Great developmental toyMay 02, 2009
By Amanda Jayne
For those of you looking for more details, as the description is sorely lacking, here they are: The outer diameter of each ring is about 7 inches, the inner diameter about 5; the spines are between a quarter and half an inch long; I'm not sure what the rings are made of, but it has a rubber/plasticy feel and is flexible. They are sold seperately, not in sets of four.
Now for the review:
I bought one of these as a gift for the little girl I babysit for. She has severe brain damage and is sometimes hard to buy for, but she liked this a lot. As soon as I put her hand around it, she started turning it around to feel the spines, and she was able to keep a good hold on it.
This seems like a great developmental toy. The spines massage your hands, which is wonderful for sensory development, and it's flexible, so you can bend and twist it. It also seems to be very durable, and should be able to stand up to chewing. Overall, I would highly recommend this toy.

Only 1 Ring NOT (RINGS) as described.May 04, 2009
By Steven T. Watson
The product description and review of another person clearly states (RINGS) the picture has several so I was expecting to receive what was in the picture. It was just a big red ring and nothing more.
In there product description they should state " A Ring" not RINGS.
While I think it is a great product I am truly disapointed in the false description.

AKU RINGJul 18, 2009
By T. Sullivan
I agree about the description of this "ring". I was a bit disappointed myself, expecting a set of rings. It is fairly large as in previous review. I think it is a great developmental toy. My son likes the feel of it and that he can "fidget" with it by bending and twisting, etc...

Serves it's purposeApr 30, 2013
By Ramona Underwood
This ring was purchased as a 'fidget' buster for my first grader. She is using to battle the down time she has in the classroom or when she finds herself with pent up energy. It is difficult to visualize the size so it was a little larger than I anticipated, but this isn't too much of a drawback.

Piece of crapOct 04, 2012
This thing fell apart immediately. I threw it out. Don't buy. Very cheap and essentially a choking hazard for kids.
