But - I am not willing to throw in the hat just yet, and break down and buy a playroom full of these types of toys. My question for the parents out there is to identify natural/ safer plastic toys that provide feedback to the child using them. So many of the toys we have are great for building things, sorting, or looking for patterns. But, save for rattles and musical instruments that make noise when he shakes them, they don't give that thrill that the more popular toys do when something exciting happens at the touch of a button.
I certainly am not ready for anything that lights up, but a little noise might be ok (I'm caving in already!)Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Please share your suggestions with Jennifer in the comments below...thanks!
