Toy and entertainment recommendations

Mamas and Papas babyplay octopus This was given as a gift. She really enjoys playing with this toy in the car. It is multi-sensory and she loves it. Enough said!

Gigglebellies We were introduced to this by someone in a restaurant who kindly entertained Amelia with it on their phone when she was a but grumbly. The concept – highly colourful, animated animals and images accompanied by reworked nursery rhymes such as The wheels on the bus. This is great for entertaining Amelia for a few minutes, such as when I’m making up her breakfast. They can be found on youtube.

Chicco Baby Band Walker the latest addition to her collection! Since she likes to be stood we got this for her. We use it in the kitchen and she will play in it for 10-15minutes at a time. It’s good for if I’m doing some food preparation. She enjoys being able to move about and inspect cupboard door handles, and it makes lots of noises too!

Early Learning Centre blossom farm tummy time roller really great toy for encouraging tummy time and lifting their chest up. Soft and has some ‘scrunchy’ sounding areas and other additions to chew on and hold on to.
