It was Monday afternoon and I was midway through cooking dinner when there was a knock at my door with a parcel. From the clear presentation on the packaging I instantly knew it was a trumpet. I didn’t remember buying this…but then the penny dropped and I recalled that the lovely Lydia from pBuzz had offered to send this out for my babies to trial.
I liked the packaging I think it was well presented with a picture, small description and social media links.
I ripped into the box with excitement (I’m a big kid like that) and out pulled my daughter the simply packaged pBuzz with the retail price of £19.99
It came in 2 pieces and although it’s just ‘2 pieces’ due to my Mummy brains I though it would be best to check for a diagram so I could mindlessly put this together quickly as Summer was all hands. I couldn’t see an instruction picture but worked it out in the end.
Summer was all over her new toy like a rash, anything that makes a noise…she’s there! Eventually when I got to have a turn I thought it was broken. Maybe this is very silly of me but I thought when you blew through this it would make a sound as in there was something built inside. However this isn’t the case, you blow through this and hear your own voice if I’ve explained that well enough. Basically it’s a glorified plastic tube.
It couldn’t have been anymore than 5 minutes after getting the trumpet out of its box and Summer had this in 3 pieces on the floor. I instantly thought ‘well…that’s that then!’ I showed Summer (aged 2) how to put this back together and then that was it, I’d created another fun activity with this toy.
Perhaps a little too big for a 2-year-old however Summer loved this and has played on it a little everyday since receiving it. The pBuzz is really well made and robust, it’s not only fun to make noise with but a great way to start learning music notes for older children. It’s easy to keep clean as it only needs a wipe down and relatively easy to store as it’s not too wide.
It’s a thumbs up from Mumsy Mum x
