I received free products in order to host a Bright Starts League of Little Laughers sponsored play date however I was no compensated for this post. All opinions in this post are my own.
With two kids around–one girl and one boy–my house could very easily become overrun by toys. So, we try to be choosy about the toys that we bring into the house. As a mom I like to choose toys that are both educational and fun and can grow with the kids. Bonus points if the toys are something both kids will play with!
When Bright Starts approached me about having a Bright Starts ‘League of Little Laughers’ Playdate I was so excited. I’ve been a fan of Bright Start toys for a while. When Gia was a baby two of her very first toys were Bright Starts plush blocks and Take N Shake stroller toys that we hung off her infant carrier. So when I had the opportunity to host a Bright Starts League of Little Laughters Playdate I was all in! We invited a few friends over and we couldn’t wait to check out the new Bright Starts toys!
This adorable, brightly colored little guy was an instant hit with the little kids and my 5 year old daughter. Nicholas and Matthew loved pressing buttons and watching the Learn & Giggle Fish light up. I loved that it was helping to reinforce all the work we’re doing to learn letters, numbers and colors. And it’s the perfect size for little hands and little laps.
The activity station is an awesome toy that would be great for younger babies all the way up through toddlerhood because they can play with it while they’re sitting or standing. All of the kids loved the light switch and the glowing fishbowl. When you push down the arm of the cat, the fishbowl spins and lights up, capturing their attention immediately. With 65+ sounds, melodies and phrases, the Learn & Giggle Activity Station really kept the kids busy and interested for a long while.
Nicholas never met a ball he didn’t like (future sports star on my hands maybe?) and the Giggable was NO exception. The minute he say it he was chanting “ball! ball!”. He loved that it wiggles and wobbled all on it’s own, or that he could roll it and push it where he wanted it to go. I think he would have loved this when he was even younger too — it’s perfect for crawlers and walkers alike.
