SoftPlay is a company that specializes in high quality, educational and interactive cloth products for children age birth to five years old. At SoftPlay they believe that learning can be fun and their products prove that. SoftPlay has created an award winning line up of products that I have personally used throughout my kids life (yes even before I started doing product reviews) and I was thrilled when they emailed me to test out one of their new products.
Back in 2005, when my 3rd daughter was just under one she ended up hospitalized with an infection and spent 21 days in hospital. SoftPlay books were a huge part of keeping her happy and distracted during that time. Back then we had two of their award winning books, that were actually gifts to my first daughter. The books, What’s That Sound and Busy Baby, got a workout on a daily basis and for years after. It’s one of those toys that I won’t forget. I even have one of them stashed in the memory box that still made sounds until recently. That’s 9 years.
That’s what I call quality.
I was sent the Fisher Price Little People Lift and Look Let’s Count on the Farm to review and I just love it. It is the same high quality that I saw in the other books I have owned and it has characters that my kids are familiar with and love. The book and lift out pieces are made of a sturdy foam with foil accents and the characters that lift out are easy for little fingers to maneuver. All in all a great book to do early reading with a small infant all the way up to story time before bed with a preschooler.
Do I recommend these books? Absolutely. In fact I will be picking up a couple of them for new babies due to arrive in my extended family this fall.
