HABA 75th Anniversary Review: Rattling Figure

This is the first of three HABA reviews this week as part of their 75th Anniversary activity.

First up is this Rattling Figure. This would make a great little rattle for any young child. Its suitable from age 10 months because its made from wood and the points on the collar of the clown are a little sharp. Without much effort you can get the clown figure shaking every which way. He’s brightly coloured with non-toxic paint – perfect if your little one starts to suck or chew on him – and is a great little friend for your child who’ll also stimulate their senses.

Whilst Little Man is too old for this toy at nearly two and a half he’s always attracted to toys that move, make noise or are brightly coloured, so he was a big fan of this as it did all three. Its perfectly sized for little hands and very easy to hold on too, even when you’re rattling it about.
