Must buyBlueFlowersMomThis is the cutest little rattle!!! The colors are very bright, the rattling nice and crisp and the neck is ultra easy for little hands to grasp and shake! Great travel toy too. Instant favorite of my (then) 10month old. Wish I had bought it sooner. Now at 20 months she still really enjoys it as a small cuddle toy. I have hand-washed it multiple times (fully submerged in water) and air dried, and still as good as new.5
Perfect rattleRomsMomMy son is huge for his age (9 months old wearing 24 month clothing), which means rattles are more like hammers and can be dangerous to anyone near him. We appreciate how soft this rattle is and he loves it.5

My 4mo twins fell in love with it at the storeMom Of Two Baby BearsMy 4mo twins fell in love with it immediately at the store. They would have a huge grin on their face every time they see the giraffe. Now they are 8mo and this is still one of their favorite toys.5
Great size!!Giraffe RattleI bought this awhile ago for my baby. He absolutely loves it! It fits perfect in his hand and keeps him staring at it because of the color and pattern!5
Cute Infant ToyKTtheNanaThis is the perfect size toy for babies to hold. I think the horns on the head might need to be checked to make sure they can't be bitten off easily. I like that it is machine washable.4
Baby loves this!Grandma23Simple but very entertaining for a 3 month old.5
Play turns us into human beings
Look, touch, push, lift… play is a way for your baby to develop their senses, to get orientated and to try to understand their surroundings. With the KLAPPA toys collection we wanted to develop toys which stimulate this journey of discovery and contribute to the important interaction between you and your baby. From a social context, the child grows through play, and becomes a human being.
When a new born baby’s eyes open for the first time, the central nervous system is still not yet fully developed. The eyes cannot see a distance of more than 7⅞-15¾", about as far away as the nursing mother's face. But by interacting with a variety of impressions, like colors, shapes, touches and sounds, the development of the small child's brain is stimulated. This is explained by researcher Krister Svensson, who has studied children's development, play and learning for many years. "But resting is just as important as the stimulation. The brain occasionally needs rest from the impressions in order to sort it all and relate everything to what it previously registered."
The details entice play
Toys adapted to the small baby can contribute to these important impressions which stimulate the brain's development. But what is it that really makes a certain toy enticing to the child? "Often it's something that stands out in their surroundings and draws attention to itself", says Krister. "Maybe black dots on a yellow giraffe or the sound of a rattle." Designer Malin Unnborn, who designed the KLAPPA toys collection, wanted to find those specific details that could create curiosity and lead to play. "For example, for the picture book and the ball I used colours with strong contrasts and fabrics with different structures, such as glossy and matte, soft and rough." On the snuggle blanket, the play mat and the baby gym, Malin made shark fins, ears and other details that stick out just enough for small and curious fingers to pinch them.
Toys create interaction
KLAPPA became an entire world of imaginative animals, plants and planets to explore. ”Maybe it’s not that important for the baby that it's a crab looking up at the edge of the play mat”, Malin says. "But it can entice an older child to play with their younger sibling." Krister feels that toys also play an important social function in the child's development. "They act as tools for social interaction between you and your child, and it's you who gives the toys life and meaning." For example, by naming a rattle 'a yellow giraffe', you can talk about it, and when you take turns holding the giraffe, an understanding in the child arises as to how they themselves are a part of a context. Play is based on interaction and is quite simply a necessity for a human being’s development, says Krister. "To become a human being requires interaction with other people."
What is polyester?
Polyester is a durable, quick-drying and insulating material that is optimal to use for textiles and as filling in pillows, quilts and furniture. The material is made from crude oil – a limited resource. Since IKEA doesn’t want to contribute to more virgin oil being used, we are now gradually switching to recycled and traceable polyester from sources like PET bottles. What’s nice is that polyester can be recycled over and over, without changing or losing its great qualities.
