Christmas Stocking Stuffers for Babies

Are you looking for the best Christmas stocking filler ideas for babies?

For my baby's first Christmas, he was 6 months old and I researched lots of stocking gift ideas for him.

I also have an older boy who had lots of different toys he tried out as a baby as well as nephews and nieces who have inspired some of the ideas in the article.

There are ideas that will suit babies of all ages.

Here is a list of of lots of items to include in a babies Christmas stocking.

Bubbles

Babies of all ages love bubbles. Even very young babies love to watch them. As they get older they will love to try and reach and touch them. As they get older still they will enjoy trying to pop them.

You can't go wrong by getting some bubbles or a bubble blower or a bubble gun to put into a stocking.

You can then blow lots of bubbles for your baby and they will love to see them on Christmas day.

Stacking Cups


Stacking cups are one of my favorite types of toys for babies aged 6 months and above.

Babies will love to bang them together, knock down towers and eat them! As they get older they are great for building their first towers, teaching colors and counting. They are also great bath toys. Fill them up with water and pour the water out again.

It's always the simple toys that are the best and these are so inexpensive you can't go wrong.

They were in my 6 month olds stocking. The great thing about stacking cups is that there are so many ways to play with them and they really grow with your child.

Small Sensory Ball


Babies will love to feel and explore sensory balls like the ones featured below.

You can use them to roll on your baby's skin so they can experience a different sensation.

As babies get older these make nice toys for rolling, squashing, squeezing, throwing and kicking.

Musical Bells


We go to a music group and my baby and babies of all ages love the bells.
They are great for parents to shake along with music to emphasize rhythm to babies.
When babies can reach out and grab, they will enjoy holding them.

There are tons of other types of music toys. They include other musical instruments such as maracas, xylophone or drum. A music CD with songs and nursery rhymes that your baby likes is another idea.

Teething Toys


There are all kinds of teething toys that babies will enjoy and are the perfect size to go as stocking fillers.
Teethers are generally inexpensive and it's also good to look for ones with bright or contrasting colors.
Some good ones include teethers which you can put in the fridge which can help soothe gums.

My nephew who's just 7 months has the Sophie the Giraffe teether and it's one of his favorite toys. Sophie the Giraffe is an excellent teether with excellent reviews although on the more expensive side. Babies find Sophie easy to grab and are fascinated by the contrasting colors on the giraffe toy. They can chew on various body parts. My nephew takes it everywhere for him.

Skwish

Look out for a skwish by Manhattan Toys. It's a great toy for teething and for babies to handle.
My son has a skwish and at 5 and 6 months it has been one of his favorite toys.
He enjoys looking at the beads that slide loves chomping on it. Despite the amount of time it's been in his mouth it still looks brand new.
It's called a Skwish because you can skwish it and it returns to its normal shape.

Toy Keys


Younger babies love keys to mouth, chew, rattle and play with.
They are the perfect size for stocking fillers.

Toy Cell Phone

Another gadget that babies like are cell phones. You can get toy cell phones which are great for stocking fillers too. They are perfect for early role play and to entertain baby without having to give them your phone. Many of them have some great features to engage and entertain babies including lights, music, phrases and sounds.

Toy Remote Control

Babies love remote controls.

They love pushing the buttons and when they get older walking around with them.

Of course it is a problem when they have a remote for your television.

So why not get them their own as a stocking filler?

When my son was a baby, at 6 months he really enjoyed chomping on it!

Soft Book

Books for babies can make nice stocking gifts.

We make a point of reading to our baby with a book at least once a day so we can never have too many books. They are great for taking out and about to entertain babies when your away from home too. You can get soft books for very young babies that will click onto the side of a stroller or car seat.

Older babies may like some lift the flap books

Baby Bath Toys

Bath toys for babies are often a good size for stocking fillers. Ideas include rubber ducks, bath crayons, water squirters, or a wind up bath toy.

My older son also seems to like the bath toys that we buy for our baby so bath toys seem to last for a while too.

Soft Blocks


A small set of blocks makes a nice stocking stuffer. You can get soft blocks for younger babies and wooden blocks for older babies. Soft blocks are great to feel, squeeze, throw and mouth as well as building first towers. Wooden blocks are great for building towers and knocking them down again.

