My DD loved this toy/teether when she was younger--and every now and then you could catch her dad or I twisting it around, too :) For the price and entertainment value I think it is a great thing to keep in your diaper/travel bag--lots of texture, movement, color and fun in such a little package! I have bought a couple as gifts for new moms since... all thank me and say what a great gift it is, and they never would have thought to buy it or ask for it.

Only drawback for me--cleaning it. There are tiny little gaps in between the pieces that twist, so for me I didn't think a run through the dishwasher was good enough. I usually boiled it for 5-10 mins or so every couple of days in addition to the dishwasher... but maybe I'm just a little OCD! Package says not to dishwasher/boil it, but I didn't have any issues from doing so.

I bought this from Babies "R'' Us when my son started putting everything in his mouth. The teether has 4 soft rubber sections, each with different textures. It also rattles and can be bent in a number of different ways. The teether is easy for my son to grasp and twist. He enjoys chewing on the rubber sections and likes to throw it to hear rattle sounds. The teether is very easy to clean, just hand wash and air dry. It is small enough to throw in the diaper bag and entertaining enough to occupy my son during car rides, doctor's office visits, etc.

Every baby is different and this is never more apparent than when it comes to teething. What soothes one baby's gums makes another baby angry, and a third baby indifferent, and a fourth will find momentary relief that doesn't last longer than a split second... so when reviewing teethers (or reading reviews!) it's important to remember not to harp on how well it worked for any specific child. So, no, my son didn't take to this teether toy. I suppose I could give it one star and say it was a waste of money, but that wouldn't be right. My son refused all teether toys, all relief methods period, except for a wet (not cold or frozen!) washcloth. Yes. Chewing on a wet washcloth all day long was apparently better than pacifiers, frozen fruit, orajel, chew toys, etc., etc. That doesn't mean I'm going to go give his washclothes 5 stars and then proceed to diss every other product I got him as useless! In fact, I don't think I would ever advise a parent to try a wet washcloth as their first line of defense for a tot with sore gums... I can't imagine very many babies find them as useful as my son has. My point? If you're considering this or any other teething products, don't worry about what any reviewer says about how useful the product was (or wasn't) for their specific child as that's useless information.

Here's what you actually need to know.

This teething toy was well made and stayed in fantastic condition through months of play (although no real chewing occurred, it was still put through the ringer). It's bright colors, different textures, and rattling sound made it a fun toy for my son even though he didn't chew on it. If I were to try just one teething toy for my child to test whether or not teethers helped him, I'd pick this one. We went through them all and this one was the closest to helping him of any others - it attracted his attention, he enjoyed playing with it - and this meant that whenever he WAS teething, he actually attempted many times to soothe himself with this toy. Teething toys just didn't help him, but if they had, this would have been our lifesaver. And thus, I don't regret buying it. Teething or not, this toy amused him, introduced a variety of colors and textures to see and feel at a very young age, fit his small hands well and made him happy. What more could you want from a simple infant toy?

The item breaks in to pieces in a month, with sharp hard plastic edge! When I found it was already broken, and small sharp pieces were around my 6 month baby. Cannot imagine if she eat the parts....
I have many Munchkin stuff and they are all very good, but this teether is dangerous!

I saw the rubber-looking sections of these and thought it would be chewy. It's not. For the most part the whole thing is hard plastic. Some of the sections have a different texture or coating (like a thin rubber coating) but my baby didn't care for this at all. It's fairly large, relatively heavy, and frankly it felt more like a toy than a teething ring. I tried over and over again to get her to use this, but she would put it down after a few seconds every time.

In the end, the Vulli rubber teethers were what she liked best. Nom nom nom chewy goodness.

This teether has rubber sides, and smooth plastic sides. Baby can twist it around and have a good time smacking you and himself with it. If you are a nervous wreck that doesn't want to be smacked with a teether, then maybe the knuckleball one would be better for you. But the baby seems to have a good time biting this one and waving it around and smacking himself with it. Baby likes it; it gets on my nerves. But I give it 5 stars because baby likes it.

I thought this was a neat idea until my little guy started manipulating it and collapsed it into the figure 8 and pinched his fingers--hard! Not using it with my youngest.

Because of the bright colors on this items, i though my daughter will love it. On the internet, it looks like the teether was small enough for a 5 and half month old child to hold. But when i got it, i was not impressed at all. It was too thick for her to grab, and will not even fit her month either. So, now it is in the box with the rest of the useless items that will never be used again

My poor teething daughter! I'm constantly looking for new and different teethers for her with hopes of finding one that will work better than the last. This teether was not a hit with her at all. The teether is very large and extremely hard. She likes more of the silicone type teethers so if your baby is the same they probably won't like this one. Also the see-through color parts have what looks like shards of plastic in them to "rattle" but the plastic itself doesn't seem extremely sturdy and I would worry about it cracking and all those little pieces falling out. Overall not a good buy according to my little ones reactions

The outer plastic bag had clearly been taped closed, and the toy itself is dirty! This is horrible, especially for a *teething* toy that is supposed to be new! Very disappointed.
