is of such good quality. Jayden loves his Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle and has had a lot of use out of it, the noise of the rattle is loud enough to grab his attention if you rattle it for him and he loves laying looking at the cute teddy face that makes up most of the rattle.
The Tiny Tatty Teddy on the rattle is definitely appealing to young children and babies, it is also ideal for both boys and girls, there is nothing to make it more suited to one and not the other. The chunky shape of the rattle makes it easy for small hands to hold although the hole in the middle of the hand piece may be a bit small and chunky for younger babies to put their hand through to hold, older more co-ordinated babies would be able to do this. Overall I have been very pleased with Jayden's Tiny Tatty Teddy Rattle and would recommend this to anyone as an excellent quality toy for your baby.
