The newborn baby days are over, and while I’m sad they’re over, I’m also excited because suddenly Georgie is far more alert, more interactive and definitely needs to be entertained.
There is no more, eat and sleep… it’s now eat, play and sleep and the play part is what had me googling: What to do with a 3-4 month old.
Besides signing up for a Mommy & Me class each Wednesday morning, I was introduced to Poppet Post.
How does it work?
In a simple 3 step process you tell Poppet Post your child’s age and gender. They use this information to put together an exciting and engaging subscription box, filled with a combination of toys, books and craft activities tailored to your child’s developmental needs – the perfect at home stimulation toolkit for mom, nanny or granny.
Every second month there’s a different theme for you and your child to work with from cars, to bugs to bath time – each theme is packed with ideas and activities for you and your poppet to play with and talk around. Each box also contains information on how to use the products and what you can expect to experience as your little one grows older, as well as activity ideas using household items, useful tips and tried and tasted recipes.
Poppet Post’s Ages:
Items included are chosen according to the specific developmental needs of children from ages 0 – 5.
0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, 3-5 years.
How much is it?
They work on a subscription model and deliver to your door bi-monthly for R349.
Poppet Post is a great gift! They offer a once-off gift box for R200 as well as travel and holiday boxes for R249. They also have a beautiful baby shower box for R299, which is the perfect baby shower gift.
I got the 0-3 month box last month and it was such fun introducing Georgie to the boxes goodies. It was all about touch and feel
What’s in the box?
I was sent the 0-3 month old box and it’s all about touching, feeling and learning.
Sensory experiences are vital to stimulate children’s senses as well as brain development. The Texture Box provides an opportunity to help develop your little ones “Touch Sense” and encourage them to use touch and feel as a means of learning.
- A cloth numbers book is soft, safe and ideal for babies fingers. The bright colours enhance their sight sense.
- A soft textured teddy (Melissa & Doug Baby Roscoe) is great to make baby feel comfortable and safe.
- Sassy Ring O’links – each ring has a different texture and encourages tactile exploration. The bright colours and black and white link develops their sight sense. Shaking the rings enables their hearing sense.
- A soft block thats light enough for baby to pick up and soft and squishy for their little hands to explore as part of their touch sense and sight sense.
I don’t know when last you bought toys, but they’ve become so expensive, so the Poppet Box, in my opinion, is developmental, practical and a good price.
Here is Georgie on his play mat where I put the toys around him and we play with each toy, or I wait to see which one he grabs.
I didn’t realize it still had the tag on when I poured the box out onto the floor. I pulled the tag off straight after this pic!
