Swirly Orb

There is a toy website named Ebeanstalk, and this fabulous company is dedicated to selecting good, safe learning toys and baby gifts. And it just so happens that Pink Haired Momma has the privilege of testing out toys that Ebeanstalk offers to the world. This week Ebeanstalk sent Pink Haired Momma and Baby DIVA a fabulous new toy to play with, so we can provide insight from a Pink Haired Momma and Baby DIVA point of view on our thoughts of this toy. The toy we received is called the Swirly Orb from International Playthings Earlyears, who makes great baby toys.

Introductions were made between Baby DIVA and the Swirly orb. She seemed quite receptive to this lovely new toy. It was great for holding and has some really exciting colors and features that sparked a great interest from Baby DIVA. So we decided to put it to the true toy test and take it with us on market day. I mean seriously you know you have a GREAT toy when it can satisfy Baby DIVA's attention through car rides, grocery shopping, farmers market wanderings and lunching with the old hags (Grandma and Pink Haired Momma).

We loaded up first thing in the morning, Swirly Orb took its place in the car seat with Baby DIVA and off we headed down the Houston Freeways to meet up with Grandma and do some market day shopping. I could hear happy giggles from Baby DIVA as she flipped Swirly Orb over and over and watched as the colorful beads "swirled" down the arms of the orb. Her giggles told me it was a match made. Later on in the morning, those giggles from baby DIVA returned as she swatted at the "honker" on top of the swirly orb. It seems this baby DIVA found it quite pleasing to "honk" swirly orb from the shopping cart seat in order to alert other shoppers that Pink Haired Momma was driving down the aisle. Self protection maybe? Who knows but Swirly orb provided her fabulous entertainment throughout our strolls through the stores.

During lunch Baby DIVA was incredibly happy and entertained by Swirly Orb yet again. After dining on Fresh cantaloupe and a yummy combination of spinach and potatoes, Baby DIVA was so entertained with Swirly orb in the highchair, that Pink Haired Momma got to eat her entire lunch without having a baby break!!


This is Pink Haired Momma's new best friend! Anything that keeps baby DIVA's attention long enough for me to stuff my face is the greatest toy ever!!

Here are some specs on this wonderful entertaining Swirly Orb. It is made by International playthings Earlyears. It is geared for babes 6 months and older. The fabulous colors and textures invite exploration of the mind for baby as well interactive manipulation of the senses. A totally fabulous engaging toy product that enhances the mind of the babe. The size of Swirly Orb is great. Large enough for lots of exploration and yet small enough to take in the diaper bag when out running errands!

Pink Haired Momma and Baby DIVA are in agreement that Swirly Orb is great and is here to stay!
