Staff Favorites: 20 Essential Products for Baby's 1st Year

Infantino Peek, Rattle, and Teether

From Infantino. This toy stimulates your baby's senses with fun colors, textures, and teething rings. One of our FamilyEducation babies got a lot of use out of these: "They are light and easy for young babies to grasp. As 1-2 month-olds, [the babies] started out just looking at the various colors and patterns. They graduated to teething on them, playing with the different sounds (crinkles, rattles, bells), and exploring the various textures. They loved to play with these in their car seats while traveling - and they are soft and easy-to-pack."
