I'm looking for toys that can help my baby with their sense of rhythm, any suggestions?

Hello everyone!

My baby is 8 months old and I have noticed that they seem to have a good sense of rhythm and they love moving to music. I want to encourage this and help develop their sense of rhythm further. Can anyone recommend some toys or activities that can help with this?

Thank you in advance!

Hey there,

I recommend getting some sensory toys for your baby that have built-in music or sound effects. My daughter absolutely loves her soft, plush toys that play different lullabies, gentle sounds, and even nursery rhymes. It's been great for her development, as not only does it improve her sense of rhythm, but it also stimulates her senses and helps her learn cause and effect.

Besides the toys, something that has worked well for us is singing songs and rhymes together and clapping our hands to the beat. This helps her develop a sense of rhythm and timing while also being an interactive activity for us to do together.

I hope you find these suggestions helpful. Good luck!



I suggest getting your baby some toy instruments like a xylophone or a mini piano. My daughter loves banging on her xylophone and playing little tunes. It's been a great way to encourage her to explore different sounds and rhythms.

We also like to play movement games with music, like pretending to be different animals to the beat of a song or marching together in time to a drumbeat. It's been a lot of fun and has helped my daughter develop her sense of rhythm and coordination.

I hope you find these ideas helpful and that your baby continues to enjoy music and rhythm in the years to come!



One great toy that I recommend to help improve your baby's rhythm is a set of musical shakers. My son loves shaking them in time to music, and it's been great for his hand-eye coordination as well as his rhythm and timing.

Another activity that has been a hit in our household is playing simple games like peekaboo or tickling to the rhythm of a song. It encourages my baby to move and react in time with the music, and it's a lot of fun for both of us.

I hope these ideas help, and good luck with your little one's musical development!


Hi there,

My advice would be to get a baby-friendly karaoke machine. It's been a great way for my son to develop his sense of rhythm while also having fun singing along to his favorite songs. The machine also records his musical attempts, which we find really cute, and it's perfect to help foster his musical abilities.

Another way that we've encouraged our son's developing sense of rhythm is through musical playdates. We like to invite other babies over and have a little jam session with toy instruments and shakers. It's a great way for them to learn from each other, share different musical experiences, and develop their timing together through musical play.

I hope these suggestions help! Enjoy making music with your little one.


Hi there,

I would recommend getting some musical toys for your baby, such as a small keyboard or drum set. My son loves his drum set and he has so much fun playing along to music or just making his own beats. It has definitely improved his sense of rhythm and coordination.

Another fun activity is dancing together to music. I like to hold my baby and move her arms and legs to the beat of the music. It's a great bonding experience and also helps with their sense of rhythm.

Hope this helps!


Hello to all parents out there,

I would recommend getting a set of stacking cups that play musical notes when they are stacked together. My little one loves playing with it and it's been a great activity to improve her coordination and sense of rhythm.

Another activity that you can do with your baby is clapping hands and tapping feet together to music. It's a simple activity that is great for bonding and helps your baby to develop a sense of rhythm and timing while enjoying quality time together.

I hope these suggestions work for you and your baby. Enjoy creating deeper bonds and developing your baby's sense of rhythm!
