To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I think this item is a little overpriced at 5.99. Considering there are no electronics and in it and it's only a simply ball in a outer plastic shell it is a little pricey. I think 3.99 is more like it. The item is really no better than a simple rattle. The ball doesn't roll much as it has an uneven shape. It is rather big but it is a simple design. Don't expect anything groundbreaking! Given all the good reviews I was sort of expecting something amazing.
There are screws around the inner part of the yellow plastic. It does seem strange in some ways to have them there but I also just check another toy I bought 'leapfrog talking pup' and it also has several screws on the back which are no less accessible than the Einstein ball. People who say that the screws indicate the item is Chinese imitation are incorrect as this is a genuine product, screws and all.
The product is ok but I don't think all the excellent reviews, in my opinion are justified.
My 4 month old loves this and I like that she has something different to a rattle/teddy/comforter to play with. She's fascinated by this. Makes a sound due to the ball inside and brightly coloured and easy for her to grip and hold and according to her try to eat. Only thing which I'm cautious of and not sure if will be a problem at all is the gaps right close to the main body each side is attached to as a lot smaller so could baby catch fingers possibly? So I always supervise her with this...and also the screws they seem secure but if I got them wet would they degrade? When I clean the toy? Other than that it's now my favourite toy for her.
This is a nice toy and is easily grabbed by baby but I'm not sure where the bendy part comes in. The caterpiller is hard plastic and doesn't move so you are looking at a ball with a bell inside a small ball decorated with a caterpiller. The ball is held together with screws and so could be a problem if there was a screw which hadn't been finished properly. I was a little disappointed as I expected more. It is brightly coloured to attact baby's attention but I'm afraid my 5 month old grandson very quickly lost interest and only played with it for a few seconds before throwing it away. Shame I expected more. I've found that the Manhatten Toy Winkel Colour Burst Teether which I also bought from Amazon is a far better toy and is grabbed straight away by my grandson who plays with it for quite a while. This toy needs to be looked at and improved.
My baby loves this ball, hes 7months and 2 weeks old and it's been very easy for him to hold and play with sitting up or laying down he has great control the space between make it super easy for small hands to use effectively! It's very colourful and he loves the sound of the small ball inside. I haven't yet tried to clean it thoroughly, but I use milton wipes which is easy enough. I assume it would be easy to clean if you put in a small bowl with a milton tablet for few minutes I assume would be totally fine. Nice ball.
Ok, so I bought this for my 8 mths old nephew thinking this will be perfect to chew on etc. Well, I have to say that this is not sovery bendy at all ! - I don't recall any age recommendation but I am sure that he will not be able to bend it - not Superman yet. So I don't feel this is a bendy toy at all - although it bends when I bend it - but I'm a grown adult! On the other hand, yes it is colourful, makes some noise, but Im afraid it is not for an 8mths old to bend it like Beckham !
My baby enjoys playing with this ball. It isn't too difficult to clean. I was disappointed by the balls appearance. There are several paint smudges. It looks like it was painted in a hurry or something. That's not a big deal for us, but I wouldn't give this as a present for that reason.
Until he annihilated it the parrot thought this was great, really interested in how it worked/broke. Hung it from the top of his cage and once he was positive it wasnt a parrot killing device he got stuck in and it was in pieces in about 3 days, not bad... I'll get him another one at some point.
My 4 month old loves this ball. It's great dexterity practice for his little fingers and the ball with a bell inside grabs his attention. It's especially fun for him to pick up and throw down which has the added benefit of something we can play with together at this age. There are some visible screws on the inside but they haven't bothered him and he even sticks his tongue in the holes sometimes trying to teeth on this (glad its easy to clean).
