And the Winner Is: Manhattan Toy Company Winkel

As baby begins to reach for and grasp toys and understand cause and effect (aka, “if I shake this, it’ll make noise”), rattles are a perfect plaything to offer. The Winkle, a two-in-one rattle and teething toy with soft, colorful plastic loops, has been a fan favorite for years. It’s designed for tiny hands to hold easily and to help baby develop fine motor skills through clutching and two-handed play. It may seem simple, but it’ll quickly become your child’s favorite toy.

What We Love

  • Its lightweight design makes it easy for little hands to grab, hold and shake; plus, the loops let you slip a pacifier clip through it to keep it off the floor, making it the perfect travel toy
  • The colorful loops will catch baby’s eye, while the rattle in the middle of the cube will hold baby’s ear
  • The teethable plastic loops are BPA-free and baby-safe; you can even pop the Winkel in the fridge to give your teething child’s sore gums some cool relief
