Flappy the Elephant is the newest animated plush toy we have adapted for children who use switches with their toys. Flappy has two play functions and both are switch accessible with any standard (3.5mm) switch. Both functions can also be activated by pressing the switch pads in his feet.
Connect and press the first switch to make Flappy engage with your child and encourage them to play a game of peek-a-boo. He plays this game by using his ears to repeatedly cover and uncover his eyes. Effectively hiding behind his big ears.
Connect and press the second switch and Flappy sings his song about his flappy ears. It’s a lovely tune; try encouraging you child to learn the words and sing along with Flappy.
Here’s a short video we made to show what Flappy the Elephant does and how he will encourage play. (Please note: the video is a shortened version of the peek-a-boo game and his song)
In order to make it easier to find similar toys on the website we group most of the animated toys in the ‘Talking, Singing & Dancing’ section on the website as well as in the ‘age appropriate category of 3 to 6 years’ and if they are newly featured also in the ‘newest switch adapted, sensory and tech toys’ section.
Do let us know what you think of Flappy the Elephant. Would you like to see more videos? Do they help you to judge whether these sorts of toys are appropriate for your child? Happy viewing. Mike
