Guest Post from the Lovely Victoria at One Sharp Mama









Victoria is a blogger over at One Sharp Mama. During the week, her Monday thru Friday, is being a Sonographer at a local outpatient radiology office. She has a fairy tale husband and is a mother to a beautiful young daughter. She loves sharing her stories on parenting, infertility, organization and some favorite recipes. If you enjoy reading this post on Top Toys for a 7 month old, make sure to check out the rest of her posts over at One Sharp Mama. Victoria just wanted to thank Elyssia for this opportunity to share some fun information with her readers. Expanding friends outside of the United States has also been quite exciting.  

Top 6 Toys for your 7 month old

With all the toys out there that available in just about every store, it's hard to decide what toys your child would actually want to play with. I will say that our daughter loves simple things like Tupperware from the kitchen or a plastic spatula to chew on. She's simple but these toys listed below have been some of her favorites. These toys have been great for many different developmental aspects for her too. These also help her to enjoy playing on her own. So, without further ado let's get to the toy list!

Disney Baby Finding Nemo Sea of Activities Jumper

One of her favorites recently has been her Nemo Jumper. She has been bouncing like crazy and giggling up a storm. She's burning her little calories from her crazy formula and her pureed foods. She's building up her leg strength and stamina. This jumper has activities in all 360 degrees. She tries to chew on each play piece. The Dory Fish figurine has been her favorite thing to munch on recently. Some of the figures make noise which excites her and gets her clapping too. All of the activities and the ability to bounce around and be on her feet at her own leisure is helping our daughter learn to play on her own and not have to have someone with her all the time. Every little needs a fun jumper. Grab one from US Amazon here. If you're reading in the UK- use this link for Amazon

Baby Trend Walker

We bought Caroline a Baby Trend walker. She now runs around the house through the kitchen and dining room like it has always been her territory and she knows every area like it's the back of her hand. The walker has a little tray where she can keep her toys and play with them on. It comes with little toys attached to it as well. These are great for children to increase their dexterity and if they're teething like our sweet girl, they're great for chomping on too. She is very mobile in her walker and it is definitely teaching her the skills for balancing and walking around. She is a professional at turning that thing around and chasing after you too. She can maneuver around kitchen tables and chairs like a race car driver. The only downfall is those walkers hurt like a bear when they run over or into your toes. Obviously, walkers are only good to use in areas where steps are not available. The neat thing about this walker is the toy bar is removable. If your little one isn't a fan of the toys or the toys need to be cleaned, the bar is easily removed.

Nuby Pur Ice Bite Soother Ring Teether

As I am sure you can tell, our girl is teething. She puts anything and everything into her mouth. She absolutely adores her teething ring. These things have been around forever. They go in the freezer and feel amazing on her gums. She loves holding it and feeling like she is in control of it. She loves to chew on this ring for as long as her little fingers can stand the freezing part of the ring. She will naw on the ring so long that her little fingers start to turn red from the cold and I have to take it away. This doesn't always make her the happy baby, but, at least her gums are numb. She will get over losing the ring in no time and appreciate the ability to use her fingers quickly. To help those teething littles, get one, or two of these bad boys off of the US Amazon here. The UK Amazon has a similar
one that you can snag here.

Fisher - Price Musical Lion Walker

So, we have this little Lion walker toy. It has been great for the last month or two and will continue to be used over the next couple months. It has fun music and a few toys that the children can play with sliding things back and forth or forward and backward. It is a toy that as they learn to sit up, they can sit in front of and play with. Now, as Caroline is learning to stand while holding on the objects, it's perfect. As she tries to learn to walk, it will be great for then too. She loves the music it plays as she pushes it. It was easy to put together too. Yay for the little things in Parenthood :) You can snag yours from The US Amazon here and if you're in the UK- we have a similar toy that would help your child
learn and have with too. Check it out on the UK Amazon here.
 

Fisher - Price Brilliant Basics Baby's First Blocks

star shape toy, first shapes, color shapes, baby first shape toytoy shape, baby first block, first toy, best toy for 7 month old, bucket head This toy has the bucket and lid with the shapes cut out of it. The shapes are different colors and fit into those holes in the lid. Whatever shape she picks up, I always tell her the shape and the color of the item. I know she might not understand but, I want to get myself in the habit of teaching her those things. When the lid is on the bucket, she tries to put the shapes in. It doesn't always work out but, she tries. As she gets older, I am sure it will become more natural for her to be able to put the shapes in the correct cut outs. This will help her dexterity tremendously. For now, she likes to play with the shapes and lid. She loves wearing the bucket as a hat too. Whatever makes her happy, works for me. It's a teaching as she grows kind of toy. Every baby needs this classic toy, grabs yours from US Amazon here and the UK Amazon here.

Infantino Grow with Me Activity Gym and Ball Pit

So this is a very diverse toy. We have used it since she was just a few months old. This toy changes and grows with them as they age. At first it is a play mat with the toys they can look at on their backs and eventually be able to kick and reach for. As they get older, they can sit up and play with those toys. But now our daughter uses it as a ball pit. The sides can come up and create a contained area for the child to sit in and the balls to be put in. We work on colors as she picks the different ones up. If you want to put the balls away, you can put them in the turtle head storage area. If you're interested in grabbing one of these guys, check them out on the US Amazon here and the UK Amazon here. infantino mat, grow with me, toy for 7 month old, best toy

  1. Great list. Our 18 month old outgrew the jumper seat recently. We used to sit her in there even after she could walk while she was watching a movie. The musical toy is the ultimate. She still plays with that one now, loves dancing to it.
