There are so many kinds of baby toys to choose from. But the most important thing to consider when picking a baby toy is how much enjoyment it will give to the child. The physical appearance of the toy, its shape, color, and texture, determines how engaged and delighted the baby will be with his/her toy, which will allow the mother to prepare his/her food and complete other tasks, like household chores, etc. The toys should also introduce the baby to the basic concepts of shape and color. Baby toys are usually labeled according to age groups and this also helps the parent decide which toys are ideal for their child. As with any other purchase for the baby's needs, safety of the baby should always be the foremost consideration. Make sure that the material the toy is made of is not hazardous to the baby's health and that the toy itself is safe to play with, i.e., no sharp edges or not too small.
A toy that is educational: Educational toys for babies should stimulate the five senses, or at least the three most important, sight, sound, and touch. Look for toys like wrist rattles, squeak toys, pop-up toys, pull toys, musical toys, activity centers, cloth books, mirrors, and mobiles. These help with all of the above mentioned criteria, and can help you get your baby on the right track with development and learning.
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.
Then there are musical objects like cot mobiles that can be categorized as stimulating toys. It is an established fact that music both stimulates and calms the child's mind. These objects with stimulating music can be placed in the baby's cot or even in the car near the infant. Some musical CDs meant specifically for babies are also available.
In the list of educational toys for your little one, you may include bath toys. The brightly colored and squeaking rubber duckling and bath puppets make bathing a fun activity for babies. Make sure that all the baby toys are made of non-toxic materials and do not have sharp edges.
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.
