4.0 out of 5 stars Good choice, but fades in wash., July 5, 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Fuzzy Bee and Friends (Cloth Books) (Rag Book)
My 5 mos old daughter enjoys chewing and manipulating this book since it has lots of fabric flaps to tug (ex: as insect wings) textures (shiny fly eyes, worm skin) and bright colors.
The cover is crinkly and it closes with Velcro. It would have been nice if it had a fold back Velcro tab so you can wash the book open without it snagging on things. It also would have been nice if the snail was a squeaker or if the spider would dangle from the web on a cloth cord. The little spider legs are cute, but very spindly and small -- watch out in case they come off with wear.
I'm a bit concerned about the colors fading/bleeding in the wash but overall it's one of the more attractive cloth books for babies and I think it was a good choice. Perhaps soaking it in vinegar when it is first new would have helped with the color fastness?
My 6 year old niece enjoyed reading the page rhymes out loud, so it ought to have a good lifespan.

It says right on the package and the tag this book is surface-wash only, I've washed mine in the washer with minimal fading though.
