In a word: yes! Psychologists, medical researchers and scientists have conducted enough research to show that babies are born hardwired to learn. As your baby has to learn extremely quickly how to adapt to the world around him (in fact, the amount of knowledge that every baby has to learn in order to survive is staggering when you think about it!), this means that his brain is hardwired with neurological pathways that are ready to learn from experiences, sensations, sounds and the like. It stands to reason that the more complex the interactions with experiences and sensations are, the more likely it is that your child will have to develop more complex cognitive abilities to adapt. This research has given rise to a whole new industry of baby toys, such as Baby Einstein® or Baby Beethoven® - all of which are designed to give your child complex interactions and experiences that serve to invigorate cognitive ability.
Baby toys that encourage interactive play are often the most celebrated by child experts, as during the first six to twelve months of life, your child uses interactive experiences in order to improve hand-eye coordination and form a rudimentary vocabulary of a few basic words. Toys that fuel your child's desire to learn, sense and experience through interactions will only help to encourage his intelligence, as it will speed along mental development. Additionally, goal-oriented toys (such as kitchen play sets, pails and shovels, plastic toolboxes and other popular items) help babies to learn to imitate grown-ups, increase their vocabulary and start to experiment with their surrounding environment. Since this developmental stage typically occurs around 18 to 24 months, it's no wonder that parents affectionately refer to this period of childhood as "the terrible twos"!
Since babies and infants can develop at different paces, it is a matter of finding the learning toys that your baby enjoys most and those that keep their interest the longest. With innovations in the hands-on designs of today's educational infant toys, there are many different ones to choose from that offer interactive fun, while developing their skills.
House hold objects as toys give babies the opportunity to copy their parents. For example toy phones, from a young age babies recognise what holding a phone looks like from seeing their parents holding one - although be careful, many toy shops sell the old fashioned types of phones with the receiver, my son had no idea this was a phone, so we gave him one of our mobile phones to play with and he knew in an instant to hold it to his ear or to press buttons.
When a baby comes into the world, it is important to get it toys after the first few weeks. The toys not only keep the baby occupied, they also play a great role in the baby's development. There are different types of toys; some of which include educational toys, development toys and even play toys.
Safety is the most important criterion as far as the selection of a suitable baby toy for a baby shower party is concerned. Everyone knows that the moment a child gets a baby toy, it tries to put it in its mouth. This is where the safety factor comes into play. You have to ensure that the toy is not painted with any toxic substance, as this can be very harmful to the child. Moreover, you should check the toy and ensure that there are no small-unconnected parts with the toy as the child is likely to put these parts in its mouth and swallow them. This can lead to serious consequences. The other safeguard is that the baby toy should not be fragile because if it breaks easily, there would be sharp edges that can injure the child and anyone else who might step on it accidentally. Moreover, you should also look out for fast moving parts and avoid buying such toys, as the child can get hurt.
