Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Melissa & Doug Deluxe Bug Jug Fill & Spill Soft Baby Toy. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.40 stars, and the price range is $17.75-$24.99.

The Melissa & Doug Deluxe Bug Jug Fill & Spill Soft Baby Toy introduces your little ones to four bug buddies - a butterfly, grasshopper, ladybug and the most loved purple spider! This educational toy stimulates tactile senses, while developing fine motor skills, language skills and hand/eye coordination.

Each brightly colorful bug has a unique characteristic to attract your baby's attention - they rattle, crinkle, jingle or squeak. They not only entice but also retain the child's focus for a while; an impossible task when it comes to highly curious or easily bored kids! Crawlers and toddlers can even start working on word and sentence association with these squishy invertebrates.

These soft fabric, multi-textured insects come in a bug jug with a mesh top lid, (so they can breathe while resting inside!). This jug helps develop motor skills when small hands spill and fill it with the chewable insects. Yes, it might threaten your sensibilities, but these bugs are great teething toys once they are thoroughly washed!

The bug jug also doubles up as a storage unit and maybe, for some bright toddlers, as a telescope too! This entertaining plaything also travels well as the pieces are lightweight and occupy minimal space. The only pet peeve reviewers have is that the mouth of the jar is not wide enough for little ones to easily fill it with their insect friends.

A well-made product, the Melissa & Doug Bug Jug might just stretch your wallet, even if you are paying for a quality toy. But this durable and educational jug might just be your key to create an interest in the outdoors, and stop the kids from getting 'bugged' frequently!
