If you are looking for gift ideas for a baby or young toddler we have compiled some of the best selling Baby Musical Toys on Amazon in 2017. Obviously it depends on the child’s age but we have tried to include a cross section of toys to suit different age ranges.
When it’s time to buy a toy for a new baby, it’s sometimes very difficult because the toy range is very limited – soft toys that are baby-friendly, things that clip on to baby equipment and toys that are really for mum. But there is a theme that runs through toys for babies of all ages and that is baby musical toys.
Do new babies want musical toys? Well of course they do! First of all, no baby cot is complete without a toy mobile and very often these are musical. Lullabies to sooth babies to sleep accompanied by familiar toys going round and round…what could be better? And there are lots of different baby mobiles to choose from.
Another musical toy for baby are those little toys that go round babies wrists and ankles. They have soft toys attached with bells in, and as babies develop they love grabbing their feet, and these toys perk babies interests in their limbs and feet, and their hands.
Nowadays, there is a focus on tummy-time, when babies are put on their tummies, under supervision, to improve their skills and flexibility, and as preparation for crawling. There are a multitude of baby mats available and lots of them have a musical component. Take a look at the Fisher Price Kick and Play play mat for babies to use either their hands or their feet to pat or kick a keyboard, which both lights up and makes a noise. Nearly all the baby gym play mats have at least one musical toy.
Babies quickly learn to enjoy a bath and this is another time where baby can enjoy musical toys. There are many different musical bath toys depending on babies age. From six months there is “do rae me dolphins” by Tomy. As they get old babies might enjoy musical toy boats, or when they get to about a year, why not give them “bath flutes” which make noise and squirt water too!
It’s not just in the bath that older babies from 6-12 months will enjoy musical toys. Toys that make a sound are always popular. There is the Fisher Price Laugh and Learn toys for instance, with Laugh and Learn Puppy and his Laugh and Learn Piano. Great robust toys that babies will love.
Once baby can sit up, then drums are always a great choice. Patting a drum is a very independent thing to do and babies will love the cause and effect of their own choices. There are a huge array of drums available but the best ones are the ones that give baby lights that flash as well as sounds, giving them the stimulation they require.
As they get a bit older then why not give them a set of musical toys such as Aideal set of toys with lots of things they can rattle, bash and crash with? Along with making a noise they improve manual dexterity and they are a whole lot of fun!
