What are some solid toys for the six- to twelve-month-old set? We need some ideas to advise eager grandparents! Child Rattery will be six months on Christmas Day (and, you'll just have to take my word for it, she is perfect and adorable). Interested grandparents are wondering what to get her for Christmas. Now, on the one hand we don't want a lot of stuff because she is, after all, a baby and we are trying not to overload on toys. We have some hand-me-downs (see list below) and try to let her play with everyday objects. However, I don't want to rob doting grandparents of the opportunity to give a fun gift. Plus, I'm aware that over the next six months there might actually be some good toys or activities that would either be developmentally appropriate, or just super awesome to play with. Can you share some of the things your kids love and that have stood the test of time? Thanks!

Some things we have:
- many board books
- 4,000 stuffed animals (most of them, embarrassingly, belonging to her parents!)
- an exersaucer
- lots of little rattley, chewy thing-a-ma-jigs
- some sort of animal sound whirligig
- a stacking ring tower
- two different "dentist's office toys" (those weird wire sculptures that you move beads along)
- some sort of ladybug on wheels
