I love toys that grow with your lil one - it makes shelling out the big bucks the first time seem that much more worth it! The Yookidoo Kaleido Disk ($60) is one of those great toys that comes with all of the necessary pieces to make it work with your tot from birth through the entire first year. The toy's basic premise is that it opens up the kaleidoscope so babies can enjoy the beautiful colors and shapes, without having to close one eye like you do with a traditional one.
The two-part toy features the opened kaleidoscope with four CD-like disks that vary the colors, shapes and music. This part of the toy can be attached to crib rails or changing tables and used on the floor during tummy time. It also snaps into a base "discovery center" where activity-seekers can find squeakers, spinners, clickers and more to occupy their hands while the watching the images move in the main part of the toy. With multiple speed options, the toy is a great find for those looking to stimulate their babies beyond the basic mobile.
