In our little house, we have a 6 month old infant. Our baby Zachary is currently teething and full of random bursts of energy. There’s so many great products that help sooth them during the teething phase, but what about the rest of the time period? What are some age appropriate toys for infants? I’ve created a list, that is generally aimed for the 12 months and younger crowd. I’m currently shopping around for Christmas gifts, which include my sons, nieces, nephews, little cousins of all ages, and of course the usual adults on our check list.
Manhattan Toy Winkel $7.56
This colorful tube maze is perfect for those itty bitty hands to grasp, great for grinding baby gums on and full of rattling fun. I love that it can easily packed into my handbag or diaper bag. It also can be clipped onto my stroller with my Mommy Hook (I have 3, I love these hooks!) and I can keep him entertained while we take Sonny to the park for a play date.
Infantino Activity Triangle $10.89
Does your infant love the sound of rain? This cute activity triangle has mini rattles build inside, with various pattern exercises that will keep your baby amused. We had two of these for our oldest, Sonny.
There are various toys, gadgets and hot gift items for babies under 1-year-old. You can purchase teething toys, stuffed animals with cute little musical buttons, or even reading books. Babies love to hear their mommy and daddy’s read to them. If you’re like me, I mostly buy the children clothes, necessities, gift cards, but they will always get at least one toy. Check these out the ones I listed below, they are some of the learning toys that Sonny and Zachary have used and loved!
You would be surprised, Sonny is 4-years-old and still loves to play the activity table, just to sing along to the ABC’s (some even have a bilingual version, Spanish). Whether its teething, adventure or educational, children love to open gifts during the holiday seasons…anything that is a toy will put a smile on their face.
