Babies: 6 - 9 Months

7 Month Old What to play with ?

What are your goto toys for this age?

Does anyone recommend a jumparoo?

I'd like to help her with her gross motor skills and mobility.

Right now, DD currently enjoys:

Exersaucer
Activity Mat
Books
anything that lights up or makes noise
Mirrors

Re: 7 Month Old What to play with ?

  • Cj has the fisher price rainforest jump aroo and loves it. He has just figured out how to really make it bounce. It provides a little more gross motor than the exercersaucer with all the jumping and bouncing

    It depends on what you want baby to learn. My doc recommended lots of Bumbo and tummy time to help LO develop the muscles to crawl. If you want to develop jumping/leg strength or just entertain baby for short periods of time the Jumperoo is great.

    If you are looking for entertainment, my Lo really started enjoying being sat in front of a bucket of small new objects to explore at that age.  Safe things like plastic measuring spoons, rattles, baby keys, etc.

  • DS loves his jumperoo, play mat, stuffed animals, swing, teething toys and anything that lights up.

  • DS actually enjoys sitting up by himself and plays with stacking cups - he'll bang them individually, bang them together, eat them etc.  When he's on his tummy, I'll stack the cups to make it a tall tower - and encourage DS to crawl towards the tower to knock the cups over.

    We have a jumperoo and DS enjoys it, but he's never a big jumper. Most of the time he just sits in there and plays with the toy.

    We also have the FP musical table. DS likes to bang on the different buttons to get music & lights going.  The legs of the table come off so we have it on the floor.

  • We have the Baby Einstein Jumperoo, my lil guy loves it. He doesn't really use the jumping function but he loves playing with all the toys. It also has hooks to hang your own toys off it, we change up the toys every week or so.

     For increasing mobility, I don't really have any toy recommendations but a lot of floor time will help with this. My DS loves to zero in on the items he isn't supposed to play with and zooms across the floor to them, paper, extension cord, remote control etc. Even though we baby proofed it is amazing what he can find to get into. 

     His favorite toys at the moment are Sophie, Fisher Price stacker rings and an Infantino toy barn.

    We have this same jumperoo and DS loves it. A few other of his favorites are a soft keyboard that lights up and plays sounds, a move and crawl ball that rolls on it's own around the floor, and an elephant toy where you put plastic balls in the top and they shoot out the bottom. He loves sitting up and catching the balls.

    Another thing he likes playing with that we didn't buy for him is measuring cups and spoons. Whenever I'm cooking I put him on a mat in the kitchen with the measuring spoons and cups and he will bang them happily the entire time I'm cooking. He loves them for some reason. It's really cute.

    ETA the roll and crawl ball is great for mobility. DS rolls everywhere to try to catch it and also has started trying to crawl to get it. I think it was 20 dollars at target.

  • 7 month olds are a lot simpler than you think! i bought DD the fisher price basics: baby's first blocks. she's learning how to put the shapes into the holes and she really likes to bang the blocks together haha. i swear that thing can entertain her for hours.

  • My LO wants to move. He is very interested in walking so he loves his walker. We also have a fisher price cash register that he loves using too. Anything that lights up, makes sound, and that he can especially hit.

  • Love the rainforest jumperoo, and I just bought her the Vtech Move and Crawl ball yesterday. Anything that stacks is good too. We also have a walker that she likes to be in, even though she can't quite touch yet.
