Mama-Baby Lamb Action Musical
(Kids Preferred $18 Score:)

Wind the baby lamb on its Mama’s back and it turns slowly to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb. A sweet plush musical in white non-shed plush with pink satin trim hooves, gossamer bows and stitched features. Of course, the pink trim makes it very gender specific. We like the real music box sound. So much more pleasing than so many electronic musicals. Newborn and up.

(Gund $17.95 Score:)

A bright yellow humpty dumpty shaped critter with big stitched eyes and stripes and licks of eye-catching black and white trims. Attached are many dangly teethers, squeakers, and rings for little hands to explore. Looks a lot like the colorful Woozit toys we have told you about in the past. Hang this one on stroller or car seat.

Infantino Monkeys Jungle Retreat Activity Gym
(Infantino $59.99 Score:)

We like the textured and clear graphics on this  36” x 28 ˝ “ play mat with a warm orange, teal, brown and green palate. Patterned cross bars allow for dangly toys for baby to gaze at and eventually reach out and touch. It has a polka-dotted tummy time pillow and peek-a-boo surprises. We can do without some of the electronic sounds and lights on the Tiki Hut, but baby cannot turn them on, so you don’t need to, either. The safety mirror on the same hut is somewhat distorted, but that said, this is a more attractive mat than most. Newborn and up.

Tiny Love Sweet Island Dreams Mobile
(Tiny Love $44.99 Score:)

One of our pet peeves is that most mobiles don't have objects that point down towards the baby. Most are just bland room decorations that go round and round with no focus on the intended user- your baby! In contrast, this new mobile from Tiny Love (as with their other entries in this category) get the point. Here, there's a monkey, giraffe and bird that all are tilted towards your baby. They move slowly so that they provide great tracking opportunities. Also a plus there is a remote control so that you can turn on the music (Mozart or Bach) or two nature sounds. They each play for twenty minutes. Remember mobiles need to be removed as soon as your baby can reach them (usually by 5 months).

Kids Preferred Peter Rabbit Waggies Musical
(Kids Preferred $24.99 Score:)

Peter Rabbit is all done up in his blue jacket with textured velour and stitched brass buttons, his long ears sit above a face done with stitched features and he's clutching a bright orange carrot. Wind him up and he plays Brahms Lullaby while his head moves slowly. Put him on his tummy for best balance and easier to see motion. Also available a Mama Rabbit sans music. She's more of a collector's item. Peter also comes as a hand puppet that is ideal for tracking games and for older sibs to use with baby.
