Developmental Toys: the Building Blocks to Success!

By Aarav Subscribe to RSS | January 9th 2012 | Views:

A new born is welcomed with great fanfare in every home and all parents leave no stone unturned when purchasing all that their little darling would want to play with. Gone are the day when 3 months old babies were just fed or put to sleep when they cried. Now, you can witness monumental milestones in their growth with each passing day and a lot of credit for that goes to the developmental toys available on the market today. The first tool of communication for parents is of course speaking and singing, and soft music or lullabies soothe and relax your child. You can introduce your baby to the world of sound and colors by toys like a hanging crib mobile, musical play toys, soft toys and toys with mirrors. These toys help in visual tracking and encourage the baby to touch and feel whilst also enhancing their listening skills. Most importantly these products also help to calm and soothe the baby when it is restless.

The stage of awareness starts when your baby is 3 to 6 months old and you can see that babies start responding to noises and will try to mimic sounds. So this is the ideal time to set the stage for language development and listening skills. You can keep your baby alert by using baby rattles, and toys with sound and music. You can see that its curiosity will make he or she try to touch and grab toys which is your baby’s first step to creative play and exploration. The ideal products to encourage this are activity toys, toys on a ring, hand held rattles and toys with friendly faces, sounds, bright colors and texture. Give your baby toys which squeak, rattle and spin and see the magical smiles and giggles on your their face!

Your baby is in the exploration stage when it is 9 to 12 months. This is the time when his or her hand-eye coordination is making giant leaps and every toy is noticed with more detail and curiosity. Use bath toys when bathing your child to encourage them to not only play and have fun, but to also enhance their knowledge of gripping and release and cause and effect! You can also introduce your baby to learning toys like a musical clock for an understanding of numbers. When teaching and fun is intertwined, your baby will love learning!

Your toddler becomes more engrossed in fast moving objects with a sense of ownership as they begin to recognize their own things. This can be seen when your child is 12-24 months. To develop motor skills, ideal toys to introduce your toddler to are push and pull toys, stacking and building toys, and toys that encourage imaginative play and role playing. Give your child the best head start in life with the right choice of development toys!
