Growing up with #BrightStarts #BabyLOLL

Bright Starts toys have always been a favourite at our house and with five kids we have put the. To the test and they always come out on top as the most durable and fun! 

We love the bright colors the music and the engagement that happens with our children and these toys. Balls pop, colors light and always with a fun merry tune playing along teaching the kids something important.
I was super excited to be part of the Bright Starts League of Little Laughers play date campaigns and knew everyone would have a great time!  I invited some little friends and the fun began.

The kids were so excited to see the Bright Starts toys ready to play with and I love that there were extra balls added to the kit! There never seems to be enough balls or they go missing do this was a big bonus.  Balls spun, music played and kids laughed, smiled and shared...yes that's right shared! Even my big boys were in on the fun and enjoyed checking out the toys!

One of the kids favorites was the Learn & Giggle Activity Station as it is very engaging. Children are able to listen to music, hear fun sounds and watch the lights! There is a flip book that tells baby stories.  They also loved the Spin and Giggle puppy! So fun to watch the balls spin and fly out!

All that fun sure to worked up an appetite! These easy-to-make recipes are toddler-friendly and great for play dates (recipes courtesy of Bright Starts). Our favourites were:
