I purchased this when my daughter was 3 months based on all the positive reviews regarding use during tummy time. My daughter loved it, her face lit up when watching the snail. She is now 5 months and she still loves this toy, the problem is now she is reaching and grabbing and this toy is bulky and has weight. I always have to be right next to her because I am nervous she's going to poke herself in the eye with the antennas, she loves to flip it over, spin it, and get whatever she can in her mouth. I don't usually pull it out for her to pay with anymore, but if she sees it in her toy basket she will reach for it and I take it out for her. Well after today it is getting hidden away. Even with me laying down right next to her, she still managed to knock it over into her face. Sometimes these things just happen very fast. She was OK, 10 seconds of crying, and hug and a kiss from Mommy and all was right with the world. But I just no longer think this is appropriate for her. Hopefully when she gets older it can make a come back.
