Play Activities For Babies Aged 1 To 12 Months

Play Activities For Babies Aged 1 To 12 Months

There are a number of activities for babies that you can do with your baby for your baby. You do not always need to use toys to stimulate your baby.  Keep in mind timing is everything. Baby will be most responsive to playfulness when they are both alert and unfussy. When they are miserable they are either wet, hungry or tired and do not want to play.

Activities For Babies  – Read To Your Child

Try to spend at least 20 minutes reading to your baby until he/she can read for themselves. When your baby is old enough to under stand  ask  questions  such as “Can you see the car? Where is the car?” Let your baby point to where the car is.

Build up a small library for your baby, later on he/she will look through the books and build up their own stories.

Here are some books that I think your child will love.

Baby’s First Book (Little Golden Book) – Great pictures, it is a  simple book that babies will love.

Soft Book Cloth Book Baby Toddler First Word Book – Do you have  wiggle worm that cannot sit still. Now they have a book to keep them still for a for minutes. They can enjoy the book without you worrying about book wont.

There are a lot of books out there, Amazon often has 2nd hand books that are in a good condition, and you can get it for a steal.

Activities For Babies – Recite Nursery Rhymes

Nursery Rhymes (Sing-along) Board book – The book has touch and feel textures for your baby to explore.

Play the cd when you are busy, your baby may seem not to listen but believe you me, they hear the cd and the rhymes get stuck in the memory.

Activities For Babies – Listen to Music With Your Baby

Sing songs in the car when shopping, play music and clap your hands to the beat. You must have some songs he can listen to and that is made for babies, and music you love.

First Songs Library – has soothing songs for your baby to listen too.

Your baby needs to be physical so be prepared to get down on the floor and interact with your baby through play.  Infants should not sit for more than an hour at a time when they are awake.

Activities For Babies  – Tummy time is essential to your babies physical and mental growth. You will be amazed at what they learn on their tummies. They strengthen their neck and other muscles as they wiggle about.  Your baby sees the world from a different view, it also helps prevent your a flat head, that babies tend to get when lying on their backs all the time.

Newborn to 3 months – Put your baby’s chest on a rolled-up towel for a few minutes while awake to play. Place toys on both sides of your baby’s head, close enough for your baby to see them.

When they are stronger and can lift their heads,  use baby mirrors and toys around your baby to help encourage your baby to reach.  You could get a  Activity Gym but it is not necessary. This strengthens the neck and upper-body muscles. Increase tummy time as your baby gets older and stronger.

Activities For Babies

Activities For Babies

Play Peek-A-Boo while lying on your tummy, hold a blanket or small pillow between you. This will encourage your baby to grab the blanket or pillow.

Place baby on play mat with his/her favorite toys suspended above them, to encourage them to reach and kick.

To encourage Visual tracking, and help visual development, while  baby is lying on their back, hold the toy in front of their face and, wiggle it slowly or gently touch her with it to get her attention. Move the toy slowly from side to side, and encourage her to follow along with her eyes.

At 3 months your baby should no longer hold a fist and you could give your baby a lightweight rattle or chew toy.  At this age Dangling Toys are great.

Activities For Babies

You can get some for the crib and play gyms. This encourages reaching, concentration and strengthens muscles. This is really great activities for babies and can be left alone to play for a few minutes.

When your baby starts to crawl make an obstacle course for them by placing pillows on the floor that they can crawl over. Place chairs that they can crawl under, if you have a big box, open both ends for baby to crawl through like a tunnel. These activities for babies teaches spatial and problem solving skills.

While playing with baby you build a strong bond and you learn the tale tell signs when things are wrong. You will notice that they do not hear sounds, or do not follow shadows or toys with their eyes. These things need to be looked at as soon as you notice this.

Play time is fun for both you and baby, make the best of it. Always praise baby when they achieve goals. Dads and moms need playtime with baby and calm time is just as important.

The Lego Toy Review

The Lego Toy Review

Lego makes a huge string of toys that are geared for ages two to fourteen. With more challenging pieces for older kids and DUPLO for the younger ones, it really gives kids the chance to assemble and research.


These toys are made from high quality material and can be assembled and taken apart over and over again. There are several types of Lego that your child might love depending on there skill level and their interest.

Bionicles are a type of Lego toy that’s based on the novels and pictures of Bionicles. They are exciting toys and have been in the hands of many active children. It come separately and are sold in small containers.

They’re fairly simple to assemble and put together with instructions and only a few bits to put together. After the warrior or the star is created, they are pretty long-lasting. They’re actually more durable than regular Lego which will fall apart if knocked or hammered too much.

Toy Story makes a Lego show that is both inviting and pleasurable to younger kids. Some of their products are run on batteries so that they are more interactive and movable. These Lego bits are small and the kits must be put together by an older child or an adult.


Indiana Jones makes tons of products for Lego. Each box features characters, scenes and vehicles from the movie. Legos made from Indiana Jones are usually very detail oriented from the whips and firearms used for play fighting to the drawings and expressions on the characters faces that are miniature.

Children will love interacting with the Lego especially if they like the movie.

Duplo is a Lego that’s geared for younger kids. They come with vehicles, and individuals to make play more fun for kids.

These Lego pieces are large enough for the whole hand to grab so even children with clumsily hands and eye coordination can foster self-confidence working with this building material.

