The World of Eric CarleOne of my all-time favorite books as a child was The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.  As a matter of fact, once I found out I was pregnant, one of the first things I bought for Riley was a copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and a large stuffed plush of the caterpillar himself.

To this day, she still loves it when we read this story together, especially the part about the caterpillar eating so much that he gets a tummy ache.

Riley even had a few toys from The Very Hungry Caterpillar Early Learning System when she was a baby, namely the Developmental Ladybug.  We had that toy hung from her baby carrier, her car seat and even her crib and it never failed to thrill and delight!

Now that Riley is almost 4 years old, I've had to part with many of the playthings she had as a baby, but I actually hung on to the Developmental Ladybug so that I'll never forget how much she loved it and used to play with this particular toy.

The World of Eric Carle has recently introduced four brand new additions to their The Very Hungry Caterpillar Early Learning System and I had the chance to review them.  Keep reading to learn more!

I reviewed the following items from The World of Eric Carle which are available at Babies 'R' Us:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Squeaker Teether Rattle, which retails for $10.00

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Wiggly Jiggly Caterpillar, which retails for $15.99

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Wooden Stacking Toy, which retails for $19.99

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Days of the Week Play Mat, which retails for $19.99

4 Star Product Review
Disclosure: I received the four Very Hungry Caterpillar baby toys from The World of Eric Carle in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.
I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
