Top Baby Toys for Children up to 1 Year

(0 reviews)

Playing with toys is an integral part of growing up and most childhood enjoyment and learning happens through toys. But choosing toys for your little one can be quite a task these days as markets are flooded with a huge variety.

Thursday, April 27th, 2017

You may consider buying the following toys for your little one:

The selection of toys must be based on the child’s interests and physical and mental abilities. Always check the age group for which the toy is made.

Active Play Toys - Your 9 month old baby will definitely love to push cars on rollers or wheels.

Manipulative Toys – Toys such as colourful balls, soft blocks, rounded wooden blocks, pop-up boxes, squeeze-squeak toys, discs, keys on ring and stacking ring cones can engage and interest your baby for quite some time.

Make Believe Play Toys - Rag dolls, stuffed toys, hand puppets and a simple safely mounted mirror can also attract infants. In fact, your little one will enjoy seeing his or her reflection in the mirror!

Creative Play Toys - Musical toys ranging from simple rattles to musical boxes will thrill your baby. You can also give your baby paper and crayons and watch him or her scribble away!

Books - Your one year old will enjoy peek-a-boo- books, picture books and musical books.

Just remember a few things:

The toy must be well constructed and safe for your baby. It should be durable and have no small portions poking out.

Ride-on toys are not recommended for a one year old.

The toy may be safe, but your baby has a tendency to mouth things.  So keep a watch over your baby while he or she plays with a toy.

Avoid buying higher age group toys just because they are attractive. By the time your baby grows up, they will be either broken or ruined.
