Car seat toys are great for entertaining babies. Whether you're going on a road trip or driving across town, it's great to have something on hand to keep your infant's interest. Toy bars, mini-mobiles, and clip-on toys are all great ideas to keep your infant occupied on the road. However, though it may be tempting to leave items like toys attached to the car seat while en route to your destination, any hard objects that might become loose and act as a projectile in your car isn't safe to leave attached to your child's car seat. If you have any car seat toys for your baby, make sure they're secure. Otherwise, it's better to leave them off and attach them when you're out of the car or wheeling your baby around in a stroller.
One way to solve this dilemma is by picking out some soft toys you can attach to your infant's car seat. Lamaze makes a great soft, Clutch Cube ($15) that lets little ones interact by touch, sight, sound, and smell. Your little one will love playing with the jingling chimes, exploring the peek-a-boo flaps, or smelling the cube's apple scent. It's appropriate for infants from three months to toddlers.
