Lullaby Ellie by Lamaze
This cuddly little elephant is a wonderful music toy for infants and toddlers who still enjoy a little lullaby at bed time. Pull down on Ellie's trunk and as it coils upward Brahms lullaby plays. To complete the picture, Ellie holds a little baby elephant in the end of her trunk. Strengths: It's cute and I have found that children like the challenge of trying to independently activate the music. Weaknesses: It has limited play value. As a child gets older Ellie can be pushed around in a stroller or cuddled, but there isn't really a lot of diversity in what can done with her. Price: $18-$20. Where to Buy: These are still available through an outside vendor with Amazon, but soon they will probably only be available on sites like eBay.
