    There are all kinds of toys for 6mo+. You have to look around, and remember that he will grow into them!
    Lots of activity toys, and toys that show him cause and effect (like when he hits something it plays music and lights up).
    Lots of balls and toys he can play with while crawling around.

    I know at 3mo he doesn't seem like he will ever play with toys that do that much, but trust me.. mine never wants to sit still! They change alot in just a few short months; so just give yourself an excuse to go shopping and look around!! You will find all kinds of neat toys that will be 6mo+

    I agree with this statement :lol: dont limit yourself to just 6mo stuff either, get a look at the 9mo+ aswell. That way you will have lots of entertaining things until she turns a year old (when you can get 12mo+..hehe)!

    I would recommend woolworths if you have one in your town. We just got my nephew 3 different toys from there today and he loves them. They will keep him amused for a good few months. He is 6 and a half months old now. They are quite reasonably priced too. We got him a moving train with bricks today for £19.99 and it should of been £29.99. Bargain when you see the smile on his face once it starts lol

    I'm not going to aim for Christmas as a time to buy Alasdair stuff. I'll go to an NCT nearly new sale at the beginning of the year and see what stuff I can pick up. Also planning on joining the toy library. I figure he's not really going to know what's happening this christmas after all.

    I'm probably an awful mother for not really caring. I should probably get him something good. I love a photo opportunity too!

    You're not an awful mother, you're a practical one!

    A skint one more like! Someone on here said they were going to wrap up nappies/wipes...I might do that. Or even wrap up the toys he's already got. Wonder if he'll notice!

    :rofl: I couldn't think of anything she doesn't already have that is worth buying so I'm considering wrapping up the boxes of all the stuff she already has.. :rofl:

    You'll probably find her in a box giggling :) I think the old adage (sp, if it's even the right word....) is true that kids prefer the boxes to what's inside them most of the time!

    We're getting Marlowe a backpack carrier. She loves her front carrier and she'll be getting bigger (she'll be 6 months too), so we're getting the one that goes on the back.

    We just bought Flissy a push along trike from Mothercare. It's for 10 months + and she's 8, but she absolutely loves it. It means I have to spend almost every waking hour when I'm not at work pushing her around the park, though.

    I would highly recommend it right up there with a jumperoo.

    Here's a pic.
