I got a Spiel & Holz birthday ring last winter, and was able to use it the first time for DS’s birthday a few months ago. He was very excited about it and enjoyed playing with the figures and blowing out the beeswax candles, etc. We have the 16 hole rainbow ring, with a star candle holder for the middle. I bought the number figures for this year’s birthday and bought two additional figures. I plan on adding a new number figure and a new regular figure each year for each child.
However, on a crafting note, I just wanted to share this idea for making one yourself instead of purchasing one. I just ran across this photo on Flickr. How cool is this birthday ring?? We already have the ring, but maybe I’ll try to make some figures for next year’s birthdays instead of buying them.
Three Sisters Toys has a nice write-up on using birthday rings in your family celebrations.
