"Talking Plush Upsy Daisy -cuddly, cute, but not machine washable"

Hasbro In The Night Garden Talking Plush Upsy Daisy


Price: around £10
Availability: Amazon and other online retailers
Suitable: from birth


This cuddly Upsy Daisy toy is a hit with In the Night Garden fans. It’s nice and soft, and features different noises and sounds from the television programme.

Appearance

This Upsy Daisy toy measures 23cm and is all made of fabric (no plastic pieces). She has a soft body, fleecy feet and a silky skirt. I think that the mix of textures makes it appealing to babies, even although they might not recognise the character.

Features

Upsy Daisy has a little mechanism inside her tummy, so when she’s gently pushed she makes sounds. These seem to vary between models, from what I can see online, and the more recent version has a wider variety than the doll we have. Our Upsy Daisy says:

“Oh, Upsy Daisy, Upsy Daisy!”
Sings “Upsy Daisy, Upsy Daisy” (as she does in the programme)
“Oh, Daisy Do”
“Hello Upsy Daisy” (man’s voice from the programme)
tinkle, tinkle noise

These noises come in a seemingly random older, rather than being pre-set, which I think makes it more interesting for children, as it’s less predictable. I would have liked if this toy had included a part of the main theme tune to “In the Night Garden”, and the “Upsy Daisy, Here I come” song, as the music was my daughter’s favourite part of the programme. Perhaps the most current versions of the toy included these songs as well.

Playing with it

My daughter really enjoys playing with this toy – sometimes Upsy Daisy is a baby, she comes to the swing park to go down the slide, or she has teddy bears picnics inside on rainy days. The doll is a good size to be played with alongside other dolls and teddies. The noises cannot be switched off, so although my daughter has wanted to take Upsy Daisy to bed to cuddle, I don’t let her, because I know as soon as she cuddles her tummy, she’ll make a noise which will wake my daughter up!

Wear and Tear

We’ve owned Upsy Daisy for close to two years, and she has been well loved! Her skirt is very faded now, and a little frayed around the edges, and there are lots of marks on her hair and face. Due to the sound mechanism inside, this toy can’t be washed in the machine, as I do with other teddies, so it gets a bit grubby. This is admittedly my own fault for allowing my daughter to take Upsy Daisy outside so often.

Value for Money

This is a great little toy for a tenner. Even although my daughter doesn’t like In the Night Garden that much any more, she still plays with Upsy Daisy in imaginative and role play games.

Overall

This little toy has been great for my daughter – it can be played with in lots of ways, and the noises entertained her when she was younger. I like that the newer versions of this toy have a wider variety of sounds and music, as not having the main theme tunes was the only thing which let it down.
