This baby seated activity center, was one of the best gifts we got for our daughter, she loved exploring all the different activities from music to lights to pop up toys! But more importantly this toy was around for a long time, and as she grew, we could take parts of the activity center away, to encourage each step of her development. It was such a fantastic toy that grew with her.

As she began to stand and walk, it divides to allow her to use the activity center as a balance and encourages her to walk around, this was one of the most used baby toys my daughter had.

The Best Baby Gift Ever - Best Buy for Baby

I think the most used gift we ever got was our small childs table, yes we got it when my daughter was 6 months old, and I thought a bit strange, however that small childs table and chair set took us from learning how to eat her snacks, to stacking her cups, to drawing her first picture. To writing her name. Oh and a few Dressup shows too!

In fact we never got rid of it until after she went to school, so If you are wanting a great gift idea for a baby, then this is a little out of the ordinary, but one of the most useful and well recived gifts for toddlers.

      Good to see your unique content in this lens. I do agree with you that it is sometimes best to hear what real moms are saying about their children as they are the ones that know their children the best. Also, good call on mentioning the 'stackable rings'. It's hard to go wrong with stackables, especially if you are trying to help develop the child's reaching and other motor skills. Thanks for the info.!

      Fisher-Price is certainly a high quality brand - I love those little activity tables (I like to play with them too). And my, that stacking ring tower has really endured, eh. Like Lego, some of these things just cannot be improved upon. Great lens, love the selection.
