Lilliputiens’ numerous mascots each have their own magical universe.

For review, I received Romeo The Well Fed ToadWhen I saw this toy on the HABA website, I knew that my son was just going to fall in love with this toad! My son recently turned one and thinks it is so fun to feed others his food/snacks, so I knew he was going to love feeding Romeo. And I was right!
Romeo The Well Fed Frog's Description:
Romeo is a handsome and funny toad! Made of a variety of materials, his feet rattle, tinkle and croak. In this greedy toad's enormous mouth, there are fish, a crab, an octopus and a fly to be discovered: four rattles offering a wealth of sounds and textures. Educational values: -Awakening of the senses through the different sounds (rattle, paper sound, sound chips) -Stimulation of the manipulation (take out and put back in the animals) -Discovery of the reflection of oneself -Development of the touch sense through the different fabrics used
Romeo came in a nice clear zipped bag (which is reusable- I'll find good use for it), so right away I was loving the "take out" process. Some baby/kid toys are so complicated to take out the their box, but I had no problems at all taking out Romeo. My son immediately lit up with a smile and wanted to play with him!
There are 4 little creatures (crab, fish, octopus & fly) for Romeo to eat! His mouth is large enough to fit all 4 comfortably in his mouth, without falling out which is nice! There is a soft handle at the top of Romeo's back so your little one can carry around Romeo around the house, or to take with them on an adventure. Romeo has a cute little tongue that sticks out, and he has a mirror on the front of his belly, so your little one can see themselves in it!
I think Romeo The Well Fed Frog is great for hand eye coordination as your child gets to practice putting the small creatures in Romeo's mouth. This toy will also help your child identify different textures and sounds!
The quality of Romeo is very well made! I like the colors and all the different fabric patterns and textures! This toy is such a cute idea and my son really does love playing with him! On the HABA website, they recommend this toy for ages 0-12months, but I can definitely see my son playing with this until at least 18-24 months.
Overall, I do recommend this toy! It's great for either a boy or girl and I personally thing for ages 0-24 months.
