9 month grandson toys for grandparents house?

lpinkmountainMay 4, 2012

We would like to have more visits with BF's grandson and so for our first official visit I'd like to set up a small play mat in the living room with some toys appropriate for a 9 month old very smart, active boy. Grandad doesn't get to see his grandson very often so I'm looking for things that will be maximum fun for the baby and give lots of interaction with grandad. Books we have a lot of, my hobby is collecting children's books. I want to keep it simple, I don't want to get a whole bumch of elaborate things. I know that a set of pots and pans and a wooden spoon would probably keep him happy as could be but since the visits are rare and short, I wanted to have a little something extra available. But I don't want to look like I'm trying to impress anyone or spoil him either. Just a couple of nice things that we could keep around the house for any future visits. Any recommendations?

My 9-month-old grandson enjoys this Laugh & Learn Musical Table. It has different settings to make the various activities musical or educational in other areas--including learning a little Spanish. My grandson pulls himself up to stand next to it, and "cruises" around, trying the different activities.

I recently ordered this Hide & Squeak Egg Game for him, but as it hasn't arrived yet I can't comment on it. The reviews are good, though.
