Monkeying Around With Bright Starts™ :: Toys for Toddlers

Toddlers are a special breed. They're bursting with energy and curiosity as they spend much of their time embracing both cognitive and imaginative play. Becoming increasingly more mobile with each passing day, they require toys and activities that engage not only their minds but also their busily moving bodies. 
 
Do you happen to know what else is essential to your toddler's growth and well-being? Laughter. Which is great because the folks over at Bright Starts, where "fun comes first™" have been working on engineering toys determined to increase your baby's B.L.I™ (or Baby Laugh Index™). Do you know what your child's Baby Laugh Index™ is? Do you even know what a Baby Laugh Index™ is? Trust me, it's a hoot! My toddler is most definitely a snorter with a little bit of high-pitched squealer mixed in.
 
 
The newest toys from Bright Starts™, the 3-in-1 Step 'n Ride Lion™ and the Hide 'n Spin Monkey, and the Jungle Fun Ball Climber  debuted at the highly popular blogging conference, BlogHer 2014. It was here that moms from all across the country were granted a hands-on speak peek of these giggle-inducing toys. 
 
Our personal favorite? The Hide n' Spin Monkey™, of course. He's become an irresistible and highly sought-after playmate in our home and not just with my toddler but my preschooler as well! 
 
 
With brightly colored balls, flashing lights, music and other fun sounds, this toy appeals to every one of the Toddler Senses. There are buttons to press, lights that flash, songs to sing and balls to chase after! 
 
As a mom, while I appreciate the silly songs and flashing lights and sounds, I'm particularly fond of how this toy encourages both fine and gross motor skills. Dropping the balls into the barrel as well as hopping up to chase them as they pop out from beneath the barrel makes for a well-engaged and highly-engrossed toddler. At two years old and with the attention span of a field mouse, I can't say that about many things. I also appreciate how there aren't five hundred and seventy-two pieces to clean up after. 
 
 
Bright Starts' smart, fresh solutions for parents and their babies deliver convenience, value and most importantly, fun throughout eat day. Thanks to Bright Starts™, my toddler's laugh index has increased immensely!
