Peek-a-Boo! I See You!

Babies are amazing. At no other point in their lives will they grow and change so quickly. At birth, they literally know nothing. They are creatures that operate purely on instinct. Fortunately, their instinct is to learn and try and test and taste (oh yes, must taste everything!). It's up to the people around them to help them, to keep them safe, to give them toys and objects that will expand their abilities and awareness.

During the first year of life their brains will form connections that will last them a lifetime. They'll develop preferences and personalities. They will charm you, drool on you, and rob you of sleep. And it's all worth it when they snuggle in and you know they love you just as much as you love them.

Here at the Happy Up stores we are baby crazy. We are always on the lookout for good baby gear. Like these Ty Baby plush animals. We love their super soft fabric, embroidered features, and engaging expressions. Baby will, too!


Here are a few more of our favorites for Baby:

Roly Poly Koala
