Safety first. Choose nontoxic finishes. Fur or hair should be short and firmly attached. Look out for any dangly beads or threads, since these can pose a choking hazard. There should not be any removable parts on stuffed toys for a baby. If a baby toy comes with optional clothing, lay this aside until the child is older. Make sure any tags are removed. However, if there is a well-sewn permanent label on the toy, many babies love to touch and hold this part.
The baby gym is one of those "must have" first year of life toys, like baby mobiles. These gyms provide endless play that appeal to all of the senses. Soft, bursting with color, shapes, light and sound, these gyms are perfect for babies of all ages. Lay baby down for tummy time and they'll enjoy grasping the attached toys and mirrors or lay them on their back so they can reach for the various objects hanging from the arches.
Your baby is naturally born with a grasp reflex. You only have to put a finger into the palm of the tiniest baby to see this at work as they will surprisingly grip it firmly. Toys which usually can be grasped such as rattle or soft toys can help this grasp reflex develop as your baby discovers to hold the toy and move it around. Such grasping toys should have a variety of surfaces including hard, soft, ridged or rough to provide the baby with a range of touch sensations.
Even at a very young age, some toys are made specific for boys and girls. Generally, baby boys play with construction toys and baby girls with doll houses. But babies do not really understand the differences between the two and would be more than happy to play with either one or both. More often than not, babies play pretend games when they use their doll houses or construction toys. When baby boys play with their sister's or friend's doll houses, for example, they usually play a special role in the pretend game. Simple building blocks are one of the most popular construction toys that can also be used for babies' pretend games. Babies can enjoy endless hours building pyramids with their blocks, knocking them over, and then building them again.
Some of the most popular infant toys are the wooden beads maze toys and the soft books that are capable of making sound. Another popular learning toy for babies and infants are the mobiles that feature stuffed animals and play happy music, with the push of a button. While the baby's eye-hand coordination can be enhanced, their sense of sound is stimulated. As the child gets closer to walking stage, there are push-along toys that are perfect to develop mobile skills and an infant ride-on toy is helpful for those that are more coordinated, physically.
For a baby who is three months old and up, you can choose a big doll to allow grasping. Babies this big likes gripping tight and will not let go of cute wooden baby toys. That is to say, that you have to focus more on beautiful colors to help kids in their sensory and motor development. Some of their functional dolls combine wood, fabric and water based paints as construction materials.