City is a pretty new concept to the Lego world. With lots of construction set ups there is a design for every preference.

Each box features an alternative scene for example; a construction site. The materials are fairly improved to set up, so directions would need to be followed and put together by an older kid or adult. This is an excellent adult and child activity that gives some quality time together.

Playskool Toys Review

Playskool Toys Review

Playskool Toys Review takes a look at a few of the toys that Playskool makes. With over a century in business, Playskool is one of the old companies serving the marketplace of toys for young kids.
Since its acquisition by Hasbro, Playskool continues to be in the custom of continuously getting better, coming out with 9 new slogans over a period of 25 years. That is an average of a brand new slogan once every 3 years. The company’s slogan is more than play, which it adopted in 2009.

Playskool Toys Review

As a Preschool teacher, I found that toddlers just loved this toy. It was the first one to be chosen. The toddlers never got tired of pushing, turning and pressing the the knobs or lids of the Poppin toy.

Playskool Toys A Review


Playskool also makes products that are advertised towards babies and preschool children, which are aimed at developing motor skills, the Tummy Time line, such as the Kick Start Gym, and the Step Start Walk ‘n Ride.

Playskool Toys Review –  Kick Start Gym

Playskool Toys A Review

With a lot of excellent products available, it is actually no wonder that Playskool has been in business for over a century. What childhood would be complete without those colorful clay-like figures of Play-Doh, the distinctive scent which will bring adults back to their childhood days.

Or those childhood hours spent making funny faces with a Mr. Potato Head doll and giggling at the results. And what boy did not play around constructing houses with Lincoln Logs or hasn’t had a Tonka Truck? And what young girl doesn’t want a Baby Alive doll or a My Little Pony doll to love and nurture?

And the firm is now making several additional products under the Playskool name such as infant care supplies, books, children’s clothes, and also video games, and continues to expand and improve.

The Playskool Business is among those iconic companies that have affected all of our youths, as you would expect from a company that is been running a successful toy business for over a century. Few other children’s toy companies can compare to Playskool’s age, still match its success.

Its products are in almost every home where young children play and learn. The firm is undoubtedly around “More Than Play”. They make excellent toys that build memories that last a very long time, passing their success to the following generation when those children become parents and grow up.

Big Ben 3D Puzzle

Big Ben 3D Puzzle

Big Ben 3D Puzzle

This Big Ben 3D Puzzle, is an authentic representation of London’s historic landmark. It is made by CubicFun and is challenging It has 30 pieces and is about a level 4 in the difficulty level. You get instructions and pictures with the puzzle. The pieces themselves need to be removed from a cardboard pattern piece.

The pieces slot into place, and measures about 38.5cm in height when done. You may want to tape the sides together with clear tape. It does get covered later. I found it best to use a sharp nosed tweezer to help push out the small pieces. They snap together perfectly to form a sturdy construction.

I got the video from Vision Kids on you tube.

The Big Ben is actually the St Stephen’s Tower, but it got the name of Big Ben from the name of the largest bell inside the clock tower. Old pennies are placed in the mechanism to keep the time accuracy.

The clock tower measures 40 square feet at the base and stands at an imposing height of 320 feet.  A light above the clock shines whenever the Parliament is in session, indicating the continued functioning of the British government.

Each of the four dials on the clock is 221/2 feet (7 meters) in diameter, and the complete length of each of the hollow copper minute hands is 14 feet (4 meters).

Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Review

Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Review

Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Review is to inform parents on a toy that could be helpful at bedtimes. The birth of a baby is a life changing event, especially for first time parents. I remember when our baby was born and how we were proud and worried at the same time.

We wanted to be sure to do everything right, to give our small baby the best possible start.  Now, two children later, we are much more relaxed, but no less proud.

All of our children are happy and healthy. To give them the best possible start, we have been very careful with toys we choose for them. Over the years, we have found that the giant toy industry, Fisher-Price are among the safest and most attractive we’ve found.

Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium

One of the baby toys in particular is called Ocean Wonders Aquarium. This is a striking toy aquarium with a series of movements and sounds to entertain and engage any baby. We have also found that it is very good to soothe your baby to sleep. The range of sound effects include ocean waves, falling rain .

Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Review

The toy is easily connected to one side of a crib, but must be mounted within the reach of the baby, since all the fun starts with a simple click of the big blue button on the base.

Your baby will experience an attractive range of lights and sounds designed to calm him or her to sleep peacefully.
Even the fussiest baby will be soothed to sleep by this toy. Your baby will see big and small fish and play hide and seek with a lovely crab. The range of features includes, soft soothing music, floating algae, soft lights and bubbles bouncing.

The toy comes with a remote control that allows parents to restart the show without disturbing the baby. There are 5 soothing tunes, 3 aquatic sounds and a mixture of all 8. It can be seen continuously for 18 minutes. The toy fits into the most standard cribs, and the battery can be changed while it is in place. It requires 3 C batteries, remote needs two AAA batteries(included).

It’s easy to get your baby started listening to classical music as the Ocean Wonders Aquarium features music by Mozart and Bach.
As the baby grows, it is a simple matter of removing the movable part, leaving only the soft music and a comforting night light. This toy is suitable for children up to 36 months.

Just remember to restart after 18 minutes. When shopping for baby toys, be sure to consider the Aquarium Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders. Highly recommended.
