"It can be challenging to shop for infants you don't know very well. Children all develop at different rates and it’s tough to know exactly where kids are at developmentally (especially in the first few years). Don't look clueless! Here are a few gifts with long-lasting appeal so they’re sure to be lots of fun." - Jessica, West Loop Store Manager
Tegu Blocks: Safe for babies mouths but still interesting for toddler building play.
Pound & Tap Bench: Fun for large motor control (pounding balls) with a removable xylophone for years of play.
Ladybug Sorter: Can be played on land or in the bathtub, depending on if the child is playing in the tub yet.
Multi-Sensory Balls: Great for developing sensory connections in small infants and also for learning to catch a ball when kids get older.
Gund Teddy with Bed: The teddy bear is safe for the very young, and the bed encourages early pretend play.
