Hello! Welcome to my seventh attempt at the April AtoZ blogging challenge. My theme this year is Experiences of a first time grandmother! Some sweet, salty moments and learnings! My posts are totally based on what I felt (may even border on rants) and are not meant to be a guide.
As we awaited our Bundle of Joy, I found myself in a totally new world .. one of baby products! I guess I must have mentioned this in almost every post, its a whole new game out there!
It is now all about sustainability, non toxic materials, learning experiences and so on… Ofcourse there are the usual brick and mortar but online shopping from various start ups opens up a fantastic range as toys go traditional.
There are toys made from cloth, washable ones with non toxic materials. Some were so cute, I almost ended up ordering one for myself!!
This cute cloth Elephant is actually a Rattle!
And there are wonderful books as well.. ones that afford a sensory experience for the infants ..
These books have contrast colours and different textures
What has not changed at all, is that we find toys at unexpected places around the house … under the sofa cushions, in the show case of the drawing room, even in the kitchen!
What has been your experience? I am sure my thoughts may cause a deje vu to some of you, especially someone who has hosted a new born. I would love to hear from you..
