What are some good toys for introducing my baby to different types of animals?

Hi everyone,

I am a first-time mom of a 6-month-old baby and I want to introduce her to different types of animals through toys. I believe it will help her develop her sensory skills and also make her familiar with different animals from an early age. I am looking for suggestions on some good toys that I can use for this purpose.

I would prefer toys that are safe for babies and made of soft materials. It would be great if the toys made different animal sounds, had bright colors, and had different textures to engage my baby's senses. I am also open to toys that have pictures of animals on them as long as they are suitable for young infants.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions!
