I never thought I would get excited over baby toys again. No..no..NO! Totally not what you think… I am blessed to have two cute little nephews. One is 7 and the tech world is his oyster- the other is 10 months old, and he is at that adorable, new discovery stage where basically anything in his path is up for grabs.
Getting this little guy enamored with anything long enough to take a few pictures is a feat, that is until I sat him in front of some of Baby Einstein’s latest additions to their well loved brand. Baby Einstein has debuted 4 new products including Sweet Sea Dreams Mobile, Sea Dreams Soother, Baby Neptune Activity Saucer, Music & Discovery Travel Mirror, Peek-A-Scene and Count & Discover Treasure Chest. My gorgeous little nephew got a chance to try out a couple of these items, and I possibly became his most favorite aunt (ok ok– I already was!).
He has some fun playing with the Peek A Saucer, but he didnt have quiet enough strength to fully push down on the button yet. He did keep trying and would crawl over to me every time I pushed the button (which was a little addicting to do- there is a kid in all of us right?).
What he was really fascinated with however, was the Baby Neptune Activity Saucer, Music and Discovery Mirror.
I swear that baby boy could not stop playing with the knobs, and kissing himself in the mirror. He cooed at every light that lit up and bounced up and down to the little music playing. I know this is meant for a travel toy that can hang from afar, but my nephew loved it up close. It got him to interact and he was intrigued by it for a good 5-7 mins, which for a 10 month old is like a decade.
The great thing about Baby Einstein toys, is that while I know that he will enjoy them, I also know that they are helping his ever growing brain develop skills as he grows. So as he plays, he learns and that is super important for his developing brain. So not only am I the cool aunt, but I’m the aunt that helps nurture that budding doctor, or scientist. Shouldn’t we all nurture that part of all the babies in our lives?
