Today I want to share with you the toy that has kept me from “loosing it” many times as a mother. Finding the right toy for your baby while you’re driving is everything. If you’re like me and cringe at the sound of a crying baby, you’ll do just about anything to keep your baby from crying. I’ve found the best baby toy that every mom needs for their child on car rides.
The best baby toy for car rides is the Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Musical Toy. When my son was 4 months old, I started looking for a good toy to keep him entertained on car rides as well as at home. I turned to Amazon and found their #1 best seller in the Baby category. Yes, among all the baby items, the #1 best seller is this $6.99 musical toy.
Here is what I love about the Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Musical Toy:
- It has 2 sound level settings. We all know that musical baby toys can get quite annoying, so I always turn it on the low sound setting and it makes it more bearable to hear on repeat for hours on end.
- Colorful lights dance across the screen.
- Large, easy to press button.
- The beads on the handle are another great entertaining aspect.
- The toy handle doubles as a chew toy when babies are teething.
- It has 7 total songs.
I keep this toy in my sons car seat and I can almost always guarantee that it will keep him entertained for the majority of the car ride. When I first got him the toy around 4 months he couldn’t push the button himself. Now that he is older he gets so much satisfaction from being able to push the button and have the music and light show turn on.
My son is now 15 months old and still loves this toy. Some reviewers on Amazon claim that their 3 year olds still love the toy, so we’ll see how long this toy is a hit for! Also, there are nearly 7,000 5 star customer reviews on this product on Amazon– that’s a lot of satisfied parents!
If you are a new mom, or have a baby shower to attend, do not hesitate to order this baby toy! It’s on Amazon Prime for less than $7 HERE!
