AListBaby Loves: Fisher-Price Snugabunny

We have reviewed a lot of baby swingsthis past month…and we have our favorite. The Fisher-Price Snugabunny! Outside of your arms, we think its the perfect place to be from birth until baby can climb out (or 25 pounds!). It is smooth, quiet…and babies love it.

It Soothes
• Soothing music and alternate swinging motions help calm baby and promotes a sense of security.
• Plush fabrics enhance baby’s sense of security by providing comfort.
• Seeing baby’s own image in the mirror encourages self-recognition, enhancing emotional development.

It Engages
• Seeing baby’s own reflection and other objects in mirrored globe stimulates baby’s visual sense.
• Rich fabrics and textures stimulate baby’s tactile sense.
• Watching and anticipating motion of birdies fosters overhead visual tracking skills.
• Listening to nature sounds as well as musical selections strengthens auditory skills.

It’s Perfect for Mom

• Choice of three positions in one swing—variety for baby and convenience when you want baby facing you!
• Easy to convert from one position to another.
• Folds for storage and portability.
• Plug-in option saves money on batteries!

AND…it looks cute! We are quite simply in love with this baby swing.

Holiday Gifts: Ride-On Toys

How CUTE is it when baby learns how to stand up, and is able to toddle around with the help of mom or dad? With a toy like the Fisher-Price Stride to Ride Dinosaur, baby can zip around the family room floor as mom and dad watch! Fisher-Price sent us this product for free to review, and we decided to write about it because it is a quality product with plenty of bells and whistles to keep baby occupied for hours. After baby outgrows the “push” feature…the dinosaur turns into a ride-on toy. That sounds like a lot of backyard fun in the summertime, right?! Retails for $40.

Essential Toys for Baby

Every generation has their iconic toys. The Fisher-Price Chatter Phone comes to mind from my baby days…do you recall a favorite baby toy?

While I also adore the look of sleek, modern playthings, there is a place in my heart for the retro feel of these four basic toys. They each come in many styles and designs….yet their look is always timeless. These selections are all from Land of Nod.
