      Disadvantages

      Soft rattle with limited play value. Will be amusing when baby becomes a schoolboy.

      Giggling Zebra is one in a range of stick toys produced and sold by Marks and Spencer's. All of the toys are a soft variation of a rattle, feature a head atop a padded 'stick' and make some sort of noise. I received giggling zebra as a gift when Little Loz was born but the normal retail price is £6.

      Giggling zebra is the most eye catching of the stick designs. As he is a zebra, he comes in black and white stripes. This, and his large face with clear eyes and smiling mouth, should make him appealing to young babies as the contrasting colours are easy to see and the face should be easily recognised. As his name suggests he makes what is described as, a 'giggling' sound.

      From birth my baby showed no interest in either the sight or sound of this toy. Daddy however, found the sound hilarious. It may raise a giggle but it certainly doesn't sound like a giggle. It's more like a whoopie cushion. Hence the school boy humour. I've left zebra for three months and reintroduced him but there is still no interest from Little Loz. He will turn to look where the sound is coming from but his face doesn't light up as it does with other toys. He is completely ambivalent about this one. Little Loz has started to grab and hold but I've noticed that the stick is too fat for him to grasp even if he wanted to.

      Giggling zebra is a basic toy. Given a choice I would select any one of the Lamaze Play and Grow range over this. However, he does tick some of the boxes in terms of the theory of what should appeal to a baby. Babies are fickle creatures and I'm sure other 3 month olds will love this. Perhaps little Loz will take to zebra further down the line... even if we have to wait until he is a school boy.
