I was lucky enough to receive the Lamaze Garden bug Foot Finder and Wrist Rattle Set from a friend at my baby shower when I was pregnant with my daughter, I was pretty stoked to have received this as working in a early childhood teacher I have become familiar with this product and seen how much younger babies and children love these, so I was pretty sure that my daughter would to!
The gift set features 4 pieces, 2 wrist straps, and 2 socks each which have a cute little bug sewn on to them which makes a sound of some description. This was one of the first toys that my daughter really enjoyed and interacted with from a very young age I think she was about 6 weeks old but was showing a huge delight in these, as when she would move her hands, or kick her feet around she would create a sound. The bugs attached to the socks appeared to have something in them which was like a shaker, while the wings of the bugs on the wrist bands had scrunchy sound making wings.
The materials used to make these cute little toys were made from a lovely soft material, which was nice and gentle for up against babies skin. And also being made from such materials made them easy to keep hygienically clean as you can just pop them in the washing machine... perfect. Everything seemed quite safe for a baby to use as it all seemed to be well sewn together, even after washing I had no issues with loose threads etc.
The colours are bright and colorful, great for catching young children's attention and holding it for some time, but I also loved the amount of black and white used as it is important for children to look at these colours also I feel. A really great invention for keeping babies amused for some time, and even at 2 years of age my daughter still loved exploring these, which I found to be great for her fine motor skills and co-ordination as she had to work out how to get the socks on and off her feet (and hands) and also how to get the Velcro wrist bands done up.
A very cute pack of toys perfect for any young babies, another great Lamaze product!
