These are a few of my favorite things…

Sound of Music fans anyone? I use to love this movie when I was younger. We all have our favorite things that we enjoy.  Believe it or not, babies do too! Today I’m sharing with you some of my son’s favorite toys that he currently enjoys. (because he’s only 11 months and it changes every week!) My son is at such a fun age right now where he is truly showing interest in things. We have been so blessed to have received so many wonderful hand me downs and many of them are currently Johnny’s favorite toys. I may have to do another post about my favorite things as a new mom. By the way, is anyone else overwhelmed with how many toys there are for babies? So many choices!

Here are just a few of my sweet boy’s favorite toys!



(side rant: it drives me nuts that blocks is spelled “bloks”…I know there is a reason behind it, but how confusing to kids!)

Right now he loves just taking them out and putting them back in. When I build giant towers, he loves breaking them down. We’re working on connecting the legos and stacking them. Right now he loves to pull them apart.


Squeeze and Stack Block Set (with numbers 1-10)

Currently he loves throwing these! (He is into throwing everything now!) Occasionally he’ll stack a few when I’m sitting there with him (although it’s only when he’s in the mood!) These are soft enough for him to get a good grip when picking them up.


Baby Einstein Rock, Light, and Roll Guitar

Every little boy has to rock out to a guitar! We bought this for him when he was about 5 months old and didn’t show too much interest, but now he really enjoys it. He loves spinning the middle piece and listening to the songs it plays.

Forewarning it is a loud toy.


VTech Sit- to- Stand

This is one that has grown with Johnny! He now loves to cruise around while holding onto this. He still enjoys playing with the items in front. (we are on a mission to find the purple phone that comes with it!)


Ninja Turtle Ball

Another “every little boy has to have” item! Johnny just recently has shown interest in rolling (or throwing) balls. Why is it ninja turtle themed? It’s just cool looking, that’s all! Plus, my husband picked this one out. 🙂


TOMY Hide N Squeak Eggs

Johnny loves playing hide n seek with basically anything. I really like this toy for him because it helps with color identification and on the box there are so many different types of activities to incorporate with babies. I usually sit and play with him, that way he’ll understand how to play with it.(We are currently on the mission of finding two of the eggs!) If you’re thinking of another Christmas item for your little one, this is a great one! Click here to view it on Amazon.


Fisher- Price Laugh and Learn to Play Puppy Plush Toy

Johnny likes pressing buttons and this is fun because it works on identifying parts of the body along with learning songs.

These are just a few of his favorite things and I’m sure they’ll change next month. And oh yeah, I can’t forget about empty boxes, laundry baskets, pots and pans…you know the unusual things babies like! 😉

What’s some of your  little one’s favorite toy items?
