A friend of mine said her daughter had played with ‘baby foil’ at a sensory class. It crinkled & shone like foil, but didn’t tear or shred or cut the babies like real foil.
I set about searching for this fabled baby foil & came across the blankets runners wrap around themselves after a race.
For the grand sum of 72p, (including p&p), I purchased one of these blankets off Amazon. And me oh my was it a hit. It was also so big we cut it in half & gave some to Baby Girl’s friends. Who were equally happy with it.
The cheapest, most successful toy we’ve got Baby Girl in the twelve months she’s been with us. Not strictly a ‘hack,’ but also too good not to share.
