Toys for Babies age 8 Months

By the time they reach 8 months old, babies are generally exploring everything and benefit greatly from activity toys. These encourage them to make things work and figure things out. At this stage of their development hearing as many sounds as possible is really important – so musical toys that react with music, words, lights or actions are also good.

Recommended toys for babies

Children at this age are also likely to enjoy sorting and building toys, so shape-sorters with easy to handle pieces are perfect. Stacking toys and building blocks are generally also a safe bet. Nothing is more fun than knocking over a carefully built structure!
