Its that time of year again – the Holidays! The air is getting crisper, there are jiggle bells in more songs on the radio and the stores are getting busier with shoppers trying to buy the perfect gift for their loved ones.
When it comes to getting the babies in our lives gifts it is not always easy. Whether you are first time parent, uncle or aunt, grandma or grandpa, or you just want to find a toy that your little guy or gal will play with and treasure during those important but all to short baby months I have put together a great list of affordable and fun toys they will love.
As a mom of three – a four year old and 9 month old twins – I have “tested” lots of toys with them and finally I have now created a great list of the toys that both my kids and I loved and still love.
OK, are you ready to check off all the babies 0 to 1 year old from your Christmas list?!?
