**Dee the Dragon**
When I came across the Dee Dee Dragon I decided to pick it up for my little boy. While it was mainly pink in colour we have loved every Lamaze toy we own, and so I decide to purchase it for him. We have not been disappointed and my son instantly fell in love with the dragon.
The first thing you notice about the dragon is the appearance. There are lots of bright colours to keep little one entertained and stimulate their senses. It looks lovely and really is attention grabbing. My little boy could not take his eyes of this toy when he first received it and he still loves it now. It is mainly pink which means that most people seem to purchase for girls, but to be honest my son had no problems with it being pink and loved the bright colours.
As there are a range of different textures wherever little one lays their hands on the dragon there is something new for them to explore. There are also a number of activities for little one to play with. The main body of the dragon is made up of a soft body, but on the tummy and one side of the tail it has a layered texture to provide lumps and bumps for little one to rub their hands over. The mouth has small ribbons coming out as if it is blowing fire, which both looks good and it is great for when little one is learning to move their hands as they can pull and tug at the ribbons.
In each hand Dee is holding something to entertain little one. In one hand is a large rattle ball on a ribbon which can either be hit directly to create a great rattle sound, but also whenever the dragon is moved in the slightest it also makes the rattling sound. It is transparent with lots of colourful balls inside for little one to look at. In the other hand is a flower made up of different layers of materials in different colours. It is nice and soft and bends in little ones hand, but when they come to the middle of the flower they are greeted with a hard knot of material which provides a different texture and it can be pulled on.
When they reach the back of the dragon they are greeted with two large wings. These wings bend when little one touches them as they are made of soft material, but they also crinkle and make a nice loud noise for your baby to enjoy.
As you can tell from above there is a lot to keep a young baby entertained. While at birth the colours are great to look at, as they start to explore there is more than enough to keep them entertained.
