Tidlo Musical Bear by Tidlo
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
I was looking for a xylophone for my daughter, so ordered this. This is not a xylophone. While the teddy bear "frame" is wooden, the keys are metal! The definition of a xylophone is a percussion instrument with wooden keys.

That said, the item itself is gorgeous. Really well made, beautiful finish. Seems solid at first inspection! As previous reviewers wrote, the tone is absolutely beautiful, and all the keys are in tune. I won't mind my little one playing with this.

Only time will tell how long it will last, but I've found Tidlo (John Crane) to be very durable in the past. I have nothing but praise for this toy manufacturer.
Tidlo Wooden Salad Basket by Tidlo
5.0 out of 5 stars Looking for quality?, 4 Dec 2012
I have now bought all of the tidlo fruit and vegetable crates. The pieces may be small, but they are well made and look and feel lovely. A year on, the first crate I bought is still going strong (unlike many of the other makes of wooden play food I've since bought; many of which turned up chipped before any child even looked at them!).

If you are after a quality and well made wooden food set, I can't recommend these crates enough. They may seem pricey at first, but I think they're real value for money compared to some of the other, less robust, options available.

I only wish John Crane made more of a variety of wooden play food. More fridge and cupboard foods please,… Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as photographed., 14 Nov 2012
The bed we received was very similar to that pictured, but was not in fact the one advertised.

As well as the paint job being rather washy and patchy, the build was quite flimsy. There were more spindles on the model we received, at about half the width as the bed photographed. The same goes for the slats - very thin/narrow, very flimsy looking. There were also no finials on the sides of the head and foot boards.

I ordered a replacement bed for this one which was the same price and a lot more sturdy. This being the case, I'm reluctant to chalk the poor quality of this item up to the fact it was cheap.

I am the first to admit that I am quite picky. I expected… Read more
