My son is 5 months old and he has never been interested in toys ... I have a manhattan wooden toy/bead thingy and he loves it. He loves a baby gym that's kick and play piano and thats really it.
For xmas my son got a really obscene (from grandparents) amount of toys that are ALL plastic and most are actually quite loud and have flashing lights. My gut instinct tells me that these are not good for my son and do not promote learning or whatever ... and most studies I read say they aren't good and most have a noise level that's dangerous for babies.
In desperate times, like when I'd like to prepare dinner or something and he is not interested in being carried/in my carrier at that moment ... I'll give him a toy and put him on his wool mat next to me in the kitchen and let him play.
What do you do in those types of situations? When he needs something to entertain him?
Is it too late if he is showing interest in the toys???
I found all these toys that are montessori and waldorf on Etsy and will replace with those. I guess I'll donate the ones I'm getting rid of to a church or Salvation army.
What do you think? Any advice? Is it ok to get rid of them? will he miss them?
