Christmas Gift Guide – Baby’s First Christmas!
As a parent of a New Baby everything is so exciting and Christmas in particular is a great time, but it also gives us the dilemma of what to buy for the little person that (let’s face it) needs pretty much nothing. Freddie was six months old last Christmas so here are some of the things that we bought, and some that we would recommend.
Fisher Price Laugh & Learn 3 in 1 Smart Car
Fisher Price Laugh & Learn 3 in 1 Smart Car – Not only can this car be used as a ride on toy, but the seat bounces up and down for baby to bounce along with the music. The dashboard has keys, a steering wheel and a horn with lots of music and sounds to keep baby entertained. The car width is also a great feature since it doesn’t tip over when your baby gets on and off.
Bamboo Penguin Plate
Bamboo Penguin Plate – What better way to serve their first Christmas Dinner than on this gorgeous penguin shaped plate. Made from natural bamboo which is great for the environment (biodegradable, recyclable and highly renewable) with a suction plate to keep it from being tipped off the highchair.
Vtech Baby Turn and Learn Activity Cube
A Letter from Santa
A Personalised Letter from Santa for Baby’s First Christmas. What a lovely keepsake explaining the magic of Christmas for that special First Christmas that you can read to them as they get older.
Vtech Baby Turn and Learn Activity Cube – This cube has a different activity on all of its sides with lots of buttons to press making animal sounds, songs and musical instrument noises. It’s a tough toy that can withstand the heavy handedness of a boisterous Freddie, and is played with daily.
What the Ladybird Heard Book
What the Ladybird Heard Book by Julia Donaldson – This was Isabelle’s favourite book when she was little so we thought Freddie would like it as well. Follow the ladybird through the book as its raised from the page in a touch and feel way.
Fisher-Price Jumperoo – If you haven’t got one of these already I would definitely recommend. Not only is it a great noisy jumping activity for your baby, but it also gives your arms a bit of baby-free time to eat your lunch or grab a hot cuppa.
Tomy Hide and Squeak Eggs
Tomy Hide and Squeak Eggs – Each egg has a different face on it, a shape on the bottom and makes a squeaking sound. Babies enjoy putting the eggs in and out of the box.
Lamaze Captain Calamari
Lamaze Captain Calamari – All of the Lamaze Baby Sensory Toys have multiple features including crinkles, sounds, textures and teething aids. They are all brightly coloured and come with a hanging ring so it can be attached to a pram or baby gym.
