I take a lot of joy in finding interesting toys for my children as they get older. With each new stage, I pore over Amazon, researching and reading up on toys that will teach, engage, and stimulate his growing interests. Now that Christmas is around the corner, I thought I would do a small series on some of our favorite toys of the past since Juliet will be inheriting many of them.
Drake was 6 months old at his first Christmas and Juliet will be roughly the same age. I remember getting so excited to celebrate Drake’s first Christmas, but wondering what would be a good present to get a six month old baby who was barely even sitting up. As a whole I prefer toys that serve a purpose, whether it’s to educate or to help promote some kind of physical learning like crawling or walking, as well as ones that can sustain interest for a longer period of time so I get more bang for my buck.
That first Christmas I asked around on one of the forums I belong to about a good gift for a six month old, and the resounding answer I received was the Bright Starts Around We Go Activity Station.
