Charming fabric book but could have been made to be so much more interactive
on 1 August 2014
This is a charming little fabric book that can either be used as a book by folding it or can be hung on baby's cot. I really like the thought that has gone into it by having one side as black and white for when your little one is first born and the other side with the usual Galt Toys bright colours that they use (we have a few Galt toys in our home). My one little niggle with it is that I think they could have made this much more interactive than it is and for that reason I am a little disappointed in it although my baby isn't and thoroughly enjoys squishing and chewing it!
I'm disappointed that they haven't put any rattle toys, jungle toys, tassle parts or mirror effects in it like you usually get with fabric books and the book is primarily a crinkle effect with just one squeaker in it. They have included some different textures on the coloured animals such as velvet nose on the Dog, fur surround on the Lion's mane and felt nose on the Horse but this for me is not up to the usual high standards of the Galt Toys we have. I do however like that it can be used as a book or as a cot hanging toy and so for that reason I have marked it as four stars as opposed to the three I would have given it from the lack of other effects had it just been a book. The fact that my baby loves it too has affected the marking. A nice little fabric book toy but not as good as some others we have had and not in my opinion the usual high standard of Galt toys.
