It\u2019s a simple toy, there's no doubt about it. But when it comes to entertaining six- to 12-month-old babies, it\u2019s a classic. At six months, your baby won't notice the difference between the \u00a32.75 set from IKEA<\/a> or a pricier one from John Lewis, so it\u2019s really down to you to decide which one you\u2019d like to be stacking and re-stacking.<\/p>

Look out for bright colours and lightweight designs so that little hands can pick them up easily. These toys tend to be plastic, so you might want to double-check that they\u2019re BPA-free too.<\/p>

\u201cHide and squeak eggs<\/a> are by far the best toy we have ever owned. They have been played with from the first moment my daughter could grip something, and my four-year-old still sometimes plays with them now. They have been everywhere with us. They pack up neatly so a great travel toy too. This is the toy I buy for every friend who has a first baby.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

\u201cYes! Hide and squeak eggs! How could I not mention these? My first daughter had them as a present way back and initially I thought 'Hmm not sure about these', but now my third is playing with those original eggs and are usually the first thing she pulls out of the toy box.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

\u201cI'd definitely recommend squeaky eggs. I didn't realise my daughter loved them until she was 18 months old and stupidly thought she would outgrow them too quickly. She's three now and still makes a beeline for them at playgroup.\u201d<\/em><\/p>","value":"

Baby walkers or brick trolleys are great for babies who haven\u2019t quite mastered the art of walking and lots of fun for toddlers as well. Look out for one that\u2019s sturdy and easy to clean. If it plays sounds or noises, check that it has an 'off' switch, just in case\u2026.<\/p>

\u201cMy son is 12 months and has loved his VTech walker<\/a> since he was four months. It does make noise but you can switch it off and he doesn't seem to mind! He loves pushing it around \u2013 it means he can walk earlier, i.e before he learns to do it unaided. We even take it to the park so he can run around pushing it and it knackers him out nicely.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

\u201cA push-along wooden brick trolley<\/a> is a must \u2013 we bought one for our son's first birthday and he still plays with it four years later.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

\u201cWe had a simple wooden trolley-type walker. Never had a problem with tipping and they used it for ages after they were walking confidently. Even at five and six it was used as a doll's pram and a shopping trolley.\u201d<\/em><\/p>","value":"

Jumperoos or walking activity centres can be very handy when you have more than one child or you just need five minutes to have a cup of tea.<\/p>

Some can be a little pricey, so it\u2019s worth trying one out at a friend's house or buying one secondhand if you\u2019re not sure whether or not your child will enjoy it.<\/p>

\u201cThe toy my daughter plays with the most right now is a large cardboard box. I've cut in a door shape on two sides and several small holes in the other sides.

The best thing is, we have about 15 more boxes in the cellar so, when it gets damaged, another one gets brought out.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

Farmyard animals are a great way to start introducing your baby to simple animal sounds and imaginative play. There are a host of options to choose from, from the simple wooden sets to more lifelike plastic models.<\/p>

The wooden ones look lovely, but the plastic animals have the added benefit of being bathtime-friendly which can be handy if your child develops a particular attachment to them.<\/p>

What Mumsnet users say:<\/strong><\/p>

\u201cMy son has two farms \u2013 both plastic. One is from John Lewis that acts as a carry case as well. It opens up and has animals and a tractor, etc. The other one is from Fisher-Price. He loves both of them and plays with them all the time.\u201d<\/em><\/p>

\u201cI second the wooden animals idea \u2013 the wooden Holztiger animals<\/a> are lovely. Both my children still enjoy playing with them at nearly three and seven!\u201d<\/em><\/p>

\u201cWe have a mad hotchpotch of realistic-looking zoo and farm animals, including Duplo animals<\/a> and the odd Playmobil creature. We make massive zoos out of LEGO and shoe boxes. Both my boys (even the big old 10-year-old) will still play quite happily like this.\u201d<\/em><\/p>","value":"

在6个月大的时候,你的宝宝很可能会开始寻找更多的东西来玩,你可能会发现你需要一点启发,让他们在睡眠、吃饭、改变、重复的无休止循环中有事可做。

广告

很难继续思考新的活动和游戏与宝宝一起玩,所以一些简单的玩具可以真正派上用场。

但没必要花几百英镑买高科技玩具(你的宝宝最想玩的就是你),但当你的宝宝开始探索周围的世界时,有一些东西可以帮助你是有帮助的。

我们搜索了论坛,分析了成千上万的对话,为你带来了这份由父母测试的最好的婴儿玩具清单。

1.叠杯

费雪价格堆叠杯

这是个简单的玩具,这是毫无疑问的。但对于6到12个月大的婴儿来说,这是一个经典。六个月大的时候,你的宝宝不会注意到宜家一套2.75英镑或者来自John Lewis的奖金,所以它真的是为了决定你想要堆叠和重新堆叠的那个。

留意明亮的色彩和轻量级设计,使小手可以轻松挑选。这些玩具往往是塑料,所以你可能想仔细检查他们是否没有BPA。

Mumsnet用户说:

“堆叠杯太棒了六个月!”

