Hold the elephant in your hand at 10-12 inches away from baby's face, and allow baby to observe it.
Baby reaches out with her hand - at first, randomly, and gradually, with purpose - and bats at the toy, causing it to swing and make pleasing sounds. This effect is captivating and encourages her to try again.
As baby’s grasp reflex disappears, control of her hands improves, allowing her to reach out confidently to bat the toy or grasp it for further exploration.
Use the clip to hang Eli Elephant on your baby's car seat.
Hang it on baby's stroller as an on-the-go toy.
Place it in baby's crib for fun and play indoors.
Social smile appears at around 6-8 weeks of age, so when baby is around 2 months old, he may smile back at a smiling face (or take a little longer to reach that milestone). The smiling expression of Eli Elephant, combined with the jittery feature and crinkly ears help heighten baby's senses.
