“ Brand: Lamaze / Type: Kangaroo baby rattle / baby toy / Age: 3 months + „
I really like the Lamaze range of Toys for babies because they are such Simple Designs but always incorporate Great ideas for the babys' Development plus they are always nice and Colourful! So I was really pleased at Christmas time when my Son received a number of Lamaze toys from relatives. He was only 3 Months Old at the time so he wasn't playing with Toys properly yet, but there were still certain things that would catch his eye.
The Lamaze Sydney and Sandy Kangaroo was actually my favourite of all the Lamaze toys that he received as I thought the design was really cute. It is basically the Mummy Kangaroo which is Red in colour with a little baby Kangaroo in its brightly Coloured pouch. Your baby can take the smaller Kangaroo in and out of the pouch too if they wish and the little Kangaroo makes a "Crinkly" sound when you do this. The big Kangaroo also has brightly Coloured Ears and Feet etc. so there's plenty of lovely Colours to catch your baby's attention.
I found that when my Son was first Learning to play with toys, it was the Sounds that stimulated him the most and he was fascinated at any Noise that one of his toys would make. So aside from the "crinkly" noise that the small Kangaroo makes, the big Kangaroo's tail also "crinkles" too and then there's the coloured Plastic rings that go around the kangaroos' tail. My Son enjoyed clanking these together and just jingling them about to make a Sound and this actually amused him for quite a while. There is also a little White ring attached to the Kangaroo which most of the Lamaze toys have, this makes it easy to attach to a Pram or Car Seat for baby to play with or even put it around your babys' wrist for them to hold onto it easily.
My son has liked his Kangaroo from 3 Months old and he still plays with it now at 6 Months so it's definetely been a worth while Gift. I think we'll get even more use out of it in the future as I will probably use it when helping to teach my Son colours. Most Lamaze toys cost £9.99 including this one and they are quite widely available on most baby and toy website, even Amazon.co.uk usually sell it. There are quite a lot of toys in the Lamaze range so you could collect a few for your baby.
