Baby product reviews

Both Big and Mini Bilibos
All right, you’re asking, “What the heck is a Bilibo and why does it come in two sizes anyhow?” The Bilibo “combines a rocking chair, spinning top, cradle and tunnel in one single toy,” says its maker Kid O. Bilibo arouses curiosity, engages the imagination and playfully trains basic motor skills and balance, the company adds. More
Start singing, baby!
This gadget is more than just an amplified microphone: turn the mic on “and a glowing baby-animal will appear on the mirror with a mic in the hand” to join your tot in a tune. And it’s more than just songs: With its Activity Cube Center, “everywhere baby turns there is something to do and learn,” maker WolVol says. More
3D “printed” heart helps save baby’s life
3D “printing” is a new manufacturing technique that sprays out solid material like an inkjet printer, building it up layer by layer into a larger object. The first 3D printed items were simple lumpy toys. But the technology has advanced fast — and now surgeons have used a 3D model of an infant’s heart to prepare for life-saving surgery. More
Kids, watch this!
Dick Tracy would be envious: it’s not just a watch, it’s a camera!
With the Kidizoom Smartwatch, “young photographers can take photos and videos on the go,” VTech says.
The color touchscreen can be set with 50 clock-face designs.
There’s also a voice recorder, with “wacky voice-changing effects,” and four learning games. More
Best Time for Baby-Making
The makers of the Ovatemp fertility tracking app are now offering the complementary ONDO digital thermometer to monitor the start of ovulation. A woman’s fertility cycle can be measured based on basal body temperature throughout the month, TechCrunch reports, and the thermometer makes it easy to check that, sending the temperature information via Bluetooth to your iPhone when you stick the thermometer under your tongue.

Baby goes for a drive
All right, it’s actually a stationary car — but it encourages your baby to sit up, crawl, pull up, stand & move all around for play inside & out, says Fisher-Price. The Laugh and Learn Crawl Around Car is a “vehicle for fun” the company says, “fully loaded with busy activities inside and out.” Your baby can turn the key, honk the horn, turn the steering wheel or shift the gear to activate lights, learn phrases, and sing along to 75 songs and tunes.

The Tablift Tablet Stand
It’s not pretty, but I love it. The new Tablift tablet stand looks like something out of War of the Worlds, so I was a bit skeptical about using it. Until I used it! Touted as “the most stable tablet stand on the market,” its four bendable rebar-like legs keeps it stable on the couch, chair or bed without touching your body. More
Get live expert advice for baby sleep
“Having a baby can be exhausting,” write Jeana Lee Tahnksep at Mashable. “Aside from the growing it and pushing it out part, the first few months (or even years) are riddled with little sleep, interrupted sleep, floor sleep, rocking chair sleep and sleep that leaves you guzzling coffee like there’s no tomorrow.” Her solution? More
Get to work, baby!
Your baby can “work and learn” with nails that light up as they are pounded, and “your little fixer can pound, tap, spin, slide and drill.” The Laugh and Learn Learning Workbench from Fisher-Price has 15 sing-along songs and tunes, along with lively music, fun sounds and phrases, the company says, for “discovering the alphabet, counting, shapes, colors, opposites and actions.” There are three interactive learning modes, and “tool friends” that “bring the workbench to life:” a dancing drill, spinning vise, twirling paint roller, count-and-slide ruler ,and rattling hammer.
