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 their Yoee Baby Monkey. (Contains affiliate links.)
My 3-year-old loves to tickle his little brother with the Yoee Baby.

The Yoee Baby is cool on several levels:

  1. It’s impossible not to interact with your baby as soon as you pick up the Yoee Baby. My first instinct was to bop my baby on the head using the boa tail. It’s so soft and my baby loved it! Then I started singing silly songs while tickling him with it and he was mesmerized!
  2. It is a great toy for my baby to play with on his own. Between the crinkle paper, rattle, teether, tag, and boa tail, there’s plenty to keep my 5-month-old occupied.
  3. It’s the perfect toy for my oldest son to use when he wants to play with the baby. He likes to tickle my baby’s face, arms and feet. I’ve also been able to incorporate some of Monkey’s “backstory” when talking to my 3-year-old. He knows he’s a world traveler and has lived in Central America (which we found on our globe together.) I’ve explained that Monkey eats green bananas, penne pasta (al dente) and cheesebread. We’ve recently discovered Brazilian cheesebread and it’s quite the hit in our household.
  4. It’s machine washable. Now that I’m a Mom, those are some of my favorite words. Toys can get dirty, especially when you take them out and about. I like that I can just throw it in the washer with the rest of the clothes and not worry about it. I just let it air dry, but I’ve heard to machine dry it on a no heat setting.
  5. It fits in the diaper bag easily. I was surprised how lightweight it is. And I’m able to fit it in my diaper bag, even when my bag is full. It just slips right in. Plus, I can clip it to the car seat or my diaper bag.

Yoee Baby for Travel

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 CB GO by Chewbeads Silicone Links. Sometimes I attach it to our suitcase so my son can bat at it.
I use the Yoee Baby to entertain my son before Itsy Bitsy Yoga.

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.
