“ Brand: Fisher Price „
I bought this for my third son whilst I was still pregnant with him. I bought it from a Hyper Value store in Cardiff for a bargain £3.99!
It comes in a large box which clearly shows the hedgehog through the plastic front and has a nice cloth handle at the top.
The hedgehog is a decent size and my son adored it, as does his new little brother now! The colours are so vivid and bright that my little ones seem to be mesmerised by it. As they get older they enjoy playing with the 'spikes', these are made from a felt type material and as you can see from the picture they are in an assortment of bright rainbow colours.
The nose has a squeaker inside which my little one loved to chew at to make it squeak, he used to find it highly amusing!
The feet are crinkley and crunch when squished and if that isn't enough he also has a little jingle bell inside him.
All the different features help encourage little ones to play and interact.
He is suitable from birth upwards!
As expected the hedgehog does get a little grubby with baby dribbling all over it and our little hedgehog has been in the washing machine on a 30 degree wash numerous times and he is still as bright in colour as the day I bought it.
I'm glad that my 8 week old son also likes it as it is an adorable soft toy!
When my daughter was born one of my friends very kindly gave her this lovely fisher price hedgehog.
She was given a more soft toys than we know what to do with but this one particularly grabbed her attention.
It came in a beautiful box that had clear plastic on the front and a little cloth handle.
When we took it out we loved the fact that it had beans in the bottom which gives it a little bit of weight but also has a nice feel to it especially as the bottom of the hedgeho is made from a satin material. The 'spikes' are made from felt in a rainbow of colours. The feet jingle and have crinkly material inside them. Ther eyes are plain black which is really effective against the yellow of the face and the nose is quite big with a squeeker inside it. The bobble on the end of ours was regularly chewed.
I do find that the felt spikes get quite dirty and the only way to clean it is to put it in the washing maching. Ours has been regularly washed and is still really bright.
I think this is a great gift, its bright, eyecatching and is the perfect size for children from around 4 months, when they can really start to grab at the spikes and feel the different textures.
The Fisher-Price Hedgehog is full of bright colors and textures to stimulate baby's play and exploration. The hedgehog is covered with tactile multicolored "fur" to grab baby's attention while the squeaker nose, crinkle feet, and jingle all encourage baby's movement and interaction with the Hedgehog.
