The first year of your child's life is a time of great importance for their mental and physical development. How can you help make the most of this time? By giving them the best resources, such as developmental baby toys. Unlike toys that simply entertain your child, these toys are meant to build up your baby's fine motor skills, help with recognition of sights and sounds, familiarity with various textures and brain development. Some of most popular items in this category of toys are baby mobiles, gyms, play mats, jumpers and bouncers. Read on to learn more about each of them and how they can add to your baby's growth!
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 the list of educational toys for your little one, you may include bath toys. The brightly colored and squeaking rubber duckling and bath puppets make bathing a fun activity for babies. Make sure that all the baby toys are made of non-toxic materials and do not have sharp edges.
Besides, educational purposes, some baby toys can help your baby learning about real-life skills. It can be accomplished through providing toys that mirror real life. For example, Baby Einstein Video and DVDs such as Baby Da Vinci: From Head to Toe, Baby Einstein Neighborhood Animals, Baby McDonald A Day on the Farm, Baby Neptune Discovering Water, Discovering Shapes, Baby Shakespeare - World of Poetry, Baby Mozart - Music Festival. They are the ideal platforms for your baby to learn about the real world, about the animals in the world and the water world, get knowledge about our body from head to toe, get in touch with the beautiful poems from Shakespeare and wonderful music from Mozart. For these kinds of baby toys, don't worry about whether a toy is for a boy or a girl. Consider instead what the baby will be learning using the toys.
Babies cannot communicate verbally so instead they start by touching and feeling things. Learning toys are a great way to develop these skills, such as books with different textures on each page, shiny, rough, matt, soft, fluffy etc are readily available. This touching can then help bonding with parents as baby will now know how to reach out and touch faces, smiles, hair - life changing moments.
