1.0 out of 5 stars just your typical garish toxic plastic from China, March 9, 2010

This review is from: Tiny Love Musical Nature Stroll Toy Bar (Baby Product)
I'm giving the star to the idea of attaching this toy to multiple baby gear. That can be useful, however I cannot say that the toy was attached well in any of the items we tried (high chair, car seat, swing). It never got detached, but when baby pulled any of the toys the arch would bend toward his face. I also think it is overstimulatig. Our sweet boy who rarely cries got so frustrated with this toy! The most he could take of this was 10 min, then he'd start batting angrily at the toys and cry in frustration. He was able to spin the propeller- not a problem- but he caught his fingers in the spinning blades a few times and wasn't happy about it.

The musical box has 3 tunes - about 3 seconds each. The first week only one of them would play (pop goes the weasel) and I got so sick of it. I wrote to Tiny Love about the problem and they never replied. Now for some reason, I get to hear the other two tunes, but the "weasel" is the one that we hear most of the time.

This toy made me forever switch away from cheap Chinese imports to quality toys from Haba, Selecta, and the like. At least they don't make me cringe every time baby puts them in their mouth, since safety standards are much stricter in Europe, and also because they use natural materials (e.g. wooden toys stained not painted, and finished with natural beeswax). Amazon carries quite a few of these toys for very reasonable prices. They are also more educational because they are simpler so allow the baby to use his imagination in using them. Toys with sounds and lights are no more educational than a TV.

I like Plan Toys, Guidecraft, Maple Landmark, and Tag Toys (this last one being the best). Melissa and Doug are pseudo-green toys - even though wooden, they are all made in China and lack quality. Also try Etsy - enormous collection of wooden or other natural material toys hand made in the US. These items can be more reasonable pricewise.
