Brio Duck Review

| July 7, 2012

We have been lucky enough to receive a beautiful wooden Brio Duck to review from Hello Baby Direct.

My baby, Imogen, has always loved ducks.

One of the first baby signs she made was the quack quack sign when she saw a duck in the local pond.

Since then we’ve bought story books with bright yellow duck characters and rubber ducks for playing in the bath.

But we’ve never had a duck toy until the pull along Brio Duck.

Imogen’s face lit up the moment she saw the box with the photographs of the yellow, white and red duck on the sides. She knew what was hiding in that box!

And when it came out of the box there were squeals of excitement as we pulled the Brio Duck along our wooden floor and it shook it’s head from side to side and flapped it’s yellow wings.

Playing with the Brio Duck has really helped Imogen in the early stages of learning to walk, promoting balance and motor skills.

At 15 months Imogen is now very stable on her feet and running around, with the Brio Duck never far behind, quacking at the pleasure of being such a loved toy.

As with all Brio wooden toys, this is a quality toy that will last the test of time and is beautifully crafted.

You can purchase the Brio Duck pull along wooden toy at Hello Baby Direct.
