If there is one thing that I consider is a MUST in any household with babies and toddlers is an Activity Cube.
An activity cube is a wooden cube that has different games for babies and toddlers to play with. Each side of the cube and the top part has a different activity to play with. Most activity cubes have 4 sides but there are some that have 6 sides like this one.
The activities you get depend on the cube you buy, but whichever one you get you can’t go wrong with this. It will keep you baby busy and entertained for a long time. It will help develop their motor gross and fine skills (depending on the activities you get) plus babies are just drawn to these toys and they enjoy it so much.
My daughter has had ALEX® Toys – My Busy Town (she actually has Busy World but it’s very similar to that one) since she was 6 months and still plays with it every day. She’s just mesmerized by the activities and we even used it to learn the ABC’s once she was older.
She started loving it even more when she was able to stand. It actually helped her learn how to stand since it’s such a sturdy structure.
We’ve had our activity cube for 3 years now and it’s now being used by our second baby. I’m pretty pleased it’s held up so well and it’s definitively a toy worth investing on, especially when you’re having your first kid since all your future kids will be able to play with it too. The best part if when both the baby and my 3 year old are playing with it together and since it has 4 sides, each one get a side.
I really think it is worth the investment because this is one of those toys that you will keep for a long time, until you’re done having kids.
