PRODUCT: Vtech Crazy Colours Torch ( Crazy Colours Torch

DESCRIPTION: A plastic activity torch for young children, with 5 x coloured flashing lights on a rotating dial, 3 x number buttons, sound effects, phrases, songs and an automatic shut-off function. Requires 2 X AAA batteries (included). Suitable for children aged 12 months upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Crazy Colours Torch is a fantastic interactive toy that has many features to entertain and educate young preschool children.

The torch has a chunky durable design with an integrated handle perfect for small hands to manage, and is covered in bright appealing colours that will instantly attract a young child's attention. The head of the torch has five lights, the colour of which can be changed by turning the red dial on the top.

The dial, or 'ring', has five cute animal graphics around the outside, which not only create fun visuals but, as they are rotated, generate corresponding animal noises as well as a good variety of sound effects, phrases and songs. A cute ladybird button on the handle can be pushed to generate additional sounds and phrases, and three large numbered buttons up the side of the torch teach basic counting, and also sound a number of fun melodies. Note that the lights are automatically activated by turning the dial or pressing any of the buttons on the torch, and the lights are both block and flashing.

The torch has an on/off switch on the side with a handy volume control option for louder or quieter play, and also an automatic shut-off function which helps to preserve the life of the batteries when not in use.

In our opinion, this is a really durable and well designed toy which provides masses of visual, auditory and tactile stimulation for a young child, as well as promoting fine motor skils and hand-eye coordination, and also enabling valuable teaching about numbers, colours and animals.

BAD POINTS: The toy is battery operated.

PRICE: Approx. £10
