Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves it! We got this book as a gift when my son was 7 months old. At 7 months old he enjoyed us reading it to him but would not really reach to touch. Starting around 8-9 months old he started touching the pages and now at almost 1 years old it's one of his favourite books. He absolutely loves it. However, as another reviewer said, the plastic binding kind of book is not the greatest as my son has already successfully ripped pages.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cute touch and feel book this is a really good touch and feel book and something that's a bit different than the other books like it out there. The price was a bit high for it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fun but not sturdy #plumreview My daughter and I really like reading this one together, but it isn't very sturdy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Very Sturdy I have loved this story and book for many years but the quality now is lacking and it is not very sturdy. Is ok for a gentle child but if you have an excited little one this may not be the best book for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Addition to Child's Library Interactive touch and feel book. Wonderful gift for first time parents.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute touch and feel book I have the spiral binded book. It feels a little flimsy so I worry it may fall apart with repeated use. My 7 month old doesn't quite understand all the touch and feel features yet but he seems to like the pictures. The story is simple and I can imagine older kids getting a kick out of the mini book and 'trying on mommy's ring'. There are probably better options for a touch and feel book or even a better story book. It's an okay buy if it's on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift I received this at my baby shower and while my DD couldn't enjoy it until she got a little older she LOVES it now. It "speaks" to different development stages. She enjoyed listening and looking when she was one and at 18 months got excited to touch and smell. The mirror was her favourite and now at 2 years she loves the ring hole and "trying on mummy's ring". Definitely a great gift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun tactile book! What a fun little tactile book. We were gifted this when my son was born and I thoroughly enjoy reading this to him as I had never read this book before. There's lots of different interaction - peek-a-boo, touch and feel, smell and a mirror.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but go for the Deluxe version I read reviews about Pat the Bunny before purchasing it. True, Pat the bunny is a good classic; it does not disappoint in its offering of activity and various textures. However, ignore the reviewer who said to get the Original version rather than the Deluxe because of the white spiral binding on the Deluxe version. Ugh - that's the kind used with the Original version as well. For $2 more, you can have two additional pages added to your classic. I've kept my current one since I had already punctured the plastic covering the gift box. I regret not getting the Deluxe edition. The pages aren't stiff like that of board books, which would have been more durable and nice. Otherwise, a nice book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Our son loves this book. He especially likes playing peek-a-boo with Paul. As someone else said this book does have a plastic coil in it. Our does not fall apart. However our son does like to sneak his little fingers in there and pull the coils out of the pages. It is easy to fix but annoying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy the deluxe edition (bad binding construction)! I'm a fan of 'the bunny," too, recall reading it to my children decades ago and my daughter was happy I'd bought it for her babies. Plus I bought a second one for another grandchild. The story-line and the lovely touchy-feelie contents are the same, but the construction of the deluxe edition is unacceptable. Both books are going back ASAP. The binding is a flimsy plastic coil so the entire contents fell out in my hand when I opened the book; then individual pages scattered when my husband opened the second book. I have already recommended to C-I that they discontinue the sale of this edition until the flaw is corrected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pat the Bunny I remember having this book at home when I was a little girl and I'm 20 years old. My mom had this book for my brothers and I and I remember how much I loved this book. My mom bought it as baby gifts for many of our friends and family when they had children because we kids enjoyed it so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for toddlers This book really got my daughter into loving books. She especially loves to play peek a boo with Paul! I've bought it several times for gifts for other kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pat the Bunny Proving I am never too old for any book, I recently picked up a copy of this adorable classic. With faint memories surfacing as I leafed through this interactive baby book, I enjoyed every minute of remembering the pages. Perfect for literally any age, this book allows even very young children to interact with each page in the book. A perfect gift as a first book, the Pat the Bunny stuffed animal is also available to compliment the book. Needless to say, the bunny is also now sitting on my shelf at home!
