Playtime for littles isn't all about allowing moms a few minutes to empty the dishwasher or fold a load of laundry. Though that is a great benefit, it’s nothing compared to how baby is profiting from simply playing with toys. Playing with toys is as educational as it is entertaining. Cause and effect, imaginative play, role playing, fine motor skills, and so many more important and crucial concepts are improved by playing.The Manhattan Toy Company has been around for quite a long time. With that knowledge, and the fact that they’re continuing to make popular toys conducive to both moms' wallets and kids’ preferences, it should be pretty obvious that this company is on a roll. And I’m here to tell you these toys are pretty great. We’ve recently added a good variety of these toys into our toy inventory!
Toys on the Go
At my house, there’s a very strict indoor toy/outdoor toy/travel toy policy in place. When it comes to on-the-go toys, I prefer medium-larger items to help me keep my eye on them, toys with hooks that attach to the car seat or stroller, and toys that are easy to clean as they will be out and about in public places. The Manhattan Toy Company has a great variety of toys perfect for on the go:
Camp Acorn Travel Toys - Owl Farmer's Market Peas in a Pod
Lullaby Musical Pull Toy - Squirrel Camp Acorn Travel Toys - Fox
So much goodness in one place! Colors, shapes, movement, numbers...you name it, these activity centers have it all.
I’m becoming a huge fan of wooden toys. I simply love the way they look! They’re timeless, they make good teethers (yes, these are perfectly safe for babes to chew on), and they are easy to keep track of. I absolutely love The Manhattan Toy’s wooden options.
Jurassic Adventure Wooden Playset Farmer's Market Baby Beads - Grapes
Soft and Hugable
I just don’t think it’s possible to have too many stuffed animals. And what’s better than a snuggly little friend? One that can be bundled right up!
Little Gallops Plush Horse Toy - Coco Snuggle Babies - Lion