“再次堆叠杯子 - 我们有一套来自宜家的明亮和便宜的

2.董事会的书

宝宝的书

在这个发展阶段,简单的板书或布书都是很好的选择。挑选那些颜色对比鲜明,纹理多样的,最重要的是,是可擦拭的!

Mumsnet用户说:

“我喜欢那些布料的书,在每一页上都有感觉。好事是他们非常便宜且易于清洁!“

“我们最喜欢的是脸:宝宝触摸第一焦点婴儿触摸:偷看”。

“举起的襟翼书在那个年龄(例如亲爱的动物园地点在哪里?哦亲爱的)。”

3.Tomy Toomies Hide and Squeak Eggs

隐藏和吱吱作响

不要被他们稍微平凡的外表所迷惑。来自Tomy的这些聪明的小创作将为婴儿和幼儿提供几个小时的娱乐。

Mumsnet用户说:

把鸡蛋藏起来并吱吱叫迄今为止我们拥有的最好的玩具。他们从我女儿可以抓住一些东西的第一刻起来,我的四岁的孩子现在仍然与他们一起玩。他们到处都是我们的。他们整齐地包装了一个伟大的旅行玩具。这是我为拥有第一个宝宝的每个朋友买的玩具。“

“是啊!把鸡蛋藏起来并吱吱叫!我怎么能不提这些呢?我的第一个女儿把它们作为礼物送给了她,一开始我想‘嗯,不太确定’,但现在我的第三个女儿正在玩那些原始的鸡蛋,这通常是她从玩具盒里拿出的第一件东西。”

“我绝对推荐吱吱作响的鸡蛋。直到我女儿18个月大的时候,我才意识到她很爱吃,她愚蠢地认为她很快就会吃不下去了。现在她已经三岁了,但在游戏小组里她还是会径直走向他们。”

4.高尔特弹出式的人

高尔特Pop Up People

这些小木制创作为小婴儿和幼儿提供了几个小时的笑声,并且嗯,他们也对成年人来说实际上非常有趣。

Mumsnet用户说:

“这些人只是一根小杆子,长着脸,但这个玩具非常吸引人,没有明显的原因。甚至大一点的孩子和成年人也会被它吸引。”

“快闪人”是小木块,上面有四个不同颜色的人。底部有一种弹簧,可以让它们发出响声——很简单,但很有趣。”

5.婴儿学步车和砖头手推车

Vtech婴儿学步车和Brick Trolley

婴儿学步车或砖头手推车对那些还没有掌握走路艺术的婴儿来说很好,对学步的孩子来说也很有趣。要挑一个结实又容易清洗的。如果它播放声音或噪音,检查它是否有“关闭”开关,以防万一....

Mumsnet用户说:

“我儿子12个月大了,他很爱他的儿子伟易达集团沃克因为他四个月。它确实产生了噪音,但你可以关闭它,他似乎并不介意!他喜欢推动它 - 这意味着他可以早些时候走路,即他在学会毫无援助之后。我们甚至把它带到公园,所以他可以跑来跑去,它很好地嘲笑他。“

“推进木砖电车它是我们儿子一岁生日时买的,可四年过去了,他还在玩。”

“我们有一个简单的木制手推车式步行器。给小费从来没有问题,而且在他们自信地走完步后,他们会用很长时间。甚至在五六岁的时候,它就被用作洋娃娃婴儿车和购物手推车。”

6.Jumperoo

费舍尔价格保镖

当你有超过一个孩子或者你只需要五分钟来喝杯茶的时候,跳绳或步行活动中心是非常方便的。

有些可能有点贵,所以如果你不确定你的孩子是否会喜欢,你可以在朋友家试用一个或买一个二手的。

Mumsnet用户说:

“我们的女儿从大约三个半月内爱她的jumperoo,当她可以抓住她的脑袋。它给了我时间坐下来喝杯杯,似乎有助于加强她的腿和背部。这是我们花的最好的宝贝钱!“

“一个门保镖当我的手臂疼痛时,六个月是救生员。“

“门卫和静坐活动站对我们很有用。”

7.一个纸箱

男孩在纸板箱里

如果你对孩子众多的选择感到有点不知所措,那么就让它成为一个小小的提醒:如果你不愿意,你真的不需要在高端玩具上花钱。

即使你花了几百美元买了最贵的婴儿保镖,你可能仍然会发现你的孩子对盒子比对玩具更感兴趣。趁它还在,赶紧接受它吧,因为不久之后他们就会求着你要PlayStation和最新的iPhone了。

Mumsnet用户说:

“我的女儿现在玩的玩具现在是一个大纸箱。我在两侧的一个门形状和另一侧的几个小孔切割。它有一个垫子在里面和一个敞开的顶部。在过去的四个月里,她每天至少花了一个小时。这对Peekaboo或发布游戏非常棒。最好的是,我们在地窖里有大约15个盒子,所以,当它受损时,另一个被带出来。“

“别忘了盒子、包装纸和丝带。给六个月大的婴儿最好的礼物。”

8.塑料瓶用干豆和随机家用物体

有塑料瓶的男婴

如果你没有地方放纸板箱,一盒纸巾、婴儿湿巾或装满干豆子的塑料瓶也可以提供数小时的娱乐。

Mumsnet用户说:

“她现在10个月大了。她最喜欢的玩具是一个装着干扁豆的空水瓶、一包婴儿湿巾、我的工作证和一个空的隐形眼镜护理液瓶子!”

