How to choose educational toys for babies

Although there is no dearth of educational toys available in the market, it helps to make a judicious section to get the best out of them. Here we will take a look at the types of educational toys which are best suited at particular ages.

Newborn babies to three months old are stimulated by bright colours and sounds. Brightly patterned educational toys like mobiles help the baby differentiate between various colours and shapes. Baby gyms come with both lights and music and this fascinates them a lot. It also helps develop the motor skills of babies by requiring them to push, pull or kick. Jumbo Gym, Busy Bear Mirror, Farm Friends mobile are excellent choices for educational toys in this age group.

From 3 to 6 months, babies start having better control and movement over their arms and legs and toys like rattles help in their motor development. Educational toys like activity centres provide plenty of stimulation and help develop motor skills. The Jungle Pals Pushchair Arch or the Musical Arch ‘N’ Play are a few favourites.

By the time the baby is nearly a year old, he is ready for educational games like wooden blocks, stacking boxes and books. The Frog in the Box, Farm Friends Stacker, and Textured Blocks are enjoyable educational toys at this stage.

As the baby becomes more independent and starts learning how to walk between two to three years, his motor skills become more developed and pushcarts, pull along and musical toys, dolls become a favourite. Language and communication skills are also developing and some great educational games for kids at this stage include Play and Learn Puzzles, Wooden Stacking Train etc.

Educational toys for babies should thus be chosen as to best stimulate their minds and develop their motor skills.
