“ Brand: Vtech / Age: 9 months / Type: Children's Furniture „
My nan bought this for my daughter for Christmas it is currently for sale on Amazon for £69.99!! But it only cost my nan £22 from Tesco Direct.
My daughter is a huge Night Garden fan so I knew this toy would be a winner. The toy is suitable for 9 months and over. It requires 4 x AA batteries which are included. The table can be used without the legs to start with and then when your baby is confident at standing then you can use the legs.
The toy was a nightmare to get out of the box, it was surrounded but horrible plastic cable ties which took what seemed an age to cut off. My daughter is 10 months and although she can stand she is very unsteady so I left the legs off and just placed the table on the floor. The legs are made from a really solid plastic so when the legs are on the table it is very sturdy.
The table has several features, it has a Makka Pakka slide button which says 'Makka Pakka' when pushed and it sings the song from the programme. The is also an Iggle Piggle and Upsy Daisy button which also sing the song from the programme. There are 5 number keys on the table which are brightly coloured and also have pictures of each of the 'Ha hoos' There is also a book where the pages can be turned which has a picture on each page. In the middle of the table is a which the three balls that come in the set can spin around, the balls each have a picture of the Tombliboos on there un, ooh and eee. The balls can be dropped into the gazebo on the table and the table will count the balls 1,2 and 3 the balls then travel over the bridge which lights up and into the centre of the table. Above the table is are sliding beads in the shape of the Ninky Nonk.
The table features two modes of play, learning and music, the music mode. In learning mode the piano keys count from 1-5 it also says the 'Ha Hoos' and makes the noise of the characters. Each character button states the name of the character. When the table is in music mode the 5 buttons play music each button is a different note and the table sings the theme tune from the programme. There is a storage slot at the bottom of the table for the balls to be stored in when not in use.
My daughter loves this table, it features the same voices from the programme so it is realistic. There isn't a volume button though and it can be quite loud at times. My daughter can easily access all of the features on this table and she laughs and becomes really excited. I don't think that the table is particularly educational as all it does is teach the character names and numbers up to 5. It is fun though and features noises and flashing lights which are a winner with most babys.
This table is a lot of fun for a Night Garden fan and it isn't as repetative as some toys. This is a great toy from Vtech and hopefully my daughter will get a lot of use.
