Shakira, Fisher-Price Announce Baby Toy Line and Video Series [WATCH]
Shakira will be welcoming her second child with husband Gerard Pique in the coming months, but that's not the only baby-related thing the "Can't Remember to Forget You" singer has in the works. Today (Oct. 27), Shakira and toy manufacturer Fisher-Price announced a new partnership for a line of baby toys endorsed by the mother and global superstar.
According to Express.co.uk, Shakira and Fisher-Price's First Steps collection will be released on Nov. 14. Inspired by her own son, Milan, her music career and her husband's soccer career, Shakira's six product toy line will feature a musical football, building blocks and a musical bouncing chair.
Shakira explained her involvement with Fisher-Price in a statement, emphasizing that seeing the steps in her son's life inspired the line and the partnership.
"I saw how important developmental milestones are and how toys can help babies reach them - including with my own son," she said. "I wanted to design a line of toys that stimulated development in the crucial early stages of life, the stages in which learning can be achieved through supervised play, fostering the development of psychological, social and motor skills."
All the proceeds from Shakira's toy line will benefit her Barefoot Foundation (Pies Descalzos Foundation), which helps out poor and impoverished children in her home country, Columbia.
In addition to a toy line, Shakira also partnered up with the toy company to release a 12-video series aimed at new moms. In the clips - some of which feature baby Milan - Shakira discussed topics such as her charity, reading to babies, playing with your kids and how she can relate to other moms now.
