Who would love this: Young kids that love rainbow & sensory/ playdough activities
I love toys that can be used in multiple creative ways. Jellystone Designs has a range of originally-designed silicone range that fits this criteria perfectly. I’m grateful for the chance to review this “Balloon Colour Sorter - Rainbow Bright” - another sensory play item with lots of fun and BIG potential!
Why I love ❤️ this toy:
(1) Vibrantly Colourful Balloons Puzzle - This toy has the loveliest graphic design that touches the nostalgic sentiment of the parents and captures the hearts of the kids. On the wooden base, there is an adorable baby elephant (that reminds me of Dumbo from Disney but minus the enormous ears) with soft shade of grey and a little hint of sweet pink on its ears, cheeks and toes. Held and entangled tightly around the trunk is a bunch of 7 balloons in vibrant rainbow colour hue - red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. (If you prefer something of a gentler shade, Jellystone Designs also has a “Rainbow Pastel” version with “sweet baby colours”). Each of the balloon has a removable silicone piece (with corresponding colours as the balloons illustrations). I love the chunky, ergonomically-designed gripper on these silicone tops - it’s fun for kids to train up their pincer grasp skill whilst doing colour-matching activity. Super cute!
(2) Textural Design - The silicone pieces have textural footprints on the base - some looks like prints left behind by kittens, some are probably traces of little goslings. The footprints come in pairs; either in 4, 6 or 8 marks. They can be used in any sensory, messy or playdough activities! We used it with the gorgeously scented Play Sense dough from the The Kid Cave - the stamps made such a lovely collection of “footprints” cookies that we can’t wait to “bake” in our pretend oven.
(3) Wooden Base - I love the wooden, sturdy puzzle base made of FSC responsibly sourced basswood. There is also a cotton tote bag included for easy storage!
(4) FDA Approved Silicone - The product is made of child-friendly, FDA approved silicone. They are safe and toxic-free material. The silicone tops are chewable, and can be cleaned using a steriliser, placed in a dishwasher or washed with warm soapy water.
