Lamaze Octotunes Baby Musical Toy Review

I was recently given the opportunity to review the Lamaze Octotunes Baby Musical Toy which is available from the online nursery shop Hello Baby. Hello Baby is a comprehensive site for all of your baby needs! Offering high quality products that are both fun and practical, Hello Baby provides one stop shopping for all of your personal and gift giving needs. Hello Baby sells a wide range of baby and nursery products, including baby toys, nursery furniture, baby travel and baby safety products.

My son loves music and so he is completely captivated by the Lamaze Octotunes Baby Musical Toy! Each of the “tentacles” plays a different note of the scale and the different colors, patterns and textures of this toy appeal to his sense of touch and sight. The toy has a vanilla scent that reminds my husband and me of the smell of Cadbury mini eggs (the candy shell) and it hasn’t faded at all in the weeks we have had the product. The head of the octopus has a handle and my son loves lifting it up. This toy encourages the use of multiple senses and also teaches baby cause and effect (they learn that pushing the tentacles creates sounds). The instructions included even tell you how to play some simple children’s songs with your Octotunes! The Octotunes Baby Musical Toy is also extremely soft and cuddly. I appreciate this feature especially since most musical toys are made of harder materials.

Hello Baby is based in the UK, but ships worldwide. They also have a blog and offer advice on which products to buy to meet your needs. They stock items from many top selling brands. One of the strongest features of their site is that each product features detailed descriptions, images and even videos to help buyers make an informed purchase. Shopping online can be tricky and providing this information really helps the consumer to know what they can expect from each product. Visit their site today to find the perfect item for the little ones in your life.

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
