“ Brand: VTech / Age: 3 months / Type: Finishing Touches „
This is a great toy for those babies who love to look at themselves in a mirror. This is because the main feature of it is just that with a little special extra. When the toy is switched on to both of the two settings a friendly voice says smile baby and a picture of the cow jumping over the moon magically appears. Great, baby’s attention is captured straight away. As with all VTech toys this one also has a setting for talking and one for music. There are 9 buttons to press on this toy and they are a triangle, circle, square, star, the sun, the moon and three musical note shaped keys. While on the music mode, if you press the shapes or the sun and moon a voice tells you what each object is and then plays a little tune. When the musical notes are pressed a different lullaby is played for each one. Each shape also has a picture on each of a cat, a bear, a sheep and a bunny rabbit. While on the talk setting each button has its own phrase and sound effect. If you press the triangle, for example, the voice says sweet dreams and the sound of a cat meowing is played. The other words spoken are sleep baby followed by a short tune, sleep sleep followed a sheep sound effect, baby baby again followed by a short tune, night night followed by an owl sound effect and smile baby followed by a laughing effect. When you press the musical notes a different note is played for each. This toy also has the trusty volume control switch at the back and two straps, which can be used to attach the toy to a baby’s cot. There are three nursery rhymes in all and 5 different sound effects. The buttons are intended to help a baby identify shapes and I have to say that it works. When playing with this toy I have been saying the name of a shape to Matthew and whether it is just co-incidence or not I don’t know but he generally presses the same shape that I have said. The toy is designed for babies ages 3 to 24 months old and takes 3 C batte
ries, which are included when you purchase it. Matthew really does love this toy, so yet again this is another wonderful toy from the Vtech range that I highly recommend to parents. We bought this from Mothercare for £9.99 but its normal price is £19.99.
