This review if for this simple yet very lovely rattle that is suitable for babies from 3 months. You can buy this for £6 from the Early Learning Centre. It was bought as a gift for my son when he was a few months old.
As you can see from the picture above, we have a small, very soft mouse called Nibbles, with a cute smiley face and a little knotted tail. This is lovely to the touch as it is so soft and plush, and the mouse is pure white in colour. On Nibbles' ears and the 'soles' of his paws there is a subtle vintage style floral design. This has a touch of pink to it, which may make it seem more aimed at baby girls, but I can't say that this is something that has bothered me or deterred me from letting my little boy play with the toy!
The hands and feet of Nibbles are stitched together to create a loop - inside which are four small, brightly coloured balls that of course create a rattling sound when the toy is shaken.
Simple yet cute
The design of this toy is very simple, yet it is lovely to look at. It is very cute, and it is also pleasant for babies to play with as the mouse is so soft. It is small in size so fits in baby's hand nicely. I would say, however, that this is not something that is going to hold a baby's attention for long periods - instead I think this is more of a visual treat than anything. If you just wanted a basic rattle for your baby, then I would say you could find something cheaper - however if you are after a rattle that looks appealing too then this is a good choice. My little boy will pick this up and shake it for a bit, before discarding it and moving on to something else, as he does with all his little toys at the moment! I don't think this will ever be something that is going to grab his attention for a long time, but it will look nice on his shelf!
Overall this is a lovely looking toy and it is nicely designed. It looks really cute and would make a lovely gift for a new baby. However I think it is more of an item to look at than play with, so I will give Nibbles four stars.
