Our Favorite Infant Toys

Around 2 months is when Eli really started playing with toys.  It's very exciting to watch him learn to move his little fingers. He bats at things dangling overhead and grasps small objects (which mostly end up in his mouth--I promise this child has been teething for awhile).

Here are some of Eli's favorite infant toys at the moment:

1. Sassy Go Go Friends Green Bird
This is the first toy Eli played with.  It was hanging from an activity mat at a friend's house.  He started batting at it and I realized he was ready to start delving into this new world of toys.  I love how it is easy for him to grab, is soft, chimes, and has patterns and colors.  Eli loves the little ribbon arms.

2. Sassy Ring O' Links Rattle Developmental Toy

Eli loves these links.  They are easy for him to grasp and have various textures on the different brightly colored rings. I like to hang them on his car seat, so he will have something to play with and look at in the car.  When we reach our destination I usually find him soundly asleep, holding on to one of the rings.  So precious. 

3. Bright Starts Take Along Carrier Toy Bar
You can also see this toy bar in the video above.  I hang it on his car seat and it keeps him very entertained.  He usually cries when I start strapping him in, but the moment I pull the toy bar up and hit the button that makes the tiger's nose light up and play music he quiets down and stares in amazement.

4. Rhino Toys Oball Rattle
What baby doesn't love a good rattle?  This ball is so much fun.  It is easy to grasp, has colorful beads that make noise when shaken, and is BPA, PVS, latex and phthalates free!  The only downside is that E gets a bit frustrated that he can't fit the whole thing in his mouth!

5. An Activity Mat
Activity mats are awesome.  Any one will do.  We have an older version of the one above that was passed down from a friend.  This really keeps Eli entertained.  Ours has lights, music, and a mini mobile.  He grabs and bats at the hanging toys.  Does tummy time while looking in the mirror.  I love that you can hang their favorite toys from it.  A great way to keep your child busy while you put away his laundry.  :)

6. Lifefactory 2 pack Multi Sensory Silicone Teether

These teether toys are Eli's absolute favorite right now.  The rings are light weight and easy for him to hold.  They have different textures, which he loves to explore by biting them.  He even plays tug o war with me because he doesn't want to let them go! They are made of medical grade silicone and contain no phthalates, PVC, BPA or latex.  My favorite part are that they are so easy to clean.  Wash with some hot soapy water in sink, rinse, and done.  Takes 2 seconds.  You can also put them in the refrigerator or freezer to soothe babies aching gums.

Are there any toys your baby loves that Eli should try???  Please let me know in the comments!  Thanks!
