We really enjoyed playing with the Miffy Soft Play House. It has plenty of bits and bobs attached to it to keep babies occupied for long periods and the different sounds, textures and colours provide plenty of sensory stimulation. Plus, it’s designed in the retro Miffy style so parents can enjoy a bit of nostalgia. All in all, this was a definite hit with us.
Jojo is a rabbit who drives around in his car, playing music and talking. If he bumps into something then he is ejected from his car.
thought the Little Bird Told Me Bumble Bee Activity Toy was a nicely packaged, good sized soft toy suitable for a new born. It’s colorful but not too garish, in this day and age that makes a nice change. This is one of those toys that is classified age group 0+, but really only interests children up to the age of about 1. It has lots of features aimed at stimulating a baby, much better than your average cuddly toy!
From the moment the Little Bird Told Me Curious Caterpillar Activity Pull-Along toy arrived we all fell head over heels in love with it. Not only is it exceptionally cute, it’s lovely and soft, makes a pleasing rattle and is really unusual. The packaging gives it quite a wholesome feel which made it seem really quite special.
There are so many cot toys on the market it’s hard to know what to choose, but the Bruin musical activity centre shows you don’t necessarily have to spend a fortune. This centre is really competitively priced with lots of different sounds and activities. It’s colourful and fits easily onto the side of a cot. If you don’t want it on the cot it can be taken off and played with quite easily. A must have cot toy.
The Lamaze Chime Garden is a really cute toy for older babies. It’s suitable from 6 months, and consists of a series of plastic and fabric flowers, that light up and play music when your baby touches them. I thought it was the sort of thing that looks good in the nursery and it has a very good quality and educational feel about it.
It’s a lovely looking toy, very soft and has a great little rattle inside. It comes in a presentation box and doesn’t have any unnecessary packaging. BG was initially drawn to the elephant but then got bored with it quickly.
The VTech Sail and Steer was nice and bright with lots of flashing lights, and music. I was pleased that it was very easy to assemble without many fiddly bits. And thrilled I didn’t need to buy batteries for it – score!
Nice pink girly cubes which conveniently stack into the biggest one, saving space in the toy box. Each cube has a special feature such as beads to shake, a mirror or some gears to spin. These features make them slightly different to the usual stacking cubes.
A classic toy, we loved the look of the Glow Worm, it was 100% retro fabulous. The red light provided just the right amount of light. You don’t have to press too hard for the lullaby and light to work, which means that even the littlest people can do it. The fabric was a nice calm combination of green and pink is satisfyingly soft for a cuddle.
A great value gift for babies under one, with plenty to explore and a really lovely quality – friends tell us their Whoozits have lasted intact until their little ones are at school.
We chose the Vintage Musical Elephant Pull Toy as it only had a minimal amount of plastic, and we chose well. It’s the first toy our daughter engaged with and actually tried to grab. The ‘soothing melody’ seems to soothe her, but doesn’t quite do the job for us parents.
One of a new range of toys from Silver Cross, this Rufus Rabbit pull-along toy is designed in a gorgeous vintage style and comes beautifully packaged. Once you’ve fought with the usual ties and fastenings to free it from the box you are left with this fabric bunny and his collection of miscellaneous velcroed, pull-apart vegetables in his pull-along cart.
The Pure Love Bunny Hug Pillow is another lovely product from Natures Purest and encouraged us to check out their site – next on our wish list is definitely the bunting collection, which is just gorgeous! This product is amazing quality, from an environmentally friendly and ethical supplier. We couldn’t have asked for anything we – or our baby – would love more.
These beautiful activity bricks from Pure Love aren’t something Mums would tend to buy for themselves but the soft feel, quality packaging and organic credentials make them a perfect gift for newborns. They’re a perfect way to introduce little ones to letters and numbers, but they’re pretty enough to put on a shelf away from curious fingers!
The ELC Twistasaurus would make a great gift for an under three. This dinosaur stacking toy kept Toddler Boy (2.5 years) amused for a fairly long time and even attracted baby Fifi (9 months). It seems a reasonable price for what it is, and I would definitely buy it for others.
The Jojo Maman Bebe animal cubes are a really good value for money set – the design really is gorgeous, and the addition of the patterns and numbers mean that these can be used for education as well as fun as your little one gets older – a great idea.
The My First Lacing Tools set is a lovely present for a young child, and one that gives you a lot of toy for your money. It’s going to get lots of play, and is robust enough to still be around for the next child.
The Silver Cross Rufus Rabbit shape sorter is a lovely toy: it looks funky and definitely keeps BG’s attention. A great toy to grow with, and a perfect gift for new babies and toddlers.
great toy to use for a short time. If like me, you have a child that doesn’t like tummy time very much this will isn’t quite a miracle but in our house it was enough to keep a lively baby entertained for more minutes than usual, encouraging him to play on their tummy, and (hopefully) help him to strengthen those muscles!
The Baby Whoozit seems to be a perfect toy for a small baby, and one that will probably keep being of interest for a good few months, perhaps even past the crawling stage. There’s lots to explore, it’s beautifully made and a fantastic price. We love it!
