This Tinkle Crinkle ball certainly got baby’s attention and held it as she locked in on the bunny face, turning to examine it. As the ball rolls, two more characters are revealed, a colorful caterpillar and fuzzy mouse. Little ribbon tags provide the “grass” for the mouse to move through as well as whiskers on the bunny’s face. The caterpillar’s 3D antennae and bunny’s ears are prefect for grabbing and tasting while listening to the crinkle of the ears and chimes inside the ball. All in all, a great baby toy has lots for baby to explore over several sensory modes, feeling, seeing, hearing and tasting, while giving parents and caregivers plenty to narrate while their baby investigates, building language with descriptive input. “Feel bunny’s soft, white ears with blue dots and her orange, pink and yellow little ribbon whiskers, ” or “The blue fuzzy mouse has a red dot on the end of his nose.” The ball is classic GUND soft premium plush that mom appreciated as her baby touched it to her face and nibbled on the bunny ear. This ball is a beautiful addition to baby’s smart play activities to build language.
