Tomy Forget Me Not Photo Album
Advantages: bright, child friendly, unusual message recording function
Disadvantages: Maybe a bit heavy for young babies
I was delighted on Christmas morning when I opened one of my 6 month old son's presents to find the Forget Me Not Photo Album by Tomy. My family is spread throughout the country so I thought this was an ideal solution to stop my son forgetting them and perhaps being strange around them.
The Forget Me Not Photo Album is the shape of a bright friendly butterfly. The spine of the book is the body of the butterfly, the happy face of the butterfly is always visible. The pages are the wings of the butterfly and are a number of bright, eye catching colours. There is a crinkly tab on each page which makes it really easy for little hands to use! The album holds 8 photos, as well as having a mirrored cover for baby to see themselves (something I know my son loves). Each photo can have a message recorded to go with it. This is done very easily by pressing the button at the side and speaking after the beep. The message is then automatically played when the page is opened. As the photo album is made from hard plastic it can also be displayed opened, so doubles as a photo frame for your child when they aren't using it.
I really like this photo album, as does my son! The colours used are lovely and bright, very stimulating and eye catching so really grabs my son's interest. It is sturdy (essential for a rough and tumble toddler) as well as being wipe clean, essential for my mucky pup! It is very easy to assemble the album, both putting in the pictures and the message. The message is also very clear when repeated. My son finds it very easy to look through the album, the tabs are easy for him to grab and turn so he doesn't get frustrated and can play with it himself. I love that he can see and hear his favourite people whenever he likes.
The only slight down side is the weight of it. For a baby book it is quite heavy, but to have the recording ability I suppose it has to be the size and weight it is. Also, although it is useful to be able to record over and over again, I think it is a bit too easy to accidentally record over a message, especially with an older child. For example I worry about a message my late gran recorded on my son's album as it could never be replaced if lost.
All in all I think this is a wonderful baby toy, especially for those who have family and friends who don't live close by.
Summary: A fantastic way for young children to see and hear all their favourite people!
