My 5 month old loves this ring, which we ordered in textured blue. Perfect for him to hold, he chews and chews away. It feels like the perfect amount of tenderness for him. The material has no concerning smell (I heard other products from Amazon do...) which I did not anticipate, since I scrutinize what I buy for him. I felt better paying a little more for a safe, quality product. I just wish I ordered more of these rings in the same order. I even loop it on to the baby carrier and he chews on it there. Anyway, LOVE this product!!
