*Flappy was gifted to us for review.
Every now and again, we sent a product to review that I fall head over heels in love with. Flappy is one such product.
So What Do We Love About Him?
He is super soft, incredibly gorgeous and unbelievably cute.
Flappy not only sings to little ones, but also uses his ears to play peek-a-boo. The look on the Lion’s face was priceless when he first saw him. And I have to say mine was probably pretty close too!
This is a toy that’s beautifully designed. A product which will not only be loved by babies but that will be loved by their parents too.
Flappy looks gorgeous in the nursery and would make the perfect gift for newborns, christenings and first birthdays.
This is one toy that parents won’t be pleading with the battery life to end.
With two distinct modes Flappy is perfect for babies of different ages with different needs.
In sing mode Flappy is suitable for even the youngest of infants, his soothing lullaby relaxing them whilst his moving ears provide visual stimulation. This mode certainly isn’t limited to tiny babies though. The Lion, adores it and can’t resist hugging Flappy whenever he starts singing.
In play mode Flappy is ideally suited for babies who are ready for some to and fro interaction. Using his ears he plays peek-a-boo, and asks them where they have gone. The Lion loves to interact with Flappy in this mode, pointing at him when he ‘disappears’ behind his ears.
One thing that as a parent I particularly appreciate is how easy it is for toddlers to operate Flappy.
The Lion easily switches between modes pressing the buttons on Flappy’s feet easily to operate him
Is There Anything We Would Change?
The fact that he is so easy for toddlers to operate, means that he is often restarted by them during a sequence. On the one hand it would be lovely if Flappy finished one sequence before he could be restarted. That said however, doing so may well cause confusion for the Toddler pressing the button who is eagerly awaiting Flappy’s response to their direction.
Who Would We Recommend It To?
Anyone looking for a lovely gift for a baby or toddler, which delight both the child and their parents alike.
Flappy is a toy which has quickly become a firm favourite in our house, and I’m sure he will remain so for some time to come.
And it isn’t just us who love him. Flappy has just been awarded the ‘Editor’s Choice’ accolade in the Made for Mums Awards.
Please don’t just take my word for it though.
Why not take a look for yourself at just how special Flappy the Elephant is and just how much the Lion loves him.
