  6. Disney Princess Activity Storybook
    •  6.99
    •  Birth+

    The Disney Princess Activity Storybook is a Cinderella-themed infant toy that looks like a real book so little ones can turn the pages. There isn't a real story, though, so its main function is as a toy, not as a book you read to your baby. The pages are soft and have bright colors and patterns. The book is small, but it has a bunch of different features, such as a plastic teether, which is great for little ones who want to put everything into their mouths. Among the pages there are also tags on the top, ruffles on a skirt, little knots for grabbing, a peek-a-boo flap and a squeaking last page. There is also a clip so that parents can attach the book to a diaper bag, stroller, or car seat.

    •  2+

    With the Little Mommy Bubbly Bathtime baby doll, kids can experience the fun of bathtime, just like a real mom or dad. The Bubbly Bathtime doll has color-change stains on its stomach. Place the doll inside the pink tub to get the doll ready for a bath. Pour child-safe bubble solution (sold separately) into the tub's reservoir and pump bubbles into the tub. You can also fill the reservoir with water. Fill the bird-shaped pouring cup with warm water and dump the water over the doll to rinse it off and watch the color-change spots disappear. (The spots return when the doll reaches room temperature again.) Once bathtime is over, kids can bundle up the doll in the bird-themed bath towel to dry off.
