We are also going to discuss baby toy tips for the crib and play pen. The tips for the crib are simple. Please use large stuffed or plush toys that do not have small parts that can be torn or chewed off as babies love to put things in their mouths. Also avoid those stuffed animals that have a pellet stuffing such as beanie animals. Play pen toys are just a little more complicated than the crib as this is usually the place that the baby spends the most time awake so harder plastic toys and wood toys would be acceptable here for short time spans or under direct supervision.
Babies are the most wonderful gifts to parents. This is why parents also give the best to their babies. They always want to see their babies happy and content. Even newborn babies will need toys to be happy and busy. If you think that only toddlers can play with so many toys, well, even newborns have tons of different types of toys to play with. Parents just need to choose wisely on the toys that they are purchasing for their newborn babies. It is important that the newborn baby toys are safe, non toxic and hypoallergenic. Here are some examples of newborn baby toys that parents may purchase for their little one.
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.
Do not get so carried away with the development factor that you fail to realize that toys are meant to be playthings for the baby. The infant will only play with the toys which provide pleasure. The toys should look bright and make sounds; remember that toys are the first objects to enhance the five senses of your baby.
When getting baby toys, it is important to go for those which will last for a longer time so that they can be passed from one baby to another as they grow to new toys. Before your baby is strong enough to write anything, you can get cloth books which normally come printed with different shapes in different colors. Such kind of toys help in the long term development by encouraging pre reading skills while the different shapes assist in learning things like animal names, alphabets as well as numbers.
Child experts recommend vibrant, hands-on activities and baby toys will have much more of an impact on your baby's cognitive development than more passive items, like video games. While it may seem as though educational video games can help your child to master problem-solving, these toys are best suited for children ages five and up, who've passed the developmental stage where hands-on experiences and sensations are so important for intelligence. Given this evidence, it seems as though the more "old-fashioned" toys like dolls, baby gyms, musical items, shape sorters, storybooks, simple musical instruments and other toys are much more suited for children ages 6 months to 2 years of age.
