Too heavy and bulky for my baby to really enjoy
on August 14, 2011
My baby needs to be entertained all times of the day and his mind is like a sponge the size of a house. I thought this was a perfect toy because of how many dimensions it has and various activities would keep him entertained and interested. Im afraid to say that I love this toy more than he does.
Toys are personal from baby to baby. what they are captivated with ranges from their personal preferences, so to keep this review nuetral, because it isnt the toys fault, its a great toy, here are my issues.
This toy is HUGE and HEAVY. My baby, being a large baby at 7 months and 24 lbs, loves to manipulate the world around him. when he grabs this toy and tries to pick it up to explore it he cant hold it very long and sort of thrashes it all around. BEWARE! this is not a great toy to get smacked with it is hard. most of the time i take it away from him because he ends up hitting his own legs repeatedly or his face.
I only use this toy when it comes to tummy time or when he is in his highchair and cant pick it up and hurt himself.
Most of the toys have spinning elements, and while thats great there isnt a whole lot else going on. I wish he liked it better because the colors are great and the idea is amazing.
I wouldnt recommend this for a baby thats 6 months or even 7. maybe he will enjoy this in his 8th or 9th month and i will revise my review!
