*Thank you Tiny Love for sponsoring this post. Regardless all thoughts and opinions are my own and I only recommend products I truly love.
I’ve found that it is really difficult to find toys appropriate for the 10-12 month age range. For little babies it’s easy – play mats, activity gyms, little rattles. When they get a little older you can throw them in an exersaucer and keep them amused. Then around 10 months they are no longer content with those. They want to be constantly moving and being active, and want independence from toys that keep them constrained. But the Tiny Love Gymini® 1-2-3 Here I Grow!™ is a toy that keeps my 10 month old entertained and that he loves, and our toddler likes to jump in on it too!
So the Gymini 1-2-3 Here I Grow! starts as a great interactive playmate for newborns for laying down on or doing tummy time on. It has 15 playful features and activities that encourage the development of gross and fine motor skills, sensory stimulation, and exploration.
It then can become a low height interactive center for when baby starts sitting up. This is what we’ve mostly been using it as. It features lights and a music ball game, colourful lights, and a spiral sliding ball game for standing toddlers! And it also still has the toys attached at the bottom which are great for little explorers. Here is the Gymini 1-2-3 Here I Grow! in use at our house:
So what sets the Tiny Love Gymini® 1-2-3 Here I Grow!™ apart and makes me love it so much? Well first of all the way it transitions from newborn to toddler. It essentially combines 3 baby necessities into one saving space and money for parents. It also is super interactive and stimulating for little ones. The ball game is a lot of fun for babies and toddlers, and teaches them coordination at a very young age! Great for future basketball players! All of the toys along the bottom have crinkles in them or rattles and can be removed to take along in your diaper bag. The music isn’t annoying, the colors are bright and fun without being overbearing, and of course it’s easy to wipe clean for any spitup incidents!
