If Christmas is feeling a little too close for comfort and if you really don't know what to buy little Joey or Evie for Christmas this year, help is at hand. We have compiled a list of the best toys of 2012 to help you write a Christmas list full of fun toys that your kids will love!
Babies as young as 9 months are able to press the home button, then press the "orange button," and watch videos. In general, kids appear to be careful iPhone guardians and will eventually relinquish it and move on to other activities. As one husband wrote: "My daughter was just 2.7 when I got my iPhone, and even then I found it was safer to give it to her than to my wife, who is a Facebook addict."
Think small when organizing clothes closets for young kids. Small drawers, cubbies, and storage bins make it easy for kids to find what they're looking for without making a mess. Keep clothing in short stacks in shallow drawers so they don't have to riffle through huge piles. Put toys and books on open shelves in plain sight where they are easy to grab and put away. Use baskets and boxes to keep small items orderly. Keep these storage containers small, too, so they're lightweight and easy to search through.
Your toddler is continuing to develop at an exciting rate. He or she requires toys that can aide in teaching multiple concepts at the same time. Toddlers are learning cause and effect, how to use both hands at the same time, how to construct and destruct and the foundations of colors, shapes and numbers. They are also pulling up, cruising, crawling and toddling, so using toys that encourage movement are a must.
