I was recently introduced to Baby Aspen gifts, and I can’t think of a better way to welcome an infant into the world than with something from their line up of products. Their products are inspired by their tag line Give. Play. Cuddle. Dream.™
Little Expeditions Ekko the Elephant and Jakka the Giraffe are products from Baby Aspen’s safari line. Oh how I wish that these had been available last year when my nephew was born. My sister has loved elephants since she was in junior high, and has had collectables of them ever since. Ekko the Elephant would have made a perfect gift for the little guy when he arrived in the world.
Ekko and Jakka are made with top-quality fabrics and attention to detail. These lovies will not only provide security for babies, but as they grow will catch their attention with their senses as well.
Shake them a little bit and baby will be rewarded with a jingly rattle sound. The blanket portion of the lovie has two sides. An incredibly soft plush on the outside, hemmed by a silky fabric, which also is on the inside. It’s perfect for the tactile difference that infants like to feel. There is also the extra attraction of the crinkle leaf that both Ekko and Jakka hold in their upper limbs. I’m not quite sure what it is about the sound and/or feel, but babies love that crinkle! And the detailing on the blanket edge is beautiful.
The 10″ x 10″ blankie size is perfect for taking everywhere (extended out from top to bottom Ekko and Jakka are 15″ total). There is no worrying that the lovie will get stuck in the stroller wheels or dragged through a puddle. Although should that happen these adorable jungle animals are polyester and can be surface washed.
These baby gifts won’t break your budget either. Everyone is tightening their belts these days, but you can give a gift that looks like you spent a lot more. Jakka the Giraffe and Ekko the Elephant are just $19.99. It’s actually a great gift to buy to keep on hand for that baby shower you forgot or to mail to a relative. Since both animals are generic, it works for a boy or a girl too.
Just about every new mom would love to receive this adorable gift for her little one.
