Dear Internets,


Just 4 weeks to go and I think I’m entering that “40 weeks is too long, can I have my baby now?” stage some of you know and love. With this joyous phase, comes the rounding up of all my favorite parenting tools because “toys” just don’t cut it when it comes to a screaming infant who doesn’t know what it wants. There are a few things mandatory to the parent’s arsenal that fit in all gladiatorial arenas both inside and outside the home.

Out and About. 

Pram toys! Clip it onto a pram, stroller, play gym, highchair….I don’t care, just clip it onto anything near your child when you want a little peace, whimsy and tactile education. Colorful with noisy crinkly bits, horns and mirrors, the Lamaze pram toys are not only educational entertainment, they have cute names and personalities typed onto the pacaking (play along, at-home-mums and dads). Lamaze have 27 all up including  mermaids and pirates, parrots and T-rex’s but my current favorite has to be Daisy Dino.


In the Bath.

For me : Every parent needs a Boon bath pod in their life and it’s my go to gift when I know someone hasn’t beat me to it. We have the old generation Frog pod which has really made the bathroom a safe, clean and fun place to be. Kidlet loves packing away his toys and its much for effective than the old scool nets with the suction pods. My favourite from the new edition is the What pod, complete with a spot to store you soap and washcloths.

For the Toddler : Fun beats safety every time for a toddler so the kidlets current bath time favourite are Boon bubbles suction cup toys.

For bub to be : When space is a premium and your old baby bath is broken, the Boon NAKED two position collapsible bath tub was one of our first purchases, second time around.


In the kitchen.

It started with the Boon Pulp silicon feeder and then spread like fire through my Mother’s group. I ended up having to do a run to Toys are us to stock up Boon feeding toys when the kids started solids and everyone was at the wits end. Since then I’ve gone on to buy :
Squirt, a baby food dispensing spoon which was perfect for feeding bub mushy food on the go
Grass, a counter top drying rack for bottles and utensils making life cute and easy to clean
& Twig to keep all those lids and fiddly things in check.



At home.

My first little one loved the penguin squueze and bend rattle...unfortunaly we didn’t own one so he kept pinching it off other children. Fortunately we had a Lamaze symphony motion Gym to steer our baby away from a life of crime. I’ve got the space symphony and soon my niece/nephew to be will have the pond symphony.

While all this sounds like a tale of shopping, planning and to some extent addiction on my part, it’s really an excuse to celebrate the coming of kidlet 2! Tomy & Bright Green Laces would love for you to enjoy some of these wonderful products and what better way than a give away. So here’s how you play:
