Best 3-6 Months Toy: NogginSeek Peek + Seek Rattle

A see-through rattle that's more than meets the eye.

Playtime is about having fun, for sure, but it's also how babies practice new skills and learn about the world around them. SmartNoggin's new Peek & Seek Rattle, then, is the perfect teaching toy: It hones motor skills and introduces concepts like cause and effect and object permanence—all while showing baby a grand old time. After all, learning is fun!

WHAT WE LOVE

  • The soft rattle sounds encourage baby's auditory skills while the clear sphere on top lets baby see and observe, strengthening visual skills
  • A textured handle makes for easy grasping and fun tactile exploration
  • With a twist of baby's wrist, a brightly striped tube rotates in the handle and beads spin in and out of sight, creating a pretty mesmerizing display

SUMMARY

A rattle that both delights baby and develops key skills? It's a clear winner in our eyes.

Price: $17
