Baby product reviews

Kid-proof your iPad
Before you let your child play with your iPad, protect it with LifeProof’s Nuud Case and Stand. How tough is it? It’s designed to military standards to withstand drops from four feet, and its totally sealed from dirt and dust particles. More
Baby drum set
Kids got rhythm: this new learning toy has three drum pads and cymbal, each with its own unique sound, VTech says. Your child can play along to nine pre-set melodies in styles including rock, dance and pop, and choose from four different sounds for the drums. More
Beanbags for Baby
This looks pretty comfortable: The Babybooper Bean Bag is touted as being a safe and cozy seat or snuggle bed for a newborn baby (with a 3-point harness) and is also suitable as a super comfy and versatile bean bag seat for older kids right through to about 5 years of age. More
A Smarter scale for kids
Would you like an easier way to track your baby’s weight? Now you can place your child on the smart scale’s cradle to receive high-accuracy weight measurements, which are then automatically uploaded and charted using the free Baby Companion app. The app also compares your baby’s progress to other babies of the same age and gender, the developer says, and lets you monitor nutrition by logging bottle intake and breastfeeding.

Real toy shapes interact with iPad
Noted by Time Magazine as one of the “toys that will make your kids smarter,” Tiggly Shapes develops motor skills, spatial thinking, creativity, and language. Toddlers toy with tablets, the company says, and “you might think it’s crazy to let a youngster touch such a pricey device,” but Tiggly Shapes encourages it. More
Toy is like a tree house
Your child’s senses will be running wild as they explore and discover ball play, shape sorting, turning gears and more. VTech says its Grow & Discover Tree House has so many fun activities, “your little one will never want to come out from their tree house play tent.” And that’s a good thing, as the toy “provides a variety of activities to stimulate toddlers senses and help develop important motor skills.” Babies can drop the balls through the holes and watch them roll, sort the shape sorters, or use the fabric to play peek-a-boo or hide and seek.

“See” your child before conception
How will your genetics combine with those of your spouse? A new service can emulate your potential embryo by virtually mixing DNA. The technique is primarily aimed at letting parents screen out genetic disorders. But GenePeeks’ science will also, according to its patent, show eye and skin pigmentation, height and waist size, and more. More
Snap and Surprise camera
No, it doesn’t actually take a picture. The Snap and Surprise camera is all about “colorful role-play,”  Vtech says. It has fun mechanical features, such as a light-up lens your baby can spin, and a slider “to choose images for imitative play.” When the shutter button is pressed, it doesn’t snap an exposure, but a “cute puppy pops out of hiding for some peek-a-boo fun.” The Snap and Surprise Camera “is sure to make your baby smile.” It’s $12 here.
