“ Brand: ELC / Type: Learning Toy „
The Early Learning baby links is a must for anyone with a baby. The set is made up of six plastic links all different colours and textures. The ones that I have just purchased are a different colour to the ones shown in the photo. They cost £4 a set and they had plenty of sets in my local store.
My baby is teething so loved chewing on them one by one and then I joined some of them together she loved shaking them as it made a great noisy. One of the great things about being six separate links is there are a number of ways to give them to your baby to play with e.g. Linked in a circle, in a line, separate or in pairs. More than one set would be a lot of fun, I am certainly going to buy another set.
The links have been very useful for attaching toys to her pram. Her favourite dolly was forever falling on the floor so i have tied a ribbon around the doll's neck and then hooked a link through it and attached it to the pram.
I would really recommend this product.
My nephew lives with me and there are toys everywhere. One of the toys that he regularly enjoyed playing with when he was younger was from the Early Learning Centre and it was Baby Links, but also known as Loopy Links. There are sold at a range of different outlets and are very reasonably priced at £4.
The links are 6 different coloured circular shaped that have a small space on each link to allow you to easily separate and join then together for your child to play with. You can connect them all together to form a chain and they act as a rattle as they all clang together or they can be used individually. The are recommended that they can be used from birth.
Each loop is a different colour and has a slightly different feel or pattern, so that you baby can get used to different textures and colours as their eyesight develops. There are blues, greens, purples, yellows and oranges so that are coloured to suit boys or girls.
When my nephew started teething you also found that these were always in his month trying to help sooth his gums. He especially liked the blue link as this had bobbles on which he rubbed against his gums.
They are great when you go out as they are small enough to fit into your bag and are also lightweight so are unnoticeable.
I find them great to connect then together and attach them to the strap of the pushchair so even if your young child drops them they will not fall onto the floor. Not only can they be clipped to your pushchair, also your highchair or cot as well.
Now my nephew is a little older he no longer uses them as much, but I still use them. I connect other toys to them and attach them to the label and to the pushchair so that we do not lose anything while we are out shopping. This is great as he has a favourite teddy which we have lost and had to replace on a number of occasions it has now been discontinued so we need to make sure it is safe.
Overall for under a fiver a great product that will be used over at over again thy recommend from birth, but it wasn't till my nephew was a few months old that he started to use them and now he no longer needs them I use then to secure his toys so overall worth every penny.
I find it really hard getting rid of my daughters toys. I have a little system in place, her most played with toys are in the downstairs toy box, less played with in the toy box in her room, then the toys that are never played with in a box in my wardrobe. I was sorting out this box in my wardrobe and came across these links.
*~ What are they? ~*
These links come in a pack of six. Each one is brightly coloured, with either a different pattern or different texture on each one. They are oval shaped, and around 5cm in diameter. Each link has a small opening at the bottom meaning they can be linked together, or linked with other things.
The links are suitable from birth and available from Early Learning Centre or Mothercare for £4.
*~ Our experience ~*
I originally bought these links to keep my daughter entertained in the car, but they were soon used for all sorts of things and bought another set as they were loved so much.
Three of the links had a soft rubber part with different colours and patterns upon the rubber part. The other three are shaped differently, with two of the three having a loop the loop type shape, and the third having raised circles around the main link. Each link is brightly coloured and stimulating for babies.
These links are so versatile, I bought them for the car to attach to the straps of my daughters car seat to keep her amused during car trips. She loved looking at the bright colours and bashing them around, we soon moved them around and linked them to her straps in her buggy. We also attached some toys to the links, some toys already have a link and using these links I could hang toys from the handle of her car seat to make the toys longer and easier for her to play with. Another thing we did was attach toys to every couple of links and attaching it to her buggy so she could choose what she wanted to play with and I didn't have to worry about picking up toys she would drop on the ground, every couple of steps.
The links are so simple, yet so effective. At £4 I think these are a bargain, my daughter loved them for the first year of her life either playing with them on there own or attaching other toys to them. I would definitely recommend these!
I bought several packets of these in Mothercare, they normally cost £4 for 6 but they were in the sale and only cost £2.
The links are basically pieces of brightly coloured plastic that can be linked together into a chain. Each link has a different texture and a slightly different shape. Some also have a little rubber strip on them.
The links are said to help baby's developement by encouraging them to explore the textures and bright colours.
