At two months old, my daughter is slowly becoming more aware of the world around her. She is starting to sleep less and has become more active in response to different sights and sounds. I had been in search for small toys that she would find entertaining and would help with her basic sensory development. I've found a great toy in Freddie the Firefly. It is a soft plush firefly that is made up of bright primary colors that babies find visually stimulating. The toy itself rattles when moved and other great features include a squeaker, a mirror, rings that clink together, and a ladybug teether that can be tucked away. My favorite part is the crinkle wings. When you touch the wings they make a really loud crinkling noise that my daughter loves. The toy has a plastic clip on top so you can attach it to your child's crib, car seat, stroller, etc.
Although she is too young to grasp at toys and truly interact physically, she already loves Freddie. When I hold him up in front of her she always has a big smile on her face and she just loves to stare at him. When I move the toy up and down or side to side, she always follows it with her eyes. She has a very short attention span at this age but Freddie holds her attention quite well. I believe it is the bright colors that she finds so fascinating, and she likes all of the different sounds you can create. I know this will become one of her favorite toys when she gets a little older and I'm already thinking of buying her another to keep at grandma's house.
