Give Christmas Away disclaimer


Since we have a feature up for generous brands that have sent us toys for the Children’s Home and one for the fun games in our Christmas Gift Guide, here’s our dedicated round-up of baby toys, dedicated to the brands that have sent us donations for our  Give Christmas 2013 Event.


As mentioned in both posts earlier, a donation for our event entails an inclusion in our Christmas Gift Guide 2013 but I thought it would be nice to also include mini features on each brand that has donated baby toys, just to say thank you for their generosity.

(Not all will be hosting an additional giveaway, so do check back when the Event goes live to see if your favorite toys will be given away. But what’s important is that they have sent a toy for the children who’re associated with the Home.)


So here goes…

Check out these baby toys in our Christmas Gift Guide 2013!

The seat is light-weight and great to carry along during travel as well. Cleaning is easy with a wet cloth and definitely recommended on a regular basis, for baby’s safety.
Though the seat provides great support, adult supervision is always a must and leaving baby unattended is never suggested.

6. Tiny Love: Follow Me Fiona

MSRP: 24.99 US$
MSRP: 24.99 US$
This little musical, mobile, puppy is the perfect entertainer for babies during tummy time and a great motivator once she begins to crawl.
“Fiona” barks, plays music as she walks,  moves based on the speed she is set, turns based on where she is touched on her touch sensitive accordion styled body. While parts of her body are hard, her head, tail and ears are soft, encouraging baby to touch, feel and hug her new best friend! (And what’s neat is your baby can press on the motion activate buttons on her feet to trigger off movement, thereby encouraging baby’s fine motor and dexterity skills)

Age appropriateness: 6 – 18 months

7. Tiny Love: Starry Night Mobile

MSRP: 69.99 US$
MSRP: 69.99 US$
If you’re shopping for a baby mobile, consider investing in one that actually grows with baby. Tiny Love‘s Starry Night mobile is one such mobile that converts from a crib mobile to a night lamp that soothes baby to sleep, when he is older.
The mobile comes with 3 play modes- Nature/white sound, Classic Tunes or Lullabies. Each run for 30 minute durations, by which time your little one should be asleep!
When  baby is 1-4 months old, it’s recommended the mobile just be used with the hanging stars on the starry night canopy. When he reaches the 4 month mark, it’s recommended to use the overhead projection feature that allows pictures to move across the ceiling and keep him mesmerized, especially if fussy.
What’s neat about the mobile is it finally converts into a night lamp for your toddler, thereby giving him that sense of familiarity when he graduates from a crib to a toddler bed.
Age appropriateness: 0 – 18 months
