Choosing the right toys at the right age can help your baby develop important skills and understand the environment around him. When choosing toys, we must choose the toys suitable for the baby’s development stage. Don’t give your 12-month-old baby a toy suitable for 24-month-old babies. Babies of these two ages need different stimuli, and toys must reflect their different needs. Don’t give your baby a toy that’s too advanced or outdated. Otherwise, he will lose interest in future exploration.
Parents should provide their babies with toys that stimulate their five senses in order to promote their understanding of color, shape, structure, sound, taste, smell and so on.
Early childhood babies prefer toys that contain both inside and outside concepts and games such as building houses, building blocks, and identifying shapes and sizes.
Late infants aged 2-3 already have good fine motor skills. They are able to connect two things together, screw large bottle caps on bottles, and doodle purposefully.
In addition to continuing to develop fine motor skills, preschool babies can begin to play simple matching and memory games. It is becoming easier and easier to complete intellectual problems and match various graphics. Preschool babies like success and enjoy the pleasure of success.
Other factors in choosing toys are whether the toys are safe and durable, whether the toys have different ways of playing, whether the toys can adapt to all ages, whether the toys are interesting. A good toy should attract the baby, enable him to return to the toy again and again, and stimulate the baby’s creative thinking. A toy with only one way to play is not conducive to the baby’s imagination and creativity, and not have long-term vitality.
