Tolo Safari Boy

Safari Adventures with

We got sent a safari boy to review from the safari adventures range over at TOLO .

I was going to let my Godson and his brother review it but seeing as they've come down with Chicken pox I doubt I will get chance to see them anytime soon!

I introduced it to the boy this morning, as soon as I took it out of the box his face lit up, he actually took a interest in something I was holding other then a mobile or the laptop.

The first thing he managed to do was to make it squeak.. There's a little button which is big enough for Oli size hands which he easily pushed. This made him giggle, he likes noisy toys ( much to my displeasure!) He then discovered the move able arms,legs and hat - He went a bit wild twisting and turning. I also think that was down to the clicking noise it made.

He played it with his other toys.. which is a new thing for him, he's starting to interact toys.

And then of course like any other teething kid his age , he stuck it in his mouth for a good nibble & dribble! I was perfectly happy for him to do this as it wouldn't destroy the toy in anyway and it looked perfectly safe for a 6month old to put in his mouth as there was nothing he could choke on.

The recommended age on the box is 1-5 years , but I would say it's ok from 6month's onwards!

This is one toy that definitely wouldn't be a waste to buy at this age, I can see Oli playing and continuing to dribble over this for much longer yet.
It's perfect if they are on that transition from those baby toys into the world of big toys!

I was not the only one who thought it suitable for a baby, Byrney over at 3 Kids and 6 and a half minis also tested it out with her youngest. Bryney's Review

    I think your review is great....honest and enough detail without going on too much. Glad Oli like it, Austin is a tiny bit too young to properly enjoy it yet but in a couple of months I think he'll love it like Oli.
