We got this as a gift when my son was 5 months old. He loves playing with it. There are many ways to play with it, so it keeps my son from being bored. (Musical notes, different sounds and lights, play with wires on top). It is definitely better than other toys we have. Very interactive & educational! Highly recommend. Only thing, gotta be careful to prevent the baby from hitting himself with the toy, since it's fairly heavy. It's good for any baby starting from 5 months to over 1.5 years, because you can learn numbers and colors.

While my 14-month-old son has never actually grabbed the string and pulled the catapillar around, he loves this toy. He carries it around and presses all of the movable feet (Note: only one side has feet that move) and then, of course, tosses it down to hear it play songs. So far nothing he has done has caused any issues and he still plays with this toy months later - which is great considering his usual attitude towards toys.

I would recommend this toy for any toddler that is fine walking by himself or herself and that likes music and making things make sounds!

If you are wanting to buy your child a learning/musical toy, then skip this and get something of better quality like the Leapfrog Caterpillar. My Mom bought the Leapfrog Caterpillar for my Niece and it has more features and is more durable. Someone bought my girls this Megcos brand and it is a crappier version of the Leapfrog.

My girls DO like to play with it, they like to pull it by the string and enjoy pushing the buttons to make noises or music.

BUT as a parent I can see what my 13 month old twins can not. The legs are very cheap and they would be very easy to break off and then be something too small for little ones to put in their mouth, thus being a choking hazard.

The 'wires' with the toys they can move are pretty cheap & flimsy, again something that could easily be broken and the parts are the perfect size for a choking hazard. Another reviewer said one of the wires on theirs broke and I am not surprised.

It can be pulled along by the string but since this is very cheap it is the squeakiest thing.

This only has numbers 1-8, most toys have at least 1-9. This also does not have all the colors like most other toys...take a close look at the few colors of the caterpillar legs...orange, blue, yellow, green.

All in all this is a cheaply made toy that does not have as many learning or fun features as other comparable toys. I also don't think it is a very safe toy since it could be easily broken and has choking hazards. Also the numbers that are on the feet are only stickers, one of my girls already took her little finger and scraped off one of the numbers. I saw that she had been picking at the feet but I didn't realize they were only stickers until she was trying to eat something...a little sticker number.

If you do want to buy this you can find it at Kmart for a LOT cheaper than it is on here.

My daughter was given this as a gift and I remember frowning when it came out of the box. Well it turns out this toy is one of my daughters favorites. It appears to have an endless supply of tunes. Just when we think we have heard every song this thing could possible play, it throws out a new one! Speaking of throwing, we have tile floors and my daughter throws and bangs this toy daily. We have had for 3 months now. Not a scratch or crack anywhere on it.
The buttons are easy to press. Would have been nice if both sides did something but she seems to know that only one set of feet make the sounds so I guess it's ok. She drags it around the house by the string and runs it into walls and furniture. It's still intact. Overall, a surprising find and highly recommended!

I have contacted the CSPC after our son broke one of the toy "wires" another reviewer mentioned. He had only played with it a handful of times over the 1-2months we had this toy and we did not even notice that he broke the wire until we found one of the small beads on the ground. I am so grateful that he did not swallow/choke on this bead, but clearly this is a hazardous toy that can put children at risk. I hope the government will have this toy recalled or at least better warnings placed on it, as there was no indication when we purchased it that it could be dangerous for a 1 year old. Please do NOT buy this toy for a young child.

They have this toy at my son's daycare. He loves it so much I had to buy him one. Apparently it's a room favorite-I got another for his friend! Lots of fun, bright colors, improves motor skills... great toy. My only critique is that some of the beads on the top can be difficult to slide around some of the turns in the track, but that doesn't seem to bother my little man. Highly recommend!

Wow, not only does my nephew love it but so do I! It has bright lights and lots of songs to entertain a 6 month old.

Imagine my surprise when I realized that one of the 40 songs played was one of the German nursery rhymes m mother used to sing to me. Kuckuck, Kuckuck ruft aus dem Wald.

Now I love it even more and sing the song to my nephew!

my son likes this toy and its multiple uses is nice. but one of the wire pieces with the little bead toys on it broke and the beads came off and are chokable size.
so, great if it is not broken. dangerous if it breaks. i have not contacted the company yet but plan to do so.

This is a fine product I guess but not what i wanted. I wanted one like the alphabet caterpillar where all 14 legs make a noise or give a letter or a word and this didn't come close so I just donated it to toys for tots.
