Babies love interesting things to look at and once they get to be about 5 months old, they will start to reach for toys. A clip on mobile is a great entertaining option to add to your car seat or stroller. Sometime referred to as a “Toy Arch”, here are some of the most popular ones available.
Babies and toddlers love to look at picture books. They really love to look at pictures of themselves and their families. These photo albums are designed for kids as young as 1 year old and will be sure to entertain. I created a picture album like this with a few baby pics and a few family pics when when our boy was about 1 year old. He loved it then and still likes to look at it years later and talk about the pictures “when he was a little baby”.
