*Our Holiday Gift Guide* Tiny Love Follow-Me Fred and Stack and Play Musical Elephant

*This Is A Guest Post From Janessa At Thrifty Nifty Mommy, Read Her Review & Enter To Win*



It's no secret that my love for Tiny Love products is not........well....... tiny! :) I know, you're probably rolling your eyes, but I couldn't help myself.  Seriously though, I've had the chance to try a number of Tiny Love products now and I have loved every one!

Recently Tiny Love sent me two of their new toys: The Tiny Love Follow-Me Fred and Tiny Love Stack and Play Musical Elephant!



Details on Follow-Me Fred:

Charming self-rolling puppy that features a multi-directional, accordion-shaped body which can be set to move in a straight line or in a circular motion. Colorful buttons trigger music and cheerful doggy sounds.



  • Baby-activated electronic dog encourages baby to crawl by barking and playing a friendly tune.
  • Flexible middle allows Fred to turn in circles.
  • Promotes fine motor skills, cognitive and emotional abilities.
  • Adjustable speed control.
  • Available in pink as "Follow-Me Fiona"
  • Recommended for ages 6M-18M

What We Thought:

We have a real dog and Jacob is already an animal lover! Jacob just turned 6 months about 2 weeks ago, but he's been playing with his Follow-Me Fred for over a month now. He's also been crawling for quite a few weeks and he loves being able to crawl along with Fred (and chew on him occasionally.)  I like that Fred starts walking with just a simple tap from Jacob and I like that you can adjust the direction Fred goes using the flexible middle.  You can also adjust the volume (or mute it completely!) and change how fast Fred walks! This is a great toy from Tiny Love and the features were well-thought out! Oh, lastly, it comes with a set of batteries already--that's always a plus in my book, especially at Christmas time so you don't spend half of your morning installing batteries! We love everything about Fred!



Details on the Stack and Play Musical Elephant:

Enchanting dual-stage elephant-shaped stacking toy with a colorful design

  • 2 game levels: wide opening or narrow opening.
  • Engaging electronic lights & music feedback.
  • Easy-to-grasp rings that can be hooked together.
  • Recommended for ages 6M-18M
What We Thought:



This elephant is just so cute! I love the bright colors! I also love that they alternated the rings with plastic and fabric. Jacob has really enjoyed playing with the balls in this elephant. He will shake them and watch them roll on the floor. He's also enjoyed chewing on the soft fabric rings. He is still too young to be able to drop the balls down into the top of the elephant on his own, but he loves to watch his sister do it! The only thing I wish that was different about this elephant is the door where the balls come out. It pops loose easily so the balls can come through, but it's almost a little TOO easy, so it is hard to store the balls in there without them falling out. Jacob has really enjoyed seeing the balls put into the top and then seeing them fall out the bottom though!

In Conclusion:



Not only does Jacob love his new Tiny Love toys, his older sister Maggie (almost 3 years old) has enjoyed playing with the toys with him--that's always a plus! She shows him how to use the Stack and Play Musical Elephant and encourages him to chase after Fred. 

You can purchase both of these toys (and lots of other great products!) directly from Tiny Love and also at ToysRUs.com!
