My apologies that this Mommy Monday post is going up on a Tuesday. All I can say is... Mom Life happened. :)
James is going to be 7 months old on Thursday! I know I sound like a broken record whenever I write about how old he is, but I mean, HOW IS HE 7 months old?? It's insane how fast it goes. What in the world!
Over the past 7 months, I've come to see what types of toys and gear are MUSTS...and which ones we probably could have done without.
I thought I'd share our baby toy must haves today, because we've found some really great ones! And I know how hard it can be to sort through AAALLL of the STUFF out there to find toys that are actually of value and quality.
So, without further ado, here are some of our must-have, James-approved toys:
1. Noggin Stick
This play mat is the BEST. It has a piano keyboard that can either go vertically or horizontally, so your baby can either kick it while lying on the mat, OR he can sit and play the piano with his hands. The keyboard also detaches so that an older baby can carry it around with him.
James got these buckets for Christmas and they are seriously one of his FAVORITE things to play with! They can stack small to big or big to small, and James LOVES to drop the little buckets into the bigger buckets. They keep him busy and entertained, and they are good for mental development!
James love his alphabet activity cube! It play songs, teaches him numbers, letters, animals, and colors, and has so many interactive things for him to do. AND, he LOVES to stand at the cube by himself like a big boy! :) Definitely one of his favorites!
This octopus always makes James smile! He ESPECIALLY loved this toy when he was a little bitty baby. It plays different classical music and also teaches colors.
This is James' newest toy and he LOVES it! He rolls it around the floor and wiggles after it. It plays different Mozart songs and each side of the cube is a different instrument. It's the best!
Those are our top all-time favorite baby toys, as of almost 7 months old.
I hope that this list is helpful for you when sorting through AAAALLLL the toys out there. These ones are all winners! At least in James' book they are! :)
Have a beautiful week, friends!
