Fresh Tips - Baby Toy Guide: Updated Classics

Baby Toy Guide: Updated Classics

When you’re buying gifts for new babies, it’s best to stick to the classics. That doesn’t mean you have to buy the same old boring presents! These updates of traditional baby gifts will get you oohs and aahs at the baby shower.

Old: Silver Spoon

New: This sterling silver, freezer-safe rattle doubles as a teether and can graduate to keepsake status once all baby’s teeth are in.

Old: Alphabet Blocks

New: These handcrafted organic wooden alphabet blocks are pretty enough to serve as nursery decorations until baby’s old enough to stack them. Buy a full alphabet’s worth, or just enough to spell baby’s name.

Old: Teddy Bear

New: It’s not enough just to be cuddly and adorable anymore! The Sleep Sheep soothes baby to sleep with four gentle sounds. Other toys in the line project stars on the ceiling, play music, or even calm crying with aromatherapy.

Old: Teething Ring

New: French teether Sophie the Giraffe is beloved by babies and parents, and is cute enough for a shower gift. Her new friends Chan, Pie, and Gnon promise to provide the same satisfaction for teethers everywhere.
