Safety and Toys for Baby Boys

Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping for toys for a baby boy.

  • Production – Where a toy or gift is made can tell you a lot about the quality and the safety requirements that were in place while the toy was produced.
  • Materials – Unfortunately, it is still necessary to check for lead or lead based paint on some toys. This is especially true for toys imported from other countries. The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission is a great place to start.
  • Small Pieces – Even at four years old, you want to make sure the toy does NOT have a lot of small pieces that can be swallowed, causing a child to choke. Playing with a child at this age is also recommended.
  • Age Appropriate – The best bet is to buy toys that are recommended as age appropriate for babies. These days, toys include information about the suggested age range of children.

Educational & Learning Toys

At age one and younger, it is a good idea to get toys that can help with basic skills. Music toys are a great idea – rattles and pianos and other noise makers.



Top Toys for Baby Boys

Here are a few of our top picks for baby toys this year. The classic toys are classic for a reason!

Fisher-Price Go Baby Go! Bop & Rock Musical Lion

Overall, we recommend the Fisher-Price Go Baby Go! Bop & Rock Musical Lion. Pounding ball play has never been this much fun! A cute lion character joins baby as they play with the 3 included balls and soft plastic hammer. Baby can easily load the balls on top of the holes in the lion’s drum and pound them through, getting fun tunes, lights, SFX and surprise roll out action.

Fisher-Price Precious Planet Giraffe Stacker

Overall, we recommend the Fisher-Price Precious Planet Giraffe Stacker. What’s more fun than stacking rings? Stacking rings full of textures and fun sounds on a friendly giraffe’s long neck. They rattle, jingle and squeak as the smiling giraffe rocks.

Fisher-Price Precious Planet Kick and Play Piano

Overall, we recommend the Fisher-Price Precious Planet Kick and Play Piano. Kicks can lead to something even more exciting and special, with musical rewards, dancing lights and adorable animal friends from around the planet. And this is one piano that fits easily in the crib or moves to the floor as baby grows. Includes 3 AA batteries. 2 Musical Play Modes
