Best Toys For Newborn Babies

So many toys, so little time! There are so many to choose from. But buying toys for babies aged one year and under can be tricky. Many are designed for slightly older children and those for babies can seem a little uninspiring.

If you’re looking for something special for your baby, or there’s a new arrival you want to buy for, the team at Private Pregnancy have done their baby toy research to bring you the best offerings of 2017.

Ewan The Dream Sheep


Ewan The Dream Sheep

It’s difficult not to love Ewan from first sight. This beautiful little sheep comes in purple or grey and is cleverly designed to be both toy and undercover sleep aid. Tapping into the benefits of white noise, Ewan generates a warm red glow whilst playing a choice of four different ‘sound’ tracks. Each sound track has the gentle rhythm of a heartbeat behind it, replicating the inside of the womb. There’s an on or off setting for the light and the sound level can be set high or low. Ewan will quickly become both you and your baby’s dependable night time friend.

Encouraging babies to read is seriously important. Not only does reading aloud stimulate your baby but it introduces to them important concepts such as numbers, letters, shapes and colours. Never Touch a Dinosaur is a touch and feel book, with different textures on each page that encourage learning and tactile play. The funny rhyme and colourful pictures will make this a firm favourite with you and baby.

Infantino Go GaGa Spiral Car Seat Activity Toy

It can be difficult keeping baby occupied when you’re on the move. Some babies, particularly those with reflux or colic, find it difficult being positioned in their car seat for journeys. Providing a diversion is often a good tactic to prevent tears and upset. What better diversion than an activity toy for their car seat? The Go GaGa Spiral Car Seat Activity Toy wraps around the handle of your car seat or the rungs of a cot. There are four unique toys, a self-discovery mirror and a range of shapes and textures that will keep them busy along the way.
