From the ages of 6 months and up, kiddos’ minds are developing at a rapid rate and they’re constantly curious. With this in mind, parents need to hunt down the bargains that will teach and outlast childhoods. From a short-list of top 10 toys for babies, I’ve pulled 3 of the very best, most educational, and amusing gadgets that will keep your cutie giggling, cooing, and learning for his or her first few years of life.
Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Say Please Tea Set
One lump of sugar or two? This adorable tea-set shows kids the power of manners!
Teaching children the importance of "please" and "thank you" from a young age, this set includes a happy teapot and her teacup friends. All of them are cutesy and cool with smiling faces and pleasant, expressive demeanors that convey nothing but the utmost happiness.
Plus, the teapot sings!
Manhattan Toy Winkel
Mesmerizing and super-cute, the Winkel was originally designed to be a teething toy for toddlers of teething age. However, the designs and interwoven tubes are durable for playtime and provide hours of on-the-go entertainment.
Kids can twist and turn the Winkels this way and that, admiring the vibrant colors and sleek make of each weave of soft, plastic looping. It’s a maze of continuous tubes!
At the center is an immobile block of red and orange polka-dots that captures each woven loop and releases it softly at the other side.
Lamaze Cloth Book
Absolutely everything is adorable and educational when it comes to this soft, crinkly book of peek-a-boo flaps and intriguing stories.
There are numerous titles – such as the Peek-a-boo Forest, Captain Calamari’s Treasure Hunt, Panda’s Pals – and so many more.
Babies can develop a love for animals while exploring the mysteries of a deep, blue sea, or gathering treasures with an enticing octopus. Or they can get to know a Panda Bear and all his animal friends. And perhaps, they could even venture into a deep, eerie forest along with a friendly owl to discover that there’s really nothing to be afraid of.
Each book is beautiful with explorative illustrations and stimulating colors!
