GIVEAWAY!!One Step Ahead – a fabulous toy company founded by real-life parents, Karen and Ian Scott – sent me the Animal Crackers Giant Stacking Toy for L’il Buddy to try out. I have to say that this toy was a hit right out of the box. First, the toy really is giant! And what kid doesn’t like a big, colorful toy? Since L’il Buddy is only 5 months old, Giggles took it upon herself to “help” him play with it — and she enjoys the toy too! Each stacking ring is made of a different, but soft, textured fabric — perfect for little hands learning their way around the world through touch. Second, each ring makes a different sound when squeezed, stacked or shaken. The sounds are what make L’il Buddy’s eyes light up. Last, the rings are of differing sizes so kids will have fun trying to stack them in whatever order they choose. This toy makes a lovely gift for any baby. Bonus: they can even chew on the rings to their heart’s content! My only minor complaint is that there is a little fish at the top of the stacking ring which makes it little tricky for little ones to get the stacking rings on without some extra effort. The Animal Crackers Giant Stacking Toy retails for $34.95. More details on the toy, below.
