It allows kids to mimic and copy adults, even during the pandemic.
Children tend to mimic what they see their parents doing. At times, we may find this adorable and at other times, it may be a gentle reminder to be careful what we do around them. When they are very young, they may mimic the behavior of vacuuming the floor or perhaps even washing the dishes.
Fisher-Price has picked up on this reality and is now designing additional toys to help kids do what they see us doing during the pandemic. This includes working, exercising, and cooking at home.
One of the unique collections that they are now offering is “My Home Office.” It’s ideal for these difficult times because many parents are now working from home and trying their best to keep the kids occupied. Providing them with their own office is just what they need.
This $24.99 set is for children ages 3 and older. It is an 8 piece playset that includes a “laptop,” four fabric “apps” to attach to the computer screen, a wood smartphone, and a headset. There is also a to-go cup you can fill with water or juice.
Perhaps a cooking set is a little more up your alley. They are offering the Cutest Chef Gift Set to get your little chef started in the kitchen. Some of the things included with this set are a crinkle recipe card, play tongs with a meatball spinner, a chewy oven mitt teether, and a wearable chef’s apron bib. It’s priced at $14.99 and is appropriate for babies age 3 months and older.
If you tend to exercise at home, you can get your baby involved with the Baby Biceps Gift Set. The gym themed toys are appropriate for babies who are at least 3 months old. At $14.99, it provides everything your baby needs to get in shape and to keep them occupied, including a soft, wearable (and retro!) headband, a kettlebell rattle to lift and chew, a dumbbell to curl up and a jingling protein shake.
One other option that you may want to consider is a travel kit that can also be used for vacationing at home. It is the Tiny Tourist Gift Set, which is also priced at $14.99 and appropriate for children at least 3 months old.
The set includes a pretend camera to rattle and click, a crinkly bottle of sunscreen, a chewy passport teether, and a wearable bib.SKM: below-content placeholder
