Wondering what baby toys to buy for your little one at four months old? 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.

The Kushies Silibounce Teether
Although Riley only cut her first tooth at six months, she’s been ‘teething’ and gumming at toys since three months. Most teethers were difficult for her to hold so I ordered this teether from Kushies and she loved it! It was easier for her to hold and she could also lean into it on during tummy time and really gnaw at it.
The Lovevery Play Kits
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.
The Lovevery Play Gym + Sensory Strands
A friend got us the Lovevery Play Gym 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!
Crinkle Toys! (Or Anything That Makes A Noise)
Who knew crinkle toys would be such a hit, but they’re definitely Riley’s favourites. The Crinkle Bag that comes with the Charmer Play Kit (Months 3 – 4) and the Organic Cotton Teether that came with the Lovevery Play Gym are two big hits.
We’ve got two Jellycat rattles (they’re a popular baby gift!) and 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.
You can get them from Indigo.
