And the Winner Is: Lamaze My First Fishbowl

At this age, babies are becoming pros at sitting up on their own, and as they get near 9 months, they may even begin to crawl and attempt to stand. My First Fishbowl, a classic put-in, take-out toy, will help your little one strengthen their abs and back—muscles needed to sit up without support—as they reach for the sea creatures scattered about and put them back in the bowl. Plus, as baby picks up the small, colorful objects, it’ll strengthen dexterity and hand-eye coordination.

What We Love

  • Each easy-to-grasp sea creature features different textures and makes a different sound, from crinkling and rattling to jingling and squeaking
  • The bowl and its transparent walls encourage put-in-take-out play
  • When playtime is over, everything neatly fits into the fishbowl for easy storage
