Tiny Love – My Nature Pals Stroll {Giveaway}

Before anyone out there decides to grab their phone or email account, no, I am not pregnant. Chill! Yeah, there’re still family members out there, scattered all over the world (like *cough* Sweden) who insist that we should try for a girl. Yeah, not happening. :P

 

Tiny Love – My Nature Pals Stroll

Tiny Love - My Nature Pals

Recently I got the opportunity of working with Tiny Love on a review which, even though I do not have babies, I was more than happy to do!! Baby toys are so darn cute…and even at their age, my boys loved toying and goofing around with Tiny Love’s My Nature Pals. 

Now that my boys are too old for strollers, or too cool for them, I wish I would have had this amazing toy to keep them entertained when on the go. Instead, we had a few of the plastic chains, some tiny stuffed animals hanging from them, and a mirror. They were always well behaved and would only wail when hungry. It would have still made an awesome toy.

 

Tiny Love – My Nature Pals: Features

Reasons are many for why I find My Nature Pals to be an awesome toy. For instance, it fits on most strollers and baby carriers, meaning there is no need to have more than one for each. Plus, once you are done with it, or need extra space, or anything, the stroller toy can be easily folded and stored away!

Also, the colors are bright and neutral so both boys and girls can play with them (not that there is anything wrong with boys liking purples and pinks, my oldest likes purple).

One of the feautres I like best is the attachment joints. It might be its chunkiness or the colors…or the way they look, I think they are awesome. They are bright and they are part of the toy and not just a piece of it.

These little claws allow for the Tiny Love stroller toy to be able to attach to both stroller and car seats.

They also look like little orange robot hands! Or, is it just me?

This toy is great for two age stages. From 0+, batting and sensory exploration: the colors and pattern are great for sensory exploration; the butterfly is specially designed for batting (always loved seeing my boys’ reaction to the toy being batted flinging back at them).

As mothers we all know the importance of mirrors:  they teach babies how to focus, track images, and explore their face and the things it can do (smiles, winks, frowns, etc). So of course there is a mirror! There has to be a mirror!

It also caters to babies 5m+, pulling for cause and effect learning. Learning cause and effect has to be even better than being surprised by a swinging toy. I am sure that, if you are a mom, the look of pride in your child’s eyes is the best thing ever. Seeing your baby realize that if they pull the handle the flower spins is amazing. Then they won’t stop.

This handle can be turned into a teether, hence the dotted texture on it. Genius!

The flower can also be spun without the need to pull on the handle. The middle of the flower will surely keep them enthralled. I tried spinning the flower, and got dizzy from looking into it!

There is also this cute little crinkly frog and an even cuter squirrel whose tummy is a colorful rattle. These two would have been my oldest son’s favorite. He always loved the crinkly toys that made sound every time he would touch them. Plus, most babies love rattles, right?!

 

All in all these is a great developmental toy that will not only keep your little one entertained for a while, but it will also teach a few important life lessons.

    I’ve always loved their mats, http://www.tinylove.com/Product/English/Gymini_Move_and_Play.html

    Not sure if it’s IE9, that I’m Canadian or an incorrect link but your Tiny Love links don’t point me to THEIR website. I found them from Facebook.

    Thanks for making this open to Canadians.

    The 3 in 1 rocker napper.
    ne way to prevent the decay of information from STM is to use working memory to rehearse it. Maintenance rehearsal is the process of repeating information mentally or out loud with the goal of keeping it in memory. We engage in maintenance rehearsal to keep something that we want to remember (e.g., a person’s name, e-mail address, or phone number) in mind long enough to write it down, use it, or potentially transfer it to long-term memory.

    If we continue to rehearse information, it will stay in STM until we stop rehearsing it, but there is also a capacity limit to STM. Try reading each of the following rows of numbers, one row at a time, at a rate of about one number each second. Then when you have finished each row, close your eyes and write down as many of the numbers as you can remember.

    019

    3586

    10295

    861059

    1029384

    75674834

    657874104

    6550423897

    If you are like the average person, you will have found that on this test of working memory, known as a digit span test, you did pretty well up to about the fourth line, and then you started having trouble. I bet you missed some of the numbers in the last three rows, and did pretty poorly on the last one.

    The digit span of most adults is between five and nine digits, with an average of about seven, as noted by Miller [5] . But if we can only hold a maximum of about nine digits in short-term memory, then how can we remember larger amounts of information than this? For instance, how can we ever remember a 10-digit phone number long enough to dial it?

    One way we are able to expand our ability to remember things in STM is by using a memory technique called chunking. Chunking is the process of organizing information into smaller groupings (chunks), thereby increasing the number of items that can be held in STM. For instance, try to remember this string of 12 letters:

    XOFCBANNCVTM

    You probably won’t do that well because the number of letters is more than the magic number of seven.

    Now try again with this one:

    MTVCNNABCFOX

    Would it help you if I pointed out that the material in this string could be chunked into four sets of three letters each? I think it would, because then rather than remembering 12 letters, you would only have to remember the names of four television stations. In this case, chunking changes the number of items you have to remember from 12 to only four.

    Experts rely on chunking to help them process complex information. Herbert Simon and William Chase [8] showed chess masters and chess novices various positions of pieces on a chessboard for a few seconds each. The experts did a lot better than the novices in remembering the positions because they were able to see the “big picture.” They didn’t have to remember the position of each of the pieces individually, but chunked the pieces into several larger layouts. But when the researchers showed both groups random chess positions—positions that were unlikely to occur in real games—both groups did equally poorly, because in this situation the experts lost their ability to organize the layouts, as shown in the following figure. The same occurs for basketball. Basketball players recall actual basketball positions much better than do nonplayers, but only when the positions make sense in terms of what is happening on the court, or what is likely to happen in the near future, and thus can be chunked into bigger units. [9]
