Peekaboo games are universal, because babies love them. They're important for baby in developing a sense of object permanence - they can't see you, but you are there. All our collections include peekaboo games. This one's from Playsongs.

Monkeys from the Livelytime Playsongs collection

DANCE

Dance ~ Five Little Owls

Dancing with a babe-in-arms, or hand in hand with a just-standing toddler is one of the great joys of playing together. Our collections are full of dance opportunities and this one comes from Five Little Owls, our counting song collection.

FINGEPLAY

Fingerplay ~ Mousie Brown
from the Playsongs Grand Exercise collection

The dexterity to manage a fingerplay develops slowly, but you can caress baby's fingers, and tap your toddlers fingertips to support them as they learn how to work their fingers independently. Our collections all have fingerplays. Some are so simple; others have hand actions like this one from Playsongs Grand Exercise.

LEG WALKER

Leg Walker ~ One Two Three a-Leary from the Five Little Frogs collection

Walking a baby or toddler's feet for them as they sit on your knee, supports their developing body awareness. Our leg walkers often have a lift into the air at the end for added fun, like this one from Five Little Frogs.

CROON

Croon ~ The Mailboat
from the Sleepytime Playsongs collection

Croons are a simple, repetitive sing-song type of lullaby. They have a calming effect on a little baby. They also have a calming effect on the parent or carer so they're mutually benefitial, particularly on those wakeful nights. All our collections of songs and rhymes include croons like this from Sleepytime Playsongs.
