Testimonials

"Max absolutely loves his basket of toys; he's mouthed some, did some banging and discovered which objects made the best noise, and over turned the entire basket off the kitchen bench.. Exploration at its best! We can't wait to add to his basket as he grows. Thank you" – Debbie

 "Still loving all the items! Unlike the other (expensive) toys we have she doesn't get sick of them and will happily play with them for hours and days on end". – Stephanie

 "I’m so happy to have found NavyBaby. In the short time we’ve had our Set, I’ve already noticed a huge difference in how my little lady interacts with these toys compared to her other ones. I can see her exploring and really thinking about what each toy is and does. Each time we pull out the basket of goodies, she finds new ways to play and look at them. They’re going to be my baby shower ‘go to’ gifts for sure!" - Deanne Tipene

 “Thanks so much for your gorgeous set - miss 7 months loves it!! Beautiful quality, will definitely recommend these to others and will bring them up at my next playgroup meeting, as I'd like to purchase some more for there too!" – Nell

 “Logan finds it pretty epic since he’s now climbing everything! I can’t recommend the Stair Rock enough, it’s a must have!" - Kahu and Cage.

 "I still love our set so much. Two months on and I absolutely love watching Pia use every object and how her play changes as she gets older. Sometimes if she has a couple of days without her set, it's like she's never seen it before and she will be completely wrapped up in discovering it again for solid periods of time. Our set is by far the best resource for her learning we have ...at home. Your doing excellent work I can't rate this stuff highly enough!!" – Talia

 "Thank you for the quality and variety of resources that come in your Base Set. Evie has just started grabbing and has found it very interesting that things in her hands can end up in her mouth. A whole lot of exploration and curiosity going on this morning".- Emma

"We absolutely love our NavyBaby basket. Its been through both our sons and my eldest loves it to bits! Sometimes I even have to ask him nicely to share it with his little brother ;) Its definitely helped my boys to be creative. Thank you so much for all the work you have put into this! And best of all, thank you for not including any plastic and making this earth a better place for our little ones xx" - Instagram: @haaileymcc

 "We received our set last week! Once we excitedly opened the courier bag we were greeted with the most beautifully wrapped parcel. I carefully unwrapped our precious new treasures and put them in the basket next to Hudson. He had a blast exploring what happens when he bangs the tools together. He spent a good 25 minutes discovering what his new treasures can do. I cant wait to see where his development leads him next. I'm really impressed with the quality of each item and highly recommend!" – Kylie

 "Arthur is still loving his basket, as well as his new ring stacker. He literally only plays with this basket - there is always so much for him to explore and do. His big sisters (3 & 5) also enjoy playing with the items as well as using them to play with him - and I love it because how often are all 3 kiddies entertained?!" – Amy

 "Both my 5 month old and my 5 year old are getting lots of enjoyment out of their basket!" – Kerrie

 My two babes (Mr 3 & Miss 1) have been outside all afternoon with your set! I have always loved reading your posts and have learnt so much from the information sheet inside the package too. Now I'm watching them both play without me, completely engrossed and actually understand the message you guys are getting across. Thanks so much, can't wait to buy more sets for friends in the future! A game changer for first birthdays and baby showers" – Alison

 "Guy loved his set from the moment it arrived! I haven't seen him this focused in play like this in a long time. Such an eye opener! The information sheet was a real bonus, Thank you!" – Amy

"I love how each time our son plays with our NavyBaby Set his imagination goes somewhere completely different. He has the freedom to decide what each item will be. The handy bag makes it an easy portable kit for waiting rooms, bottom of the pram, visiting grandparents etc. My son is genuinely excited and interested every time he has the bag!. It has been a hit with our curious toddler visitors too. Thank you for selling play equipment with endless possibilities!" - Mel Liddy

 “If you are wanting to give your child resources to promote open ended play and don’t know where to start, the Navybaby Base Set is fantastic! I put ours in the play area about two weeks ago and Edie is always reaching for it. She loves picking out different pieces and it’s great seeing her so engaged and using her imagination! Such a fantastic purchase!” - Jess Robinson

"I absolutely adore your products and highly recommend them to all my mummy friends. Its a wonderful concept and allows growing minds to explore without the worry for their safety - my daughter Indigo and I are big fans!!" - Instagram: @the.fourth.trimester

 "I sat with Sonny for AGES yesterday as he explored the NavyBaby Base Set. It was magical. He was so excited to start with but quickly settled into very calm, incredibly focused exploration. I was mesmerised as I watched him and tried to refrain from interfering and just gently sportscast what he was doing. He was particularly interested in the ladder, the spoon and the twig ball on this occasion and I witnessed a light bulb moment as he repeatedly experimented with trying to pick up the ball with one hand, only to discover that two hands worked better. It was just lovely and it slowed me down and allowed me to really focus in on him. Thank you so much!!" - Sarah Fletcher

