A delightful handmade Limited Edition teddy bear. Quite small and expensive but very cute and soft for small hands, so would make an ideal Christmas or christening gift. Made in England. ...
Traditional baby monitors
GRANNYNET GOLD: BT Digital Baby Monitor 200
Attractive, easy to set up
No temperature indicator
This is an attractive product which is nicely packaged and would look good to give as present. This was the only monitor I tested which came with a matching travel bag, a nice touch. Parent and child units are white with purple. I like this, but some people would prefer a more neutral unit which blends in. Very easy to set up. There is a freephone helpline number immediately visible when opening the box, if help should be needed. I particularly liked the pull tab method of activating the batteries - no fiddling about! This monitor has a nightlight, talkback and mute features. There is no temperature indicator, so this is not the one for you if that is something you require from your monitor. We didn't feel this detracted from it however. The sound quality was good, all in all a good product.
Tomy Digital TD300
Becomes a nightlight after monitor is no longer required
Battery slightly fiddly to activate
As with all the monitors I tested, the sound quality and reliability was good. This monitor is a neutral white and grey colour which would blend in with any decor. The baby unit makes an attractive domed nightlight, which can be used after the monitor facility is no longer needed. It was easy to set up with clear instructions, but I found the battery fiddly to activate. The parent unit has a belt clip so it can be easily carried around.There is a talkback feature and temperature indicator to check the temperature of baby's room, which many parents would find reassuring.
Another reliable baby monitor with good sound quality. The packaging was functional, not an attractive one to give as a gift. The monitor is a light grey colour, which blends in well with any decor. The instructions were clear, but once again I found the battery fiddly to fit. The unit has a nightlight, temperature indicator, talkback facility and a useful belt clip to the parent unit. This monitor also has a lullaby feature with choice of 5 lullabies. We didn't find this particularly useful during the test period, it is a nice extra, however and may prove useful in the long term!
