The Blossom Farm range of baby products from The Early Learning Centre is one of my favourite ranges for babies. What I really like about it is that is has some classic toys as well as colours that are calming and coordinated and not all pink and glittery like some baby toys can be. A lot of their toys are quite neutral and feature lots of muted beiges and light blues, maroons etc and look a lot nicer in a front room or a babies room than some bright toys you can get. We have a number of Blossom farm Rattles and squeakers and this little squeaker rattle is really cute in my opinion. What I like about this rattle is that it's white and beige and quite neutral so it's suitable for both a boy and a girl and was a present for my little boy when he was born although my daughter loves to play with it too. The rattle really does look like a lamb which I like although it is not shaped like a lamb. The rattle is long and thin and could be classified as more of a shaker. The rattle is soft and quite appealing for little hands as it is easy to hold and the squishiness I think makes it quite comfortable to hold too. My little boy can just wrap his little hand around the main part of this toy and then it's easy to give it a squeeze or a rattle. The lamb has a wooly body and it's made of that textured material and a sort of shaggy wool so it really does look like lambs wool and makes the toy look very cute. The lamb also has a little smiley face which I think makes it quite appealing. The lamb Is a rattle so when you shake it it makes a sort of low clacky rattle noise but when you squeak this toy is will also make a squeaky noise which is fun and really easy for my little boy to produce both the sounds from as you do not need to squeeze too hard for a noise to come out. The rattle is from The Early Learning centre and a really nice toy in my opinion.
Even though we do not have a early learning centre shop near us, we were fortunate enough to receive a few gifts for my daughter from here when she was born. One of these gifts was this Blossom Farm Woolly Sheep Squeaker Rattle, which can be purchased from the early learning centre within Mothercare for £5.00, which is a good price in my opinion. This little woolly lamb rattle is very very cute. In fact, when I first saw it I thought it was very unusual in shape and design. This rattle is from a range of farm animal squeaker rattles from within the Blossom Farm range at the ELC. This rattle is tall and slim in design, as can be seen from the picture above. As it is a lamb, it is covered in white wool to create that fur effect. The face is also very cute, with a happy smile and then two brown ears that stick out at the side. This is a squeaker rattle, as you can press the toy and it will squeak, but at the same time, it does act as a rattle, though not the high pitched common noise of a rattle, but a baby could shake it and it will squeak as well, especially when you shake it from side to side quickly. THis toy is suitable from birth, and although my daughter looked at it after a month or so, it wasn't until recently that she has really taken more enjoyment from this toy. She loves looking at the smily face and will smile back at the lamb when I put it in front of her. She is also trying at the moment to reach out and grab toys, and so the shape of this product, being tubular is perfect for her little hands to be able to get a grip of and hold. She has not quite mastered completely grabbing a toy as yet and so cannot squeak the toy herself or shake it, however she loves watching me do this, and it will only be a matter of time before she is able to hold this toy herself and make it squeak for herself and so I imagine there is quite a lot of fun to be had with this still! All in all, this is a really cute squeaker toy for a little baby, and is especially good when they are at the stage of trying to grab things and hold them themselves, due to the tubular shape of this toy. It really is very very cute and it is certainly a hit with my daughter!
