If you are anything like me… I worry so much about my older children’s Christmas Wish Lists that I always forget my little angel babies some good presents.  I actually never know what to get babies and toddlers because they have all developed differently and at different speeds.  WHY CAN’T THEY JUST TELL ME WHAT THEY WANT!!!!

So I have searched and searched for the best toys for each age group.  Here are my TOP 5:

#1.  Oribel PortaPlay Activity Center  (5 months-12 months)  The PortaPlay has a variety of different toys to help with motor skills.  I LOVED that it grows with your babies and can also become an activity table.  My older girls have been using it to draw and do homework on.  It can completely fold flat, which all of us love, for easy storage.  You can check out a video of it here and purchase Oribel PortaPlay Activity Center – Forest Friends.


I will also be purchasing the PortaPlay Art Paper Roll Dispenser.  The chair and table will fit up to 5 years old.  You can’t go wrong with this Activity Center.


#2. Lamaze Take Along Toys   (newborn- 12 months)  The Lamaze toys which come in quite a variety are fabulous.  They are oversized, plush, and have many activities for baby to play with and chew on.  I have had a couple through all 5 kids.  I love this Lamaze Jingle Jellyfish and the Lamaze Clip & Go Firefly Freddie,Freddie the Firefly.  A Bonus they hook onto your carseat.

#3.  Fisher-Price Bright Beats Dance & Move BeatBo (9months- 36 months)  Your kids will be entertained for hours.  The Beatbo dances, lights up, and sings.  It won the infant/toddler toy of the year and I agree.  It introduces ABC’s, numbers, colors, and more.  You won’t be disappointed.

#4. First 100 Words (9months- 3 years)  I have loved reading this book to all of my children.  It has lasted because the pages are sturdy and the cover is padded for the little babies hands to easily hold and chew on.  It is such a colorful, fun, teaching tool.  Also, a fabulous gift for baby showers.

#5. Ike & Leo Teething Toys (3- 12 months) These teething toys are all natural and freezer safe.  They have been a fabulous necessity in my home.  The softness will help relieve pain and soreness.   

Hope these will give you a couple ideas so your little angel won’t be left with nothing under the tree.
