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.
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.
In a word: yes! Psychologists, medical researchers and scientists have conducted enough research to show that babies are born hardwired to learn. As your baby has to learn extremely quickly how to adapt to the world around him (in fact, the amount of knowledge that every baby has to learn in order to survive is staggering when you think about it!), this means that his brain is hardwired with neurological pathways that are ready to learn from experiences, sensations, sounds and the like. It stands to reason that the more complex the interactions with experiences and sensations are, the more likely it is that your child will have to develop more complex cognitive abilities to adapt. This research has given rise to a whole new industry of baby toys, such as Baby Einstein® or Baby Beethoven® - all of which are designed to give your child complex interactions and experiences that serve to invigorate cognitive ability.
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.
Something simple: Baby toys are supposed to increase in complexity as a baby learns new skills. So, as you choose a baby toy, look for something that fits their skill level, or exceeds it by just a little bit. You want to help them develop their basic motor skills, and attune their fine motor skills. So, toys that can be pushed, pulled, tugged, etc. are all great, but keep them simple. Sometimes the best toy for a baby is a set of brightly colored blocks that the can stack, push over, throw, etc. Other great baby toy gift ideas for improving locomotive skills include plastic animals, dolls, rattles, and any toy that can help improve attention span, hand-eye coordination, and manual dexterity.
The third one that you might give to a baby is a soft ball. Babies love to see rolling balls and chase it until they tire themselves out. The ball is soft like a pillow so when it bounces back to the baby, the baby will not get hurt. They can throw it enjoy fully or the babies can use it as a pillow when they sleep.