Practical Gifts

There are lots of practical gifts you can get for a baby's stocking. Ideas include socks, toothbrush (a toothbrush can make a great teether too), bibs, cup, beaker and bowl set, hair clips or headbands for a baby girl, baby mittens and hat, bib, sponge, pacifier and a face cloth.

Finger Puppets


Finger puppets are a great toy to entertain babies with and tell stories. They also make a nice travel toy too. You can always get a finger puppet out of your bag to entertain babies on planes, trains, in cars or at restaurants.

Food

There are lots of little edible gifts you can get for older babies. Ideas include small chocolate and a tangerine (for older babies). Or what about dried fruit such as raisins.

Plush Toys

Soft toys including teddies, baby first dolls and plush toys with night lights and music.

Car Seat or Stroller Toy

Babies spend a lot of time in the car seat and strollers, so why not get them a new car seat or stroller toy to fit in their stocking. Look for ones which clip onto the stroller or the car seat and has lots of features for them to feel, bat at and explore with their eyes and their hands. Lamaze do a nice range of car seat toys for babies.

Small Baby Photo Album

You can easily make one of these yourself. Print out some photos of relative and family members with faces that young babies recognise. Then you can either put them in a small photo album or string them together for baby to look through. Babies love looking at faces and you can talk them through the names of all the family members. A great stocking stuffer idea for little ones.

Taggies Blankie


Taggies blankies are adorned with ribbon tags that babies are fascinated by. They make great portable toys for entertainment too. Just take them in their baby bag.

Best Toys for 1 Year Olds

Sometimes it's the classic toys that are the best and it's difficult to go wrong with this combined toy of a shapesorter and stacking rings. By 1 year old babies have developing fine motor skills and will have a good go at getting the shapes into the right holes. A shapesorter is not only fab for developing fine motor skills but also fantastic for teaching the shape names and colors. Little ones will also enjoy carrying around this shape sorter by it's handle when they start toddling around.
At around 1 year old, children will also have a good go at getting the stacking rings on the pole.
​A stacking ring is a great toy for teaching babies about sorting from the largest to the smallest too. They can also have a go at trying to stack the rings on their own without the pole too.
Lots of play value in this set. It's a nice, quiet toy as well when adults would like to go without any flashing lights or music.

Toys for Outdoor Play

Toddlers just love to play with water and a water play table will be an investment in play for the next few years. Both my boys loved his the water table. They would enjoy the toy for a long time pouring in water and watching the water wheel turn around. They stand holding onto it, splashing in the water, playing with the little toys that come with it. It's a great summer toy (great from when children are standing up). It is guaranteed to keep little ones occupied with play while the carer can relax a little bit.

This water activity table has lots of cool features and toys.
Drop balls down the funnel and watch it spiral down the tube in the water and float.
Then scoop the balls up in the hand crank ferris wheel.
Turn the spinner to make waves.
Pour water into the big funnel or the small funnel to watch the twin wheels spin.
The toys includes 1 water cup and 5 round characters that squirt water
There's a drain plug to easily drain the water.

Play Tents

Play tents make a great summer toy for 1 year olds.  They're great for having picnics or filling with play balls. When the sun gets too hot, they're great for shading baby while they're playing with toys or reading books. As they get older they are perfect for imaginary play too. Some play tents offer high UV protection and others can be taken to the beach as a sun shade too.

Radio Flyer 4 in 1 Trike

I can't tell you how much my younger son loves his smart trike. It was another first birthday present and he is so content being pushed around. I have used it to pick up my eldest son on the school run.
The great thing about this trike is that it will grow with your child. There is a 3 point harness and safety bar for babies. The push handle will allow you to push 1 year olds around in the trike. As your child grows, you can adjust the trike to suit each developmental stage. The seat is adjustable and the safety bar, push handle and harness is removable. Eventually it turns into an independent trike which they can pedal on their own.
An excellent gift!

Little tykes Rocking Puppy

 


 

This is such a fun toy which can be played with indoors or outdoors.

The seat is designed to stop kids falling forwards or backwards.

Kids will love rocking back and forth. It's a great balance toy and little ones can learn to get on and off and rock by themselves as they get older and bigger, building their confidence.

The activities include beads, a shape sorter, a clock and more. It comes with bonus stacking cups too.

Imaginative Play

It's not too early to try and introduce some imaginative play for 1 year olds. One idea is to use food in the imaginative play as babies will have experience of eating foods in different situations. Check out the Leapfrog Picnic baskets which facilitates imaginative play for young children and gives lots of learning opportunities too.

