Family have very kindly started to ask what we would like for our baby for Christmas. She will be 6 mths old and I have no idea what toys / other things we will need by then. She loves her activity mat and bouncy chair at the moment - what's the next stage? I'd like to get things which she will get lots of use out of. She has lots of books, which she really enjoys already, so other educational ideas would be good.

I thought maybe a high chair, or one of those seats you put on a normal chair (we have a small flat).

Ideas gratefully received!

Wow, your 6 month old enjoys books? Now i'm worried, mine only uses books for teething!

She loves the pictures - it's very cute watching her touching the pages and squealing in delight. She does chew them as well. Winnie the Pooh is getting a bit dog-eared from dribble!

Blimey. Mine doesn't notice the pictures, it's just all about the chewing. Clearly raising a little genius.

I can't offer any advice (helpful much?! Sorry)but as my DD is exactly same age as yours we gave exactly the same issue, so marking my place with interest! smile

For a first baby: booster seat/high chair. Can get portable boosters for travel/eating out.
Stacking cups. Jigsaw puzzle where the pieces have pegs to go in holes.
Bath book, pouring bath toys, musical toys that sound OK.
Nice blanket or quilt, size 18-36mo grobags.
Toy storage units!

For baby no. 2 I have no idea - clothes and more storage I think!

We've asked for clothes from everyone as dd goes through them at an alarming rate, everyone loves buying cute little person outfits, it's very flexible budget wise, and if it's horrid we can hide it in a drawer for a while and then claim she's out grown it. Win! grin

You can buy some soft cubes with different animations to stimulate your baby’s imagination. Your baby will find numerous ways to play and this will improve its’ creativity and orientation skills. Also different textures will develop the baby’s’ sense of touch. Or you can try a musical toy. The baby will enjoy it.
