There were lots of new products (and some old ones we still love) for babies and toddlers at this year’s Toy Fair in New York City. We’ll be bringing you more information about the products as the year progresses, but here’s the sneak peak of the first group of our picks.
1. 3-In-1 Rocker Napper by Tiny Love – This awesome piece of gear is great for napping, rocking, and feeding and can be adjusted between functions with one hand. It should be in stores by May.
2. There’s not much we don’t love from 3 sprouts. There’s lot of new goodies coming from this stylish Canadian company including this Warthog Hooded Towel.
3. These Jungle Pocket Pouch from Tegu are the perfect little block set for the Diaper Bag. Although these are meant for kids a little older, this is a great little set for older babies to explore under direct parental supervision.
4. The edushape Mommy and Baby Elephant is a great little toy for sensory play. The elephant shakes, squeaks, rattles, and includes a mirror all of which address specific developmental skills including fine & gross motor skills, sensory tactile feedback, hand-eye coordination, and auditory sensory development.
5. Sleepy mommies rejoice! Blue Box Toys is launching a nifty baby sleep product this Fall called Watch Over Me. It has a 5 phase sleeping stage and uses motion, body heat and voice to recognize when the baby stirs overnight so that it can adjust to the appropriate sleep phase. Watch Over Me is scheduled to be in stores this Fall.
6. Janod is a French company that has been specializing in making wooden toys for 40 years. We love this Crazy Rocky Pullalong Dog.
7. eebbee toys has introduced this awesome eebee Adventure Play Mat & Activity Play House that will literally grow with your baby. At just a few months, baby enjoys the sensory stimulation of tummy time and as they turn into toddlers the mat can literally be turned into a little playhouse. Awesome!
8. We love Green Toys for their line of awesome cars, trucks, and even tea sets made of child friendly material. Their new line of Green Toys™ Mini Vehicles are going to make a lot of little ones happy.
9. Janod brings us this adorable ABC Walker that has an abacas in front and 36 alphabet and number blocks that fit inside the walker. Great first birthday gift!
10. We love the eebbee character, and this “if the SHAPE FITS eebee” plush is an adorable learning toy that comes with the 12″ plus and 4 wearable soft shapes.
Stay tuned for more of our picks for baby from Toy Fair 2012!