LeapFrog Shapes And Sharing Picnic Basket

I bought this for my nephew for his 1st birthday and he loved it. It's a great toy for this age.
It features a shape sorting plate, where babies can learn to fit the different foods into the correct place on the plate. There's lots of songs which are great for learning about shapes, manners, colors and more. There is a lid which plays music when opened. As babies get older they will love to carry around the basket and put in and take out the items. It's also great for imaginative play, have fun having pretend picnics.
A great toy that will grow with the child.

Walkers and Push Along Toys

Many 1 year olds will just be learning to walk so a walker is a good toy. Look for a walker which can be used as a toy after they've started walking. Some walkers come with bricks and activity tables, others convert into ride ons and other toys. Toddlers love to push things around, that is why any toys they can push are great.

Car Toys

Car toys make great toy for 1 year old babies. My youngest son loves cars, He lays on the floor pushing and pulling them backward and forward.
A fantastic 1st car garage is the Vtech
These toy is great because the vehicles it comes with is chunky and perfect for little hands.
The toy offers lots of other play opportunities.
It features interactive role-play including a gas station and a car wash.
Moving the vehicle around and through the different features and pushing it down the ramp will improve fine motor skills.
You can also purchase more vehicles to play with the set. Each vehicle says a different letter. The vehicle included says the letter "V".
As the vehicle passes through smart points on the toy it plays music and says different phrases which is great for increasing babies and toddler's vocabulary.

Vtech Drop and Go Truck

This is the perfect vehicle toy for this age group.
It's big and chunky so little hands will have no problems moving it around.
They can also use it as a pull along toy once they are toddling.
As well as pushing and pulling the vehicle which my boys would have just spent hours doing at this age, there are lots of other activities. Put the balls in the top of the truck and it will fall into the bucket. Hear the truck count the balls as the go in. Then lift the hinged bucket to unload the rocks and start again!!
There are also 3 colorful buttons to press that play melodies, phrases and teach tools and colors.

For Energetic Kids - Vtech Smart Shots Sports Center

Suitable for kids aged 1 and up this is a great way to introduce very young children to balls and sporting activities.
Both my boys loved balls between the ages of 1 and 2, like a lot of children do. This toy allows you to shoot baskets and score goals.
It counts the number of shots scored too so a great way to introduce numbers. There is an animated board which displays the number.
There's also shape buttons which introduce shapes, numbers and sounds. The toy has over 50+ songs, sounds and phrases. And there's gears to turn which is great for developing fine motor skills.

There are other games to play too including a super cool target wall (with 3 dart balls included).

The entire play jungle gym pops up and open in seconds! Tunnels fasten closed with frustration-free easy-locks. It easily bends and folds away in the included lightweight carry case.

Books

Although books are not strictly toys, babies love playing with them and having stories read to them. Lift the flap books are particularly popular. There are some great lift the flap books for 1 year olds. When looking for lift the flap books, choose books with big flaps as they are easier for little fingers to open.Also I've learned from experience, never leave alone a baby or a toddler with a lift the flap books as their game will become rip off the flaps!My own 1 year old loves the Karen Katz book featured below.

Where is Baby's Belly Button?

This book has big flaps so is perfect for younger children and my 1 year old son enjoys looking at it.

Each page has a question such as "Where's baby's belly button?" and an answer such as "under her shirt".

You then lift the flap to find baby's belly button.

It's great for teaching body parts and other vocabulary.

My baby enjoys flipping the pages of the board book and helping me lift the flaps too.

Musical Toys

When buying toys for babies and toddlers it is very noticable that many of toys have music and songs. Also throughout time nursery rhymes have developed due to adults singing to babies.

Music and songs is very good for babies. Babies respond to and appreciate music. It is also instrumental in the early wiring of a babies brain. Singing to babies helps them learn language as the words are slowed down and emphasized.

Babies and toddlers learn a lot through rhythm too. Rhythm is also fantastic for language development and helps babies learn how words should sound.

There are tons of musical toys for 1 year olds that they will love, check out some ideas below.

Drum

1 year olds will love the effect of making noise when banging the mallets on a drum. Drums introduces babies and toddlers to rhythm and music. My son is now 2 1/2 and still loves banging on drums so I think it will be a drum will be a toy that lasts.

