Must-Have Toys for Babies and Toddlers

A comprehensive list of great developmental toys for children ages birth to 24 months.

The Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Learning Puppy is simply adorable! He's cuddly, cute, and teaches ABC's, 123's, colors, parts of the body, etc. This is one toy that can grow with your little one. My oldest child is 3 and still loves this cuddly little guy! And the bonus is that he's not crazily annoying and he retails for $23.99.

The Boppy Tummy Play Mat Pad has an adorable garden theme and comes color coordinated for either boys or girls. Your little flower will blossom while playing with the colorful flowers, bugs, and dragonflies! Toys include teethers, rattles, and crinkles. The soft mini-Boppy pillow cradles your baby and supports him for tummy time play. Retails for $29.99.

Lamaze Spin and Explore Garden Gym is a really neat creation. Your baby is able to comfortably spin around on his belly, stretching and strengthening his upper body while exploring lots of squeaky, crinkly, tactile fun. You can then remove the spinner once he is able to sit up. The colorful play mat has varying textures and layers, which will visually and physically stimulate your little one. Lots of fun that grows with your baby! Because of the length of time it can be used, it's a great bargain at $39.99.

The Baby Einstein Color Kaleidoscope is really interesting...even for me! It has three stages to grow with your baby. It has a wonderful way of engaging baby's senses. For babies 3 to 6 months, the handles activate lights and songs, which helps to develop eye tracking as well as cause-and-effect concepts. For 6 to 12 months, you baby will be able to grab onto a handle to see the color light in the dome and hear the color spoken in three languages. For toddlers, they can grab two handles to hear the color that is created when the two colors mix. Retails for $14.99.

Lastly, one of my children's favorite toys. The LeapFrog Learn and Groove Counting Maracas. These musical maracas teach counting and colors while engaging your baby or toddler in musical rhythms. When each color is said in either English or Spanish, the dome on top lights up with the corresponding color. In Number Play mode, another number is said with each shake of the maracas. Babies and toddlers alike enjoy learning and grooving along with the lively music. $14.99 in most retail stores.
