The Senser Play Kit | 5- to 6-Month-Old Baby Toys | Lovevery

WHAT DID WE THINK?

We are so impressed with the amazing quality of these kits, we took a look at the 5-6 month Sensor Kit which contained:

Play Guide Months 5-6

Ideas for how to play during months 5‑6, backed by all the research you don’t have time to read

Tummy Time Wobbler

Make tummy time more fun while building core muscle strength for crawling and walking

Play Socks

You found your feet! Build leg strength and body control with these playful socks

Parts of Me' Board Book

Help your baby expand their vocabulary by learning the names of different parts of the body

Organic Cotton Rainbow Ball

Purposefully designed to be easy to grasp and move, to help build dexterity and coordination

Magic Tissues

Linkable tissues for the tissue box—also fun for peekaboo and mouthing

Magic Tissue Box

Babies love to pull tissues out and put them back in as they explore containment

Spinning Rainbow

Perfect for practicing fine motor skills and reaching with both hands at once

These play boxes are fantastic and the toys inside are mainly made from wood and high quality materials meaning they are more environmentally friendly and certainly high quality.  Each toy has been really well thought out and researching to suit the childs ages.  It's lovely to see toys we wouldn't necessarily think about buying... such as the tissue box, however the kids absoutely love it.  We really like the addition of the play guide for parents providing the thought process behind each toy included and suggested ideas for play.  These boxes make such lovely gift ideas, however at £80 per box they are not cheap and therefore we would say these are a more elaborate gift idea not for everyones budget.

WHAT DID WE THINK?
These little bikes are so incredibly cute and amazingly well built, this will easily last your little one until they ready for a big bike and then easily go on to be resold or handed down time and time again.  We have come across many balance bikes over the years but few with as much attention to detail and quality as these.  We love the funky little design and such a great bright range of colours too and as a bonus there is so little assembly needed on these they are great for CHristmas and your little one will be zooming around in no time.  The in buily=t carry handle is such a great inclusion, we have all been there trying to carry a little bike whilst keeping hold of a toddler too so this makes it super easy to carry and also help steady your child while they start to learn too.

Perfect for those kids dreaming of becoming the next you tube sensation, pop star or their very own show.  This kit has pretty much all you need and it's really easy for kids to use too, younger ones may need a little help initially but soon pick up the functions and will be greeting their own masterpieces in no time. The included green screen is a great addition but again smaller children may need help finding a suitable place to hang it.  However this little device is far better than you would imagine, all of the editing takes place on the device so no need for additional software, pc or phone editing. It's great for shooting little trick shot videos too.  All in all a great piece of kit your 5-12 year old will probably love to find under the tree this Christmas.

Perfect for snuggling

Looking for a gift idea that feels like a hug? Personalised cushions are a great way to create a one-of-a-kind accent piece for someone special. Whether you feature treasured photos or celebrate their favourite colour, you can create a piece they’ll always love to keep close.

Designed your way

Made of soft (yet durable) 100% polyester, personalised photo cushions make comfy accessories for beds, loveseats and more. Plus, you have plenty of design options: Print on a single side, match the front to the back or upload something completely different onto each side.

Seamless photo uploads

To start creating your personalised cushions, upload the high-resolution image of your choice. Look over your design and add any final touches you might like — then we’ll take care of the rest. Your photo cushion will be printed on high-quality fabric and will arrive ready to wow.

WHAT DID WE THINK?

These are such a beautiful idea and great keepsakes to give as gifts for any age.  We were super impressed with the quality, we expected the print to be at least a little grainy, however the image as you can see is incredibly crisp and clear and the material itself is super soft and silky.

A really fantastic quality gift at a really affordably price too.

Cushion RRP from £15.99

WHAT DID WE THINK?

These blankets come in two sizes starting at 127cm x 152cm so really are a fantastic size, again we expected a slightly grainy image but were really impressed to see the quality of these.  They look fantastic and are super snuggly and soft to cosy up with.  Personally ours will be gifted to use as a bed throw but they are also amazing for sofa snuggle blankets.  Although we went for a custom emote design, as with the cushions you can have anything you like printed on the blanket and the software on the Vista Print website is super easy to use making these perfectly accessible and easy to order even for the techno phobes out there
