What are the best gifts for kids by age?

Infants to 6-months-old

Sound and color will be important elements in the perfect toy.

It may seem most difficult to find a toy for an infant, but at this age, babies are pretty easy to please. They love bright colors and looking at the people around them, as well as discovering their own hands and feet. Their physical abilities limit the items that are suitable for them—they can lift their heads, react to sounds, and try to taste just about every object. So, colorful toys that involve sounds (from rattles to songs) are ideal. Even at this age, parents can begin reading to their children; so, rhyming books are also a good idea.
