Tiny Love has recently released a new play collection called Magical Tales. This black-and-white toy collection is perfect for young babies. It features contrasting colors and bold graphics with black and white and a pop of soft muted colors.
I received the Gymini Playmat that includes characters like a fox rattle, wind chime badger, a plush cloud and peek-a-boo tree.
Here are some of the toys included with the playmat:
This playmat features 18 developmental activities and interactive toys; it encourages skills as babies naturally play. Its contrasting black and white details provide visual stimulation for newborns. The adjustable arches can be easily arranged in a variety of ways or removed, to enhance your baby’s developmental environment for the ultimate tummy time experience. Let your little one explore the shapes on the soft black and white book or look at their reflection in the mirror while practicing tummy time. The spacious and cozy play area lets babies stretch and experiment with movement and roll over. The playmat’s variety of textures, sounds, and features provide ongoing auditory and tactile stimulation. Through interactive play, your baby can develop cognitive skills such as “cause and effect.”
The Magical Tales Collection Includes:
- Black & White Gymini: 18 activities & interactive toys
- Black & White Super Mat: 8 activities Extra-large developmental playground
- Black & White Take-Along Mobile: 3-in-1 developmental design

Understanding the stages of cognitive development can help you guide your child through the wondrous adventure of learning.
Language & Communication
Language and other forms of communication enable us to share our ideas, thoughts, and feelings.
Fine Motor Skills
Fine motor skills are related to the hand, palm and finger muscles as well as to the muscles surrounding the mouth and eyes. As baby grows, it is important to ensure that fine motor skills develop in sync with emotional and physical maturity.
Through our five senses, we receive information from our surroundings and process it through our cognitive skills.
Gross Motor Skills
Gross motor skills are related to the muscles in charge of the less delicate functions our bodies perform, such as sitting, crawling, walking and more.
Imagination & Creativity
Imagination is our ability to mentally produce images, ideas, thoughts and even feelings that do not exist in reality and that are not available to our senses. Creativity is the process of transforming imagination into reality and the ability that allows us to improvise, take initiative and solve problems.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Social and emotional intelligence has a profound influence on future success. Understanding the basics of EQ can help you encourage your child’s emotional development and create a healthy basis for growing and learning.
