we love simple, wooden toys in our home, especially ones that double as "art". This toy is no exception! It's obviously high quality, has vibrant and beautiful colours, and smells great (weird, I know, but much better than plastic!). Grimm's has not let us down! As a side note, my son has enjoyed this toy from early infancy (2 months) til now (one) and will probably continue to use it well into the future! I've also seen people cut the beads off of the stretchy elastic to use as "loose parts" or "threading" practice once the child has outgrown the toy, which allows for great longevity!
