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.
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.
The choice of baby toys should depend on the age of the baby in question. It does not make sense to get a one month old baby crayons and puzzle toys. Instead, newborns should be bought soft and light toys which come in different attractive colors to keep them occupied. By the time the baby is attaining his first year on earth, you can start bringing in toys like puzzles and those that produce different sounds. These toys are really helpful in the development of the baby.
Once your baby has better developed sensory skills and it really getting to grips with their baby toys, they will then have gained enough strength to investigate movement and ways to test their strength. This means a whole new set of toys, the old ones - such as the mobile over the cot will just get pulled down by now. Baby walkers are a great way for babies to start getting upwardly mobile! They can pull themselves up into a standing position and then use them to lean on as they move and walk. Do shop around for your baby walker though, there are a great variety of them about, some transform into little carts, or some have a carry bit for building blocks etc - more toys for your money!
At first, the best type of toys for your baby are those that hang above their head. As babies are unable to sit up until a few months old, laying down looking at a ceiling all day can get pretty boring! Babies also spend a lot of time in their cots so having a mobile hanging over the top is a great way to give them something to look at, and make them happy.
Baby's just love to explore and it won't be very long before they are able to move towards objects that interest them. You can use interesting toys to grab your baby's attention, use baby toys to encourage your baby to learn to roll, learn to crawl and eventually learn to walk.
