HABA Kringelring is a wooden teething toy with flexible elements threaded on a strong elastic band. It provides gentle twists as your child tugs and pulls on this child-safe toy. Made in Germany.
Babies need multi sensory stimulation early in life. It helps them put "two and two" together. Grasping toys like HABA's Kringelring help very young children meet their basic needs. For example, babies need something hard and safe to bite on while they are teething. This helps soothe their tender gums. A pleasant rattle sound provides gentle and reassuring feedback. Various textures and sounds create association opportunities (this surface is smooth; this thing is hard; when I shake this, it makes sounds), which help babies begin to organize information in their disorganized young brains.

You can pull or twist the colored elements as they are attached together by a strong elastic band. At first, I was concerned that it may pinch my son's little fingers, but there is no concern as the elements are attached tight enough to hold themselves together, yet you can still twist or pull them without real danger of a pinch.
