Advantages Animals are nice, Freddy really, really likes it
Disadvantages Songs soon become very irritating, doesn't move very well
Ahh Grandma’s don’t they just have the best of both worlds, being able to give the baby back at the end of the day and being able to indulge the little ones with noisy toys and then not sticking around to have their brains turned to mush. Freddy’s Grandma (well she prefers to be called Nana) is no different, she bought Freddy enough noisy, electronic toys for Christmas to completely liquefy Mummy and Daddy’s brains and this has to be his favourite.
Both the engine and carriage sections are very brightly coloured though, with bright reds, blues, yellows and greens. The engine runs on four wheel, which are not free-wheeling and features a light-up button on it’s funnel. There are also a pair of rails on the engine each of which features a pair of beads that can be spun. The carriage is about twice the length of the engine and features two compartments. The larger compartment also features a bird on a spring, while the smaller has a bar for an animal to swing on. As well as the actual train there are a total of three animals that can be played with either with the train or on their own.Although these animals are a little cartoon-like they are instantly recognisable (as long as your child has seen pictures of them before). There is a giraffe, who is fully poseable with all his limbs and his neck making a very satisfying clicking sound as they are moved. The giraffe also has a lot of different textures for baby to discover, with raised bumps on his neck and legs and then a different texture on each of his feet. I will say though that at 25cm tall he is again possibly a little too large for younger babies, which is a shame as they would have loved the way he rattles.
The next animal is a blue elephant, this animal is a much better size for younger babies and again he is fully poseable with clicking sounds and different textures to explore. The final animal is a small monkey, who swings from the bar in the last compartment. The monkey is much smaller than the other animals and far less interesting (to me at least), his limbs cannot be moved and he doesn’t click, but he does rattle and his tail is a nice texture to chew on.
