When my oldest son was born, one of my very favourite things about having a new baby in the house was choosing some fun first toys for him to play with. I was amazed by how much technology was packed into toys to help promote learning as well as play. And ten years later, that’s even more true! From cuddly and interactive stuffed toys to literacy-inspired musical instruments, there are all kinds of ways to encourage little ones to learn as they play!
Recently, VTech Canada sent me a few of its newest toys to check out for myself: the Lil’ Critters Huggable Hippo Teether and the Baby Beats Monkey Drum. I loved the bright colours and designs of the two toys and couldn’t wait to see what made them a great choice for babies.
