Midway through my pregnancy, Aunt Carol and I had discussed what kinds of toys babies liked. She told me that Baby Einstein ones were always amazing. The Baby Einstein Caterpillar Bendy Ball is a simple toy that always seems to be close to William whenever he is awake.
The recommended beginning age for this toy is 3 months. We actually showed this to William right at the three month mark, with little interest, now, however, he’s showing much more.
The bright colors, and rattling sound of the ball inside make it a toy that can hold his interest for quite a long while, such as when getting him ready to go out on a trip.
As all babies do, he loves putting his mouth on it. There are many holes for him to feel around to touch and use to grip to pull it close to him.
We’ve used this versatile toy to try to encourage him to move forward when on his play mat.
Maribel has used it for the same purpose. This is definitely one toy that always gets brought with me for day care drop offs and when we are out and about.
The best part of the toy is the shapes around it. Right now William has no idea it has different shapes or even colors, however, in the future, it will be a great learning toy for him.
