I bought this for my 4 1/2 month old because she seemed to concentrate on part of her Baby Einstein Musical Motion Activity Jumper, Blue that was a similar activity (moving the blue and yellow musical notes on the purple bar if you have it at home). The indications were for 1 year +, so I figured worst case scenario we would just put it away if she wasn't ready for it yet. Boy, am I glad we got the bead maze early! At 4 1/2 months, she would stick her tongue out while she focused on moving the beads. It took her a couple weeks before she could shift them from one side to the other, but she definitely hasn't mastered it yet (we've had it for 6 weeks) which makes me feel like this toy will maintain her interest for a while. The paint doesn't seem like it would chip, despite her scratching at it with her razor-like fingernails and the beads constantly banging against the wires. The colors are vibrant, and it's lightweight. It's the perfect size to attach to her Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Booster Seat - Blue/Green/Gray before or after meals, or when she's joining us at the dinner table.

I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because of the suction cups... they are great 90% of the time, but it sometimes they don't stick where I want (the plastic tray of the booster) and I can't get it off of the surface where I don't want it (the dining table)! Not a big deal, and I don't think it can be improved, but it is noticeable. Would still recommend it and getting it earlier than later!

Addendum 2/19/12: Daughter is now 10 1/2 months old.

My baby loves this bead maze! She is 7 months now, and she started playing with it about 2 months ago when she could sit up in a high chair. It is just barely too big to fit on our smaller portable booster chair tray, but it's perfect for her regular high chair. And wow, she plays with this thing so much! It keeps her occupied while I'm preparing her food, and then I give it back to her after she finishes eating and starts to get fussy. She will calm down immediately and be mesmerized by the beads. And I'm impressed at how fast she learned how to play with them, so it makes me feel like she really is learning skills at a young age. I'm impressed with the suction cups, too. When she pulls on the maze, it lifts the entire high chair tray liner instead of losing suction. This is probably my baby's favorite toy, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

My daughter is 6 1/2 months old and she loves playing with toys with little beads to push, so I got her this Melissa & Doug toy even though the recommended age on it is 1 year + (see customer picture, above). She really loves it. I wouldn't really let her play with it without supervision, though, since it is very easy for her to pull it down onto herself. She already is great at pushing the beads around, and especially loves playing with the yellow star. The quality of the toy is excellent -- reminds me of old fashioned toys before everything was made of plastic. This can actually hold her attention for more than a few minutes! I also like that it has the option of using the suction cups so as she gets older, we can use it on her high chair or while out. The base is heavy, but is easily tipped. I think that is the reason for the age suggestion. All-in-all, I think this is a great purchase (especially for the value!) and will be a fun toy for her for a while.

This toy is my secret weapon for dining out with baby. We take this maze with us when we go out for dinner, stick it on the table top and our 8 month old entertains himself with it the whole time! A must have for your going-out diaper bag!

My first time writing a review on a product. Felt I have a responsibility to all the parents out there to encourage them not to purchase this product due to the paint chipping off the wooden square pieces (blue in particular). We've had this for just about a month and our baby has barely begun playing with it. We are throwing it in the trash. Save your money.

This toy does an excellent job of "holding " her bottle so that I can have my hands free to cook.

I bought this toy originally thinking I would leave it at out-of-town grandma's. However, it was small enough that I decided to bring it home. It has suction cups on the bottom, which allow you to use it on a high chair or other place. My 8 month old likes to spin the pieces and is growing more interested in moving them around. Very well made. Would highly recommend. Only reason it's 4 stars instead of 5 is b/c it's a liked toy, but not a loved toy.

We got this toy for our 9 month old since he loves the bead mazes. It is small and portable, which is nice for traveling. The wood is smooth with no rough edges. The only minor inconvenience is that the suction cups don't work that well. Our 9 month old and 3 year old love this toy.
