It’s super inexpensive and requires no batteries.

When it comes to playing with babies, how much your child gets out of it is directly related to how much time and effort you put into it. "Baby's development doesn't happen in a vacuum," says Rachel Coley, a pediatric occupational therapist who blogs at Can Do Kiddo. "A big part of baby hitting key milestones and gaining skills has to do with the materials, experiences and opportunities to practice that baby receives. By choosing toys and activities that match what your little one is ready to work on, you make the most of your infant's awake times and set the stage for important early learning."

This wonderful play mat lights up and play music, plus the hanging toys make noises also when touched. With over 10 toys and activities to keep baby busy, this toy is really hard to beat, especially because it has three different play modes. As baby grows, the positions of play change and so the Newborn-to-Toddler Play Gym allows these changes within the same toy. Fantastic as a sensory-development toy because of the different textures and shapes that baby can handle.
Let’s face it most of us take our hands for granted. Handimonium is a tiny hands challenge game from Mattel. There are 112 challenges featured in this game and two different ways to play. Simple things become outrageously difficult with the tiny hands. Players have to act out various things with the tiny plastic hands for comedic effect. You’ll have loads of fun. And, yes, the tiny hands are included!
Our church has a set of these Magna-Tiles and my kids love them.  Technically the manufacturer only recommends these toys for 3 years and older, but I would be comfortable letting my nearly 2-year old use them as long as she was being supervised.  Magnets as toys can be extremely dangerous so please use extreme caution and vigilance with children who still put things in their mouths.

Kids love toys!  Whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, or a birthday celebration, we’re always searching for ideas – especially for the kid who seems to have everything.  It’s time to put on your Santa hat, and start checking items off your nice (naughty?) list.  To get ready for the gift-giving season, we’ve picked toys that run the gamut.  From toys that sync, to toys that don’t require batteries.  As always, we’ll clue you in on some of the hottest items of the season, but we’ve also chosen toys that aren’t on all the “hot lists.”  Because off the beaten path is nice, and we think old school toys – like pogo sticks, knee hockey, and bikes are cool too!  And let’s face it, sometimes the (stressful) hunt for the “it toy”  just doesn’t work out.  Check out our favorite new releases and, time-honored classics below.  
The last but still very important milestone is health. By this phase, the toddlers should have already been weaned off from breastfeeding and have some experience in consuming table food. This milestone focuses on habits such as regular brushing, bath taking and simple, toddler friendly exercise. Since this is the phase where toddlers start to grow in pounds and height, it’s essential for proper nutrition to be included and frequent access to other kids means regular doctor visits for check-ups. The most common milestone is normal growth and physical ability.
One of the more interesting and creative sets we discovered at the Magformers showroom was the upcoming Magformers Sky Track Adventure Set. Magformers is the leader in magnetic construction toys, which are perfect for introducing children to STEM concepts like math and engineering as well as developing spatial reasoning, critical thinking and creativity skills. What’s cool is that the Sky Track Adventure set allows kids to build several cool configurations and race a battery-powered rocket along the track.

“I love puppets. They’re a personification of this really cool-looking thing that seems to talk and engage with them. How fun is that?” Dr. Golinkoff says. “It’s great because it’s another persona that speaks and allows them to engage.” Here’s a set of animals and family members to elevate the bedtime story — and further develop your child’s language-acquisition skills and imagination.


For gross motor skills milestones, the toddler should achieve ability in walking, climbing and stomping around. By age two, they should be able to walk at ease, perform basic running and catch, throw, and kick objects such as balls. Another milestone of this skill for toddlers is the ability to sit upright in the very early stages of this phase as well. Lastly, walking up steps should happen without assistance and toddlers should be able to bend, squat without falling over.
Push the buttons on BeatBo’s belly or feet to trigger a medley of toe-tapping songs. There’s even a baby DJ option where you can record short phrases for BeatBo to remix into a dance tune — great for a tot who’s beginning to discover music. “Young kids love to make music and noises and exploring things, like, Can I make it softer? Can I make it louder?” Lytle says. “What happens when I hit it harder? Does that make it louder? That’s a really interesting learning process.”
L.O.L. Surprise! Confetti Pop Series 3 is the top-selling toy thus far. Everyone loves collecting L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls. Will you find the new Ultra Rare, Punk Boi?!

