**QUICK ANNOUNCEMENT BEFORE I SHARE ABOUT THESE AMAZING TOYS** I just released my brand new course called FILM YOUR TRIBE. It’s an online course teaching parents how to create family films with just an iPhone!
We have a lot of baby toys! It’s good to have lots of toys for Gracie to play with, but I find that we keep coming back to the same few. These toys are the best baby toys for Gracie because they make her laugh, smile, and coo the most. She is happiest when she has one of these six toys. I know her tastes may change as she gets older, but for that past four months- these have remained her faves!
1//Sophie the Giraffe
This teether toy is all over instagram and pinterest and is named #1 toy by lots of people! It really is awesome. Gracie is not really teething yet, but she still loves this giraffe. It’s just the right size for her to hold. She loves licking and biting at the different parts. And it makes a cute squeak that always makes her smile. It also comes with super cute picture books. Buy it here!
2//Spots and Dots book
I want Gracie to be a lover of books. She likes looking at books, but they don’t really make her smile or laugh… until I bought this one. Oh my- this has quickly become one of her favorite toys. I make sure I always have it with me. There are no words in this book- which I find to be kind of weird.. but Gracie totally digs it! We end up making our own words up anyways. Each page has different patterns on it that totally intrigue her. I got mine on amazon. The five star ratings convinced me.
3//Chew Beads bracelet
We didn’t give this toy to Gracie until she was a little older. She loves chewing and licking it! It’s made out of a silicone rubber material, but doesn’t have any sort of weird rubber smell. Plus, it’s easy for Gracie to hold. She loves this! Grandma got her this at a children’s boutique, but you can get it here.
4//Infantino link and jingle
Gracie has loved this toy since she was born! It makes a great rattle noise that isn’t obnoxious. This is one of the first toys she smiled and laughed at. It’s a little big to bite on, but Gracie likes shaking it and looking at it. It’s also easy to clip on her stroller or carseat when she needs a little entertaining on the go. I think we got this as a gift, but it’s on amazon too!
5//Baby Einstein radio
This toy has amazing reviews on amazon, and now I know why! Gracie absolutely loves this. It plays really nice music that we have not gotten tired of yet. This radio can calm Gracie down in a second when she is starting to get a bit fussy. We bring it to her doctors appointments, the mall, and especially the car. One time, I played this radio for Gracie on a two hour car ride and it helped her from having a complete melt down. This toy rocks!
This toy makes Gracie really laugh. She loves the nice jingle it makes. It almost sounds like a wind chime- and I actually really enjoy this toy as much as Gracie (haha!). We call it Zoey the Zebra- Auntie Kaity came up with the name. Zoey velcros, too, so we sometimes put it on Gracie’s carseat. I also love the black and white spots on the rattle. It reminds me of Gracie’s spots and dots book. Buy this toy here!
And sometimes, we just play with a couple toys at once! Notice how 3 of her favorites are in this picture! She’s so happy!
What are your baby’s favorite toys?
