Jenson is growing up way too quickly for my liking. He’s already so close to rolling over, he tries to pull himself up to sitting and he is into everything! He loves watching his big brothers playing around and you can just see it in his eyes how eager he is to be up and playing with them! When you put him under his play gym he kicks about like he’s doing an Irish jig and if you put a musical/light up/moving toy next to him he’ll stare at it; smiling away and even trying to reach for it! Seriously kid, slow down!
I didn’t think I’d need to start getting toys out for him anytime soon but our living room has quickly become a whirlwind of light up, vibrating, tune playing havoc and it’s so amazing to sit back with a cuppa watching Jasper and Rhys playing with their train tracks and Jenson cooing away to his toys … for 5 minutes until a train is launched at a head and a child is crying!
Today I’ve teamed up with Little Tikes to share with you some fab toys that Jenson has been loving. First up is the Light ‘n Go Wobblin’ Lights Panda a motion sensitive wobbly panda that is designed to inspire your baby to get moving. All baby needs to do is tap it for it to play one of 10 happy tunes and sound effects as well as projecting different light patterns onto the floor around it. As they get older they can push and spin it to activate the same noises and lights but for Jensons age it’s perfect as he’s just at the age where a tap is doable! It’s suitable from birth upwards and even Jasper likes to spin it for Jenson … okay for himself … okay he runs off with it and plays with it by himself much to Jensons dismay! It’s a fa one not only to keep your little one entertained but to help develop their sensory and motor skills as well as tot each cause and effect.
Next up is the Tummy Tunes Giraffe perfect for, as the name suggests, tummy time! This is fab because not only is it interactive with piano keys but it’s soft and cuddly. It has two modes, the first plays music and the second is piano mode where bambino can play their own merry tunes!
Even though it’s a great toy to promote stretching and reaching on their front it can be enjoyed just as much whilst laying on their backs and as they get older sitting up. The Tummy Time Giraffe also has a ladybird squeaker, rings to grab and bat-at and a mirror for playing peek-a-boo! This is another one of Jensons toys that Jasper takes great pride in demonstrating to him and then running off with!
Last but not least is the Jitter ‘n Whirl Monkey which is one of my favourite types of toys for babies because you can take it pretty much anywhere without the risk of losing it! The link attaches to carseats, play gyms, cots or even our latest find – baby carriers so bambino can bring the fun with them and if they drop it, it hangs around! When you pull the ring the Jitter ‘n Whirl Monkey jitters and spins it’s wheel which not only provides sensory fun but promotes eye tracking too! It has crinkly leaves for baby to discover making it not only visually but auditory stimulating!
