Travelling Souk EarthwormInitial thoughts: These Travelling Souk wooden earth worms for babies look lovely. I’m a sucker for nice wooden toys and would probably have a houseful of them, if I could afford it. And it’s nice to get a toy for a baby that does something other than rattle, squeak or make some kind of annoying noise!

We liked: Eleanor’s a bit young (5 weeks) to test out whether the Travelling Souk Earth Worm does encourage her grasping skills, as is claimed, but she does love to stare at it and will follow it with her eyes. Rosemary (3 years) likes showing it to Eleanor and making it talk. It’s painted with child-safe paint and is made from ‘an earth friendly hardwood’, so environmentally sound – a big improvement on the usual plastic toys!

We weren’t keen: I would be a bit concerned about little fingers getting caught in between the sections of the earth worm, though haven’t seen any evidence of this happening and it probably takes too much strength to separate the sections for this to be an issue with a baby.

Overall: This would be a lovely stocking filler for a 6-month-old and has the added benefits of being environmentally friendly and encouraging development (grasping skills). Oh yes, and, if the baby doesn’t like it, it will look nice on the mantelpiece.
