Pros: Cute, good value, stimulates the senses, washable, attaches to anything.
The Bottom Line: A toy for baby that is her own. Infantino Tag Along Chimes make great friends for baby girl.
With three kids, we're not hurting for toys at all. But when my Little Miss started showing an interest in toys a few weeks ago, I started searching for something new for her, that could her toys. On one of my (many) Babies R Us trips, I picked up the Infantino Tag Along Chimes set primarily because they were on sale but also they were very cute.
These dangling chimes are a little different than ones I've seen before. The toys are stuffed animal heads, with a round tube-like body, which contains the chime. Little limbs also dangle off the body. Our set came with a frog and a duck but I have seen other sets as well. Now here's where they are a little different... each one hangs looking down at baby. Each of these pieces hang on a 3-4" cord that then attaches to pretty much anything. The toys attach with a Velcro strap that matches the animal. The Velcro is pretty heavy duty and won't be ripped off easily. I've hung them from arches, the car seat handle and even Little Miss's wrist. The toys can be wiped off or you can actually throw them in the washer if necessary - just don't dry them.
The toys make a clear chime sound when shaken. Baby girl seems to really like the sound of it as she responds almost every time someone shakes it for her. The character faces are endearing as well. The roundness of the toy is just the right size and shape for my almost 3 month old to get her hands around. This is great for her to practice how to use her hands as she tries to bring the toy to her mouth. She really loves to try to chew on the beak of the duck as well.
Overall the Take Along Chimes are very cute and entertaining for infants. Ours are wearing well. Baby enjoys playing with them and her brothers enjoy playing with them for her as well. They are a pretty good value as well as there were two toys per package costing approximately $7.
