Baby toys are an essential part of early development. Not only do they provide hours of fun and entertainment, but they also encourage exploration and development of crucial skills. From as young as 3 months old, babies will start discovering their hands, become more responsive to sound and start to enjoy making noise. At this age, it’s recommended that babies begin playing with toys - particularly vibrant soft toys, sensory toys, and baby teething rings. Introduce these toys at playtime, but remember: soft toys should be kept out of sleeping environments for infants under 7 months old.
What toys are most popular for babies?
Popular baby toys often include soft toys and rattles, activity centres (like baby bouncers and play mats), bath toys, wooden toys, teething toys and building blocks, but every child is unique and will often pick a favourite themselves!
Popular newborn toys typically involve an educational or sensory element that help their body and brain grow. These include brightly colours (or high contrast black and white patterns), musical pieces to engage hearing, and various textures to explore. For older babies, shape sorters, musical toys, pull-along toys, stacking toys, soft books, ride-on-toys, playsets, and puzzles are an excellent choice.
When purchasing any toy for babies and young children, always make sure it’s safe to place in their mouth since many learn about the world around them by mouthing different objects. Whatever you decide to purchase for your baby, always supervise as much as possible and read any safety labels and directions provided.
