Re: What is/was your 6mth old's favorite toy?

Ok, the poor peoples toys:

Wooden spoons I had bought at goodwill, complete w/ a set of plastic nesting mixing bowls.

Juice jugs filled w/ rice, pecans, dried beans, water, etc. I used the 48oz size when he was younger.

Fill old perscription bottles with the same things and cover them in duct tape. (I wanted them sealed, but I also didn't want him to associate pill bottles w/ toys)

Take a wooden spool and tack a 3ft ribbon on it. Roll it out and pull it back in. I got a bag of spools from goodwill and the ribbon from Michaels discount bin.

Hats made from newspaper - he got a new one every day.

And he loved all of this MUCH more than the electronic peices of plastic my family kept buying him. And even at 15 months, these are some of his favorites still.

Re: What is/was your 6mth old's favorite toy?

Thanks for all the tips!

The wash cloth is already a hit! I am aalways sooooo tempted to buy dd a new toy everytime i go to the store, but she is already 6mths old and already has 2 boxes full! And most of them don't get played with! I think that i am going to start getting rid of them already, and jsut deep w/ the basics. What toys could your dc not live w/out? I think i will get her one of those knot dolls, and then just some basic stacker wooden toys, and a few rattles, anything else??

I second the Jumperoo, i wouldn't be able to eat lunch if it wasn't for that wonderfull thing!

The tags on stuffed animals. I almost bought one of those tag blankets but she is 9 months now and has moved on to a toy train...OH! She also loved (and still loves) a set of plastic measuring spoons on a ring that keeps them together. I gave them to her once while making dinner and she loved them so much that I had to buy myself a new set. LOL

Re: What is/was your 6mth old's favorite toy?

I am a big fan of Haba toys. They make a huge assortment of wooden rattles and stroller toys that are extremely well made and cute! DD's favorite is a wooden ring with some wooden flowers attached to them. The flowers have bells or little mirrors and it keeps her happy for... well, she's never really gotten sick of it.

The nice thing about wooden toys is that they're classic and long-lasting. These will hold up through every kid and maybe their kids too.

paper
a necklace
an easter toy egg
the easter bendable bunny was his favorite
my hair
his brothers cars
cell phone
keys
a pen or marker with cap on
