Toys that foster the imagination are great for both boys and girls, toys like blocks or stacking cups can be very educational. They are designed to stimulate your baby's brain and sense of coordination as well as help with item recognition. There are blocks with animals, abstract shapes, cars and instruments inside. Indeed, toys are one of the best friends that a baby may ever have.
It's not easy to find a suitable baby toy as you have to take so many factors into consideration and there are so many toys in the market. The mother who has just come out of the pregnancy period is quite stressed out and it's difficult for her to focus her attention on many things. A suitable baby toy at this stage can draw the attention of the child and leave the mother to do the various chores of her everyday life. It is essential to do some window-shopping of the various toys in the market before selecting the perfect baby toy. The important factors that you need to consider are given below.
There are many artificial toys in the marketplace, which contain lead paint and other chemicals. Everyone knows that lead is dangerous as well as other chemicals. For teething babies, get them a nice organic toy because they will find a way to put it in the mouth and will not get hurt. This type of item is made of natural materials, which cannot irritate gums even if bruised. There are very many options available for all in the marketplace today.
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.
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.
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.
