I got this activity spiral from Kiddicare for £16. I ordered it online, as I had been looking for one of these for my baby son but I didn't like any of the boys ones out in places like mama and papas etc. They aren't bright enough, and this one caught my eye as it is nice soft pastel colours, and looks really nice and bright.
This activity spiral is a soft toy which is shaped like a snake. You can coil it around things such as your pram, car seat, or cot to keep your baby amused. My pram and car seat is black, so this adds a nice bit of colour to it. The colours of this activity spiral, pastel blues, greens and yellows, means it can be given to a boy or a girl.
There are three toys that dangle from this activity spiral. There is a butterfly, which is colourful, with red, purple, orange and green on it. Each wing has a small baby mirror on them, and the wings crinkle when touched too. My baby loves the crinkling sound, and these wings are great for him to chew on, there always in his mouth! The butterfly also squeaks if you press it's body, although not very loudly, you can't hear it very well and it's quite hard to press. It also has a colourful snail which has bells in it which rattle when shaken, these are not too loud, but make a nice noise for a baby to enjoy. There is also a plastic ring for the baby to hold, which has a colourful caterpillar covering one side of it, and my baby grasps this ring and keeps hold of it really well.
I don't often put this on my pram or car seat as if its no the handle bars of my pram, it just gets in the way and annoys me! On the car seat handle, because of the toys that dangle down so far, you can't see your baby! Also your baby can't see anything whilst out and about, and my baby loves looking around whilst we are out, so I usually put this on the bars of my activity mat at home, so it dangles down above him, or I just give it to him and he loves touching and pulling it!
Its actually really lightweight and my baby has no problems holding this, it is nice and soft and will definitely not hurt your baby if they were to hit themselves with it waving it about. The toy is like a teddy material, but the snake part is strong and stays in a spiral shape even when not wrapped around anything.
I find it a bit difficult sometimes to wrap this around anything such as the bars on the cot, as the toys do get a bit tangled up and it's not the easiest to wrap around! However I am pleased with this toy, my baby seems to like it, and this has actually been through the wash as my son was sick all over it, and it came out perfectly good as new, so it's easy to clean. I would definitely purchase again and recommend it to others!
