If there is one thing I’ve learned when it comes to gifts for little ones, more is not always better!
I remember when my first baby started to crawl, we had toys all over the house. I’d wake with her in the middle of the night only to trip over the abundance of toys that somehow never ended up being put away. Sadly, many of these toys were laying around, not even being played with for more than a moment…
By the time my second baby came around I had come to some conclusions about choosing the best toy for little ones and I decided to share some of my tips with you.
Tips for choosing the best toy for your little one
- Having less toys is better than having more toys - I have always found that my little ones played better with a few toys than an overflowing bucket of toys. When I did get too many toys, I always put a few away and cycled them.
- Choose quality toys – You may pay more for higher quality toys, but I have found it to be worthwhile. The toys last longer and you do not need to have as many. I found it actually saves money in the long run.
- Select toys that serve more than 1 purpose – Since you may want to have fewer toys in the house, finding toys that serve multiple purposes is great. I always loved having 1 toys that could do more than having 5 different toys to serve the same functions that you could get in one toy.
The Hottest Baby Toy This Season
I have a feeling that the Laugh & Learn Crawl Around™ Car (for ages 3 – 36 months) will be the hottest toy for little ones this season. This toy passed all my tips for choosing the best toy – let me share with you some of the reasons I believe it will be such a hit…
- It’s stationary – This toy stays put so your little one can crawl around and over it without having it more away from them. If mom is busy cooking supper, the toy can keep your little entertained near by, or it can be moved to where dad is folding laundry in the living room
- It has many purposes – Little ones get all-around learning with this toy “The interactive lights and sounds dashboard keeps baby busy with a light-up baby “GPS”, horn to honk, gears to shift, and more. With over 75 sung songs, tunes and phrases, and three modes of play, there’s plenty of fuel for learning adventures and fun!”
- The Laugh & Learn Crawl Around™ Car is quality made by a trusted brand – Fisher Price. Look at all the Fisher Price products that have been around since we were kids – it’s a brand that lasts!
- My friends have tried it - I have a number of friends who already have this toy and they can’t stop talking about it. They say that their little ones never want to get out of it, or that they play all the time.
Here at Mommy Moment, we love giving back at Christmas. The Laugh & Learn Crawl Around™ Car will be one of the gifts we donate this year to a local charity. I just know that it will make a little one extra happy!
