Inside: The best baby toys for ages 6-12 months. These toys are perfect for holiday or Christmas gifts!
Finding really useful holiday gifts for a baby, can be a difficult task!
Developmentally they’re all over the map so even if a toy says its for 3-9 months old, it’s rarely right.
I’ve never seen a 3 month old stacking those rings that look like enlarged fruit loops, (although they do vigorously chew them…)
When your baby hits 6-12 months, they’re ready to explore the world!
They’re crawling, exploring, putting everything in their mouth, (stickers, crumbs on the floor, and once or twice a bug…).
They’re also interested in what the adults in their lives are into, (i.e. your phone!).
The toys that my kids, (and I) loved the most were ones that kept them entertained and enriched their big ol’ brains!
So I created this list of the best baby toys with those developmental milestones in mind as well as including what my kids favorite toys were when they were 6-12 months old.

The Best Baby Toys for Ages 6-12 Months Old
One of the other things I kept in mind was how important it is for toys to last for more than a day.
Seriously there’s nothing more annoying than your baby losing interest in Great Aunt Belinda’s Sophie the Giraffe teething toy and getting asked every other week if your baby is still using it!
These toys can also grow with your baby so if they happen to not be interested now, they probably will be when they get a little older!
