Tiny Love has recently announced its newest collection, My Nature Pals, which features nature-inspired colors and design, and innovative products that have been developed especially with baby and parents in mind. The My Nature Pals collection includes a new version of the popular Tiny Love Gymini as well as a crib mobile which are now available in stores, the My Nature Pals Stroll portable stroller arch will be available in spring 2013.
We have been highly pleased with the Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper and I couldn’t wait to see the My Nature Pals Gymini & My Nature Pals Crib Mobile.
The Gymini® My Nature Pals™ is great for babies 0-12 months old and allows baby to develop fine motor skills, gross motor skills as well as cause and effect. The play mat itself is very bright and colorful and is perfect for tummy time. The Gymini can be used with or without the toy bar. Attaching the toy bar is very easy, you just have to attach it in four places, one in each corner.
One feature that I loved about the Gymini® My Nature Pals is the smart motion system. The smart motion system allows caregivers to easily move the toys to within baby’s reach, just simply move the orange piece and you can make the toys higher or lower on each side. When baby is young you can move the toys close and as the child grows you can move them higher. There are plenty of toys to keep baby engaged including a beaver and frog rattle, a peek-a-boo dragonfly, a mirror and a crinky beaver tail. There sliding rings allow you to easily move the position of the toys and there are extra rings available for additional toys.
The Gymini also includes a baby activated Caterpillar that plays 30 min of continuous music, 10 different tunes and also lights up. It can be attached to the play-mat or can be used for individual play.
Buy It: The Gymini® My Nature Pals™ is available at baby specialty retail and online stores including Babies “R” Us, Buy Buy Baby and Amazon for $59.99.
My Nature Pals™ Mobile:
There’s just something about music that seems to calm both of my boys, even to this day when I play soft music they seem to calm down and get into more of a relaxed state. The My Nature Pals™ Mobile is recommended for children 0-12 months and can easily attach to the side of the crib. The My Nature Pals™ Mobile features a unique nature theme, a leaf-shaped music box and and set of smiling nature pals, including a bird, butterfly and frog, the frog is the cutest. The music box plays 9 different tunes in 3 categories and offers 30 minutes of non-repetitive music. As the toys move in a circular motion to the tunes the nature pals tummies light up creating an enchanted light display.
One feature that I thought was great in this mobile is that it grows with baby. As baby gets older and can sit/stand you have the option to remove the arm but leave the music box / night light attached to the crib. There will be no little hands tugging and pulling on the mobile with it removed but baby can still enjoy the music. Baby will also sense independence when he/she learns to activate the music box by himself/herself.
Buy It: The My Nature Pals™ Mobile is available at baby specialty retail and online stores including Babies “R” Us, Buy Buy Baby and Amazon for $44.99.
