I really rate HABA clutching toys, they are bright and colourful, well made, and the babies seem to love them. My son, niece and nephew have played with different ones from this range. They start learning to grasp objects from about 3 months, and these are perfect for them to practice doing just that. Also, the bright colours appeal to their eyes and the wood clatters like a rattle, thereby stimulating touch, sight and hearing. Most importantly, they just love playing with them. I would highly recommend.
