Does anyone know if the Winkle is BPA-free? Sep 22, 2010
The post from T. Glass doesn't cite a source. But I was able to find the following. URL where I found it below the quote. "Katie said... I contacted Manhattan toys about the winkel. Here is their response. "Katie, Thank you for contacting Manhattan Toy, The Winkel is manufactured with PU tubing. As such, it does not contain PVC (phthalates) or Polycarbonate (BPA). In general I can't say that all of our toys are BPA, and PVC free. I can say that our toys are safe and meet the safety requirements that are put forth by American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the European Union (EN71). If you have another toy you are inquiring about, please send me an email and I can let you know if it contains BPA, or PVC. Best Regards, Tomeko " http://zrecs.blogspot.com/2008/04/zrecs-guide-to-safer-teethers.html
Can't decide to go for this or Bright Starts Clack and Slide Activity Ball .... suggestions? My baby is 6 months old. Apr 9, 2014
We got the Winkel for our grandson when he was about 4 months old and he enjoyed it a lot for a few months. Now that he's 8 months, he only reaches for it when he wants something to gnaw on (great for teething!) but he doesn't really "play" with it anymore. His favorite early toy is still the Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes. He consistently goes right to this toy whenever he's on the floor or grabs for it on the changing table. He did like the Clack and Slide for awhile, but seems to be already outgrowing it now. Newest favorite toy is quickly becoming our iPads and iPhones. So I guess he's already a tech-a-holic type kid! Good luck finding the best toys for your little one, and hope this helps you!
Is this a noise free toy? Mar 8, 2014
There is a tiny little rattle inside. I can't tell if its supposed to rattle all the time... It only makes a slight noise if I shake it. Our daughter rarely shakes it hard enough. The best part is that their tiny little fingers can grip on the little colored rings!!
Yes, this is marked as such, made in China.
