As I've written in some recent posts, I decided to start from scratch on Vicki Jo's toys. All of what she previously had were gifts, and many weren't suited to her developmental level and hand size. It's almost magical to see her interact with a toy that matches her horizon - when we took the grasper out of the box in which it came, her eyes lit up. It was like she immediately knew that it was something she was supposed to play with. All of these toys have been getting heavy use, but we try to keep it to one or two at a time. Clockwise from twelve'o'clock: Haba fish clutching toy; Little Alouette wooden rattle; perfect pacifier; Little Alouette wooden teether; Manhattan Toy grasper; Haba clutching beads. If you know anyone expecting a baby - any of these would make fantastic gifts!
