Disadvantages: Not really entertaining, mechanisms are bulky and hard
My eldest daughter bought herself this toy at Home Bargains earlier in the year and it cost her £6.99, I have checked on the internet for the purpose of this review and found that they actually sell at £14.98 so all I can say is don't bother.
In the shop this looked like it would be a cute little toy, it was sat in a green cardboard box on the shelf and the front of the box was open so that you could have a little play with it before you purchased the toy.
Inside the box which was easy to open there was a little bottle white in colour with a yellow top which was cable tied into the box and then the3 actual toy also cable tied into the box although they weren't too difficult to get out. In the range there are a couple of different bit cats available, Sophie picked the lion cub but you can also get a leopard, a tiger and a white tiger.
The Lion cub looks pretty cute, it is a fawn to brown colour like you would expect but it is actually a Lioness as it has no mane so there are no long hairy bits on the toy just the fur which is pretty short and soft. The face of the Lioness looks pretty cute and then it has lovely big paws with the pads of the feet marked on.
The Lioness makes a few different noises of contentment which Sophie liked and likened to her Grandmas Cat which was of course when I had to explain that a Lioness is actually a Cat just a very big one. You can use the bottle to feed the Lioness and she makes sucking and swallowing type noises and then if you don't do anything with the toy for a while it will go to sleep and start to gently snore.
Sophie was impressed with the toy for the first couple of days and then she got bored, the toy is soft but of course has working mechanisms inside so it isn't a toy your child can cuddle. The toy is supposed to be for ages 3 and up which I would presume is due to the fact the fur may shed a little, the toy takes 2 x AA batteries and they came in the toy which is good as I hate buying toys and then having to hunt for batteries.
I wouldn't recommend this toy and neither would Sophie, it got put away in her toy box after a couple of days and never surfaced again so that shows how much entertainment the toy provides.
