Toys for Babies age 5 Months

At 5 months old a baby’s coordination really starts to improve, and any toy that they can bang is usually a good bet. Drums are especially good – but any toy that responds to being hit by this age baby is perfect! They also love being placed in a floor bouncer that reacts to their kicking and arm waving movements.

Recommended toys for babies

Products that help to develop a sense of self are also very good. By 5 months old, babies will smile at other babies - especially the one that looks back at them from the mirror! You may also like to consider introducing more musical toys, particularly hand-held ones that help with coordination and dexterity.
