I recently received this as a gift and just love this toy. So does Hannah. It bends and twists and with different textures it sort of fulfills a bunch of purposes in one toy. I can also hook it onto the "links" pictured below when we go out to prevent it from hitting the floor!
I'm a recent convert to these! Not sure if they existed when the boys were little, but man do I love them now. You put a piece of fresh fruit or vegetable or any other item you like inside, and baby can suck on them without a choking hazard. Brilliant!
I am a HUGE fan of these pacifier holders. They make a great toy, and with Abigail, we never ONCE lost her darn pacifier. In addition, in the middle of the night, it's much easier for baby and parents to find the missing pacifier when it is attached to something as big and familiar as the bunny. I've been buying these in bulk and giving them as gifts in pink, blue, or yellow.
There are a gazillion variations on these toy. It doesn't matter which one you get. What I like about this toy is that when they are little, they can just shut the toys' lids. However, as they grow, they can learn how to open each individual one.

What I love about this toy is that when the child is little, the rings are a perfect thing to play with. And as they can sit up and grab things better, they can start stacking them on and playing with them. Here's a video of Abigail playing with this classic toy. (You'll also see the pop toy above in this video too.)
I am a huge fan of these connectors! I use them to connect to each other and then I'll put a pacifier on the end of it and a toy on the other. They are especially good when we go out because you can connect them to a stroller or car seat and prevent them from hitting the floor ever five seconds.
