Hot toys for babies from 0 – 12 months

What do you get for the little person in your life that will probably be more interested in the wrapping and the box it came in rather then the present itself? When you are considering buying toys for babies up to 12 months you have to realise that they're growing so quick they will probably tire of it quite quickly. Also babies under 3 months tend not to have too much interest in toys, as grabbing hold of their hands and feet is already pretty much a pinnacle in their day-to-day development.

Firstly developmental toys are absolutely brilliant a baby who is changing and growing every single day. You need something that will challenge their mind, reflex their muscles and make them want to learn through fun. To make your life easier I will post the relevant toys in sections, going through the different ages.
