Review of a Baby Einstein Caterpillar

The Baby Einstein Caterpillar is part of a wide range of delightful educational and entertaining toys for babies.  My favorite is this Baby Einstein Caterpillar Ring Rattle. It's colorful and adorable and its bright colors will catch the eyes of baby.

It's a clear ring rattle with brightly colored beads and a plush caterpillar character that wraps around the rattle.


Baby Einstein Company


The Baby Einstein products are a unique combination of music, art, language (English, French and Spanish), shapes and numbers, and the animals found in nature. They are a world of discovery in the early moments of your baby's life.  The Baby Einstein Company was begun about fifteen years ago by a mom who wanted to share her love of the arts, history, the earth and literature with her baby. Today her unique and creative baby products entertain and engage the curiosity of babies.  The company's philosophy is to create toys that satisfy the curiosity of children and the wish of parents to nourish it. 

products are inspired by a simple and universal idea: the curiosity of young children, and the wish of parents everywhere to nourish it. - See more at: http://www.kidsii.com/brands/baby-einstein/#sthash.nCGUP1UF.dpuf

Recently, a mother from Canada contacted me through my Etsy Shop about a plush crocheted caterpillar I had made.  She wondered if I could create the same caterpillar in the Baby Einstein colors of yellow, blue, purple, red and green as her two-year-old daughter was in love with the Baby Einstein caterpillar and wanted a soft toy one. 

The Baby Einstein products were not around when this 'grandma' was raising her children, so I needed to do some research.  As a result, I fell in love with the colorful Baby Einstein Caterpillar and this plush version was the result.

The mom sent me a special note when her daughter received her colorful crocheted caterpillar inspired by the Baby Einstein Caterpillar.  Her daughter said "my very own caperpillar" (how she says it). 

So far caterpillar has gone to bed with her, had lunch with her, jumped on the trampoline with her and played in the basement. It's already had quite an adventure!

As a result, I was inspired to create another crocheted colorful caterpillar for my shop, Coastal Crochet Crafts, on Etsy.

The Baby Einstein caterpillar products are a wonderful line of infant toys and baby playtime products and I'm grateful to my Canadian mom customer for introducing me to them, especially since I have a baby grandson.  I can see a few of these unique items as Christmas and birthday presents in my grandsons' future.

  3. I like that the Baby Einstein caterpillar rattle has both plush and plastic elements and, of course, the sound. I especially love your plush caterpillar as well as the other adorable plush toys in your Etsy shop. You do beautiful work!

    1. Thank you, Susan. I've enjoyed making plush animals in crochet for more than 40 years. My family is awash in plush toys, so now I feature them in an Etsy shop for children everywhere. :)

  6. I always learn something new from your posts and this one is no exception. I was not familiar with the Baby Einstein line of toys so I will have to check them out for a new granddaughter we are expecting this summer. And the soft cuddly caterpillar to go with it is a great idea. I can see why that little girl loved it. Thank you for sharing all this with us.
