At a glance:

Playgro's fun and colourful Clip Clop Activity Rattle is the perfect toy to keep your baby entertained and to stimulate your baby's senses. With new textures and sounds for your little one to discover with their own hands (and mouth!), they will be shaking, touching and rattling their new toy in no time. 

How did this product make your life easier?

Michala: This product makes my life easier as a Mum as it keeps my 6-month-old entertained for long periods of time, meaning I’m free to do the chores! The variety of elements he can play with are fantastic, especially the different shapes he is able to put in his mouth, this is a godsend at the moment as he is teething. The different textures and bright colours really keep his attention as do the floppy feet and different objects in each foot.

Esther: This is a lovely activity toy for young children with lots of bright colours and lots for my little one to do. She loves moving the large beads and shaking the whole toy hear the rattle. The handle is really easy for my little one to hold and enables her to play with this independently without dropping it too much.

Naanzeen: I like that this product is interesting. My son never seemed to get bored with it. I was initially worried that the feet would be too hard for him and hurt his face. However, they were not too bad. It would benefit from a means of attaching the product to the car seat or pram, like a ring, I managed to address this by adding a teething link.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Lucy: I would definitely recommend this toy. It packs in so many useful features (teething, noises, different textures, colour, mirror etc) into a loveable toy whilst maintaining the overall character and charm. The quality of the materials used is excellent and the use of BPA free material means I am happy for my daughter to chew away at it.

Louise: I would recommend this product because it has lots of grabbing bits for baby to play with and parts to teeth on. I love the size of this toy I love that this item is easy to keep in the changing bag and big enough to keep baby occupied when I’m out and about. It’s well made, bright and colourful and very appealing to little eyes.

Verity: This is a toy of choice to pop in the changing bag for a day out. My initial concern was that it would annoyingly rattle in the bag when out and about but it doesn’t. I have been using this since my baby first started interacting with toys and at that stage, it was light and small enough for her to lift, the green plastic loop also made it easy to grip onto. Now she is older, there are different areas for her to interact with, so it keeps her attention for a good amount of time. She is also teething at the moment and uses the mane as a teether.

Would you choose this product to win?

Nicola: I think this product is amazing and would definitely buy it if I saw it in a shop, it has so many different activities that engage different senses, my baby loved it from the moment he was given it. It’s really eye-catching and easily fits in the changing bag so great for taking out to entertain baby. It’s perfect for any situation.

Louise: Yes I would choose this product, I think the price is appropriate for the item and great value for money. It’s a great go-to toy around the house or for out and about and keeps my baby occupied for a good amount of time. The quality of the item would male me choose it over other items as it is well made and robust.

Lucy: I would choose the clip-clop rattle over other toys and rattles because of its small size, price and because it offers lots of different sensory and interaction for babies. It is a soft cute animal that is simple in design but offers lots for babies to play with. We have found our five-month son can easily hold and grab the clip-clop rattle as every part is small enough for little hands.

What changes would you make to this product?

Michala: We honestly would not change one thing about this product - we love this product! It’s bright, colourful, soft, squishy, makes different sounds, intriguing to a baby and safe to play with. I think the price point is right and I would not hesitate in recommending this product f to a fellow Mummy or friend. I would quite happily purchase this as a gift for a newborn.

Louise: The one thing I would change about this item is adding on a clip so that you could attach it to places such as the car seat or buggy. It is a really handy toy and a good size to have to hand but not having a clip makes it difficult to keep at baby's grasp and It means we often drop it or lose it from time to time!

Nicola: I love this product and would recommend it to anyone with a baby, I would, however, change one thing about it and that’s to include a buggy clip, if you could secure it to a buggy or a car seat handle then that would make it even more perfect in my eyes. I’m always really worried about losing it when we’re out and about.
