Being new parents at Christmas, we had no clue what kind of toy to buy for Anna (she was about 2 months old at the time). One day I saw a commercial on tv for Playskool's Discovery Dome and I thought - that's the gift.
It was sold out at Target until after Christmas but we bought it in January since the age range started at 3 months. 3 months!! The advertising sure fooled me. Anna is now 7 months old and she is for the first time inside of the Discovery Dome and playing around. Now I need to figure out what gifts are good for a 8 month old :).
