Going out for a stroll with your baby or toddler is excited for both of you, especially if it`s your first baby.
Your baby or toddler loves to see the outside world other than home. It’s always good to take fresh air.
If you have your baby facing you, they usually just see you and sometimes they can get bored, and this can even happen to your toddler who is sitting down.
When babies or toddlers are bored they tend to sleep or even some of them get irritated and cry.
That’s why it’s good to be able to entertain them. You can do this by yourself or use other means.
Stroller arch toys can be used to get your baby or toddler entertained while you are doing something else, shopping, or talking to friends you meet outside.
Arch toys can also be used at home, when your baby or toddler is playing on the floor or when they are on the bed.
Why are Stroller Arch Toys Entertaining?
When your baby or toddler is growing health professionals always advise you to show them images of colours, shapes, or other educational methods so that your baby gets educated, and at the same time busy which makes them happy.
When you’re out with your child it doesn’t have to be a boring stroll it can be entertaining for both you and your baby.
Stroller Arch toys don’t come with the stroller, you usually buy them separately and they differ in size, colour, shapes, and material.
It can be sun, star, moon toys that have smiley faces drawn on them and animals.
Some of the toys even have music boxes or other sounds like animals and some toys don’t.
It’s up to you as a parent to decide what would be entertaining for your baby. It also depends on your child’s age.
If it’s a newborn up to 6 months then you should buy something that will be suitable for them and not harm them. For baby’s, it’s good to buy something soft and not hard, something that they chew on or touch without harming them.
If you want to have sound toys, which sometimes the material can be hard it’s good that you always hang them.
If the arch toy is used for your toddler then it doesn’t necessarily have to be soft, but you can still have a soft one depend on their age. I will always advise you to hang it.
If your baby or toddler sees and hears the toys it always keeps them busy, entertained and educated, and therefore happy.
They won’t get irritated and cry. Your child’s brain develops quickly which helps them a lot later on when they are learning shapes, colours, and even sounds.
Even grown-ups get entertained when they see images of shapes or whatever it may be.
It’s therefore important to buy these arch toys for your baby, and there are, of course, different prices. Taking a stroll with your child can be entertaining and educational if you want it to be.
Below I will mention some stroller arch toys that I consider to be good, base on the research I have done.

Frequently Asked Questions.
How Do I Keep My Baby Entertained in a Stroller?
Keeping your baby entertained in a stroller involve many things. Like I mentioned above it can be you who does it or your find other means.
You can always talk to your baby, which you might ask sound crazy because they won’t understand a single word coming outside your mouth.
It’s still useful and will make them listen and steer at you. I have done this a lot with my baby. Talking and making faces and keep them busy.
Of course, pram toys are another solution. Buy pram toys that have rattles, multiple colours and keep it simple as well. Give them things they are similar to.
If it’s the moon, sun, etc.
You can buy clips to hang them on the canopy when it’s completely adjusted. (Some of the recommended toys above have these.
If you can push your pram with one, then take a toy with the other one. For some babies, if the toy is only hanging they won’t pay attention to it.
Hold the toy and shake it while making funny faces.
If your baby is 6 months old and above you can install a tray on the stroller. Put the toys there and let them play.
You can do this while moving or standing. There are big trays so you will be able to put as many toys as you like.
Are Hanging Car Seat Toys Safe?
I have done my own reading on this issue, and a site I came across commented on this issue, which they said is not safe to do this. Which, I do agree to some extend.
I am not a professional or something but hanging the toys for while won’t do your baby any harm.
If you fixed the car seat on the pram and pushing it, there is no harm in hanging one or two toys. It’s to keep the baby busy while you are doing something else.
There is no risk of a crash like the site argued about. When at someone else home and your baby is on the car seat. There is no harm in at as well.
So, yes hanging car seat toys are safe depending on the situation. If it’s for smaller babies it’s safe not to, or if you to always keep an eye on them.
I also advise you to hang soft toys, and not hard toys because some of these can fall.
A busy baby is a happy baby.
Babies up to 6 or 1 year usually face you when they are on their strollers or prams and they do not get to enjoy other views.
Your baby needs to see different colours and shapes etc, to be able to get entertained.
Strollers arch or pram toys distract your baby from sleeping and crying. Your baby getting busy shouldn’t only be in the home, but outside too.
This will make them enjoy the strolls more and can be a lot happier, which grant you ease and less stress.
Keep your baby busy to make them happy.
