My son loves this rattle - we got it as a gift so I didn't know it price before writing this review. It has a rubbery outer shell which makes it softer than other rattle. Its good bright colours. It makes a good noise. He enjoys playing with the rings on the handle. It is easy to clean. He finds both the handle and the ring easy to hold. He likes to chew on the larger ring part. This makes a good luxury rattle.
