Because babies in the post or pre toddler years are the equivalent of miniature sponges – their minds absorb absolutely anything, which means almost everything is extremely important to their development. With that always in mind, I strive to choose the very best of the best learning-wise when it comes to baby toys.
This year, the top 3 picks among the best baby toys are expansive when it comes to educational and development. Each toy does and teaches a wide variety of different things to enrich the minds of your little cuties. Additionally, each toy on the following short-list is colorful, creative, and perfect for capturing and holding a youngster’s attention.
Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes
If you have ever traveled in a car with a rambunctious baby, you know how important it is to keep that kiddo happy throughout the duration of your ride. If babies are bored, they turn into screeching machines intent on shattering the sound barriers and the nerves of their fellow passengers.
Fortunately, you can keep your youngster happily bouncing in time to the music of these take-along tunes. There are over a dozen nursery rhymes and classical music melodies, encouraging music appreciation from an early age.
Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Soothe and Glow Seahorse
How can a soothing seahorse make a learning impact on your baby? Well – sleeping well is a learned skill - at least that is what many an up-all-night parent will tell you.
Little boys and girls are encouraged to sleep through the night, comfortably, while snuggling and cuddling with a plush seahorse.
There are little musical sounds that come from the seahorse’s belly, and each one glow gently to calm kiddos to sleep.
Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Love to Play Puppy
Puppies, puppies, puppies! At some point, your youngster is likely to ask for a pet, but the Learn to Love puppy is a guaranteed way to prepare your kiddo for the responsibility of a pup without the mess that some doggies can leave behind. Plus, this pup is super-educational with different buttons that do and teach different things. Push-buttons on the puppy’s tummy, paws, and ears are perfect for teaching your little one how to sort through shapes, count numbers, remember the alphabet, and learn sing-along songs.
