    Product display of wooden alphabet blocks.

    These are just like the sturdy wood blocks you played with as a child, but even more fascinating! Not only do the blocks have the letters of the alphabet, they also have a math symbol or number and an animal printed on the blocks. Each of the 28 blocks has four letters, two of them embossed for an extra visual and tactile treat. The last two sides have a little extra learning boost with a delightful animal and number or mathematical process symbol. Each block is brightly printed with non-toxic inks and finely crafted of smooth wood for years of play. Not only a favorite of very young children who love to build walls and towers from the blocks.

    But, these blocks will provide entertainment as children grow and learn the alphabet. Older children can form words, work simple math problems, ponder the animals on the blocks, and continue using them to build. Long after other toys are abandoned, these classic embossed wooden alphabet blocks remain a favorite toy as a child grows. Larger than most other wooden blocks, these are 44mm or 1.8 inches per side. Easy to grasp, easy to stack, they will be sure to delight baby and provide continuous enjoyment as baby grows.

    August 3rd, 2020

    Product review of baby play gym.

    Know a little adventurer that could use some tummy time? Check out the Fisher-Price Rainforest Melodies & Lights Deluxe Gym, a Baby Play Gym that features an adorable rainforest theme that is suitable for either a boy or a girl. The soft, padded floor panel will keep baby comfortable while playing with the overheard plush toy mobile. For extra entertainment, babies can listen to music and sounds from nature while watching baby-safe lights dance and play. This baby play gym set includes several soft play toys such as a monkey, toucan and elephant, which can all be attached to various places on the mat.

    According to the reviews I researched, there are a few major disappointments concerning this baby play gym. Many remarked that the mat lacked enough toys to keep their babies interested and that their babies quickly grew bored with it. Another common complaint is that the mobile does not spin on its own, others mentioned that this play gym seemed cheap and that they expected more for the high price. Complaints aside, the majority of those who reviewed this product gave it 4-5 stars, saying that their babies loved playing on it and after all, that is what it’s all about!

    June 18th, 2020

    Small product picture of baby trampoline review.

    Every kid should have a baby trampoline in the home! These fun-filled toys are perfect for expending energy and fit compactly in a playroom or basement. The Alex Little Jumpers Trampoline holds up to 70 pounds and features a padded frame, soft foam handle and no-slip rubber feet. To use, kids stand on the trampoline, hold onto the handlebar and start jumping up and down. The baby trampoline includes a bungee cord and when not in use, the legs can be folded up for compact storage. The Alex Little Jumpers Trampoline is one of few trampolines on the market designed for kids and remains a top choice for parents.

    It has excellent reviews and parents are satisfied with how quickly the product is to assemble, its durability and the level of fun it delivers to kids. Some parents have chosen the Galt Folding Trampoline instead, only to find that this product is less durable and has had some issues with the bungee cord snapping. For a similar price and a brighter design, the Alex baby trampoline is an exceptional buy. Not only do young kids enjoy the baby trampoline for playtime, but many online reviewers found this to be a great product for developing kids’ gross motor skills. The only concern that parents have had is in regards to the feet appearing unstable. Although none of the online reviewers had issues with the indoor toddler trampoline tipping over, some feared that it could happen with excessive jumping. Overall, this is a great toy that will get your kids the exercise they need – rain or shine!

    Small product picture of a baby float review.

    If you have small children in your home and a pool in your backyard, you should consider buying this baby float. The Swimways Baby Spring Float Canopy claims to be a safe and fun alternative for children who are playing out of doors. For those families with pools, having a young children constantly clinging to the parents can remove a sense of growing independence from children, remove their potential for exercise, and take away the fun that the parents might otherwise have trying to relax in the pool. With this new baby pool float, babies can rest in the pool with parents, toys in hand, protected from the sun.

    For children who are around thirty inches long and weighing around twenty pounds, this is the perfect play toy. Young children who might otherwise be too small for such a toy are perfect for this one. This is perfect for children even if they cannot hold themselves up yet because they can lean forward over the inflatable cushion which is provided and then place their arms out of both sides. With the convenient mash ring children can keep their toys next to them, within arms reach for when they want to play with them or put them back. Understanding the risks of skin cancer and over exposure to the sun for small children, this toy comes with a safety canopy which covers small children completely from the sun. Young children are able to kick their legs to move around and therefore get a lot of exercise.
