Mines loves this pink seahorse that belly lights up and plays music while having bubbling sounds. She also like a big ball with a smaller ball inside of it. The outside what a design that she can easily grab and manipulate. The same with a rattle, she loves tapping hersef in the tummy and hearing the noise.

I have a book that suggests toys and games at all developmental stages, called the wonder weeks, its my bible!! it suggested empty chip packets and asymmetrical shapes like those plastic keys, also looking in the mirror :)

My 3 month old also loves to sit up and tries to sit up on her own. We also have a Bumbo chair she likes it too.

My 4 month old loves to try and sit up and stand up but is not yet strong enough to do it on his own so I just bought him the Bumbo chair that supports him while he is sitting and it also has a tray on it to put his rattles and other toys on, he loves it!

Mine loves her bright stars toy mat, hanging toys and one big one that plays music or makes silly noises, I don't know what its called but its a organic cotton blanket with a bunny head she loves to snuggle that thing, a little teddy bear from gap kids with a rattle in it (a gift from a cousin that works there) and little "wrist" rattles, I dunno why they call them wrist rattles they are way too big, but she can grip them. Also theres this giraffe at Toys r Us thats all organic, natural dyes that another baby I know loves too. And of course theres her books, right now we're reading Stewart Little and Daddy reads her bedtime stories, and of course nursery rhymes

teethers, anything that lights up and sings, hanging toys, rattles, ect... not stuffed animals because they dont understand those things yet. books! read to them. they love the colors and the sound of your voice.

My son is just barely 3 months and he's really enjoying his (baby einstein) play mat. He used to just cry when I'd place him on it, but now he'll be content there for atleast a half hour just waving his hands around, and being surprised when his hand hits a toy and it swings in front of him -- very cute. The exercausser is still a little advanced for him but he enjoys it for small amounts of time. I have to put blankets behind him and in front of him to keep him stable. I've been given a ton of books, but my son by far prefers the Dr. Seuss books, for whatever reason, probably the vibrant colors and consistent sound repetition.

my twin girls love their floor mat. (Bright starts). They lay on it for quite a long time and just bat at the hanging toys! Highly recommended

Rattles, Teddies, Books. My little boy loves his new whinnie the pooh toy. If he shakes the rattle pooh shakes it back and also sings. Makes him giggle soo much!

Of course mine have far too many toys after Christmas but the ones they play with most - that they can pick up in their hands are small little ones that make noise, they love to shake them , also ones with lots of colour , I bought lots of soft cuddly teddies but they have no interest in them yet and prefer the little rattle ones. I have also started to read to them and they are amazed looking at the books - very cute .
