  • My 6-yo's musical bear has been through the wash more times than I can count. Eventually, it stopped playing music, but the bear was more important than the music.

    If you can isolate the spot, try dunking/resting affected lamb appendage in dish of warm water with detergent. Squeeze water gently through it. Repeat with clear water to rinse. Dry.

    But once you get to the point (and if this is a favorite toy, you will!), know that washing (and even drying) is not ideal, and will eventually rust up the music box, the sweet toy will last years past where it would ordinarily have to be quarantined!

  • Check to see if the musical part can be taken out. Most of my daughters toys have boxes that can be removed & then you can hand wash it without worry.
