This is one of those toys that as an adult you don't quite see the appeal, it's a mirror in a foam frame that's shaped like a crab, not much to it really. However, if you're 8 months old there are just so many different things you can do with it. You can look at it, you can look at yourself reflected in it, you can grab it by one of the many nice sticky outy bits, you can wave it about, you can hit stuff with it, you can hide behind it, and best of all you can chew it!
I bought it out of desperation when my baby went through a phase of screaming all the time she was in the bath and I'd say it has been a contributing factor in getting her to enjoy bath time again, it's definitely a favourite toy of hers. Usually she sits happily with it all through bath time, drying time and massage time, and the last few times I've bathed her she's continued to hang onto it into the bedroom making it a bit difficult getting her into her babygrow, and only finally relinquished it when it's been replaced by the only thing that could possibly be better, bedtime milk!
Well worth the money, I expect I shall be buying this for friends babies in future.
