The skiwsh toy was one of the most popular toys with my baby at 4 months.
He loved knawing on it. I think it was good to help sore good. It's easy for babies of 4 months to handle and look at. There are sliding beads to attract babies attention.
Babies can lean on it and skwish it out of shape and it returns back to the right shape again (hence the name).
