You take the whole spinning unit with you. So, toys won’t just dangle from the stroller canopy or car seat, as they can rotate with an accompaniment of the music as well.

Parents, I highly recommend this adorable take along mobile!! It's very versatile, you can make it work just about anywhere. My 3 month old daughter LOVES it! We also have a standard one that only attaches to the crib (mostly) and we love that one as well. Would definitely recommend tiny love mobiles!!

The animals are in black and white which is an appealing color for children. The spinning toys are fascinating. They are a combination of a hedgehog, a fox, and a bird. Playing tunes as the animals spin will calm your baby to sleep.

An Overview On Toys For Cars & Strollers

Busy babies are often on-the-go alongside Mom or Dad. As their little brains are developing oh-so-quickly, they can easily become bored. A bored baby is not a happy baby, leading to fussiness and irritability that can quickly turn a pleasant outing into a stressful one.

Fortunately, there is an abundance of travel toys available that provide entertainment, engagement and education for babies, which all mean peace of mind and even a bit of relaxation for parents. When shopping for a toy that connects to your baby’s car seat or stroller, considering several factors will help you make the best selection.

As with any item you buy for your baby, safety is a top priority for travel toys. These playthings should connect quickly and easily to handles or furnishings without any risk of pinching little fingers or damaging the materials to which they are clipped.

Shopping for stroller or car seat toys from trustworthy brands and reputable retailers is an effective way to ensure you are buying a safe and reliable toy. High-quality items tend to last longer as well, making them budget-friendly purchases when compared even to less expensive toys that might break or fall apart with use.

Since babies have varying needs and abilities at different stages of their first year and beyond, look for toys that will entertain your little one now and in the future. For instance, newborns love to gaze up at interesting, contrasting patterns or bright colors, especially if they spin, rotate or sway with movement. As your baby grows, a toy that can also be grabbed, kicked and chewed on will likely be appreciated.

Look for travel toys that engage multiple senses. A variety of shapes, colors and designs will attract a baby visually and spark brain development. A stroller or car seat toy that plays music, crinkles when grabbed or jingles when batted provides aural stimulation. Toys with diverse textures encourage sensory play and motor skill development, as your baby will want to grab, squeeze, swat and mouth on the playthings.

In addition, parents welcome toys that attach to multiple pieces of equipment. Buying one toy that can connect to everything from a car seat or stroller to a crib, playpen or high chair is cost-effective and saves space.

DYWM Fun Fact

Baby car seats were first introduced in the 1930s. While these made it easier to transport little ones on the road (the alternative was to hold the baby on your lap), they were by no means designed for safety. Most early car seats were essentially boxes that hooked onto the seat to simply contain a young child.

Safety seats for infants came about in the 1960s. Although they were still not up to the standards of today’s car seats, they offered significantly more protection than little ones sitting loose in vehicles had before.

Vehicles were not required to have seat belts until the late 1960s, and state laws requiring passengers to use them didn’t come along until years later.

By 1985, all 50 states had enacted laws requiring the use of restraint systems to protect infants and children (generally under five years old) riding in automobiles.

Considering how historically recent that is, it is safe to say that toys for car seats are truly a modern convenience.

The Toy For Car & Stroller Buying Guide

  • One significant factor you will want to consider when shopping for stroller or car seat toys is how easy it will be to keep them clean. As you well know, babies put everything in their mouths, so being able to wipe away food particles, dirt and especially germs is essential. Look for a toy that you can disinfect without disassembling, if possible.
  • If you decide on a travel toy that plays music, think about finding one that plays multiple tunes. Sure, “The Wheels on the Bus” is an adorable song, but listening to it 57 million times in a row can be grating for even the most zen of parents.
  • Another consideration for musical devices is ease of use. If your baby loves the music but you have to push a button or wind it up to play again each time the song stops, you’ll have a difficult time doing anything else. A car seat or stroller toy that plays a melody continuously for a specific length of time might make life a little easier.
  • Wee ones enjoy interactive toys much more if the toys are slightly challenging yet attainable. If your infant really wants to grab the teething ring or squeeze the crinkly toy but it is constantly just out of reach, you are likely to wind up with a loudly frustrated and grumpy baby.
  • A travel toy that has multiple unique activities will keep your little one’s attention much longer. It will remain a favorite as your baby grows and develops, as well. For instance, a rattle, a mirror, a crinkly toy and a teether attached to a stroller activity set will be entertaining for infants who can peek into the mirror or bat at the rattle and will also be enjoyable for an older baby who can grab, spin, shake and twist the toys.
  • Every type of plaything has the capability of becoming an educational toy. Keep your eyes peeled for activity sets that encourage fine motor skills, sensory interaction, hand-eye coordination and vision development.
