Babies will go gaga for this Playtime Pal and it's multi-sensory features. This baby toy will make use of all their senses, with bright colors, multiple different textures and chimes. Fabric textures include soft linen, minky dots, and cotton knit. This soft toy is the perfect size for baby to cuddle with, and also easily hangs from their car seat or stroller to keep them occupied. Elephant is hold BPA-Free teether and peek-a-boo mirror. Suggested age: 0 months +.
Most toys with noise are annoying after some time but this one sounds like a chime and it's quite a pleasant sound. The colors and textures interest my baby and he loves when I clip it on his car seat. He hasn't used the teethed yet but I am sure it will be a hit also.
I have received this item from Infantino to facilitate my review. There is so much to do with this toy...I can see it being great for so many stages of my little boy's development. The part that I like best is all of the different textures. Each part of the balloon is not just a different color for little ones to look at but also a different texture for them to touch. And the two different rattles are great for catching attention. I only gave it four stars because it is pretty large. Finding a place to hang it without it taking over is a little difficult. Right now, I like just holding it over my 2 month old for him to explore.
I have received this item from Infantino to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own. This toy will be fun for a while. It's not tiny so it'll be a while before it's small in comparison to my son. It's overall a really cute design (an elephant with a hot air balloon? Too cute.) It has a variety of textures for sensory purposes, the teething ring will be great when he's bigger, and the mirror is a big hit already for a baby who loves to look at "other" babies. I wish it was a bit more high contrast, as tiny babies really like that, but the color scheme as is would be more appealing to adults than a high contrast one. We'll have fun with this one for quite a while.
My 4 month old enjoys playing with this. He especially likes all of the tags. The teething ring is soft, but durable. I love the design and all of the different fabrics used. It's very creative. I have received this item from Infantino to facilitate my review.
