Roo will be 7 nearly 8 months old at Christmas and I'm clueless! He loved the ball pool at baby sensory so I'm getting him that and a gloworm but what else?

There is a teddy called scout and you programme all the things your lo likes and his name and it sings. Also has a night mode on it which plays a tune and it sends them to sleep. I got the Girly version called violet for my lo and she loved it and still does. How about a crawling ball too, seen it in toys r us but sure you can get them from anywhere, the timing will probably be pretty good for your lo to encourage him to crawl. Or if he already is, he will have fun chasing it! We used to buy toys from 6-12 months too coz I'm not a fan of buying things apart from special occasions so we got my lo an activity table and a walker at that age. She still used the walker although not for the main function at 6 months coz the activity bit Seperates from the frame and then it really helped with her walking, she walked at 11 months. Also she used her activity table to pull herself up and encouraged her to stand. Xx

Just a note that I'm not sure if the baby walker from that site is a reputable company, just showing you do you get an idea. We had the pink version but I can't remember where we got it from-I think it was Argos xx

Oooh I'll be interested to hear ideas as Lily will be 7 months too. I'm thinking of getting her a crawl ball, and OH wants to get her a ride on hedgehog from mamas and papas (link below) - prob get a second hand one though cos they are very pricy. I also wondered about some kind of walker with buttons to press/ building bricks on as she'll still be able to play with it even before she starts walking. Oh, and I like the idea of a xylophone too!!!

Perhaps I don't need anymore ideas, I'll end up spending a small fortune if I'm not careful

My LO will be 6 months I've already started. I've got the vtech first steps walker. I'm gonna get him a FO apptivity case for our iPhone, a vtech crawling ball, follow me Fred (we have a weiner dog do its perfect, and a sea turtle that projects an ocean scene on the ceiling and plays music (his nursery is in a beach theme), an outdoor swing, and a baby pool. That's about it for now.

My daughter is seven months now and loves this:

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Produc...er/9087464.htm

She can stand up at it and cruise around it and play with the balls, she can set off the lights and music herself and she likes just banging on it like a drum. She hasn't yet got the 'point' of the game in letting the balls cascade down and then putting them all back, so she will grow into.

On a smaller scale she's got one of these balls which she plays with every single day for ages:

it's really easy for her to grab and she laughs so much if you shake it. Very pleasant to touch.

Her other favourite things are a cheap silver emergency blanket (from the pound shop) which makes a really loud crinkly noise, any kind of bath toy, stacking cups and any soft toy with taggies and labels on to investigate.

Well my daughter will be 11 months at Christmas, so whilst she might not understand what Christmas is, she will certainly be able to join in with some of the fun.

Also there's pleasure in treating the people you love, and if (like most of us, I would guess!) you don't have loads of money or don't want to get into the habit of buying new toys every week it's a good excuse to get them something you know they will enjoy.

Plus they are part of the family and I wouldn't want them left out of a family occasion even if she wouldn't understand. And for families with other kids they would wonder why the baby was 'forgotten'.

I dunno, lots of reasons really! Why buy the adults presents, since they can just save up and buy themselves things at any time of the year? It's just a nice thing to do with people you love.

Interesting! I had never thought of buying my baby a xmas present, cos he wouldnt understand why. I mean, he will get treats, just not specifically on xmas day. When he's older, yes.

Fair enough! To each their own.

Our family is a bit christmas mad tbh, we have oodles of Christmas traditions, my parents decorate their house like santa's workshop, everyone gets very excited. There would be an outcry if I didn't do anything for the baby! And I think even if I didn't get her a present other family members would, because they wouldn't want anyone to think she was being left out.
