Multi-sensory cloth book for younger babies
on December 8, 2013
Bought this for our daughter when she was 4 months old. At the time, she loved the crinkly sounds the front and back pages make. I tried to get her to feel the different textures on each page (normal cloth, smooth satiny, textured felt etc.), but she really just preferred to chew and suck on corners of the book and ribbon material for the sun rays. Since this is a wordless cloth book, you can make up your own story as you flip the 4 flaps, including covers, that show different animals with scenery (every second page is a blow-up pic of what you see on the previous page, eg. blue bird on the moose, fish in the river, star in the sky). There's a squeak in the blue bird and a rattle in the fish. It also comes with a big round clip for attaching to a stroller or car seat. I sometimes hook it around the cot slat, to prevent it from being flung out by our baby. It is a well-constructed book in terms of durability and is washable. I took a star off because our daughter is now 13 months old and has barely shown any interest in the cloth book in the last 3 months. She definitely likes real books a lot more. While it is not likely a toy that will grow with your child, it is still good value for the purpose it served.
