Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

There are so many different features of this toy, which is why I think my son likes it so much. Technically, I think the Bead Buddy Giraffe is a rattle. It has beads in the giraffe’s tummy that rattle and make noise when you shake him. It’s a nice, gentle rattle sound that’s loud enough to keep my son’s attention but not so loud that I can’t have a conversation with my older son while this toy is being played with. Behind the rattle beads is a mirror. My baby loves looking at himself in it.
Perfect in size for the tiny hands of your kids.
The rattling giraffe has multiple textures, all designed to awaken a child’s curiosity and senses. With click-clack rings around his neck and rattling balls in his bell, he’s sure to keep your baby busy.
We liked how the materials used are silky and soft. They encourage kids to touch the toy and develop their tactile senses. Moreover, there are clock clack rings that have a textured design to help them improve their texture recognition abilities.
Perfect size for tiny grabbing hands.
Because of it's decent size,it ie easy to hold for little kids.
My son loves the click, clack spinning handle and the rattle feature as well as the cute design of the toy.
It has loads of fun textures, sounds and activities for babies to explore and enjoy. It’s perfectly sized for babies to hold and grasp, too. Babies will really enjoy the range of fabrics to explore, as well as the interesting patterns on them.
