Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium 
Soft blocks made in bright colours will help baby focus developing eyes while the soft textures will be gentle with clumsy hands. Coloured lights with soothing sounds will stimulate sensory growth and introduce cause and effect relationships.

Bright Starts Having a Ball Bunch of Balls
Textured balls in bold primary colours let babies grab and squeeze while their eyes are still developing. Oversized sets let them gnaw and mouth without worries of a choking hazard.

Fisher-Price Discover ‘n Grow Kick & Play Piano Gym 
Cover all bases with a versatile play mat for tummy time and rolling over. Tethered noisemakers that are just out of reach will help train hand muscles. A plush musical toy with press and play limbs will take baby from rudimentary motor skills to more purposeful cause and effect recognition. Aside from soft comfort they can roll over and sleep on, they’ll learn to interact with a squeezing or pressing action. Little grips will be happy to grab onto noisemakers as hands get stronger and baby can hold onto objects without tethers. Look for rattles with rounded edges and high contrast colours.

Babies begin to relate their toys to everyday objects that mommy and daddy use and respond to requests to help. Encourage fine motor (and helping!) skills with replica kitchen and cleaning toys.

Fine motor skills will get a workout with pushing and pulling, sliding and opening on a multifaceted game cube. Even better is the small footprint to activity ratio.
