My daughter is 10 months old and LOVES mommy and daddy's books, however she also loves using her 7 teeth to chew them to bits and create a choking hazard. Enter this adorable set of chew-friendly books to save the day. Despite the set's title, the books do not make sound; I thought they may moo or make music when pressed, but this is not the case. The cube that comes with the book set jingles a bit but that is it.

The cube is a fabric-covered foam block that encases a jingle bell; since it is slightly muffled by the foam it's not annoying to adult ears.

Each book covers a different sound: ma-ma, da-da, and ba-ba. Inside each book shows things that start with that sound.

The drawings are very cute and clear; it is a nice tool to start teaching different animals, concepts and relationships.

The colors are awesome, very bright and stimulating; every page has a contrasting graphic and background color.

I love Sassy toys, they are always so colorful and have held my DD's interest longer than her other toys.

I highly recommend for the smallest bookworm in your life :)

Only gripe: These books have only one center page each and I wish that they had 2 or 3 inside since my daughter loves turning book pages.

I bought this for my 7 month old and it is a terrible, potentially harmful toy. She is teething and was immediately drawn to the colorful books, grabbing them, opening them, and, of course, putting them in her mouth. I was shocked to find that the colors ran. The product says paint free, but there is definitely some kind of paint on the books, and it dissolves in your baby's mouth. I do not know what they are made of, but I don't take risks with my baby's health and immediately took the toy away from her.

In addition to this hazard, the toy is not very good for introducing sounds. It has Ma-Ma, Da-Da, and Ba-Ba listed as the M, D, and B sounds. Then a picture of a monkey, a dog, and a sheep. Overall, it is a poorly designed, potentially dangerous baby toy.

I bought this product for my son when he was six months old, he is 8 months now. He has been enjoying looking at the bright pictures and turning the pages of the three books. Also biting them :) They are made of a soft material covered with very thin plastic so they are bendable. The books are one of his favorite toys. It comes with a soft cube with pictures and words on it. I highly recommend.

Cute set, but smells super toxic. I washed them a few times, but the books still smell horrible.

I purchased this as my son was turning 6mo, he's now 7months & both the block & books are his favorite toys. The books I read to him at night are cardboard so I don't let him play with them bc he likes to mouth them. But these are great, the material on both is teething friendly, easy to clean, a waterproof... he always grabs these first when I lay out his toys. He even knows how to flip the pages already! & loves looking at the simple bright pictures while acting like he's reading! My family was so impressed he was doing this, I always bring one of these books with when for visiting, he loves them! I did read controversy from a teacher about the word sound examples for the letters not being appropriate for proper pronunciation & she thought the books were bad, many disagreed with her even a PreK teacher on Amazon, I really don't think that's a big deal this young... I think these books are great for under 12months for baby to learn to get familiar with liking books & pictures. After a year or so I would probably encourage more "proper" educational books for pronouncing proper sounds after reading that comment... But for now these are great!

I bought these for my second child as my first son chewed everything and all his books. These books are great to look at and for teething. They are small enough for little hands and not heavy. My daughter loved the block and she was able to grasp it it and turn it around without losing it too much. I bought this when she was 3 months and she stills play with it at 10 months. As somone else mentioned, the phonics are incorrect, but it's great to replace wooden books that get chewed and could cause possible ingestion and chocking. My daughter loves to chew and pulls things apart easily but these books have not been peirced at all. I recommend for all infants.

I purchased this toy set because the "Technical Details" section on Amazon.com shows origin as "Made in USA." But when we received it, we were disappointed to find the package showing "Made in Nanning City, Guangxi Province, China."

This is a great toy for your little one. Got this for my GreatGrandson and he has loved it. It is safe for him and he loves the bright colors. He has had this since he was very small about 4 month's old. Mainly just looked at the colors at first but since then he carries them around with him. He is almost a year old now and they are still his favorite toy. We read to him and tell him what the pictures are now. Would buy this again.

I got these for my daughter when she was 6 months. I thought they were a little expensive for what we were getting when I opened these, but have since changed my mind. They aren't real books, just cartoon images with words under them. Each book is only three pages. However my daughter loves these. We read them too her, then she grabs them out of our hands and eats them. They are perfect for a teething child. Because they are basically rubber, we don't have to take them away from her like we do when she tries to eat the books with the paper or cardboard pages. She like the cube too.

I didn't think much of these when I first got them. I thought they were kind of cute, but the block was hard to grab and the books didn't seem all that exciting. BUT... when my daughter started trying to chew on every board book we had, I thought to pull these out and give them to her. She is 6 months old and just sat there for over half an hour turning and flipping and folding and gnawing on the book. Every time I give her one of these, she just lights up with joy. I think she prefers them over the cloth books we have because they are smaller and easier to handle. The ones we have did not have a bad smell like others have reported.