“One-year-olds are starting to notice routines and patterns in the world around them, so to the extent a 1-year-old is getting into a car or taxi and going somewhere,” explains Lytle, “that’s a fairly basic routine that they might like to role-play with toys that reflect their experience.” They might appreciate this Taxi Push Toy by Manny and Simon, which is known for its ecoconscious, American-made toys. It’s perfect for city babies who’ll learn how to hail a taxi before they can speak a full sentence.
Connect 4 is a classic game played and enjoyed by generations. Experience the disc-droppin’ fun and excitement of Connect 4. It’s a game similar in nature to Tic Tac Toe. You have to try to get four of the same colored coins in a row to win. They can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal. The game is easy to learn and play but challenging to win. It will require a bit of strategy and observing your opponent’s moves to win. Endless classic fun for the whole family!
We recently spoke to Dr. Nick Cornett, a play therapist in northwest Arkansas — the play therapy center of the United States — to get his take on what toys he’d recommend for toddlers. According to Cornett, “the more open-ended the toy, the better.”  It’s just like how an interviewer avoids yes / no questions; they circumscribe dialogue. Cornett divides toys up by “real life” toys, “active or constructive” toys, and “creative expression” toys. Each genre offers the kid a chance to truly express himself, and therefore a therapist to observe. Here, per Cornett, are some parameters of — and our choices for — seven great toys for toddlers. 
Building blocks are popular toddler toys that provide an early lesson in the laws of physics. Your kids can learn about gravity, cause and effect, and the importance of a stable foundation without even realizing it. Blocks are a smart buy for young ones since kids typically maintain interest even as they get older. Start with a set of wooden blocks or big plastic ones that interlock. Both are a good size for toddlers who are still mastering fine motor skills.
Loved the first Snipperclips? The hit puzzle game returns in Snipperclips Plus with 40 additional stages and worlds and more than 100 unique levels.

Get ready for fierce at your fingertips with UNTAMED T-Rex Iron Jaw. They’re the distant cousins of the Fingerlings. They’re interactive and respond to sound, motion, and touch like the original Fingerlings. Over 40 sounds help bring them to life. They also roar, chomp their jaws, and let out a little gas. Kids will love recreating their own exciting prehistoric adventures. Collect all your favorites.
Want to have fun in the dark? The Crayola Picture Projector comes with 3 translucent markers that allow kids to draw right on the surface. Because they are translucent, the color is projected onto the surface. Controls are included for resizing the image to make it bigger or smaller. Using a towel or cloth, they wet erase so you begin creating again for hours of endless fun. It’s sleek and portable and even doubles as a flashlight. Kids will love telling ghost stories with this fun projector.
Teething is a phase that all babies go through and it’s not always a happy one. While welcoming new teeth is something to be happy about, for a baby, it’s something that can be painful and uncomfortable. Teething toys are so important in combating the discomfort that comes with new teeth and the Manhattan Toy Winkel Rattle is perfect for doing just that. It doubles as a sensory toy to give your baby a feel for new things and encourage them to explore their new toy while giving them a safe way to deal with incoming teeth.
It comes with six classic nursery rhymes, which play as the pages are turned, and there are buttons that slide and twist on each page for added sounds and music. The book can be placed in vocabulary mode to teach them new words or in music mode where the sounds of various instruments will fill the air at the push of one of five buttons. In all, there are more than 40 songs, melodies, sounds and phrases to explore.

This is the most natural choice….I mean, literally, the most natural choice when it comes to a teething toy.  All the concerns and certifications on safety out the window!  It’s a simpler design for a more advanced teether -- the two looped handles of varying textures can be seen as more for gnawing than for massaging sore gums.  And, the handles are more than a handful for baby’s grasp!
The Grossery Gang Series 5 Time Wars introduces a completely new theme to the line. The new collectible figures are from the future so the gross is gone. They come back in time and are sucked up from The Grossery Gang.

Created by comedian Jeff Foxworthy, Relative Insanity is like Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity, but you can play it in front of the family. It’s a game that you’ll love playing because you’re sure to get lots of laughs. There are punch line cards and setup cards. Someone reads the setup, for example: “When my cousin walked in with my new baby, my grandma blurted out _______.” Then players look at their punch lines and submit the one that’s going to get the biggest laugh. The setup person picks the best answer and that player scores points.
Milestones in sensory skills will develop in toddler phase one. These toddlers will want to touch, see, hear and feel virtually everything in their environment. Milestones include learning to perceive and identify different colors, shapes, textures and noises. They’ll start learning how to respond to their parent’s voices and understand when their name is being called.

This kitchen features a cutting board, stovetop, pot, pie baking sheet, and oven. What will you cook up in the Ultimate Kitchen? You can make veggies, sandwiches, fries, and even dessert. There are molds and several cool interactive features like a light-up stove, buttons, and sounds.


