What are the best toys for a 4 month old baby?
The best toys for 4 month old babies are ones which are colorful to stimulate visual senses, make sounds to appeal to their hearing and have lots of different textures to feel and touch. As you may know babies this age are discovering and developing all their sense so any toys that stimulate the senses will occupy and entertain babies of 4 months old.
They are also discovering their hands so will love to reach out and bat and grab at toys they can see dangling in front of them. They are not yet sitting so toys and items that support them are useful at 4 months old. They are also discovering different things by putting them in their mouth, so it is essential that toys for this age are safe to chew on.

Put baby in the jumperoo which is a safe place to sit and play. Baby will love jumping up and down safely and Mom and Dad will love watching. There are tons of toys around to reach for and explore too.
This has been a great toy for me. I was able to put my son in there as a baby while I went and did the washing up! He loved bouncing up and down in it. He has even fallen asleep in there quite a few times.
Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Soothe and Glow Seahorse
This is a great toy toy help soothe babies before bedtime but it could just be used as as a cuddle toy during the day too.
Baby cuddles the seahorse and and his belly gently glows and plays 5 minutes of ocean sounds and music. There are 8 different lullabies and classical selections as well as 2 ocean tracks.
After 5 minutes the music fades so as not to disturb babies as they fall to sleep.
Leapfrog My Pal
This is a really cute cuddly toy that will grow with your child.
You can customize it by downloading baby's name.
There's lots of songs and lots of them teach concepts such as numbers, animals, food and colors.
As they get older they can learn to press the different paws for different activities. There's a paw for singing daytimes songs, lullabies and another paw for activities.

A winkel is another great toy for a 4 month old baby because it is safe and easy to chew on to relieve sore gums. It's easy to grab and the colors and design make it fascintating for baby to look at and handle. It also contains a rattle to engage babies and it's soft to handle and chew too.
This is a great ball that 4 month olds will easily be able to grab, look at and handle due to its design. At this age they will be fasincated just to hold the ball but what makes the odball so great is it offers so much more as baby gets older. Older babies will enjoy rolling the odball and crawling after it. The odball is also easy to throw and catch for older babies too.
Lamaze make some great toys for 4 month old babies.
They are very colorful in design so attract babies attention visually. Each toy has lots of different textures to feel and explore. It depends which toy you buy as to the materials they are but the toys include materials with crinkly textures, furry material, smooth, hard and bumpy things to feel. They include sounds such as rattles and squeakers. Many of the toys include mirrors and teethers too. Each toy includes a loop which you can attach to car seats and push chairs so you don't have to worry about your baby dropping the toys everywhere.
These toys are perfect for babies of 4 months as they will love to feel and explore the different textures as well as hear the squeakers and rattles. They will also love to explore them with their fingers too.
Freddie the Firefly is one of the most popular Lamaze toys
It's bright and colorful so really attracts baby's attention and there's lots of different textures of material for fingers to explore. There are also squeakers and mirrors too.
A colorful beach ball is a lovely colorful toy that 4 month old babies are sure to love. You can roll it to them and encourage them to roll it away from them. They will love patting it. You can also lean them on the top of it for tummy time too.
As they get older a beach ball is good for rolling, kicking, throwing, playing catch as well as obviously taking to the beach.
Baby Gyms for 4 Month Old Babies
At 4 months baby gyms are great play toys. They will love reaching out and trying to bat and grab the toys hanging above them. Many gyms have lights, sounds and music which they love to watch and listen to.
We have the Fisher Price Rainforest baby gym. My son is now 11 months and we still get it out on occasion. Then he still enjoys looking at the lights and batting the toys.
At 4 months he was fascinated by the lights and sounds. He used to love batting and trying to grab the toys. It was good for tummy time too as there are little tags babies enjoy touching and feeling as well as crinkly leaves and bright colorful pictures on the mat to look at. The mat is slightly padded for extra comfort.
This is another idea of a baby play gym but it also converts into a ball pit. My son loved a ball pit from around 7 or 8 months of age. He would spend ages feeling the balls and handling them, so I can see you could quite a bit of use out of this toy as well as being used as a play gym for a 4 month old baby.
The skiwsh toy was one of the most popular toys with my baby at 4 months.
He loved knawing on it. I think it was good to help sore good. It's easy for babies of 4 months to handle and look at. There are sliding beads to attract babies attention.
Babies can lean on it and skwish it out of shape and it returns back to the right shape again (hence the name).
