Still looking for a “big” gift for your baby? Named one of American Baby’s Best Toys of 2013, the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Crawl Around Car takes stationary playtime to a whole new level.
With more than 75 songs and phrases and three modes of play, Baby can have a serious blast while developing gross and fine motor skills. Plus, he can explore the look of shapes while placing blocks through the car’s color-sorting door. From letters to numbers as well as words, Baby is guaranteed to practice concepts across a variety of skill levels. And if your kid just wants to sit inside and pretend he’s in his own real vehicle, the interactive dashboard and Baby GPS are fun, too. Our only road-tested word of warning: You put this together and add all the stickers yourself, so you might want to work on that before Christmas Eve!
Get your little one learning and moving by entering our latest giveaway for ONE lucky winner to receive the Laugh and Learn Crawl Around Car, worth about $50. To enter, leave a comment below, up to one a day between today and December 18, and don’t forget to read the official rules. Be sure to check back on December 19 and scroll to the bottom of the post to see who won. We reach out to winners via Facebook message (it goes into your “other” message folder on Facebook), so if you win, look for us there as well. Goody luck!
Congrats to Amanda Alexander Wright!

Each year we ask you what baby gear you love best. This year some 58,000 of you voted, and your favorite products have received the coveted American Baby Bests Award. There are 18 products on this year’s list, from the small (Sophie the Giraffe is your favorite little lifesaver) to the large (Graco’s travel system covers both your stroller and car-seat needs).
Fisher-Price often has a couple of winners, and this year was no exception. Both their bouncer seat (see it on the Today Show along with other winners!) and their Jumperoo won. You need safe, entertaining places to sit your baby for a minute; these two products are the key to making a meal, taking a shower, and getting dressed in the first six months.
I used to call our Jumperoo “the office” as in, “He’s going into the office now,” because our son looked so busy while he was in there! Did it take up a fair amount of our living room? Yes. Did we care? No, because I am not sure how we would have, for instance, gotten our older child dressed without it. And he loved being in there!
In fact, that’s the difference I see in our reader comments between the bouncer and the Jumperoo. The bouncer is for an infant, and so it’s all about how much it saves the mom’s day. But the Jumperoo is more about the baby; most readers write about the smiles they see when their baby is in the playspot.
If you’re in the market for a Jumperoo, Fisher-Price has paired with Babies R Us to offer 20 percent off the Go Wild Jumperoo from today until Thursday, October 24th, in honor of our American Baby Bests Awards. It’s $104 instead of $130 for the next few weeks; take that $26 savings while you can! Have a Goody weekend…

Building vocabulary, fine-tuning motor skills, and darting everywhere: that’s what’s on Baby’s agenda for the next 12 months. Help her grow with these playful first birthday gifts, currently available at deep discounts at Shop Parents.
• Let your babe create her own tunes with the Baby DJ music mixer. It has a scratch pad and joystick that lets her trigger loads of zany effects.
• Keep him looking and feeling good in a long-sleeve cotton polo shirt.
• Encourage creative thinking with Fisher-Price’s Trio My 1st Blocks. Its big bricks are designed for little hands.
• Thrill your little walker—while teaching her about cause-and-effect—with the Dino Push Pal and Soother-and-Pull-Toy set.

All of us grown-ups are likely to be in our kitchens over the next few days…chances are, our kids will be underfoot. Especially toddlers, who love to imitate. Well, guess what I have here in our prop closet? A brand-new Fisher-Price Servin’ Surprises Kitchen & Table! Set this little beauty up near your kitchen and your kid can go nuts being his or her own chef, leaving you better able to actually get your cooking done.
Of course I can’t get it to a winner by tomorrow, but leave a comment here and you’ll be entered to win it in time for December holidays. You can comment up to once a day, between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, November 28th. Don’t get freaked out if your comment doesn’t show right away; our server can be slow. You can read the complete rules here. Goody luck!
My daughter (here at Thanksgiving with her Aunt a few years back) resists dressing up for the holidays, leaving me wishing for the times when I could dress her up like a little doll. Check back next Thursday when I’ll be giving away some cute new baby holiday outfits from Disney, The Children’s Place, and Tiny Tillia for Avon! Think stuff for 6-month-old boys and girls! Have a Happy Thanksgiving.

With all the talk of Black Friday starting ridiculously early (sigh), I feel like I may as well start handing out some holiday gifts before Thanksgiving! We get some pretty sweet surprises in the mail over here at Parents and American Baby magazine, and there’s no reason you all shouldn’t get a crack at some of it.
For instance, we’ve been jamming over here with Master Moves Mickey. He’s hanging out in our office, but should be singing in your home! The toy is for ages 2 and up and sings, flips himself over on one hand, and otherwise rocks out.
Master Moves Mickey has a retail price of $50. But leave a comment here, up to once a day, and you’ll be eligible to win him when we do our random drawing the day before Thanksgiving. Maybe tell me one of the toys you’ll be looking to buy this holiday season! (My kids want something that doesn’t exist: A Lego school. So that’s probably going to translate into a big box of Lego bricks and a “good luck!” note!)
Sometimes folks leave a comment here and it doesn’t show up right away, but it usually registers with our server within a few hours. Don’t panic! And we promise more holiday gift-giveaways in the next few weeks. For the full rules, read here. Goody Luck!
