Dr Miriam @ Galt soft toy range – Song Bird
Excellent interactive components
The tweet mechanism is difficult to locate and can only be squeezed by parent/grandparent
This interactive bird toy comes with a very useful play guide. The colours are not garish as in some toys, the toy is soft and the size is easily handled by baby. There are plenty of interactive components: my granddaughter loved being pecked on the nose by the beak and of course Granny had to be pecked as well! She was also able to squeeze the crackling wings and squeaky tail, which also have tag ribbons at the edges and are made of different textured fabrics. The bird has a tweeting mechanism in the tummy, which has to be squeezed by a parent/ grandparent but fascinated my granddaughter. We have hours of fun with the bird as it flies through the air, dances on the ground with its puppet-like legs and can also be used as a cuddle toy at nap time. According to the play guide the bird teaches conceptual thinking, memory, naming, manual dexterity, imagination and speech and I agree it does all of these. This is an excellent toy for conversation and play. Highly recommended.
