Magda Gerber said that play objects should be basic, able to be manipulated in many ways and not require adult supervision (although you can be there and involve yourself in play time as much or as little as you want!). Objects should require a child to be active and not passive.  I wanted to quickly put some baby favorites from class here. I will continuously add to this, also, scroll down for my "busier" toy looks for more dire situations :)
