Must have Baby Gifts from Summer Infant

Disclosure- We received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own and honest.

As you know by now I have another little one at home. Finding toys and items that are perfect for them can sometimes be tricky. I must admit that everything I have from Summer Infant that I have used with the all 3 of my daughters have been some of our favorite items.

About Mommies Melodies Bear:

You can now soothe your little one easily to sleep with Mommies Melodies. This endearing character is super soft and features 6 lullabies, nature, and womb sounds. The Cry Activated Module turns on your last setting when baby wakes up. The hook and loop strap lets baby take this soft and cuddly companion on the go. It conveniently hooks on cribs, strollers, car seats, bassinets, playards, and more.

My Thoughts: With the constant movement of a house with 3 children it is helpful to have the wonderful Mommies Melodies. I love that there are 6 lullabies, nature, and womb sounds to choose from. I must admit however that my absolute favorite feature of the Mommies Melodies is definitely the Cry Activated Module. I love that it starts working again at just the right moment 🙂

About Kiddopotamus Jiggypotamus:

The Jiggypotamus is the perfect toy to get your baby movin’ and groovin’! Just give him a squeeze and he will giggle and shake all around to excite and entice your baby. This little guy will have everyone laughing and playing in no time, not to mention creeping and crawling! Hip Hipp – O – Ray!

My Thoughts: What a fun and cute toy. My daughter absolutely loves to play and dance with her Jiggypotamus. This is a very fun toy for any child to play with and will definitely brighten their mood.

Must Have Baby Toys from Brain Builders

Disclosure- We received the below in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are our own and honest.

With a baby it’s always important to find ways to stimulate them just the right amount. I must say that with these amazing toys from Brain Builders we have been 100% satisfied.

 About People Toy Company:

This beloved Japanese company started in 1977 and has finally arrived in the U.S. and set People Toy Company with a pedigree product line. The company’s three core offerings are Brain Builders, Mochi, and People Block series. People Toy Company proudly creates fun and educational baby products for the discerning parent. The Mochi series is the winner of the prestigious 2015 Kids Design Award.

About Baby Senses Coordinator:

This toy is great for ages 2 Months and up.

At 8 weeks old baby is ready to follow the colorful beads that move left and right. A wonderful milestone is when the eyes and ears can start to concentrate and focus as parents and grandparents play along. A baby at that age is also ready to improve motor skills as they learn to grip and coordinate the beads rolling back and forth by themselves.

About Educational Eddie Rattle:

Baby Maternity Magazine 2016 Toy of the Year Award

This rattle is a perfect size for baby’s tiny fingers to grasp all by themselves. The multi sense rattle has a variety of fun shapes and textures to satisfy baby’s developmental needs. There is a chewable rope, teething feet, hinged limbs, and a soft ripple hate all made to stimulate the senses both in the mouth and in the hands.

This is great for children 5 months and up.

About Baby Yoga Exercise Ball:

This little elephant will keep baby limber and flexible because it’s so easy for baby to grasp. The soft and washable ball makes  soothing rustling and a bell sound to perk up those ears.

This toy is great for children 4 months and up.

My Thoughts:

I must first tell you that these three toys have quickly became favorites of my youngest, however, it has been very hard for me to get pictures of her as she is now almost always on the go. I am greatly impressed with each of these toys. They are basic simple toys that my child truly loves. I love that they are basic made toys that are made to stimulate your baby at just the right amount. I get so disappointed when you get toys that definitely overstimulate your small child and aren’t truthfully doing them any good. These are definitely must have baby toys in my book and I will be sharing them at future baby showers.

Must have Playmat from Finn & Emma

Disclosure- We received the below in order to facilitate this review.  All opinions are our own. For more information, see “I Disclose”.

Finding the perfect items for when you have a baby is very important. I am very picky about letting my child play on the ground of other people’s houses. I always try to take a blanket or something with me so that my child won’t get all the yucky floor germs on them when we are at other places. The Playmat from Finn & Emma is an absolute must have.

About Finn & Emma:

At Finn & Emma, they live in the balance of stylish and sustainable, classic and contemporary, whimsical and sophisticated. Boring designs and toxic chemicals are a thing of the past while modern colors, fresh prints, and heirloom quality construction are abundant.

Sustainability is bountiful too. Only the finest 100% organic cotton, eco friendly dyes, and all natural wood will do for your little munchkin, and they’ve got plenty. On top of that, their garments and accessories are produced in fair trade settings that focus on social and economic independence for local people, women especially, working to provide for their families in a safe and fair environment.

They love style as much as they love sustainability, and in the land of Finn & Emma, there’s no reason to choose between the two.

About the PlayMat:

This wonderful playmat is not only the perfect match to the Play Gym, but also a great entertainment by itself when attaching toys to the loops of the mat. The play mat is made from super soft organic cotton and non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes. The light padding makes it also a perfect changing mat or stroller liner as well.

  • 100% G.O.T.S. certified
  • Eco-friendly and non-toxic dyes
  • Loops to attach play gym toys
  • Machine Washable
  • Size: 23″x34″

My Thoughts:

Love!  I absolutely love this amazing product. My daughter loves it as well 🙂  I have used it a great deal at home, but now that she is a little older we seem to be more on the go than we used to be. I now keep this wonderful playmat in the car so that I have it at my hands no matter where we are at. I love that it is padded so that no matter what surface we are on, I know that it is still soft for her. I also happen to be the mother of a spitter 🙂  and I love that I can toss it in the washing machine when I get home and have it ready to go the next time that I need it.

My daughter loves playing with the Crinkly Raccoon both on her carseat and even more fun when she is laying on her tummy time mate. She loves to stare at the wonderful pictures on the bottom of the raccoon as well as to look at his sweet face.

The Discovery Arch is absolutely amazing. I have been so excited to give this a try. My daughter is a little young to play much, but she sure has enjoyed looking at the new toys and seeing all that she will soon have right at her fingertips. We are on the go a lot so I love that I can use the discovery arch in the stroller as well as the carseat. I love the easy portability of this awesome product.
