Have you seen this?
Is he not just the cutest little bug you have ever seen?
This little creature is the 1-2-3 Crawl-Along Snail from Fisher-Price and we have been lucky enough to have him visit our house over the past few weeks.
He was intended to come out when my 6 month old nephew came to visit, but as soon as I opened the parcel, Mousie (2) decided that she had to have a turn too. And I really couldn't blame here. This snail is COOL.
Flick the switch and his smiling face will light up and he lets out a weeeeeee before busting out the tunes. The downside to that is I have had 'If your happy and you know it' stuck in my head for the past two weeks. BUT, he is thoughtful and has a volume control, and even gives you the option of turning him right off!
This little snail is made for interaction, with one side of the shell being a mirror, and a little lady bird on the top that slides back and forth. Not to mention the gorgeous bright colours and lights.
We discovered one really neat trick to this little snail. And it is a trick that in my opinion, puts him to the top of the Christmas list for all my favourite little people, and little people yet to come.
Under his neck is another little slider, and this one allows you to lock and unlock the snail.
When he is locked, he is stays put, and rocks back and forth when touched, which is so much fun for little people enjoying tummy time or just learning to sit up.
If you unlock the snail, the child can send him scooting along and chase after him!
The recommended age range for the 1-2-3 Crawl-Along Snail is 3-36 months, and our household has proven that a 6 month old boy, and a 2 year old girl, can both have equal amounts of fun with it!
I just love toys that grow with the child! And this one is value for money.
The 1-2-3 Crawl-Along Snail from Fisher-Price can be found at Kmart, Target and other toy stores.
