John Lewis Sweet Shape Stacker Toy
I bought this for my granddaughter and she loves it.She has endless fun playing with the rings. She is too young to stack it, but loves to watch and listen to the music.
The comment about it being rude is a bit silly.By the time a baby outgrows it, they would have no idea what it looks like!

We recieved this toy as a present from our daughters grandmother and of course as others have suggested the toy looks rather innocent in its box with all the rings on it so she did not knowingly purchase the items knowing the secret it hid.
It was only until all the rings were removed did both myself and my wife realise the toy was not quite all it seemed and promptly threw away the base as it was just to unsettling to see our 6 month old play with the toy. We did keep the rings.
John Lewis really need to consider a redesign of this product otherwise I can only conclude there is something odd going on in the design department .
Unlike others we did not find it funny just plain unsavory given the target market

Daughter loves this
I must confess, having read the other review on this toy I was intrigued. So I bought it for my daughter, and I'm glad I did, she loves it. Yes, without the rings it does resemble something rather naughty, but my daughter is only 5 months old so it doesn't really bother her, and it gives visiting friends a good laugh. The reason I'm glad I bought it is because it plays lots of different music, which is easy for her to get playing, she loves the flashing light on top of it, and the rings make good teething rings too. All in all its a good toy.

Not quite what you'd expect
I bought this toy as I thought it was a nice variation on the traditional stacking toy with it's music and flashing light. However, when you remove all the rings (which are good teething rings on their own) the remaining visual impact of the 'candle' is quite unsettlingly suggestive. I have shown the toy to a number of other people - both young and my age - and everybody's reaction has been the same as mine, without fail.
As it is a John Lewis own brand product I feel that JL have not done themselves a favour with this particular toy. Somebody clearly had not thought it through.
