Fisher-Price Activity Box

Hello mommies!

Well this particular review has been more than overdue, credits to my mommy brain dabbling into multiple things!!

Here i am going to review one of our first and favourite toys, Activity box by Fisher Price.

This activity box/cube was gifted to A by one of my very good friends from school. It was introduced to A when he was 6 months old. Initially it didn't interest him much. Just the lights and sound, what more can we expect from a 6mo.

I used to put the cube infront of him and let him explore it. By the time he was 8 months old he knew everything that he could do with it, that was quite a lot, given the no. of activities. The shape sorting needs finer skills, so he couldn't do that, but he knew if if something was put from top it would come out from the hippos mouth.

I keep rotating the toys, but this is one toy that has constantly been on our shelf since the time we received it.

The box has 5 sides and multiple activities to engage your little one. 8 shapes that can be sorted from the top, these shapes spill out as the baby lifts the hippo's mouth on one ofvthe sides.
  • One side has a dummy phone and a colorful keypad to teach numbers and colors.
  • On another side there is this cute butterfly book that plays "abcd " and a number song when one flips the page.
  • One of the sides has a peekaboo lion. The interactive lion blurts out different things each time it is pushed down.
  • Below the peekaboo lion is a piano playing different notes and blinking lights.
  • There is also an attached spiral bead bar, rolling ball and leaf shaped clankers.
The Fisher price activity cube is good to enhance the fine motor skills, hand and eye coordination, sensory and linguistic skills. The toy can be introduced at 6 months and will be useful upto 3 years with the assorted activities it offers. What I love the most about it is it's variety, it can be a great toy even without having the batteries on.
It is easy to carry and quite sturdy. 
What may not work for few-
Too much variety in one box can be distracting for the child.
Expensive- the activity cube is priced at 2700 Rs. You may get it a little cheaper during online sale, the lowest price that I saw online was 2100.

All in all a great toy!

Musical Bonding - A Playful and Innovative Music Class for Parent & Child

If you have followed my blog-series on music, you would already know what I am talking about.

Musical bonding holds a very special place for us and we have found our emotional connect to it; so, my series wouldn't be complete without a dedicated post on it.

To get a better understanding of this parent -child programme for all my readers, I spoke to Aditi Shah, founder of Musical Bonding and here is what she has to say about one of her babies- "MB"!! 
  How did you come up with a programme that is so unique to Indian market?

Musical Bonding did not happen as a planned programme for the Indian market. The music provided by The Music Class allowed us (my husband and me) to have lots of fun with our two kids, singing, dancing and learning. Musical Bonding started as a simple attempt to make some friends in a new country and for the benefit of my own kids.
  Why Music, what does music mean to you?

I have background in Indian classical music and know that it is not the kind of musi…

Review- Pantene Oil Replacement

Gone are the hostel days when I used to sit with my friends for long head massage/ oiling sessions along with lots of gossip.

I now end up running behind a toddler with my hair crazily tied up in a messy bun. Also now i don't  really like oiling my hair, may be because i don't have time for it and also because washing hair after oiling needs extra efforts.

So, I rarely use oil, thankfully I am blessed with good hair, but still one needs to take some bit of care. With approaching winter and hair getting dry I was wondering which oil to buy, and just then I came across this Oil replacement cream. What a wonderful product for people who can't stand oil or who have no time or luxury to get their hair oiled.

 The New Pantene Oil Replacement has Pro-V and goodness of oils; giving you two times stronger hair.

Why I liked this product- when I first used it, I felt my hair a little sticky, but I realised I had used a larger quantity. The stickiness though went away in sometime. T…

Our journey with Music

How we introduced music to our baby?
All through my pregnancy I listened to various mantras from Garbh-sanskar (a musical CD with prayers and shlokas from Vedas and other Hindu scriptures) I have a detailed post on it.  To my awe when I play them now A either calms down or grooves to the rhythm of those songs/mantras or tries to repeat after me (he is 17months now, but has been doing this since he was 7-8 months old)
A has been a light sleeper since the beginning and he gave us really tough time during first 3 months of sleepless days and nights at a stretch. We used different white-noises to make him sleep and for awake hours I had rhymes playing.
 Hooplaa kidz rhymes ( Click here )were our favourite for first 4 months along with his musical play gym and few rattles. As he grew a bit, we moved to supersimple rhymes, I became a clown dancing on those wonderful rhymes. Till the time he only listened to music without being too inquisitive about where it came from, I had an easy time wi…
