  • I love some of Playskools new toys like the Busy Ball Popper. Also, if your child is starting to pull up then an activity table would be good too. I have seen some that grow with the baby. They start out with the baby sitting down and then you can move it up when they are standing and then you can move it up more, for when they are growing. Also, get some really good cloth books and books that the baby can feel the different textures. And how about some soft blocks for baby to stack (and of course chew on). Hope this helps!

  • A music set. Things that make noise. They usually comes with drums and Moroccans. I think that would be fun.

  • I love the Leap Frog toys. Go to and you can search by age range. The Fisher Price toy phone is always a good gift for a baby that age.Fisher-Price Chatter Phone -  Fisher-Price - ToysI don't know your price range but I know the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn Learning Home Playset toy was a big hit from baby to about 3 with my son.

  • Melissa and Doug also has great products. They are a little expensive but they hold up forever. You can get them at Toys R Us. My son loves everything I've bought him by them. At that age the Bird House Shape Sorter was his favorite.
    A ride on toy would be good too. The Chico 4 in 1 ride on is great because she can grow into it. You can also get it at Toys R Us. I hope that helps :) Happy Holidays!!
