Absolute Best 0-6 month Baby Toys!  Very helpful for new moms/parents

A Listmania! list by thea
The list author says: "While pregnant, I spent hours researching award winning toys and toys with the best reviews by parents on amazon as well as other toy websites. I also checked out what moms had to say about toys in online parenting forums. Armed with this information, I then bought all my toys and gear. I think the research paid off because most of the stuff I got has been wonderfully helpful and fun for my son. Even at 7.5 months, he still uses & enjoys all of these products!"
Manhattan Toy Winkel Rattle and Sensory Teether Activity Toy
1.  Manhattan Toy Winkel Rattle and Sensory Teether Activity Toy by Manhattan Toy
The list author says:
  "The first "toy" to hold my son's interest.  Introduced at 2.5 months, it peaked in popularity between 3-4 months. Good for interrupting or prevent a melt down; we took it everywhere.  Easy for babies to grab and hold, pliable and skwishy, a great teether."

Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether
2.  Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether by Vulli
The list author says:

Manhattan Toy Skwish Classic Rattle and Teether Grasping Activity Toy
3.  Manhattan Toy Skwish Classic Rattle and Teether Grasping Activity Toy by Manhattan Toy
The list author says:
  "Almost as good as the winkel but wait to introduce until after baby is better coordinated (because they can accidentally hit themselves in the eye or forehead with the wooden balls).  Great teether, easy to grab and skwish, very entertaining."

Sarah's Silks Rainbow Playsilk
4.  Sarah's Silks Rainbow Playsilk by Sarah's Silks

Lamaze Discovery Pyramid
5.  Lamaze Discovery Pyramid by Learning Curve
The list author says:
  "Introduced at 2.5 months old, this and the "winkel" were the first toys that he became interested in.  You'll want soft toys for babies under 3.5 months as they don't have the coordination to avoid hitting themselves.  Great for batting, grabbing, throwing, staring in mirror,lots of colors & textures.  Perfect for tummy time or side lying."

Fisher-Price Rainforest Bouncer
7.  Fisher-Price Rainforest Bouncer by Fisher-Price
The list author says:
  "This really is more "gear" than toy, but invaluable (sometimes you need to have baby confined to one spot safely and keep them entertained).  Introduced at 1 month old, the toybar would provide 5-10 minutes of entertainment before becoming overstimulating."

Haba Kringelring
11.  Haba Kringelring by HABA
