Umm, not as good as I thought...
on 20 July 2009
This had great reviews so i just had to have it for my 3 month old daughter, which I bought at the same time as Lamaze's My Friend Emily.
I have to say that I was pretty disappointed, the colours are good, but it doesn't really do anything - there is one squeaky bit on one of the wings that is pretty hard to get to squeak, certainly not even a 6 month old can do it. The other wings are quite rigid too, not much "sensory" input, nothing to really grab onto, plus for a small baby it is actually quite heavy. The mirror is tiny and difficult to get her to look into it (my daughter is now 6 months and I don't think she's ever noticed herself in it!), and yes, she grabs for it occasionally, but it comes a definite second best to Emily.
