With two kids in the house, we have a LOT of toys.
We saved a few really great toys Emma had when she was a baby for Tyler to use in the coming months but most of her baby stuff made its way out the door when she outgrew it. We lived in a super tiny apartment and nothing was super sentimental or not replaceable so we let a lot of it go. And now, looking at her room, you'd have no idea. The house is overflowing with her toys!
Because the house is already overflowing with dolls and stuffed animals, and we already have so many toys waiting for Tyler, Dave and I have been trying to be really smart about what toys we buy for for the little man. Space is prime right now and he's got some big huge things taking up space! Most trips to the store result in me looking at toys and then convincing myself we don't need them and walking away...
However, when I walked up to the Developmental Duffle table at MommyCon, I knew it was worth the investment!
The Developmental Duffle is designed around play with a purpose. Each toy serves a purpose and many, if not all of the toys, offer developmental skills across gross motor, fine motor, and emotional development. Each toy is researched and selected to be the most useful and fun way to help children hit the milestones they are supposed to by certain ages.
Because the conference was for new and expecting mothers, we walked home with a Developmental Duffle designed for birth to six months.
The birth to six month duffle is perfect for our little man!
The duffle includes:
See and Say Book
Spin Shine Rattle
Activity Cards &Duffle
So far, his favorite toy is the crib mirror. He must have been content for almost a half hour just looking at himself, or the other baby as he sees it!
I love the activity cards. Each card has a different way that the toys can be played with depending on which developmental milestone you want to work on.
Developmental Duffle also offers duffles for 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 24-36 months, 36-48 months, and 48-60 months, as well as Specialty Bags and Build Your Own Duffles.
The Specialty Duffles range from Preschool Fine Motor to Taking Care of Senses to Outdoor Exploring and the Build Your Own allows you to custom pick whichever toys you'd like added! however, with so many amazing curated bags, I'm not sure which I should duffle I should pick for the Princess when I get the 6-12 month bag for little man!
I love that each toy is high quality and is smart. It's more than just a toy, it's a learning instrument disguised as a toy and that is just wonderful to me! For more info you can always check out The Developmental Duffle Facebook Page too!
