Track your tots with the hereO GPS watch

Learn with a helicopter
The Explore and Learn Helicopter combines a favorite toy with introductory learning tools. There’s a spinning propeller of course, and wheels that roll for take-off.

Blender and Bottle Warmer
The latest from Cuisinart does double duty: it’ll blend up the perfect baby food, and also heat up a bottle. The device can chop, and pureé many foods — and the “steam blade” cooks it as well with “even steam distribution for quicker, more efficient results,” the company says. [ More ]

Book Sings and Squeaks in the Bath

Fisher-Price says its new baby seat “is soothing and entertaining, with a touch of technology.” There’s a 7×5-inch mirror “to reflect your baby’s smiling face, and promote facial recognition and a sense of self as baby develops,” Fisher-Price says. When you put your iPad into the mirror case, it can provide stimulation and engagement for your baby, while protecting your device from sticky fingers — or unintentionally navigating to other apps.

Learn letters with LeapFrog
The Letter Factory Phonics has 26 singing letters to bring the alphabet to life, LeapFrog  says. It’s based on the award-winning Letter Factory DVD, but doesn’t require a disc player. Instead, “little learners place letter tiles in the “factory” to hear songs that teach the corresponding letter names and sounds,” LeapFrog says. [ More ]
Baby monitor for iPhone
“By reassuring you that your baby is resting peacefully,” Belkin says, a monitor “allows you to use your free time more productively. You’ll be able to tend to household tasks, catch up with friends, or enjoy a quiet moment to yourself while your baby is resting.” Of course there are plenty of baby monitor systems available, but the WeMo from Belkin works directly with your iPhone.  [ More ]
