As your baby’s interests evolve, they will love to play with their familiar toys in new ways.
Here are some ideas for how to make your Lovevery toys last well past the infant months:
Bug Catcher (Little Grip Canister Set)
The Little Grip Canister Set is great for a toddler outdoor adventure walk. You can even collect bugs and caterpillars, as the air holes in the bottom of the containers will help keep little creatures alive.
First Words Practice with Lovevery Board Books
Be sure to keep simple board books handy for your toddler to practice their first words. They will love saying new words out loud and exercising their new communication skills. For example, you can read the ‘Parts of Me’ board book together—you can say the word on the first page and your toddler says the opposite. They will be so proud when they are able to “read” these first books to you.
Matching Doll and Toddler Blankets
When your toddler is around two, they might start to play pretend. A swaddle blanket is the perfect size for your toddler to put their Organic Cotton Baby Doll to bed with a blanket.
Soft Felt Balls for Playing Catch
The Felt Ball Set is great for toddlers learning to play catch. No matter how hard a sibling may throw, these soft balls won’t hurt.
This is an infant and toddler favourite ❤️ You may discover your baby starting to put all sorts of new things in the magic box (balls, spoons, other playthings) in addition to the tissues.
You can help your baby develop a sense of how different objects feel by playing the “what is it?” game. Called “The Mystery Bag” in Montessori toddler classrooms, the idea is to put different objects in the box without the child seeing what the item is. Encourage your baby to feel around inside the box, using their sense of touch to explore the object before you show them what it is. Older babies and toddlers love this game!
Secret Collections (Crinkle Bag)
The Crinkle Bag will be just the thing for your toddler when you start to discover them stashing random “collections” of different items around your home. Containers are fascinating throughout the late infant and toddler years.
Your baby may start to get the hang of stacking the rings when they’re about 15 months old. At first, they will want to take them apart, but later they will start assembling the tube and stacking rings.
Nesting, Stacking, and Fine Motor Skills (Stacking Cups + Little Grip Canister Set)
Figuring out how to nest and stack the Drip Drop cups is a challenge for two- and three-year-olds, as is nesting the containers in the Little Grip Canister Set. With lots of fine motor skills practice, your toddler will be able to work the lids onto the Little Grip Canister Set. Start with the blue handle lid, which is easiest to place, then work up to the purple flip-top lid and green screw-top lid.
Somewhere around 18-22 months, your toddler will be ready to start building 4-block towers. Click here to find out why offering too many blocks early on can actually make your baby less inclined to play with them.
Family Photo Album (Cardholders + Soft Book)
You can personalize the Soft Book, and the Standing Cardholder, by adding photos of family and friends (print size: 5×7). This is a fun way to connect your baby with loved ones, especially those they might not get to see as often.
