To recap, when choosing a toy for your child keep 3 things in mind:
1. Check the age recommendation by the manufacturer 2. Consider what your child already likes to do and look for a toy that mimics that behavior 3. Choose a toy that not only does the thing your child likes but offers even more! For example, a soft ball WITH a bell or rattle in it, a pull toy that's ALSO a set of blocks or a peek a boo toy that ALSO makes sounds (like a jack in the box!).
