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.

Frequently asked questions about thebirdandelephant

TEETHERS:
- Remove the fabric strip and wash with everyday laundry.
- Wood Rings should always be handwashed, never in a dishwasher or soaked in the sink. Failure to follow these guidelines will result in damage to the ring, including splits, breaks and splinters.

BIBS, BURP CLOTHS:
Wash with everyday laundry.

BLOCKS:
Spot cleaning/sanitizing by hand is recommended, but if a run through the wash is deemed necessary, please use a cold water, gentle cycle with gentle detergent free of brighteners, whiteners, and chemicals harmful to baby and the environment. Post wash cycle, toss in a low setting dryer or air dry. Knead the block into shape.

Follow these simple care instructions for both organic and non-organic items.
Bib sizes denote the distance between the actual snaps, not the length of the bib, itself.
Custom orders are welcome, however, please keep in mind that creating a custom block will take longer as the layout of fabrics, ribbons, etc., takes a lot of thought.

Initials? Names?
I'm happy to personalize, but on a limited basis. I do everything by hand, and at this time, the personalization is in the form of a hand-embroidered applique.

Custom orders and personalized orders cannot be expedited as they usually take up to 2 weeks dependent upon my current work order.
To have your order expedited (made by hand and shipped quickly) there is a RUSH FEE of $20.

Link to the RUSH FEE listing:

I may not be able to accommodate all rush orders, based on availability of materials, etc.

My packaging is simple and minimal, at this time. I like to minimize my shop waste, so I use discarded fabric strips to bundle up most orders, and everything goes into a clear waterproof bag to protect your item(s) from the elements.

I am currently in the process of creating packaging that will enhance my products and leave a minimal impact on the landfill.
I make EVERYTHING by hand, by myself. I've requested a personal fairy to answer emails and tidy the shop floor, as well as a couple of seamstresses to help with the sewing, but until those positions are full, it's just me:
answering emails
searching for and ordering fabrics
photographing new items
writing listings
packaging
cutting tags and labels....
Please know that I work around the clock, until the wee hours when even the mice have stopped playing (and yes, I am seriously lining up a team for the future).

HOWEVER, see above for Expedited orders, and always, if you need your item by a particular date, please, please let me know to make sure I can accommodate your request.
