VTech Little Singing Alfie
Advantages: Small and portable, can fix it to pram or car seat
Disadvantages: Very small, not soft to cuddle
My mum bought my son this for Christmas, she thought it was really cute. I personally think there are cuter teddies out there that sing like this one, it isn't a cute cuddly bear. It is quite small, around 15cm's in height and the only parts of the bear that are teddy material are the head, hands and feet. These parts aren't soft and cuddly, they feel quite tough and solid. The middle part of the bear, it's body, is plastic.
My son is eight months old and holds this bear no problem. It isn't too heavy for him and he gets a good grip of it. He loves to chew and bite it, and it is great for him teething. On the top is a ribbon with velcro, so you can attach it to your pram or car seat so it can dangle in front of your baby to play with. This is a nice extra for this toy, instead of it being just a bear to play with at home, you can take it out and not risk it getting lost or dropped on the floor as you can secure it. The velcro and ribbon is strong and secure and so far my son has not been able to remove it from his car seat whenever I have attached it.
There is a heart shaped button on the plastic body, which turns the bear on and off. I am glad you can turn it off, as many of my sons toys you can't! If you accidentally knock them you have to listen to the whole song before it goes off! This teddy, talks, and sings. It says phrases like, I love you, I am a sleepy bear, I am a hungry bear, and sings little tunes which are very catchy and I find myself singing them in my head, they are so annoying but so catchy! When you don't press the bears buttons for a minute the bear automatically says bye bye and switches off.
There are three other buttons on the body, a number one with an apple on it, and when you press this it says the number, or 'I'm a hungry bear'. The number two has a happy bear on it, and says 'I'm a happy bear, and the number three has a zzzz sign on it, and say's I'm a sleepy bear, so all the sounds relate to the pictures as well as saying the numbers, helping your little ones to count.
The buttons light up and flash whilst it is playing the tunes. This bear feels really strong and sturdy, it isn't soft enough to cuddle. It does amuse my son this bear, but not as much as his other toys. It is a great idea, a singing and talking bear to take out with you on your car seat, but I don't think I'd purchase again for another baby.
This bear takes 2 AAA batteries, which you need a screw driver to put in. This was a present, but I have seen it in Asda for around £9, which I think is expensive for this bear. I wouldn't have paid this much myself, there are better bears out there for babies. However, it does keep my son amused for a little while, and is great to take out with us and you know it won't get lost!
Summary: Nice toy but it only amuses my baby for a short while
