Winnie The Pooh by TOMY


Both Thomas and Charlie love watching cartoons on television and so having toys that are associated with the programmes are a big plus. Winnie the Pooh has been a family friend for years and both boys love it too. I find that it's a great bedtime cartoon as it's settling and helps the boys relax before bed.

We were sent some of the new Winnie the Pooh range from TOMY to review that are great for young children, probably for ones aged around the same as Charlie. I couldn't wait to get them out and get playing, for Charlie of course (I'm a big kid at heart). TOMY have always been known for great quality toys that last forever so I was keen to see if the products still live up to their reputation.

Cuddle n Glow Pooh
A super soft plush toy that is perfectly sized for babies to cuddle at around 10inches tall. Whilst Pooh is being cuddled his cheeks glow red and if you press his nose, 5 different lullabies play to sooth children off to sleep.
Pooh even snores and yawns ready for his bed in his night shirt and sleeping hat.
The soft glow nightlight can be used with or without the lullabies to help baby sleep and give a little glow into the room. It has an automatic timer which can be set to 10 or 20 minutes so once baby has drifted off to sleep, the toy will turn itself off and not play all night.
Both boys love this and actually fight over who gets to cuddle him first, Charlie usually wins after squawking at Thomas and will gently and lovingly cuddle Pooh until he eventually drifts off. The fact that you can set the timer is a big plus as it means that I don't have to go into Charlie's bedroom to turn it off.

This is such a simple toy but Charlie really loves it. 9 little plaques that all flip over to reveal different pictures.
The little handles are perfect for small hands and the simplicity of it means that it is perfect for young children and babies. 
Charlie loves to just flick the plaques over and find each character, giggling as he does it whereas Thomas flips them over and tries to match all the colours of each, naming each character as he goes.

I find that this is a great toy for playing memory games. We try to guess what character is coming next, see whether we can remember where each is and see who can get all the colours to match up the quickest.  

Bounce Bounce Tigger
This toy is based on the fact that Tigger loves bouncing hence the name of the toy. He is a soft plush but contains a capsule inside him 'where the magic happens' and when switched on he will play soft sounds and make 'boing boing' jumping noises. 
The boys like to throw him to each other and hear the noises he makes whilst flying through the air but also, Charlie just loves sitting with him to see how fast he can get Tigger to bounce.

One of the best things is that Tigger is machine washable. The capsule inside can be taken out so everything electrical is removed and so can be washed. this is great because plush toys never stay clean too long in our house.
Just to be sure that it washes ok, I gave it a try. I was so glad when it came out fully intact and wasn't in pieces around my washing machine. The toy washes great and the colours haven't faded and are still bold and bright.

Check out our video to see them all in action. Note: I have a very strong Yorkshire accent so be warned!


As you can see, we thoroughly enjoyed playing testing out these toys and getting to grips with them. Charlie and I give the Winnie the Pooh range a thumbs up for quality and excitement, great for younger children and for imaginative play.

The Winnie the Pooh range can be purchased from all good retailers.
You can follow TOMY on Facebook and on Twitter for all updates about their new and upcoming toy ranges.

  3. I think the Cuddle and Glow Pooh sounds brilliant, a perfect combo of a Teddy and nightlight - I also think it's great that you can have the glowing on and turn the lullabies off because if I dream Twinkle Twinkle little star anymore I think i will crack up lol x
