Bright Starts “Sense”ational Stocking Stuffers Review and Giveaway (Christmas Wish List 2010)



While doing so research on my Christmas shopping list a while back I realized the for the first time since “Bug” was a tiny baby I have a baby on my shopping list and my first thoughts was “I don’t have a clue want to get this new baby” but lucky I was offered the chance to review several amazing little stocking stuffers that will help engage the babies senses and tons of fun for the little one from Bright Starts, so how could I say no????

About Bright Starts (Taken From Website):


Our Thoughts:

We were sent several toys from Bright Starts to review that would make amazing gifts for babies this holiday season as stocking stuffers or gift basket fillers!!! We received the following to review:

Lil Squeakers ($3.99) babies will squeeze these plush characters for the ultimate surprise that is sure to delight! Lil Squeakers make the perfect fit for baby’s small hands. Available at Wal-Mart and Toys R Us.

Take n’ Shake ($4.99) – pull these fun toys and watch them go! Take n’ Shake toys come different characters that can easily attach to strollers and carriers. Available at Wal-Mart, Toys R Us and Target.

Lights, Tiger, Action ($5.99) - this adorable tiger character bobbles back and forth activating lights and sounds. This character is sure to light up your baby’s world with 12 silly sounds and blinking lights. Available at Toys R Us.

Spin Around Pals ($5.99) - this fun toy is sure to keep baby engaged with 3 rotating toys and activities. The multiple textures of the frog rattle ball, mirror, and spinning elephant ears stimulate babies self discovery. Available at Toys R Us, Wal-Mart and Babies R Us Canada.

All these toys are so adorably cute and each of them are brightly colored to really catch the babies attention and help them focus their little eyes! I think all of these toys would make a wonderful addition to any baby gift basket or stocking stuffer this holiday season or even if you are looking to go to a baby shower ( I’ve got one coming up really soon myself) these would make amazing gifts for the new babies! Each of the toys mentioned above have different features to keep your baby engaged and grab their attentions!

I spit the above toys into two gift baskets for this holiday season, one of my husband’s aunts and uncles recently had a new baby and one of my closest friends has a little boy due this April so she will be getting one of the gift baskets, but we did take my husband’s aunts and uncles baby boy his gift basket on Thanksgiving and they have reported that he has really enjoyed the two toys that we gave him and that they have held up great to his play and his brother and sister who also has been enjoying them.

Bottom Line:

I think all four of the above mentioned Bright Starts baby toys are wonderful and they each do something a little different which I feel is important to keep a babies attention and really help their senses develop! We used several toys and such from Bright Starts when “Bug” was a baby and we loved them just as we love all four of the stocking stuffers we were sent to review and we feel that toys from Bright Starts is both very safe for your baby and very high quality and will last for quite some time “Bug” has actually still got most of his Bright Starts baby toys that he played with when he was little that are still in great shape and have much more use to them and when we welcome our next bundle of joy you can bet we will be introducing him/her to Bright Starts as well!

If you are looking for the perfect stocking stuffers or gift basket fillers for tiny babies or new parents this holiday season I really recommend checking out these four toys available from Bright Starts!
