What do you guys plan on getting your babies for Christmas (or any other holday you may be celebrating)? Does anybody have any toys for babies that they'd like to reccomend to others? I was thinking about buying my daughter the Leapfrog Learn & Groove Musical Table, the Fisher Price Sing a Long Stage, and the Baby Einstein Color Kaleidoscope Discovery Center. Does anybody have these? Are they worth buying? I am for sure going to buy her the Leapfrog Colors and Tunes Octopus, I fell in love with it when I saw it on a website for some reason lol. Any good suggestions on any other toys?

Since our little Kelly bean will only be going on 4 months at Christmas and she has Down syndrome she is a little bit behind in development (she can't hold her head up all the time by herself) she won't be doing her own "opening". So hubby and I came up with a plan.... We are each going to shop for three things for her without telling each other what we got her. That way there is some suprise to what she got. (Plus we get to open more gifts - LOL) We set the limit on number of gifts cause 1) she won't know the difference and we already have SO SO SO much baby stuff and 2) our family is shopping for her too and we want to lower the risk of getting her something they did.
That said, I LOVE all the suggestions. We are actually shopping from the Toys R US differently abled catalog. The toys there promote stimulation for all the different senses. I can't help thinking that all the educational play toys on that catalog would be good for all babies.... I mean if you can give your baby the best start no matter the situation, why wouldn't you, right? Might be a good place to shop for all babies. IDK, just a thought.
I have 3 older "average" children and I am shopping age appropriate toys for them in that catalog as well. if you go to their website scroll all the way to the bottom of the page and on the left side is the icon for this specific catalog. What's really nice about shopping in that catalog, is that you can sort it by skill you would like to improve. And best of all - they are regular toys that you would buy for any kid, just the learning skills are pointed out for you and you can buy them "in-store" or online.
