When a child is two months old, it starts becoming aware of what is happening around it. This is the stage when you should introduce it to a baby toy and let it mingle with it. This is also the time when the child starts getting aware of contrasts in colors and as such the toys should preferably be in black and white or in contrasting colors.
Consider whether a toy is mainly decorative or to be used for stimulating early learning. This may not always be obvious. While most baby toys, like rattles, will be outgrown, stuffed toys can have staying power. With their soft fur or hair, shiny eyes, and sometimes tails or whiskers, they offer plenty of tactile stimulation. For instance, a teddy bear's curly fur and velvet paws can offer tactile stimulation that helps baby's neurological development. Babies learn through their senses, so varying textures are very interesting. Stuffed toys often fulfill an educational component, but parents should be selective. Other important early skills include grasping, holding, and passing a toy from one hand to another. For younger babies, choose baby toys that are small enough to be held and manipulated. While older children may appreciate giant stuffed toys, they are likely to be ignored by babies.
There are so many kinds of baby toys to choose from. But the most important thing to consider when picking a baby toy is how much enjoyment it will give to the child. The physical appearance of the toy, its shape, color, and texture, determines how engaged and delighted the baby will be with his/her toy, which will allow the mother to prepare his/her food and complete other tasks, like household chores, etc. The toys should also introduce the baby to the basic concepts of shape and color. Baby toys are usually labeled according to age groups and this also helps the parent decide which toys are ideal for their child. As with any other purchase for the baby's needs, safety of the baby should always be the foremost consideration. Make sure that the material the toy is made of is not hazardous to the baby's health and that the toy itself is safe to play with, i.e., no sharp edges or not too small.
When you are considering the variety of learning toys for babies and infants, it is a matter of finding the ones that interest your child the most. Because babies have their own developmental pace, there are some toys that are designed for the curious active babies and there are other teaching toys that are perfect for those that are more relaxed and creative. Whether you are searching for activity cubes, soft blocks or wooden sorting toys, you are certain to find the educational baby toys that suit your infant's learning pace.
Toys should be age appropriate. Babies put everything in their mouths, so all baby toys should be designed specifically for babies. Some stuffed animals have multiple uses, such as attached teethers. For kids one year old or older, stuffed toys are available which combine activities like bowling or storytelling. Stuffed toys also comfort to kids of all ages. Holding a stuffed toy can help older babies and toddlers get through difficult days.
An easy suggestion: Do not pick out your child's toy using what you want. That can be a colossal blunder. Think about exactly what would entertain or even invigorate your son or daughter. Precisely what colorings combined with designs would they like? What do they respond to best? Finally, on the complete opposite end on the spectrum, what colorings or shapes are they scared of? Are there any animals they don't like? Then obviously, stay away from those types of baby toys.
