My little baby boy is no longer a baby, he turned 1 on Friday, so he is now officially a toddler, although he will of course always be Mummy’s little baby boy. Anyway, as you know he is an official Playgro toy tester, and here’s his review on the *Playgro Rock 'n' Stack Stacking Rings;


What They Say:

A rainbow of five teeth-able rings fit over a cone with a rocking base. Baby can sort and stack the rings, then bat at the base to watch it rock back and forth. Playgro's textured stacking rings are an essential for baby. Their vibrant colours and fun design make them perfect for playtime.


RRP:  $6 – Available from Coles

What Oliver Says:
My new toy tester job has me now playing with Playgro Rock 'n' Stack Stacking Rings, and if you haven’t already, make sure you’ve checked out other Playgro reviews of the Bathtime Squirtees, Stacking Fun Cups, and Grip ‘n’ StackSoft Blocks.

I got very excited when Mum gave the Playgro Rock 'n' Stack, as I really like the bright colours, and I immediately had to knock the tower down and pull the rings off.

Mum and Dad have showed me to get the rings back on the spike, and I do my best to do it myself too, although sometimes I get the size order wrong and they won’t all fit. But it is all benefiting my cognitive skills, encouraging me to think, and learn how to do it myself.


The rings have a good size and thickness and are very light too, so even though I still only have small hands, they are easy to pick up.

I also like that the rings have different textures, where some have small dimples, others rings, and some are completely smooth, which helps with my tactile development and my fine motor skills, also teaching me to use my hands and fingers when I reach for them.


The brightly coloured ring help stimulate my visual perception. The stacking rings is a very simple toy, yet it is very good for my early educational teaching of the understanding of colour, size and shape, as well as hand-eye coordination and creativity.


I like crawling and walking around with a donut in each hand – yeah, Mum calls the rings for donuts, I don’t really know why as she hates donuts, so poor little me will probably not get to taste one until I turn 21!

According to Playgro, these blocks are suitable from 9 months, but I still enjoy playing with them although I’m one now, and I also think that someone at 4-6 months of age would have just as much fun playing with them.

I definitely recommend the Playgro Rock 'n' Stack Stacking Rings, as they are heaps of fun to play with, and Mum says that at just $6, they are a fantastic bargain too!


Thanks again for employing me Playgro!
