Gift Guru: Pick the Best Presents for Babies

December 5, 2012 at 12:47 pm Leave a comment

It may seem that babies are just as fascinated with shiny wrapping paper as what’s inside it . . . but the perfect gift will hold its appeal long after the recycling goes out! The best bet: Choose a gift with classic styling and classic play value for the little one in your life. Babies and young toddlers will love using their own power to make these toys click, clack, jingle, and roll as they delight in learning about the world around them; parents will be thrilled that these timeless toys hold their educational and play value throughout the toddler years! Check out some of our go-to gifts for babies in this first-year nursery wish list:

First Play – From grasping toys for the littlest infants to click-clack doors to open and close, these gorgeous toys are designed to stimulate new skills, delight the senses, and create precious moments between parent and child.

Grasping Toys

Stackers, Sorters, and Blocks – These captivating wooden activity sets are timeless favorites! Pick a favorite theme and add one to your little one’s toy box to boost key developmental skills such as hand-eye coordination and problem solving.

Plush Pals – What could be more endearing than a snuggly pal to hug and hold? Choose from a bevy of bears stuffed with personality and a lineup of silly and sweet characters that are sure to have your little one cooing with glee!
