Finding the perfect, safe toys that not only provide an educational play experience but also foster infants’ imaginations may be more difficult than it seems. Here are some of the best new inventions for babies that stimulate the senses, foster balance and coordination, and encourage social interaction.

The newly released Lamaze Stretch Giraffe is an educational and engaging baby toy that allows infants to discover their senses by exploring various sounds, textures, and colors.

Exploratory touches are rewarded with various fun sounds that enhance interactive play. The toy giraffe comes complete with different textured materials, including ribbons, soft velvet, and plastic teething rings for baby’s teething needs.

The Cruise & Groove Ballapalooza is one of Fisher-Price’s new inventions for babies and toddlers. Perfect for tiny hands, this play set features bright, captivating colors, complex winding ramps, and an assortment of colorful balls for sorting, rolling, or dropping.

Older infants are able to crawl through the attached gate and arch or to insert the balls while standing up. The Cruise & Groove Ballapalooza is great for babies of any age and features modifiable play options for infants who sit, cruise, crawl, walk, or stand that introduce young children to problem solving, object permanency, and sorting skills.

Vtech’s latest invention is the Alphabet Activity Cube that takes babies’ learning experiences to the next level. Five sides of engaging, child-friendly activities encourage babies to stack and insert alphabet blocks, explore musical features, learn about numbers and shapes, and manipulate sliders, gears, and pegs. Infants are able to experiment with mechanical elements or interact with the electronic piano keys and keypad for fun, surprising sounds and lights. The cube is perfect for infants who have begun sitting up or crawling and are able to access all sides freely by themselves. Bright colors, flashing lights, and baby friendly pictures help infants learn about letters, numbers, shape recognition, problem solving, sorting, object permanency, and object manipulation.

Dubbed one of the best toys of the year, the Baby Genius Sing-Along School Bus is a great interactive and educational toy for babies older than 12 months.

A more traditional, less interactive choice for babies is the Skip Hop Alphabet Zoo comprised of wooden ABC house blocks that provide endless possibilities for creative play. Designed for babies over 12 months of age, this wooden block set fosters fine motor skills, problem solving, building and sorting skills, letter awareness, and creativity. Young children are able to manipulate the blocks by stacking to create houses, towers, large buildings, or entire cities. Intriguing colors, shapes, pictures, and patterns will spark young children’s imagination, help them learn about animals and the alphabet, and encourage them to arrange the wooden blocks in new ways each time.

How to Invent a Baby Product

December 26, 2012

If you are wondering how to invent a new baby product, but worry that it will take too much time, be too difficult, or cost too much money there are ways to prevent these situations. At the same time, new product development is something that is uncertain. It is quite a risk, much like everything in business. No company or invention can guarantee success. So when you are thinking about how to invent a new product, there are plenty of factors to consider.

For one, companies continue to be more innovative. Therefore, there are people coming up with new invention ideas every day and they are making prototypes as you think about how to invent your idea. That is why it is important to do research and make sure your invention idea is not already on the market. Even if there is a product like the one you came up with, there is always a demand for new or improved products from corporations or individuals with new product ideas.  These products should either solve a problem or improve something and be able to fit in with a certain company’s product line.

For example, if you are thinking about inventing a new baby product, consider some of the newest products to hit store shelves.  One of these products to recently come out is Sock-Ons. Many parents are mystified when their babies are able to remove their socks so easily. In many cases, the socks are gone and never to be seen again. Sock-Ons can prevent this from ever happening again. They are small straps that fit over the baby’s sock, one half around the ankle and the other around the foot. With the Sock-Ons in place, it is impossible for your baby to take off their socks unless you want them to. They are cheap, effective and come in different colors so they match your baby’s outfit. So you basically get a two-in-one product because it is stylish and convenient.

Another new invention for babies is the Buggy-Board, a large attachment for your stroller that is similar to a skateboard. It allows your toddler to hop on to the stroller and hitch a ride while you are pushing the stroller. There are many different varieties of Buggy-Board. Some have a seat attached, although the standard Buggy-Boards are big enough for a toddler to sit on. Most styles can be adjusted so they properly fit your stroller. It would be wise to contact the manufacturer of your stroller and make sure it is compatible with a Buggy-Board before you buy one.

The nursing pillow invention is helping to revolutionize the task of breastfeeding. Studies say that less than 35% of women breastfeed their babies for longer than six months. This is mainly due to the fact that the women find it uncomfortable. Many women suffer from loss of blood circulation when they are holding their baby in the same position for an extended period of time. The nursing pillow fits comfortably and snugly around your waist. It will not move around the way a normal pillow does. This allows the baby to be positioned easily. Both the mother and baby will be very comfortable during the entire process. Also, as the baby grows and wants to be in an upright position, you can use a nursing pillow as a support until the child can sit up without any help.
The main benefit of sleeping bags specially designed for babies is temperature control. Many babies tend to move around a lot when they sleep. They push the covers away and end up spending most of the night uncovered. This could result in them catching a cold. There is also the possibility of the baby getting too far under the covers and overheating. Mothers need not be worried about these things any longer. The sleeping bag fits snugly around the baby’s shoulders. This ensures that the baby will stay warm throughout the night. They also work well when you travel with your baby. After a few nights, the baby becomes used to the feeling of the sleeping bag. When you are putting the baby in a different cradle or room, the baby will feel safe in the familiar environment of the sleeping bag.

When figuring out how to invent your baby product, you may face some obstacles along the way. This can cause you to lose time, energy and money in trying to get off the ground with a product, especially if you do not know how to invent on your own.  If you face any obstacles or are having a hard time inventing a product alone, keep in mind that there are inventing companies that can help.  One of the biggest obstacles most inventors must overcome when pursuing an idea is being willing to trust someone with their idea.  Make sure to do your research and choose an inventing company that has experience with developing products and getting them on store shelves.  Also make sure that the company will sign a Confidentiality Agreement to ensure that your idea is safe.