 "This is amazing!! My package has just been delivered! Wow! I feel like a kid at Christmas with everything in here. The items are beautiful!! He absolutely loves his basket. He has gone through the whole basket exploring the different textures. He is also discovering that he can create noises and sounds which is awesome too!! Thank you sooo much for these beautiful items." – Ninette

 "The Stacker Set is awesome! Ava will go straight for it if she sees the rings on it, her favourite thing is to take the rings off and throw them around! She's teething so they are getting a good chomping on too which I don't mind because its natural wood!" - Instagram @theaveragekiwimum

 "I am so super impressed with the thoughtfulness of the heuristic bags that you offer. These have gorgeous, high quality, open ended resources for keen explorers! I love seeing my curious explorers enjoying this range of materials too, making connections to the wider world!" - Tiny Pilla 

 "I need more of these for gifts! I got home and put the items in the basket and my wee girl hasn't looked at me since. She loves it!! Can I please order two more. Thanks so much". – Jessica

 "Marley was fortunate enough to receive this awesome gift from the lovely staff at the preschool I worked at while I was pregnant. Its a NZ based company that puts together hampers full of play bits and bobs, fostering opportunities for children to create, imagine and discover their own potential through heuristic play. I absolutely love this concept, it also goes to show, kids dont need expensive toys. They have the imagination to create play with everyday items!" - Vannessa Felix

 "Thank you so much for our basket! Lorelai is loving her set and I'm sure the other children I look after will love it too when they arrive this morning". – Krista

 "I think judging by my little ones face of concentration (tongue out) and enjoyment this was a definite Christmas present fave! Thank you for making it easy to buy a readymade kit of interesting items for her development!." - Philippa Cadwallader

 "We bought the Mini Set for my 4 month old. She’s starting to learn to grasp and place items in her mouth and these resources are perfect for that! Each item has a different texture and sensory experience - she spends 10-20 minutes of meaningful exploration with these wonderful heuristic resources. Undoubtedly as she grows I will happily continue to grow her collection. So happy and highly recommend!". - Jordan White 

 "We got your BEAUTIFUL Set!! Thank you so much!! I was actually teary yesterday watching the twins interact with these objects in a way I've never seen them interact with their other toys. As an ECE teacher I am PASSIONATE about open ended play objects like these that allow kids to be creative and imaginative". - Shawn Barron

 "Thanks NavyBaby for our gorgeous treasure basket which is being enjoyed by both our 6 month old little boy and our 6 year old big girl. Such gorgeous items with so many options for play. It was initially just for our little boy who loves to examine his treasure basket through sight, touch and taste! But our big girl uses them for open-ended imaginative role playing too. What a win! - Eunice Price

 "Scarlett loved her first Christmas, especially exploring her treasure basket. She has only played with it a few items, so has more to discover yet. The range of textures in one basket is fantastic. I highly recommend!!" - Kerry-Anne

 "We just couldn't wait until Chritsmas for Poppy to explore her Heuristic Play Treasure Basket! In the space of 20 minutes she had individually picked out every item, inspecting and tasting and shaking and sometimes throwing each one. Any items she particularly liked she would roll onto her back so she could get a better look. I think it's fair to say that the giant button was her favourite as she kept going back to it. Thank you so much!". - Jemma Adsett 

 "My 6 month old loves his NavyBaby set. He enjoys exploring the different textures (usually with his mouth). It’s a hit with the toddlers who come up visit so I know it will get lots of use. It’s going to be my go-to new baby gift". - Nicole Measures

 "This set is amazing! I love to see my daughter discover the different textures and feelings. There is always a new favourite each time we get the set out. I find she enjoys these natural pieces and textures much better than plastic toys. They are especially good for sore gums." - Siobhan Catherine

 "Bodhi and Coda love playing with the bag of goodies. Coda was given this for Christmas and she hasn't touch any of her other toys since. Absolutely love it. Thanks sooo much and keep up what you're doing. M xx". - Marisa Lorigan

 "Absolutely in love with this heuristic play set from you guys! I have a best friend who knows me SO well! This has lived on my Pinterest board from a few months for Miss V, so I was very excited to receive this at my baby shower yesterday! Thank you" - Becoming the pearces


“Just wanted to say thanks for the super fast delivery and that my babe loves your stuff!” – Sarah S
