ELC Activity Triangle
Advantages: There's lots to do
Disadvantages: It's quite big, so best for bigger babies, who may not be wanting to sit still anymore.
I bought this for my baby when I was helping at the NCT sale, and needed something to keep him busy. By the time I got to the end of the sale, I was a bit glazed over after looking at all the stuff, so I just grabbed something that looked vaguely appropriate and made a noise when I picked it up. I'm glad I did!
This toy is quite expensive new, but easy to pick up second hand, and as it's plastic, easy to clean and sterilise. Mine cost £1.50 second hand.
My son was seven months old when I bought it, and he was vaguely interested, but it mostly got interesting at about ten months. I think this would make an excellent first birthday present, because it's quite big, baby needs to be able to pick it up really.
Each end is an equilateral triangle, about 6 inches along the side, and the sides are squares. The framework is tubes with little beads, like a rainmaker, and that's what my son finds attractive about this toy. Each of the faces has a different activity, and that's what holds his attention. The variety is enough that lots of different children would find it interesting, whether they prefer beading (as my son) or sliding objects , along a track, spinning things or just looking at themselves in the mirror.
All the items do what they're meant to, move easily but don't slide around, so it's fun to play and doesn't get frustrating. All in all, a good toy which my son enjoys playing with.
Summary: An excellent toy with good play value
