Babies sure are cute aren’t they? It’s been a while since my two boys were babies (le sigh), but thankfully I have a five sisters in law who have had eight babies between them within the past five years, so I get my baby fix pretty regularly! My newest niece is only four weeks old and I can’t wait to meet her next week when she comes up with her mom, dad, older sister and older brother from Connecticut. The same weekend, my 7 month old nephew is coming up from his home in NYC (with his mom and dad) to stay with us for the weekend. It’s going to be so much fun to have a baby in the house again – even if it is only for a few days.
The thing about babies is they change so much during the first few years. It almost seems like sometimes it literally happens overnight. Do you ever wonder which toys are best for your baby’s development? Please and Carrots is the solution.
Please and Carrots is a quarterly subscription box that contains learning toys, books and activities tailored to each age and stage of development. This service is a bit different because it’s quarterly instead of monthly. So instead of receiving a box once a month, you will receive a new box once every three months.
They focus on ages ranging from newborn to 3 years old, which is the most critical time of brain development! Their toys and books are chosen by a child psychologist to develop the right skills at the right time for baby. How awesome is it that they do the research and work for you. All you have to do is watch the mailbox every three months for a new box to arrive.
Each Please and Carrots Boxes Include:
- 5 premium toys, books and games to promote development at the appropriate age.
- Tips on sleep, nutrition, speech development and more from child development experts – including pediatricians, teachers and a nutritionist.
A customized program that advances as your child learns new skills such as developing motor, cognitive, social and language skills.
I recently had the opportunity to test out the service for ages 3-6 months and I loved the toys that were sent. I was impressed by not only the quality of the toys that were sent, but the variety of toys we received. The box included six brand name, no battery toys from trusted companies such as Lamaze and Melissa & Doug. There were activity ideas included that you can do with your little ones to help enhance their sensory and fine motor skills.
Please and Carrots also offers their members an exclusive online forum with information and advice from experts as well as other parents. It’s a great resource for parents!