Vtech Drum Set

This is a cool little drum set. Be aware it's smaller than it looks in the picture but that doesn't make it any less of a great toy.
Although the drums are actually aimed at 2 to 5 year olds, 1 year olds will really enjoy banging on this. They can use the two drumsticks or if they are not ready for these yet, it will work by using their hands too.

✔️ Did You Know? - Auditory senses - Toys that make dfferent sounds such as rattles and squeaks are fascinating to young babies. At 3 months babies react to loud sounds and will stop feeding in response to certain sounds and at 4 and 5 months babies will follow sounds with their eyes, notice toys that make sounds and pay attention to music. So toys that make sounds can really attract and hold a young babies attention. 

Rattles

 

What to look for when choosing rattles? 
Colorful rattles which make different sounds, have different shapes, textures and beads inside are also good for babies of around 3 months upwards

If rattles have beads they will enjoy looking at the beads moving around inside the toy. As they get older it's easy to grasp the toy and shake it themselves.

The rattle set featured is great assortment of brightly colored rattles which younger babies will enjoy touching, moving, exploring and playing with.

 A great little set so you always have a different toy available when you're out and about or at home to hold baby's attention.

Place the rattles on baby's wrists and feet.

Firstly they will enjoy staring at them.

As they start exploring their hands and feet they will enjoy playing with them and make the toys make noise.

✔️ Top Tip - Tummy time play - At 3 months old babies heads are getting stronger and they will be able to hold them up for tummy time play. Tummy time play can be really beneficial for young babies as it helps them develop their motor skills, co-ordination and muscles. You can start off in really small bursts of a few seconds, then a minute or two. Keep an eye though, they may need not be able to hold up their head for very long in the very beginning and you may need to save them if their nose hits the floor. But tummy time can continue until they can roll over on their own and flip back and forth which an happen from around 5 months. 

Fisher Price Piano Gym

 

This is another kind of play gym which is cheaper than the rainforest gym above and is a great toy for babies from around 3 months

Stimulates Movement
Young babies can lie on the mat and kick the piano keys which make a noise when you kick them. There are toys which will lie above baby that they can try and bat.

Grows with Your Child
What I really love about this toy is that it will grow with your child. The piano can turn to a horizontal position so that babies can sit and play with it once they are sitting up. You can lay the toys on the floor for tummy time.

The piano can also be removed from the play mat so once kids are walking they can take it along with them and play it when they want.

My son actually played with this toy around 3 months at a friend's house and he loved it at this age. ​

5 in 1 Your Way Ball Play Activity gym

 

This is a very cleverly designed activity gym and it can be played with in 5 different ways.

✔️ Top Tip - Give your young baby lots of textures to explore with their hands. Look for touch and feel books, play mats and soft toys with different materials. 

Soft Cloth Books

 

There are some great baby books out there that can be attached to a stroller or a crib. At 3 months babies are starting to grab things and chew them so these books are designed to withstand this developmental milestone.

Touch and Feel books
Look for books with different images and textures they can touch and feel too. Of course, you can also read the book to your baby as well!

The Lamaze soft cloth Peek-a-Boo Forest book which is featured is a great example. It features big fabric flaps so that babies can feel and lift them. It's full of bright colors to attract baby's attention. The fabrics are washable too which is a big plus for dribbling babies!

Soft toys which attach to a stroller 

 

There are a wide range of toys that attach to babies strollers. Look for stroller toys that feature all kinds of different textures for babies to feel and explore with their fingers. They should also be colorful to attract babies attention.

Lamaze do a great range of toys like this.

Check out Freddie the Firefly featured. Freddie is the perfect toys for this age as it has everything to entertain a baby.

Attracts attention and entertains
It's colourful to look at and attract baby's attention. It features mirrors and squeakers to entertain.  There's different textures to feel, crinkly material to hear, click clack rings to play with and  a teether to soothe sore gums.

The hook can attach to strollers, carriers like car seats and diaper bags.

✔️ Top Tip - At 3 months babies will be able to bat  and swipe at toys and are able to bring their hands together and open their fingers but won't quite be able to grasp and pick them them yet. Their sense of touch is becoming more sensitive.  Toys that have different textures to touch and explore are good choices.

At 4 and 5 months babies will be able to grasp and may start to pick up larger objects. If they are teething they will lift them to put them in their mouth. They won't be able to pick up small objects just yet though.

