From the convenient 3-in-1 Rocker Napper to the Gymini Move & Play Mat (which we used more than any other toy), Tiny Love baby gear has been a part of our lives since we brought our little girl home. I’ll be sad to see some of those things go as we pass them on to another little one, but now we’re welcoming the next stage of TinyLove toys into our home!
A new addition to the Tiny Love lineup is baby’s ultimate exploring adventure: Tiny Love’s Flexi Play. This multi-tasking toy is an innovative activity center that can be positioned in a wide variety of play positions from classic overhead to tummy time and even a bridge to motivate crawling infants. Watch the versatility of Flexi Play and see for yourself how many different ways your baby will play!
Any little face would light up while unwrapping these bright colors.
Another fun toy from Tiny Love that makes a great holiday gift is Follow Me Fiona (there’s a Follow Me Fred, too.) Fiona is a friendly dog who rolls away when touched, encouraging baby to crawl after it. Our baby girl learned to crawl in a matter of days, and I think Fiona was a big help in prompting her to become more mobile. Fiona has variable speeds, and also barks and plays a tune as she interacts with your little one. Plus, her accordian-like middle section allows you to set her up to walk in a straight line away from baby, or in a circle around baby!
Here’s a quick video of how fun Fiona is to follow!

Tiny Love has offered one lucky reader a Follow Me Fiona (or Fred) just in time for the holidays!

Mother’s Day, my birthday (40!), my anniversary…they’re all coming up soon. And what do I want, besides an 8th day in the week strictly for relaxing? There’s one thing I covet above all others: some snuggly muslin from aden + anais.
I fell head over heels in love with aden + anais products when I got the bamboo swaddle blankets I put on my baby registry. I had heard such great things, and boy did they ever live up to the hype! They’re softer than soft and such a generous size for really good swaddling. We got a few of the Classic Muslin Swaddle Blankets, too, and they also became fast favorites.
You may be wondering what the big deal is about muslin. Here it is, from the experts themselves:
“Muslin is a finely-woven breathable fabric believed to have originated in Bangladesh during the Middle Ages. Its delicate yet durable weave makes the fabric stretchy and, therefore, ideal for swaddling, as the natural “give” allows the blanket to be tucked snuggly around a baby without being overly restrictive.
The lightweight muslin also permits air to circulate around the baby’s body, while still providing comfort and warmth without the worry that the baby may overheat in moderate weather. Cotton muslin is also a workhorse fabric, in that wraps woven from this natural fiber stands up to repeated washings only becoming softer — and better — with age.”

Last year, my son received a Hallmark Recordable Storybook as a gift. The story was Frosty the Snowman, the voice was my Dad’s, and the tears that fell when I heard it…well, I couldn’t begin to count them.
Watching my son’s face light up as he turned the pages and heard Pop Pop’s voice was enough to turn me into a tearful mess (and that’s a pretty out-of-character response for me.)
When I heard that “Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump” in my Dad’s voice (which is also pretty out-of-character for him), I just melted. My mom said he retreated to a private area downstairs and recorded the whole book without anyone listening. I’m sure he felt a little self-conscious, but he did it for his grandson, and I honestly can’t imagine a more meaningful keepsake. (And, by the way, my often-tech-challenged father said it was really easy to do and it turned out flawlessly!) I’m not sure I’ve ever heard anything more touching.
So, given that these books make such thoughtful gifts, I’m including them in my Baby Guide as one of the best new baby gifts I can think of. Continue reading
