Top Ten Toy and Gift Ideas for Babies
Bouncer, Jumperoos and Exercaucers
Play Mats and Baby Gyms
Teethers and Rattles
Babies from around 3 or 4 months love to grasp and shake rattles. A timeless toy.
There are tons of bath toys for babies from newborns to 1. A really simple bath toy for a baby is a set of stacking cups (or just any set of safe containers you may have around the house). Babies will be fascinated by filling them up with water and pouring them out again.
Shape Sorters and Other Sorting Toys
For very young babies there are teddies that have soothing sounds and lullabies to help them go to sleep.
For babies around 3 to 6 months, look for plush toys that have different textures for babies to explore with their hands and feel. Bright colored teddies are often popular with this age as well.
As babies get older there are lots of plush toys that you can interact with too.
There are also lots of other musical toys for babies from baby keyboards and pianos (suitable from around 9 months) to baby mp3 players (check out the baby einstein take along toy). As babies get older they will love banging on drums and even playing the strings of a guitar so there is a lot to choose from.