I initially bought these to connect my daughters toys to her pushchair as she had a habit of throwing her favourite toy on the floor then getting upset when he had to go on a 'holiday' in the washing machine! I have also found them useful just on their own to link across the bar on her car seat. I have also run a chain across the top of her Jumperoo as she loves them that much. The links connect together really easily and they also come apart easily, older baby's would be able to do this themselves.
My daughter likes using these as teethers, the different textures and rubbery strips are really kind on her gums, as they are only light they are easy to hold by a young baby. Wherever I connect these links my daughter always holds onto them. She loves them.
I would recommend these for all parents they are excellent for linking toys to but also on their own. It was the best £2 I spent!
I bought these for my daughter when she started teething, there are 6 links that will either attach together to form a chain or they can be separated. They only cost me £4 and I could not believe how quickly my daughter got attached to them. She would not go anywhere without them and if any one took them away from her she would scream. these were the first toys she could grab on to..
There are 3 different style of the links, there are the
Jagged edges and the
The round edges are amazing for teething rings and the jagged edged and wavy edged ones are great for babies exploring things with their mouths and beginning to pick up with their hands. they can be hung on the cot, from the mobile, on the pram, on the moses basket, pretty much any where.
They entertain baby and keep them occupied, they are very safe to use and can not be swallowed and there are no small parts! The different colors and designs help baby explore the different colors and designs, which also helps hand-eye co-ordination.
My daughter loved just looking at the different colors of each ring as I used to give her each ring individually then show her how to make the link, she would eventually break the link after half hour of trying as she's only just pulling things apart and then she would try smacking them together to make a chain.
A really great baby gift, it's a safe fool-proof toy that can be trusted to be fine if you turn your back for a few minutes and your baby is playing with them. I highly recommend as teething rings, but can be used as toys. :)
They're hard so it helps baby to relieve the pain from their gums fast
Having sorted out a lot of my 2 year old twins toys this week I have come across a lot of their old baby toys which I havn't got round to binning to.
One of these many toys have been there Early Learning Centre Baby Links.
These baby links are quite simply, brightly coloured, plastic links - a bit like a chain - that can be played with seperately or connected together through their 'link' attachment.
The reason I bought these in the first place was I wanted some sort of toy or entertainment to use on the twins pram when they were babies. They were only a few months old but were already becoming a bit bored of just sitting in their buggy, side by side, watching the world go by so I wanted something that could attach to their pram somehow that would hold their interest for a short while. Finding toys that could fit a double pram however proved difficult, especially as I wanted one of the ones like a steering wheel that attaches to both sides of a pram seat, so I had to look for something different.
These links could be seen as something and nothing really, they don't look much when you see them online or in the Early Learning Centre store, but as I was looking for something in particular these jumped out at me.
Being 'links' I quickly realised these could link on and attach to the twins straps on their pram. As they were only a few months old they wouldn't be able to unattach them at such a young age, but they would be able to enjoy the feel, and the look of these links attached to them. It gave them something different to look at and touch. These links are in fact suitable for children aged from birth to 1 year to.
The links are a decent size, each link being a slight bit bigger than a large egg I'd say. Each link is coloured and patterned differently, which adds to the baby appeal, colours all different shades can be quite appealing and stimulating especially for younger babies when they are just getting used to the world and their surroundings. Some had holes/circles on them, others had lines, and others were just plain colours. domr of the edges are wavy and others were smooth - all providing something new for your baby to feel and touch. There was about 7 links in a set and it cost just £4 for a set. Not only are the colours appealing for a baby but the touch and feel for them is something new and interesting too. They have a plasticy, rubbery feel to them which introduces new textures to a baby. What makes these even more interesting to a young baby is the fact that they move so freely, they don't stay in one place and they are not heavy at all so your baby can have great fun moving these colourful rings around, dropping them, picking them back up, listening to the faint clacking sound as the plastic rings knock together. So not only do these just act as a chain, but they sort of act as a rattle thanks to the noise they make to.
Not only can these link to a pram and act as a pram toy but they can be linked onto a cot too which is another thing my boys enjoyed. They would dangle in their cots, and the twins would knock them, pull them, clang them together and they would soon drift off to sleep happily, probably still picturing and hearing these colourful rings.
So if you are after something that is actually quite interesting and stimulating for a young child despite it looking like 'nothing' in store, these are a wonderful toy, especially for the younger babies just beginning to touch, feel, reach out and realise their hands can do these wonderful and magical things.
