BOX 3: THE SENSER (Months 5-6)
Your baby’s world is EXPLODING! Your tiny blessing is starting to reach, grab, and explore the world, primarily through their mouths.
My favorite toy in this box is the Magic Tissue Box, an adorable wooden box that comes with a set of interlinking fabric ‘tissues’ for your baby to pull out sequentially. Noah loves to lay on his belly and roll around while he pulls each square out. There is also a ball that helps your baby strengthen their grip, some cute socks with ribbons and a rattle, a silly wobble toy, and a book to expand baby’s vocabulary. Plus, with the anticipation of baby starting solids LovEvery includes a beautiful colorful bib and sweet little stainless steel spoon.
As with all their toys, this box contained MANY pieces that my toddler repeatedly claims as his own, an excellent sign of longevity! These toys are timeless and grow as your child’s abilities grow.
