This rainbow baby block is a great gift for boys and is crafted of fabric in vibrant prints and stripes, with lots of looped ribbons and a rattle with a soft fill. The colors of this block are bold, with a light blue argyle, a solid navy, rainbow stripe, and angular color blocks against a primary red. Topped and bottomed with plush, white fleece with a diamond pattern. Baby will love the softness found here. Perfect for baby shower gift and newborn visits!


These blocks stimulate the newborn's vision by offering contrasting patterns to gaze a. The ribbons are great for babies gaining motor control, learning to grab and control movement. As baby begins to sit and move around, these blocks can become enticers to get those limbs moving. And they are great tumblers as they will roll and they don't hurt people, pets and furniture. Plus they are really cute left lying around.

SIZES:
3 inches
4 inches


My soft baby blocks are lovingly crafted. These blocks are great for sensory stimulation of newborns through those important developmental months. The rattle is always an attention getter, the ribbons are like magnets for little fingers! Mothers always tell me their little ones reach and grab these upon sight!

CARE: The fabrics are pre-shrunk. Spot cleaning is best for maintaining shape, but if you must launder, throw it in a gentle cycle wash with cold water. Fluff dry.

I try to incorporate visual as well as other sensory elements into each block I produce so these plush baby blocks can be enjoyed over time, and I like them to look pleasing to the adults, too! Babies are born with limited vision, seeing up to 10 inches, and only black and white objects (why they love faces, think of the high contrast in features). When my nephew was born, he had a heart condition and spent a lot of time in the hospital. The nurses would make bold drawings of lines and shapes onto white paper using black and red pens. These cards were placed in the bassinet to help soothe my nephew's discomfort. That has been years ago, but I never forgot that! When my son was born, I found him to be a bit uncomfortable and unable to soothe. I recalled those nurses with the drawings and I gave it a try. I would place similar drawings against his crib rails, at eye level. He would stare at those, with the newborn eyes tracing the lines. I have incorporated that same idea into these blocks, but using fabric instead of ink and paper, which is safer. The ribbons and rattle will lengthen the enertainment as baby grows and start moving around. Ribbons for grasping and a softie that can be rolled about. I hope your little one finds as much excitement and self-soothing with the materials and patterns used as my nephew and my own son did with the drawings! Plus, these make beautiful nursery decor.
