This multicolored plastic rattle may be your baby's first sculpture. Five curved, finger-length struts that are perfect for gripping encircle a clear hourglass filled with red, blue, yellow, and green beads. Baby can see and hear the beads as she rattles away on the floor, in a stroller, or even in the bath. The 3.75-inch-by-4.5-inch Gripper Rattle looks like a tall, plump, see-through doughnut. Since babies focus most easily on objects within an arm's length, this toy will enhance hand-to-eye coordination. Because the rattle engages so many of the senses (sight, sound, touch) and can be explored by grasping and sucking, it's likely to sustain a baby's interest for some time.
