Here, the best gifts for 2-month-olds.

Baby GUND Animated Flappy The Elephant Stuffed Animal Baby Toy Plush

Press the left foot for an interactive game of peek-a-boo complete with flapping ears, then press the right foot for another song with Flappy’s ears moving in time to the music. Safe for newborns on up. 

Manhattan Toy Whoozit Rattle and Squeaker

A thoughtful gift to give to the parent of an infant is one that focuses on sensory development. At two months, a baby is becoming more interested in texture, bold prints, and shapes, which is why Mr. Whoozit is a classic favorite that touches on all these points.

The toy measures 8.5 inches and is designed in vivid colors and patterns that will help your baby focus. Crisp textures and sounds such as grasping loops, squeakers, and crinkle paper will teach baby to touch and grasp. There is also a self-discovery mirror that will have your baby staring at the image that looks back at them. It also has a funny looking face on it (babies are hardwired to recognize and relate to faces from birth). This soft toy can be attached to the crib to keep baby stimulated as well as used when traveling in a stroller or car seat.
