In the vast universe of baby toys, selecting ones that captivate and enhance stroller time can be a delightful challenge.
If you’ve been in search of the perfect toy to accompany your baby’s stroller rides, ensuring both safety and engagement, you’re on the right path.
Drawing upon expertise in child development and toy reviews, I’ve handpicked a list of stroller toys that stand out in form and function.
Step into this guide with me, and let’s unveil top-tier options that promise to elevate your baby’s stroller adventures.
How Do I Choose The Best Stroller Toys?
Particularly for new parents, the massive range of stroller and car seat toys in stock in any baby store can be overwhelming.
Your highest priority will be to keep baby safe as well as entertained, so be sure that any toys purchased online are from reputable sellers and suitable for the age of your baby.
You will want your baby’s stroller toys to be baby friendly, ie bpa free, made from non toxic materials and stringently safety tested. Babies will grab and mouth their toys, so check that any infant toys you buy are soft and lightweight.
We like multi use stroller toys, that can also be used as a crib and car seat toy. We also like stroller and car seat toys that appeal to baby’s senses in a range of ways- that might be a built in wind chime, rattles, a baby safe mirror, a teether or a squeaker.
The best stroller toys will also be easy to clean- kids do tend to drool on, spit up and drop toys frequently so you will want to be able to machine wash or wipe down baby items.

Music and Sounds
Music is popular in baby toys, with many parents finding that lights and music keep their babies entertained for longer.
Many stroller toys feature squeaker toys, rattles and crinkle toys that will delight younger babies- without the need for batteries. These are a better option for parents who dont like to hear repetitive tunes.
The benefits of musical toys for babies are well documented, so it’s not surprising that they are popular.
A Range of Textures
Babies love to explore textures, and often explore using their mouths. Plush dangling toys, a bb squeaker and teether toys will help keep your baby happier for longer in their stroller or car seat.
Hanging toys will keep younger babies, who are not yet old enough to pull and hold toys, happy. Opt for high contrast toys for newborns, since their visual development is still in the early stages at that age.
Mirrors are also a great feature.
Easily Attached to Car Seats, Strollers and Cribs
Easy attachment means that a toy that your child will enjoy can be easily moved between the car seat and pram, making life easier for parents.
This way you can also change your stroller and car seat toy regularly to ensure that your child doesn’t lose interest.
