Rated 5 out of 5Â by MomWithTwoBoys My baby loves these bugs!
I bought this gift for my 5-month-old boy. I thought it might be a bit old for him, but I figured he'd grow into it. He obviously can't 'Fill and Spill' the bugs yet, but he adores the bugs! He loves the bright colors, the crinkley wings, and the rattles that the bugs makes, plus he gets great joy out of trying to jam them into his mouth, which thankfully are too big to actually fit into that toothless grin!! In all, this was an awesome purchase, and once he gets a little older, I know he will really have a blast filling the jug with the bug and dumping them out. Melissa and Doug makes awesome toys, and this is definitely no exception!

These are really cute little toys! We bought them because they are unique and simple - children don't always require lights and complex sounds. The bugs make little noises: crinkles, squeaks, and rattles. The colors are fantastic, the jar is a fun prop, and the bugs seem very durable. Many of the Melissa & Doug toys I've seen, much like this one, are great for sparking the imagination without lending themselves to the over stimulation of most toys on the market today!

This toy was reviewed in Today's Parent and made me want to buy it for my daughter, now nine months old. The bug jug is adorable, durable and easily portable so it often comes with us to other people's houses. My daughter loves the bugs, and each one does a different thing (the ladybug squeaks, the grasshopper crinkles) so she doesn't get bored. She also loves the jug itself because it is easy to grip, fun to chew on and she can look through the green sides for a fun view. She only recently figured out how to pull the bugs out of the jug, and I'm sure the next stage is learning to put them back in. The toy grows with the child...my friend's 4 year old thinks the jug is great and loves squishing all the bugs in it! I love this toy, and so does my daughter.

We have not bought a lot of toys for our son. This is one of a few and he loves it. He likes the textures, sounds, and colors of the bugs. They are easy for his little hands to grab and hold onto. He likes to play with and try to eat he jug too. This is a great investment. He has been playing with them for several months now and they still look like new. I think this toy will be around our house for a long, long time.
