The base is a dowel rod stuck into a wooden base.

The pieces are smooth, the paint seems very sturdy, and it looks great.

The paint has already chipped off in large chunks.

I ordered this rainbow stacker after reading several great reviews. My 13 mo. old daughter grabbed for it as I was unpacking it, so I think she's going to love it. HOWEVER, I am disappointed in the quality - several of the rings are stuck together by paint. The ones I have been able to pry apart have paint stuck on them (blue on yellow for example) and the purple & yellow ones I have not been able to pry apart yet (neither has my husband!) I'm sure they will come apart eventually, but personally I would not give this as a gift due to this quality control issue.

This is a good basic addition to any toddler's toy collection. We like it because:

- It's wood. The rings make a satisfying "clink" that plastic or cloth stacking rings lack.
- It's easy for kids to do. We've had other stacking toys (like the Melissa & Doug stacking train) where certain pieces only fit in certain places, and that is frustrating for little ones just figuring out how things work. This one's simple and straight-forward.
- It's inexpensive.

My older son received this when he was about 18 months and played with it quite a bit. Now his younger brother enjoys it, and has been able to put the rings on & off since about 12 months.

(Just a warning: the stick, or "ring holder" as we call it, often gets banged around like a hammer in our house - this is partly why they like this toy so much, but it means close supervision is necessary!)

I bought this as a safe and natural alternative to plastic. However, the rings were cracked and the paint chipped off. Fortunately, I noticed this before my baby 'explored' it with his mouth because he would have had a mouthful of paint chips - no exaggeration. So much for being safe and natural - I had to throw it away. So unsafe that I had to write a review.

The top piece, the blue one pictured, is small enough to be a choking hazard. Just FYI. We removed that piece and threw it away.

Also, the pole and the hole are small requiring really really good fine motor skills. For babies just learning this skill look for bigger poles and holes otherwise, it's really hard for them to do this one.

Do not buy this toy! Just received it today and washed them off for my daughter to play with. The paint has already chipped off in large chunks. I found the paint chips on my daughter. I have no idea why this toy isn't being recalled in the US. Cute but dangerous. Do not buy this for your child.

Back before I actually had a kid, when I was insisting on natural materials only, I ordered the Melissa & Doug Rainbow Stacker, even though I'm not a fan of M&D toys as a rule (I find many of them to be cheaply made).

We got the classic Fisher-Price Rock-A-Stack as a gift when Jackson was born, and I remember scoffing a little. "Plastic! Look at this silly thing with the ridiculous foil shiny thing inside the top ring. They couldn't even make it a real rainbow, they ruined it putting those dumb little balls in the top half of the red ring. And why does it rock?! What kind of ridiculous popcorn-button-on-the-microwave unnecessary extra feature is that?"

Of course, six months later, the Rock-a-Stack is the undefeated champion of playtime, and the Rainbow Stacker sits unused in the closet. Jackson loves the balls in the red ring, he likes to make it rock, he can actually get the rings off and play with them, and I don't worry one bit when he teethes on the fat, squat, yellow ring-holder-thingy in the middle.

The rings on the M&D stacker, on the other hand, are heavy and hard for him to lift and manipulate, the red ball rolls away (and reminds me of a scary clown nose), and I'm always worried he's going to gag himself when he tries to chew on the tall, skinny wooden stick in the middle.

The Rainbow Stacker might be a great toy for a three-year-old, but it's not a good fit for my baby at this stage.

I read other reviews that stated the paint comes off this toy, however I assumed the company would have addressed this issue by now so I went ahead and ordered it for my daughter for Christmas. Luckily I didn't let my daughter play with this toy before I cleaned it, because when I did paint came off every piece. It was flaking off some pieces and wiping off on others, and I was simply wiping it off with water and a paper towel. I was extremely disappointed in this product. From now on I will stick with Brio when I want to buy wood toys.

I ordered this for my one year old thinking a wooden toy would be "cuter" than the standard plastic stacking rings. The size of this is considerable smaller than any others I'd seen. My son puts everything in his mouth so the stacked center had to be shelved immediately. I didn't want him to impale himself on the slim dowel! He liked to crawl around with the little rings, they were a good size for chubby little hands...but then the paint started chipping off the rings. So that's one toy I trashed already!
