Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

What better way is there to introduce a child to learning? Baby Tad is an adorable, soft and cuddly frog who talks and sings and teaches shapes, colours and songs at the same time. He comes brightly coloured with flashing lights, friendly smiley face and a high, chirpy voice and sings six well-known and well-loved songs, including "Hickory Dickory Dock", "If You're Happy and You Know it Clap Your Hands", "Itsy Bitsy Spider", "Oh Where, Oh Where has my Little Dog Gone?", "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Baa Baa Black Sheep".

Turn him on and he'll say "Hi I'm Baby Tad, Lets Sing" and begin his enthusiastic play. In "Daytime" play mode, babies can press the smiley shapes on his bib has six buttons for a response. Babies are encouraged to press the button which is lit, and are rewarded with enthusiastic greetings and songs. Baby Tad also says cute phrases that babies will love at random times, such as "Peekaboo, I see you" and "Lets Snuggle". Press, or kiss the pink lip button on his cheek and Baby Tad kisses back, saying "mmmwahh, I love you!"

Possibly the most useful feature on the new and improved Baby Tad is the brand new "Night-time" phrase, a brilliant idea for babies who like familiar songs to go to sleep to. This mode is calming rather than interactive. Baby Tad can be programmed play up to six minutes of soothing classical music and lights, simply by pressing his hand, once, twice, and so on, up to six times for six minutes. He will announce "one minute to night night, two minutes to night night" etc: and the music then plays for the allotted time and stops without ceremony, a comforting series of tunes which will help lull little ones to sleep.

While using the toy, children can develop perceptual and reasoning skills; motor skills are also enhanced as children physically push a flashing shape, song and "kiss" buttons. Playing with Baby Tad also provides opportunities for exploration, creativity and social development, all necessary ingredients for children's learning. The toy is accompanied by an excellent parents' guide and instruction manual which is straightforward and easy to follow, has a handy volume control on the battery box and comes complete with three AA batteries.

This toy is recommended by the manufacturer for toddlers aged nine months and over. --Susan Naylor

    Baby Tad was a pressie my son got at his christening and one of the best toys he has. It has 2 settings so he goes to sleep while listening to 6 mins of calming music, great for helping set a routine!. When he wakes he will play with the toy himself and it has a number if day time songs and lights that keep him amused. He loves it and I will hear him laughing away with it. If you can live with the frog's very american accent this is a great buy.

    This is a fantastic toy - my 7-month-old son has fallen in love with it on sight. He is not quite sophisticated enough to press the buttons but his older brother (4) also loves the toy and enjoys helping him. They have fantastic fun playing with it together.
    The sound quality is way beyond my expectations - both the day and night songs sound very good; not at all tinny.
    The daytime songs are a good mixture of traditional favourites and the interactive features (basically just some buttons that light up) are simple but effective. The night-time songs are well chosen and really rather soothing - very useful at the end of a long and tiring day.
    Highly recommended.

    At the price, I hesitated before buying this toy. Now I am glad that my wife convinced me. When I pick our daughter up in the morning, she will quite literally try to jump out of my arms at Baby Tad. If she hears the music, she is all smiles. The buttons are still a bit hard for her, but it is not too much of a problem as she regularly presses something as she hugs it.

    I love Baby Tad. My mum thinks he is the most irritating toy in the world, so he lives in my cot. When I wake up in the morning me and Baby Tad play together for at least 1/2 hour before I start getting everyone else up, and if I wake up in the night I just press his night-time paw and he sooths me back to sleep....most of the time....

    Baby Tad came as a gift and was placed near my newborn baby daughter's nappy-changing station. I thought she was too little to enjoy Tad but I would occasionally set off the tunes so she could listen to the different sounds.
    By three months she started to smile at Tad every time we laid her down to change her. Now Tad's cheery voice provides a happy cue for nappy-changing times and the classical music cues massage and bath times, getting my daughter in the mood for each.
    The high-pitched American voice can grate a little - and the traditional Incey Wincey spider is sung as 'Itsy Bitsy' - but these are minor gripes about a toy which has provided much amusement in our household and will continue to do so for months to come.

    What can I say about Baby Tad? Just a gorgeous toy that made both my girls smile. Hard for them to press the buttons when they were small, but thats what mummys for.

    A favourite with both of them. My older daughter is two and a half and still loves him.

    This product is very good but is also very annoying. The volume switch on the inside back of the item should also come with a physical on/off switch as the buttons on the front are activated by the slightest breeze and when trying to turn off the device it turns ito a battle. The device we have, can not be left with the child in bed as it will not shut up. If it had an off switch then I can't see why this product will be a five star product.

    I have to admit, when this lurid green frog first arrived, I wasn't willing to give him house space, largely because he sings in a very annoying voice, with an American accent. However, he is still here, because my 11 month old daughter loves him, and I must admit that I can now recognise some of his finer qualities. She beams at him as he sings away, and the little lights that flash from the shapes on his bib seem mesmerising. In night time mode (once you get past the annoying "1 minute to night night" in that irritating voice) Baby Tad actually plays some really soothing bed-time tunes.
    Be prepared for your children to like this toy more than you do!
