My next Chicco Tested For a Happiness blogger package has arrived with some fantastic products for Little I to put to the test.
The delivery included two toys from the Baby Senses range designed to help baby's sensory development. We received the seal and giraffe rattle teethers.
Suitable from 3mths, the toys are very colourful with appealing faces. This is key for engaging babies and encouraging interaction. The toys are very well made with smooth edges and are quite light making them idea for tiny hands.
Over the past couple of weeks Little I has been testing the rattles. The seal has a jelly tail which can be put in the fridge to soothe teething gums. This has been a big hit with Little I who is starting to cut her first teeth and most of the time she can be found chewing the tail. The handle on this rattle is thin making it very easy for baby to grasp. The rattly balls are actually pretty quiet so it is the perfect toy for taking to restaurants.
The giraffe is little heavier and the large head makes it a bit top heavy so it has taken her slightly longer to learn how to manoeuvre it but I can tell it has really helped her special awareness as she no longer bonks herself on the head with it! There are lots of things to chew on which is great and she particularly loves getting one of the nobbly bits into her mouth. She hasn't yet mastered spinning his head around to hear the sound but that is a new surprise to discover as she gets older and develops her coordination.
Now she is sitting up we have been placing her toys in a semi circle in front of her so she can pick and choose what she plays with. She gravitates towards these rattles everything and gets annoyed if she can't reach them. Little I definitely recommends these rattles!
