Best toys for parents who have limited floor space

Not every person lives in a large home and has a lot of extra space. If you have a baby you may be wondering what kind of toys you can buy that won’t take up the limited floor space that you do have. Fortunately, there are quite a few toys that are either compact in size or that can be easily folded up and put away when not in use. These are some of the best toys for parents who have limited floor space.

Baby Doorway Jumpers

When you have limited floor space you have to make use of every area of your home. One toy that will allow you to do this is a baby doorway jumper. How baby doorway jumpers work is that you simply attach them to the top of a door way and they hang down within a few feet of the ground. You place the baby in the seat and then they are safely secured in it while they jump up and down for hours. It’s a great toy to keep them entertained while strengthening their leg and stomach muscles. Babies love this type of toy so much that parents might be surprised to find that their baby wants to stay in their doorway jumper for hours at a time.


Every baby loves blocks. There’s everything from soft blocks, to hard blocks and even blocks that light up and make noise. Babies can stack them, line them up and clink them together. If you are limited on floor space you can easily store these blocks in a container and put them on a shelf when they aren’t in use. Even if you do decide to leave them out so that your baby has access to them, you will find that they don’t take up a lot of floor space as long as they are neatly stacked.


Babies of all ages tend to love playmats. They often have an attachment that looks like an arch and stretches from one side to the other. This attachment will have toys on it that a baby can kick or grab at. It’s the perfect toy to practice fine motor skills. When the baby is done playing with it you can easily fold it up and store it in a closet. It’s lightweight so it’s easy to move from one room to another as well.

Interactive Cubes

If you are looking for a toy to keep your baby entertained for a while, interactive cubes are great. They consist of different learning features on each side. For example, one side can have push buttons where they learn numbers while another side can have items that make a noise once the baby touches it. While this toy can be larger in size than other toys, there’s a lot for a baby to do with it and it can eliminate the need of many other types of toys as there are so many things for them to do with an interactive cube.
