One of the greatest parts of being a parent is watching your child practice independent play. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it when Grayson actually wants to play with me. But, learning to use his imagination while he plays is such an important part of his development. At 20 months old, we have been really focusing on his development lately. I will delve more into that later this week. Lamaze Toys are designed in conjunction with some of the best child development experts to inspire healthy play while learning, and we have loved having them in the house.
The Lamaze Classic Discovery Book has been a favorite. It features brightly colored pages, friendly faces, and multiple textures and crinkles to explore. We are really into all of the different animals and the sounds that they make right now, and this books helps with that. He loves opening to a certain page and exclaiming “OWL!” It’s also fun to see his reactions to all of the different colors and textures in the book. Some pages are soft, some are silky, and some even make crinkle sounds.
The Mix & Match Caterpillar is so cute! It comes with 8 segments that are removable (by velcro), and promote your little one’s creativity. They are able to move and place the pieces anywhere they wish. This toy also features bright and fun colors, along with different textures and patterns. This is a great way for us to practice color recognition as well as matching. But, I think his favorite part is pulling all the pieces apart, if we’re being honest.
Freddie the Firefly is also filled with bright colors and fun textures. These are really great to stimulate visual development. That’s one of my favorite things about Lamaze Toys, they’re so pleasing to look at! His wings contain a peek-a-boo mirror and fun crinkled textures. Grayson loves to put Freddie in his truck and push him around, I guess they’re buddies now!
