This is one of baby girl’s favorite toys right now. I am a huge fan because there is so many amazing features. As you can see above, it’s in the shape of a horse. Two of its feet are hard textured teething toys, while the other 2 feet are soft and make the crinkle sound. The horse’s mane and tail are textured corduroy material. The nose of the horse has a squeaker inside. Every time that I push it baby girl just laughs. There is also a textured ring on the front of the book, great for teething, but it also has a Velcro strap attached to it so you can keep the book closed. The words on the outside “Flip -n- Fun” are also raised embroidery which provides yet another great texture for baby girl to learn about.
If you open the book up there is a full 6 page story. Two of the pages make the crinkle sound, while the outside two pages of the book are a soft plush material. The story inside is very simple, but highlight words that rhyme on each page along with a graphic. It’s the perfect first story book.
Nuby put a ton of thought into this awesome toy. All the different textures and sounds provide stimulation to a learning baby as well as the hard teething surfaces to help with the pain babies face when their gums are sore and/or swollen.
Like I said earlier, this is one of the best toys on the market for baby girl’s age right now. I love how she chews on the hard teething surface of the horse’s feet, but at the same time she will squeeze together the plush part of the book. It’s great knowing that a toy like this makes her so happy. She even falls asleep while holding it!