The first phase of block play is what MacDonald terms "tote and carry." Your 2-year-old is doing little or no building, but she can pile, haul, and drop -- and in the process learn about weight, stability, and balance. Of course a toddler's favorite lesson will probably be the noisiest and messiest: gravity. To the outrage of many an older sibling, toddlers learn quickly that what goes up must come down -- and that knocking down blocks brings an exciting reward. "Children like order and structure, but at a young age they love to create chaos even more," says MacDonald. "Just by stacking one block on top of another, they learn that unstable things fall down, while stable things don't."


In the next stage, "bridging," your preschooler begins to make her own simple structures. She may put two blocks down, then place a third block over the space between them. In addition to learning how to balance, she is beginning to experiment with symmetry. Bridging leads to "enclosures." You can't build without being able to organize and enclose space. How am I going to fill that space? is a complicated question, requiring that your child figure out how many big and small blocks are needed to get the job done. Not only is your child planning ahead, but she is problem solving.
For more casual, in-the-moment drawing, try these twisty crayons, whose shape makes it easier for kids to grip them. “Drawing starts teaching things like symbolic activity, even with scribbles,” Dr. Golinkoff says. “You might think that what comes out is mush, but they’re starting to have intent, and they have enough control to put dashes on the paper. Imagine how cool it is to be a 2-year-old and actually put something on a piece of paper and see art emerge on the other end.”

We recently spoke to Dr. Nick Cornett, a play therapist in northwest Arkansas — the play therapy center of the United States — to get his take on what toys he’d recommend for toddlers. According to Cornett, “the more open-ended the toy, the better.”  It’s just like how an interviewer avoids yes / no questions; they circumscribe dialogue.

Your creations are only limited by your imagination. After tinkering and experimenting with different designs, kids will have a blast racing their Hot Wheels on their own tracks.
Nyko has a cool Labo-inspired PixelQuest Arcade Kit coming this fall. It builds a cardboard mini arcade cabinet using your Switch. You can play supported games like Mario Kart 8, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, Metal Slug 3, and more. The pixel art looks fantastic. What’s cool? There’s a joystick and two buttons to create a six button layout.
This is a great way to introduce baby to new foods. Because it’s in the shape of the pacifier he or she is already used to, this will just seem like a new, tasty pacifier. It won’t require learning any new skills, and there won’t be as big a mess with this. You will still need to teach him how to eat with a spoon, but this is perfect for times when you’re in a rush or on the go.
Between 4 and 7 months, baby is working on sitting independently. If she's still sitting with support, you can encourage her to strengthen her trunk muscles (abs and spine) by putting toys in front of her and encouraging her to reach for them. Once baby can sit without needing to put her hands in front of her (called "tripoding"), she'll be free to use those hands to play with toys and, hopefully, entertain herself for short periods of time (but remember, never leave baby unattended).

This is a great toy for tummy time or for in the crib, especially if baby needs to hang out in the crib not sleeping while you pop in the shower quickly or run to the bathroom. He’ll be safe and sound in his crib and entertained by the rolling ladybug ball and twisting bee. As for tummy time, his own little face will have him looking up and strengthening his neck muscles for much longer than he would without this motivator.

LEGO DC Super Villains now allows players to play as the villians. How cool is that?! There are over 100 villains included in this game, and you’ll even be able to create your own villain to play with and level-up in the game. Players can expect a first-rate story written with DC that’s funny and engaging. The story revolves around the bad guys trying to be the good guys. Kids will have a blast reprising the role of the villain.


The LEGO Ideas Ship In A Bottle is a very classy looking set. Although it seems a bit smaller than expected, it’s actually 1:1 scale to many ships in a bottle. From a distance it looks quite realistic and what’s great is that it doesn’t occupy too much space. The cap and cork is exquisitely designed and great to look at. As for the ship, it features a nice build. It’s surprisingly sturdy and dense considering its size. Decide whether you want the boat inside or outside of the bottle beforehand, as it’s not so easy to remove once it’s inside the bottle.

