***BABY BLESSINGS-Bright Starts Toys Review & GIVEAWAY***

When Monkey was little his favorite toys were the simple non-noise making ones (thank goodness!) that were made to stimulate and entertain without all of the noise.  He had a few noise making toys that friends and family had bought him but he just seemed to like the simpler toys more (until he got older and now unfortunately he likes the noisy "drive your Mama crazy" toys.)  I loved seeing him learn how to pull on their legs or shake the rattles that were attached. To see his little face light us was the best thing in the world.

Bright Starts sent us a few products for our Baby Blessings Baby Shower for Baby D to try out. We were sent the Bright Starts Bunch-O-Fun-Elephant, Start Your Senses Sensory Giraffe, and the Take-N-Shake Frog

Bright Starts has so many great products that are award winning and everything that they carry is high quality and well made. Their toys all have great features that are bound to entertain your kiddo and keep them smiling. 
(Bright Starts Bunch-O-Fun-Elephant)
I just love the Elephant! It has so many different little sensory features on it that are made to entertain even the youngest kiddo (or even a two year old......Monkey loves playing with all of these toys!). Even though Baby D is too young to be able to actually play with it he loves it when you krinkle the elephants foot by his ear or shake the rattle. He turns his head towards it and you can just see his little brain trying to figure out what is going on.


The Bunch-O-Fun comes in either a lion and an Elephant. They come with many features like.......ears and a foot that crinkle, a rattle on one of the feet, clacker links on one of the feet, a teether on one of the feet,  fabric accents that are made to get your babies attention on the feet, the ears, head, trunk, and tummy, bungee leg, and multiple fabric textures and fun bright colors.
       (Bright Starts Start Your Senses Sensory Giraffe)


      Babies will love to take this cute giraffe with them wherever they go! Sensory Giraffe helps develop baby’s senses of sight, sound, and touch while on-the-go! It has high contrast colors to keep your babies attention, multiple textures, and fun sounds help stimulate baby’s senses. It has a different sensory stimulating activity on each one of giraffe’s legs.  A Mirror, Teether, Rattle, and Bead chaser....one on each of the giraffes legs.

      When it hangs on the car seat it is at the perfect height for your little one to be able to easily reach and play with. It works great for attaching onto your babies car seat, stroller, or anywhere you want to attach it to for entertainment on-the-go.  It is very easy to attach it onto the car seat. All that you have to do is wrap the Velcro on the top around the bar and position it to where your baby can easily reach it.  You can just leave it on the seat so that your kiddo always has something to play with while you are out and about.

      (Bright Starts Take-N-Shake Frog)
      Pull and watch them shake! Rattling fun will make this one of baby's favorites!  The Take-N-Shake come in three fun characters (Frog, Bird and Ladybug) that are also great for On-the-Go. They are easy for a little one to pull on and work great to keep your kiddo entertained.  The Take n' Shake toys are great on-the-go toys with characters your kids will love. When you pull down on each of the characters, they rattle and shake their way back up. These toys are also easily attachable to any baby gear you may have and are a perfect toy for babies.

      Bright Starts has so many great developmental products that you as a parent will love.  Many of their toys are geared for infants under 12 months old so they work great for your babies first toys.  Bright Starts also has many of the other essential items that you as a parent will need like play yards, bouncers, and swings plus much more. Their products are affordable and will work great for Christmas presents, birthday presents, or baby shower gifts.
