Toys are super cute and colorful which make even, adults find it hard to pick one and drop another equally nice toy. Though there are oodles of tiny baby toys in toy stores, there are some factors you should never neglect when buying toys for an infant. Unless otherwise you will buy all the teeny weeny toys and end up having a crazy toy store at home.
Age of your baby
Whether you are buying toys for your own infant or as a gift, you have to first think of the age of the baby who is going to play with the toys you are going to buy. Because they will be useful and the baby will enjoy only if the toys are appropriate to that particular age. Just like you do other baby products shopping, this should also done with so much of attention. Always check out the age recommendations and the material the toy is made out of. There is no point of buying a shopping cart full of toys, if your infant cannot play with them.
Safety and risks
Even if you are buying the most expensive toy in the store, if it can cause possible threats to your beloved infant, you are making an extremely wrong decision which you would regret of. Toy manufacturers always take safety into account, but it is your responsibility to double check it. A new born will drop, kick, bang and even bite the toy you give. So the toy should be durable and it should not come with any tiny parts that the infant can take off. And also ensure the paint used in the toy is non-toxic and would make no harm to the infant.
Buy simple ones
Try to buy the simplest toys all the times. Because the first thing is a baby still have no idea how to play with a complicated toy. If the toy is simple, most probably it will last longer. There is no proper way to play with a toy. If your infant comes up with a new way, let him play and enjoy. For this purpose, simple toys are the best. You can easily find such baby product online in different toy stores.
Your baby might learn new things even through the simplest toy you give to your infant. Toys are a great way to stimulate the senses of your infant in effective way. For instance a toy that makes sound would help to stimulate your baby’s hearing. If you give your infant the correct toy, it would help develop his/her hand and eye coordination abilities, fine motor control and many such abilities.
