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

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.

Wooden teether, natural fabrics, or silicone teether?

Raised your hand if you have tried to bite your baby teether? Have you ever try wooden teether? How was it? I have tried both silicone and wooden, I prefer chewing my bubble gum, but the feeling of biting teether was not that bad and weird.

Frankly saying, I like silicone teether better than wooden, but this is my personal opinion apart from what best for my baby. Silicone teether is way cuter than wooden one, colorful and attractive. We all knew choosing a teether for your little one’s aching gums could be so complicated.

A teether is an object which when chewed by the babies give relieve to their sore gums. The teethers are available having the different bases such as wooden, BPA-free plastic, natural rubber, and silicone.

Below content is quoted from QParent blog post.

You’ll definitely want to avoid any silicone teether that contain BPA, PVC, or phthalates.

  • BPA or bisphenol-A is a plastics chemical that mimics estrogen and disrupts the body’s hormonal systems. It’s particularly harmful for pregnant women, babies, and young kids. Though most regulatory bodies, including the FDA, will tell you BPA is safe in the small quantities that appear in plastic products, many companies have chosen to produce and market BPA-free plastics. Excellent! Except for one small detail: Many companies simply replace BPA with BPS — bisphenol-S — which is just as toxic, if not more toxic, than BPA. Bottom line? Just because a product is touted as BPA-free doesn’t mean it’s safe.

  • PVC or polyvinyl chloride is the third most common plastic in the world — and also the most toxic. It’s bad stuff, and you definitely don’t want it in something your kids will put in their mouths.

  • Phthalates are chemicals added to plastics to make them soft and supple. (PVC is actually hard and brittle so to make something like a squeezy toy requires the addition of phthalates.) Phthalates don’t bond to plastic, though, so they leach out over time. Babies who suck on teethers containing phthalates will be ingesting a known carcinogen. Baby Center has an excellent list of phthalate names so you can check labels.

Wooden teether and natural fabrics are in!

If you’re super-concerned about plastics or your baby’s reactions to rubber, then wood and fabric teething toys are the ones for you. There are plenty of good ones to choose from. The teether made by using wood are safer because of having natural, chemical and plastic free features.

So, here are what I can recommend to you - trust me, I’ve try to chew them, but nothing happened, they just so durable.

At a glance:

These innovative monkey teethers are ergonomically designed to reach right to the source of the teething pain with bumps on the back of the head. Teething trouble is a thing of the past with this range and these are the perfect companion for your little one to provide comfort.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

April: I would recommend the matchstick monkey - it is fun and colourful, easy to pop in the changing bag yet sturdy enough that my son can have a good chew and I don't have to worry that bits will break off. I love the little nobbly bits on the back of the head as I can pop teething gel on it and my son can chew away. It is easy to wash with warm soapy water and the colour hasn't faded at all.

How did this product make your life easier?

Philipa: This is a great toy for teething babies. Although I was initially put off by the monkey design, it has really grown on me. My baby loves it! It has a teething gel applicator which is a great addition and it can be put in the freezer to provide extra relief for a teething baby. It is easily cleaned in the dishwasher or steriliser.

Would you choose this product to win?

Jennifer: Yes definitely, if this happens to get lost I would buy another in an instant. It should win for its versatility, ease of use and clever design. It is lightweight, small, easy for baby to use and easy for parents to apply the gel to back teeth. It would also make a great gift for something a little different.

What changes would you make to this product?

Margaret: I would not change anything about this product. It is such a great teething toy. It really does give my little girl some much-needed relief. We have had some bad teething weeks and this monkey really helps. There are so many different aspects of the monkey that she can chew. The legs of the monkey are great for reaching the back teeth too. Wouldn't change a thing.

Use Dena as your bath buddy, pool buddy, beach buddy

Having children who not enjoying bath time? You should try Dena. Not only for bath, you can also bring Dena to the beach, combine all of its games. Let me give you an example, when you go to a beach, stacked the toys and the wave knocked them down, stack as tall as you can before the wave come. But, never lose your Dena!

The best games are those that do not exist in reality, but are born and develop when the child wants.

How to choose a perfect teether for my baby?

Baby has a tendency to put anything in their mouth, usually this phase will begin when baby are 4-5 months old - usually called oral phase. In order for children not to enter things carelessly, you can give the teether a bite. Giving a teether not only stimulates the baby's teeth growth, but also overcomes the itching that disturbs the area of the gum.

How to choose a teether that is perfect for my baby?

Good quality teething toys will be durable, BPA-free, easy for your baby to hold on their own, and safe to chew on. Teether also shouldn’t have any hard edges. Some teether are designed for pain relief and play!

