The Cutest & Coolest New Stroller Blanket

Bottom line: Oribel’s Peripops are absolutely adorable. You can choose from four animal designs – Foxey, Beary, Tiggy and Pandy – each one is solid colored on one side, and when flipped has a brightly colored pattern to show off. They’re great as an accent in the nursery or playroom and offer a sweet little spot for your baby to practice his tummy time.

What makes it special? As you can see, this isn’t your average square or rectangular shaped blanket. The animal shape not only give it a cute overload draw, but the head of the animal can fold over your stroller’s child bar to keep it in place on cool days. Even cooler? You can stuff these genius little blankets with your baby’s outgrown clothes, no longer used swaddling blankets or old, stained burp clothes. Now, filled with your unwanted stuff, it becomes a soft cushion your kiddo will enjoy well into his toddler years.

Peripops are available on amazon.com, $69.

A Better Activity Center

Once your baby is about 5 months or so, an activity center can give you a few key moments of independent play. Orible’s version the PortaPlay Convertible Activity Center gets our seal of approval for a few reasons.

Bottom line: First, it’s more pleasant to look at than some of your other options – and let it be known that this will take up residence in your living room for awhile. Your little guy can work on strengthening his leg muscles as he bounces in the seat and he’ll develop fine motor skills, grasping skills and hand eye coordination as he explores all of the moving, rattling and chewable parts.

How it grows with your child: We love baby gear that has a long life and multiple uses. This activity center won’t get tossed into your storage area after your baby’s first birthday. Remove the toys and seat, fill the hole with a wooden top and you have a perfect play table for all those toddler activities that lie ahead – think Playdough, coloring and tea parties.

PortaPlay Convertible Activity Center is available on amazon.com, $149.
