The bright colors, bold patterns and easy-to-grasp bumps make this ball a must-have. The high contrast colors of the ball allow baby to focus, strengthening vision. The gentle rattle sounds from the trapped beads create neural connections in baby’s brains from birth through 3 years of age. Chunky sized bumps on the ball encourage reaching, grasping, and transferring from one hand to another, developing baby’s motor skills. The differing materials engage baby’s developing tactile sensitivity and teach baby about variety.

lol, It’s too sassy and I would give it 16/10 instead of 15. Funniest question I have seen so far. Check out another sassy balls from another listing. it’s very affordable and bouncy.
My humble opinion is no. I bought it for my 6 month old at the time and he is 10 months now and has played with it a few times. Completely uninterested but its not a bad toy just not much to it.
6+ months or whenever baby starts to be interested in toys. It’s not dangerous or anything like that for a younger baby to play with.
No. None of the shapes make that sound.
Yes, it is a soft material. There’s plastic but only on the two ends and it’s a harder type so shouldn’t cause any damage. As for a 0-3 I’m sure they’d be interested in the colors but unless your child is able to reach out and hold on to it, I’m not sure how much they’d enjoy it. I purchased it for my 4 month old(almos… Yes, it is a soft material. There’s plastic but only on the two ends and it’s a harder type so shouldn’t cause any damage. As for a 0-3 I’m sure they’d be interested in the colors but unless your child is able to reach out and hold on to it, I’m not sure how much they’d enjoy it. I purchased it for my 4 month old(almost 5m now) and she likes it, I mainly play with it and have her follow the colors or look at the little beads inside the plastic.
No, the rattle is not quiet enough for church. The reason is the containers are plastic and so are the balls. So it’s actually a bit loud.
Mine was not in a box but I purchased it as an add-on item. It just came in a sealed plastic bag
My grandson was 3 months old when he got it. He “helped” hold it, brought it to his mouth and liked watching his sibs play with him with it. It will continue to be fun for him for a while.
considering it’s a ball, it works about like a ball would work…
No, i wipe it down or spot clean it. The manufacturer says not to machine wash.
There is no LED in it
I use a Clorox wipe
the material is fabric.. different textures around the ball.. all fabric
Wipe clean with a soft damp cloth, or a disinfectant wipe.

Smaller than expected, but the size is actually perfect. My four month old neice loves it. It’s fun for her to feel all of the different textures. I’d recommend! UPDATE: niece is now nine months and still loves this toy, can beat that price.
My baby will be 5 months in a week and she was a preemie. She weighs 14lbs and still wears 0-3 months. She loves this toy since she mastered using both hands. She picks it up with no problem and like all her toys drops it and needs some mommy assistance. She plays with it in her car seat, swing and laying around on her toddler mattress on my living room floor. So for the moms who hesitate or put off this toy because of the many reviews that say it’s to big, I say it depends on the kid. If your baby is developing at a normal rate or faster this toy is great from 4 months on because it’s bright, has many textures, makes noise and has lots of bumps to help with grabbing it. I added pictures to help show how well she handles it! It being so big I feel help her hold on to it longer and also to pick it back up because she can see it next to her causing her to reach for it.
Such a classic toy for older babies! We introduced this toy too early and it was a little bit of sensory overload for our newborn. Now that the baby is learning to crawl and grasp better, it’s just right! Remember to try toys again on your kids at different times and only one toy at a time. You never know what might work. This is labeled as a toy for a 6 month old so it was my bad. To encourage crawling I put this right out of reach. Because of the bumps, it will never roll away too far and might be encouraging for your baby to keep trying to “get it”.
Very cute ball! I love that every part is different. It keeps baby occupied, and it’s very colorful! It’s a bit big for an infant’s hands, but my daughter is 4 months now, so I think in the next month, she’ll be able to get a good grip of it! I love Sassy’s toys, and this one has sold me just like the many other toys we have of their brand. I did see reviews of stitching problems, but ours is fine, so I think that one was probably just a defective one, don’t let that steer you away from ordering it, because it almost did for me, but I decided to order it anyway and to my surprise, it was in great shape!
Our four-month old loves to touch all of the different lumps and feel the different textures. It’s big enough that he can’t quite hold it, but he does reach for it and grab at it. He seems to prefer different sides depending on his mood, so it must be pretty stimulating. It’s one of the top 5 small toys in his playtime rotation.
It’s not the best for teething, but it works for things that always go in the mouth.
It’s super easy to hold, and toss back and forth gently because there is 2 hard plastic rattles on ends.
We loved it so much that when we found it on our friends wish list we had to get it.
When we found it we were recovering in the hospital and I was looking for toys that would help fine motor skills and encourage play sitting up (due to swelling) and this was the perfect ball that even the coordinator of the children’s hospital put a few on the wish list!
I like that this toy is big so my baby loves looking at it and watching it roll around. I ordered this for her for Christmas and she was just under 3 months so she wasn’t quite interested in it yet. Now, she is just under 6 months and she loves batting this ball around. If I hit it over to her, she hits at it to try to move it back to me. She loves the little rattling balls in the plastic pieces, but she can’t quite hold onto the ball yet. Her small little hands can’t figure out how to grip onto the big pieces around it, but if I put it in between her hands, she will hold onto it for a minute and try to chew on it. She holds onto other smaller toys just fine, so it must just be the size of this one. The balls are all a little too big to chew on, so I wouldn’t consider this a teething toy, but I didn’t buy it for that so I’m not upset! My baby just likes to stick everything in her mouth so I’m sure she will eventually make it a teething toy once she figures out how to! We love this toy, especially for tummy time!
I bought this right after my baby had turned 3 months old in May because he was loving to look at things that were brightly colored. He is now 5 months and finally has an interest in playing with it and loves it if we play with him shaking the ball for the rattle noise and turning it for him to see all the colors. As far as playing by himself: he will for a few minutes until he drops it or it rolls away and then he moves on to something else. He seems to like it for teething some though he can’t get much of it in his mouth just yet but I really like it for sensory development because of all the different textures of fabrics.
My daughter is only 3 months old and I got this a month ago. It’s definitely large for a 2 month and my daughter was a premie. I love the bright colors and different textures.
I don’t understand why we were asked to rate based on teething. This thing is mostly fabric, aside from the 2 big plastic bumps, and you can’t just throw it in the washer and call it a day. She does try to bite it, but her mouth is too small to actually bite the bumps, so she just ends up drooling all over them. I definitely wouldn’t use as a regular teether anyway…. But it’s not advertised as a teether either.
UPDATE: As for how easy it is to hold, my daughter has no problem holding onto the bumps now that she is 5 months old and has been able to do so for about a month. She seems to hold onto it very easily.
My son is so entertained by this ball which is a decent size i must say, has at least 3 maybe 4 different types of textures, great for teething, makes loud nice when shaken due to little colorful balls, one on each side of the ball which def. captivates babies attention. As side from his taggy blankey my son keeps this ball VERY close by! I recommend, my son is now 8 months old but I think this could be introduced to a baby as young as 5 months old maybe even 4 months and since the sizing is so great the baby will actually grow into the ball versus the other way around.
