Although we don’t have much room in our apartment for a lot of toys, I love scouting out the latest and greatest in toys for my girls. I have a one comes in, one goes out rule with toys. So as much as we welcome new toys, we also have to say goodbye to one that doesn’t fit our needs any longer. Because we have to give a toy away, I am always very particular with what I bring in. I always want a toy to have some educational value for my girls. It can be a toy that can provide so much entertainment, but if it’s not going to teach them something, I don’t want it taking up the space in our apartment.
I had the chance to attend Time to Play, an event here in New York City, that features some of the latest and greatest toy brands that show their newest toys recently put on the market. Yesterday I was on the hunt for great toys for both babies and toddlers. Avery is kind of in the middle stage right now and is still sort of a baby but is also merging into a toddler. She still enjoys having baby toys around, but it becoming more and more intrigued with her sister’s toddler toys.
I was lucky to find a lot of great educational and fun toys yesterday. These are definitely some of spring’s hottest toys for baby and toddler!
