As a high need baby, Livi is difficult to entertain, she has a hard time playing by herself, and usually does not care much for toys. But for her sake, and for our own sanity, we keep trying, always on the hunt for THE miracle toy that will keep her occupied for a few minutes.
While it is difficult to find something of interest to her, there are a few toys she likes. One of them is the Stacker by Green Toys.
Green Toys is a US company. All their toys are made from recycled milk containers. A great idea and good for the environment, too. All of their toys are BPA, PVC, and phthalate free, a must for baby and toddler toys in my opinion.*
Aside from the fact that the Stacker is made from BPA free plastic, there are a few other things I like.
I also like that there is no center post, so there is no danger of poking out baby’s eyes. The pieces are easy to clean and can also be used in the bathtub.
All in all, I like the quality and safety of the toy. We have been using it for well over 6 months now and Livi is still playing with it and finding new ways to enjoy it. Considering all the stacking toys out there, this is still the one I like the best.
The only thing I can think of is that the pieces might collect dust or dirt on the inside depending on how and where they are used. But that is easily fixed with a quick rinse under water.
Recommended for ages 6 months and up.
I have seen it sold on amazon.com and in stores at Buy Buy Baby, and Whole Foods.
Hit Or Miss:
Definitely a hit all around.
