Katie has lots of clothes since she is so blessed with hand-me-downs. While we like to keep the number of toys out at a given time to a dull roar, there are some developmentally-stimulating toys we think she'd benefit from. In general, we like toys that promote creative play (i.e., they can be used in a variety of ways with the child's imagination) and will last for a while as Katie's skills and interests change. Here are some ideas:
Katie also has an Amazon wishlist with some non-toys on it.
If you're curious, one of the websites I read and liked recently was the TRUCE website (Teachers Resisting Unhealthy Children’s Entertainment) and their Infant & Toddler Play, Toys & Media Action Guide PDF. Their perspective and recommendations really resonated with me in terms of the kinds of toys and experiences I have been trying to provide for Katie and want to continue to provide.