Infants are constantly developing their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination. At the same time, they're rapidly taking in the colors, sounds, textures, and even tastes around them. Some of the best toys and baby products for infants allow them to safely explore those curiosities without proving too challenging or frustrating for their developmental stage. And if a toy can grow with them and last through a few stages, all the better.
With its blue very huggable body, the Octoplush is something that your newborn baby will surely love. The plush octopus is made of high quality satin patches that have been colorfully stitched on the octopus’ velour legs. The Octoplush plays soft children’s melodies in English, French, or Spanish. And while the manufacturer recommends the toy to children at least 3 months old, this can be used for younger babies as well.
Babies love books. They love the pictures and the act of turning pages, and it’s very often the best way to occupy baby without actively engaging him yourself. So books are a great distraction while you’re out shopping or while you’re doing the dishes. The best part of these books is how small they are – a few of these guys will fit in the diaper bag easily! And because they come in a pack that makes them less than a dollar each, losing one or two here and there won’t break your heart. Because that adorable little baby is going to throw everything out of the stroller anyway!

As your baby gets older and has more strength to sit on their own, activity jumpers and saucers can be considered. Consumer Reports says, "A stationary activity center can be used as soon as your baby can sit up unassisted (some start at about four months and most by six months)." The Baby Einstein Neighborhood Friends Activity Jumper is chock-full of activities to keep active and bouncy babies occupied. It has four activity stations that surround baby for 360 degrees. From an electric piano that activates various music, sounds, and languages, to a simple squeaker, this jumper has everything. It also has five height adjustments for growing babies, and a removable toy tray for easy cleaning.

While newborns are notorious for packing their schedules with only a handful of activities—namely sleeping, eating, and pooping—at around three months you will start to notice a marked change in your baby. At around that time babies tend to spend a bit more time awake, they notice more about their surroundings, they’re better able to hold things in their hands, and you might even hear those first coos and giggles.
The Nuby Silicone Teethe-eez will make the teething process a little easier for both you and your baby. This teether is 100% silicone and designed with soft bristles that will soothe, clean, and stimulate your child’s gums.

When purchasing you can choose between a blue or pink teether.
A: Both solid and gel-filled toys provide their own lists of benefits, so choosing between the two is easier than you think. Consider your baby’s developmental level. To determine which is best for your little one, consider at which stage of teething they are currently experiencing. For example, your baby, aged 3 months, may experience increased tenderness as their teeth are brand new and still breaking through the gum’s surface. A solid teething toy may apply too much pressure to your baby’s delicate gums. Additionally, consider how experienced your baby is with chewing or gumming as new objects in the mouth can be a little off-putting or frightening, a softer or gel-filled toy will be less abrasive. If your baby is a little older and has already been exposed to some solids, then a firmer toy is likely to be more effective.
The LEGO City Mountain Police Headquarters is the main core set for this series for 2018. It’s a police station built atop a mountain. There’s even a large garage paved under the police station.

This has all the hallmarks of a great education and socialization toy, along with its practicality!  The key ring not only keeps all of the teethers in one place and graspable, the fact that they are aligned on a ring aids in developing functions in counting, causal relationship, and the subtle manipulation of objects through the selection of one teething key over another.  In addition, the varying colors of the keys provide visual stimulation, adding to the soothing quality of relief from sore gums.

The most common milestone is normal growth and physical ability.
Interactive features include: Open and close refrigerator and oven with lights and phrases, whoosh sound when the toilet seat is lifted, a music player with four fun songs, peek-a-boo kitty or pop-up weather report and an alarm clock to help Emma wake up. When it’s time to pack up, all of the pieces fit inside the dollhouse that can be closed and latched for secure storage. An easy-carry handle makes this house ready for on-the-go fun.

Proceed with caution. Most products that make these claims have not been proven to increase children’s intelligence. In fact, safe household items (plastic bowls for filling and dumping, pillows for climbing and piling up to make a cave, old clothing for dress-up) are often the best learning tools. Remember, the more your child has to use her mind and body to problem solve and develop her own ideas, the more she learns.
Your newborn might look super-relaxed in his swing or bouncer, but it’s important to work in opportunities for movement throughout his day. "While it's easy to assume that our squishy newborns just need a cozy spot to lounge and watch the world go by, what they really need is time and space to wiggle, stretch and strengthen their bodies in order to master those mini-milestones of early development," Coley says.

During your child’s third year, his creativity is really taking off as he is now able to take on the role of someone else (like a king) and imagine that something (like a block) is actually something else (like a piece of cake). Look for toys that your child can use as he develops and acts out stories. Pretend play builds language and literacy skills, problem-solving skills, and the ability to sequence (put events in a logical order).

This isn’t your average playmat. Made for tummy time, diaper changes, naps, or simply cuddling, the DockATot Grand is for babies 9–36 months with a design that can grow with your baby. Transport the DockAtot easily from room to room so your baby doesn’t have to be confined only to the nursery or playroom. There’s a reason the DockATot is the most-registered baby product on Babylist. ($275; buybuybaby.com)
