Martin Yaffe Dan Jam In The Night Garden Day And Night Rotating Clock
Advantages: nice pictures
Disadvantages: little interaction
This toy clock is a Dan Jam toy. It is based on In the Night Garden and although the children enjoy the programme and the characters they do not feel the same way about this toy.
The clock is wooden and is nice to see rather than plastic. It is a large circle clock which can be turned on a very big and bulky base. This takes up a lot of room when storing.
The clocks face has small circles which also rotate. This can be annoying if trying to read the clock as half of them are usually facing the wrong direction.
The numbers are a good size and in bright colours. Obviously they are 1 to 12 as a clock would be.
The centre of the clock has a nice picture of Upsy Daisy and Iggle Piggle. On the sides are different nicely coloured pictures that include the other characters like Makka Pakka.
The hands move around easily and can be used to teach reading a clock. They do stay where they are left unlike the numbers.
This toy clock is often left out but the children never show any interest whatsoever. They walk straight past it or it is in the way of other toys.
I would not recommend this toy because of the lack of interaction the children show. Even when adults encourage reading the time they are not interested.
Summary: a clock I wouldn't recommend
