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"!
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.
When looking for educational baby toys, also take a look at soft toys. Babies naturally gravitate towards soft toys, especially if they are colorful, and this is a great time to start teaching your child about colors. One wonderful toy for a baby is a set of stuffed trucks and cars. You can have your child start to identify these things as well as work with him or her colors and different sizes. Soft toys are also usually a good idea for children because they cannot hurt themselves on them. Your baby will be able to play as roughly as they please without the risk of having those toys break. Similarly, you can find soft toys that your child can build with, or that she can stack. Like the wooden toys mentioned above, she will be learning fine motor control and in the case of the soft toys, there will be less chance that she will injure herself on a sharp edge.
There are many different innovative soft pillow infant toys to choose from such as: dog toys, giraffe toys, bear toys, rabbit toys, pig toys, and other toy animal soft pillows such as the panda, bear, dolphin, frog, kitty, bumble bee, and much more. Babies loves these soft toy pillows and many of these pillow playthings are set aside after the infant has grown so they can be past down from generation to generation. The most innovative benefit of a soft pillow toy is that it can be used as both a pillow and toy. These playthings should be big enough and soft enough to provide comfort when the infant lays his or her head on it.
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.
Once baby starts to crawl everything is within their reach. At this time baby toys that have a push and chase element can retain baby's interest and a great source of fun. Your baby is now increasingly able to manipulate toys and the idea of taking something apart followed by putting it back together provides great fun. Thus, toys like blocks or beads that clip together or a box with slots for things to go through are much valued. Your baby will also enjoy hiding and re-appearing or something as simple as a play tunnel can provide hours of crawling through and sitting in out of sight. Such toy will help enhance awareness of space and self-confidence within your baby.
