When picking out a gift for a baby, it can be hard to know where to start. The baby in your life certainly hasn’t asked for anything in specific, and it can be hard to tell what is age-appropriate. Your gift should be safe, long-lasting, and educational too. That’s a lot to think about! To make it easier, here a list of the best toys to give to little ones 0-6 months old. You can count on these gifts to be safe, age appropriate, and super fun!
Babies love to snuggle with and learn from from adorable plush friends. The Slumberkins Hammerhead is the perfect soft and educational friend! The snuggly lovey comes with a story and affirmation card that teach little ones to express emotions and resolve conflict. Hammerhead’s has many snuggly friends that teach different emotional and social skills! Especially perfect for newborns, the handcrafted Baby Octopi Raine Octopus has crochet tentacles that mimic the feel of the umbilical cord. This provides familiarity and security as they acclimate into the world. We have also included an adorable Sheep Rattle and ridiculously soft Maileg Bunny that little ones will adore!
As babies get closer to 6 months old, they start to grow little teeth! That means that they love to chew on things – well everything. The best gift you can give a teething baby (and their sleep deprived parents) is a good chew to keep a little mouth entertained. These teethers are totally safe for little ones to slobber all over, plus they are super adorable!
Little ones love to play and learn as they experience the world through their growing senses. That means that you can’t go wrong with a fun, educational toy. Black and white toys like the Wimmer-Ferguson Learning Cube are perfect for little, developing eyes. Interacting with toys like this will also increase cause and effect learning and develop motor skills. Toys like the Petit Artiste Gift Set also build social skills through connecting story and toys! Finally, a versatile mirror is always a great gift for babies. Babies love faces, and interacting with mirrors develops important social skills. Also, toys mirrors help to keep parents from standing in front of the bathroom mirror with their baby all day long.
Getting from point A to point B can be a huge endeavor for new parents. You can make it easier for them and more fun for baby with car seat and stroller toys! These toys encourage development for little ones and keep them busy in the car and stroller. Also, because they attach above baby, they will never get lost! A Itzy Ritzy Sweetie Pal is another great travel and life essential. A pacifier lovey keeps a little one entertained and also protects the pacifier from getting lost, which is a BIG problem.
Celebrate the Holidays with the adorable, new Little Sleeeies Holiday prints! These super soft and adorable bamboo viscose pajamas make great gifts that babies and parents will love. Little ones will enjoy the super soft and stretchy fabric and parents will appreciate easier dressing and the fun festive patterns too.
