Baby Bundles: Sounds

For an overview of the Baby Bundles early literacy kits, please visit the original post. The cost listed is the list price of each item, regardless of whether or not we got it on sale/discount. The activity sheets amount was calculated by cost of binder clip + lamination sheets.

Itemized List

  • Tote Bag ($6.89) — 4Imprint
  • Baby Sounds by Joy Allen ($6.99) — Baker & Taylor
  • Hi! by Ethan Long ($7.95) — Baker & Taylor
  • Fisher Price Easy Stack ‘n Sounds Blocks ($8.00) — Amazon
  • Activity Sheets ($2.55) — created in-house

Total Cost: $32.38

Confession time: I actually started with toys while I was creating Baby Bundles. Since baby/toddler toys are a relatively small market compared with children’s toys, it seemed like I should get a list of toys that were appropriate for circulation before I picked out themes. Luckily, the toys lent themselves to natural themes and I still have a list of toys that I may use for future kits!

I love these Stack ‘n Sounds Blocks. These were another purchase based on a niece/nephew of mine adoring this set. I think that in addition to making a sound and being fun that way, these are also a great grasping toy for younger kids who are just starting to play. That being said, the sounds are not 100% unique — two of the blocks sound very similar to each other. I don’t think kids care at all, but I wanted readers to be aware of that!

Baby Sounds is a wonderful board book that talks about the sounds that babies may hear throughout the day. I chose it for the fact that it talked about sounds that a majority of babies would be very familiar with. I chose Hi! by Ethan Long because I wanted to include an animal sounds book as well.

It’s been ten months since the Baby Bundles debuted and this Bundle has circulated seventeen times.
