Crawling is part perspiration and part inspiration. Though your baby can take care of the sweating part on her own, Tiny Love has a special toy that will join you in cheering her along the way. Follow Me Fiona is a motorized self-rolling puppy that engages beginning crawlers. It features a multi-directional, accordion-shaped body that can move straight ahead or twist in a circular movement.
If this isn’t enough to fascinate your child, this adorable pet-on-wheels also has colorful buttons that play music and cheerful doggie sounds as she strolls. Worried that your baby will get left behind? No worries. There are two speed settings that allow you to adjust Follow Me Fiona to your baby’s pace. Also, if your baby forgets about her new buddy, Fiona will bark after a minute like a real dog to get your baby back in the game.
Not only will your little crawler enjoy playing follow the leader, but she will develop several essential skills when playing with Follow Me Fiona. She will work on those gross motor skills as she follows Fiona around your house. By watching this lively puppy make different sounds and movements, your child will enhance her cognitive development as she learns to experiment and anticipate causal relationships. And unlike many toys, Follow Me Fiona has a nice emotional aspect. Because this rolling canine barks when left alone for too long, babies learn to anticipate her needs and keep pace. This fosters an emotional intelligence from a young age.
We love this girly version of the classic Follow Me Fred. Check out the rest of this sweet, pink-hued Tiny Princess collection by Tiny Love, which includes the Tiny Princess Gymini Playmat and the Tiny Princess Mobile.
Tiny Love recommends these great activities for your Follow me Fiona toy:
Ages 6-8 months: Before your baby begins to crawl, place Follow Me Fiona in its circular mode, alternating between clockwise and counterclockwise. Also, try placing the toy in front of your baby on the floor and touch it to trigger its movement forward. The cheerful music and slow movement will attract baby's attention and encourage her to reach forward and eventually to start crawling.
Ages 8 months and up: Show baby how to make Fiona move by tapping it. Also, occasionally, position Fiona so it will move toward baby.

My daughter was a late crawler but this toy really encouraged her to chase after it. She is now a toddler and still enjoys running after Fiona. As a parent I love the fact that the toy has multiple features, for instance it barks/whines and plays music to keep your child engaged but also features a MUTE button. Fiona also has soft, crinkly ears and little dials on the side for your baby to watch. Speed can also be adjusted and you can move the body so it will either walk in circles or walk straight.
