Seen in The Independent – Best Developmental Toys

Popular UK news site, The Independent, posted an article this past week that highlighted some brilliant developmental toys, some of which are available to buy at Baby Brands Direct! The Independent’s website is a popular source of news, reviews and entertainment for British consumers, as well as those from other countries, with around 99 million visitors to the site each month. Their article, written by a parent based on their own experiences, featured some recommended toys, bringing these items to the attention of a wide and diverse audience of parents and families from all across the country.

The Lamaze 3-in-1 Airtivity Centre is one of the products featured, with the reviewer saying that they felt it was a great source of entertainment for their little one and is perfect for promoting visual development, tactile processing, motor skills as well as problem solving. The table is designed to keep baby exploring and developing starting around 6 months and all the way up to 3 years, with removable legs and a vast range of activities to keep kids interested and entertained throughout the months. The Airtivity Centre uses air to move the different toys, making them spin, rattle and wave – an innovative way to create movement and sound. Kids will love feeling the air blow from the product, providing a sensory experience. 

Another product highlighted was the Halilit Baby’s 1st Birthday Band Gift Set. This gift set is a wonderful introduction to music making. This brightly coloured set contains a selection of age appropriate instruments, including a cute Ocean Drum, Baby Maraca, Ring My Bell, Rainboshaker and Clip Clap. It also includes tracks to download and play along to! The reviewer liked the fact that they were easy for their little one to hold and helped introduce them to sound. They found their little one really loved to make noise with the toys! 

The Lalaboom Educational Beads And Accessories 24Pk was also a hit with parent and baby, with them stating that the product’s versatility and colourful design were highlights. They also liked that the product is designed to grow with children, providing them with new learning experiences as they grow to understand how the shapes fit together. The set encourages 5 evolutionary stages of learning through the actions of fitting the beads together. The variety of colours and textures will engage little ones and help them to develop new motor skills step by step.

Also mentioned are John Adams Fun Bricks, which is a similar product to Flair’s Stickle Bricks available at Baby Brands Direct. The reviewer said they were perfect for developing hand-eye coordination and also easy for little one to hold and play with. They also picked the wooden Kids Concept Sorting Box as a great item, that encourages kids to solve puzzles and problems as well as helping them build their hand-eye coordination skills. Other wooden toys were picked as well such as a pull along train and other sorting puzzles. Similar wooden items are available from Janod – featuring adorable animals, pastel colours and attractive modern designs.
