Upsy Daisy - Dress up
**WHAT IT IS**
For those of you who don't already know Upsy Daisy is a character from the children's television show In the Night Garden. This show is shown on Cbeebies on the digital channel. At the moment it is on in the evening around the bedtime hour.
Upsy Daisy, Daisy Doo that's all I hear my daughter chime every time In the Night Garden comes on the television so I decided when I seen this toy in Tesco on offer I might as well buy it for her. It is a soft toy that can be brought to bed to snuggle up to (as long as all her accessories are taken off). Then in the morning you can dress Upsy Daisy up in her clothes. This toy is suitable for children aged 2 upwards.
**WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE & DOES**
Upsy Daisy looks exactly like what she does in the television program. She has a brown face with a pink head and multicoloured spaghetti look alike hair. She is wearing what looks like a sleep suit with strips and daisy's on it. These are orange, yellow and purple in colour. Upsy Daisy's face is very friendly and she is smiling.
The accessories that are included that you can dress Upsy Daisy in are two hair clips, a daisy bracelet, a daisy necklace, shoes, a skirt and a daisy handbag.
The Two hair clips are different colours one is pink and the other is orange. They both have pictures of daisies on them . They have a easy open clip on them so they can be opened and clipped onto Upsy Daisy's hair. These clips are rather large and are plastic. The one thing I have to say about them is that my daughter is constantly breaking them apart however they do click back into place if I need to do this.
The daisy bracelet is a single rather large daisy and it is also made out of sturdy plastic. There is no catches or anything the way that this is put on is that there is a small gap so you can fit it around Upsy Daisy's wrist.
She also has a necklace which you might have already guessed is made up out several daisies. Again this is made out of sturdy plastic and just like the bracelet there is a small gap at the back for you to put it on Upsy Daisy's neck. It means it can be put on or taken off very easily if you desire to.
The next accessory that she has is what most woman have and that is a handbag. What I like about this cute little handbag with a daisy on it is that you can open it. Inside if you wish you can add a photo. The only thing is that I am not sure how you would attach it safely for your toddler as it is made out of plastic. This handbag fits around Upsy Daisy's arm.
There is a removable skirt that has a plastic bending band around it so you can put it on and off easily. It looks sort of like a tutu. In the television programme Upsy Daisy's skirt is inflated when she dances. Sometimes my daughter pretends she is dancing when the skirt is on.
The last two accessories that Upsy Daisy has is her little pink shoes which are purple underneath with big pink daisy prints (not really a surprise there!) These can be slipped on and off her feet when you want to.
This toy cost me £10.00 on offer at Tesco but I have seen them around £25 in the shops. For £10 I think that this is reasonable value for this toy if your child is an In the Night Garden fan. My daughter seen it in the store and pestered me until I bought it for her but I do feel she has gotten good use out of it.
My daughter takes this toy to bed at night and takes of her accessories. I use it as a tool to help settle my daughter before going to bed as she is getting her baby ready to go to sleep. The toy is soft enough for my daughter to sleep and sometimes she will hug it.
The only bad point I can say about this toy is that I find the accessories are scattered all over the place and parts can be lost easily. I suppose though for a lot of toys this is the case. My daughter likes to dress the doll up and undress her too but I feel if I had gotten her an Upsy Daisy that has no accessories she would be just as happy.
I find that my daughter just chews on the accessories quite often. They are safe enough to do so but I feel that they really aren't being used for their purpose as much as they should be.
I was happy with the price I paid for this product however I definitely would not of paid any more for it as I don't think it is worth the money.
Summary: A toy for the In the Night Garden fans
