This is my fourth time to have an eight month old baby to entertain. If there’s anything I’ve learned from my four kiddos, it’s that eight month old babies have very short attention spans.
It never fails. As soon as I put one toy in front of him to play with, he’s ready for the next!
Recently, we went on vacation. We were in the car, with said eight month old, for six hours – one way. He did better than we expected, but the only toy that kept him quiet during the drive was his Aurora Crinkle Friend, Mr. Crabs – specifically, the knot at the end of one of his legs!
I love Aurora Crinkle Friends, because they’re full of bright colors, textures, and sounds! Jett can play with one of these amazingly soft plush toys without getting bored, because each section features a different texture or sound.
His favorite parts of Mr. Crabs are the knots at the end of his legs, and his favorite parts of Al, the alligator are the ribbons on his tail and back since they’re more like “tags”. (Yes, he’s a tag baby. If anything has a size or washing instruction tag hanging on it, he goes for that first.)
Designs use bright, vivid colors and patterns that invite baby to focus, stimulating vision. The textures invite baby to explore, stimulating tactile senses. While Crinkle, squeak and rattle awaken baby auditory awareness and is designed to keep children busy for hours; suitable for ages six months and up.
Aurora Crinkle Friends come in lots of fun colors and styles! With so many to choose from, Aurora offers Crinkle Friends in farm animals, water animals, zoo animals, a bird, or even critters. Check out the recently added “Brights” Hedgehog, Toucan, Alligator and Crab (the last two pictured above!) which all have a suggested retail price of $17. They’re so adorable.