Grows with Babies

✔️ Top Tip - Make sure that the toys are safe for babies to put in their mouths.  If toys are plastic, look for toys which are non-toxic, have no BPA, Phthalates or PVC. Many young babies are starting to teeth and as soon as they can grasp toys will be putting them in their mouth.

Playnest

 

I actually bought this playnest for a friend before I had my own kids. At the time I didn't know much about baby toys so it was kind of a fluke how much my friend loved and used this toy. Her baby was around 4 months at the time and she said she used this toy so much to keep her baby entertained.

The playnest is designed to support babies as they play. It's covered in fabric and there are activities around the circle including flaps to lift and crinkly material to explore and feel. It's great for keeping young babies in one place while you can do other things and you can move it around with you.

jumperoo

 

The jumperoo has to be one of the best toys we got for my own son when he was a baby. Babies will need good neck control and their feet will need to be able to touch the floor, so some 3 month old babies will be a little too young to use this yet. However, it's worth having as early as possible as when they can use it, it only is suitable for a few months.

We used ours from around 4 to 11 months. He absolutely loved and actually fell asleep while bouncing on it on occasion. They are expensive but they have a good resale value if you keep it in good condition.

The rainforest jumperoo has been around for many years. The jumperoo is adjustable with 3 different height positions.

Babies love the music, the jumping action, the many different toys to play with. The padding is washable to keep it clean too. ​

✔️ Did You Know? - you can look out for communication developmental milestones when playing with your baby.
At 3 months babies will smile when she hears your voice and other people's voices and maybe at sounds from toys too. They will enjoy playing with people and may cry when playing stops, communicating likes and dislikes.

​At 4 babies are becoming effective communicators. They will coo, use sounds such as ooh and aah, squeal and giggle. Babies will also use an increasing number of facial expressions to express meotions, a beaming smile or a crunched up angry face.

At 5 months babies may be really babbling away putting vowels and consonents together to make sounds such as ba ba. Although they won't have assigned meanings to works just yet!

​VTech Baby Rattle and Sing Puppy

Tummy time Water play mat

 

This is a particularly awesome toy if babies struggle with tummy time.

It's easy to set up, the mat is filled with water and babies love looking at all the colorful shapes and creatures inside.

As they get stronger they will be able to pat on the mat while holding their head up and watch the cute floating toys move around. So it's fab for fine motor skils too.

✔️ Did You Know? - sleep patterns vary wildy but 3 month old babies can sleep 6 or 7 hours at a time. At 4 or 5 months, babies can sleep for 7 or 8 hours in one stretch. Of course the time they sleep for can be effected by all kinds of things and babies can wake due to teething, illness or hitting developmental milestones but overall they should be waking less at night. 

As babies get older, it can be helpful to start thinking about a bedtime routine. Take away the stimulating toys.  Some parents like bathtime, bathing babies, rocking them, singing lullabies and may look at pictures or books. A soothing toy may also be a part of settling baby ready for sleep.  It's a good idea to put babies in the crib when they're drowsy so they can soothe themselves off to sleep on their own.

There are 10 different songs / lullabies which you can switch through and choose the one you and baby like the best!

Best Toys for 9 Month Old Babies

What are the best toys for a 9 month old baby?

As their handling skills get better babies will love nesting the cups and then trying to stack them. It won't be long before they are building their own towers to knock down. My son is now 2 1/2 and he still builds towers with his stacking cups.

They are great for teaching colors. They are also a great toy for taking out and about as you can just nest the cups together and pop them in your bag.

Every baby should have a set of stacking/nesting cups/buckets. Highly recommended.

Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes

 

Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes is a great toy to teach about cause and effect and develop an appreciation for music and to keep babies entertained when you're out and about.

It's like an MP3 player for babies. It's easy for 9 month old babies to handle and hold the toy. It has big chunky buttons that baby can press to play music and teach them about cause and effect. It plays baby versions of classical music including Mozart, Vivaldi, Chopin and Rossini.

It's small and lightweight so can just be popped in a bag ready to entertain baby at friend's houses or restaurant. It also makes a great travel toy to keep babies occupied and entertained on long journeys.

Baby Piano

 

A baby piano is another top toy.

This toy has four modes to play.

Play the piano notes or listen to animal sounds and learn songs and phrases. It introduces the alphabet, colors, shapes, counting, and more.

