Some of the most popular infant toys I see walking around town are the ones mentioned below. Lamaze makes a variety of soft, vibrant and developmentally rich infant toys. When my son, Andrew was an infant, we had some of these great toys. They were perfect for attaching to a stroller, car seat, play mat or crib. They were easy to carry in a diaper bag and Andrew always seemed stimulated by these toys. They often have teethers built in so it’s never an issue when the baby puts it in their mouth like most seem to do. The characters are adorable and come in a variety of animals with various textures, sounds and colors. Way to go Lamaze on creating a product that is timeless and that infants will always love!

Lamaze Huey the Hedgehog – Soft and cuddly, Huey the Hedgehog is full of developmental features that are fun and stimulate baby’s senses. Huey’s body features a rainbow of colors, vibrant patterns and multiple textures. He also comes with ribbons, crinkle, and a leaf teether. When linked to a stroller or carrier bar, Huey will playfully dangle in front of baby, making him the perfect take-along toy. MSRP: $14.99

Lamaze Makai the Monkey – Baby will love monkeying around with Makai the Monkey! Full of developmental features that stimulate the senses, the adorable monkey features a colorful body, vibrant patterns, ribbons and a high contrast swinging peek-a-boo banana. Complete with a Lamaze link, Makai is ready for adventure! MSRP: $14.99

    These Lamaze toys are perfect for a newborn to gaze at or an infant to play with or a big sister to entertain her little brother with. I’m always fascinated how they have more than one way to get a baby’s attention-how multi sensory and fantastic. Thanks Late Night Parents for sharing-am now following you on twitter.
