When your babies are young they don’t need many toys. Here is our ‘best of’ list if you are looking to give a gift or if you want to get a few toys for your little one.
Wee Gallery Art cards for baby – 0+ months
These cards are great and they grow with you child. The infant can see the bold graphic patterns and when you child gets older you can use them as flash cards. They are great to put in the crib or around the changing table when your baby is very young.
Sassy Ring O’Links – 0+ months
These are a must have. They are the most useful toys we have. The links come in multiple textures, which are great for babies exploring with both their hands and mouth. This is a huge bonus when your baby starts teething. These are one of the first toys you baby will want to play with – they are great to stimulate their first tracking and grabbing reflexes. The links are also great for clipping toys to a table or to a stroller so they don’t fall on the floor.
Manhattan Baby Winkel Activity Toy – Ages 0+ months
This loopy toy is the perfect combination of a rattle and pliable colorful looks for curious hands. If I could only have one toy for the first 6 months this would be it.
Sophie Giraffe – 0+ months
This slightly more expensive toy is made from soft rubber and food quality paint so it is safe for your child to chew on and it is very easy to clean. It may seem pricy but it is easy for tiny hands to hold and the squeaker entertains them from 3+ months…and when your child starts teething, Sophie will be your child’s favorite toy!
Sassy Play Stations – 6+ months
These Suction cup toys are great for highchairs, travel and restaurants. The base of the toy can suction to any flat surface creating a fun toy that parents don’t have to repeatedly pickup off the floor.
Sassy crib and floor mirror – 0+ months
Babies love to look in mirrors. This mirror stands on it’s own (and folds flat) and is safe for tummy-time. In addition, it has a loop on the back so you can attach it to the side of the crib or anywhere you like.
Skip Hop Hug & Hide Chime Ball – 3+ months
This huggable ball has crinkle arms and a chime inside. A great toy to have while you baby is learning to crawl.
It is important to introduce books to your child at an early age. Board books are a great way for your baby to interact with a book, this includes trying to eat it, and have the book last a long time. We love anything by Sandra Boynton (she even has a waterproof book for bath time) and Eric Carle.
