I think it's good to have some toys around. ben is really into touching and chewing on everything, so we need to have some safe touchable thigns for him. I try to give him household items to play with whenever possible-like wooden spoons, scraps of fabric, etc. I like to put Ben down with a toy and let him explore it on his own, It also makes things like showering, shopping and car rides go more smoothly.
I like simple toys. Most of Ben's toys are old Fisher-Price toys like the ones my husband and I had as small children- stacking rings, the popcorn turtle, the spinning balls, the phone with the face on it. Ben also has lots of rattles and a beach ball, a couple of mobiles, and a couple of busy boxes.
