Well, my baby likes this Baby Einstein Bendy Ball but I do have to question the safety of this baby toy when you take a look at all the interior screws which you can easily see. If one of those screws were to happen to come lose and you didn't happen to realize that it did, a baby could very easily swallow this choking hazard. I would be sure that they are all very secure at all times, also it isn't very bendy as it says in the name, you would have to be pretty strong to push it in. This isn't a great on-the-go toy since it can easily be thrown far or lost if little one's drop it. I do however like the concept of it and my little one enjoys his time with it, and I think that with a few minor changes to it, this Baby Einstein bendy ball could be a perfect toy. Versatility It's not very versatile, it's a toy ball, that's about the extent of it so baby can have a fun time with it though. Durability The Baby Einstein Bendy Ball is very durable, I will certainly give it that, it can stand up to being thrown, chewed on, and everything else little one's like to dish out. Safety There is the small safety issue regarding the screws that could come out, but, other than that I really didn't see any other issues with the safety of this toy. Ease of Cleaning Very simple to clean, just wipe it down or dip it into a cleaning solution, rinse, and let dry. Ease of Assembly It's already assembled for you, can't get any more simple than that!
