A special thanks to Skip Hop for providing the Miss Frugal Mommy blog with their products for free in exchange for an honest review!
My sweet little girl recently hit the six month mark and she has completely transformed into a whole new baby! In addition to being mobile and crawling throughout the house, she is also much more interested in playing with her toys. She has recently become very fascinated with a wonderful toy that allows her to have fun while learning. The Busy Bead Tree is a great toy for little ones just beginning to crawl and play on their own. The sturdy base and lightweight features makes it ideal for those little hands eager to explore all of the beads. My daughter is still learning to grasp onto toys and move them, this toy encourages her to practice those skills. I just love watching her so intensely concentrate on moving the little beads around.
Another reason I am much in favor of this toy is because it’s not over stimulating, but rather quite simple and easy for a baby to play with. There are no lights blinking, songs playing or even buttons needing to be pressed. The best toys we can provide for our children are ones that don’t do all the playing for them! The toys that require your child to explore, use their imagination and stimulate their senses. Your baby can really focus on practicing their fine motor skills with this toy.
I am a huge fan of Skip Hop products and have always been completely happy with the quality of the products we own. They have a very natural and earthy theme to their toys that I both love and adore. This is yet another high quality item from Skip Hop that we are completely satisfied with and as you can see from the interaction witnessed in the photos, my baby girl would agree if she could talk!
