There isn't only a single range of baby toys for babies, there are a thousand types of toys that babies can play and learn with. But the catch is this that the toys need to be age appropriate. There are different types of toys for every age, starting from when the baby is only 3 months old to the age where he looses interest in toys.
What are the age appropriate toys?
First 6 Months
The baby starts wanting to grasp and pull at some point in the first 6 months, after the 3rd month, the baby will get excited about anything that you move into her line of vision, her hyped near sightedness just makes the experience more intense. It's a age where music is also very fascinating for the child, if you buy baby toys that makes sound by moving or shaking them, it'll make your child experience the new dimensions. You can play lullabies on music systems or small MP players, they work as lullabies.
In the first few months when the baby can only try to hold his toes in his hands or put them in his mouth and stare up at the kids toys hanging from his crib or play gym, you need to provide him with toys that are attractive enough so he tries to grasp them, reach out for them. It'll improve his body movements and make the muscles stronger, it's all part of the growing process. Little things that might not matter but actually do—in a favourable way.
- When They Learn To Crawl
When the babies can sit properly and crawl, you can level up a notch by buying solid Children toys that can be easily handled by a child. That includes the complex problem-solving toys with many pieces, for e.g blocks, Legos etc. You can also purchase toys that have recordings of poems in them. Alphabets and numbers, reciting them will educate your baby about different learning points.
The toys don't really need to be made of soft material, as the child grows up it starts to get strong enough to handle small mishaps. They aren't as sensitive as the first few months.
Age appropriate educational toys always help a lot, there's no use of buying a toy that's not going to be beneficial for the baby. A toy needs to help the baby's physical side as well as the emotional one, both at a time.
