It’s never too early to introduce your baby to these glorious prehistoric beasts. Dinosaurs might not roam the earth anymore, but kids (and adults) find them fascinating. These dinosaurs inspire imaginations and make you wonder what life and the planet was like that long ago. Your little ones might not be asking those big questions yet. They’re still mastering sitting up by themselves, crawling and maybe baby food. That doesn’t mean you can’t try to inspire a love of dinosaurs at a very early age. Dinosaurs are also super cute—when they’re in toy form. If you’re already got a Stegosaurus-inspired nursery, you might as well fully commit and get your babe some toys to match. You might be raising a future paleontologist.
We found the best dinosaur toys for babies. These picks are adorable and designed with babies in mind, so they are all chewable. One of our picks will inspire your kids to chew and chomp like a T-Rex, so they can soothe the aches and pains of teething. Another pick could be your baby’s favorite companion. This plush dino is snuggly, highly engaging and chewable. Our last pick can put dinos in your babe’s field of vision. They won’t be able to pronounce Pterodactyl for a long time, but they will be able to get acquainted with them visually.

This little Stegosaurus, made out of non-toxic, food-grade silicone, will soothe your baby’s sore sums. The mitt also has a T-Rex, Triceratops and other dinos. It makes a crinkling sound that amuses your baby. You simply put your baby’s hand into the mitt. It keeps them from chewing on their hands and from scratching themselves on the face. If you want to clean the mitts, you can machine wash on cold and air dry.
3. gebra Stroller Toys
Your baby will have visions of dinosaurs dancing through his or her head with these crib toys. The four dinos, which include a T-Rex and Pterodactyl, can be hung from strollers, cribs or play mats. The top part of the dinos have wind chimes and the bellies have squeakers to engage your little one. At the bottom for the dinos, there’s a teether for your babe to chew on. Whichever teether he or she chews on the most will be your baby’s favorite dinosaur.
