7/23/12 8/31/09 Crib Toys To Keep Them Busy in Bed August 31, 2009 by Rebecca Gruber 5 An Aquarium What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! An aquarium, like the Fisher Price® Ocean Wonders Aquarium With Remote Control" ($40) combines white noise, visual stimulation and some nice tunes for baby to hear. For newborns, the aquarium provides soothing music to help them to sleep, but for more active infants, turning the music on and off themselves will keep them busy. A Play Center What’s Your Reaction? Share this reaction with your friends! A play center, like Tiny Love's Developlay ($40), attaches right to the crib's rails to provide curious babes with plenty of knobs to push, pull, spin and grasp. As tots are able to sit on their own, there are more than 20 activities to keep them occupied when they wake with the roosters. Other Babies What’s Your Reaction?
