Now I’ve always been a huge sports fan during my lifetime. When I gave birth back in April 2011, let’s just say a large time of my maternity leave was spent watching baseball games (on television of course!) with my newborn baby boy in my arms. When I first heard about the Baby Bat collection from Texas Timber Bay Company, I have to say that these personalized heirloom bats would have been the PERFECT baby gift to give a sports fan like me.
So what makes Baby Bats such a unique and special gift? Each bat is actually custom made to the length of your baby when he or she was born! How awesome is that? The bat is then inscribed with your baby’s name and other birth statistics such as date, time, weight, and height. Just keep in mind that the character limit for the baby’s name is 25. Of course if your child has long names, you can use initials instead. Bats can be customized with a blue or pink ribbon as well.
I love that the bats come in a variety of wood finishes — pecan, natural and cherry. We went with natural! The bats are made from Northern White Ash from the Catskill Mountains, or Rock Maple from Canada. Now I’ve held quite a few baseball bats in my life. I could tell right away once lifting the bat from the box that it was made from nice solid quality wood. It wasn’t too heavy for my son to pick up, but heavy enough to stay in place on our shelf.
When I handed my son the bat to check out, his eyes widen and a smile immediately appeared on his face! I have to admit, getting it back from him to display on a shelf was quite a task. He did not want to give up his new baseball bat! I’m sure he still thinks that one day I’ll take it back down for him to play with (and chances are I might…).
I’m really excited that my little baseball fan will have this wonderful heirloom to keep as he grows in years to come. It’s amazing to see how little he used to be! I couldn’t think of a cooler way to commemorate his birth.
