Best Musical Baby Toys
Music has been proven to stimulate the brains of babies and adults alike. The classic works of music by Mozart, Beethoven, and even nursery rhymes can help give your baby a toy they become excited by and even soothed by when they need a little comfort. As they hear the music, they'll become excited more and more as they become familiar with the rhythm and sounds of each tune.
Musical baby toys can be a great way to share your love for music and introduce them to a whole new world around them using their ears. There are toys with nursery rhymes by Fisher Price, classical music toys by Baby Einstein, and many other musical baby toys on the market today. All will help baby in many ways!
One of my baby's favorite toys is the Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes player. It looks sort of like an MP3 player, and has flashing lights when the button is pressed. There are eight or nine different classical songs featured. For the first year, this was her absolute favorite musical toy. There's no wonder it's at the top of the best sellers list on Amazon for baby! It's also under ten bucks, which is a deal considering how much use you'll get out of this. Another plus: it's practically indestructible. I can't tell you how many times my daughter threw this off of her high chair onto the tile floor, and not a scratch. Kudos, Baby Einstein.
Her next favorite toy was the Fisher Price Soothe and Glow Seahorse. This is available in pink and blue. We bought one for our house, one for the car (since it was a must-have at the time). For the first year, the seahorse put her into a tranquil state just by looking at the light up belly and hearing the soothing, bubbling ocean music. It was miraculous at times how it stopped her from crying! Now that she's over a year in age, she still likes the toy to play with, but in a different way than when she was a baby. Now, she gets excited by it since she's seen it so many times. Seahorse is a dear old friend!
