97 Ways to Make a Baby Laugh, by New Jersey resident Jack Moore-father of a previously unamused boy named Brick--keeps the chortles coming with a collection of infant-tested sight gags, skits, parlor tricks, and practical jokes. Among the author's suggestions are the "Live Jack-in-the Box" game (featuring Dad), "the Magnet Trick," which involves moving an object across baby's high-chair while holding an undetected magnet underneath, and a "Silly Face Contest." They're a little nutty, require no training, and few props, and are guaranteed to work-with one condition: grown-ups can't hold back. Which means not only will you be tickling Baby's funnybone, but your own as well. -- The Parent Paper

Beyond Peek-A-Boo. Nothing pleases new parents more than Baby's first laugh, and here to keep the chortles coming is a collection of infant-tested sight gags, skits, parlor tricks and practical jokes. Try THE LIVE JACK-IN-THE-BOX. THE "SCAMOOCH." BABY'S STINKY FEET. Or THE DISAPPEARING NOODLE (for best results use cappellini al dente). They're a little nutty, require no training and few props (Baby's hat, bubble gum, a polka CD), and are guaranteed to work--on one condition. Grown-ups can't hold back. Which means not only will you be tickling Baby's funny bone, but your own as well.
