Hide 'n Spin {giveaway}


I can't believe Ford's first birthday has come and gone. I remember when he hit 6 months old in February thinking, wow, we are getting closer to his birthday than his actual birth-day (and call me crazy but that's when the birthday party planning began...you only turn one once!). I knew Ford was going to get showered with mountains of gifts, even though I requested no gifts at his party, so I wanted to keep my gift to him simple. His best baby friend Ethan has an activity table where you insert balls and they pop out the sides and to say Ford is obsessed is an understatement. Since we already own an activity table I was excited to find the Bright Starts Hide 'n Spin Monkey. Before having a baby I vowed to keep my home clear of battery operated singing light up toys but let's face it, those are babies' favorites! 
 
 
I decided not to wrap the gift since I would be the one unwrapping it anyway and Ford lit up when we put it on the ground!
 
This is for me?!

I love that the Hide 'n Spin Monkey toy offers a few forms of educational learning while still being fun! It counts the balls as you put them in the monkey's hat and there are a few different shapes and color buttons to press and learn about. Ford turns into a giggle box when the monkey has all the balls in his hat, spits them out, and starts "who who ha ha-ing"! Speaking of baby laughs, do you know what a Baby Laugh Index is? Find your baby's Baby Laugh Index here! Ford has a 78.8% probability of becoming an Insta Ha! Laugher.




Ford would put all the balls in the monkey's hat and then stand and clap for himself! My mom, dad, sister, and husband were all there so he was definitely putting on a show. The monkey makes music and Ford started dancing for the first time the night we gave it to him! 




A video to show you how cute it is

The Bright Starts™ Hide 'n Spin Monkey has been in our home for about a week and the first thing Ford does when he wakes up in the morning is point to it and clap. I will put him on the floor and he immediately crawls over to start playing. There is no greater joy than watching your child learn, grow, and enjoy themselves with new toys or new surroundings. I truly believe that laughter is essential to growth and I love providing a fun, silly, and educational environment for my son.

Kamden's current favorite thing is his Joovy Spoon walker and makes a FIERCE DASH across the kitchen if the fridge doors are open. It's quite hilarious to listen to the wheel motor-scoot across the tile floor. The kid has one speed: GO! I love this Hide'N'Spin, definitely an item to consider for his birthday (Dec 19) or Christmas. :)
