Up until this point, I have not bought a single toy for G. We received a small handful as presents, but I figured I would wait on the rest until he started noticing/using them. That day has definitely arrived! It’s a ton of fun to watch him discover noises and textures! He’s also very good about playing by himself, which gives me time to get stuff done around the house.
So, all of you moms out there– PLEASE chime in. What was your baby’s favorite toy? I don’t want to buy lots of useless things that will clutter up our apartment. Also, as I’ve mentioned before on this blog, Jesse has banned all toys that make electronic noise 🙂 Granted, I still use the “tunes” on his swing and bouncers, but ONLY when Jesse is gone…Wood/organic toys are definitely a plus!
Here are a few of my ideas:
Exersaucer Triple Fun–3 in 1, so it will grow with him
Playmat Gym— I pretty much just like this one for the color scheme. Something really bothers me about crazy neon colors!
Prop n’ Play gym— Seems like a genius idea. Perhaps unnecessary?
Ikea Play Mat— Cheap!
SkipHop Playspot— Something soft that I can clean! There was just a big recall in Europe over this type of foam floor tile (the formaldehyde?)– someone else have articles/details, written in English instead of French?
