I hope this review (and photo) help buyers like me who want to see the difference between the Manhattan Toy version and the Haba version of these toy beads. To me, the Manhattan Toy beads are the original I’ve seen in stores and friends’ homes, and I was disappointed by how small the Haba beads were.

Manhattan Toy beads:
–Each ball is larger in size
–More balls
–More colors and smooth finish
–Well-made
–Entertain adults and kids because of their size and movement
–Overall large in size (bigger than my hand)
–My 11-month-old loves it and can easily play with it using both hands

Haba beads:
–Smaller beads
–Less beads on the string
–Less colorful, has two purples next to each other (which bothered me), and has some color-distortions in several beads
–Felt well-made, but the smaller size made it less fun to play with
–Fits better in a baby’s small hands but might be less entertaining as they grow up

If you’re looking for something that will entertain for years, I’d go with the Manhattan Toy beads. The Haba version will fit better in a diaper bag, but the smaller size isn’t as appealing to play with.

My 14 year old autistic daughter has had this product and loved it very much since she was a baby. It’s truly a wonderful fidget for autistic individuals. It honestly deserves 5 stars. Unfortunately, she lost hers on a day trip and so I ordered her a new one which the elastic holding the balls together promptly snapped within the day. This toy used to be very well made – it held up for 13 years! I understand it is made for babies so I guess it probably doesn’t need to be as sturdy as it used to – but for the cost, I expected it to be the very well made product as I had previously. It just breaks my heart to see my daughter has been walking around holding the balls trying desperately to get me to fix it… 🙁

How many beads are there? The elastic on ours wore out while our toddler was alone in his room and we need to make sure we found all the loose beads.
Answer: Hello Amazon Guest, the Classic Baby Beads should have 12 wooden balls. Please share the details of the elastic wearing out with our customer service department, including any images of the cord and how long you had it. Use the subject, ATTN MTC Product Design and e-mail to help@manhattantoy.com. Thank you!

Are the balls small enough to choke on in the event that one would come loose and fall off?
Answer: I don’t think so. They’re pretty big.

Are these glossy or matte in color?
Answer:

Hello Khiem Nguy, so sorry for this tardy response. Older versions of the Classic Baby Beads do have a glossy finish, but current inventories will have a matte finish. Older lots should now be purged from Amazon’s inventory. We will get the images removed that show the glossy version. (In either case, the hardened ??
