There are lots of perfect toys or dolls to choose from and it is up to you to decide what kind of toy you will give to your child. You can search toy stores or even the internet for the perfect friend for your baby. But first let us know the types of toys you might choose from. And here they are.
As you go on to choose the most appropriate toy for your baby, consider a few things. First, reflect on your child's age. Perhaps you have both little infants and toddlers in your house and they all need new playthings. Manufacturers of these toys base their creative toys' construction upon the growth and development phases of kids. That means that your toddler and a few weeks baby will get very different toys.
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.
Teether and rattles: These toys are universal favorites. Rattles and teethers are an absolute must for a baby. Tethers', as the name suggest, aid the baby during its teething phase. A rattle too is very useful. These toys are traditional favorites but have gradually modified themselves. Nowadays, they are available in a large number of designs, colors and shapes. The rattles come in sets as well. Sometimes they are shaped like classic Disney characters or sometimes multi colored. These are not very expensive but are ideal gift items for a baby.
As the baby grows, you can incorporate block puzzles and let the baby play with them. You can even show them how to go about arranging them and then let them do it on their own. The types of toys should change with age. The toys are meant to stimulate the five human senses of touch, sight, sound, smell and taste and in turn this will create attention, curiosity, memory and also help the development of the nervous system.
Before buying toys, there are certain things which need to be kept in mind. The toys must aid in the growth and development of the child, mentally. The baby toys need to be chosen such that they are apt for the age of the baby. It is no use buying toys which need to be used when the baby grows up. There are certain baby toys, like those with projectiles. These are, at best, avoided for babies below five. In case the baby is about two years or three years in age, the toys must be of a size smaller than the baby's mouth. This is necessary so that the baby does not choke up while trying to swallow the toy. They must not have any part which can be torn off and put inside the mouth.
