Baby Toys

I am having so much fun shopping and browsing for things for Lucy. So far, I seem to have been focusing on clothes and books, and now I’ve realized that I need to start looking for toys, either to buy on my own or to add to my baby registry. We have a few things that I’ve bought or been given, but those are mainly stuffed animals. I know I definitely need to get some bath toys. What other baby toys do you suggest? What are some of the toys your kids loved the most?

    Wooden blocks, stacking cups, duplo lego blocks, mirrors, rattle/teether toys, the misc toys that can clip on to the car seat, stroller, crib rails- etc… those were Lore’s faves when she was little… and then when she could stand and play she liked those play tables- we never got one but she loved those… instead we got her an exersaucer that she hated… so wait on those bigger items to see if Lucy will like them or not hehehe… and then there is the good old stand by of a wooden spoon and plastic mixing bowl… it can be a drum, cooking something, etc hehehe…

    We didn’t buy many toys before Andrew was born. Rattles, stacking cups, stacking rings, play phone, and things he could spin, like one of those play steering wheels. As for bigger toys, the jumperoo & activity table were huge hits.

    Alexa is just starting to get interested in toys right now, at 5 months. She likes this one toy that is basically a round ball with swiggly things all over it & it has moving parts. It’s kind of hard to describe, but she loves it. She also loves her exersaucer… we have the little einstein one & every one of my friends that has the same one loves it as well. Right now she just likes small things that she can try to grab. Bright colors are good. I wouldn’t buy too much now though because she won’t use any until at least 4 months.

    My twins loved their Bumble Balls. The only place to find them now is on E-Bay.

    My little cousin liked plastic blocks and EVERYTHING that rattled!

    My experience has shown me that kids like simple things. My girls especially love the cloth books that have crinkly sounding pages. They’ve played a ton with their activity table. The jumparoo is a must…we also have a saucer which has come in handy when I need to cook dinner or do a little laundry. I think toys are kind of overrated, but there are a few that really make life easier :).

    Hmm … definitely stacking rings (we got ours for 25 cents in a yard sale, but now they have ones that play music and have lights!). Definitely crinkly fabric books. We had a Boppy Prop & Play for the kids (good for tummy time). Balls … there is a neat fabric one that makes sounds when you push the button for each country (it’s like a globe). Musical blocks (and blocks in general). Those “taggie” blankets. A picture book with everyone’s picture inside (plus items that are around the house, like the cats, etc.). Our kids liked the Jumperoo. Play car keys.

    My only advice is, for your own sanity, avoid noisy toys when at all possible, LOL!
