So, if you were looking to get Emerson a present she'll take apples. Not to eat silly but to play with. We gave her one this w.e. and it kept her occupied for a very long time. It's like her own baby size ball! She carried it around while crawling. Threw it, chased it. Wow, if I knew this was all it took to keep her out of trouble I would have tried it a long time ago.
