As many of you know my grandson was born last August.  I’m having a great time buying him all kinds of things including clothing and toys.

I wanted to share my experience with the toys I have purchase for him so far and how pleased we are with them.

Fisher-Price Deluxe Kick ‘n Play Piano Gym– recommended for children up to 2 years of age.

This toy has proven to be an invaluable one for several stages of the baby’s development.  I purchased this toy for Matthew when he was four month’s old.  At that stage it is recommended for engaging and stimulate their senses. Little ones can lie on the back and enjoy 20 minutes of continuous playful music, lights, and sounds.

At six month old he was able to kick and light up the keyboard, he loved it.  At ten months he was sitting up on his own and was able to enjoy the full experience of the Fisher Price Deluxe Kick ‘n Play Piano Gym.

Matthew is now eleven months old and he loves the detachable keyboard. It’s one of his favorite toys.

GUND Animated Peek-A-Boo Bear – recommended for children 1 year and up.

Even though this toy is recommended for children one year of age and up I felt with adult supervision it would be okay to purchase it for my grandson.  He loves to play peek-a-boo and would get hysterical each time we would play it with him.  When I saw this bear I knew I had to purchase it for him. Gund plush toys have been around for more than 100 years and has an outstanding reputation so I never once hesitated to purchase this toy.  He has enjoyed many hours of play with this bear and will continue to do so for many more years.

This adorable bear recites one of six different phrases while animated mouth and arms recreate peek-a-boo game. It features a satin-accented blanket which goes up and down to hide the bear’s face playing peek-a-boo automatically.  It’s made from a soft, huggable material and a surface-washable construction for easy cleaning.

Fisher-Price Learn with Me Zebra Walker– recommended for children 6 months or older.

Now at eleven months old Matthew is starting to pull himself up and I’m sure will be attempting to walk soon.  This Fisher Price Learn With Me Zebra Walker helps foster balance and coordination, and gives motor skills a healthy workout. The easy-grasp handle and stable 4-wheel base help your baby balance better and make beginning steps a little less wobbly.

I loved the fact that is was also a busy toy with activities help build fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. And the bright colors, lights, music and phrases help give important senses like sight and hearing a big boost.​

In my opinion this is a must buy as well! You an find more information on this toy here!


My First Hess Toy Truck – recommended for children of all ages.

My husband saw a commercial for this toy right after Matthew was born and bugged me until I ordered it.  It took some time to come but when it did I can tell you how pleased we were that we purchased it.  This adorable toy is unlike the traditional Hess Trucks that are made of hard plastic.  This one is a soft plush toy made of a soft durable fabric that can be wiped clean.  You just have to squeeze it to activate the lights and sounds available in the toy.  It contains 2 Sing-along songs: “Wheels on the Truck” and “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”  It has eleven (11) LED lights that work in flashing or steady modes.  It can serve as a night light to keep your child company at night as well.

The toy requires tree (3) AAA batteries which are included.  It came with a 2020 commemorative year license plate and personalizeable keepsake detachable gift tag.
