Infantino Spiral Spin Top

A few days ago this Infantino Spiral Spin Top arrived in the mail. I was excited! My very first product review. At first I wasn't sure about it, it's for ages 6+ months and I thought it might be a little young for him. But Matthew was instantly enamored. He adores the bright colors and hands on aspect of this toy. At 12 months, I think he'll get several months of fun out of it. Garrett, on the other hand, was extremely disappointed that the box only had a baby toy in it and nothing for him. Of course, once I got it out of the package, even he was playing with it. Apparently it passes even a three-year-old's test.

The idea, of course, is a simple one. Push the knob on the top of the toy and the balls will spiral up the ramp and then down again. What I like about it is that it teaches Matthew cognitive skills. Once he masters pushing the knob down, he'll master the toy. It only took a second for him to understand how it worked but he doesn't quite push it hard enough yet.
