7 Toys for Baby's First Year Baby

Add a comment Published in Baby on 19 September 2014, 16:50 by Janet

There's so many toys that are available for little babies. How do we pick toys that promote baby's overall development and that will be relevant for at least 3 months of baby's life?

Here comes our list…

1 Baby gym

You can use a baby gym from day 1, ideally you want a baby gym that has loops from which to hang plastic links and toys, because newborns can only see high contrast objects that are about a foot away, the baby gym should be bright, colorful and high contrast.

Mighty Ape has just gotten colder because we have just received some brand new Frozen toys and costumes!

Children would love to dress up as their favourite princess and recreate all scenes from the movie or creative some of their own. With our new Frozen costumes. So who is your child's favourite character Elsa or Anna?

We have also just received heaps of brand new Frozen Dolls and Playsets. The Ice Palace Castle lights up, so children can recreate their favourite song Let It Gooo!

By now you must know that Frozen toys sell out fast. So make sure you get your hands on these toys before the ice has melted! :)

Gorilla Gaming Rigs: The Gorilla in the Mist Computers

We've talked about a number of our Mighty Gorilla Gaming Rigs here recently, showing off our latest builds of The Baboon and The Silverback, but one we always have trouble showing off is the Gorilla in the Mist. He's an elusive rig, that one.

Of course, the problem resides in the fact that technically it doesn't exist. Well… not until you say it does.

You see, the Gorilla in the Mist is our Gorilla Rig that you guys build for us. It could be a simple tweak to one of our pre-existing rigs, or a complete “From the Ground Up” custom assembly. It's really your call.

We certainly have our favourites amongst these builds, indeed those spec'd out for pure raw power are impressive to benchmark but we tend to lean towards those more like this one. With a perfect balance of unstoppable power and truly stunning component decisions…
