Disadvantages: Noise can be annoying
I went to have some photos took at Pixi foto situated in Mothercare a month or so back and also situated in Mothercare is Early Learning Centre, I had to wait 20 minutes to view the photos and so was having a look around the store and came across this. I had picked it up to see what it actually was and my daughter decided she really liked it and there was no way I was getting away with putting it back on the shelf.
The rainmaker cost me £8 which I don't think was too bad for a pretty durable toy that my daughter does enjoy playing with, the toy is recommended for ages 6 months and up but my daughter is 18 months old and she loves it.
The rainmaker is a see through plastic cylindrical tube of about 12 inches long and has a red end and a green end both of which have the logo for ELC imprinted on them. In the tube there are 3 sections and each has little shelves and loads of little colourful beads, there are little holes on each of the shelves and therefore when you turn up upside down the beads flow through the holes making a noise which is supposed to sound like rain, I think it sounds like rain hitting a flat roof like a portacabin.
The rainmaker is easy to use and my daughter worked our very quickly how to get it to make a noise which she thinks is hilarious especially when I shout at her that she is noisy and she runs away with it making a racket! My elder daughter thinks it's good fun aswell and she likes to name all the colours inside the tube even though she has known her colour for about 2 years now.
Early learning centre claim that this toy will help with your childs hand eye coordination and stimulates senses which I would say is correct. This is a very simple toy which provides hours of fun and my children both love playing with, I would recommend this toy for anyone with young children.
