Tomy Happy Stack
Advantages: Durability, great learning
I had been looking for stacking rings for a while for my daughter, and had been eyeing out some on amazon, although they were quite expensive. So, I was very pleased when my mum picked some stacking rings up for me at a car boot sale recently for £1, since she knew I was looking for some for my little girl.
Despite me looking at rings on amazon, this Tomy Happy Stack rings were not ones that I had noticed, which I am surprised at, as they are very different from the usual rings, in that you can stack them two ways, upwards and downwards, as there isn't actually a pole for the rings to go onto, instead they stack within each other, due to their shape. Each ring has a half ball in the middle, with a happy face on it. Underneath is a hole that allows the ball shaped part of another ring to fit inside. So, they can be stacked from smallest to largest and vice versa.
There are five stacking rings in this set, all brightly coloured. They are just the right size for a little one to hold in their hands, and in my daughter's case - fit in her mouth. The rings sit on a purple base which is designed to be wobbly, and my daughter will sometimes knock all the rings off just to get at the base. Once all the rings are taken off, you will find a ball that can sit in the hollow of the base, and can be rattled and played with as a separate toy.
This toy has been designed for babies from 6 months old and my daughter was just 7 months when she got this. Naturally at her age she isn't able to stack the rings herself, but she enjoys watching me or my husband stack them, and very often likes to reach for the rings in the midst of me stacking them. She also likes to knock down the rings when there are only a few stacked up, particulary when they are in stacked with the largest on the top.
I think this toy will have durability as my daughter grows. At the moment, she enjoys the colours, knocking the rings down, and playing with the ball, but as she grows I am looking forward to her being able to stack them herself both ways, given her additional learning opportunities. I am so glad my Mum picked these up for my daughter, even better when they are only a £1, but even at £8 which is what they are priced at on amazon, I would purchase these, as I think they are worth the money.
Summary: A great stacking toy
