I bought this for my son when he was nearly a month old simply because I saw a friend had bought these for her daughter. I thought these would be great for him as a way of finding his feet and hands my son however could not have been more uninterested in these. I would put them I. And shake them on his wrist and he would look at me like I'm a mad woman. When he got to around 10 weeks his intrest in things around him had grown and all he wanted to do with these was stuck them in his mouth. But for ten pound I wanted more than just a toy for him to suck on. For anyone out there looking to buy this for a baby I would say try and find just the wrist rattles as the sock rattles in this set were not as good as I thought they would be. The sock are quite big and flat ( I think so they would also fit bigger babies ) so they woul never stay on his feet for longer than one minute. My son is nearly four months now and I have lost both socks and one of the wrist rattles. All my son wants to do right now is put things in his mouth and is not interested in having a rattle on his wrist. When I bought these I think I paid around 11 pound for them and for me I do not think they are worth that.
Babies have a long period where.. well. They don't really seem to DO an awful lot. They wiggle a bit, and they're very cuddly but they don't really do much interesting. They can't grasp at things even until their hand-eye co-ordination reaches a certain point, which means their toy interaction is limited.
This tries to be ready for babies earlier than that. The wrist rattles velcro around the wrists, the socks go on the feet and they're all brightly coloured and rattle and let the babies know their wriggles are doing something. At least, that's the theory.
I bought this for three reasons: they looked cute, Tesco had them reduced to under a fiver and I wanted my two month old baby to do something interesting. On the first two, it was a success. Kiddo looked fairly adorable with them on. However, that was about as far as it went. The rattle was very faint - I think maybe they didn't want to scare the baby but I'm not sure he even heard them. He certainly never seemed to react to having them on. I would wonder if I put them on too early but he's four months old now and can cope with regular rattles. This seems to be for a developmental stage he missed - one where he was interested in rattles but couldn't grasp them. Avoid, unless you're really desperate for cute photos.
