Advantages: Colourful, soft, plenty of activities
Disadvantages: None for us
***Reason for purchase***
When I first became a mother nearly two years ago, I started going to the baby group my friend took me to, just to socialise with other mothers and maybe make new friends who lived locally to me. The place I went to was newly built and provided rather nice facilities including very nice selection of different toys for kids of different age. And this is where I first saw Sneeze the activity dragon. My daughter seemed quite interested in it, even though she was just a baby, she kept looking at it, all the bright colours and crinkles attracted her attention. To be quite honest, I was more excited about this toy than my daughter and all I was thinking about is that I really want to buy it for her. And thank goodness for the internet. Typing dragon activity toy into the search engine promptly provided me with the results I wanted. Couple of clicks away and Sneezy was mine!! Well Sofia's.
Sneezy the activity dragon or Dee Dee the dragon as we call it in our household lives now in my daughter's bedroom.
***So what is it?***
Dee Dee the dragon is bright, multi-coloured, soft toy with many activities and textures for baby to explore and keep them entertained. The dragon is about 30cm, quite chunky with its main colour being bright green. I like this green actually I think any other shade of green would really spoil the overall look of the dragon. This also means that dragon is suitable for boy or a girl. The toys activities include - from "head to toes":
Crinkly ears and wings
Squeaky right hand
Rattle left hand
Daisy flower that pops out in and out of the pocket on the right foot
Peek-a-boo mirror on the other foot
Little butterfly attached to the dragons chest
Bell inside dragon's tail
We had Dee Dee since my daughter (Sofia) was about 10 weeks old and she actively played with Dee Dee until she was around 7 months old. When she was around 5 months, Dee Dee was perfect size to sit next to her so she could easily reach each part of the dragon, she use to chew/such on its ears when she was teething and loved the crinkly sound. Other favourite parts of dragon used to be daisy flower, butterfly and mirror. She used to love looking at herself in the mirror and giggle which kept her amused. It was really funny to watch it too.
Having said all this, to be totally honest, Dee Dee was never Sofia's favourite toy even though I used to make sure she can reach him all the time. Maybe it was me who wanted her to have Dee Dee as her favourite toy as I really like it but it never happened. When Sofia started crawling at 6.5 months old she lost interest in it as she could move around and explore the rest of the house.
***From my point of view. . . . .
I do not regret this purchase!! Dee Dee made Sofia laugh out loud for the first time when she was roughly around 4 months old. I still have a video of Sofia in door bouncer, I just kept making silly noises with Dee Dee when she started laughing out loud and it was just brilliant. Dee Dee is an excellent toy, very well made and of an excellent quality. He is soft to touch and with loads of on offer, it will keep baby occupied for hours.
Yes, my daughter eventually moved on as kids do, but Dee Dee has a special place in my daughter's cotbed and this is not my choice to put it there, she want him there so that shows she still likes this toy even though she is not actively playing with it.
Sneezy the dragon by TOLO is available from Amazon, currently retails at around £35 mark but I am aware that it can be purchased from various shops although I haven't seen it in any shop other than on-line.
I would definitely recommend this toy to anyone and personally I think it's well worth buying or it would make perfect gift for a baby. Can't give any less than 5 stars.
Thank you for reading :)
Summary: Great soft toy
