I remember watching In The Night Garden with my son when he was about one, so around seven years ago. He’d have his milk before bed and drift off on my lap whilst watching it. Happy memories.
Fast forward to today and I’m still watching In The Night Garden with my third baby; Elsie. She loves to bob along to Upsy Daisy’s dance and smiles when Iggle Piggle finds a tiddle!
We were recently asked if we’d like to review* the new In The Night Garden Baby range from Golden Bear including multi sensory soft toys and comforters. How can you say no to that? I knew how happy it’d make my little girl so we waited patiently for the bits to arrive.
We were sent an Iggle Piggle Grabber and Upsy Daisy soft toy – both of which are gorgeously plush and soft. Elsie instantly recognised the characters judging by the look on her face. All the toys in the range have been created in beautiful pastel colours – they’d make a beautiful new baby/welcome to the world gift. Every time Elsie comes across Upsy Daisy around the house she picks her up, cuddles her close and say’s “Ahhhh”.
The Iggle Piggle Grabber has a rattle inside it which encourages Elsie to shake it and she loves being able to make a noise with it herself. Elsie’s around 13 months old now and we have started putting a few toys in her cot to play with when she wakes up in the mornings. Upsy Daisy and Iggle Piggle are most definitely a firm favourite due to all the different textures and sounds she can make with them. The grabber is the perfect size for her little hands and she loves to play with the tags on each character which have been specially woven for little people to explore.
The grabber toys (available in other characters) retail for around £4.99 and the larger soft toys around £9.99. I feel this is a reasonable price considering the massive popularity of the hit CBeebies show.
