Congratulations to MOLUK Oibo and Nigi, Nagi & Nogi win Spiel Gut Award!!

A game is one of the tools that can be used as a way to transform knowledge to children. therefore, when a child is playing, this means that it is not only playing game that can entertain or carry out meaningful joyful activities, but more than that, a game that is played by anyone will have an educational meaning, even if the person who is doing it is not aware of it.

We are excited to announce that one of our carried brand, MOLUK has won Spiel Gut. Oibo, as well as the Nigi, Nagi & Nogi teething rings, have been awarded the 'spiel gut' seal of approval.

Play + toys as educational aids?

Playing always entails learning, not by means of teaching, but on the basis of personal experience - the most effective form of learning in childhood.

Physical and mental agility, social behaviour, imagination, logical thinking, planned action, powers of concentration, stamina, joy at being active and a great deal more besides, can be developed by playing, and the benefits can be seen for the rest of the child's life - at work and during leisure activities, as well as in a wide variety of other situations.

Learning to play?

But playing too has to be learned. The readiness to play, which every healthy child has by its very nature, can only develop into the ability to play with careful assistance, stimulation and encouragement. Good toys can also help in this, but only if the abilities and interests of the child are taken into consideration when choosing a toy.

What makes Oibo so special?

Oibo is an elastic, stackable, rollable, squeezable, easy-to-grip sensory toy for babies and kids of all ages. Oibo’s geometry merges a sphere with a cube - combining the action and fun of a ball with the educational benefits of building blocks.

Like all MOLUK toys, Oibo grows with the child. It shines as an elegant grasping and teething toy for the baby. Toddlers will enjoy how Oibo bounces and rolls. Its soft material is perfect for first throwing and catching games. By stacking and aligning the pieces, kids learn about geometry while training hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Oibo collapses when you accidentally step on it and pops right back into shape.

Nigi, Nagi & Nogi are soothing your baby’s sore gums without being an eyesore. Made of 100% food-grade silicone rubber, MOLUK’s new teething rings are easy for small hands to hold and offer essential tactile and visual stimulation. They remain interesting as multi-sensory fidget toys when the child grows older and work together with the other parts of the MOLUK family for years of open-ended, child-directed play.

9 Modern moms must have items

Being a mother in this modern era is not easy. The challenge is far more complex than being a mom 10 or 20 years ago. Beside this, modern mom also must be able to manage time and of course must able to manage financial. You may heard people around you keep telling that you need a stroller, a teether, a sterilization - but with so many options out there, how do you know what kind to get? Here, we give you the inside scoop on the real mom must have items.

Modern moms must have items

Stroller and car seat

What they don’t tell you: Definitely get the travel system and you need 2.

Yes, this will be the TOP of my list. Why? Because you will need this one in order to leave the hospital! So, assuming you want to go home with your baby, be prepared with a carseat. With a travel system, you’ll be able to slide baby’s car seat out of its base and stealthily snap it in place on your stroller in a matter of minutes.

We know what you’re thinking: Two strollers? But hear us out. You won’t always want to push around a heavy stroller everywhere you go. Having a lightweight and easily collapsible option on hand will be a lifesaver.

Baby blankets

What they don’t tell you: Choose swaddle blankets, they are easier than others for swaddling baby.

The swaddle blanket, comforting babies everywhere for centuries. By wrapping up baby, you’ll not only help her self-soothe, but also ease her off to sleep faster, since being swaddled will remind them of their days back in the womb. But you’ll need a swaddle blanket that you can easily wrap baby in. You don’t want to spend an hour (or more) trying to get a good wrap, only to have it kicked off in a matter of seconds.

Try this one: LOULOU Lollipop swaddle blanket

Baby carrier

What they don’t tell you: Try it on before you buy it.

Walking around will become much easier with a baby carrier that’s actually comfortable to wear. You’ll want to look for one that has easily adjustable straps on your shoulders and hips so you can evenly distribute the weight that will save you from back pain.

Breast pump

What they don’t tell you: Invest a good one, look for portability and durability.

Attaching suction cups to your boobs won’t ever feel normal, but if you plan on nursing, then chances are you’ll want a reliable pump. And if you’re heading back to work or find yourself always on-the-go, you’ll want to invest in a sturdy, daily-use pump that can stand the test of time.

Try this one: Medela breast pump

Feeding essentials

What they don’t tell you: Choose venting system which can help reduce gas issues.

How can you forget to talk about milk while talking about caring for your little one. Although at this time many milk bottles are being on the market, choose wisely, don’t choose those which will make your little one feel uncomfortable or even will make them colic.

Try this one: Comotomo

Diaper bag

What they don’t tell you: Get one you don’t mind calling your purse.

As long as it’s got tons of pocket space and a washable matte finish, and easily attaches to your stroller, you’ll be good to go. We found one that even has a front wipe pouch for super easy access.

Teething toy

What they don’t tell you: Get this very specific one called Matchstick Monkey.

There will come a time when you’ll do just about anything to make baby's teething pain go away. Let us introduce you to the miraculous healing powers of Matchstick Monkey, the cute monkey teether. Made of FDA approved food grade silicone, offers refreshing relief in an eye-catching format. Perfect for small hands looking for something to hold with ease. But why does baby love it so much? Whatever the reason, one thing’s clear: they have miraculous ability to keep baby happy and silent.

Breastfeeding pillow

What they don’t tell you: You need one for travel.

You’ll come to rely on this thing to keep you from straining your back while breastfeeding. Get a nursing pillow that’s compact and easy to carry around, especially if you want to travel with your baby.

Baby toys

What they don’t tell you: Buy a toy that can be used not only as a toy.

Baby toys are a good distraction and yes, we all know raising a baby would need lots of money, that is why choose your baby’s toys wisely, the longer time they played with it, the more worth it will be.

Try this one: Dena toys
