Lets face it Babies shouldn't be that difficult to buy for should they? But are you really sure that the toys are safe?
You need to think more carefully before you step foot in any toy store, or even online where even more care is required. You need to make sure the toys are safe for baby!
That's the golden rule because you can almost guarantee that they will put it in their mouth, pull it apart throw it around and almost anything you can think of so every toy must be absolutely child proof!
So apart from that, buying toys for Babies is easy because they will accept and play with absolutely anything you give them even the wrapping paper!
But as a responsible adult or parent, we want to make sure that we give our children the safest and the best toys we can get for them. But generally speaking and depending on the age of the child we would prefer to buy something that will help them develop and learn or simply entertain them.
There is nothing more precious than seeing a baby happy and smiling or even hearing a baby giggle.
Mostly it is simple common sense when it comes to buying any toy for a baby, obviously it would be pointless giving a newly born baby a calculator because all they are going to do is to chew it or try to pull out its buttons etc. Okay maybe that's a bad example but I'm sure you get my meaning.
Every toy must be age appropriate and safe. In fact most reputable toy stores and manufacturers label their packaging to clearly show the ages for which the toys are most suitable for. So you will know that no small object is going to come off and pose a choke hazard. The store owners themselves would not wish any accidents to occur with any of their toys.
So here are some suggestions for you, these are the kind of thing that I would buy for our Grandchild and I thought that I would share them with you.
We have always gone for brightly colored toys because we know that they immediately attract the babies attention and using bright colorful toys encourages the baby to develop its senses and visual awareness of colors. The same goes for touch so its important to have toys that feel good with a variety of different textures that will stimulate touch, taste and smell.Next is sound anything which creates a noise even a whistle or a drum will get your babies attention.
Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Musical Toy is such a toy that can help with your child's early development plus it has the added benefit of musical notes to attract attention by using different sounds. There are seven classical melodies built into this toy, and even babies can easily change it to the next tune by pressing one of the buttons, which they will quickly learn to do. One small blessing is that you can turn down the volume, to keep the sound to a minimum if needed especially if it's been on all day! Another good feature is that a baby can easily handle the toy. The price is very reasonable too, but the main thing with any battery operated toy (thinking of Christmas Morning) is to ensure that you have a good supply of batteries or use re-chargable ones.
Another suitable toy is the VTech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker which is the toy that will grow along with your little one, while they are young, you can use the removable play panel as an on-the-floor toy or you could use it in the car, or anywhere you go. But as your child grows, it will assist him/her to get walking which won't take long, believe me.
The VTech toy has again gone for bright and attractive colors with five brightly colored piano keys that play the basic scales. Below that, the toy has rollers that spin and other buttons which produces various other sounds and some of the buttons light up. there's also a play telephone so they can chat away to there hearts content, with the added benefit, that it costs you nothing.
Another toy from VTech is the Spin and Learn Color Flashlight, using light and sound as the main attraction. It also makes five different animal sounds with lights that will cycle through its five different colors.
Once again it is easy for small hands to grasp with a ladybug styled button that will speak when it's pushed. This toy introduces your baby to numbers and it will assist them in getting the first few numbers, this toy is probably more suitable for toddlers for this reason plus it comes with batteries so you need to ensure that it is not left on for too long. The good thing with this toy is that the batteries are included, although you should get some more to keep it going, one negative point which probably applies to many of these battery operated toys is that there is no indication of how long the batteries are going to last.
Balls are always great toys for babies to play with. They love bright colors and they like to squeeze them and generally like to watch them move and bounce around. The Baby Einstein Bendy Ball in this case is made from soft, bendable plastic that a baby can squeeze, throw and generally explore even with their hands and mouths.
The Go Baby Go Poppity-Pop Musical Dino from Fisher-Price is an item that you can play on the floor with or a table top, Mum or Dad can get involved with it too. This is an interactive toy that is great for learning and is also great fun. It will certainly hold your babies attention. There are six colored balls which come with this toy and these will roll out of the dinosaur and your baby will retrieve it and put the ball back into the dinosaur shell and this process will continue along with your help no doubt. The dino should help your baby to develop his hand and eye co-ordination as well as with his motor skills.
Any of these toys will be great fun for you and your baby, you will still have to consider their age and development, although at this age it doesn't really matter what gender they are as many of these toys are targeted at both. One final thing before the toys are opened would be to thoroughly check the toys for any defects or loose objects before you hand it to your child.
