Toys that foster the imagination are great for both boys and girls, toys like blocks or stacking cups can be very educational. They are designed to stimulate your baby's brain and sense of coordination as well as help with item recognition. There are blocks with animals, abstract shapes, cars and instruments inside. Indeed, toys are one of the best friends that a baby may ever have.
As the baby grows, you can incorporate block puzzles and let the baby play with them. You can even show them how to go about arranging them and then let them do it on their own. The types of toys should change with age. The toys are meant to stimulate the five human senses of touch, sight, sound, smell and taste and in turn this will create attention, curiosity, memory and also help the development of the nervous system.
It's a dilemma that you'll face quite a few times throughout your parenting life - do you go for something that you know the kids will love and go crazy over (usually either junk food or based on a TV character), or do you buy something that's healthy - for either their body or mind? Fortunately, it's a topic that you won't have to tackle for some months after you become a parent, as there is little difference in toys for babies. Today we explore how you can create a healthy mix of 'fun' baby toys and educational baby toys from ages 0-3.
Before buying toys, there are certain things which need to be kept in mind. The toys must aid in the growth and development of the child, mentally. The baby toys need to be chosen such that they are apt for the age of the baby. It is no use buying toys which need to be used when the baby grows up. There are certain baby toys, like those with projectiles. These are, at best, avoided for babies below five. In case the baby is about two years or three years in age, the toys must be of a size smaller than the baby's mouth. This is necessary so that the baby does not choke up while trying to swallow the toy. They must not have any part which can be torn off and put inside the mouth.
So now you have a good idea of the positives and negatives of plush and plastic toys.. Toys that can serve double duty, like a plush toy for sleeping and a plastic toy for mental learning, are awesome. If your child is a boy, try a play pen toy or a construction set. If you have a baby girl, you might select a tea set with various figurines or perhaps a infant doll home.
The third one that you might give to a baby is a soft ball. Babies love to see rolling balls and chase it until they tire themselves out. The ball is soft like a pillow so when it bounces back to the baby, the baby will not get hurt. They can throw it enjoy fully or the babies can use it as a pillow when they sleep.
