I got my little girl a few things. Only because I wanted her to have something under the tree. But I know she cannot appreciate any of this at such a young age. t her was a few baby books and a farm house with animals in it. Nothing crazy.

I have actually been asking family and friends NOT to buy Ella anything. And if they feel so compelled, they can help contribute to her RESP for the future. $10 in there is far better than any amount on a toy she will only use for a few months (if that).

Hi all - I have both a 6 month old daughter and an almost 3 year old son. I just got our 6 month old a couple of educational and fun toys from a Discovery Toys party and I am so impressed that I decided to become a consultant! The one I love the best is called the "Try-Angle" - it keeps her entertained for 20-30 minutes and is SOOOO versatile. I would highly recommend it. You can check out the catalogue at: www.discoverytoyslink.com/follow_me.

If you're interested in getting high quality educational toys for FREE (yes, FREE), consider hosting a party. Many of us joined Mom's groups when our babes were born and it's a great way to get everyone together. I'm in Edmonton and you can contact me if you're interested.

Im in the same position. I plan on getting toys that will help with development. Things that have lights and sounds, activity centers with shapes, numbers and letters. Like everyone else was saying, they don't know/understand yet, so I guess you can use it to your advantage now. They are not going to want that kind of stuff when they are older!

I'm getting Jaelyn a few toys and a ornament. I also agree with kristen ripping paper will be a blast for the kids. I found in a flyer in the sunday paper a tent with a tunnel attached to it.. It looks so adorable and totally affordable $20 and by christmas Jaelyn will be crawling so I'm wondering if that might be a gift that she might get alot of use out of. My problem is,is I don't want to get her alot of things that she will end up not using.

Young bubbas dont really get excited or to understand what Christmas is about until they get older...the most exciting thing they want to do, is like Kristen said - rip open paper - my nephew is 3 and still prefers that over the gifts haha.. In saying that though, here where I live in Australia, we have sooo many toy sales during the year, so I have bought a lot of bright coloured stimulating toys and books..things he can interact and play with... Mr Men books are cute..heaps of colours and I love the stories haha...

I'm getting just a few toys for my daughter, but I am thinking about letting her help me open presents, too. Babies this young aren't gonna care what they are getting, but I can tell ripping that paper is gonna be too fun to resist. I might also get her a token gift, like an ornament.
