Great quality but needs improvement
Reviewed in the United States on August 5, 2020
I like the quality of this toy - a sturdy well-made wooden box and a very smooth wooden ball. What prevented both of us (my baby and I) to enjoy this toy is that the wooden ball, when dropped, makes a VERY unpleasant "thud" sound. I noticed that when I showed my baby how to play, she would close her eyes in the anticipation of this sound. I think it prevented her from enjoying this toy at all. It was on her playing mat for about 1 week and she's never touched it. She is a very intelligent 9-months old and she warms up to new toys within a day or two, especially when parents play with it (and we did, a lot).
I wish the ball was made of silicone or felt to prevent a very loud sound when dropped off. Or, perhaps, the box could have had some lining to prevent the sound.
Great toy, I'd presume, but too annoying for our household's liking.
