Success Through Play™ comments:


The 6-piece Earth Brights gift set from Sassy Baby is an affordable Baby Shower Gift that offers exceptional value! Each toy is presented beautifully on an earth friendly, recycled paperboard. Each toy is designed to inspire a particular skill, for example: "inspires grasping" or "inspired touch." and you can glance at the top right hand corner of the paperboard, to view the skill for that particular toy. The paperboard has a tree printed on it and the leaves of the tree offer toy highlights such as "shake for clickety-clack sound" thus parents can see the features at a glance. The Sassy Earth Brights Collection is"inspired by nature" and we applaud Sassy baby for creating this beautiful, eco-friendly line of toys which are non-plastic and will inspire creativity.

Play with me!
Each toy comes with a set of suggestions for how parents may want to incorporate that particular toy into play. This will particularly come in hand for new parents! You won't see any plastic, but in it's place, beautiful quality hardwoods which are smoothly sanded and delightful to the touch, paired with colorful textured fabrics. The 6-piece gift set includes a variety of toys which will encourage grasping skills, tactile, visual and auditory stimulation. Brightly colored water based finishes will attract and hold baby's interest. The textured fabrics include smooth satin, fluffy, corduroy stripes, terry cloth, felt which offer baby a variety of tactile stimulation. Some of the toys include crinkly fabrics which will encourage baby to practice grasping skills while receiving auditory feedback. Some toys in this collection have cords which baby can pull on! The full collection offers baby a multi-sensory learning experience and plenty of fun!

At about 6 months of age, when your baby an sit up independently, will he really begin to explore these toys to their fullest. Please note that each toy in this collection ranges in weight from 2.0oz to 4.3oz, so we would suggest saving the heavier toys for when baby can sit up independently and has sufficient strength and coordination to play with them.

Parents tend to throw a bunch of toys in front of baby, which can easily overwhelm him. Introduce one toy at a time, to help your baby to develop attention skills. Try placing baby in a variety of positions when playing with a toy, to encourage gross motor skills. When baby is young, try side-lying when she is awake, which will draw both her arms together, helping her to explore toys. Encourage tummy time by reserving her favorite Earth Brights toy for this special time, so that baby is motivate to play and hold her head up when she is on her tummy. Get down on the floor and encourage baby to explore these toys, while moving his body!

The 6 piece Earth Brights Gift Set will make a fantastic Baby Shower Gift which will last for years to come! A 4-piece gift set is also available. Toys may also be purchased individually.

The wooden dove looks so cute. I wish that quality wooden toys were available in my generation. I come from the plastic toys generation.

I love the combination of Wood and Textured Fabric. This allows the baby to experience a wide range of textures which is great for their sensory development. I am looking forward to seeing the Earth Brights Collection Expand!
