On safari with LeapFrog

And then he was one… As much as I wish it wasn’t true our little Ted is no longer a baby. In the blink of an eye he turned into an adventurous boy who walks everyone, climbs on everything and loves exploring the house. He walks so quietly that you don’t even hear him coming (or going) so I could really do with an extra pair of eyes! Thankfully this LeapFrog birthday gift does an excellent job keeping him entertained so I can quickly get some jobs done:

The LeapFrog Learning Safari Playspace (RRP $99.95, ages 6-36 months) is super versatile educational toy that is designed for growing babies, offering a range of ways to play and learn at different ages and stages. This made it a perfect birthday gift for Ted (and great value for money) as I know it will be enjoyed over and over again.

The Learning Safari Playspace features a sweet selection of animal friends who love teaching your baby new things. Simply press the large buttons to learn about numbers and letters (and watch them pop up on the digital light up screen), practise your colours, turn on the chameleon’s magical rainbow light, discover animal facts spin the beads and much more. Each action helps little explorers work on important motor skills whilst having fun (smile and get smarter!).

Babies can (p)lay underneath the large arch and watch the colours, lights and dangling leaves (when you pull each leaf you hear the corresponding number), they can crawl through it or pull up and stand next to it, great practice for those developing leg muscles. You can even lay the arch flat to transform it into a ‘table’ for baby to sit at. Ted loves showing off his talent for the piano (not only do the piano keys play music, they teach shapes too) but he loves it even more to sit ON the piano so we might keep the arch up for a while longer!

From laying down to sitting up, from crawling to standing and beyond, the Learning Safari Playspace will challenge little minds and help young children develop new skills as they get older. From the moment we unpacked and set up this fun new toy Ted has been intrigued by it, he loves the bright colours, enjoys the sounds and songs and his absolute favourite part is the ball slide.

The Learning Safari Playspace comes with three coloured balls that roll through the monkey’s tail down the slide, it even counts the number of balls as you insert them. Seeing the balls disappear down that mysterious hole and finding out where they will reappear next is a perfect cause and effect exercise and Ted can’t get enough of it.

Get Go

Getting dressed in the bedroom, doing the washing in the laundry, brushing the girls’ hair in the bathroom, putting clothes away in the wardrobe, making lunch in the kitchen… these everyday tasks are normally quick and easy, except when you have a cheeky 7-month old who is on the move…

Get Go Ball Pit 5

Harriet is getting around pretty speedy these days so I need to make sure I have an eye on her all the time. Instead of lugging around a heavy highchair or bulky rocker to entertain her we’ve found a super fun, fast and featherlight solution to keep her happy so I can quickly get things done.

Get Go Ball Pit 3

The ‘Get Go’ Ball Pit Bag (RRP $59.95, 6 months+) by Worlds Apart is a light-weight pop-up ball pit that provides instant fun for little ones. It is a great all-in-one design that is a breeze to set-up and can be packed away in a flash too with all balls neatly tucked inside. The bag closes using four simple press studs and when you undo them the ball pit almost automatically pops open, it even has a handle so you can carry it with ease.

Get Go Ball Pit 2

When folded the Ball Pit Bag is nice and compact but it surprising spacious when opened up, there is even room for two babies to play together so it’s perfect for little visitors! The older kids like playing with Hattie from the sidelines too by putting balls through the holes on the side and returning any balls that have escaped (thankfully she is not into throwing just yet!). The sides are the perfect height to keep the balls in whilst allowing the child to easily peek over the edge and keep an eye on mum.

Get Go Ball Pit 4
The Ball Pit Bag comes ready-to-play with 50 coloured balls, this leaves more than enough room for your baby to comfortably sit or lay in the ball pit and move around. Of course you can always add another layer of fun by adding more balls, these can be purchased separately.
