Gift and Shopping Guide:
We all know that children spell love T-I-M-E. They need our presence much more than our presents. But parents often ask me for recommendations for toys for their child, or for a list of items they'll need for their new baby. So here you are -- and every item in this guide is something I personally believe in.
You'll note that my favorite toys can be used in open-ended ways to support creative play. To read more about the science behind developmentally appropriate toys, take a look at this article: Play, Creativity and Toys.
And something else to feel good about: As an Amazon Associate, Aha! Parenting earns a few pennies when you click here to purchase from Amazon, even though you don't pay anything extra. Thank you for helping make this website possible!
