Wondering what 4-month old toys to buy for your little one? If you’ve been following on Instagram, you know that I haven’t wanted to buy toys in excess or anything that isn’t developmentally appropriate for Riley. We did however choose to subscribe to the Lovevery Playkits and the toys that have come in them, along with the Playgym, have definitely been some of our most used baby products. Around 4 months, I really noticed that Riley was more excited about playing with her toys and we could definitely be a little more interactive. The crinkle paper toys were a definite hit and she started to grab and reach at her toys versus just staring at the contrast pictures. Read below to see Riley’s absolutely favourite 4 month old toys!
We’re having such a fun time with Riley at 4 months old. Its a huge milestone in terms of developmental leaps so she’s learning something new almost every day! These toys have helped her learn to grab toys and bring to her mouth; kick to make a sound with cause-and-effect (and build those core muscles) as well as spend time on her tummy.
1. The Kushies Silibounce Teether
This teether is such a hit with Riley who is gnawing and chewing on anything at the moment (especially her poor little hands). It’s been really easy for her to hold because of the holes plus it’s lightweight so she can move it easily.
2. The Lovevery PlayKits
I love these Playkits because they always include developmentally-appropriate and open-ended toys, which means that there are more ways to play with the toys (and way more bang for your buck!). Plus, you can save $20 on your sign up here!
The big mirror in the Charmer Playkit (3-4 months) is perfect for Riley to stare at herself in (and great for those babes that hate tummy time. The crinkle toys have been the most exciting because the noise response from a touch or a kick teaches her cause and effect.
3. The Lovevery Playgym + Sensory Strands
A friend got us the Playgym and it was honestly best the gift we received! I love that it is thoughtfully designed and research-driven, plus it grows with your baby throughout their first year milestones. I just purchased the Sensory Strands as an add-on because I wanted her to spend more time trying to grab and hold things. She loves them!
4. The Jellycat Rattle
We got multiples of the Jellycat rattles as gifts before Riley arrived and I thought that they would be useless, but having more than one allows us to dot them around the house: one by her Playgym / Play Area; one in the diaper bag or in the carseat for when we go out; and one by the change table to keep her happy while changing a diaper.
Since it’s been such a hit, I might buy this jellycat rattle that can be attached to the carseat handle.
