The Rankings

Flensted Mobiles Dinghy Regatta Mobile
Rank & Style Approved


Flensted Mobiles Dinghy Regatta Mobile

THE MOBILE: A mobile is a magnificent way to engage a baby as they spend their time lulling in and out of sleep in a crib. We love the primary colors of this delicate, sailing-themed work of art.

Green Sprouts Sprout Ware Stacking Cups

STACKING CUPS: Stacking cups offer a great sensory experience that engages babies' thinking skills. These fun stacking toys also float (perfect for bath time!) and fit together for easy storage.

HAHA Baby Car Seat Crib Travel Toy

CAR SEAT ACTIVITY TOYS: A toy set featuring aural and tactile experiences will keep your baby busy and entertained for a long time. It's the perfect first-year toy for your developing baby and a wonderful thing to clip to a car seat during those long drives. 

Homi Baby Organic Wood Baby Rattle

THE RATTLE: A simple rattle is not only captivating due to its sound, but the wood on this particular organic rattle is soft enough to be gentle on babies' gums.

Hello, Bugs! Baby Book

BLACK AND WHITE BOOKS: High contrast black-and-white patterns with pops of shimmery color are vibrant enough even for infants to see and zone in on.

Lovevery The Play Gym

THE BABY GYM: A smartly designed baby gym features development zones as well as a play mat that can reveal or conceal different areas to prevent overstimulation, teach focus, sound making, encourage sensory exploration, hiding and finding, and colors.

Manhattan Toy Skwish Activity Toy

THE SKWISH ACTIVITY TOY: With all sorts of interesting movable components, a skwish toy is easy for a little one to grab and keep ahold of. 

Ike & Leo Teething Toys

TEETHER TOYS: Don't skimp on teether toys that you can put in the freezer. Your baby's little hands can loop into these toys while he or she pleasantly teeths on the soothing, cooling BPA free plastic. 

Gund Baby Animated Flappy The Elephant Plush Toy

INTERACTIVE PLUSH TOY: It may look like a stuffed animal, but it's so much more! Pressing the left foot initiatives a game of peekaboo, while pressing the other starts a sing-along song. 

VTech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker

SIT-TO-STAND WALKER: Support your babe as they learn to stand up and, eventually, walk! This walker has a removable activity panel allowing your baby to interact with the toy from the start but can be attached to the walker as they grow and begin to walk.
