Toys help babies and toddlers’ development

Toys are fun for kids but they also offer multiple opportunities for learning. Great toys engage a child’s senses, spark their imaginations and encourage them to interact with others. Read our blog post on play ideas for babies and toddlers for more.

Toys for babies

Babies are eager to discover more about the world around them and learn from every new experience. Toys with colours and sounds are always very popular – although you may get tired of the nursery rhymes many play. Baby toys must be safe for this age-group and include lots of different activities to engage all the senses. As they grow older, babies will need age-appropriate objects to help build motor skills and hand-eye coordination.

Toddler toys

Toddlers are more mobile allowing them to choose from a wider range of toys. As they grow, the opportunities for educating through play grow too. Toys that encourage building, sorting, numbers and colours can help prepare children for nursery and school. Playing simple games with toddlers teaches them important skills such as sharing and taking turns. Well-chosen outdoor toys such as ride-ons, water and sand play and first trampolines are also great toys for toddlers.
