  • This is my baby’s favorite toy by far. It says 18 months, but he has enjoyed it from about 10 months to now (12 months). He seems to get bored of toys quickly, but not this one. Jan 11, 2021

  • My kids loved this so much, we got two sets because they’d fight over it. The wood pieces are beautiful and it’s so much better than the plastic option. Oct 11, 2020

    Sturdy quality and pretty to look at. Great for counting, learning colors, stacking, and comparing different sizes. Feb 11, 2020

    Definitely for older babies and the age recommended on the product. I'd stick to the simple classic plastic ring toy and call it a day. Feb 06, 2019

  • I really love that the colors can be stacked in any order. This allows him to put it together without getting frustrated, and I'll be able to see the progression of development later on. Jan 31, 2019

    We love this stacker. it is much better than the plastic ones because they don't have to stack in a specific order. Jan 30, 2019

  • Our son prefers the plastic kind but used this too with supervision. The wood post is solid and has no give so if he fell on it, it could do some damage. Colors last- but wood shows through if scraped Jul 01, 2018

  • We're saving it for his first birthday, but seems very well made. I'm sure it will be a hit. Mar 17, 2018

  • I've said it before and I'll say it again - you can't beat the quality of Mellisa & Doug! This has been a favorite around our house for a year now and still in great shape! Jan 22, 2018

    Classic baby toy, perfect for my 1 year old. Oct 19, 2017

  • Classic toy. Speaks for itself. Sep 26, 2017

  • I love that kids can be creative in stacking order. We are now using it to identify colors. May 16, 2017

    Good size and economically priced (the one I was looking at was bigger but $50. This was a good compromise.) Dec 15, 2016

    my 15 month olds favorite toy Nov 16, 2016

  • Great stacking toy. This was a toy our son likes to take the rings off but hasn't quite learned to out them back on. He will with time and the quality has upheld much banging. Sep 22, 2016

  • Much better than the plastic ring stacker. Great quality and the rings can be stacked in any order unlike the plastic kind. My daughter loves to stack them and dump them. It's a good size too. May 16, 2016

    well made and sturdy. i like the plastic one better. Feb 23, 2016

  • I like this a lot better than the alternative plastic ones or light up ones. It's well made and has lasted well. Oct 27, 2015

  • Love that its wood but (duh, shoulda thought about it) the center pole is hazardous. We have to supervise use or we take away the center and let the kid roll the rings around (also fun). Aug 26, 2015

  • This toy will last for a while since he will grow with it and be able to learn sequencing and colors as he gets older May 01, 2015

    Stacking toys were one of our favorites from about 9 months on. This one is colorful and nicer than the plastic Fisher Price model (which was the first stacking toy we had). Apr 30, 2015

    Finn loves the pieces, but the wooden pole they are on seems dangerous Apr 29, 2015

  • Such a good quality toy! Worth every penny! My son can play with this for hours. Apr 07, 2015

  • The glue didn't hold and it fell apart almost immediately Mar 05, 2015

  • My son loves this toy. While he's smaller I make sure he isn't running around with the center piece but everything else about it is great! Oct 12, 2014

    Have but haven't used yet. Sep 24, 2014

  • My mom got this for my daughter as part of her 1 year old present. It almost immediately became one of her favorite toys! She loves putting the big rings on her other M&D peg toy too. Jul 29, 2014

  • Our daughter has played with this really consistently for the last 6 months. (She received it for her first birthday.) Even if they can't stack them correctly...they are still fun. Grows with them. Jul 29, 2014

  • Never really got into this one. She preferred the soft cloth one instead. Jul 25, 2014

  • great for building hand eye coordination and he's learning to identify color and size! Jul 23, 2014
