Me, my husband and our baby, we all love this toy. I bought it when my son was 3m old. Now he's 8 and the monkey is still our favorite toy. It's easy to hold for a baby's tiny hand. Soft, but not too hairy. When my boy was small, I used to fix it to the playing mat, so that the monkey was hanging in the air. My son is all happy when he sees the monkey (it has a big smile!). I like it for one particular reason. When my son is sitting on the high chair, he throws toys on the floor. I hold the monkey by one ring, so the toy stays on the table and I don't need to pick it up all the time. There're so many useless toys in this world. This one is just excellent!
