Our favorite toys, 4-8 months

Here are some of the toys that Cade likes best between 4 and 8 months.

Bright Starts Rattle and Shake Barbell Rattle - the thin bars between the rattles are perfect for gripping.  The whole rattle is lightweight enough that it's easy for him to shake.  This was recommended to us as a great choice and sure enough, they were right. 

Manhattan Toys Ziggles - Cade loves this toy because of the little rings.  They're just the right size for him to grab and then every movement he makes produces a jingle or rattle.  I often hang this one from his car seat because it's long enough for him to reach and there's enough going on to keep his interest for quite a while.

Fisher-Price Super Star Classic Stacker - With lights and a not-too-annoying song, this stacker has been a favorite in our house for the past few weeks.  I can balance the smaller two stars on top of the stacker and then Cade's touch will cause them to fall and start the music.  He loves it!  This is one that we use a lot while we do his sitting therapy. 

Manhattan Toy Winkel - after a zillion moms from my online birth club raved about this toy, I caved in and bought it.  Cade loves this thing like it's his very best friend.  The loops are small enough that they're easy to grasp and it's so lightweight that he has no trouble holding it.  The loops are also great for mouthing, so this has really helped him learn to bring his hands together at midline, then direct the toy into his mouth.  Our OT saw this the other day and she said it's one of her top recommendations for babies.  I can see why!

This list is a work in progress, so I'll be adding to it over the next few weeks.  For now I'll get this posted for part of the 31 for 21 series.
