Win A Stepping Sone Play Mat

Stepping Stone Play Mat

I have such fun with infant toys. I love the thought that goes into creating toys that are safe, fun and perfect for building our baby’s developmental skills.

The new Stepping Stone Play Mat by One Step Ahead, does not disappoint. It comes with 6 large, soft triangles, each with its own captivating activity. The triangles can be placed together in a number of ways, making it perfect for tummy time, crawling time and those times when your baby wants to sit and play.

I love all of the fun that was placed onto each triangle. My favorite is the octopus. His long tentacles can be grasped and shaken to create a delicate chiming sound. The hole in the triangle that he is attached to, also turns it into a shape sorter.

My 7 month old loves the house with the crinkly door and hidden mirror. He spends most of his time with the little door grasped between his dimply hands.

Even my 5 year old enjoys playing with them, arranging them in a zig-zag pattern so that she can play hop scotch.
