Worlds Apart Toy Story Alien Go Glow Pal
Advantages: Cute and very well made!
Disadvantages: Very expensive if you can't get a bargain.
I'm a big kid and love the Toy Story alien....he's just too cute! It was a bit of a running joke with my boyfriend and I that he needed to get me a cuddly toy of one after I spent hours trying to win one out of a claw machine on holiday to no avail. Anyway, lo and behold, after months of searching for one, we ran across this little chap by chance when we were in Home Bargains. We got him for a mere £6.99 which is a real bargain considering I found him on Amazon going for £33!
He is quite big for a teddy but not massive. He's about 30cm, I'd reckon and is quite chunky and heavy so isn't really very toddler friendly or 'cuddly' due to that, I'd say. He is soft but has a little package of electronics in his back that you can feel depending where you squeeze him.
The body is made of soft, cotton-like material and has the Pizza Planet logo embroidered on his chest which is nice as some of the other alien teds that are available have the logo printed on his chest but not sewn on. The embroidery just gives the whole teddy a more luxury and well-finished feel. His feet and dark blue belt are made of a different material which is more velvety and his skin is made of a nylon type of material which is quite nice as this makes him feel more like he's got real skin as the contrast between the skin material and body material is so different. The details on his face are great too. Again, not just printed but sewn in with a two-tone mouth and solid eyes. He's a very well made and good quality little chap.
He has a velcro panel on the back so you can access his electronics, presumably to replace the batteries if need be. Obviously, he is meant to be a night light and so you find that if you squeeze his hand you'll feel a little button and this is what turns his light on. The light is in the eyes, so his three eyes light up. In a dark room the colour that the light produces is a slightly eerie green because the light filters through his green skin a little. The light can be turned off by squeezing his hand again or will automatically go off itself after about 15 seconds. This might make him seem useless as a night light but as he's a teddy, a child could easily take him to bed and re-press the button whenever the light went off. Then, of course, when the child finally falls asleep, the light will go off automatically and won't be burning power all night.The button would be very easy to find and operate, even for a very young child.
I think he's really cute and the light off him is enough to light a room. I sometimes turn him on to light the room until I've turned the light off at the light switch and walked to the other side of the room to get into bed and he always gives me enough light for me to walk to bed without stubbing my toes! I would recommend him if you manage to get a bargain but I think the £33 current price on Amazon is far too steep and you'd be better just buying an ordinary night light for that price!
Summary: A cuddly toy night light.
