When Thing One and Thing Two arrived home they instantly noticed the new addition however wrestling it off of The Toddler without him screeching 'Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine!!!!!!!' proved to be somewhat of a challenge.
I'll admit that the allure wasn't limited to The Sprogs as I caught The Husband having a sneaky play and I may have possibly borrowed it purely to show The Toddler that you can change the sound, honest. It was educational purposes only. Whaa?
The Family of Five adore music and musical instruments have always been a massive hit with The Sprogs so this is a very welcome addition. The only problem we have now is the whole sharing thing..... I may go and hide in the bath and let them work it out amongst themselves, ear plugs anyone?
I can imagine it will be one of those toys that The Husband temporarily hides from time to time......
