Must Have Baby Toys for March Madness & Everything Sports

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, I don’t mean days filled with snow and holiday cheer. It’s March, and it’s prime time for sports. With college basketball championships underway, pro basketball playoff teams taking shape, Spring training for baseball and the pro-football draft coming to kick, sports fans are in heaven!

If you’re a sports fan, the first thing you want for your baby is anything and everything sports. Yes, you dream that they will be the next Michael Jordan, Joe Montana, Pele, Michael Phelps etc., hey you have the right to dream. And if they don’t reach those lofty heights, maybe they’ll be average athletes and enjoy sports like many of us did growing up. And if they have zero athleticism, maybe they’ll grow up a fan and look forward to March madness and times like this.

So if you’re one of those parents who love sports and want to engage baby in sports as soon as they are born, here are four great baby toys you must have.

  1. Estella’s Organic Basketball Baby Rattle Toy

These baby rattles are perfect for mini me during March madness. While they can’t quite dribble, slam and jam, baby can play their version of basketball with this baby toy. They can explore the texture, the soft rattling noise and as they grow into toddlers, they can use the rattle for imaginative play. I can come up with endless scenarios here, but this isn’t about my imaginative play! Plus these baby toys are made of all organic cotton, not plastic.

The Estella Elephant Alpaca Baby Romper Sets are also luxurious baby gifts.  Like the giraffe ones, the elephant pillow and the image on the onesie are made with a woven gingham.  This romper uses the blue checkered fabric instead of the orange one, but it has the same effect – they both scream high end baby gifts!

Knit Baby Rompers with Bunny in Alpaca by Estella

The Estella Bunny Alpaca baby Romper set is no different from the others, they too were designed as unique baby shower gifts.  The bunny set is also designed with woven fabric, but a floral rather than gingham fabric.  Also, the bunny is more subtle, a large part of the image is outlined in a hand stitch rather than with the woven fabric.

Newborn Baby Rompers with Own in Alpaca by Estella

The last set in the collection is the owl newborn romper.  This set was inspired by Estella’s owl baby rattle toy, they share the same outline and quiet elegance.  This infant romper uses a floral woven cotton and unlike the others, it uses a solid woven in more areas – on the feet, ears and eyes.  I hope you enjoy this new collection as much as we do.
