G’day, Aussie Mums!

Get ready to embark on the thrilling adventure of babyhood, where each gurgle and grin unveils a world of wonders. If your little one is between the ages of 3 to 6 months, you’re in for a treat – this is the phase where they’re like tiny sponges, soaking up knowledge faster than you can say “nappy change.” So, let’s dive into the magic of baby development and explore some toys that will make these months even more memorable.

Soft and Squishy Sensory Blocks

Babies at this age are all about discovery, and the sensory blocks are their perfect companions. With a kaleidoscope of colors, various textures, and that oh-so-satisfying squish, these blocks stimulate your bub’s senses and set the stage for tactile triumphs. It’s like a baby-friendly art installation, minus the pretentious art critics.

Bonus: Here’s a Soft Sensory Play Bundle. It has a lot of sensory toys for your baby to play with.

Musical Marvels (Noisy toys)

 Introduce your little one to the world of music and noise with these toys.

There are two types of noisy toys, battery-operated and toys with no batteries.

Be careful when choosing battery-operated toys. These toys are usually close-ended and are purely for entertaining your little humans and add nothing or very little to their learning.

Children’s early months and years are when our little ones’ creativity is at an all-time high. We want to develop this creativity by giving them a chance to explore their world and different ways of doing and being. So, we need to be picky what battery-operated toys we are introducing to our babies and how long we are letting them engage with it.

The VTech Turn and Learn Driver and Fisher and Price Piano Gym or similar toys are great battery-operated toys that not only provide entertainment (and a moment of alone time for parents, hehe) but will also help develop your little ones’ fine motor and cognitive skills. 

I have quite a few recommendations for noisy toys without batteries. The Pound and Tap Bench XylophoneFoot Finder & Wrist Rattle SetBaby Musical InstrumentsVTech See-Touch-Hear Sloth BallMusical Wobbler Penguin, and Musical Wobbler Penguin are all great options.

Be careful when you give these toys to your babies. They might just compose their first musical masterpiece while you’re not looking! 😉 

    Grasp the Goodies

    If you have already bought the blocks bundle I mentioned before, you’ll already have this one so you can skip it.

    At 3 to 6 months, your bub is gearing up to master the art of grabbing things. The 9-piece Sassy Stacking Rings are not only excellent for teething but also perfect for developing those fine motor skills. It’s like a tiny workout for those cute little fingers.

    The Fisher-Price Rock-a-Stack is a much more affordable option. The size of the rings makes it easier for your little one to hold the rings. 

    You can help your bub’s language development by describing the colours and what you are doing with the rings.

    “Stack the rings.”

    “Ooo, big ring! Little ring.”

    “Fell down.” 

    Mirror, Mirror on the Floor

    Tummy time is a crucial phase, mirrors can add a touch of magic to it. Baby-safe mirrors encourage self-discovery and strengthens babys’ mini muscles. Plus, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a good baby selfie?

    The Looky mirror has wheels which encourage baby to try to move towards it when it rolls away. Your little human can change the angle of the mirror and see themselves and the world around them from different perspectives.

    The SYNARRY Tummy Time Pillow with a Mirror is also a good one. It adds a bit of noisy play to the mix. It has a crinckley material, it’s teether and the little felt animals.

      Animal Plush Adventures: The Snuggle Safari Soft Toys

          Every child has to have a Sensory Plush Activity Toy. The Amazon store Skip Hop have has a lot of different styles.

          These cuddly companions not only provide comfort but also spark the imagination. Soon, you might find your bub having deep conversations with their lion BFF. It’s basically the cutest wildlife documentary ever.

          Most of the toys mentioned here can even be enjoyed by your baby after 6 months of age. You can check out my list for the “Best Toys to Buy for Your 6 to 12 Months Old Baby in Australia” list.

          In short, dear Aussie Mums, these toys are not just playthings – they’re building blocks for your baby’s development. As they navigate this phase of wonder and wobble, these toys will be their trusted allies. So, let the giggles, grasps, and grins commence! Happy parenting, mates!
