Baby Favorites || Small Toys (6 - 12 months)

I am still in disbelief that my baby is turning 1 in less than a month. In honor of Cam's upcoming birthday celebration, I wanted to start a mini series of our 'baby favorites' highlighting some of Cam's (and mommy's) favorite things. This series will run for the next month and I will be posting weekly with different categories of favorites.

This week is all about small toys. Every morning we have playtime in the family room (which has now turned into Cam's playroom). I have 3 baskets with small toys that we keep in our cabinet under the tv for easy access. These toys help keep him busy while I rush to make that first glorious cup of coffee. 

Here is a round up of Cam's favorite small toys (each under $16):

1 || Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Click n Learn Remote - Cam goes straight for our remote when it's in his sight. This one was a no brainer. It has big buttons, lights up and really obnoxious voices that sing and say numbers and such. 

2 || VTech Rhyme and Discover Book - We have a similar sound book made by Fisher Price at our house, but my mom purchased this one to keep at their house and Cam loves it! The 'pages' are thick and plastic so it's easy for him to turn them and the buttons, lights and sounds keep him very entertained. 

3 || Fisher-Price Babys First Blocks and Rock Stack Bundle - This was given to us by Bill's parents and it is one of the most used toys! Camden loves the rings, especially the one on the top that rattles. We also love the blocks and bucket for learning shapes and colors. 

4 |Baby Einstein Roller-pillar Activity Balls - These are a recent find from Target. Camden loves the balls that rattle and the smiley face one lights up when you hit it. 

5 || Oball Grip & Play Sensory Toy - This is the perfect distraction in the high chair. Cam usually plays with this for a bit while I get his food ready. It suctions right to the high chair tray!

6 || Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stack & Roll Cups - These are definitely on heavy demand these days. The cups not only stack, but they also nest in each other. Cam loves to bang these together and drop them on our hardwood floor! This boy loves to make noise!

7 || Baby Einstein Musical Toy- Keys to Discovery Piano - This was actually a gift I added to his Easter basket and has been one of his favorites ever since. The little piano keys play music and also say "1, 2, 3" in english and spanish. It is also a great toy for on the go and in the car. 

8 || Little Tikes Play Triangle - I got this toy for Cam shortly after he started sitting up. I liked that he could sit with it and play. There are so many little gadgets that he can explore. It's also lightweight and rattles when he picks it up. 

There you have it! The first round of Cam's favorites!
