Recommended Toys for Babies From 0 to 12 Months

Christmas is approaching and time to buy gifts and games for your children. A good game can stimulate and encourage the development of your young child, which is why it is important to know how to choose correctly. We help you by giving you some clues.

Infants 0-6 months

In the first months of the child's life, about the fourth week of his life, he can hold his eyes for a few moments on faces or objects, about 30 cm away. That's why, at this age, you can start teaching them pictures, books, or hanging rattles dedicated to these ages.

At the end of the first three months, the child will be able to put certain things in their hands and put them in their mouths; this is why it is good at this age to play with the child with rattles that make some sound or made of plastic or cloth so that it can touch and absorb.

During the next three months, up to 6 months, the child begins to acquire a skill in the hands, especially increasing his visual ability, to speak aloud, it is time to show his image in the mirror, and he will enjoy a lot.

It is recommended:

Sensory-stimulating toys: different colors, textures and sounds, such as activity rugs, rattles, mobile phones or clothing stories.
Toys for very young children must meet a series of characteristics that suits them: soft, without small pieces, different fabrics and attractive colors ... games that attract your child's attention and help their growth.
Toys that help discover your child's body: teeth, rubber dolls.
Children 6-12 months

Upon reaching the end of the sixth month, the child can sit between the pillows and conversations and can only take the spoon because his manual skill has developed a lot.

In order to continue to motivate and encourage these skills for the child, we can play with them plastic cubes with different colors, or walkers, or bird balls or rolling shapes, mirrors, and toys for the bathroom.

Until the age of 9 months, the child will learn to spin, discover the sense of biting (because at this time his first teeth will come out), the diversity of sounds and music begins to attract attention, and he is already able to release an object to take another one for yourself and want to drop the toys. At this stage, a certain emotion usually occurs towards a stuffed animal, toy or blanket.

Children learn by playing at this stage, playing with them, we can use stackable cubes, which can be placed inside each other, toys wheeled, tales of textures, with different drawings ...

During the last three months of the first year of life, the child will start to crawl forward and try to stand somewhere. Open to him, the possibilities are endless.

In addition, he already understands simple concepts such as inside and out, loves to play to put things and take them, learn to say goodbye, loves to play ball, be able to return when they play with him, and he mastered the spoken language.

It is recommended:

Gameplay that stimulates exploration of objects: balls, cloth stories, cardboard and any game you can grab and explore.
Games that stimulate movement: easy to understand, swing, crawl stimuli.
Toys that stimulate emotional: stuffed animals, rag dolls.
