Disclosure: My friend Laura received the following for review. All opinions are her own.
Seeing my now 2-month-old baby girl’s eyes light up with excitement is one of the best things. Ever. I’m always trying to put new things in front of her to get her to smile so I can see the twinkle in her eyes! Over the past few days, we’ve been checking out various toys from The Manhattan Toy Company, and there is something special about their toys!
If only I could have captured the smile on my baby girl’s face when I first put the super soft and cute Woodland Bellamy Bunny in front of her! It was the first time she really grabbed onto a stuffie and snuggled with it – that alone made this bunny a winner in my book! The bunny also comes with an attached rattle ring, which I’m sure will make this plush even more enjoyable for her as she grows. At just $16 each, the Woodland animal collection (they also have Woodland Felix Fox and Woodland Oakley Owl) is an easy choice when I think about adding a stuffed animal to a baby gift!
We also played with the Woodland Babies Felix Fox Stroller Toy, which is soft to the touch, has crinkle ears, a rattle ball that pulls down, sensory and teething rings, and a tail that jiggles when you pull on it! I loved that, although it has several features, it isn’t overwhelming – they’re not in your face or over the top, and will allow your baby to discover the fun on their own! This would be a great toy for when you’re on-the-go in the stroller, or even attached to a play mat arch. To top it off, this adorable fox is priced at just $16!
Another great toy from The Manhattan Toy Company is The Jellybean – Patterns animal set. They are so adorable! I love the simplicity of them, yet they still have engaging features: they’re cute, have rings that my baby girl could easily grab onto, and they jingle and jiggle when you pull down on them! Each one comes with a C-shaped clip that is the perfect balance of flexible yet sturdy (I can’t tell you how many “stroller toys” I can’t get to easily clip onto the stroller or that I’m afraid will break!). At $11 each, they are perfectly priced!
I often feel that baby toys are too many things balled up into a single toy and can sometimes be overwhelming for babies, so these toys were pleasantly appealing for me and baby girl! I’m looking forward to checking out what else The Manhattan Toy Company has to offer!
