Intital Thoughts: From the moment the Little Bird Told Me Curious Caterpillar Activity Pull-Along toy arrived we all fell head over heels in love with it. Not only is it exceptionally cute, it’s lovely and soft, makes a pleasing rattle and is really unusual. The packaging gives it quite a wholesome feel which made it seem really quite special.
We Liked: Fifi at 21 months really loved pulling the caterpillar in his apple house along, stopping to chat to it and take it out. She genuinely fell in love with it, as did I. We enjoyed taking it on adventures and making it talk to us with its rattle. Fifi’s cousin who is four months old came over and so we took the caterpillar (named Beanie) out from his house and gave it to her to rattle, she enjoyed looking towards the mirror on his house and trying to scrunch the leaves. This illustrated to me that although this is a baby toy aimed at the 6 month age group it can be used by both a baby and a nearly two year old. This is unlike most of the other toys in this age category.
We weren’t keen: It’s a bit tricky to remove the wooden wheels if you want to give it to a younger baby. Even Fifi noticed that the eyes were a different size, which made it give you a bit of a funny look. It would have been nice if the antennae were scrunchy.
Overall: Frankly, even I like this toy. I don’t think you can go wrong; it looks cute, it has loads of different options for imaginative and exploratory play, the quality is superb and the price is reasonable. Even better, it’s not from one of the run of the mill manufacturers, so you run less of a risk of getting two of them as gifts! I can’t recommend this one more, buy it when the baby is little and they will still be using it when they are toddling about. Munch, crunch fun, perfect for re-enacting scenes from the Hungry Caterpillar.
