I bought this in hopes of making the car ride more fun for my three month old. The design is not very well thought out. I guess it might depend on the make of carseat, but in my Graco, the Velcro straps are in a stupid place. The middle toy kept slapping my daughter in the face so I had to cut it off. She does reach out and bat or hold the other two toys, but where the bar sits makes it hard to carry my carseat.... holding it in the palm of my hand is fine, but trying to slide it into the crook of my elbow for longer carries is impossible now, as the toy bar is in the way. In summary, it isn't so bad that I threw it in the garbage, but I definitely wouldn't buy it again, or buy it for anyone else.
