Punching Bag for Babies: Bop & Wobble Lion
Bop and Wobble Lion by Infantino is a 25" tall, 18" wide inflatable lion intended for babies 6- to 12-months-old.
As you might guess, its sole function is to take the abuse of babies who will grab, push, pull, drag and bear hug it.
Officially, the toy develops dexterity and hand-eye coordination. In reality, babies think it’s a riot to knock it over and have it come right back up, thanks to its weighted bottom. There is a lot of holding it down and watching it whoosh vertical again. Impossible!
I haven’t used the Bop & Wobble Lion, but I did buy a considerably shorter (and since discontinued) Executive Bozo Mini Bop Bag for my daughter when she was 9-months-old. The 18" Bozo the Clown punching bag was intended for office desktops, but my Little Miss loved wrestling with her little companion.
