Timberdoodle recently released their spring catalog which is chock-full of fun new offerings such as the Mobi Zippee Toy I tried out on my grandbaby this week.
This toy is much softer and squishier than I anticipated. I thought the central capsule would be hard plastic, but it is actually made of textured, food-grade silicone.
The toy is designed for ages 18 months and up, although my 12-month-old grandson enjoyed playing with it quite a bit. He enjoyed pulling the zippee cables out to their full length, but didn’t immediately realize he could turn the toy around and do the same thing going the other direction.
Instead, he waited for us to return them to their original position so he could repeat the process a second (and third and fourth) time.
Not to worry: His big sister was more than happy to help him out. She seemed to like the bright colors and varied textures even more than he did.
The Mobi Zippee Toy held up well to the brief game of tug-of-war that ensued. It is surprisingly durable.
Big sister (who recently turned three) gained full possession in the end and played with the cables in a more orderly systematic way, pulling all of them from one side to the other in sequence, then pulling them back again to their original position.
Do you have some curious kiddos who’d enjoy a squishy, chewable toy like this? You can order your very own Mobi Zippee Toy through Timberdoodle as a stand-alone product or as part of their 2023 Tiny Tots Curriculum, so check it out!
While you’re on the Timberdoodle website, I’d encourage you to look around. We love everything we’ve ever ordered from this small family-owned company!
