Hello, giant people of the world who walk on two feet. My name is Meyer and I’m a baby. I recently started crawling and pulling up and boy, have I discovered a lot of new play options in this multi-roomed wooden box we live in. The toy choices, just to start, are now much more palatable and sophisticated.
I’m pretty sure that 3 weeks of (trying to) independently explore my environment qualifies me as an expert on all things play so I put together a list for you: Here are the top 5 toys of all time.
The downside is that my mom seems to think every single one of these fantastical toys is BAD and that I should instead play with boring things like rattles and stuffed bears that sing creepy songs. Lame-O.
I don’t know what it is about these things that keeps me coming back. Did angels invent this soft, gummy rubber? Because it feels like it fell from heaven. This teething toy also has a really nice side effect that’ll keep you entertained all day. Every time you head towards it, your mommy will scream really loudly and then run over to pick you up. Take a cue from me — works even better than reaching your arms up.
This thing is the one of the most sophisticated toys out there. It’s animated, it walks, runs, makes several loud, sudden, unpredictable noises and does cool things with its teeth. The downside is it’s impossible to get rid of that stinky smell from the manufacturer, but at least it comes with this cool, blue-green bowl that’s extremely handy to grab from any angle.
This is the best swimming pool on the market, hands-down. It’s an in-door pool, for one thing so it’s always fairly warm. If you don’t wanna get all the way in, you can splash your hands in the water and watch it fly everywhere or better yet, tip the pool over and investigate which way the water goes. There’s always lots of interesting things floating in it that you can taste too. I’m gonna go out on a limb and call this both the best baby pool and best sensory toy all in one.
I’ve tried all the pull toys in our house and none are packed with features like this one. The arms have changed colors several times since we got it, which is fun, and best of all, when you really grab hold of one of them and pull it, confetti flies off and lands all over the floor. So festive! Extra features include rocking action, occasional wetness, and your siblings pointing at you and yelling for a grown-up! Excitement abounds!
I’ve been trying to figure this puzzle out for several months and still haven’t come close. Somehow it seems like there are always pieces in there that weren’t there before. Either way, LOADS of fun to pull out and rearrange all over the floor again and again and again. Bonus: very absorbent place to spit up and also comfy for impromptu nap-taking.
So there you have it. The top 5 baby toys of all time. A list for the baby by the baby.
