Read on for some great baby gift recommendations.

3. Learning Drum from Leap Frog

This learning drum as the name suggests, is a great cause and effect toy. The baby bangs on the drum and the drum plays music, or recites the alphabet or numbers in response to your baby's beats. The interactive voice encourages the baby to hit the drum and the surface of the drum displays numbers or letters. This lovely baby toy is very easy to operate and makes a great baby gift.

5. Tiny Love Grip n Grasp Stroller Toy

I really like this wonderful stroller toy from Tiny Love. Babies are simply fascinated by the Grip and Grasp stroller toy. I don't blame them - this cute set of three toys in one is full of stuff that babies like. A key item in the Grip and Grasp is the baby-activated woodpecker with jangling bell, crinkly wings and a brightly colored tail. Useful as well as entertaining, the Grip and Grasp features a transparent rattling bottle holder and a bounce-back cricket with crinkly wings. It sells for approximately $19.99.

6. Lamaze Octotunes

This fragrant musical Octopus from Lamaze is aptly named Octotunes! It has 8 legs which when pulled or squeezed make 8 different musical sounds. This educational baby toy is a great way to make some music and hear your baby's musical laugh! Parents usually make the music for younger babies while older babies can do it on their own. This baby gift is good for babies 6 months and older.
