Toy recommendations for a 7 month old

I babysit my 7 month old granddaughter 2 days a week and she is finally ready to have some toys here to play with. I am an avid Amazon shopper but they list thousands of toys but I dont know which ones to buy. What do you recommend for her age group? Thanks!

The one thing I remember my GD having so much fun with at seven months was a set of scarves from Lakeshore. They are multicolored and come in a package of six or so. We threw them in the air,waved them around and played peek a boo over and over.

My kids loved those stackable rings that go on a center pole, largest to smallest. I think Fisher Price makes them.

My grand babies have gotten a lot of use out of small light-up keyboard toys. Toys similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/iPlay-iLearn-...5252805&sr=8-4 or this: https://www.amazon.com/STEAM-Life-Ed...252822&sr=8-59

Irish, my kids are 9 and 11 and we still have our eggs, haha! They will not give it away and swear they play with it.

I think my kids liked Sophie the giraffe and this quish my Manhattan toys. Their site has some cool stuff. https://www.manhattantoy.com/collect...sh-color-burst

Go gripper and Baby Einstein

Go Grippers are cars that have an easy to hold waffle design. They come in all different character designs.
Baby Einstein Caterpillar is just plastic balls that each have something else inside them. My grandson has loved both of these for several months. He is 9 months now.
Touchable books - My grandskn has loved all of his "Never Touch A..." books. Theyre chunky books that have different textures on every page. They rhyme, and they are all made of materials that can be wiped off when he puts them in his mouth.

Another vote for the “Never Touch a...” books. Also anything that stacks and can be knocked over.
Activity cubes that have a button for something that makes music, another to make it light up, etc.
My grandson inherited a blue plastic treasure box with a lid that opens and has a slot in top. There were big colored discs that went into slot and box either played music or made some sort of sound. He LOVED it. Might have been Baby Einstein or Fisher Price.

My guy is 9 months old. Current favourite toys are:
Books (another vote for Never Touch A, and Indestructibles books)
Pop up toy
Shape sorter
Mega blocks dump truck
Blocks for us to stack and him to knock down
Anything he can pull up on (we have a Bright Starts toy shopping cart he loves)

Anything of his sisters - particularly play food and baby dolls

Basically anything that makes noise and/or he can chew on is a hit
