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.

Dollhouses promote imaginative play, object recognition, problem solving and social development through role play. And we found the perfect first dollhouse for toddlers. The Fisher-Price Little People House is an interactive toy with over 50 different phrases, songs and sounds. This set comes complete with Emma, Mom, and Dad Little People figures, as well as a table and two chairs. All appliances and living room, bedroom and bathroom furniture are built into the dollhouse so parents needn’t worry about losing pieces.

It’s all about the interactive toys this year.  Introducing ‘Lil Gleemerz!’  There are currently three different ones to choose from and they have over 100 different reactions and interactions like purring, growling, farting (of course), light shows, light up tail, and so much more.  Oh, and did we mention they can say funny things, their eyes glow, and you can simply press their nose to enjoy them three different ways (game mode, light party, or hangout).  They’ve already been named one of the top toys of the year, so get ’em while you can!  See all the different color options here!
Stacking cups may look simple, but they offer baby a chance to use vision, touch and the pressure & stretch sense (proprioception) to perceive subtle differences in sizes - a valuable sensory processing skill. Successfully learning to perceive these differences results in the ability to stack, nest and sort the cups as baby gets older. One of the key features of sensory play is that it promotes a skilled or purposeful response from your child. The drum lights up and makes sounds in a cause and effect fashion but not in a way that is responsive to your child's different purposeful actions.
Tiny tots are rapidly developing new connections, refining motor skills, acquiring new speech and honing their balance so they can eagerly explore the exciting world around them.

It’s time for another tried and true baby gift -- Maracas! Since babies are stimulated by their five senses as each develops differently and according to their age, maracas can be a great toy for helping to sharpen those senses. They’ll give babies a sense of sound and control as they slowly bridge the connection between their own movements and the sounds that they’re hearing.
A floor mirror is a perfect tool to help babies become aware of not only themselves but of a human face in general. Mirrors are a great way to let them explore the world around them and see their own features which will help them grow cognitively. This mirror features several fun things to appease their senses, such as textured leaves and various cute insects that will encourage their sense of touch.
The Pai Circuit Conductor set is an interesting new STEM set demonstrating simple circuitry. It allows budding engineers to build circuits by snapping pieces together and powering on lights or decorative fiber optics. After building your circuit, you can control the flow of electricity using physical buttons. The companion app allows kids to visually see the flow of electricity. This set teaches electricity, cause-and-effect, and magnetism.
There are two kinds of developmental issues: Developmental Delay and Developmental Disability. While the terms are used interchangeably, there is a difference between the two but that difference can be hard to decipher within a child. Developmental delay can be caused from short term issues such as an ear infection causing sensory delay or a long term hospitalization causing a delay in motor skills. If the delay is spotted and intervened early, a toddler can quickly catch up in their developments.

This game is seriously a riot!  You gotta see it, for real.  All you have to do is add your favorite foods (think fruit, marshmallows, etc) to each fork and then place the hat on your head, turn it on, and when the music starts the snacks spin and you have to eat as many and as much as you can before the music stops.  This is the game this year that will make almost any family famous on Instagram!

While adults and children can play almost anything together, there are some toys that are designed for adult participation. As your child approaches age 3 and beyond, early board games—that involve using one’s memory or simple board games that do not require reading—are fun for all ages to play. Consider starting a “family game night” when all of you play together. Board games encourage counting, matching, and memory skills, as well as listening skills and self-control (as children learn to follow the rules). They also nurture language and relationship-building skills. Another important benefit is teaching children to be gracious winners and how to cope with losing.

Kids will love reenacting their favorite scenes from the movies and bringing the action to life with more than 30 points of articulation.
Considering these toys are for babies that will get everything dirty with food, spit-up, and what-not, their toys must be easy to clean. Machine washing for the toys with fabrics is a must because otherwise with just spot cleaning, stains will never go away. Most of the toys listed can be cleaned by machine washing or by simply wiping the hard surface off with baby-safe cleansers.
