Mozart Magic Cube
If you’re looking for some last minute gifts, Munchkin has a great selection for infants, toddlers, preschool age, and even baby shower gifts as well. I was really having trouble getting something for Christmas for my 3 month old daughter; when I received this product, I knew it was just what I needed. The colors, sounds and level of interaction is perfect for my little one. The Mozart Magic Cube is an interactive musical toy with eight Mozart pieces for your child to enjoy. The rounded edges are easy for little hands to maneuver and the big buttons are the perfect size for baby’s fingers to push and hear the music. The cube lights up and plays music just with little ones touch. Your child can start with one instrument and then add more sounds as they touch more sides of it. They can also subtract an instrument by again touching the cube. This is also an educational toy as the child can begin to recognize the different instruments by the pictures of the piano, violin and more on the Mozart Magic Cube. You can begin to mold your little musica prodigy with the interaction of this product. It has also won the Dr. Toy Best Vacation Product and the Parents Choice Award and is the perfect gift for little one to enjoy.
We all know that bath time can become crazy time without the bathtub toys. I needed some toys that would amuse a 3 month old and grab the attention of my 3 year old as well. These two bath time toys by munchkin accomplished just that. While bathing my 3 year old, my baby watches with wonder as he sprayed water through his Star Fountain. He laughed and in turn the little one began to giggle as well. Her eyes popped as the star spun and sprayed with a blue glow. For only $9.99, this could be a great stocking stuffer.
Dolphin Divers by Munchkin was a hit! My son loves dolphins and whales, so this is his new favorite. It has a removable whale that can scoop up water and as your child pours the water, the dolphins below spin with fury. Being a teacher, of course, I had to make this toy educational by talking about cause and effect. What happens when the water is poured, the dolphins spin–it’s a great conversation to have with a three year old to get him to start thinking about more higher order thinking skills. Being able to accomplish a task like this, while he is playing in the tub makes this bath toy even better. And again, for the price, this would also make a great stocking stuffer your children are sure to enjoy.
SaraBear Diaper Caddy
When they say at-your-finger-tips accessibility to all the baby care essentials, they are not kidding. The SaraBear Diaper Caddy by Munchkin is a great product. I have a pack and play downstairs for my 3 month old daughter and it never seemed to have enough room for all I need when changing time arrives. This SaraBear Diaper Caddy is a godsend. All I need is right there at arms reach. My three year old can even help by grabbing the product I need. This makes him feel part of the changing ritual instead of on the outs. Believe me, this cuts down on a lot of attention grabbing mischief. The SaraBear Diaper Caddy has really has made my life easier. The caddy basket is also appealing to the eyes. It’s made of real wood in a tight weave with a 100% cotton liner and a collapsible handle. This makes it so easy to carry the basket to any room, you can’t do that with a pack n play. The caddy had a variety of sizes of pockets to hold wipes, diapers, creams, etc. It is also eco- friendly. When reading the packaging it also suggests that when baby starts to grow out of diaper changing, the basket can be transformed into a place for electronic devices (cell phone, iPod or TV Remotes) or even in the child’s room as a place to put and organize her toys. I was thinking what a great shower gift this would make. You can fill the entire basket with the baby changing essentials and the new mom will be prepared and it looks great all wrapped up in some clear plastic and a bow. You will be the envy of the other guests of the shower when the new mom is crooning over your gift.
