This review is from: Haba Magica Clutching toy (Toy)
I bought this for my six month old son. The balls are just the right size for him to pick up in his little hands, which help to build his clutching and grasping motor skills. He will crawl/worm his way to the toy, pick it up, and roll onto his back holding it to study it. The colors are bright and appealing, and the toy itself seems well made. The balls move about on the cord, so they aren't fixed into one particular shape. I think this adds interest for the baby, since he is able to manipulate the shape a bit. If you're looking for bells and whistles, this isn't the toy for you; however, if you're looking for a toy to cultivate your baby's imagination, this is a good one with which to start. I would give it 5 stars overall, but I found a cheaper version of this toy (with more balls) made by a different company shortly after I purchased this one.

What brand or key word would lead me to the alternate toy with more balls?

Some Haba toys are made in China. Just like everyone else, they outsource. They are not particularly transparent about it - not on their website, but on some toys it says made in China in tiny print on the box.

I looked up this toy on another website and it says made in Germany from stains, not paints. I think that is certainly a relevant bit of information. So no way for baby to eat paint. I looked up the Manhattan Toys product and it says non-toxic finish, but not whether it is stained or painted. ? I think I'll stick with the German made product in any case. But I'll keep an eye out on the Haba toys as to where they are made. Thx!

What was the other product you found that had more balls?

Haba is a good German brand made of solid wood that is stained and safe for a baby to put in his mouth. My aunt lives in Germany and swears by this company. My 4 month old baby loves to look and grasp this toy which is great for those fine motor skills. Unfortunately I am buying a new one because my dog apparently liked this toy too.
