Baby toys are starting to take my house over. I thought it was bad enough with the fire trucks I trip over at 2am or those stupid match box cars… but they have competition.
There are teething toys, stuffed animals, rattles, light up and sing things… oh and that evil dog that always starts singing by itself in the middle of the night. You know the one, because we all have it in our house! Scares the living crap out of us…
This week we got a package of toys from Mamas and Papas to review and Addie couldn’t have been happier. You can tell when she likes a toy, because of her level of interest. I have bought some toys in the past that she looked at and never wanted to even touch! I guess she is really picky already, just like Mommy!
These… it was like a little kid on Christmas morning, I imagine I will see that look again come December!
The toys included Malvin Mouse, Bits and Bots (for the stroller), Fido (which I swear is her favorite), and Claribel Cow. They are all soft toys in various forms, perfect for her at 5 months old right now. Lately her favorite toys are cloth, fabric, or soft. While she is teething I am guessing they feel really good on her gums.
Claribel cow has a name tag included which has her own nursery rhyme on it. It is great as a gift, decoration for a room, or just your run of the mill toy for your infant. And it is a toy that can really grow with your kids. I can certainly see Addison being attached as she gets older. My older children have also had fun playing with Claribel with Addie.
Bits and Bots, and Fido are our take along toys. Fido hangs nicely from a stroller, crib, or any places else you may want to hang a toy for your little one to play with. I can say Addie is most entertained by Fido because of the classic bell inside it. While Bits and Bots hang right across a stroller. While you are cruising through the mall, or just out for a walk your baby can play. I know with Addison this is becoming a life saver because she isn’t interested in napping in the stroller, and is becoming more alert and in need of stimulation while we are out and about. These work perfect!
Malvin Mouse just like Claribel Cow comes with his own removable tag and nursery rhyme. Which is a great touch for a baby shower gift, or room decoration. With the classic and simple nursery designs that are becoming increasingly popular. It would also be a great idea for a barn yard type theme.
Two big thumbs up, not just from me, but from Addison too! I think today any toy is really her best friend though.
Now you can enter to win a random barn yard toy from Mamas and Papas yourself!
