Chicco have asked us to find 21 Mumsnetters to try out a selection of toys from their range with their little ones. Chicco say "Making a baby smile is the most extraordinary job ever. Everything we design has a single purpose; to enter a home, meet a baby and make him happy. Our range of toys is designed exactly with that purpose as well as assisting the babies at each stage of their growth providing them with the most suitable form of stimuli to help their development.

We work very closely with Osservatorio Chicco, our Baby Research Centre dedicated to growing our knowledge of children from 0 to 3 years of age and their psycho-physical, emotional and social needs, in constant collaboration with the medical-scientific world".

We have a variety of toys available for testing - please read the following and pick the one you'd like to try out. We have three of each of the below toys available.

If selected you will be sent the toy to try with your child and then asked to add feedback to a thread on Mumsnet (we'd like testers to add first impressions and their thoughts after a further week or so) and also to add a review to the relevant section of the MN review area. You will be able to keep the toy.

Everyone who takes part and adds feedback as required would be entered into a prize draw where one winner will get £100 of Chicco products they would be sent a catalogue and can choose the products they would like.

If you'd like to sign up for this product test please add your details by completing the form here

thanks and good luck smile
PS. Also this Christmas, Chicco is also offering a collection of "happy moments" rewarding each consumer who chooses to celebrate Christmas with its toys. Anyone buying just £29 of Chicco toys between 15 October and 31 December will receive a booklet featuring four great experiences, something for everyone in the family - visit for more information. All testers will also receive this booklet and we'd love to hear your feedback on this on the feedback thread.

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Tue 16-Oct-12 13:11:38

Id love to test a baby or a toddler please! If theres a preference, can I test a toddler, they're so much more interesting than babies... grin

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Tue 16-Oct-12 13:12:30

P.S. Will you send my toddler by post or do I have to collect? And do I get to keep them when the trial is over?

Done! LO would love that play gym!

Climbingpenguin Tue 16-Oct-12 13:18:05

filled in, thanks for the opportunity but agree with the dislike for blue/pink projector options. Wouldn't it be more stimulating to have other colours that they don't see as often. (even if we don't buy them pink/blue ILs every other person does)

Weekipper Tue 16-Oct-12 13:48:35

smile I've done it. Fingers crossed as this is the first time I've applied to be a tester. Or should I say wee-one will be the tester blush

mumnosbest Tue 16-Oct-12 13:51:14

ZombTEE Tue 16-Oct-12 14:00:17

Saggy, feel free to come pick up my toddler at any time. I'll even send some toys.

I'll take him back, though, after I've had about 3 days of sleep.
