How it works
Many new parents know how hard it is to try to keep a growing baby satisfied and calm, especially when they are starting to be aware of their surrounding which basically means from the age of 3-4 months and on. During these wonderful, but often exhausting months for parents, the babies are in a process of active learning and moving. This not only means that they need a lot of focused attention but also they need physical contact with the objects they see around and in that way they develop their ability to observe, notice, touch and feel. The market is nowadays abundant with varieties of toys and baby equipment, ranging from the ones designed to provide the best learning experience, to the ones that will keep babies busy and thus provide a bit of free time for parents. In this array of options to choose from, it is extremely important for parents to keep babies busy and active, but at the same time parents to experience some brief moments of time on their own.
