NogginStik hits multiple areas of growth and learning which are not easy to find and are honestly, what parents should be looking for in an infant toy (not just if the toy is cute). When I first started using NogginStik, my daughter was 2 months old and she could only watch as I shook the toy or moved it around for her eyes to follow. Gradually I started placing it in her hand and she was able to realize she could control it too. At 4 months she now understands she has the capability to manipulate the toy herself and desires to do so. Although, she is still honing those fine motor skills I see improvement every day as she works with the NogginStik™.

The base of the NogginStik doubles as a soft rattle, which is easy to hold for my daughter to learn grasping. I love that it has different textures for her to feel. As my daughter learns to hold the NogginStik and transfer the rattle from hand to hand, she is able to find herself at the other end in the small mirror to keep her laughing.

The NogginStik has many great benefits for your baby’s eyes and brain. It stimulates visual tracking in infants and cause and effect in older babies. The bottom or the base of the rattle makes a quiet sound when your baby gives it a shake. The middle handle is perfect for some easy grasping practice, especially with the different textures used. Another feature I think is very cute is the mirror in the bottom of the base, it is so fun when your baby discovers themselves. This would be a great toy to get older siblings involved in playing with the baby.

Having my son with autism has also opened my eyes to the world of developmental toys and why they are so important. A smooth rattle can help with auditory and visual stimulation and it can strengthen grip, but with a few additions, that simple rattle can open up an entirely new world to a developing infant. The NogginStik, for instance, has nubs on the handle which adds to the
development of touch. Now baby is able to receive additional sensory input when the rattle is held by the handle. The smooth top and the zebra‐stripped rattle section, allow for even more sensory input through touch.

The SmartNoggin toys are actually VERY nice. We’ve received a lot of baby gear the last 2 months and the SmartNoggin toys are the best ones!
Review from DisneyCarToys
Parker is now 6 months old and loves to play with toys. We have several toys that she likes but one of her new favorites is the NogginStik developmental Light Up Rattle by SmartNoggin. I seriously wish we would have had this toy with all 3 of my girls! Parker absolutely loved it from the first time that I gave it to her. She loves to bang it, transfer from hand to hand, shake it and she loves when it changes colors! I love seeing her reach and play with it on the floor.

As a parent I want items that help my little man grow and reach his milestones early or at the proper age. I think having learning toys that are fun and beneficial are so important! NogginStik is easy to hold and handle for mastering grasping, and it has some fun textures to it!

I really like all the functions of NogginStik. The light up color is soft and it’s easy for Madilyn to tap the NogginStik for the light to come on. The handle is thin and easy for her to grab onto and is light enough for her to move the NogginStik around. I really like this toy and it will be something she will continue to play with.
