Well, I was looking for a different product to review as it happens. But seeing this I just had to pen a little review about it as it used to be one of my grandson's favourite toys.
It currently costs £9.99 on Amazon which I think is a little bit on the expensive side. I'm sure we didn't pay that price when we bought ours a couple of years ago! It's the same price at Argos and Tesco, I just checked. Still, maybe one to look out for secondhand or buy with the old dooyoo vouchers then?
What our grandson really loved about this book was that it was something he was able to operate all on his own I think. Everytime he turned the chunky plastic page, there was a twinkly sound and then the arrows flashed and the book sang him a nursery rhyme. His favourite was the wheels on the bus but the problem with that one was that it didn't have quite the same tune as the standard version. So poor grandad was trying to sing along with it and could never quite get it right.
On each nursery rhyme page there's a full colour picture with a verse printed on it so an adult can sing along with one of the six nursery rhymes. I think it's good to include the text so that young children can get accustomed to what a book should look like anyway, even if they don't understand it.
Like I said, I think the current price is a bit much and one of the tunes has more notes in it than it does traditionally have, but this was one of the grandson's firm favourites for a long time. I don't think you can go wrong with this if you get it a slightly lower price for a kid aged about six months through to two years or so. Especially as the plastic design means it's pretty hard to wreck no matter how hard a little one might be on it.
