This Mothercare vintage musical toy one is all about the fabric and textures, the fact it plays a tune is just an added bonus.

vintage musical toyInitial thoughts: The different use of fabrics, colours and textures on the Vintage Musical Elephant Pull Toy really appealed to us, as well as the fact that it’s not too big and garish – always a positive. The soothing melody is pop goes the weasel, the first two lines. On repeat.

We liked: The whole look of the Vintage Musical Elephant Pull Toy is lovely. It’s from the ‘vintage range’ and although clearly not vintage it is rather ‘old school’ and simple. There are five different fabrics used, and a number of textures, so when our daughter is able to explore the toy more fully, this will engage her.

The clip used to attach it is very hard wearing and functional. Its simplicity means it will clip on to and grab pretty much everything we had from her crib to her car seat, her stroller to her travel system. She loved the little chick, and as it moved she would try to grab it with her mouth, which was very entertaining.

We weren’t keen on: The soothing melody is very repetitive. Just two lines of a tune on repeat is enough to drive you crazy even if the baby loves it. We would have loved it to have had at least four lines before it repeated!

Overall: We chose the Vintage Musical Elephant Pull Toy as it only had a minimal amount of plastic, and we chose well. It’s the first toy our daughter engaged with and actually tried to grab. The ‘soothing melody’ seems to soothe her, but doesn’t quite do the job for us parents.
