Thanks for being here! Here, you’ll find some of my very favorite high quality, well-made toys and activities from Lovevery. This post may include affiliate links and mention of gifted products. However, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Our Lovevery Block Set is one of the most played with things in our entire house. And we’ve had it a year! Between H (6.5), J (3.5), and R (15 m) it is one of the few toys that gets played with daily. In fact, we have loved it so much over the last year and have been so impressed with the quality, we ended up grabbing Lovevery’s Babbler Play Kit too.
The Babbler Play Kit is something I wish I would have had when H and J were younger. I was a little hesitant as it is on the more expensive side. But over the last several months of them playing with the Play Kit, along with the fact that the Block Set has been played with for over a YEAR now, I’m truly recognizing that it’s a wonderful investment.
Here’s a highlight on a few of our favorite toys we got in Lovevery’s Babbler Play Kit for months 13, 14, and 15.:
First up, the Slide and Seek Ball Run.
This piece has literally taken a beating from two particular brothers… As in, they threw it out their second-story bedroom window. Because, you know, curiosity and cause and effect and all that, ha.
But it’s so fun! I love that there are four different ways for your toddler to collect the ball after it’s spun around the ball run. They can lift, open, pull up, and push through 4 separate openings! R thinks it’s hilarious to play a “hide and seek” of sorts with the ball once it’s done. I’ll spin the ball run around, open a door so he can see it, then close the door quickly and give it a spin. You’d think I was smooshing a pie into my face because it makes him laugh SO hard.
Plus, I think it’s great that the ball doesn’t just drop in. Rather, your toddler has to intentionally push or nudge which is great for fine motor skills. And did I mention it survived a drop out of a second story window? Yeah, let’s marinate on that for a second, ha.
Lovevery Flexible Wooden Stacker
So… full transparency. This was also a victim of two older brothers, a second story window, and gravity. And then kitchen shears. Third child problems? I don’t know, but so far it hasn’t made this toy any less fun.
Before the rod was removed (in the name of science) from the round base, this may have been one of R’s very favorites. I would put him outside in his “baby jail” while Z and I worked on the yard and back deck, and he loved it!
There are 6 different colors of the stacking rings, and along with being able to stack them together on a wibbly-wobbly-wiggly rod, R also loved practicing putting the rings into the little round divots on the board too! It’s great to practice colors and learning how things fit together
His current favorite though?
Lovevery The Circles of Friends Puzzle:
He LOVES that when you lift up each circle, there’s a smiling face looking back at him. With his little pincer grasp, he’ll grab a handle, pull it up, and say “hihi” with a little squeal. And sometimes even a kiss – which is just the cutest thing ever.
It’s always shocking to see him be able to figure this out so easily. And how proud he is of himself when he puts a circle piece back into the right spot! When he knows it’s not in the right spot, he’ll lean forward and go “uh-oh!” and give a little grin. Plus, it sure doesn’t hurt that it’s very aesthetically pleasing.
Lovevery Nested Felt Baskets and Purple Felt Ball:
A surprising hit! And surprisingly versatile. “Ball, ball” is one of R’s favorite words, and for good reason – he loves throwing and catching and bouncing and all the things. These are so beautifully put together and incredible quality. R loves nesting them into one another, topped off with the ball, stacking them up and knocking them down with the ball in his hand, and just seeing all the different ways they can bend and move and what they can and cannot hold.
More goodies from the Lovevery Babbler Play Kit:
- Wooden Coin Bank and Coins: a really fun way for R to work on his fine motor skills. He will scrunch up his little face and manipulate the wooden coins until one falls through the slot. As a fun extra, once he fills the coin bank, he loves shaking it around. So it’s almost like an extra maraca/shaker toy!
- Books: “Colorful Foods”, “Where is Crew’s Shoe?”, “Big and Little” and “Messy and Clean” board books. These are so fun and not obnoxious, even on the one-thousandth time of reading them for the day, ha. Bright colors, simple and cute photography, and I love how inclusive they are.
- Organic Cotton Rainbow Ball: another one R uses and plays with daily! He loves how when it rolls, it doesn’t go in a straight ball. He’ll chase it around the room and thinks it’s so funny when he has to change directions to keep up with it! Because of the ridges, it’s very easy enough for him to grasp and throw.
One of the most helpful parts of the Lovevery Play Kits is the Play Guide! Lovevery has done and compiled all the research and gives me the cliff notes on exactly what I need to know. The Play Guide gives me ideas on how to get the most out of our “simple” play.
Overall – I was very nervous about the price. Like, I think by now we all know I’m cheap and hate paying full price on anything, ha. BUT. I am very glad we decided to go with the Play Kit and didn’t let the price deter me.
Is the Lovevery Babbler Play Kit worth it?
100% yes. I can already tell the quality will prove itself over time and will make for great hand-me-downs. Not only that, any of Lovevery’s Play Kits would make for a perfect baby shower, birthday, Christmas or any holiday gift!
Because of that, we’re excited for his next box: Lovevery’s Pioneer Play Kit!
