Congratulations on nearing the end of the fourth trimester! Seriously, this is such an exciting time!

The Charmer Play Kit is $80, or you can get a 10% discount if you pay up front which would bring the price down to $72, or “$36 a month” as it says on their website.

What is inside The Charmer Play Kit for Months 3-4?


Framed mirror

THE HOLY GRAIL OF BABY MIRRORS!

If for no other reason, this tiem makes the Charmer Play Kit a must have.

Okay, there are other amazing items in this play kit… haha

But seriously, this is and probably always will be one of our favorite items. We set it up in the play gym and my daughter loved it for tummy time. As she's grown older, we've set it up on the kitchen counter while she stands in her learning tower and I cook. She'll carry it with her around the house. She loves figuring out her reflection and how to see things behind her with it.

And what makes it so special: it's durable. Seriously, this thing had been beaten up in our house and not a crack on it! Easy to clean and fits in a tote bag or backpack.

Wooden rattle

Wooden Rattle

Made from sustainably sourced wood and soy ink.

My daughter much preferred gumming this rattle over the rattle in “The Looker” Play Kit.

She'd track the sound in the early days, and now that she's a year and a half she loves to shake it! It's baby's first instrument!


Rolling drum bell

This little toy packs a powerful punch in your baby's development!

It can be used as a rattle, learning cause and effect, feeling a new texture, and seeing how things are inside but can't come out.

A soft book

So this is one reason I love Lovevery Plat Kits, the items start to build off one another.

This soft book has loads of tactile features in itself. But it also has slots for flashcards. We used the ones from this kit and ones from our previous play kit.

High contrast flashcards

Seriously, babies love black and white flashcards at this stage. And these are made of some sort of baby proof material. My daughter couldn't/can't tear these and no paper cuts!

mirror card

Mirror Flashcard

Again, the piece about the play kits building on one another comes into play! We use this mirror flashcard in our travel card holder from the previous kit.

I had heard horror stories about mirrors in cars with babies. I love that the travel card holder is soft, and this mirror card goes in it. Nothing for a first time new mom to stress about here!


Crinkle pouch

A bag about the size of an adult hand with two compartments for you to play hide and seek with items in and practice making sounds with.

beaded teether

Beaded silicone teether

So this item actually wasn't in the first iteration of this play kit and I WISH it was.

The first iteration was just a smooth teether, but I know my daughter would've preferred the beaded effect of this one.

It's a great toy to practice grasping and transfering items between hands too!


Triangle Teether

This item wasn't in the first iteration of this play kit either, and again I wish it was!

So we had actually bought items that were more of this triangle shape. The triangle shape is important (from what I researched) for little babies mouthing objects since it gets them used to feeling things in the sides of their mouths, not just in the middle and back like with a rounded teething object. This is important to get them ready for talking and food in the long run.

hand to hand discs

Wooden Disc Teether

Honestly, my daughter never loved this toy… actually I'd even say out of every single Lovevery Play Kit, it's her least favorite toy and the only one I've never seen her play with.

She always preferred hand to hand transfer with the ring teether and rattle. Hopefully it's one they'll swap out in the future (or maybe my daughter is the only one who didn't like it and they'll keep it haha).

Is The Charmer Play Kit from Lovevery worth it?

YESSS! This play kit is a great deal at only about $7 a toy in the box!

You won't find a better pricing I don't think. I mean, most stand alone teethers I looked at purchase were $15, so that right there is already a 50% savings!

Now of course, I don't know your personal situation, so while I think this is a “HECK YES” for most people here's a little more insight into my thoughts on The Charmer Play Kit…

The Play Kits by Lovevery

Here's why I LOVE the Charmer Play Kit:

The mirror. Seriously, I know it's crazy to want to pay $72 for a mirror, but it's the best $72 you'll spend… okay maybe not, but it could qualify as top 10.

The other items in this play kit are pretty amazing too. The rattle just got more and more use as my daughter got older and I cannot even begin to tell you how perfect the items from this particular play kit were during out cross country trip from Florida to California when she was 6 months old.

They were small enough to fit in a little bag in my carry on and kept her SO entertained during out flight.

Again, everyone has a different financial situation. And it you're deciding between getting this playkit and the Looker playkit, OR getting some of their toddler play kits, I'd say skip this.
