5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, even for very young babies 26 Jun 2003
By Marijke
I have 'read' books with my son books from when he was a couple of months old, but none light up his face and make him shriek with excitement as this one does. He is now 8 months and it has now become a bit of a party trick to show his reaction to visitors as we get the book out, and read through the pages with him. As he is now going through a very touchy-feely stage, he also loves all the different materials,especially the very fluffy ones. I think the combination of repetition and the bold, bright colours and pictures are the key to its success. I have now also bought the That's not my train one, which is also very nice, but 'That's not my teddy' is still number one, judging by my baby's reactions to it. It is really well worth buying, even for very young babies. It is one of the very few books that really appeal to them at a young age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fabulous 7 Feb 2000
By A Customer
This is my third child and I have never seen any of them so interested in a book at 10 months as my daughter is with this book. She loves the feely bits and sits at the side of me turning the pages and eagerly finds the touchy bits. She has so much fun with this book I am now going to buy the other touchy-feely book by Usborne.

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant success with the 1 year olds 4 Oct 2000
By A Customer
My 17 month old son has had this book since he was a year old. At the time it became his instant favorite. Even now when he is "older and wiser" he still loves it. A guaranteed success.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for babies 8 Jan 2005
I have been ready this book to my wee girl since she was 5 months. She is now 7 months and loves the touchy-feely parts of the book and giggles when the book appears.
The pictures and textures of this book definitely appeal to even a young baby. Highly reccommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not the best one 15 Jun 2014
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
My son (10 months) has 3 TNM books. He really enjoys all the books and reads them most days. I think he prefers TNM dragon and TNM snowman better than this TNM teddy. The colours in this book are more pastille than the bright colours in the other two. The contents are TNMT it's paws are too woolly (cream woolly fluffy material), TNMT it's nose is too soft (light brown felt), TNMT it's paws are too rough (black velcro), TNMT it's patch is too squashy (tartan spongy material), TNMT it's ears are too fuzzy (white long straggly fur), TMT his tummys so furry (brown short fur).

A lovely, textured book with bold, colourful illustrations from the well-known series. It's not too gender-specific or silly like some of the titles. A hit with babies of all ages.
