Rattles

One of the simplest toys for a baby is a rattle. They make noise, are colorful and can be thrown far across the room. They double as teethers and can be used to bang on other toys to make music. The rattle is the perfect infant learning toy. Other great learning toys for young ones include toy trains that are appropriately made for small children under 3.

Have fun shopping for your infant. They are only this young once and grow up so fast. It's best to give them the best advantage from day one.