Teether is a toy that commonly used to stimulate the growth of baby teeth at the age of 5-6 months and above. Biting teether gives comfort feeling to the baby. Teether generally made from silicon and shaped slim so it is easily bitten by a baby. Before buying a teether, you should consider the following tips:

  1. Make sure the materials are soft and toxic free.

Choose a teether made from BPA free, PVC free dan phthalates free material. Choose a soft teether that is quite chewy. BPA or bisphenol-A is a plastic chemical that is harmful to the body's hormonal system. This is very dangerous for pregnant women, babies and children. Make sure the teether you choose includes the words BPA free in the packaging. Teether is usually made of plastic that is safe for the baby's mouth and has an attractive shape so the baby wants to hold it.

Choose teether that suitable for your baby’s age.

  • Stage 1 teether for infants aged about 4 months, teether function to stimulate dental growth.

  • Stage 2 teether for babies around 6 months old, the shape of the teether is denser, its function is to stimulate the next tooth growth.

  • Stage 3 teether usually used for babies who already have 2 teeth or more, the teether is denser, but soft when bitten, the texture is more rough, there is even a wavy, teether function at this stage to stimulate further tooth growth.

  • Stage 4 teether is a teether with a texture that is more coarse and varied. This teether is used by babies whose biting ability is getting stronger, because they already have several teeth. In addition to stimulating tooth growth, teether can also trains their motor movements to chew.

Teether also has stages that are suitable to the baby's condition. For babies who have not yet grown teeth, choose smaller and softer teether, don’t choose a teether with rough texture. While teether for 6 month old babies usually has a rougher texture to stimulate tooth growth, such as wood.

Choose a strong teether and easy to wash teether.

When buying a teether, try to hold the teether and then stretch it. Teether should made from strong material, so it doesn’t easy to destroy by baby’s teeth or their magical hand. If the teether was easy to torn, of course it would be easily swallowed by baby, which is very dangerous. Also, make it a habit to wash teether after being used by baby. Wash with hot waters, and sterilize as you clean and sterilize milk bottles and baby pacifiers. Use teether that have Biocote® Antimicrobial technology, it could makes your teether more hygienically clean and reduces the potential of cross-contamination.

Choose the teether that is easy to hold.

Teether have a very large variations and this can attracts baby. But, make sure teether shape is easy to hold. Teether size must match the size of baby's mouth, not too big or too small. If it is too small, it is certainly at risk of being swallowed and will make the baby bite his own hand, while it it was too large ti will hurt baby’s mouth. Pay attention while your baby use it.

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

medela-swing-maxi_32_1.jpg

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

11-2.jpg

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.

At the end of the fifth month, usually baby is able to sit with help, either by leaning on a pillow or holding it with his own hands. The little one is usually only able to rise from sleep and sit alone at the age of 7 months.

5. Crawling

Stepping on the age of 7 months is your busy period as a parent because you have to keep an eye on your little one who has started to actively move. At the age of 8 months the baby has developed his ability to crawl with his feet and hands, although there are also babies who crawl using the stomach or not crawling at all.

6. Waving

His ability to wave his hands is very important in his growth development milestones, because this is the actual expression of language. At the age of 9 months babies usually begin to find a connection between sound, gestures and meaning. They understand that when somebody waving their hand is related to the word "bye-bye".

7. Eat with fingers

At the age of 9-12 months, babies have developed good control of their hands and fingers so they will begin to pick up various small objects. At this age they also like to explore taste and texture, so that everything they hold will also be tried by their tongue. Because of that, watch everything that goes into his mouth.

Build learning kids by let them play with building blocks

Building blocks have been around for more than decades and most of us had played with blocks in our growing years. Building with blocks provides one of the most valuable learning experiences available for young children. Block play stimulates learning in all domains of development, intellectual, physical, and social-emotional and language, most importantly allow a child to free imagination.

Researchers proved that children who play with blocks when they are three, four and fives years of age will do better in math, especially Algebra in middle school.

There are several types of baby blocks in the market today. How do I know which kind of blocks play is suitable for my kids? We do believe that not all blocks will work for all age groups. There is a natural progression of blocks play and introducing infants and toddlers to block play is invaluable.

Blocks play for 3 to 12 months old

When babies are first introduced to blocks, they learn how to hold them, how to feel, they attract by blocks’ eye-catchy color, that is great for tiny hands that are just learning to maneuver things. Then start to carry them around. They will experiment with how blocks may sound when they fall, or when they bang them together. Through block play a young child’s expressive and receptive language is being expanded by learning words.

Recommended blocks play for 3 to 12 months old
