The Ultimate Toy Wishlist

Toys are fun, but they can double as helpful tools for milestone achievers! These toys contribute to cognitive and motor skills needed for achieving milestones throughout childhood. To make it easier, we’ve categorized these toys in age groups for all your Littles. Here at Love & Chiro, we hope to make your holiday shopping easy and productive, so we’ve linked each product straight to amazon – all you have to do is click and add!

Ages 0-12 months: Babies in this age group are growing at a rapid rate. For the first 6 months, tummy time, self recognition, and oral-motor development are the focus. From 6-12 months, we see an increase in coordination and balance as your baby learns to roll, sit, crawl, and stand. These are our favorite toys to help facilitate these important milestones:

Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Musical Toy

Crawling Crab Baby Toy

Manhattan Toy Winkel Rattle & Sensory Teether Toy

Tummy Time Baby Mirror


Ages 1-3: Through the toddler years, your child will be on the move with running and walking! Along with those gross motor skills, they’re also learning to tune into their creative side and begin their fine motor skill training too! Montessori toys like the ones we’ve listed below help your little get vital sensory input and practice with stacking, banging, pulling, pinching, grasping, and getting creative!
