Softplay baby and childrens books- Review and Giveaway!

We love reading at our house and it seems I can never get enough books for {B}. I think we go through all of his books at least once daily! I highly encourage starting babies reading at an early age, but I have found at times that I wish books were lighter, smaller, and easier for babies to handle. Thats why I contacted SoftPlay! SoftPlay makes books especially for tiny hands. SoftPlay makes soft cloth books that help develop essential motor skills and early language development for baby. The bright colors, familiar shapes, and animal pictures hold baby's attention and encourage learning new words and phrases. Each book has a plastic take-along ring as an added bonus for easy attachment to carseats, strollers, shopping carts, or wherever baby might want to read while they are on the go!







I was sent 3 book sets to review (12 books!)






-Baby's First Cloth Books




When I first opened the boxes of the books I was sent to review, I was really surprised at how soft they were! No need to worry about baby dropping the books on baby's face during a diaper change, or getting a papercut, or even a scratch! These are so soft, adorable, and are surface washable. I also love how the words encourage baby to learn new words, colors, and animals. {B} can't get enough of them and is continually bringing them over to me to read to him! I love the fact that they have the ring on them as well, so nice to be able to clip them to his stroller, and he can't throw them out like he likes to do with everything! If you don't have any of these books, you are definitely missing out. They are perfect for the beginning reader and also could make a GREAT baby shower gift!


























Buy Them: These book sets that I reviewed are currently available for a very limited time only at Costco and Sam's Club.




WIN THEM! SoftPlay has generously offered one lucky reader of n.c. baby blog ALL 3 sets of books that I was able to review ( 12 Books total!)

  5. I would love to own the Dinosaur felt pkayset. However, my two yr old almost exclusively learned her alphabet recognition using the abc book with door hanger that I, oddly, no longer see offerred. What a shame!
