Manhattan Baby Stimulation Toys

I always envy my fellow bloggers who have their own business. For example, Merry from Patch of Puddles has her own toys and crafts shop. She must be a very busy mum! She was kind enough to send Clay some Manhattan baby stimulation toys from her shop to review.

The first one (see above picture) is a pair of reversible wrist rattles (£8.95). I always wanted these for my babes but for some reason we never bought them (toy shops are very distracting!). They are soft, with lots of patterns and they are reversible as well. Clay is probably a bit old for these, but he absolutely love biting at the little ribbons. Even Abby likes to wear them on her wrists!

We were also sent one of their best selling toy - Orbit Baby Beads Wooden Toy (£8.95). It's a tactile toy where babies can shape it in anyway they want to.

The toy is suitable for 3 months plus, but I think it's slightly on the heavy side (they are solid wooden beads after all!). It took Clay some time to get into playing with this toy, perhaps because there were too many distractions at home. He did like to wave it about and even tried to bite the beads. Abby kept thinking that it's a bracelet and it's not suitable for boys!


Disclosure: I was given the above toys for reviewing purpose; all opinions are honest and my own
