  • Anything that is bold in color, won't fit in his mouth, and is soft enough to not hurt himself if he accidently waves it around and bumps his little head. Have him lay a few feet away and roll a large ball in front of him - great for eye coordination. Different textures are good to explore: cotton, denim, silk, etc. There are many books that are made just for babies. They are cloth and have different textured tabs on the edge of the "pages". Walk around the house and help him touch things, like a plant, the smooth surface of a glass, the bumpy paint on the wall. Mirrors are awesome for little ones.

  • People! Any object can become a toy when Mom is attached to it. Sometimes I find toys can be a little over stimulating, plus you have to worry about the paint and the lead and blah blah blah.

    Mine really loved just sitting in front of a mirror with me or someone and playing with a bear or other small toy and making up stories.

    Fun things are also things that react to them, like light up Fisher Price things that react when touched. My son LOVES the cars that you hit and they screech and peel out. He would giggle for hours over those things.

  • my son is 8mons and he loves the color red, anything thats red, he has to have, and he will play with it for hours. I dont know if all babies do that, or if its just himself, maybe it will be his favorite color? He also likes things that light up, move, and make noise. He likes things he can chew on. We found a teether at kmart the other day, of pooh bear holding a hunny jar, and the hunny jar is what they chew on, and everytime theybite down on it, it vibrates, he loved it, he thinks its funny, but it also helps his gums too. Good Luck, it is hard to find toys that they will play with for more than 5 minutes!
