Product Description

Product Description

With this toy baby will be making music from an early age! Music is guaranteed to stimulate baby's imagination. With each tentacle having a different note you will be able to play the following line from a favourite nursery rhyme. Twinkle, twinkle little star, How I wonder what you are. Contains a soothing vanilla scent to help calm baby. Review

Lamaze Octotunes is a spectacular Octopus and one of a wonderful collection of soft, lovable toys that have been designed in conjunction with Lamaze International (an award-winning American childbirth and early parenting organisation) and Yale University Child Development Experts. They are designed to stimulate imagination and discovery by exploiting the senses and imagination as the child develops and grows.

Eyecatching, soft and cuddly, Lamaze Octotunes belongs to Stage One of the range-–a toy to "Awaken the Senses"--and it is aimed at babies from birth onwards. This is a time when vision, hearing and touch develop rapidly and the Octopus helps develop these senses. It is sturdy and at the same time beautifully soft and squashy. It is brightly coloured and contrasting, with various patterns. Each of its legs plays a note and put together these notes form a musical octave, which means tunes such as "Mary Had a Little Lamb", or "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" can be picked out. (Obviously babies will require help!)

This really is an excellent first toy that will enable your child to grow and discover through play. --Susan Naylor

The toy can be surface washed, but should not be immersed in water.

Having been bought Octotunes as a present for my daughter, (then aged six months) we found the bright colours attractive, but my daughter wasn't able to do much more than look at it, as it is quite heavy for a toy aimed at this age group. It does however, have a pleasing vanilla scent to it. Now aged nearly eighteen months old, we have more fun, as she is just about strong enough to squeeze the different coloured legs to make a variety of musical notes. Octotunes' main body has a very soft feel to it though, almost like a teddy bear and has stood the test of time so far. The colours are still just as bright, the scent just as fresh and the musical notes - just as musical.
Maybe this toy should be aimed at a twelve months and over age group, as they are more developed in strength and ability.

This looks lovely on the windowsill in our playroom but sadly isn't used. The legs are just a bit hard for little ones to grip and squeeze to produce the notes. My children are 3 and 1 and can't really play with it even yet.

Grat toy for the 2+ set. 11 Oct. 2003
By Just Another Opinion - Published on
I, too, purchased this cool toy when my son was a little baby thinking that he would be able to hit the octopus and make music. Nope. The colors captured his attention, and the octopus was fine for chewing on, but I was the only person in the house making music with this toy.
But then, my son got older and more dexterous, and he figured out what he had to do to make his own music. Now that he's two, he loves this toy. The colors are still great, and it still has its yummy vanilla scent, and he can finally play with it as it was designed to be played with.
SO, I think this is a great toy, but not for 6 month olds.

Refreshing non-electronic interactive toy 1 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on
I am more than a little tired of all the toys my son gets as gifts - they seem to flash lights incessantly and play Brahms symphony over and over again. This toy is a winner for both my son and me
1. This toy is really cute - it looks sweet My son seems to love anything with large eyes
2. You have to squeeze the bellows to get any sound - no symphony ad nauseum, no batteries and No lights!
3. The eight tentacles play eight notes do re mi --- This gives my son a chance to create his own tune and me to hum it back to him. We love that part!
4. Surface washable toy made of fabric so that when my son sucks on this toy like he does on everything he can grab I don't worry so much about what chemicals are entering his system.
I have always loved lamaze toys and this one lives up to their usual standards.

Good for many stages of development 22 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on
We registered and received this toy prior to our baby's arrival. We did not know whether he would like it or not, but knew from friends that their children liked this toy.
While our son is only 2months old, he is wildly attracted to this creature! He cannot "play" with it, but LOVES to stare at it. The colors and designs really "pop" for him. He fixes his eyes on it and loves to look at it for a good 5 minutes.
The legs make a nice sound, nothing to alarming to an infant. The ends are soft, and he likes them rubbed gently on his cheek. The scent that comes from the Octunes is vanilla...he likes the makes him smile.
As he gets older, I think he will find this toy entertaining in different ways...whether its teething, cause and effect development or learning to play a tune!

Not much of a baby toy 16 Nov. 2002
By F. Pechacek - Published on
This toy is marketed as a baby toy but babies can't play with it. It is too heavy and the legs are even too big for their mouth. Granted, you can play songs for your baby and every once and a while your child might fall on one of the legs and trigger a note, but the legs are too big for small hands to squeeze and make "music". Also smells like French vanilla. We'll see when she gets older if she plays with it.

Great "friend" 8 Nov. 2002
By M. Jones - Published on
My 1.5 mo infant loves this toy. He's not old enough to squeeze the "arms" but he likes to listen to us play little songs for him. He also loves Octotune's face, and will stare and "talk" to it in his crib. He seems interested in the patterns and colors of the arms as well, and I think he'll keep enjoying it as he grows older and can make sounds with it himself.
