Have you ever hosted a Play-Date? Play-Date is fun & valuable learning experience for your little ones. It's so much fun to watch babies play together and use their imagination to play freely, just like the way babies are :)
Play-Date is a great opportunity for baby to interact with other baby and it's also a way to develop their social skills. Babies are often fascinated & stimulated by other babies and stimulation such as looking at another baby or touching hands can stimulate their curiosity which is crucial for brain development at an early age. Besides, Play-Date is also very refreshing for adults. Watching babies play & have fun together is simply a joyous experience. Mommy can share her parenting experience with another mommy and the "Baby Topic" is always an interesting topic to discuss about...
Being a SAHM, my daily routine can be pretty boring & Play-Date with other mommy & baby in the weekend adds colors to my life :)
I was very lucky to be given a great opportunity by Fisher-Price (as part of my Play Ambassador Program) to host a Play-Date for little EJ and his friends. With so many exciting Fisher-Price toys delivered to us, this was the most memorable Play-Date we ever experienced. It was also our first Play-Date :)
I hope my fellow parents enjoy our Play-Date experience with Fisher-Price here, together with the pretty mommy, Audrey & her cute baby girl, Olivia :)
At the end of this Play-Date (post), there will be exciting prizes for giveaways. So, Read, Enjoy, Join the contest and Good Luck, parents!

The Play-Date with Mommy Audrey & Baby Olivia was very entertaining and enjoyable. We had super great time together and this was also baby EJ's first time meeting another baby and as a mommy, I was very happy to see him being able to interact and had fun with his new friend, Olivia.
