Initial thoughts: A Glow Worm! I’ve always wanted one of them. Growing up in the 1970’s- 1980’s every cool toddler on the block had a Glow Worm. Except me. It’s really fabulous that this toy has longevity and has come back, mainly so I can enjoy it with my little girl.
We Liked: A classic toy, we loved the look of the Glow Worm, it was 100% retro fabulous. The red light provided just the right amount of light. You don’t have to press too hard for the lullaby and light to work, which means that even the littlest people can do it. The fabric was a nice calm combination of green and pink is satisfyingly soft for a cuddle.
We weren’t so keen: Although lovely, the lullaby’s were a little bit loud. I kept getting woken up in the middle of the night as Fifi rolled on it! I should point out, that this was entirely my own fault as the Glow Worm has a switch which changes the modes, so you can stop it making a noise at night-time. I just kept forgetting to do so. It’s slightly annoying that the songs don’t last all that long, as it means that you have to either teach your baby to keep pressing, or do it yourself. We were surprised to find that it takes 3 AA batteries, that’s a lot of power!
Overall: This is a great toy, not only will it remind you of your childhood, but your child will love it. It kept Fifi, who is 9 months, amused for ages and it was a useful comforter for the cot. Well worth the money.
