Format: HardcoverVine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
This package comprises of two "buggy books" presented in an attractive clear fronted box making it an ideal small gift. The set comprises books on colours and numbers - the books are designed to clip onto the babby buggy, high chair or cot using a velcro tab which is threaded through the books. The suggested age range is "0+" and the intention is that they build an association between things the baby sees, and, in this case, colours and numbers. The books are nicely illustrated and contain the following sorts of illustrations/associations - a bee with the caption "1 Bee" and, in the case of the colours book,a picture of an apple and the caption "Red Apple" this theme continues for flowers and fish etc. The finish of the books is wipe clean.

In terms of usefulness I'm not sure about the "0+" recommendation, but as the baby develops, I think these books will be both a nice plaything and hopefully develop the associations between the objects and numbers/colours etc. In summary, good value, well presented and shows plenty of promise of being of practical/educational use. I'll update this review in the light of experience.

These two beautifully illustrated little books are practical, colourful and educational.

Each page of the 'colours' book features a coloured object with an appropriate description in words (for example, 'red apple' or 'yellow duck'). As a learning aid, this works in two ways: (a) babies learn to recognise the names that describe colours; (2) they learn the simple nouns that the colours modify.

The 'numbers' book uses the same learning technique to introduce babies to basic numerals. The full-colour illustrations are accompanied by descriptions such as '1 bee' and '2 flowers'.

Each book has a soft velcro strap which can be used for securing it to baby buggy, high chair or cot - a very practical addition to an adorable set of early learning books.

AS it is for very young children, this book is necessarily short on text and is only a few pages long. However, I was surprised as just HOW short it is. It only covers the colours red, orange, yellow, green and blue - I would have expected purple, black and white to make an appearance! The real disappointment was the texture elements, which are very lackluster. The "silky" green isn't especially silky, the fluffy yellow isn't particularly fluffy, etc. For such a simple book it feels like a greater effort could have been invested in making it engaging. That said, it is very chunky and durable, and should stand up to a fair amount of abuse from little hands. Overall, it is fine for what it is, but there are much better examples of this very standard formula out there.

It might not be a very in-depth review-y thing to say, but these are really cute! They're a nicely packaged pair of dinky books with wipe-clean pages printed on thick fumbly-finger-friendly board. The soft velcro-fastened strap keeps them within reach on buggies but the velcro might not be strong enough to keep them there for really determined little readers. Note the straps on my set are not bright red as in the picture, they're now pastel coloured and better match the illustrations in the books. I did wonder if the illustrations should be slightly more realistic (polka-dot and stripy grapes?) but they're sweet-looking and will still help the youngest children get to grips with their colours and numbers. A really nice stocking-filler gift.

The way these 2 little books are presented would make them a nice little baby gift. They come together in a box and both books have fabric straps (one blue, one lilac) which can attach them to a buggy, car seat or anything else along those lines. As others have mentioned the velcro is not that strong and the straps can be quite easily removed so I will be using them either in the house or on the car seat in the car so that if they become detached at least they will not be dropped in the road and lost, as may happen if you use the buggy.
The straps are washable so perhaps that is why they are removeable, and the fabric of them is very soft.

One of the books is on the theme of colours and the other is numbers but both include a variety of words to build vocabulary and keep the babies interest - such as "9 butterflies" instead of just putting the number 9.
The illustrations are all cute and babyish in pastel colours, and I found them quite appealing. They are interesting for young babies to look at and also educational for them as they develop into a toddler.

I gave the books to my 8 month old who enjoyed them and was able to hold them and explore them, although he also likes to chew them! but my 2 toddlers were also quite interested. I would say the age recommendation of 0+ is right as they will grow with the baby from very young

The Little Learners Corp have embraced the baby book market faster than Graspy McExited the famous jumper of bandwagons. Their ranges contain books that are foamy, bathy and in more than one case, touch and feely. 'Colours' comes under their pure touch and feel range, that should not be mistaken with their 'That's Not My' homage range. This is a simple book that tells a simple story, so simple in fact that there is no story. Instead we get a series of stereotypical items and the colours they embody e.g. A sunflower in yellow.

The added feature is the texture elements to 'Colours'. Unlike their other touch and feel range, this book actually has an impressive range of different textures to entertain a child. There is nothing new here; a glossy texture here, a ridge concoction there, but they are varied enough that a child would actually want to turn the page and see what's next. This is the basic aim of the book and it achieves it's goal. Perhaps the lack of any narrative will bore a child a little faster, but the educational benefits of feel and learning colours does offset this.

Its a fairly robust book, should be strong enough to cope with being thrown about by little babies. It has lots of bright colours and shapes in, it does however require more stimulating textures for the child. I found the baby got bored of it fairly quickly after a couple of looks. I have seen better types of books at a similar price which have fluffy, sandy, velvet type textures.

This gift pack of two little board books looks cute and will make a nice gift for a baby or new parents. The picture of the set seems to show that the books have red straps, but the item that we received had a soft blue strap for the "Colours" book, and a purple one for the "Numbers" book, (which I think actually look better than the red ones shown). The books are 9cm square and have 10 pages formed from shiny, wipe clean board. The pictures on the front cover are cute, but a little subdued...however the pictures inside are actually slightly more bold and held attention well.

These little books are great for when you're out on the go with the little one and need to occupy them for a few minutes. The "Numbers" books shows 1 object, (a bee), through to 10 objects, (fingers in this case), and our little test subject really enjoyed sitting and counting the items together. The "Colours" book also covers all the common colours and, again, was thoroughly enjoyed.

A quality product - recommended!

I really love these little books and so does Sam! She did not pay much attention to them at first, but once discovered she will not go anywhere with out the whole set, so beware! Lovely colours, lovely pictures, who would blame her, I know they look expensive but are such high quality they are worth every penny.

This is a lovely little touch-and-feel book of colours.

The pictures are nice and simple, with recognisable objects, and a child's eyes are drawn towards the textured panels in a way that encourages them to try them out. It's bold and attention-grabbing, in a good way. With the possible exception of the silky green leaves, the textures are all big and interesting.

It's very durable, and withstands a lot of pummelling from a baby, which is more than I've been able to say about a couple of other Little Learners books. This one is very solid.

Other reviewers have said there are better examples of touch-and-feel books out there, I'd have to disagree- I think this is one of the best hands-on books our little daughter has enjoyed so far.
