My son is a hug fan of the CBeebies animation, Messy Goes To Okido, so when we were given the opportunity to review a large talking Messy Monster from Golden Bear Toys we were delighted.
The CBeebies programme is aimed at children aged 2-5 years old, but the soft toy is suitable for children from birth to any age Messy Monster fan.
The talking blue Messy Monster has a lovely cuddly body that children of all ages will love squeezing. Messy’s face has cute embroidered features and my son instantly made friends and couldn’t wait to press Messy’s tummy to hear his favourite sounds and popular phrases from the show, such as, “Balabalaboomboom” and “Let’s Okido!”
My son’s love of Messy meant that he took him to school to show his friends. He also played with him on the garden and chuckled, “Messy goes to football”
Along comes Half Term and I decided to take my son to Chatsworth House where they were hosting a Half Term Halloween hoot. He insisted we take Messy along on our day out so our new blue friend went on an adventure with us.
Along with the activities we took part in, the scenery on the grounds were spectacular so we decided to let Messy chill out and take it all in.
Much to my amazement, my son demoted his ‘snuggie’, which he has slept with since birth, to allow Messy to join in his in bed. How cute is this? Messy is most definitely part of the family!
The RRP for this Large Talking Messy Monster is £14.99 which I think is a great, affordable price. This toy needs to be added to everyone’s Christmas list.
Approx. size 24cm and suitable from birth.
Batteries are included, however the internal sound device is not accessible (for whenever the batteries do run out).
