The busy basics busy beads toy is a fun little toy for 6-12 month old babies to enjoy. It is full of bright colors and fun shapes, and helps little fingers maneuver, spin and squeeze little toys on the handheld. The overall size is perfect, it is bigger than my son's head, so it gets and keeps his attention. I find that his attention is best with toys that he can use his fingers with-and this one fits that description. My main dislike of this toy would be the lack of variety it has for play. Once your Little one gets walking/older than a year, I don't see this being very interesting to them-it does not talk or make any type of noise to continue to stimulate their minds or creativity. Overall though-a fun toy for any little babies or under 1 year olds you may know.
