Peter Rabbit is one of the things I remember fondly from my childhood – Reading the books about Peter Rabbit and all his animal friends, watching a TV show and loving the simplicity of the talking animals and lovable Peter. Peter Rabbit is now a fairly new CBeebies animation and one that I have only recently introduced LP to. The TV show has all the characters that I remember modernised in a computer generated cartoon that is full of colour, sweet stories and an atmospheric soundtrack. There’s also no worry of getting bored of seeing the same cartoon as there are already fifty eleven-minute episodes that have been keeping LP entertained!
Vivid Toys have created a range of toys to compliment the familiar Beatrix Potter cartoon and we were lucky enough to be sent two products from the range, a 6 inch soft toy and a 10 inch talking Lily Bobtail soft toy. LP instantly recognised the characters and wanted to give them cuddles straight away, she was also excited when I told her to press Lily’s tummy and she spoke one of a selection of pre-programmed phrases in the same voice used in the cartoon.
Both the toys are a great likeness to their TV characters even complete with cute costumes and are well made, incredibly soft and the perfect size for baby and toddler cuddles. LP now has new best friends who sit and watch TV with her. Peter Rabbit was meant to be for Little Man but he hasn’t had much of a look in as LP just wants to hold onto her new rabbits!
The plush toys that we were sent to review are just two items from a vast range of Peter Rabbit themed toys produced by Vivid Toys. Also in the range are playsets, figures, cards and puzzles – Something to suit any age fan of Peter Rabbit!
The Talking Lily Bobtail has an RRP of £14.99 and the plush 6 inch Peter Rabbit has an RRP of £6.99
Disclosure: We were sent the above toys for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.
