Bamba Sign uses the softest of fluffy toys to teach parents the basics of Baby Sign. Bamba's First Comforts is a box that contains Bamba and five everyday objects. Each object is paired with a simple hand sign. All objects have been specially chosen as they are related to the early language development of young babies and are the objects/concepts that they are likely to experience daily. Watch this short clip to see how your baby is signing and communicating with you already!

The box set includes a parent guide with information on why using signs with a baby is beneficial and how it will encourage early development. But don't worry it's not complicated and it includes extra useful signs for parent and baby.

The Concept Behind Bamba

What is Baby Sign?
Baby Signing teaches baby to use simple gestures so they are able to communicate in those early developmental stages before they have learnt how to speak.

  • Avoid frustration
    If your baby is distressed and you are not sure why, using baby sign can help you to identify what is wrong and reduce their frustration.
  • Help development
    When your baby is upset and you don’t know what they want baby sign allows you to help them quicker.

Why Bamba Sign Works
Bamba sign uses the softest of fluffy toys to teach Baby Sign.......it's fun play time too for you both!

  • As Part of Play
    So you always have fun learning the signs.
  • At Home
    Or out and about, so you can sign at anytime.
  • Just the Basics
    There are hundreds of signs, but we teach the 6 most essential ones to help you communicate with your baby.

How to Use Bamba
The kit contains six luxurious soft toys and a list of associated baby signs in a beautifully designed sturdy box.

  • A Bottle (Sign drink / Thirsty)
    Glug, glug, glug. A little bottle helps your baby learn the sign for drink. By using this toy they can tell you they’re feeling a little thirsty which can avoid frustration.
  • A Spoon (Sign food / Hungry)
    Feeling hungry? Your baby can use the little spoon to inform you of their rumbling belly. Say the word as you sign and it will help your baby develop their verbal expression.
  • A Blanket (Sign bed / Bedtime)
    If it’s time for your baby to go to sleep, why not show them the sign for Bedtime and give them our soft and snuggly blanket. That way they know it’s time to relax and drift off to dreamland.
  • A Mirror (Sign Ah - Look at me!)
    Peek-a-boo, ITS ME! Your baby is on a journey of self discovery and the tiny mirror will help them learn to say Look-at-Me, when they need your attention.
  • A Bath Flannel - (Sign bath / Bathtime)
    If you want to let your baby know it's time for their bath, why not pull out this tiny little bath mitt and show them the sign for bath-time. That way they know it’s time for a good old monkey scrub!
  • And Bamba (Sign playtime / Monkey)
    If your baby wants to play, watch out for the sign for playtime! Bamba the monkey represents playtime and he’ll have heaps of fun helping your baby to learn the sign.
