Mom’s Top Five Toys for Babies Under 12 Months
When it comes to purchasing baby toys, you may wonder just which ones are best for your little bundle of joy. We all worry about getting low quality toys to give to our little ones. There are several toys that are simply not suitable for babies under 12 months. If you are having problems choosing the right toy, you are certainly not alone. I must have looked at hundreds of toys before I finally decided that this really should not be so difficult. Babies need to play in order to develop. Finding good toys does not have to be hard, you simply have to know which toys are best for babies and which ones should wait until your tiny little bundle gets a bit older. Here is a list of the top 5 toys in my opinion and why they are best for your baby.
Who doesn’t love the look on a baby’s face when she sees a rattle for the first time? Babies always have and always will love the noise that rattlers make. Today’s choices offer many bright colors and large shapes that are much safer than those we played with. They are a good choice for any child under 12 months.
These things are wonderful. Babies love the motion of bouncing up and down and we moms love the break that bouncers give us from rocking baby to sleep. Put your little one down and he will kick and play until he bounces himself right into a nap. Some even offer toy mobiles across the top with shiny playthings and mirrors to keep baby amused.
Another great choice. As your baby begins to grow, he may want to use his legs more. Baby gums help babies to gain more control over their arms and legs and you can change the toys to keep her busy for long periods of time.
This is a personal favorite. Books are always a good choice for children. You want your baby to learn to read at an acceptable age right? Why not get her started when she is very young. Cloth books are safe for babies, contain bright pictures and encourage children to love books when they get older.
Stackers today come in wonderfully bright colors that encourage babies to play and will help them to determine differences as they grow. They will learn about colors and shapes and eventually learn to solve puzzles using these classic gifts.
