1. Books: best baby toys for 6 month old!
Once upon a time, before Disney and DVDs, characters like Winnie the Pooh and Cinderella could only be found in ‘strange paper devices’ called ‘books’! These ‘books’ are actually the best baby toys for 6 month old . Not light-up whizzing toys. Not bleeping twirling toys. Just plain old books.
You see, 6-month-old babies are curious creatures and love baby food and luxury diapers. They want to learn about everything and books are a fantastic fun way to do it. No nursery is complete without a collection of picture books exploring numbers, colours, and animals. Join a library, hit the bookshops or raid your local charity shop - whatever it takes to open up that world of magic and knowledge for your child.
With so much variety out there, you’re bound to find something your little one will love. Delight your baby with lift the flap nursery rhymes. Or why not add some fun with a set of touch and feel books? Check out ‘That’s not my…” for a great animal series that uses repetition and textures to help your baby learn. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, buy a book with fun sounds. Babies love to push the buttons over and over…and over. Hearing a fire engine say ‘Nee-naw! Nee-naw!” 50 times in a row is just part of being a parent. Suck it up.
'Books’ are actually the best baby toys for 6 month old.
Need the loo? Jumperoo! At this age, your baby will want to be upright most of the time if they’re awake. They want to see what’s going on. These brilliant toys let your baby bounce about surrounded by interactive fun while you finally have a chance to use the toilet, put on a wash, or even have a sneaky cup of tea. Sadly, breaktime comes at a high price. Fisher Price have a great jungle-themed version if you’re happy to splash the cash, or keep an eye out at your local supermarket for a bargain off-brand buy.
Jumperoos let your baby bounce about surrounded by interactive fun while you're busy.
3. Lamaze Toys
By the time your baby is 6 months old you’ve probably heard the word ‘sensory’ so many times that it has lost all meaning, but these plush teddies are wonderful for capturing your child’s interest. They squeak, rustle, crinkle and pop under a colourful layer of textured fabrics. With so many exciting characters to choose from, they’re definitely one of the best baby toys for 6 month old. Freddie Firefly and Captain Calamari in particular deserve a place in the nappy bag for any trips out of the house.

No childhood is complete without a toy ball or two. Even the most basic tennis ball will bring hours of fun-filled spinning, bouncing and rolling to any child, but add some weird textures or fun rattles and you’re bound to send your baby wheeling (pun intended) in amazement. Check out B toys or ELC for some great sets.
