Baby enjoys this
Reviewed in the United States on January 9, 2019
This was a present from my parents for my now 6 month old baby. I myself didn't opt to buy this since it is basic in appearance and I wasn't certain my son would enjoy a non-colorful toy. I did put it on my approved list of gifts earlier on and am thankful I forgot to remove them from the list.
When this toy arrived it was scratched at the top of one of the balls as well as at the base of the same ball. When I contacted the company, they promptly sent me a new one, free of defects within a week.
My 6 month old has enjoyed playing with this toy for quite some time now. I believe he started grasping toys around 3 or 4 months old. I think anytime after a baby shows they can grasp a toy is a perfect time to introduce this simple but wonderful rattle.
After a couple of months of use my son still plays with this happily when we hand it to him. It is not a toy that loses it's luster. The rings make a soft clacking noise as the rattle is shaken about. There is no actual bell-type rattle sound that comes from the balls at the end. The rattle is sound that is emitted by the rings around the bar in the middle.
We have a 2 year old toddler as well, and I do wish I had gotten her this toy two years ago when she was just starting to reach and grasp objects. If I misplace this toy, I will be sure to get one for my future babies. Highly recommend!
