The Musical Baby Jake Review and Giveaway!


Baby Jake graces our television screens on a daily basis, Leo quite matter of factly loves him. 

Baby Jake has been jumping all over our household screens since Leo was a baby himself, and his love for the show has simply grown as he has got older.

I have never really looked into the Baby Jake toys though as I didn’t think that Leo would recognise him as ‘Baby Jake’. I am sure many people will agree with me when I say that the Baby Jake toys often don’t offer a canny resemblance to the character himself, and I think this is what has put me off.

Leo has recently been sent a Musical Baby Jake to play with and he is very impressed, he definitely knows that it is Baby Jake thanks to the familiar Yacki Yacki Yoggi sing along that plays once you press his tummy. 

My personal first impression was that Baby Jake was quite a lot smaller than I was expecting him to be, in reality he fits in the palm of my hand and I can’t help thinking that he should be a little bit bigger. Saying that though he is the perfect size for a toddler to play with and his soft body makes him easier for them to handle, so in that respect I can understand and justify the size of him.

In terms of how Baby Jake looks facially, he looks exactly as I expected. He has the usual look about him and I have been told by other family members that he looks a bit strange. I can see their points, but I then take into consideration how they are modelling the plastic doll on a real baby’s face, and they are never going to be able to make him look exact, but the resemblance is there. 

Baby Jake just looks like a real cheeky little chappy.

Leo has enjoyed trying to feed Baby Jake his bottle of milk, and even tried to share his Orange with him. There has even been some dance bopping when we press Baby Jake’s tummy for some more Yacki Yacki Yogie! So I am thinking that Baby Jake has been a hit with Leo and at the end of the day that is what it comes down to. As long as Leo is happy and enjoying his play time experience, it doesn’t matter if Baby Jake doesn’t look identical to what he does on the television.

Musical Baby Jake retails at £9.99 and is suitable for toddlers aged 18+ months.

I have noticed that although Baby Jake requires batteries, it does specify in small print on his tag that they are non-replaceable batteries, this means once they have run out, that it is. I can’t say yet how long these batteries will last as he is still going strong, but I would like to think that there will be lots of fun left to have with this doll to make him worthy of his price tag.


Over all Leo loves this doll and is certainly getting lot’s of play value out of it. I do think that the volume of the doll should be louder as it does play very quietly and if there is lots going on in the background, it can be harder to hear.
