At a glance:

These bright little musical rings will keep your baby entertained, both at home and on-the-go. Our panel of mum testers found them to be fun and durable, withstanding the inevitable tumbles from the highchair. 

What they say:

“Introduce baby to the wonderful world of music with this specially selected set of musical instruments. Chosen especially for young babies, Musical Rings are a set of four chunky, vibrantly coloured rings which each boasts their own individual sound when shaken. The perfect size for little hands, babies will be delighted by the colourful beads, jingles and rattles safely tucked away inside the rings. Gentle movements create fascinating sounds and wonderful visual effects to captivate young children. The Musical Rings are an exciting yet gentle introduction in to the wonderful world of music making. Suitable from just 3 months.”

Tested by mum Lydia Chilvers for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would! They are so easy to transport, and are very sturdy (my daughter enjoys bashing them on the floor!). They easily wipe clean, meaning they’re instantly ready for next use, and the fab circular design makes it easy for young babies to grasp with either one or both of their little hands.

How did the product make your life easier?

The musical rings have been great at keeping my six-month-old amused whilst I make dinner or hang the washing out! They’re a great toy to pop in the changing bag to keep baby amused whilst you are out and about, and are handy to give to baby when you are in the car, as they are easy to hold.

Would you choose this product to win?

I really enjoyed using these rings with my daughter, and think they are a great idea and shape for baby to be able to grasp hold of and use. However, my daughter has other bells and musical instruments that work the same way (they have a handle at the bottom) that are more sensory for her to use, so I would prefer her to play with those as opposed to this particular product.

What changes would you make to the product?

It would be nice if all the rings had a part that makes noise on the outside, as it would help make it a more rounded sensory experience.

Tested by mum Gemma Jones for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

The toy is simple, safe and keeps baby well entertained. They're good to have one or two in the change bag for when away from home, and are as easy as can be for cleaning. The durability is great - ours have been thrown around quite a bit and no cracks have shown as of yet. Such a simple toy is good for baby having independent play, not needing help from anyone else to enjoy them.

How did this product make your life easier?

The musical rings are excellent for little hands that are always moving. The different noises are great for keeping baby interested, it's like four different toys in one! I can keep my son occupied for a long time playing with one at a time or one after another, and really like that they're also good for baby's development too - definitely a plus. 

Would you choose this product to win?

I really like the design of the rings. Nice, bright colours and a variety of noises are great both for fun, and for baby's development. Though they’re not especially innovative, they are very usable and will be suitable for baby for a long time.

What changes would you make to this product?

The only things that I would change would be to make the rings a little bit smaller, so that smaller hands can grasp them easier, and possibly adding a different texture on one of them, just for variety.

Tested my mum Nadia Geddes for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I would definitely recommend these rings! They’re a good product for both mum and baby to play with, hearing the different noises and singing along to the sounds. It’s also easy to handle as their little hands can grip it properly, which makes the shaking all the more exciting. Easy to keep clean, a disinfectant wipe does the job perfectly. Pretty waterproof too, as it sometimes joins him in the bath.

How did this product make your life easier?

It keeps my boy occupied for ages, meaning I can get on with housework, cooking or just general tasks. The colours are vibrant, which definitely attracts him and keeps his attention.

Would you choose this product to win?

It is a great product. Educational, colourful, and durable enough that it can be used for a good few years. It is made out of strong materials, so won't break when it gets chucked around - which tends to happen a lot!

What changes would you make to this product?

I wouldn’t change anything about this product, as it does exactly what it says on the box. It keeps little ones entertained for hours on end. They could, if I really had to nit-pick, possibly add another ring with different features, such as a rattle-like design. Other than that, it serves its purpose perfectly, and is very entertaining.

Tested by mum Leanne Burns for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

It's a great toy.  So, so easy for any baby to use, my little boy loved it and still does! It's easy for them to hold, and it’s good that they can't fit it in their mouth to possibly chew on. The bright colours attract baby’s attention and the fact they all make different sounds is also a great feature. The ring design is fab, making it easy for young babies to use and hold on too.

How did this product make your life easier?

This product makes my life easier because it's so, so easy for any baby to use. You can play along with baby, as there are four rings provided, with each one being different, and the rings are light and compact, making them easy to transport anywhere. I just pop them in my changing bag and bring them with me wherever I go - we even brought ours on holiday!

Would you choose this product to win?

I would definitely buy this over others, as it's great that it will grow with baby and that they can use it when they're older. Its bright colours are attractive, and you can play along with baby at the same time. Being rings, they are great for younger babies to grip and hold, making it less tricky than some others for them to use. It really is very age appropriate.

What changes would you make to this product?

If I had to change one thing, I would make it a bit cheaper, as I think that it's a little on the expensive side, especially for parents on a budget. You can purchase other musical toys on the market for a lot less, so it might put people off, which would be a real shame as it's absolutely excellent, and my little one loves it.

Tested by mum Olga Golovina for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018:

Would you recommend this to other mums?

I think it's a different toy to others currently on the market. Some other musical toys are a bit tricky for children to hold and play with, but these musical rings are a very good size for small hands. I would recommend it to my fellow mums for this reason, and because it’s good value for money, so wouldn't break the bank.

How did this product make your life easier?

My baby loved the music rings, and I soon found that I could happily leave him playing with them while I get on with things. I also like the fact that they are all so different, and make for great sensory toys. Once my baby was bored with one of them, he could move onto the next. He obviously preferred the loudest one!

Would you choose this product to win?

Since my baby boy loves noisy toys I would definitely choose the music rings as a toy for him. You get a nice selection of different noises from the rings, so the price seems fair enough. I also appreciate how different they are from other toys on the market, with them definitely standing out due to their colours, which are lovely, vibrant and bright.

What changes would you make to this product?

It might be a nice idea to have the rings made out of wood. I believe wooden toys are becoming more and more fashionable and they always make a thoughtful present too. They feel more organic, and I think it would potentially help them appeal to a wider range of buyers.
