Thanks to the lovely Helen at Aspen PR, Chrissy and Edward have been sent a Tolo Safari Friends Lion to test out.
Well, Chrissy was most impressed with the lion, animals being one of her new favourite things to learn about. She immediately pinched it and took complete ownership over her younger brother.
Chrissy literally played with this making growling sounds for an hour, and then promptly refused to go to bed without it. High praise indeed!
When Edward finally got a turn today, he immediately stuck it in his mouth for a good chew. The lion took it well and emerged unscathed. After sucking on it for a good ten minutes, he then held it for another ten minutes, making the head turn, which he found highly amusing. The lion is chunky enough for little one year old hands to hold with no trouble at all, and the moveable bits are not so tight as to be a problem either.
All in all, this is something I would definitely buy as a set with the other safari range, as its good value for money. There's not many toys that can cross over with both of my toddlers and not bore one or the other. Chrissy has decided he's her new favourite (over longterm position holder Upsy Daisy no less), and with the smiley face on the lion I can see why.
Well done Tolo, ten out of ten.
