Rattles and mobiles may be adorable, but baby toys can actually be a lot more educational. We've partnered with Target to highlight gifts that help little ones learn.

For something so tiny, babies sure can be hard to please. Without being able to articulate why they like something, it's tricky to tell which toys will become new favorites and which will be abandoned on the floor of the nursery immediately.

Instead of just picking the cutest toy and hoping for the best, opt for these tried-and-true baby gifts. Interactive elements, vibrant patterns, and touchable textures not only help make these toys more appealing to babies, but they also help with their development — something that new parents are sure to appreciate.
