Baby toy makers are sadistic bastards. Or my son is a little slow.
So he's gotten pretty good at grabbing and he loves putting things in his mouth. The issue is most baby toys are too big for him to get into his mouth. So he grabs Malory the Monkey attempts to put her in his mouth and can't get any part in there (the other monkey we have the only part he can get in his mouth is the monkey's banana. . . which is slightly disturbing and can only be done if we do it for him). So he grabs toys tries to get them in his mouth and gets upset because all he gets is his own fingers
"Huh? This elephant tastes just like my fingers. Wait a second. . . damn it!"
Even his Jumperoo is taunting him. He sits in the seat and leans forward as far as he canhis mouth open ready to chomp down on the parrotbut the hanging toys are just out of reach.
I think it's a flaw in the toy's design. For a baby to grab most toys, they need both hands so they hold it vertically, but to get in their mouth it either needs a nubbin or needs to be horizontal. What we need is a little silicone hand shaped thing. He's good at getting our fingers in his mouth. We need something with corners that is chewy. Has anyone seen this toy?
