I bought this for my baby boy before he was born just because I thought it looked fun and be a toy that daddy would love to play with too. It has proven a success with my baby who is now 3 months old. Very soft, washable, baby can hold the ball already by grabbing its taggies...a bit pricey but I think we will get lots of use out of it.
I have been singing and reading this to my 4 month old baby boy and he loves it. He likes this one more than the Old Macdonald...I don't know whether is the actual book or the song that he loves but the combination surely keeps him entertained.
