Lamb & Bear were very lucky to be sent a gift each from the team at Sophie La Girafe. They are both already huge fans of their Sophie la Girafe teether. 13 months on, Lamb still laughs when I squeeze his Sophie. Bear, however, has chewed hers so much the squeak has broken!
Bear got FanFan the fawn to nibble on.
Both gifts were very well received by Lamb & Bear. In fact, they happily shared with each other! The wooden stacker is recommended for ages 12+ month, and FanFan is for ages 3+ month, but after watching Lamb & Bear playing with their gifts, we realised both toys were enjoyed equally. Taking into consideration their 5 month age gap, Marnie enjoyed nibbling on the wooden discs, while Jaxson enjoyed making FanFan squeak!
FanFan is just as lovely as Sophie. A really cute design and soft and squidgy for the little ones gums. We are currently waiting for Baby Bear’s toothy number one to make an appearance, so she is definitely going to put FanFan to good use!
As for Lamb, we have a love for wooden toys in our house (secretly it’s my obsession, obviously a 13 month old doesn’t know what wood is, but I can pretend!) So I was super excited when we opened his wooden stacker. Over the past few weeks he has started to really concentrate when playing. Sorting shapes, putting things in boxes, taking them out again (and again, and again!) When we gave him the stacker, he really tried to stack the rings, and clapped away when he finally managed to (another new thing he has learned this month, clapping!)
Baby Bear also enjoyed playing with the stacker, (she’s getting rather confident and likes to steal everything off Lamb). As she is teething quite a lot, she has a habit of putting everything into her mouth. Which obviously can be dangerous if that’s not what its made for. One thing Vicky and I are really impressed with, is the safety mechanism of the stacker. As you can see in the photo, the stick moves from side to side, preventing any accidents if the baby falls on it while upright. Something not all toys have these days.
To us, Sophie la girafe products scream high quality. Everything from the colours and names of the products (we love FanFan), to the packaging and the website is branded beautifully. As I work in fashion (and Vicky works in marketing) we are both a sucker for pretty box and and unique and quirky brand. We are both genuinely grateful to be reviewing for Sophie la Giraffe.
