Little Ones Love This "Owl" ... 26 Feb 2014
By delicateflower152 - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
“ALEX Toys - Pretend & Play Musical Owl 14970” is the type toy that young children love – it is colorful and it makes noise! The edges of the plywood surface are slightly rounded; they are smooth and without any burring or roughness that might injure a little one’s delicate skin. The finish of “musical” owl is smooth and evenly applied. The colorful design is clear and vivid.

The “musical” features of the “ALEX Toys - Pretend & Play Musical Owl 14970” consist of a 5-note xylophone; a washboard surface; a cymbal; and a drum. While these instruments are good noisemakers, their value as musical instruments is not great. The lack of a full scale, 8-note xylophone limits this instrument’s musical value. The washboard provides more tactile interest for a little one than it does sound. The drum surface and cymbal create additional sound-producing opportunities.

The construction qualities of the musical owl’s base are not as evident elsewhere. The cymbal attaches using a very short – ¼” long screw – and might easily be bent or broken. The lollipop-shaped drumsticks are constructed of two separate pieces. If this toy is used frequently, it is conceivable that the drumsticks will break apart at the glue joint. Because of these potential issues, I do not let my little one play with this toy unless there is an adult present.

In spite of things I perceive as deficiencies in this toy, the “ALEX Toys - Pretend & Play Musical Owl 14970” gets a four-star rating because little ones love it.

Good for very young children only 16 April 2014
By G. Dawson - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This musical owl is a fun toy for very young children who are just learning to grasp and bang on things. The sticks are easy to hold for small hands, and there are four choices for making sounds: a xylophone, a washboard surface, a cymbal, and a drum. The wooden construction is durable and attractive, and I like that the sounds are not too loud. For example, the drum makes a quiet thudding sound and isn’t overly annoying to listen to over and over.

However, I would not recommend this toy for older toddlers who are actually starting to learn about “real” music. The xylophone has only 5 notes and can’t really play any songs. The washboard isn’t really much fun for older babies, and the cymbal and drum are also very limited. So, I would say this is perfect for the under 2 years crowd but not much good after that. Ironically, the instructions say that this toy shouldn't be used by anyone under 3 years, so be sure to supervise younger children so as to ensure their safety.

Nice toy for younger kids 23 April 2014
By SZAA - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Fun toy, but my 2 year old is too old for it. I think 12-18months would be the perfect age range. The noise isn't very loud, but the concept is really cute, so I think younger kids would enjoy it more than my energetic toddler. Seems to be well made and is bright and colorful.

I do think it's overpriced for what you get though. I would pay the current Amazon price ($22 at time of review), but not the retail ($35).

Quality is not there. 31 Dec 2013

Wooden pieces came unglued in less than a week of normal use by my 3 yr old daughter. The only reason I haven't returned it is because she does enjoy playing with it.
A Nice Self-Contained Musical Toy 27 Feb 2014
By ladyfingers - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I initially thought sound quality was the most important feature to look for in a musical toy. What a difference a colorful owl can make. Like Elmo, owls hold a strong fascination over our grandson. He likes making music with this toy, and I like that the owl's instruments are all self-contained. The only loose parts are the mallets. Even the simple act of placing them in the owl's wings is fun and promotes toddler concentration. The instrument sounds aren't high quality, but our grandson could care less about that. He's more interested in an owl that makes noise.

We've been pleased with Alex toys. Part of the appeal are bright colors and chunky animals, but they also help build dexterity and motor skills. Our grandson especially likes Alex stringing toys.
