A child is a bundle of joy to us and to ensure that this bundle is cheerful it is necessary to provide him with the appropriate toys that make him gurgle with joy and also aid in a holistic development of the mind and body.
Choosing the right type of toy for your child is therefore of the utmost importance. Baby toys are generally made from soft materials and / or virgin plastic so as to minimize the chance of scratches, rashes or cuts and abrasions on a baby’s tender skin. Toys for babies are also generally in bright and contrasting colors so as to “literally catch the child’s eye”. Many baby toys make simple sounds when manipulated to catch the little owner’s attention. Specially made chewable toys are also available to help teething babies.
Before buying a baby toy, you should always keep in mind the following safety measures to ensure your baby’s well-being:
1. The toy material must not cause irritation or injury to the child.
2. The toy should have no detachable parts that the child could choke on.
3. The toy material must not be carcinogenic.
4. Toys must be washable to ensure good hygiene.
5. It should be a product of an established manufacturer.
Once the above precautionary measure has been observed, you will need to choose the right toy for your child according to the age group. A baby up to the age of one goes through a varied number of stages that require an ever-changing plethora of toys to meet their current needs. Listed below are the various stages into which you can divide your baby’s first year in order to give you the necessary information on when to buy what kind of toys.
o 0-1 Month: The baby with limited use of his senses will prefer toys with bright and contrasting colors. Rattles and soft toys could probably excite them more.
o 1-3 months: a little more mature with fine motor skills, the baby will love the toys that can be held and played with. Elastic and collapsible plastic toys or plush toys with movable appendages are popular.
o 3-6 months: the baby is starting to grow teeth, so the world is an exciting place where everything is ready for a bite! Gummy toys made of plastic or rubber (not small enough to swallow), stackable colorful blocks and toys with complex sounds are your best bet for “grabbing” your child’s attention.
o 6-9 months: Babies are usually sitting and trying to crawl by now, so colorful balls and moving toys that stimulate the baby to chase them and in the meantime start crawling, are the toys to buy.
o 9-12 months: now the baby is on the move and desperately tries to grab things to get up and explore the surroundings. A four-wheeled walker is the need of the hour. In addition to that, small and complex shape recognition puzzles and building blocks can also be provided.
So, now that you know what to look for, when shopping for the right toy for your baby, you better go find a reason in your bundle of joy for cooing for joy!
