Over stimulation 5 month old

My little girl is 5 months old. Recently she seems to be getting lots more excited about her toys, reaching her arms out for them and making happy noises when she gets them in her hands. However, once she starts to play with them the playing gets more and more frantic and the excitement seems to morph to anger, until she is crying. But she also cries if I try and take them off her before this point. The more excited she seems by a toy, the quicker it seems to make her angry with her favourite ones winding her up within just a few minutes particularly if she is even a tiny bit tired. Could this be overstimulation? Or frustration that she can't quite control her body to play with them how she likes yet? Has anyone else had this, and did they grow out of it? It's lovely seeing her so excited about her toys, but I'm now just waiting knowing she will end up crying!

It does sound like a phase but it might be worthwhile hiding her toys that flash or make noises and getting out some calmer ones for a while smile
