I want my daughter to be well educated but I think she’s pretty smart for 7 months old anyway because she is always curious as to what’s happening around her and she is doing a few things I’ve never known a 7 month to do.

  • Picture books and Vtech toys are really good for young babies.

  • wow your keen, they are like sponges, just read to her. kids like anything that isn’t a toy lol

  • Pretty much any toy you buy for a baby will be educational. They have so much to learn, anything new us learning fir them

  • Yes books and leap frog educational toys!

  • Books, books and more books. Read to your baby, point to pictures. The touch and feel books are great too. Bath books.

  • look on ELC website. fantastic toys for all stages

  • Keep it simple. At 7mths, so called “educational” toys are unlikely to have any more benefit than regular toys, or even household items as someone else has suggested. In fact, simple toys encourage creativity more than toys that specify how they should be used. Play in itself is educational and you don’t need fancy (or expensive) toys for your child to learn from play.

  • i like to buy alot of leapfrog educational toys that teaches abc numbers reading things like that

  • I also love books and I think reading to them from a young age can help to foster a love of reading.

  • fisher price and leapfrog have a good range of toys. baby einsteins are a good range of educational dvds

  • I’d be focusing on books, books and more books. They are so important for kids and babies. It’s never too early to start reading to them.

  • usually more aware babies like yours (and mine lol) will prefer household items but anything that makes noise and reacts to them will be a hit.

  • was going to say none! my 6 month old is happy tearing u paper, playing peekaboo or going in his walker.

  • Books, books and more books! Shape sorters, stacking toys, and most importantly – keep talking to her, pointing out things – colours, animals, shapes – everything! It’s a lovely age and they learn so quickly. Enjoy this lovely time :)
