Light can be fun , attention-grabbing, educational and even soothing, depending on how its used and its intensity. And, it’s often used in children’s toys for all of these reasons.
Here, I’ll show you a variety of light up toys for children from infants to toddlers and beyond. These toys include lighted musical toys that also teach, colorful lighted balls for bouncing and throwing, and some Pillow Pets that are light up toys that turn into comforting night lights for the little ones who need a bit of help falling asleep.
Kids Preferred Sunshine Light-Up Pull String Musical for Babies
Babies love to touch everything. I remember when my children were babies, their little hands were constantly reaching for something, quite often my hair. Their precious smile was always reward enough for me to allow their curiosity to be satisfied. However, it didn’t take long for me to seek out safe toys for them to investigate and stimulate their senses.
Babies also love music and lights so when I could find a toy that was soft, played music and would also light up, I knew I had the perfect combination.
With this adorable Sunshine Pull-String toy, you or your little one can pull on the little ladybug to hear “You are My Sunshine” while the sun lights up. In addition to being adorable, this musical light-up toy easily attaches to strollers and cribs.

VTech Rhyme and Discover Book
I always like to get a book into a child’s hands as soon as possible. Encouraging a child to learn to read is the first step in a excellent education.
The VTech Rhyme and Discover Book sings and “reads” to your child as they interact with the pages. The words to the songs are all printed on the pages of this electronic book. Therefore, even though your toddler cannot read them yet, having the words printed there actually helps them to start recognizing letters and words. This is a great example of the way we communicate and learn through written text long before actual school years.
This electronic book for babies and toddlers includes 7 popular nursery rhymes and 3 light-up character buttons on the tabs of the pages.
VTech is a world leader in age appropriate learning toys. They offer an extensive line of educational toys, so choose your favorite and get started today.

This light-up toy folds up into a pet or opens to lay flat. Also, the light can be switched to timer mode, so it will shut off on its own after 20 minutes.

Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Soothe and Glow Seahorse
Fisher Price has been a well respected name for generations and they are still a leading company in producing fabulous toys for children. This Ocean Wonders Soothe and Glow Seahorse is an excellent example of why Fisher Price is so highly recommended.
To start with, the Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Soothe and Glow Seahorse is adorably cuddle cute. It is perfect for a bedtime companion! In addition, when his belly is pressed, the Soothe and Glow Seahorse literally glows and plays gentle lullabies and soothing ocean sounds. After 5 minutes, the lights and sounds gently fade out allowing the baby to drop off to sleep without being disturbed.
Neutron Light Up Ball for Children
These little balls are made of very soft plastic and bounce really well. A little member of our family has several. She loves to get them all going at once, giggling as they all go blinking around the room.
The Neutron Light Up Ball is not made for babies or toddles to play with alone. However, it can be a lot of fun if a parent is interacting with the child and wishes to entertain them with a multi colored light show.
