They are sitting, rolling and beginning to scoot, on their way to crawling? Any great toy suggestions? Thanks,

What can I do next?

Congrats on your double blessing! I recommend the toys from Tiny Love. Their website is great because it is split by age and developmental stage, and has developmentally appropriate ways to stimulate babies.

Stacking cups are great, and help work on motor skills.

Xylophone, musical instruments.
The LeapFrog fridge magnet sets are fun. We have the Fridge Farm and the Alphabet. ALso, Baby Tad from Leapfrog is fun.
I think my first was about 8 months when we got our first Fisher Price Little People stuff. We got the farm house. It has been played with at least a couple times a week for 4 years! There are doors to open and close, holes/windows/spaces to poke the animals through, etc. It's been neat to add on as the kids have grown -- they're great for when kids begin pretend and imaginative play. Now we have Noah's Ark, a couple of shcool busses, the pink house, playground, some pirate stuff, etc. Both kids get together now play all sorts of things!

Fisher Price has a little house called the Learning Home that has a door that can open for them to crawl through and lots of things for them to do, touch, see. I think they have a new one out too that is more of a kitchen, but has the same type of stuff on it. We got the house for my daughter when she was about 9 months old and she still plays with it nearly every day (she is 22 months old now). I got the suggestion from Mamasource when she was that age and people all said their kids still played with it even when they were 3-4 years old. It is a little on the expensive side, but well worth the money because of how much she uses it.

Beyond that, I would second the little people idea. My daughter loves them. Blocks are great....Fisher Price has Peek-a-blocks that are awesome. They have little animals and stuff in them and they have tons of toys that go with them. We have a train, an elephant pull toy that they can use when they start walking and a farm. They also have balls that are see through as well (I think they're called roll arounds). I would look on Fisher Price's website and get some ideas. My daughter seems to love their toys. Even wooden blocks with letters and colors on them are great too. Shape sorters are good for their age too.

Sorry to ramble on. I hope you get some ideas that work for you. These toys I mentioned are my daughter's favorites and she has played with them extensively. Best of luck! Have fun shopping!
