Big Baby Shower – Day 22
One of the first toys we purchased for our twins was a Lamaze pram toy, a colourful little dangly friend that kept them entertained when out and about. We have added quite a few Lamaze toys to our collection since then and with every child we gained a few more. I am already thinking about which character to get our new baby when he/she arrives later this year!
Lamaze Play & Grow toys (RRP $19.95 each) are fun, friendly soft toys that are made for little hands and inquisitive minds. They are suitable from birth onwards so they make a great baby shower gift.
Play & Grow toys are full of bright colours, quirky sounds, interesting textures and shapes so young children can discover while they play. Rusty the Robot, Jacque the Peacock, Bella the Bunny, Mortimer the Moose… with almost 20 different designs to choose from there is a perfect Play & Grow buddy for everyone. I especially love the handy pram clip, no more dropped/lost toys and baby will always have his/her favourite friend within reach.
The award winning Lamaze Octotunes (0-24 months, RRP $29.95) has been around for a few years, the colours may have changed a little over time but the concept is still the same and it is still a big hit with little ones at different stages. Babies will love looking at the bright colours and patterns, exploring the different textures and feeling the knots, while older babies and toddlers can use Octotunes to practise their colours.
Of course the most popular feature of Octotunes are its eight musical tentacles. By squeezing the legs each tentacle produces a different note, encouraging children to use their hands, train their muscles and listen to the sounds. Believe it or not but you can actually ‘play’ popular nursery rhymes like Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star and Mary had a little Lamb (find the right notes/colours in the manual) using Octotunes, how cool is that?
Lamaze Developmental Toys are available at Target, Big W, Toys R’Us, Baby Bunting and all good independent baby retailers across Australia.
