This is our first criteria for anything that goes in a baby’s mouth. Having said that, “contaminant-free” can mean different things, depending on standards and regulations from various consumer safety agencies within, and outside of the United States. We’ve tried to be as helpful as possible by stating each product’s non-contaminants policy, but we did make sure to select baby products that are BPA-free. Most of our picks are also free of contaminants like phthalates, PVC, lead, and latex. Some even go so far as to avoid petroleum, which is admirable. However, being completely free of any and all toxins is virtually impossible.

3. Promote interaction and language : Some toys are more supportive of playing with and talking to your baby than others. A book that reads itself to your toddler as she turns pages or pushes buttons leaves little room for a parent to interact. A spider toy that sings the whole "Itsy Bitsy Spider" song doesn't promote imitation of hand motions as mommy or daddy sings it to baby. Look for toys that do less for the child and that allow the space for you as a parent to ask questions, tell a story, sing a song, make an animal noise, and make observations.

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!

This classic board book — it was published in 1982 — has lift-the-flap options on every page, but it shows easy-to-digest animal images that kids can recognize. “One of the things we know about 1-year-olds is that they really thrive on interacting with adults, so books that encourage that interaction and allow parents to give in to that moment beyond just reading the page are the best,” says Lytle. “Books that involve sounds the parent can make and children can imitate, or a book that has windows you can open and talk about or anything else to that effect are best.”

At 12 months, children are learning about patterns in the world, which also extends to routines. Predictable routines, like ones at nighttime, for example, “both help them feel very safe and secure, but also help them learn about the world and learn what to expect next,” says Lytle. This feeling of security also applies to loveys, because at this age, children are capable of forming some type of relationship with nonhumans, even characters on a favorite show. A familiar doll or toy can add an element of predictability in a situation that may be foreign. “Objects and dolls can’t respond to the child, but it is something that makes them feel secure,” she adds. Even if they don’t know what is going on around them, they will feel safe knowing that they have their favorite toy in their arms. Try this fox Sshlumpie, which is not only a cuddly companion for a 1-year-old but also a great lovey that can be taken on the go — and to sleep.

Babies get so cold during their first year of baths. And while there’s nothing cuter than a baby fresh from a bath squirming in a big fluffy towel, baby being unnecessarily chilly for the sake of cuteness just doesn’t settle with us. If you want to keep your baby warm as you dry and dress him, this hooded towel is a great option. It will keep baby’s head warm while dressing the rest of him until you can dry and brush hair or get a hat on him.

For the most part, Dr. Cornett says, therapists try to avoid pop-culture toys. Why? Big names immediately set the parameters of play for the kid, thus infringing on imagination. “Every kid is going to pretty much play with Buzz Lightyear in the same way. A generic superhero is much better.” It turns out escaping the world of branded merch is nearly impossible. Whatever happened to the unlogo’d tight-wearing action figures of yore? They’re gone. We like Nina Warriors (Set of Four) from Child Therapy Toys, which can be pretty much any sort of superhero you want them to be.

“There’s actually been some research looking at kids using blocks with parents and it turns out that building blocks are a really good way to promote early STEM and math skills,” says Lytle. “Think about the language you’re using when you’re building blocks: bigger, smaller, shorter, taller. If you have kids and parents building bridges with blocks together, you’ll start talking about concepts like stability. Even if you don’t actually use the word stability, you’re still talking about complex engineering concepts.” The pastel-hued wooden building blocks in this 14-piece set have built-in magnets, so they won’t fall down as easily as regular blocks. Plus, they’re made in Honduras, with the goal of creating living-wage jobs for Tegucigalpa residents.
