Any ideas for a good toy that lets little kickers kick to their heart's content?

My 3.5 month old DS is having a great time learning to kick his chubby legs. I want to get him a toy or something that he can kick at and get a response, like a baby gym with sounds and lights. I've looked at a few, but get mixed reviews. Does anyone have one they've used with their LO that they really liked and worked well? What were the pros/cons?

  • My DIL had the arched padded thing that went over the baby's head and she would attach a chiming toy at the area near his feet. It was fun to watch his reaction when he kicked it! And because it was a chime, it was a "gentle" noise. I'll try to find a link

  • A ball is a great toy, and interactive too! My son loved to kick a ball, as long as it came back. Good luck!

  • ME! kids have all loved to kick at their momma. I never bought any "kicking" type toys because they are outgrown SOO fast

  • Yeah... I've looked at some of the adjustable ones that "grow" with your kid, but they don't get such great reviews. But I only have a couple hand me down things and DS is getting bored! I would like something with lights and/or sound that he can activate with his movements. And he loves to kick...
