Review: GALT Toys

Logan has been a very lucky boy recently and he felt even luckier when GALT asked him if he would like to test out some of their fab toys! We jumped at the chance and the lovely people from GALT sent Logan a Peep-o Puppet Cow and the Stacking Hen. Here is what we thought.

"With 175 years experience in toys and education, Galt know a thing or two about designing toys to encourage children to learn through play...and also have fun! All Galt toys are manufactured to the highest standards of quality and safety. From our unique Playnest for babies, to craft and science for all ages, Galt offer a great range of imaginative toys!"

Peep-o Puppet Cow
This little cow is adorable and actually quite big which is great as some peeping puppets we have had haven't been long enough to get the full effect. This little cow can be pulled right inside its cup hiding it completely and then *surprise* he springs out to greet your baby with a big smiley face. The handle is the perfect size for little hands too as Logan likes to give the cow a big kiss and a cheeky little chew! On the subject of chewing I feel this toy is very durable considering Logan has 12 teeth now and has chomped on the cow a good few times and he was not being gentle either. This little cow contains a bell as well so he jingles when you pull him up and down and if your child grabs him you will hear him crinkle. Brilliant for exploring touch and sounds. We love that this toy is very colourful and also the black and white colouring of the cow will be quite captivating to a young baby and help keep their attention for longer. If you do not fancy the cow yourself you can purchase the Dog or the Lion for your child, all 3 of these toys look amazing it will be hard to choose. The retail price for these peep-o puppets is £7.99 and you can purchase directly from the GALT online store with a standard delivery charge of £3.95.

Stacking Hen
We love the stacking hen, Logan is completely obsession with carrying around the base and chewing on the pole. Instead of putting the rings on he delights in taking them off and thinks it's brilliant. He'll watch myself or the other half stack up the hen for him then he'll dive right in pulling the rings back off then running away with the base. He thinks it is so funny he's started wanting a chase round the house when he runs away with the base. The stacking hen has so many textures, colours and sounds to explore it is very stimulating. It has a squeaky beak, crinkly wings and furry, rattle and jingle rings. You can rest assured this is a very safe toy as it is filled with foam and light weight so no worry on it being dropped on little toes. Another delight is that this stacking hen is machine washable so no panicking when your little one wants to share some chocolate with their favourite hen! This would be a great toy to take on journeys as it comes in a very handy PVC bag with carry handle. It would give your child a sense of importance if they were allowed to carry their stacking hen with them. You can purchase your very own stacking hen for £12.99 from GALT's online store with a standard delivery charge of £3.95.

Overall these are fantastically fun toys, lots of textures, colours and sounds to explore that will keep your child amused for a good while and also allow you to interact and be part of the fun. I feel these are a tad on the pricey side but they are good quality and you get what you pay for.

Logan's rating - 9/10
Mummies rating - 9/10
