We are all about introducing our Bubbas to nature and Fisher-Price® has done it with the Rainforest Friends. Through the Rainforest Friends, babies will experience a rainforest adventure with carefully designed pieces for them to play with. These toys are designed to give our little ones a rainforest immersive experience, giving them an opportunity to nurture the love for animals and nature at an early age.
Early exposure to vibrant images of fauna and flora built within the Rainforest Friends range stimulates our babies’ development of motor skills and cognitive ability. Warm and vibrant colors work to stimulate minds, while bright green colors (similar to nature) is used to promote a calm environment to simultaneously improves babies’ concentration, hence minimizing anxiety.
“According to Dr. Anna Franklin from the Surrey Baby Lab in the United Kingdom, babies have a preference for bright colours. With that, we were selective with the choice of colours that we used to overlay our new range, to ensure a pleasant and calming experience yet stimulating environment for our babies, to improve learning abilities,” adds Ms. Kho.
The Rainforest Friends range consists of 5 different toys, each with different unique quality that can benefit a child’s development and learning ability at different stages of their growth.
