My 14 month old Maisie loves her toys. Surprisingly she loves the simple ones that dont require batteries or lights to keep her entertained. Right now her favorites are the ones where she can put things inside, take them out and enjoy the miracle of cause and effect
That was why I was excited to have the opportunity to review Haba’s Ophelie and her chicks. Ophalie and her chicks is an adorable plush momma hen with 4 adorable chicks. Also included is a colorful plush ball with several openings. Ophelie has a pocket in her front apron just perfect for putting in and removing her baby chicks. She also has a hollow underside to hide her little ones.
The chicks themselves each have a fun sensory activity in an addition to an embroidered number on their chest. One chick makes crinkle sound. Another squeaks. They all make their
own unique sounds. To make the fun even better, each chick is a finger puppet, making this toy perfect for child and parent to play together. Included is the plush ball that allows your child to put the chicks in and pull them of out. My daughter literally spent 30 minutes playing with Ophelie and her chicks. She had so much fun pulling chicks in and out of the ball, hiding them under Ophelie and giggling as I made them as finger puppets to ‘talk’ to her.
Ophelie and her chicks has quickly become one of Maisies favorite toys. And because it is soft plush I dont mind her playing with them in her crib before bedtime.
I would highly recommend ophelie and her chicks to anyone looking for a fun, simple toy that allows their child to explore and use their imagination as well as teaching them about colors, textures, and sounds.
