Ever been watching TV and hear a song that comes along... maybe even one that perks your kids' interest. Well, one day that is exactly what happened at our house.
"They are happy, Happy Nappers, and they love to play with you..." the kids' ears perk up, they come out to the living room... and they WANT.
I have to admit, Happy Nappers are awfully cute!
We were thrilled to receive the Castle to Dragon Happy Napper for review.
This is all one piece... the door unzips to allow the dragon to come out and play (after his nap, of course). Do you see the little "doorbell" button there on the right? If you ring it the dragon inside gives a few grumbles, as if waking up. Then, once it is nap time again, you unzip the back of the dragon, turn the plush toy inside out, and send dragon to bed.
Our four year old, Gabriel, LOVED this Happy Napper. He carried it everywhere he went for a couple weeks after receiving it. He slept with it, took it in the car, everywhere.
He loved the doorbell... but, he loved it so much the batteries died (or he disconnected the wires). And here is one thing that I didn't like... there is no way to change the batteries. The battery case also floats around in the plush toy, and since you are frequently moving the stuffing, it seems like it would be very easy to disconnect the wires. We aren't sure if it was a wire disconnect, or if the batteries died, but either way, Gabriel lost a lot of interest in the Happy Napper when he couldn't "wake the dragon up". So now the Happy Napper sits on his bed, or in the closet.
I DO think this is a fun toy, and a great way to make nap time a lot more fun. I hope that future Happy Napper will have a way to change the batteries and a more secure battery case/wiring so that these toys can last longer.
Happy Nappers can be purchased online at www.happynapper.com , but I have also seen them in some big box stores. (My local K-Mart carries them).
Happy Nappers are recommended for children age 3 and up. They are made of 100% polyester and made in China.
