Infantino Activity Triangle

infantino activity triangle review - simple baby toys

The Infantino Activity Triangle is tons of noiseless fun!  Small colorful tabs are easy to spin; one even has a sweet puppy face. With micro sized balls inside plastic tubes making soft rattling noises, beads to click and a few wheels to spin there is something on every side to hold interest.

My son adored this toy from 5 – 9 months and it still is making an occasional appearance in his toy rotation at 10.5 months with success.  Definitely 5 or more minutes of fun!

Three Toys For A 9 Month Old Under $10

Truth be told, my husband and I didn’t buy our son any gifts for his first Christmas. Nope, not one. We decided to let him bask in the all of the toys he received from friends and family. It was more than enough and next year we will work on a tradition of giving gifts, as he understands the meaning more.

After the wrapping paper settled, a few gifts stood out as favorites to our 9 month old. My criteria for favorites: Toys that hold at least 5 minutes of attention and are interesting multiple times per day. It doesn’t hurt that these three favorites are under $10 each.

(featured above) This sweet toy is perfect for tiny hands.  My son quickly was drawn to the three flaps, moving them up and down repeatedly while intrigued with the flashing musical note.  There are two levels of volume (thank goodness) and I did not find the tune bothersome at all.  So far it’s been an amazing toy for car rides!

I adore toys that are multi-purpose.  Not only does my son love these little animals during bath time, but I’ve been holidng one near the changing table to keep his hands busy.  At 9 months, he loves to mouth everything and there is something about the shapes of these little guys that keep him interested.

There is something about flaps the click and clack, that mesmerize little ones.  This lightweight toy has some other baby favorite features including knotted strings, beads, a mirror and squeaker.  Our son is enamored and I enjoy sitting with him counting 1, 2, 3 for a bit of learning time as well.

Do you have any favorites for 9 month olds?  Comment below, I’d love to know!

Sensory Balls

(C) simple baby blog

As a new mom, I do plenty of reading. Somewhere in the middle of the night, I read that sensory balls were great for children, so I bought the Infantino Textured Multi Ball Set.

At this point C is only interested in putting them in his mouth. But it does offer five minutes of fun as I let him explore (a.k.a. throw them on the floor and I pick them up) while sitting in his walker.

I did read they are good for gross motor skill development so I will keep trying!  At this point they are good for 5 minutes of fun.
