What is it
A soft plush toy that doubles as a piano for baby to begin playing songs and developing musical skills. Each of the coloured stripes plays a different musical note when pressed.
Young infants will love the bright colours and big friendly face, and older babies will enjoy exploring and learning that each stripe plays a different sound.
Cosimo also plays a special musical tune of his own when you switch to a different mode. Keep baby engaged with surprise crinkles, contrast patterns, and multiple textures to explore.

What our experts think
Our testers were delighted with the different sounds and textures they discovered while playing with the Cosimo Concerto. The variety of textures that were appealing to little fingers; through exploration the babies were refining their fine motor skills and they kept returning to it throughout the day. We really liked the musical sounds that the toys made – they were definitely appealing to to the babies and parents found them just the right volume!
Playing the musical sounds was easy for little hands; babies learnt that their actions resulted in an effect (supporting logical thinking and memory) and there were lots of smiles and giggles as they played the notes again and again. This is a good way to provide sensory stimulation as babies learn to distinguish different sounds from one another.
