We are so thrilled to be working with one of our favourite Toy Brands again in the lead up to Christmas. If you’re a regular around here, you might remember that a few months back, Hape sent us an adorable set of bath toys to test out and we loved them. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be showcasing some of the other fab toys they have on offer which might give you a little bit of inspiration when it comes to your Christmas shopping. Today I want to tell you about their Penguin Musical Wobbler *.
This little guy is possibly our new favourite here. He’s a fresh take on the traditional weeble. You can make him wibble and wobble and he won’t full down which is great for teaching your baby about cause and effect. Every time Florence taps him or pushes him, he wobbles but bounces back quickly ready to do it all again.
His wings click and clack and flip and flap and he makes a lovely and calming jingly sound when he moves and Florence loves to hear it! It makes the game all the more fun. In actual fact, I am certain that this penguin’s chime has magic powers. Six hours into our journey home from Cornwall, when Florence had just about had enough, and I’d exhausted pretty much every nursery rhyme I could think of, I wobbled him on my hand and she was immediately soothed and asleep within about five minutes.
He’s great for on the go as he’s the perfect size to just pop in the changing bag too and in case he gets grubby he can be easily wiped clean.
We sing, to the tune of Dingle Dangle Scarecrow.
I’m a Jingle Jangle Penguin
With my Flippy Flappy Wings
If you wobble me around
You’ll hear my belly sing!
We had my friend and her little boy, who is the same age as Florence, over last week and he loved it just as much as she does. I have a feeling his Mummy will be investing in one!
The Penguin Musical Wobbler* can also be enjoyed by older siblings as demonstrated by my friend Jennie in her very own review where she shares some other lovely penguin themed gift ideas for children.
At only £12.99 he is well worth the money and would make a lovely gift for your baby this year.
