This N That with Olivia’s Baby Gift Guide will feature products from the best baby brands out there in the form of reviews and sometimes giveaways. Our first little one, Liam Wesley arrived on September 22, 2014 – a few weeks earlier than his due date of October 1, 2014. We’ve been searching for the best baby products for our little boy all through my pregnancy and have already featured some in our Gift Guide!
Bright Startsdelivers fresh solutions for parents and their babies, offering convenience, value and fun all day everyday! they offer toys that are fun, bright and keep your baby entertained. They are also durable and last a long time. We were given the opportunity to review some Bright Starts products for This N That with Olivia’s Baby Gift Guide. Liam joined our family just over 3 months ago, so we were sent some toys that are for ages 6 months and up! Even though the ages say 6 months and up, Liam is enjoying looking at the colors and gripping the toys.
We were sent 2 toys to try out–
Bright Starts™ just put a whole new spin on monkey business with the Having a Ball™ Hide ‘n Spin Monkey™! This irresistible monkey will keep baby engaged and on the move. Press the bright lights on the monkey’s hat to hear the names of colors. Practice motor skills by picking up balls and putting them into monkey’s hat. Press the monkey’s nose to see the balls drop into the Monkey’s hat and down into the barrel and spin round and round. Watch the monkey hide in the barrel and come back up to play again! Open or close the leaf gates to control the ball-chasing fun and light up buttons allow baby to hear colors and shapes, along with silly monkey sounds and melodies. Baby can sit and play now, and stand to play with monkey later. Take the time to be silly, live in the moment and enjoy the best sound in the entire world – your baby’s laughter.

This toy is adorable and very colorful! I cannot wait for Liam to play more with it as he gets older. It is fun, he enjoys watching me play with it and gets a huge smile on his face when I do. I know that as he gets older he will love playing with this toy. It makes fun and exciting noise (thank goodness it came with batteries) that he enjoyed listening to and watching the lights as well. Liam can’t sit up on his own yet, but he enjoys being propped up with pillows including the boppy pillow or sitting with me to play. He is surely starting to grab more toys, it’s great to see him grow.
3-in-1 Step N Ride Lion
With 3 different ways to play, the Having a Ball™ 3-in-1 Step ‘n Ride Lion™ from Bright Starts™ is roaring with fun! Baby can sit and play, push and walk behind, or sit and ride. Even the youngest baby can sit and feed balls into the lion’s mouth, then lift the door to re-discover them. Press his nose to make the balls spin around his mane. When baby can stand, they can push and walk behind the lion to watch balls spin around in the mane, hear fun melodies and silly sounds. When baby is read to ride, the lion converts in a snap to a fun ride on. When baby scoots along, they can watch the balls spin around in the mane. With three ways to play this adorable Lion will grow with your baby for hours of fun.

This toy is adorable too! I love how Bright Starts has toys that are colorful and interactive. Liam isn’t able to sit up or sit on this toy yet but I know that he will love it once he does. Soon, he will be moving all around our house with these toys and we won’t be able to keep up. I love that the balls spin in the front when the toy moves and that the toy offers options including sitting and playing, walking behind or riding it!
Overall, we love the 2 Bright Starts toys that we were sent for review. As Liam gets older I know that we will be purchasing some new toys and I am sure that Bright Starts will be on the top of our list. When you look at the Bright Starts website you see that they have a wide variety of toys and baby items, perfect for gift giving!!
