Tug & Play Knot Block by Lamaze
This multi-sensory rattle is great for infants and toddlers who like to reach and pull at toys. There are three fabric tubes knotted and threaded together through a rigid clear plastic cube that children can explore. Each fabric tube comes out of a different shaped hole (e.g., heart, circle, square) and has either a teething toy or sensory toy at the free end. The toy is easy to suspend on either a crib or a stroller for maximum play opportunities. Strengths: This toy is easy to hold and chew, so it's an ideal teething toy. Also it has engaging sounds and textures that will keep baby interested for a long time. Weaknesses: None that have been discovered by any of the children I work with. Price: $13-$15. Where to Buy: The Tug & Play Knot Block is available through the Lamaze toy website (http://www.learningcurve.com/), Growing Tree Toys (http://www.growingtreetoys.com/), or at specialty toy shops that carry the Lamaze line.
