The World of Eric Carle ~ Review

We are huge Eric Carle fans in my house so I was really excited to have the opportunity to review some of the great products from The World of Eric Carle line.  If you know me personally you will know that we even had a Very Hungry Caterpillar theme for Chris's 2nd birthday party.  I remember the Very Hungry Caterpillar book from my childhood and as something that I always enjoyed I introduced my boys to Eric Carle by reading them his books from the time they were born.

The one thing that draws me in to his books besides great stories is the fun bright illustrations in the books.  This is carried over to the toys with many fun bright colors and designs.  I can always spot an Eric Carle toy by its signature designs.  You can check out my video review and descriptions below and be sure to check out The World of Eric Carle on facebook as well here.  Be kind as this is my 1st ever video review!!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Wood Stacker (Ages 6-24M) – The wood stacker is a must for your child. Standing 7.5 inches tall the caterpillar has four green “segments” that can be stacked onto the base and felt antennas for a softer touch. Available for $20 at Babies ‘R’ Us and Amazon.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Stroller Cards (Ages 0-3) – These 5 die-cut, shaped stroller cards featuring the beloved illustrations from Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar are easy to attach to a stroller, backpack, or diaper bag. The engaging art and touch-and-feel elements make them perfect interactive entertainment for babies on the go. Available for $9.99 at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

Developmental Plush Blue Horse (Ages 0+) – The Developmental Horse is unique created based on accepted research of how babies develop within the first two years of life. But most importantly, your little one will find this so much fun! This horse has a sound chip, a bell rattle, ribbon tags, and textured fabric to get all your babies senses going. It also includes multiple teethers, rings and a bead rattle to relieve those aching new teeth and a satin streamer and knotties for the tail to play with. Best yet you can take it anywhere with the on-the-go caterpillar clip! Available for $18 at Kohl’s and Amazon.

Both of my sons loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar Wood Stacker even with a two year age difference.  Nick especially loved the Developmental Plush Blue Horse.  I think any or even all three of these toys would make a great baby shower gift.  Hope you enjoyed my first ever video review!!
