What's Hap-pinning Wednesday: Lamaze Toy Review

Happy Wednesday, y'all! As you know, we just had sweet Knox a little over two weeks ago. So when TOMY reached out to me about reviewing some adorable Lamaze toys, I quickly jumped at the chance. We actually already own some Lamaze toys since I registered for them when I was pregnant with Walker, and we love them around here! 

They were sweet enough to send us the Lamaze Octotunes, the Lamaze Gardenbug Foot Finder & Wrist Rattle Set, and the Lamaze Mortimer the Moose


Knox is still a teeny bit little to play with these toys since he's two weeks old, but, having a two-year-old, I know they grow into them and he will love playing with them so soon! Our main focus right now is keeping Knox awake after feedings (since we're big proponents of the wake/eat/play/sleep schedule), so we hung the Mortimer the Moose on his playmat. He adores looking at the bright colors and even tries to reach up and grab its feet. 

We had Mortimer with Walker, and I have zero clue where it disappeared to, so I was happy to see TOMY included this in the package. ;) Mortimer has teethable antlers (which are amazing), little knottie activity legs, a squeaker body, and bright colors and textures for baby to explore. 


Walker's favorite toy is the Lamaze Octotunes, and he loves that each of the eight tentacles plays a different note when squeezed. (We hear a lot of "music" being played for Knox with this toy…ha!) But what's great about this toy is that its large, friendly eyes invite baby to focus on a single object, which helps support healthy eye development. And, those eight legs encourage pulling, squeezing and hugging, which helps strengthen baby's muscles. 


And finally, since Knox's little feet and wrists are currently too small for the Lamaze Gardenbug Foot Finder & Wriest Rattle Set, we put them on our fingers (and Walker does, too!) to shake them for Knox. These sweet little rattles encourage baby to reach and grab, which promotes sensory exploration through sight, touch and sound. I know this will be so sweet and fun to see Knox use these to explore and learn so soon. 



All of these sweet Lamaze toys are available at buybuyBABY, so be sure to scoop them up on your next visit there. We love these toys (℅ TOMY)!