There piano also has colorful lights that "dance" along to the beat.

​Music Piano Keyboard Dance Floor Mat

 

This is a perfect toy for a baby who's on the move.

Babies love pressing down on the mat to activate different sounds.

There are 8 unique instrument sounds including piano, violin, accordion, horn, xylophone, oboe, guitar, flute and 9 black keys with corresponding music tones.

Balls - Vtech roll and discover

 

Balls are another fun toy for babies. Roll them to encourage babies to stretch after them, move and crawl. Roll them to baby and encourage them to roll them back.

The Vtech roll and discover ball is a great ball for 9 month old babies.

It features a motion sensor that triggers sounds and phrases.
And there's also big star shaped button that introduces numbers and animals

9 month old babies will love rolling it, throwing it and just put it out of their reach so they have to think about how to move to get it. It's a good learning to crawl toy which makes noise as it is tossed and rolled around.

The plush ball has soft textures and tags that are interesting for baby and help with tactile development. It also features entertaining characters and bright bold colors to attract baby's attention.

turtle ball pit

 

This is an awesome ball pit for a 9 month old baby.

It comes with 60 plastic balls, that babies will love sitting in, grabbing, rolling and tossing.

The turtle which the balls are in, can easily be zipped up to give even more opportunities to play.

On the outside of the turtle are peek-a-boo holes which babies can push balls through or pull balls out.

There are also crinkling feet, a squeaking button, a textured ring, a mirror, silky fabric tags, and an attached soft ball rattle for babies to explore too.

Vtech Sit to Stand Walker

 

This toy has lots of activities for sitting babies and can be used as a great push along toy when babies are ready.

The walker has a detachable activity centre. For young babies, the activity centre can be taken off the walker and laid on the floor for baby to play with. The activity centre has lots of developmental and educational activities for babies of all ages. They include 5 piano keys that make music, a play phone, spinners, shape sorters and lots more. It also plays lots of music (over 70 songs) to engage babies and keep them entertained.

The second part of the toy is obviously the walker. Babies  love pushing the toy around to help them get started with their walking.

Classic Toys - Shapesorter and Rings

 

Sometimes it's the classic toys which are the best and you certainly can't go wrong with toys that have stood the test of time. Parents may even be able to remember these toys from their own childhood.

The shapesorter is a great toys for 9 month old babies. At first babies will just enjoy handling the blocks and putting them in and out of the bucket by lifting the top off. But as they get older theylearn how to put the shapes in the right hole. It's also great for teaching them the names of the shapes and colors too. You can use the blocks to stack little towers and knock the down as well.

The rings are great for young babies to explore with their hands but probably mostly their mouths. 9 month olds will enjoy banging the rings together. As they get older they learn to put the rings onto the ring holder. This will help them develop their fine motor skills and hand and eye co-ordination.

What I really like about both toys is that they will grow with your baby. My boys still loved shapesorters at almost 3 years old so they have the potential to last quite a while.

Little Tikes Activity Garden Baby Playset

Push the little men down and they will pop out, which is lots of fun. Great for young kids to watch and have a go at themselves as they get older.

Enjoy color matching the little men in their slots which is great for learning colors as well. It's also good for practising counting.

What To Buy a 9 month old baby?

Here are the kind of toys 9 month old babies like according to their development:

Toys that make sounds
9 month old babies also love "noisy" toys which use simple language, nursery rhymes and other sounds to start encouraging baby to make noise and work towards saying their first words. Babies of this age may be starting to understand their first words and phrases so these toys with simple words, phrases and songs can help this part of the development.

Toys that teach cause and effect.
There are lots of toys available for this group where something happens when they press a button or do another action. Activity tables, musical keyboard, baby laptops and other such toys are fascinating for this age group.

Toys that give opportunity for movement
9 month old babies are super eager to start moving around so toys that encourage movement are great. Crawl balls and first walker are some top picks.

Toys that develop fine motor skills
9 month olds are also developing their fine motor skills. They now have developed their pincer grasp so they can pick up smaller objects. Their hands are also working together as their co-ordianation improves. This will mean they will be trying to work everything out with their little hands. Can they push this object through this hole (in a shape sorter) ? Does stacking cup fit inside this one? Can they press this button with this finger? Toys that give babies the opportunity to work on their fine motor skills are perfect for this age.
