(Product Review & Giveaway) Tale Time co – Reach for the stars and catch the magic
Tale Time co is a local Cape Town based online store that aims to explore the adventure of childhood.
The products sold by the store are Mama and baby approved. Each item that is stocked is carefully curated by Caroline the owner of Tale Time co.
Caroline (or Caro as her friends and Family know her) recently introduced me to her magical little store with the most gorgeous books!
Soft textured cloth books are wonderful tools to encourage babies sensory development. Touching and feeling different textures increases your child’s vocabulary and allows a baby to associate the textures they feel with a word. Word recognition not only builds vocabulary but memory and imagination as well. Touching texture is a very important activity as it helps to develop motor skills.
These books are light-weight for babies to play with and makes for easy travel. You can pop into any nappy bag, satchel or pouch. Each book also has a nifty fabric loop so you can attach it to a pram, carrier or cot.
· Non Toxic
· Printed with environmentally safe ink
· Made from quality polyester silk cloth and cotton fabric
· Easy to clean by hand or by gentle machine wash
· An educational developmental book
Black & White: Jungly Tails: (R199)
These gorgeous black and white sensory books are perfect for new born babies. Did you know that babies can only see black and white until they are about 4 months old. Touch and sound are the senses the baby is most familiar with as they experience these in the womb. The simple bold black and white images, crinkly page sounds and soft textures makes this book babies best and first learning experience.
Pony Tails: (R209)
As little hands explore the cracking and crinkling of each page a learning experience takes place. Fine motor skills start to develop as the baby explores the silky silk of ribbon and the curly curls of course fabrics. The colourful dotty dots and stripy stripes cause colour pattern waves in babies' brains to form and word recognition starts to occur as the baby touches each new sensory sensation.
Dino Fun: (R175)
Explore the ancient world of Dinos, Raptors and the might T-Rex. Have fun meeting these magnificent prehistoric creatures as well as learning some BIG big words.
Em and I loved playing with these books! They are just the cutest. Pony Tails was a winner in our family of horse lovers.
When Em was a small tot I had a few of these sensory books for Em, but nothing as lovely as these books! Im a big fan of sensory development exercises and allowing children to develop organically and at their own pace.
These books are wonderful for tummy time. Looking for gifts for a young child or a new parent these Sensory books are amazing as they are entertaining and educational.

Colour Monster Book by Anna Llenas
The colour Monster is a well know book series and famous around the world.
Teaching children about emotions is one of the most important things to do, as it is so crucial that kids understand what they are feeling, why they are feeling the way they do and the most important thing is that it's ok to feel these feelings and how to control them.
For so long emotions have been suppressed i.e.: boys don't cry, children are to be seen and not heard, tears are bad and the result is it has stunted emotional growth and development. Emotions are what make us human and it is important to understand and feel the emotions we feel.
The colour monster does an amazing job at educating children what emotions are, it explains these emotions and associated it with a colour - so children can better understand why they feel what they feel and why it is important to feel what they feel and more than that it is ok to feel what they feel.

- Board books for toddlers - R169.00
- Soft cover books - R139.00
