“ Brand: A Taste Of Champagne / Type: Learning Toy „
My mum is an Avon representative and when she saw that these stacking cups she could not resist getting them for my daughter.
The cups are brightly coloured in blue, red and yellow and are numbered 1-10. Each cup has two small holes in the base I assume to that air can pass through if child is holding very close to their face or over their mouths as they tend to do.
On the underside each cups has small bumps to match the number on the cup for example cup 5 has 5 small bumps. I think this is a lovely touch and along with the printed numbers could be used for educational counting games as baby gets older.
The cups are very well made and durable and easy to wipe clean. They are lightweight and easy for baby to hold and grip.
My little girl is 9 months old and was instantly very taken with these cups and they have become a firm favourite going everywhere with her. They can stack inside one another for easy storage so do not take up much space in our baby bag.
My daughter loves us to build towers for her with the cups and then she crawls towards them giggling ready to knock them over. She thinks this is a brilliant game, and would quite happily play for hours.
She also loves to use the cups to make noise banging them onto any available surface or clapping with them. The cups have stood up to this very well and despite near constant use over the last few weeks still look like new.
My daughter also likes to play with these in the bath. She loves that due to the two little holes in the base of each cup the water leaks out and she gleefully tries to catch it.
My little girl does not use these for stacking herself yet but she has found so many inventive ways to play with these. They are incredible versatile and useful and we can only highly recommend them- indeed we have even purchased a spare set.
I really can see us getting lots more use out of these yet and think she will be playing with them for quite some time to come especially as when she is older we can also use these for counting games.
They can be brought from Avon representatives of from the Avon website and are even on Amazon. My mum paid around £5 for these and I think this is excellent value.
