Soft N Snuggly Door Jumper by Evenflo

If you’re looking for a fun gift for baby that will allow you to rest your weary arms for a bit, check out Evenflo’s Soft N Snuggly “Cowtastic” Door Jumper. Baby will have a blast while getting exercise in this adorable, plush cow that easily hangs suspended from any door frame. With sounds and sensory toys, this jumper provides baby with fun and a safe place to “hang out” away from your loving arms.

The Soft N Snuggly Door Jumper is portable and provides entertainment and exercise without taking up precious floor space. Just open up the clamp and attach it above the trim around your door. The sturdy frame covered in soft velour fabric offers a safe spot for baby to bounce and listen to the fun “moo” sound the cow makes (yes, there is an on/off switch). Or, baby can just relax and check himself out in the self-discovery mirror while chewing on the cute moon sensory toy attached to the side of the cow. 

The Soft N Snuggly Door Jumper is compact and perfect for travel. It is also very easy to move from room to room throughout the day so that baby can have fun wherever you are. This toy is the perfect gift for babies 4 months to walking age (maximum 24 pounds).

ExerSaucer World Explorer Triple Fun+ by Evenflo

Are you looking for a gift that can grow with your baby and provide them with many months, even years, of fun? Evenflo’s ExerSaucer World Explorer Triple Fun+ is guaranteed to entertain your little one and save some of your sanity at the same time. Talk about a perfect gift! This convertible saucer toy provides your baby with three stages of entertainment (from birth through age two!), along with a multitude of engaging toys, fun music and lights, and an educational learning pod featuring 4 languages!

The stand-out feature of the ExerSaucer World Explorer Triple Fun+ is how it can be used 3 different ways, depending on the stage of development of your little one:

  • Stage 1: 
    For infants, the ExerSaucer World Explorer Triple Fun+ comes with a soft, cushioned, bright and colorful playmat ($40 value in itself!) that can be used on the floor with the ExerSaucer’s toys.
  • Stage 2:
    For baby’s 4 months to walking, sit them in the ExerSaucer and they can rock, bounce, and spin around while enjoying the toys, music, and lights that the saucer has to offer.
  • Stage 3: 
    Once baby is on the go, the ExerSaucer can be converted to an activity table where they can still enjoy all of the fun the saucer has to offer, but do it while on the go. We found that even preschoolers enjoy playing with it!

So, if you want a great toy that you can really get your money’s worth out of this holiday season, the ExerSaucer World Explorer Triple Fun+ would make a fabulous gift for the littles one in your life!

Baby Baltic Amber Teething Necklace from A Mother’s Boutique

If you’ve been wanting to get your baby a Baltic amber teething necklace, but aren’t sure where to get an authentic one, A Mother’s Boutique is our favorite place to look.  Certified to be 100% authentic amber by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), you can rest assured that this is a true Baltic amber teething necklace that will help your baby’s teething pain.  Baltic amber has a natural healing property – it’s a live resin that contains succinic acid, a natural anti-inflammatory analgesic that is activated by the warmth of your baby’’s skin. Your baby doesn’’t actually chew on the necklace,– the amber simply must rest on your baby’’s skin and then the magic happens!

A Mother’s Boutique Baltic amber teething necklaces are the only amber necklaces on the market that are GIA certified and CPSC compliant (though you should always supervise your child when wearing, and remove for sleeping).  Available in honey (raw honey version shown here), cognac, cherry, and multi-colored, as well as polished or raw, you can select whatever color suits your fancy and know that the anti-inflammatory, healing properties of the amber will work to help make your baby more comfortable.

Flip Cube and Rock & Ball by Tiny Love

With so many baby toys on the market, you want to be sure to find ones that will grow with your child this holiday season. The Flip Cube by Tiny Love is designed with your infant’s developmental stages in mind. With a variety of outer and inner elements such as buttons, crinkle toys, a mirror and rattle, your baby will have fun exploring each and every side of her Flip Cube, inside and out. 

Start out by exploring the cube together with your baby around 3 months. When your baby is a few months older, she will begin to explore it on her own. She will learn how to open and close the cube, and even pull the inner cube out and put it back inside. The Flip Cube will help your baby develop important motor skills, all the while entertaining and intriguing her with its bright colors and fun and playful objects. 

The Rock & Ball is also another great gift that will grow with your baby. When your baby is born, you can turn the ball into the standing position and place it in front of her during tummy time. She will be intrigued by the bright colors of the rings and her own image in the mirror. This is the perfect toy to encourage her to develop a strong neck and upper body strength.

Once she’s a few months older, she will love rolling the ball aournd, crawling after it and changing its shape into a tambourine and back into a ball again. Tiny Love’s Flip Cube and Rock & Ball are the perfect developmental gifts for your baby this Christmas!

Baby & Toddler Gymini Developlace by Tiny Love

The Gymini Developlace activity gym by TinyLove is a gift that will grow with your infant into toddlerhood! The Developlace is a mini gym that has (at least) 11 different activities (though we’re sure you and your baby will come up with some fun extra games!). It features an adorable forest animals theme in bold, beautiful colors. For newborns and young babies, the sides fold down to form a big play mat. You can hang the toys from above so he can play while he’s on his back, or you can flip him over for a little tummy time and he’ll enjoy studying the crinkly leaf flap, beautiful colors, and his reflection in the mirror. As your baby grows you can switch out toys and start placing them higher to encourage him to sit up and improve his balance. Fold up one of the sides and secure with the elastic velcro bands and you have a peek-a-boo window to play games with him.

Fold up both sides and you have a crawling tunnel that older babies will love! Teach your baby to put the ball into the net on the outside and stick the fabric cards with bugs and leaves to the side. Toddlers too will enjoy crawling through the tunnel and using the gym as a tent. And once they’re old enough, they’ll love to point out the numbers on the other side of the cards for you. And there’s another thing to love about the Gymini Developlace, and all of TinyLove’s products: no yucky fire retardants to worry about. We think all this makes the Gymini Developlace a great gift for your little one and any expectant mom’s on your Christmas list!
