DH and I both have BIG families and everybody just adores baby Brady so I know we're going to get a lot of things for him for Christmas, which is great. People are asking for a list and I want to think long term and put good things on there that he can use for awhile, so I was wondering what toys, games, and other items would be good for 6 months, 9 months and up to a year? I thought the BTDT moms would have some good insight and then the new moms like me have probably seen things they want to get for their LOs too. Ideas/suggestions?
A sit to stand activity walker of some kind
ANYTHING Leapfrog! (I love Scout and Violet for the younger ages and DD is 3 and still loves hers) We have EVERY Leapfrog told sold, LOL
A jumperoo, exersaucer, a walker (you only need one of them pick your fav I am a jumperoo fan myself)
Any type of a block sorter, I love the cookie jar one
BOOKS! Soft ones, crunchy ones, board ones and ones you can read to you LO, I already read to Kaitlyn
What I always do is make a wishlist... I used to make one at toys r us but now amazon has a universal list so you can add products from ANY store you want! I am going to start ours today!
Big time thanks to jmmysterymaker for my WONDERFUL siggie!
He still has all these toys out now although I rotate toys so he doesn't get bored with any of them so some are currently in the toy chest. He also got a ride on tractor which he was a little young for last Christmas but he loves to ride on it now (maybe something like this for a first birthday). He also loves his push lawn mower that makes cutting noises. Blocks or wooden trains are always fun too.
Wow - hope that isn't too many suggestions. I am hoping the kiddos don't get too many toys this Christmas. Nobody has asked for a list so I'm a bit fearful of toys taking over our house. I am hoping for clothes for Madeline since we don't have many girl clothes after 3-6 months.
All good suggestions!! Definitely agree with the sit-to-stand toys. Xander loved his. And he loved/loves his Scout too. Learning toys like leapfrog stuff is good.
And books!! Books are good for any age.
So I think the girls pretty much covered it. lol
We are a jumperoo AND exersaucer family here. Walkers are contraband in Canada (no joke, they are illegal) and I'm not a fan anyway. I found the jumperoo was more for "holy crow gonna exercise my butt off", and the exersaucer was more for "just gonna chill" time.
DD also really liked the PlaySkool Poppin Pals (the thing where you push the button and an animal pops up), and a sit'n'stand ride on thing. BLOCKS - like Megablocks, something big and brightly coloured will last you for years too.
Thanks to Mom2*Lauryn*Jacob* for this beautiful sig!
Anything Little People. We have a ton of them and my 2-year-old loves them. Any chunky cars/trucks. The "Chuck" line by Tonka is adorable and Liam has been playing with them for over a year. And outside toys are always a hit too.
Since the jumperoo and exersaucer were mentioned already...I won't be redundant
