NogginStik Developmental Light-up Rattle Review

When I found out about the NogginStik Developmental Light-up Rattle I knew that we needed to try one. With a baby that is slightly developmental delayed I just knew that he would love this. When I opened the package it was so cute.

This toy retails for $24.99.

SmartNoggin Toys was launched in November and we are pleased  to introduce our first product, the NogginStik Developmental light-up rattle.  The purpose of the NogginStik and the reason it was created was to help parents begin to develop visual tracking skills (following a brightly colored object with their eyes) in their infants, beginning at birth.  Most parents are not  aware that this is a crucial milestone for children birth to age 12 months.  The NogginStik lights up to help encourage this tracking milestone, which starts to build the eye muscle control that is essential later on for following print on the page. The parent guide walks parents through this activity.  Visual tracking is a baby's VERY FIRST READING LESSON. 
The NogginStik has been compared to Sophie the Giraffe, which is a compliment, but the NogginStik is very different from Sophie.  It is a toy that teaches.  Yes, it is safe to shake and mouth and grasp like any other rattle, but encouraging parents to interact and develop their child's milestones from birth is the mission of SmartNoggin Toys.  I am attaching an evaluation from AblePlay that explains the play qualities of the NogginStik.  AblePlay rates and evaluates toys for children of all abilities, so this evaluation will help in promoting the NogginStik as a perfect first toy for All babies, even those with special needs. 
The NogginStik has been awarded:
* The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval 2013
* The National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) Gold Winner 2012
*Creative Child Magazine Top Toy of The Year Award 2012.

The NogginStik is:
*BPA Free
*PVC Free
*Phthalate Free
*Latex Free
He loved it just like I thought he would. I like to keep it in the diaper bag to entertain hi when we are out. He can really get a grip on it and he loves to shake it like crazy and hear the rattle. He always looks at it with amazement when the face changes colors. This is a huge win for us LOVE it!
