Tumble Time Tigger first came out in 2007. The advertisement look amazing the best child's toy I seen in years. As it was coming up to Christmas I thought it would make a great present, unfortunately my children have only played with it about 5 times since 2007 says it all really.
Tumble Time Tigger is designed to sing and do cartwheels. To activate Tgger you press his nose or clap loudly. He will start to turn over and sing his tunes. Occasionally he lands on his head and stays there, but most of the time he landed on his side. He very rarely done a full cartwheel. I thought this was maybe due to the fact that i had carpet rather than a wooding floor so i tried it in the kitchen where there is limonite but still the same result. He will also carry on by voice activation. We have found that this doesn't necessarily mean calling his name as the box suggests, more general noise and when you have a small group of children shrieking at this funny tiger not doing as he is suppose to.
Tigger requires six AA batteries to make him work via his little on/off switch in his back. This works out to be expensive as if he is left on these won't last too long.
Due to Tigger being mechanical his body is hard, not really suitable for for young children t be cuddling. However his fur is soft and also washable if you take a damp cloth to the fabric.
Tumble Time Tigger is made by Fisher Price and is recommended for children aged 18 months and over. There isn't anything they can hurt themselves with it. The packaging is well presented, bright colourful and eye catching. I liked the fact that you could touch Tigger through the box and see him spin. Made you believe that what was stated that he done was true. I paid £30 when this first came out. A very disappointing product if I'm honest. I would not recommend this product to anyone as ifs not build for purpose. You can get the product now for £14.95 on Amazon but still not worth the money as it does not do as it says.
The tumble time Tigger is a replica of Tigger one of Christopher robins Friends in Winnie the pooh. The toy is supposed to do cartwheels, handstands and says different phrases like "it is tumble time " and " guess how many tumbles I will do this time?". These actions are activated by clapping or shouting his name. His voice is quite good quality and does sound like Tigger and when tumbling he sings a song that has background music which is catchy .He has soft fit but is robotic inside so not cuddly. His fir is sponge washable
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my son. He loves Tigger who he calls "bounce bounce".
The biggest problem with Tigger is that he does seem to have difficulty staying standing. I have tried him on different surface but it seems to make little difference. As my son is too young to sit and let him do his tumbles it doesn't matter to much as he pulls him over anyway but for this reason it isn't the greatest problem. but will be as my son grows and his expectations become higher. My son does try and copy Tigger and gets me to help him do forward rolls at the same time which is pretty cute.
I think there are better Tigger products out there for Tigger fans.
Not great.. Tumble Time Tigger is a very expensive toy for entertainment value. My daughter was brought this product when she was two years old. Unfortunately no matter what surface you put it on after a couple o tumbles tigger falls over and is unable to get up again without a helping hand. This product did not interest my daughter at all and was sat in the corner of her bedroom for about a year unused and I have now ebayed it on as she didn't play with it at all. One of the worse toys that she has been brought and defiantly not worth the money. This product might be better suited to an adult collecter rather than young children but it is still an expensive gift. Cannot be cuddled due to the hard hands and feet. I would choose an alternative item rather than Tumble Time Tigger. It does talk though.
Our daughter was given a Tumble Time Tigger as a birthday present back in the summer. She loves Tigger and this was a great present for her. Unfortunately however the poor tigger has only been played with a handful of times. I think this is due to a number of things that I will cover in this review.
Tumble Time Tigger is made by Fisher Price and is recommended for children aged 18 months and over. There isn't anything they can hurt themselves with it; it's purely for activating Tigger.
He can be bought for a whopping £30, although I would recommend you try and get him cheaper if you want to buy him as I don't believe he's really worth this much.
Tumble Time Tigger is designed to sing and do cartwheels. The motion he takes is entertaining for children and all the children who have been through our house since we've had him have played with him and loved him. To activate Tgger you press his nose to start with. He will start to turn over and sing his tunes as he goes. Occasionally he lands on his head and stays there, but most of the time he does full turns. He can keep going for quite a while, and is also activated by clapping at certain intervals when he asks you to clap. This is one of the reason children need to be a bit older to understand what Tigger wants you to do.
He will also carry on by voice activation. We have found that this doesn't necessarily mean calling his name as the box suggests, more general noise and when you have a small group of children shrieking at this funny tiger doing somersaults, he thinks you're calling him and does it more.
Occasionally if you're unlucky Tigger will fall over on his side and he'll look like he's trying to do side press ups. This is quite comical for an adult to see but for children it means Tigger is stuck and will need picking back up again.
Tigger requires no less than six AA batteries to make him work via his little on/off switch in his back. This works out to be expensive as if he is left on these won't last too long.
I was expecting Tigger to be a cuddly toy with sturdy arms and legs; however his whole body is rigid which makes for a not very comforting toy. I appreciate he wouldn't be able to tumble without some structure to him, but he's more like a robot in a Tigger suit. This is one of the reasons why I don't rate this toy very highly.
My daughter loves watching him tumble but she wants to pick him up all the time and cuddle him, and then gets frustrated when he falls over and won't work properly. If I can get her to watch from afar then it really does keep her amused watching him for ages.
Overall I wouldn't spend the £30 on him; there are far better toys out there on the market. It's a great addition for any Tigger fan though, but you will find yourselves replacing the batteries too often, or he'll sit on a shelf looking pretty and gathering dust.
Watch out as the wonderful Tumble Time Tigger, doesn't do his usual bounce but performs fantastic cartwheels and keeps you guessing which way he will tumble next! With great phrases, sound activation and catchy Tigger songs, this is one performance not to miss.Kids won't believe their eyes when they see what Tigger can do.
