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.

TheLaineyWayIsEssex Wed 17-Oct-12 10:16:20

done. would have been good to put in a specific age as my son is almost 2, but still technically one - but would by the time the test happens he may well be the 'right age' for the 2+ toys.

Flisspaps Wed 17-Oct-12 10:58:38

Done. Agree about the projector colours though. One cube in primary colours would be better (less money in that though wink)
