Once Baby Squirrel was sitting up by herself, I found that a lot of the toys that we had from her newborn days were not really stimulating her, and was on the lookout for more interactive toys to stimulate her senses, and develop her hand-eye co-ordination…
I have to be honest I yearned for a Fisher-Price Rainforest Jumperoo for Baby Squirrel. Most of my friends with babies have one. The Jumperoo is jam-packed with interactive play options and can keep Baby entertained and in one place for quite some time.
This piece of kit, however, takes up a fair bit of space, and living in a Glasgow tenement flat means floor space is limited,… and diminishing since the arrival of Baby Squirrel! Also, the (not so) little one has outgrown the Jumperoo’s weight limit!
So when we were given the ELC Activity Triangle by my brother, whose little ones had outgrown it, we were thrilled to see Baby Squirrel explore it. The Activity Triangle is reasonably priced, compact and easy for little hands to grasp, with bright primary colours, and lots of beads and shapes to push, pull, and manipulate.
Baby Squirrel is going to be nine months old next week. Can anyone recommend some good interactive toys for this stage?
