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.
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.
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!
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.
Some of the most popular infant toys are the wooden beads maze toys and the soft books that are capable of making sound. Another popular learning toy for babies and infants are the mobiles that feature stuffed animals and play happy music, with the push of a button. While the baby's eye-hand coordination can be enhanced, their sense of sound is stimulated. As the child gets closer to walking stage, there are push-along toys that are perfect to develop mobile skills and an infant ride-on toy is helpful for those that are more coordinated, physically.
Safety first. Choose nontoxic finishes. Fur or hair should be short and firmly attached. Look out for any dangly beads or threads, since these can pose a choking hazard. There should not be any removable parts on stuffed toys for a baby. If a baby toy comes with optional clothing, lay this aside until the child is older. Make sure any tags are removed. However, if there is a well-sewn permanent label on the toy, many babies love to touch and hold this part.
