"There's a Turtle in the Bath"

Our Tomy Swim and Sing Turtle was a gift to our children when they were a little over eight months of age. The toy is aimed at children from the ages of approximately 12 months onwards but our twins played with their turtle pretty much as soon as they received it – operated of course, by mom and dad! The turtle is a good size for babies and children to hold onto and constructed of hardwearing and durable parts.

The toy came with its own demo batteries, which I have to say, lasted an impressively long time before we had to replace them. Both children were delighted with their toy and played with his not only at bathing times but also between times too. This toy is an accompaniment to Splashy the Penguin (which we don’t have incidentally, so I am unable to compare) but he’s a delightful toy, which I am sure all small children will love.

He’s easy to operate. He’s a wind up toy but operated by batteries (3 x LR44). He is bright and colourful and wears a cute little striped swimming costume, which we found rather amusing. I will confess to taking him in the tub with me on one or two occasions !

Once in operation, and placed on his back, he hums the tune of ‘Beautiful Blue Danube’ (perfectly in tune) while he swims along the length of the tub. When placed on his belly he gargles the tune and the children both loved it and we had to repeat again and again. There is a dial on his shell which when pressed down, his arms rotate and he swims and pressing his head makes him gargle.

He’s a fun toy and great for encouraging the children to take baths. He brings laughter to the night time wash time routine and gives the children something to look forward to. They have both kind of outgrown turtle now but every once in a while we get him out again.

Fun and safe bath time toy for young children and babies and now retails at approximately £8.

    Concise review that covers all points. Blue Danube is a wonderful piece of music and all children should learn to appreciate it - I first heard it in mono as the intro theme to the original Elite computer game, classic!. All the best, Mike.
