Grimm's

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ll admit that I am not really into the commercial side of Valentine’s Day, surely I don’t need an excuse to shower my special people with a bit of extra love? Even the littlest treasures can celebrate love all year around with this gorgeous find from Honeybee Toys, isn’t it delightful?

Grimm's Heart Blocks

Grimm’s Wooden Heart Blocks ($74, ages 12 months+) are made from smooth non-lacquered wood in bright rainbow colours. These beautiful heart-shaped blocks are an ideal size for little hands and designed for creative building fun.

Grimm's Heart SetStack them, sort them, line them up… it’s all about using your imagination and even the wooden storage ‘box’ can be taken apart to become part of your unique sculpture. This lovely Grimm’s building set is a wonderful fine motor skills exercise and would make a great timeless gift for young builders. I think it would look fabulous on display in a baby’s nursery, kids playroom or classroom too.

If you are a regular Hip little one reader you may have read before that I am one of the many mothers who has lost an unborn baby. I don’t usually share my personal story but I know there are so many mums out there who have gone through this too and it is something that will always stay with me and has defined me as a person and a mother. After losing our first baby in a missed miscarriage I was terrified of it happening again when I was carrying the twins. The doctors ordered plenty of checkups just so I could hear/see the babies, but there were still many times that I wish I could quickly hear that reassuring sound of a beating heart and I would have loved to have my very own doppler to use at home.

At Parents Like Us they know a lot of mums feel like this, which is why they stock a great selection of fetal dopplers so you can listen to your baby’s heart whenever you want in the comfort of your own home. With a Sonotech Fetal Doppler you can share those wonderful moment with your husband, children or other family and friends who would love to hear the heartbeat of your unborn baby from as early as 10-12 weeks.

There are different doppler models available in store ranging from the basic Sonotech Lite Fetal Doppler ($69) to the Sonotech Xpress Fetal Doppler ($89.90) and finishing with the top-of-the-line Sonotech Pro Fetal Doppler ($149.90). This last model has loads of amazing features like a TFT colour LCD with diagnostic graph display, out of range fetal heart rate alarm indicator, crystal clear sound with noise isolation (very important) and much more.

Your new Sonotech doppler conveniently connects to two sets of headphones and computer for listening to and recording of those wonderful, amazing moments of hearing your unborn baby’s heartbeat, movements and hiccups. All Sonotech dopplers ship free of charge with tracking and come complete with 250ml ultrasound gel and 12 months warranty directly through Parents Like Us.
