My Baby Loves to Play with Dangerous Things

My 8 month year old seems to home in on anything dangerous. His two particular favourites are wires and carrier bags. I remember Blake being exactly the same when he was small, he had a penchant for daddy's tools.

Obviously I can't let baby Oakley play with wires for fear he may get electrocuted but there are alternatives I have found which he seems to like just as much. For Christmas we gave him an Owl Winkle from Manhattan Toy. The Winkle has been a popular baby toy for a few years now and the owl version is a cute new take on it. It make a rattle noise when you shake it and has lots of colourful rubber wires looping out from the center. Not only does it give Oakley safe wires that he can play with but it is great for him to chew on while he's teething. As he gets a little older the wooden bead frame from Melissa and Doug will give him a new challenge whilst fulfilling his need for wires.


Carrier bags form a challenge, if he sees one, it doesn't matter if it has shopping in it he'll just empty that out and start to play with it. I think part of the fascination is the rustling sound. The best toy he has with rustle paper noises is a baby book called 'Sunny Days' also from Manhattan Toy. It also flaps about satisfyingly when he shakes it. It has a handle just the same as a bag and lots of things that he can pull off it.
