Talk about value! Your baby gets four critters in one with this roly-poly chime ball. As he presses the ear of each animal, he hears "Woof!" "Meow!" "Oink!" or "Ribbit!" Check out the finger hole on the side, designed to have your poopsie pointing in no time. (6 months and up; ALEX, $25; fatbraintoys.com)
