roman has really been enjoying these new baby's first book blocks by dan stiles (pow!). he's intrigued by all the different patterns, colors and shapes. and they're very sturdy so they are no match for the leaky faucet that is currently his teething mouth. he flips them back and forth between his hands and i can see him practicing different grips while he plays with them.
not only are they great developmental toys, but they look great too! i think if we had these when he was a bit younger they would have been even more useful in terms of stimulating visual development.
these are a great early toy for any baby, and they're totally affordable - definitely one to add to your shower gift list! you can purchase baby's first book blocks h e r e.
