Must Have Baby Toys for Your Spring Vacation

Spring vacation season is upon us, and it’s time to put together your packing list. Traveling with baby can be fun, but you’ll want to be sure you bring along only the best baby toys to keep the little one entertained. Here are our recommendations for the baby toys you must have, no matter where your spring travels are taking you.

Organic Baby Security Blankets - Estella

Entertaining Baby with Estella’s Security Blanket

Every baby needs a security blanket, but what if your baby’s blanket could double as a baby toy? These adorable blankets from Estella do just that. Use them to keep a younger infant occupied during your flight or road trip. Toddlers can use them to keep themselves busy. When it’s time for a nap, they can use this extra-soft lovey as a snuggle blanket. Hand-knit in Peru with 100% organic cotton, these blankets come in four character styles (elephant, octopus, bunny, or whale), so you are sure to find one your baby will love. You can also purchase them as part of a baby gift set that includes a matching baby rattle and hat, all made with organic cotton.

Baby rattles are also a great baby toy choice for travel, and Estella has some great options. Their line of rattles for babies are handmade with the same soft Peruvian organic cotton that they use for their blankets. They are available in a range of styles, from animals to New York, Seattle & other landmarks. These will keep your baby engaged while you are sightseeing, lounging and shopping on vacation. Perfect for little fingers, these are great rattles for infants because they are non-jarring and exquisitely soft. These can also be purchased as part of a baby gift set with coordinating hats, blankets, and rompers. They are also machine washable for easy cleaning.

Stuffed toys are a perfect choice to pack when traveling with baby as they are great for both cuddling and playing, and they’re easy to pack. Hazel Village has a charming collection of handmade stuffed toys, including animals and baby dolls. They are handmade with organic cotton and hand embroidered. You can have these lovely toys personalized for an additional charge. Melissa and Doug are another good choice when looking for the perfect stuffed toy. Though they are not handmade, their selection of life-like plush animals are sure to please any infant. Estella’s collection of handmade baby toys also includes an enchanting assortment of stuffed toys. You can choose from characters such as mermaids and superhero animals. These are organic baby toys, made with the same organic cotton that make all our products so soft and luxurious.

Small wooden toys are also a great distraction while traveling, so they can be a good choice to take with you on your spring vacation. The Land of Nod is a good source for wooden toys that are safe for a baby’s mouth. All their wooden baby toys are made with chemical-free wood, and only non-toxic water-based paints and vegetable dyes are used. Many are even made with local, sustainable wood. Their sensory toys and teethers are sure to keep baby busy for hours.

Wherever your travels take you this spring, be sure to take along some of our recommended baby toys in your carry-on luggage. Keeping baby entertained with safe, soothing toys can make for a less stressful travel experience for the whole family.
