I received the Lamaze Gardenbug Foot Finder and Wrist Rattle Set as a baby shower gift. It seemed different than just a plain old rattle and I wondered if the baby would like it. Well, my six month old not only loves it but spends a lot of him playtime grabbing at his toes because of this toy.
This toy can be used from birth. There are two different toys that come with this toy. The Gardenbug Foot Finder is actually a pair of black and white striped socks with either a Ladybug or Butterfly rattle attached to the top of the foot. It is so simple to use because you just slide them on your baby's feet like socks! You can then find a safe place to lay your baby on it's back and watch him/her try to grab at the socks and hear the rattle make noise when they kick their feet.
The second part of this toy is a pair of wrist rattles. They attach around the baby's wrist with a velcro strap and have either a Bee or a Beetle on them. They come in bright colors and patterns - definetly eye catching for your baby!
The sturdiness of the attached rattles, soft feel of the socks and wrist straps shows that Lamaze truly prides themselves on quality. All for a reasonable price and hours of entertainment for your baby.
