    I bought this on a whim because I was looking for another toy by Learning Resources, which I think they must have discontinued. My baby was 6 months at the time and she loved it immediately…now almost a year and it’s still a favorite. I don’t know what makes it so attractive but any baby who comes over wants to play with it and becomes obsessed with the pegs/quills?, carrying them around. I like that they fit it for neat storage/easy travel and the pegs are numbered so babies can learn numbers as well as colors and work on their fine motor skills putting the pegs in the holes. Highly recommend!! And if they ever bring back that Learning Resources heart box of chocolates that puzzle piece together, buy it!

    LISTED AS ONE OF THE TOP 10 MOST DANGEROUS TOYS THIS YEAR!
    I purchased this for my 14 month old son, and he has really enjoyed it. It doesn’t hold his attention for long, but nothing does. Sadly, my mother just informed me that it was listed as one of the top 10 most dangerous toys this year! I did some research myself, so check it out on toysafetydotcom . The spikes seemed too lage to me to do this, but apparently it is possible for a child of 18 months which the toy is recommended for may swallow one and completely block their throat. Very disappointing. It’s so hard to keep them safe even when you try!

    This is great toy to develop eye hand coordination , but quality of the product is not there. The plastic spikes are made of very soft plastic. 18-24m toodlers still putting everything into their mouth and I was terrified when after one day I have noticed that my son managed to bite through it. So 5 stars for design and idea but sadly none stars for product safety. The spikes should be made of harder plastic or entire product should be marked not suitable under 0-3. Returning!

    I wasn’t 100% sure when ordering this toy, I as a therapist love it, especially for my younger kiddos. I would recommend, for 3 and under, well made, which is a plus.

    Perfect for little hands! My 20 month old is obsessed with this very simple, but very entertaining toy. Great for fine motor skills, direction following, color and number recognition and even learning patterns.

    My 17 month old really enjoyed this toy. He would only play for a short while but I liked that I could pack it away easily. I was hoping as he gets a bit older he would be able to play in different ways like sorting by colours or telling him which number to place a spike in (the numbers on the holes are a bit faint though). 2 months on he’s chewed some of the spikes and they’ve completely split open so no longer fit in the holes. Shame they are not sturdier because he really did like it.

    This is a great toy! My 4.5yr old, 18 mo old, and 11 mo old grandchildren all played with it in different ways. The oldest made color patterns, the middle did the expected fitting in and pulling out of the holes, and the youngest was able to pull them out and grab the ‘quills.’ When done the pieces fit inside making it easy to store. I love Learning Resources toys they are well made and thoughtfully designed.

    This is a great toy to improve your childs motor skills. Although it states 18m+, I think you can use it from 12m+, make sure your child is supervised thought as the pines can be a choking hazard if your child decides to put the whole thing in their mouth!. My son loves this toy now and has done so since he was 18+, he loves to stick the pines in all over the place and take them out and re-arrange them. sometimes placing them in colour coordination.

    Although the hedgehog has number the pines dont, it would have been even better if the pines had numbers on them as it would have helped with number learning and matching as well.

    You can open the back of the hedgehog to places all the pines inside, so it can be tidied away nearly.

    I have not be honest though, I dont think this is worth the price tag of £16.99, I would expect a toy to have a few more functionality for this price. But the toy itself is great for the age range.

    I can vouch this is also Chew Proof!! My son is a vicious chewer and this toy has stood the test of time.

    Love this product. It says 18+ months but it was fun for both of my kids (11 months and 3). It’s meant to help with fine motor skills. The spikes are rubber with different colors and you can put them in and take them out of the holes in the hedgehog. The best part is that when they’re done playing the hedgehog opens and you can store all the spikes in there so they don’t get lost. Definitely recommend this product #learningresources

    I was excited to buy this for my almost 3 year old and 20 month old. Reviews were all amazing, but the truth is they’re overrated.
    3 year old had no interest, way too simple. 2 year old bit them and squashed them so they wouldn’t fit in the holes. Mostly used for opening and throwing around the floor. Couldn’t turn my back with this toy or she almost had the whole peg down her neck. Just something to be very cautious about.

    This toy is so well made ! Both my kids were fighting over it as they fight over all the toys. I love how portable it is to take on trips or on the go to grandma’s house. Love how it builds fine motor skills and counting skills for my three year old. The colors are gorgeous! Won’t regret buying this!

    Entertaining and great for motor skills!! My 22 month old son loves to put his toys through holes and containers. Lately he’s been obsessed with putting his crayons through any hole and crevice around which keeps him entertained but I had to watch him closely as he would also love to color my walls and furniture. I came across this toy while looking for another toy and thought I’d be perfect, I was not mistaken he loves it!! Another plus is that it’s a great travel toy as you can store the quills inside the shell. We take it with us to keep him entertained during dinner or flights.

    we have a disabled son & we got told by his OT that this would be great for him! he’s played with it before & it 10/10 did not disappoint! it’s great for his fine motor skills which need strengthing due to his disabaility!

    it’s super sturdy,it also helps him with his colours & his counting (he’s almost 4 years old) it’s great value for money & we know it’s going to be a staple for years!
