Babies Build with Blocks

baby blocksKids love to build, but babies aren’t born ready for Legos — so here’s a good starter set of ten colorful blocks for your baby to sort and stack.

“Filling the bucket with blocks, dumping them out, and starting over is great for eye-hand coordination and other early skills,” says Fisher Price. “Then your baby can move on to stacking and matching, and sorting the five different block shapes through the shape-sorting lid.” This can help a baby learn to identify and sort shapes and colors, enhance problem-solving skills, and motivate imagination, the company adds.  Man… that’s a lotta activity from some simple blocks!

The 10 blocks fit inside the bucket, with a carry handle. They’re $8 here. (Affiliate link)

Educate your Unborn Baby

The developer says infants who have used the BabyPlus “are born more alert and responsive, nurse better, sleep better, and enjoy improved school readiness.”

The BabyPlus provides audio lessons with which a baby can discriminate the simple rhythmic sounds of the gadget from those of the mother. It’s a “progressive developmental tool that gets results,” the company adds. “This patented, prenatal curriculum is designed to strengthen your baby’s learning capabilities with naturally derived audio lessons. For your child, the developmental benefits of BabyPlus last a lifetime.”

Listen in on your Unborn

The gadget amplifies the baby’s heartbeat, kicks, hiccups and natural womb sounds, that begin late in the second trimester. The included guide explains the sounds you hear to help you differentiate them, “allowing you to connect with your yet-to-be-born baby.” The device can also record the sounds, so you can share them with friends and family.