“我女儿最喜欢的玩具之一是装着干意面和大米的芬达小瓶。她喜欢看着米饭从一边掉到另一边,面条发出很大的声音。如果你想更有创意,你可以用食用色素给米饭染色,让它变得五彩缤纷。”

“我8个月大的女儿最喜欢的东西是一个没电的遥控器。今天她大部分时间都在玩普里马克购物袋。”

9.乐器

孩子木琴

更传统的玩具。如果你能承受球拍,一个简单的,打击乐器可以是一个有趣的玩具,为孩子们在这个发展阶段。

Mumsnet用户说:

“我女儿唯一喜欢的电子玩具是Elc木琴,它扮演预先编程的曲调,她也喜欢跳舞。“

“我10个月大的宝宝现在最喜欢最基本的玩具——现在她能起床走动了,玩具不是她的兴趣所在。但是一些乐器手鼓而且沙球可能会很好玩。”

10.堆叠和倒桶

跳过跳栈和倒桶

堆栈和倾倒桶在各种各样的场景中都很有趣 - 从晚上到夏天的户外游戏。

Mumsnet用户说:

“我女儿在那个年龄最喜欢的玩具,现在她还在玩,就是费雪-普莱斯桶。对于第一次蹒跚学步的人来说,它们是理想的尺寸。她花了好几个小时和它们在花园里走来走去,现在她用它们洗澡。”

11.构建块

一、二挤块

无可争议的童年游戏时间。没有什么比建造塔楼的简单乐趣,并在完成后立即敲击它们。

Mumsnet用户说了什么

“One Two Squeeze block对小孩子来说很好。它们长出了很棒的牙齿,随着年龄的增长,它们可以喜欢把牙齿堆起来,然后把它们推倒,或者看着父母这样做。”

“搭积木——我儿子六岁了,还在玩积木。我们有几种不同的类型,包括木制字母和一些更大的Janod纸板多维数据集”。

12.形状分类器

费舍尔价格蜗牛苍白

形状分拣机是开发机动技能和手眼协调的好方法。从传统的木箱设计中可以购买很多选择,以便有趣的鲜艳的动物形状。

Mumsnet用户说:

“6个月后,形状分类器是完美的。”

“这个宜家形状分类器是我女儿的最爱作为宝宝。“

13.娃娃和折叠式婴儿车

玩具车

娃娃和童车是孩子们的好玩具,也是鼓励孩子们在年轻时进行富有想象力的游戏的好方法。除了洋娃娃,婴儿车还可以装其他各种东西,但要找一个有结实轮子和折叠功能的,这样你就可以轻松地把它储存起来。

Mumsnet用户说:

“我一直很喜欢小安娜贝尔。它仍然是他们六岁和八岁时最喜欢的玩具之一。他们有银色十字婴儿车,主要是安娜贝尔婴儿饰品。”

“再给安娜贝尔投一票,她是最好的娃娃。”

“我同意娃娃的童车。确保你买的是真正便宜的那种折叠小的,而不是那种唱歌跳舞的三轮车。”

14.叠加环

费雪价格堆积环

叠环是另一种简单的玩具,有助于发展手眼协调能力,并向婴儿介绍相对大小的概念,因为他们学习从大到小的分类和叠环。

这是一个非常流行的概念,有多种风格和设计。妈妈网论坛上的一致意见是避免那些有声音的戒指——在这种情况下,老式戒指是最好的。

15.农场上的动物

农场玩具组

农场里的动物是一个很好的方式,开始介绍你的孩子简单的动物声音和富有想象力的游戏。有很多选择,从简单的木制布景到更逼真的塑料模型。

木制的看起来很可爱,但塑料动物的额外福利是浴室友好的益处,如果您的孩子向他们发展特定附件,可以方便。

Mumsnet用户说:

“我儿子有两个农场,都是塑料的。一个来自John Lewis,也可以作为手提箱。它是开放的,有动物和拖拉机等。另一个是费雪公司的。他爱他们两个,总是和他们一起玩。”

“我赞成木制动物的想法木质霍尔兹泰格动物很可爱。我的孩子们仍然喜欢与他们一起玩近三岁!“

“我们有一大堆看起来很逼真的动物园和农场动物,包括得宝动物还有古怪的Playmobil生物。我们用乐高和鞋盒做了大量的动物园。我的两个孩子(即使是10岁的大孩子)仍然会像这样玩得很开心。”
