Have a look at NOOBEES ... a beautiful, soft, visually stimulating item for babies and an early learning tool for toddlers and preschoolers.
Noobees are the creation of Sara Thurman Oates, a Durham Region mum, and have now been featured in Today's Parent magazine. Noobees make a fantastic baby gift. They are fun, cozy and reasonably priced at $19.99 and what a great thing to know that you're purchasing a product that's ethically produced in Ontario.
Sara says, "The Noobee® was originally created to be worn by parents while feeding their baby to stimulate vision and give them something soft to touch; especially when they get to the stage of poking and pulling! The Noobee® is a super-soft, multi-use educational toy that engages babies to preschool-age in literacy and numeracy skills. Taking it everywhere is a breeze with its ability to roll up and fit into a purse or pocket.
Best of all - it’s completely machine washable!"
