I have been waiting for an opportunity to give this cute little wooden sun baby toy, and am excited to share this sunny day gift with you! This gift is made up of things baby can use on a warm sunny day - a sunny toy, baby sunglasses, a cute outfit, and sunscreen. You could also include a sunhat, or replace the sunglasses with the hat. And because baby needs to start growing a book collection, I included a cute springtime book, baby animals, by Xavier Deneux. There are several books made in this clean graphic style, like farm, homes, vehicles, and colors. In each, the pages have raised shapes that baby can feel. In baby animals each spread includes the name for a baby animal as well as other words associated with it to provide words or talking points when reading to a child. Check out the photos for examples. I ordered the Haba Clutching Toy Sunni and the Baby Animal Board Book from Amazon. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the rattle has a jingle bell embedded into the back of it to provide additional sensory play for baby. I picked up the Babyganics Sunscreen from Target. We have been using Babyganics Sunscreen on both my boys and have been happy with it. It is tear-free, non-allergenic and free of PABA, phthalates, parabens, fragrances and nano-particles. I purchased the sunglasses and the outfit from Carters because I knew they would have the sunglasses in their store, but now that I am thinking about it, I could have found a cute outfit at Target, too and condensed my shopping trips into one! This gift provides a balance of something fun and practical and is customizable based on your budget. I hope you are inspired to provide a sunny day gift for a baby or toddler you know, too!
