There’s usually no shortage of soft toys in the house when you’re a parent – and for good reason. Babies, toddlers and young children love to cuddle and play with them, making them arguably the most popular toy your child will ever have.
But quality can vary, so it makes sense to choose a brand which has established itself for toys that are manufactured to the highest standards. You want to be sure your child’s new friend is safe and able to withstand a little rough handling, as well as attractive and lovable!
Flappy the Elephant from Baby GUND ticks all the boxes. Made from the best plush materials, he’s soft and huggable, and has two play modes – press his left foot to play peek-a-boo, or his right foot for a sing-along song.
Baby GUND is renowned for toys that inspire the imagination as well – Flappy the Elephant will be cherished for years to come.
Loved by babies – and parents
“I love it as much as my baby does! purposely searched for the GUND brand. Didn’t want to risk getting a fake or it not turning up,” said one mum. “It came with official tags and batteries so could be used straight out of the box. My baby girl loves it and it makes me laugh too.”
It may seem expensive, says another, but the quality is worth it: “If I didn’t have a slight obsession with elephants I probably wouldn’t have got it due to the cost, but I’m glad I did. It’s too cute – it doesn’t look nearly as lovely in the pictures as it does in real life, and wow is it soft! I was super surprised at the quality. I got it for my six-month-old but my four-year-old says it’s the cutest thing he’s ever seen and has kind of stolen it from his baby brother! It’s certainly popular in our house. I’d truly recommend it to anyone, the cost is great for the wonderful toy you receive. Don’t hesitate – just buy it.”
It makes a perfect gift, too: “This is a beautifully made, fabulous toy. It’s got great movement and the song is catchy without the usual twangy or squeaky voice. I bought it for my three-month-old grandson – I thought he might be too young but it always gets a reaction. It doesn’t just do peek-a-boo either – when the song plays, its ears waggle. It had the whole family laughing! Now, when the baby starts crying his three-year-old brother runs to get it – highly recommended.”
