It’s in a child’s nature to love playing with toys. The fun, colorful and educational toys are an indispensable part of everyone’s childhood memories. Our childhood would never be complete without toys. For the kids, not only it can bring fun and joy to them, but also help to develop creativity and enhance their Intelligence Quotient (IQ). As a parent, choosing toys for your baby is a learning skill, many have no idea what toys are appropriate for your baby by age. Reading the following lists of suggested toys for babies of different age, which may help you make the right choice.
Toys for birth to 6 months.
Babies like to gaze upon other’s face—following them with their eyes. Typically, they prefer attractive faces and bright colors. Babies can reach, be fond of what their hands and feet can do, lift their heads, turn their heads toward sounds, put things in their mouths, and much more! You can buy some staffs they can reach for, hold, suck on, shake, or listen to, look at.
Toys for 7 to 12 months.
Older babies are movers—typically they like going from rolling over and sitting, to scooting, bouncing, creeping, pulling themselves up, and standing. They understand their own names and other common words, can identify body parts, find hidden objects, and put things in and out of containers. You can buy some staffs to play pretend with, drop and take out, build with.
Toys for 1-year-olds.
One-year-olds are on the go! Typically they can walk steadily and even climb stairs. They enjoy stories, start saying their first words, and can play next to other children. They like to experiment—but need the parent to keep them safe. You can buy some staffs to read, paint.
Toys for 2-year-olds (toddlers)
Babies are learning language at a very rapid pace. But they prefer doing a lot of physical “testing”: jumping, climbing, hanging by their arms, rolling, and rough-and-tumble play. They have good control of their hands and fingers and like to do things with small objects. You can buy some staffs for solving problems, or pretending building, picture books with more details.
