      Comments about Skwish:

      I have used this toy for approximately 8 years with infants, and toddlers and special needs kids. The kids love it! it has held up wonderfully. I went on maternity leave and the toy was skwished in a box for 3 months, it has finally started to show some wear but the kids still love it. I will buy one for my daughter.

        Who knew? I spoke with other parents that recommended this toy as something that would hold my baby's attention. Of all of the interesting-appearing-fancy toys, this is one our baby's favorites! It doesn't keep our baby occupied for hours but A definitely loves playing with it for a good period of time.

            Sweet sound not loud or annoying. Made of wood which I prefer with toys and so far very Durable to constant throwing and pulling. Even mom and dad like to squish it and rattle it. Just wish we had gotten it sooner. Would have been a great first toy because it's easy to grab even when not so baby still isn't so coordinated.

                  my 5 month old loves her skwish! we received the toy as a gift when she was 3 months and it continues to be one of her favorites. she likes shaking it to hear the soft sound the wooden parts make. but most of all she likes to toss it on the ground to see her mommy pick it up.

                        My son, who is almost 4 months old absolutely loves this toy. He is beginning to show symptoms of teething, so he chews on this. Plus it is easy for him to hold and light enough for him to pick up.

                          This toy has captivated my 4 month old daughter for the past month. She will sometimes play with it for an hour! ...just pulling it up to her face and switching hands. The great thing about it is that when she bonks herself in the face and puts the knobs in her mouth it doesn't hurt. The stretchy elastic holding it together is the perfect material for allowing little fingers to wrap around and tug, but maintain a grip on it. This toy is a winner!

                            Our 4 moth old daughter leaned toward this toy as we were looking for a new toy for her. When we held it out to her she reachedout and took it while she was in the Bjorn and refused to let it go. It has become her favorite toy. Amazing how omething so basic looking to adults is the must have accessory toy for babies!

                              My child, now 7.5 months, has played with this toy since 3 months and it is one of her favorites. She rattles it, grabs it with hands and feet, and can smush it flat. She rotates it to study it, teethes on the nubby ends, and transfers it from hand to hand. The bungy elastic strings are great for tugging with her toes while her hands pull in resistance. IF YOU CAN HAVE ONLY 1 TOY, THIS IS IT!!!!

                                My baby has loved this toy since he was 2 months old, but I only just bought it at 7 months old because all his friends has one and I didn't want it to get mixed up with theirs. We travelled on an airplane with this and it kept him entertained from the car ride to the airport, in the stroller waiting to board, on the airplane itself, and on the car ride to the hotel. He doesn't get bored with this. It's the best toy!

                                  I love this toy. I got it for my son when he was three months old, he is 11 months now and still loves it, it has even gone on three plane trips with us andis great in the car. At first he loved it because it was easy for him to grab and move around and the bright colors attracted him. Now he loves crawling with it and playing with the wooden beads. Would recommend it to all babies!

                                      The only reason I didn't give this toy 5 stars is because it doesn't entertain my daughter for long periods of time and it's awkward for her to handle at 6 months old. It's also bulky for the diaper bag. However, I think it's a good toy and made well.

                                          Every child that I have ever come in contact with has always loved this toy! It is great around the 2-3 mo age to get them to start grabbing things and then bringing them to the mouth. A must have!
