This includes a sturdy wood block puzzle, but if we had to pin down a theme for this set it would definitely be “banging.” Between the xylophone and the pound-a-ball, the child has plenty of appropriate ways to fine-tune that “bam-bam” skill. The xylophone is always a great toy for a kid because of this, and the pound-a-ball actually allows the child to see the physical change to the toy by dropping the ball into the pit below.

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."

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.
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)."

“Kids love to recreate scenes they see in their daily life,” says Dr. Cornett. A cash register is a great example. (though, a Square reader would be even more realistic.) We Like Fisher-Price’s Classics Retro Cash Register. A throwback to the golden oldie Fisher-Price from 1975, is sturdily made, comes with eight coins, and kinda looks like a slot machine, a nice if subtle jab at late market capitalism.

A: There is so much controversy around the use of plastic these days. In recent years, we’ve seen how its chemical make-up has had some undesirable effects on our health, not to mention our planet.

In all honesty, deciding what is safest for your baby requires speaking with your pediatrician. He or she can make recommendations based on your baby’s unique medical and developmental needs. Babies with certain conditions, for example, may need to avoid very specific contaminants, and perhaps even certain shapes and textures that can pose physical hazards. Your pediatrician may also recommend specific cleaning and sterilization methods, such as boiling in hot water and air drying, rather than using the dishwasher.


Teething is a phase that all babies go through and it’s not always a happy one.

Now’s the time to start them on a wonderfully classic set of wooden train tracks. “Kids love running cars on tracks,” says Dr. Golinkoff. “They’re not very sophisticated at putting the track together, but they love to take the different engines and cars to run them around.

Your preschooler is likely to take ball play deep into scientific exploration.

Also known as physics for 4-year-olds.

Babies love taking toys apart and putting them back together. They also like to "dump and fill" putting toys in and out of containers over and over again. Look for nesting and stacking cups, as well as soft toys that attach and un-attach with velcro. These important toys help babies learn to develop their problem solving and fine motor skills, while they practice over and over again.

When babies are older and can crawl after the ball, they are working on spatial awareness -- How far away is that ball? Where is my body in relation to it? As toddlers become preschoolers, spatial awareness leads to logical thinking. Now that they're getting the hang of throwing and catching, they have to start figuring out how hard to throw and in which direction. In other words, they have to estimate the parameters in which they can throw and catch.

The Think & Learn Code-a-Pillar is not only an adorable character that comes to life with lights, sounds, and actions, but he also helps little learners be big thinkers by enhancing their problem-solving and critical thinking skills. It comes with 8 individual segments as well as a motorized head. At an early stage, kids can explore and discover different possibilities of putting these different segments together. This creates a code or sequence to take him on his journey. Each segment represents motion or a reaction. Now as your child gets more advanced with their coding, they can challenge themselves with the two target discs. So you would have to generate the code to go from start to finish. And if that wasn’t fun enough, a companion app adds more fun games, more learning content, and it brings the Code-A-Pillar to life with new animation.

Now’s the time to start them on a wonderfully classic set of wooden train tracks. “Kids love running cars on tracks,” says Dr. Golinkoff. “They’re not very sophisticated at putting the track together, but they love to take the different engines and cars to run them around.
