I love toys. I especially like toys that don't require batteries. My oldest son accumulated quite a few toys when he was a baby. Some are cool, others not so much. So, now that my youngest is 5 months old and started to be interested in toys, I've been trying to phase out the lame toys and add in new ones. I do a lot of online research about toys that are new and seem interactive. That's how I came across Yoee Baby. I immediately contacted them to see if I could review their product. They sent me the monkey.
The Yoee Baby is cool on several levels:
I'm always on the hunt for baby toys that travel well. And by that I mean not only do they physically hold up, but also serve a few purposes. We like to travel as light as we can, so I have to be really particular about what toys I bring with us. The Yoee Baby has been really helpful in our travels. It doesn't take up that much room in my carry-on, so we can use it for flights. Since it has the teething ring, I can attach it to practically anything with my Chewbeads GO Links. Sometimes I attach it to our suitcase so my son can bat at it.
I've even brought it to our Itsy Bitsy yoga class. It's a yoga class designed for babies and it's the one class I do just with my youngest. We're encouraged to bring toys to occupy the babies during class. It's the only toy I bring because he's fully entertained with it. I can let him chew on the handle, put it out front for Cobra position, or tickle him with it when he's on his back.
I wish that there were more animals to choose from. Right now, they offer Puppy, Kitty, Monkey, and Lion. I think adding a Fox would be a smart move (especially since they have brightly colored bushy tails.) Otherwise, this has been a toy that has gotten a lot of use in our home and I would recommend it to families with babies.
I'm a mom to a 3-year-old and a baby. We believe in traveling as a family as soon as possible and sharing our tips and tricks with other families!
