We've noticed that
even the youngest infant loves to have his or her own toy. In searching for great infant toys, we were reminded of these wooden classics, by Haba
. Natural, safe, sturdy and beautiful; these maple wood grasping toys are hard to resist.
The Haba Triangle
, $7.95. We’ve seen this given at many a baby shower, and it’s not hard to see why. Two multi-colored triangles are intertwined and held together with a red fabric rubber band, giving children a rattle that’s more active than the usual rattle. Recommended for ages 6 months and up.
Haba's Scalari, $10.95, is a twisty, turny multi-colored fish with a semi-circle tail for easy grasping.
The ridges and bumps of the scales on the fish give children an interesting tactile experience and make some nice clacking sounds. Appropriate for ages 6 months and up.
Finally, there's Haba's Ballino
, $8.95, a 3" ball that infants can grab and shake. What we like about this, however, is they'll enjoy watching it roll; roll it to them, roll it away from them – they’ll be interested by the movement.
For ages 6 months and up.
