Why not have an off switch???, 31 Aug 2007

Bought Iggle Piggle today for my little guy (20 months) and he has't let go of it since. It's the perfect size and shape for a toddler to hold and cuddle and he loves the sounds and music. It's instantly recognisable - even to the very young - as the character from night garden and I was very happy with my purchase. I was going to buy other characters in time - but then it came to bedtime and I realised there is no off switch for the (quite loud) iggle piggle (at least not that I can find). This is a huge oversight in a toy for toddlers. Most musical toys for babies and toddlers have a switch to lower and turn off the sound, firstly because toddlers can play the tunes incessantly and secondly not to disturb sleepy/sleeping toddlers who are clinging to their new best friend.Are parents supposed to unscrew the back and remove the batteries to stop the tune playing at every squeeze? Very disappointing. Will probably not add to collection if others toys are similarly manufactured.
