My First Forever Friends | Review

Saturday, 31 October 2015


You all must remember Forever Friends. The cute and cuddly bears have been around now for over 25 years! Most recently they've joined forces with Golden Bear to create a brand new range for the Forever Friends collection - the My First Forever Friends Nursery collection!

We were lucky enough to be send a couple of the items for Parker to review - The Jingler and The Chime Bear. I was thrilled when the little bears arrived! With Parker being the second child we didn't need to purchase any toys or gifts for him; the poor boy is stuck with very pink, very girly toys (that Indie still tries to claim are hers haha). He now has some little toys of his own, and he definitely approves.


The Chime Bear was what I was instantly drawn to. It's based on the original design of the Forever Friends bear and is so sweet! It's lovely and soft and when Parker is bigger I know it'll be great for snuggling up to. With just a little shake the bear has a gentle chime sound, and you can even personalise the bear. On it's tummy is a little photo holder (which is baby safe so no need to worry about little ones getting into it). Just pop in a photo of your little ones favourite people to let them know you're not far away. We've got the natural bear, but it does come in pink or blue too!

The jingler is definitely Parker's favourite. It's small enough for him to hold; especially now he's discovered his hands, he's enjoying holding it and bringing it to his mouth haha. Again it's based on the Forever Friends design, except this little bear has a nappy on which is pretty sweet. It comes with a velcro strap so is perfect for on the go; attached to the car seat, pushchair, etc. The little bell inside keeps Parker amused and I think it's a bit more interactive than the chime bear.


I do think they aren't as visually stimulating as other baby toys. There are no bright colours or loud noises; but I know this is because of what they're based on. We have been loving them though, and I think it makes a lovely change from the rather bold, in your face toys you can get! If you want to have a look for yourselves the collection is available from many stores including Argos, with prices starting from as little as £6.99.

*Disclaimer - We were sent these two toys for the purpose of this review. However all opinions are honest and my own*
