Eco-friendly Blocks With Sound Effects

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Every baby needs a set of wooden blocks to start a collection for when she’s older. This set is a great introduction to wooden blocks as, long before baby is old enough to stack them, she can explore the shapes and get a surprise sound effect when shaking the colored blocks. These ones are hollow and filled with beads which rattle with different tones when shaken.
The labeling on the product says for two years up, but there are no pieces small enough to choke a baby and most older babies would enjoy them. The wooden blocks are made from environmentally friendly rubber wood from a sustainable source, and painted with non-toxic dyes and paints and formaldehyde free glue. Get this as a new baby gift and you can be sure that it will be used long after baby has grown out of most of her other baby gifts.
Costs $25 from Amazon.com

An Eco-friendly Diaper Bag For Dad

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

Most diaper bags are designed for moms to carry and lots now come in stylish designs that are almost fashionable! But what about Dads who are taking care of baby?

Here at last is a diaper bag that Dads can be comfortable toting about. Made in tough recycled fabric in a masculine khaki green it has all the convenient pockets and compartments essential for a diaper bag, with a padded changing mat, cell-phone holder, key clip, bottle holder and all the rest.

One design restriction to bear in mind is that a 15 inch laptop will only fit in the main compartment, where it isn’t safe from all the stickiness of life with a baby… otherwise this diaper bag is well designed for Dads (and Moms!) on the move with their babies.
Costs $92.95 from Amazon.com
