The list author says: "This addition to my list "A New Mom's Must-Haves" includes items that have been indispensable for me in the last year (my son is now 18 months). I didn't have these items on my baby registry, but I should have, because I needed them soon enough!"
"This shape sorter will challenge your child for many months, as his/her ability grows from being able to manage just the circle to being able to match all the shapes. It's more challenging than some more basic shape sorters, but it keeps the child engaged for longer."
"This is the perfect high chair solution for weekends at the grandparents' house. Small and portable, it can be tucked away in a closet when not in use. Buy one to leave at Grandma's! Can be used as a booster seat when the tray is no longer needed."
"This toy is delightful for babies from infant to toddler. At 18 months, my son is still not tired of pushing the button and "dancing" to the music. When he was younger, this toy could not be beat for portability and usefulness in distracting him when we were out and about."
"I'm sure you remember this toy from your own childhood. Kids still love it! Yes, it's rather annoying to hear going around your house, but it's also a good toy for learning walkers...and if it delights your child, you'll soon grow used to the pop-pop noise!"
