Laura reviews the Discover ’n Grow™ Musical Monkey
The Fisher-Price Discover ‘n Grow Musical Monkey, around £15, is a plush toy you can attach to your buggy. Press the monkey‘s cheek and it plays a tune and it also has a textured teether and beads. We asked Laura Mason, 34, from Kent, to review it with her son Reuben, four months.
'The large friendly faced monkey toy has teething rings and shapes attached to each arm and the tail. The monkey‘s cheek, when pressed, plays monkey sounds or short bursts of music, and the curly tail is designed to wrap around a buggy safety bar, so it‘s within easy reach.
Reuben has enjoyed grabbing, pulling and chewing on this toy and he seems to prefer it over his other rattle or teether toys at the moment. He can‘t trigger the music alone just yet, but his three-year-old brother is continually pressing the button to see his happy reaction.
I'm sure it won't be long before he learns how to press it himself. Because of the electric parts, it isn't machine washable, but it can be surface-washed thankfully, as it does get dribbled on a lot! It's lightweight and fits easily into my bag for play dates.'
