Now that baby’s vision has improved and they are able to see the world around them you will notice a sense of exploration blooming. Now is the time to start encouraging independence and developing those early fine motor skills. Toys that are easy to grasp, make noise, and are brightly colored will be the star. Since this is also the age when teething starts to hit full force ensure all toys offered are safe for baby to put in their mouth (for more on teething see my Product Review on Teethers).
Rattles: Smiling Tree Toys
A teether, a toy, and a rattle all in one. Luke’s love for his Kleynimals has grown each month! They go everywhere with us and have been one of the best ways to keep him occupied when we are out.
Kleynimals is easily one of my favorite inventions. Keys that are clean and safe made specifically for your little one! Made in the USA of a non-toxic 100% stainless steel, these keys are free of dangerous chemicals and without any sharp edges. The Kleynimals Keys depict 3 animals (a lion, giraffe, and elephant) and come with the option to have them engraved. This is one teething toy that I plan to keep as a momento long after my children outgrow it’s need. These keys truly are beautiful, well crafted, pieces of artwork; worth every penny.
Teether was bought at a discounted price for the purpose of this review.
These silly little balls were an early hit in my home. They are easy for little clumsy fingers to grasp and hold onto independently. I recommend the rattle ones specifically because things are always more fun when they make noise! (They make little cars and animals too.)
